Publisher's Summary

Brad Thor meets Avatar in this timely thriller for the drone age, as award-winning author Christopher Golden spins the troubles of today into the apocalypse of tomorrow.

After political upheaval, economic collapse, and environmental disaster, the world has become a hotspot, boiling over into chaos of near apocalyptic proportions. In this perpetual state of emergency, all that separates order from anarchy is the military might of a United States, determined to keep peace among nations waging a free-for-all battle for survival and supremacy.

But a conflict unlike any before demands an equally unprecedented fighting force on its front lines. Enter the Remote Infantry Corps: robot soldiers deployed in war zones around the world, controlled by human operators thousands of miles from the action. PFC Danny Kelso is one of these "Tin Men", stationed with his fellow platoon members at a subterranean base in Germany, steering their cybernetic avatars through combat in the civil-war-ravaged streets of Syria. Immune to injury and death, this brave new breed of American warrior has a battlefield edge that's all but unstoppable - until a flesh-and-blood enemy targets the Tin Men's high-tech advantage in a dangerously game-changing counter strike.

    "Good not great"

    The author did not do all the research he maybe should have. The president travels with a limo that is harden, air force one is also harden against emp. Most of the Navy ships are hardened incase they have to operate in an area that nuclear weapons are used. More detail would have made the story great.

    "Quite enjoyable"

    This isn't my usual fare being a military type thriller and all, but I enjoyed the diverse cast and action.

    "Wow, what a ride"

    Very dark, but good story. When an EMP plunges the world into chaos. Soldiers trapped in drone like armored bodies, struggle to survive and hold onto what's left of their humanity.

    Very unique approach to the standard armored mitary fiction. You will feel for these characters and the people in this fictional world.

    There are some plot holes and items that make you scratch your head. But the story as a whole, is just too good.

    Story
    "EMP the magical plot device"

    I didn't finish it I just couldn't stomach the ludicrous science used as the central plot device. My recommendation is that if you have any decent knowledge about how EMP actually works then avoid this book otherwise you might enjoy it but don't expect much it's fairly average in all other writing aspects.
