Publisher's Summary

The Malcontents are back in action!

Into the Wild, the new novel by acclaimed author Larry Correia, picks up the story begun in Correia's previous entry in the series, Into the Storm.

Now under the leadership of the reluctant Lieutenant Kelvan Cleasby, the Sixth Platoon of Storm Knights has been ordered to accompany an archeological expedition from the Royal Cygnaran University deep into the Wyrmwall Mountains to investigate an ancient site of potentially great historical value. But what seems a simple enough assignment will rapidly turn into a test of the platoon's survival skills - an abandoned fort, the lone survivor of a horrifying attack, and a ferociously territorial tribe may be more than even the Malcontents can handle.

The Correia Continuation Magic Continues

What with the death of Lieutenant Madigan in Book 1 and the subsequent promotion and replacement of him by Lieutenant Cleasby (from Sergeant), I had feared that Book 2 would suffer. While Cleasby had proven himself on the battlefield as a capable platoon leader, he lacked the flair and dashing boldness of Madigan. Also, since this is a military novel, the expectation that it would simply be a repeat of the previous type of battle engagements.

I should have known better.

I had these same misgivings after Book 1 of his Monster Hunters, International. After all, just a chicken wings can be basted and baked in different styles, when you get down to it, they're still, essentially, chicken wings. However, what I failed to realize is that individual chicken wings don't have interesting backstories associated with them and that Larry has a way to make what seemingly should be a predictable continuation into an interesting unpredictable story. What with new character elements along with unexpected new and more deadly antagonists, this was most rewarding.

Again, the book is made even more enjoyable through the excellent narration by Ray Porter.

Great book two.

I really liked the story. I have to say though, it really could almost be a stand alone book not requiring someone listening/reading book one. However, book one was awesome, so don't skip, read both. Larry is a very talented writer.

Another thrilling adventure from Larry Correia!

Lt Cleasby returns, leading Madigan's Malcontents into the wild to escort a university expedition. What could possibly go wrong?
Lots. A thrilling ride with Headhunter the Warjack and the return of Acosta, this one keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Well done!

I am a fan of Larry Corrieas work in general and this did not disappoint. The narrator did a great job of making the characters interesting and bringing them to life. Even the best written story can be dull with a narrator that brings no emotion to the voices, but Ray Porter does an excellent job in that regard. The story is an excellent foray into the world of the Iron Kingdoms and has great pacing. The characters are fleshed out and memorable, and the antagonists have understandable motives. All in all, well worth the read.

Solid Iron Kingdoms action, Inconsistent narration

What did you love best about Into the Wild?

Everything involving Headhunter, the rebellious warjack was fun.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's a split between Acosta and Headhunter. Savio is such a unapologetically amoral presence. They are like two sides of the same extremely violent coin, with Savio being the coldly rational perfection of violence and Headhunter representing the brutal, raging complement.

What three words best describe Ray Porter’s performance?

Solid. Emotive. Inconsistent

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

I was very disappointed that Raines and Pangborn's voices from the first book were not carried through into this one. I seem to remember their voices even fluctuating during the course of this book

Needed a female voice actress

The story was entertaining, and like the first book in this series the male characters were well done, but this performance seriously required a female actress with the increase in female characters. A solid choice otherwise if you are interested in the iron kingdoms. That said the story pales in comparison to the first book.

I am a big Monster Hunters fan but I sure hope Larry writes more of these. Also, incredible performance by the narrator, just great!

Very enjoyable

very enjoyable and it can stand on it's own as a good fantasy novella. I really liked the narrator, he has a nice accent, delivery and drawl.
