Publisher's Summary

In the high-tech laboratories of tomorrow a new breed of super-soldier is born! 

The brutal face of warfare has been dramatically altered. Armored giants now roam the explosive fields of battle. Massive instruments of devastation with computer minds inseparably linked with the brainwaves of their human masters. They are the Warbots. Men and machines combined to create the most lethal warriors in the history of armed conflict. 

But a monstrous challenge emerges for the mechanical gladiators emanating from a country that technology forgot. As Captain Curt Carson leads his robot infantry in a daring attempt to rescue 105 hostages from the sadistic clutches of a bloodthirsty terrorist army, the soldiers of tomorrow face the butchers of yesterday in a battle for the future of the free world. 

The first book in a 12-part series that has been out of print for many years is now back!

Oddly Enjoyable

A narrator I follow closely on here and FB, KC Johnston, suggested Sean Dureggers narration, and specifically this book. Story 4Stars. It's a good story, but is definitely a bit dated. nothing jarring that takes you away from it, but it's still good, if they had half stars i'd say 4.5, but they do not. Performance 5Stars. again if they did this in figure skating type scoring i'd say 4.7-4.8 but they do not. Duregger, does an overal solid job and it's clear crisp sounds. He did a good job of being in the story and drawing in the listener, though on a very few occasions he seemed a bit stilted, but that's just nit picking. very solid job. 5stars Overall 5Stars. the narration really wins this one in the end and pushes the story up a notch. I'm going to buy a few more from this narrator and we shall see how it goes. If you like Military Sci-Fi, it's worth the credit.

A fantastic idea but needs an editor

This is like a SyFy script brought to life. The larger idea of being able to fight wars virtually and how it changes the world in which we live hangs heavy here. It's full of the basic cliches and poor writing but made all the better with Sean Duregger's narration. He's able to make the cheesy dialog work and to make the stereotypes less painful.

Enjoyable Military Sci-Fi Novel

This is an entertaining military Sci-Fi novel with plenty of robot and infantry combat. It’s interesting to listen to a SciFi book that was written in the 80s, and I think it still holds up fairly well today. The story has an original concept, especially considering when it was written. The military uses robots, piloted by people that nice and safe (for the most part) from far away, using what we would call a sophisticated immersion reality system today. The book generally moves along quickly, and I found myself listening non-stop. The narrator does a good job with all of the characters voices, but there were a few times when he mispronounced words. Overall an enjoyable military sci-fi novel, and I’m looking forward to book two. I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun with a LITTLE Cringe

Enjoyable Military Sci-fi story, some of the words used do make you cringe though (But not in a bad way). Doesn't take itself overly seriously and present from start to end.

Awesome

The story started off very dry but as it went alone you could not stop listening. The wrong very well don and you could not ask for a better narrator he was able to bring each and ever character alive and breathing and also made the listener feel he knew the characters. I always wonder what it might be like to have a robot army were human could interface with computer and this gave a view of what it could be and at the same time told what could go wrong. I do recommend this audible and wish the other books in this series was audible also

Are you lookin' for robot action, this'll do it...

The only reason that I was able to finish this book was because it has good bones, so the main action and plotline kept my interest... It certainly wasn't because of the protagonist, Capt. Curt Carson, as I found him to be a thoroughly unlikable character. He might not have been narcissistic, but he certainly loved the sound of his name, and it was used all the freakin' time, all three words strung together, not one, not two, but All Three, ALL the TiMe!!! When he kept his mind on the business of warbots and surviving the military mission, well... that was pretty okay, but as soon as he got to thinking about women, including the female soldiers on his own team, I seriously wanted OUT of this predatory perverts head! Really, don't get me wrong... there's no sex in the book (thankfully), as it's all innuendo, and implied, but that alone was uncomfortable enough to make me feel sullied and icky! Sean Duregger is an okay voice actor, but he mispronounced several words and that would often pull me out of the book... So for military action that's packed full up with robots, a big thumbs up... but, if you're looking for good character development, and a less chauvinistic overtone, you'll need to go elsewhere for your reading material.

Orgasmic!

Although this novel may not compete with the latest high-tech thrillers of today, one should keep in mind that this was written over three decades ago. One should give credit where credit is due. I found the story adventurous and fun, even if a bit lackluster. I would still spend the time to enjoy more of Stine’s writing should it become available. Three.point.five in memory. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
