Economies are collapsing, environmental disasters are widespread and war the backdrop to life. And so the military has developed a force of elite soldiers to keep the peace. A force like nothing seen before ...codenamed Tin Men, soldiers are virtually transported to inhabit robot frames in war-torn countries.
When PFC Danny Kelso starts his day shift in Syria, an eerie silence welcomes him and a patrol confirms the area is totally deserted. But when a rogue electromagnetic pulse throws everything into darkness, Danny's conscious mind is trapped within his robot body. The attack turns out to have been global - the world is facing a return to the dark ages with no electricity, no technology ...no safe zones. And the Tin Men face a race against time to save not only themselves but society as we know it.
I found this book to be a well-paced, well thought-out thriller. Every type of human emotion was covered in this gripping read. If I have one complaint it’s that I found the characters a bit hard to keep track of – being set within the military, characters are referred to by their first name, last name, rank or nickname. Even with this ‘problem’ I thoroughly enjoyed the book, from the first page to the very satisfying conclusion.
