It's great to see Dan Abnett stretch out from Warhammer 40K into other fiction. Embedded is military science fiction at its best. I have been looking forward to reading Embedded ever since I saw the cover over at Angry Robot Books, I know you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but we all do and to see Dan Abnett writing a non warhammer military novel was just too much to resist.

Wow. This is just great writing. Writing! Capital double-U WRITING. Poetic! Descriptive! You can see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, and given that most of it is deadly infantry combat on another world with weapons that have (naturally enough) evolved from the deadliest and most horrifying that we already have there is plenty to see, hear, taste, and smell, right down to the metallic reek of blood. The story is credible. The combat is incredible.

A trigger warning: I am a veteran but not a combat veteran, but close enough that I know that Abnett somehow writes raw ground combat, as real as I've ever read; if you are triggered by death and dismemberment described in terms so graphic it can be painful to read, don't read this. It's rough. It's real. It's a terrific fictional yarn in the Hard Place that never took place, but I'd almost bet money Dan Abnett is a combat veteran. He knows exactly how to describe it so realistically that he might as well have filmed his book and played it behind your eyes, and as I was reading I was trying to figure out who to cast as the main characters in the film! I don't come across a lot of books that I would like to see made into movies, but this is one.

I've read a few of Dan Abnett's Black Library novels. He does write action very well, and it's the action in this that really stands out as above and beyond to me. Also, being that he is a veteran writer, he is consistent in everything he writes. If there is a detail that he wants to focus on, he makes sure to explore it and exploit it as often as is logical. It makes some of the character interactions stand out, and made the overall experience enjoyable.

I do have some issues with the book. I'm no professional critic, writer, teacher, commentator or observer of any kind, so these are just my personal opinions.

I don't think Dan is very good at world building. The book has a lot of acronymed alphabet agencies, government entities and organizations that all jumble together and clash, all in the VERY sluggish first ten chapters. Not enough detail to makes sense of the complex political climate strongly hinted at throughout the book. The terminology, colloquial language and technobabble gets really out of hand: for example, EVERYTHING has a hyphenated suffix of "-effect" added to denote synthetic goods. To his credit, the author never abandons these, regardless of how ridiculous they end up sounding. Again, he's consistent.

One problem the book has is pacing. The first 10 chapters of the book are dry, dull, and at times, tedious. You just want something to happen, already! Things start to get interesting when the main character is actually embedded, and the story hits only one slow down of note until the end.

And boy, that ending. It goes from 90 to 0 in two chapters. The author waits until about three chapters from the end for the big reveal, then wraps up the story as fast as possible within the next two. There are some important questions that I would have loved answers to, but it at least tied up the most important plot points.

At the end of it all, I feel like Dan Abnett hits his stride when things are established. He then runs gracefully with it. His competency as a writer was never in question for me, and he absolutely shines for at least two-thirds of the book. But the other third almost made me put it down out of boredom and a feeling of detachment from the world he built.

Summary: Okay overall, hard to get in to in the beginning, ends at break neck speed.

This a well paced and plotted story, like most of Abnett's writing. The problem is the world building which is rather poorly constructed with strange changes to verbs and nouns which really just detracts from the story.
Worth a read of you like military SciFi and don't mind the distraction of awkward descriptors created by "future slang" and technology based language descriptors.
The ending is also pretty perfunctory, it would have been nice to have an extra chapter to tie things together and finalize the story.

It started off very jarring with a lot of story culture speck and Way too much detail for the first 1/4 to 1/3. I know need to establish characters and landscape/ storyline but thought went too far and almost stopped reading. The the story got good, really good and more than made up for the effort. All around a solid read best was the last 3/4 to 2/3 with the idea behind a fight / war not just a war. Interesting perspective; Journalists/soldier (frontline soldier). Worth the time and cost to read.
Jorad
Very good story. Unfortunately the author was so good at depicting the MC as a sorry and cowardly reporter, that I had to stop a third of the way in. The MC had the ethics and moral compass of a paparazzi!
Feri
The beginning was a little slow, but when this book got up to full speed, it was lightening fast. The ending pulled together the beginning very nicely, so the slow buildup was necessary and valuable. Top notch writing.
Nejind
After reading Dan's Gaunt's Ghost series, it is always a waiting sense for another similar book pack with his own distinct story telling style. I think it is justified to give 5 stars for this book. If you want to try something out of common trail into something different then this book is for you.
The storyline was pretty good and I enjoyed the idea the author created with it. What I did not like was that the writing style the author used was the old school pulp detective format. The way he wrote the book made it read like an old cliche detective novel. All it lacked was the dark stormy night opening. If you like that kind of style then this book will meet your approval.
