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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "Narrator got warjacked--still a good book, though"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Into the Wild to be better than the print version?

    Hard to say without experiencing both. I suspect that the audiobook is better.


    What other book might you compare Into the Wild to and why?

    Anything from the Warhammer 40k universe. In addition to the guns, gods, magic, and robots there are now skin-walkers, which remind me of how some people in the Warhammer universe can transform into powerful monsters.

    I suppose I can be a bit cheeky and compare Into the Wild to Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, you know, that one read in school where a guy goes to Alaska and starves in a bus. This book is the one that should be read in class.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    He did, mostly. Unfortunately, the narrator, who made some mistakes in the first of this series, made more in this book. There are multiple instances of him mixing up character voices and a couple instances of how the characters talk that don't match the situation at all. I don't recall the exact situation, but there was at least one instance where someone was supposed to be shouting and the narrator said it calmly, almost bored. The narration took a big step back on this one.

    I don't want to make the narrator sound terrible, he uses a wide variety of clearly distinguished voices that usually add a lot to the characters.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were a few instances that I laughed out loud. It was a good thing I was listening at home or I would have sounded crazy. Larry Correia does a good job at pulling off a bit of humor in his novels.


    Any additional comments?

    This book leverages a lot on the understanding of the main characters built from the previous novel. You get the CliffsNotes for each character so you know what everyone is, but not really why everyone is as they are. To get the most out of this book you should listen to the previous one, which is a great book too.

    This book is somewhat more action-oriented and less band-of-brothers than the previous one. It's a great book, go get it.

    I enjoyed the first book so much. Mr. Correia made an extraordinary world and I truly enjoyed visiting. It was so good to visit again and see how the people I'd met were doing. I can't wait to get the next book!
