After hearing the trailers for Haywire over many episodes of The Dead Robot Society I decided that it deserved a read. Actually it didn't take that much persuasion as I'm pretty big into Space Opera, techno thriller Science Fiction with lots of military action thrown into the mix. Hmmm.
Super-soldiers have been developed, to fight off an alien race bent on annihilating humankind, by a mad scientist who is long gone with his technological secrets. In the course of preventing the human race from being destroyed by it's saviors a teenage boy is transformed, a lonely woman finds love and a heroic soldier finds peace.
I enjoyed the flow of the story, the development of the characters and the resolution to the problem. Liked the book and think that it deserves a prequel.
