Publisher's Summary

The ATLAS mechanized battle suits are the pinnacle of military technology, boasting awesome destructive power - but what is behind the armor is only human. Rade Galaal, elite soldier and ATLAS operator, has been tested - and broken - by savage battles and devastating losses. Now, an old enemy poses a new threat.
The vile insectile aliens that once threatened Earth have regrouped to engineer a new apocalyptic assault on mankind, and the ATLAS mechs are called to defend the very survival of the human race.
On the desolate, far-flung moons of Tau Ceti II, there will come a reckoning. Earth's adversaries are legion, and the planet's soldiers - for all of their rigorous training and amazing ordnance - are only flesh and blood. But they possess a defiant will to survive. Will Rade find the strength to reforge his shattered spirit and defeat the alien onslaught before all is lost?

ATLAS 3: Join Mil SpecOps & fight in an ATLAS mech

SciFi Mech Thriller: that’s ATLAS 3 in 3 words.

** This review has no spoilers.**

Lots of real life U.S. military personnel are apparently fans of this series. ATLAS 3 has shades of American Sniper and a James Patterson thriller, while in another way it reminds me of John Scalzi’s Old Man’s War, or Heinlein’s Starship Troopers. ATLAS 3 comprises some exciting military Spec Ops missions set in a futuristic Sci Fi environment. The tech and combat use proper military terminology and tactics, and are as realistic as you can imagine, given that this is Sci Fi. The use of technologically advanced mechs is used judiciously, adding to the complexity of the action scenes.

Once again in this instalment, Berkrot proves a wonder with a microphone, swapping personalities and accents and tone instantaneously as he switches from character to character. I laughed when reading the comedic scenes, and these are funny all over again when Berkrot orates them. I even got some jokes that I didn’t find funny while reading, because Berkrot reads them the way they are supposed to be read.

The main Spec Ops missions of Digger and Outrigger squad make up the bulk of the novel, and provide a great deal of suspense and thrills as Tahoe and Rade attempt to complete their missions. It always surprises me how much I laugh when listening to Isaac Hooke’s books, as he has a great sense of humor that Berkrot plays well as he expresses it expertly through the characters. The combat and the tension never cease, and the characters Rade, Tahoe and Shaw are very well developed throughout.

Isaac Hooke is a great writer, and 47 North has done well to have Peter Berkrot narrate ATLAS 3. Will there be an ATLAS 4? Fingers crossed!
