The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to journalist Lex Falk, but when he gets the runaround from the military, his interest is piqued. He gets chipped inside the head of a combat veteran. When the soldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get back home again...and blow the lid off the whole damn thing.

Dan made his name in the tie-in SF and Fantasy fiction field, selling more than 1.2 million copies in English language of his Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 novels for Games Workshop's Black Library imprint. They've also been translated into ten other languages. He's also recently made the UK fiction charts with original Torchwood and Doctor Who novels. His comicbook scripts, for major publishers such as Marvel, DC Comics and the UK's 2000AD, have attracted critical plaudits and strong sales on both sides of the Atlantic.

Abnett's Embedded has to be the best sf thriller I've read in a decade. Or more.
It's a refreshingly new take on human colonisation of the stars as seen through the eyes of a jaded journalist. If you like your future full of military action, politics that mirror those of today, and characters that climb off the page and grab you by the throat, then this is your book.
It's an overused cliche, but it's true in this case: I found Embedded "unputdownable"!
"Abnett takes an ingenious idea and produces a nail-biting tale that has serious things to say about war and the news media." - Eric Brown, The Guardian "Dan Abnett makes war so real you want to duck." - SciFi.com "The cinematic scope and dizzying vision we're shown puts most recent SF movie epics into deep shade." - SF Site "Abnett delivers the kind of pulsating military sci-fi that we all know he can" - Graeme's Fantasy Book Review
