Insultingly bad. There are so many plot holes, canon contradictions and moments of sheer idiocy in this book i am amazed it was allowed to be published. Rather than giving you a prolonged example of everything in this i will cite a few examples of the quality of this book: The author believes that pistols, even when fired one handed, have a much higher accuracy than rifles. At one point a character switches weapons to effectively snipe an enemy target. Mobile walking artillery pieces are not only deployed at the very front of engagements but are used to, rather than shoot things, step on enemy infantry. The Scrin are overpowered to the point where their most basic units can kill mammoth tanks and they are badly researched. The main character gets promoted from Private to Sergeant on his first day for no decent reason and keeps getting promoted with each battle. And these are just the ones off of the top of my head. Admittedly a few of the bits with a character exploring a yellow zone are okay but even they suffer from rampant idiocy. If you want a good military novel based upon a video game try looking up the Halo books. If you want a better version of this, track down the online novel which is being written. Just don not waste your money on this.
