Offical Blurb

In an eerie future that never was, but might have been, two ordinary soldiers hold the fate of a war in their nicotine-stained hands.

My Review

This is not a full length book but more a novella. Its set in a future that never happend on a war torn plain shrouded in artificial smoke, and follows the stories of two lost infantrymen.

It's an interesting premise for this story. The concepts of war within this world, is that if the enemy see you, your dead, bombed from the air or demolished by artillery. So the battlefields are swamped with artificial soke so that you cant be seen. The infantry man is too weak to survive against tanks, so tanks dominate the smoke.

It's an interesting world and presented in a pulp style that is appealing to my sci fi classic geek.

The reader is an established professional, although she never edits out her fluffs, but that said, she generally makes so few that I am amazed at the quality of her work. Anyone hiring her for voice work would likely get their moneys worth twice over! I wish I was that good.

Reading 2/3
