    One thought on “Into the Wild”

    1. Review crossposted from my book review blog.Larry Correia has kind of a reputation for writing tough, manly-man books about manly things like action and men being manly and shooting big guns and killing each other and/or monsters. And . . . well, yes, that’s true. But it’s also so much more. If that was all it is, I wouldn’t be interested, because those are by no means my favorite parts of his books. Yet he’s one of only two authors on my list of “read every book this author puts out, [...]

    2. While the first Malcontents novel Into the Storm can best be described as The Dirty Dozen set in the anachronistic Steampunk/Magicpunk universe of Iron Kingdoms during one of the major war campaign, this one is more akin to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Dooms with the Storm Knight and Stormclad Jack with all of the excitement of the '40s serials. The previous novel was a pure war adventure story, dealing with leadership and how one grows into the responsibility that comes with it, this one als [...]

    3. This is the second book in the Malcontents series, and Larry wants to write a 3rd one at some time. I can only hope that it's sooner rather than later, because I want to know how it's going to top this book. Cleasby, the lieutenant from the first book, is now the leader of the Malcontants, after Mad Madigan died at the end of the previous book. He's been tasked with providing security for a University professor and his team of archaeologists as they investigate a ruin thats been discovered in th [...]

    4. I read the first book in the series and recommend reading it before reading this book. You will like the characters and the writer really draws you into the punk and turning pages or swiping on tablet. The Malcontents really feel like a unit after 2 books. Larry Correa writes really good military action and military mind set. I am retired military and the writing resonates with me. Looking forward to more on the “Malcontents”.

    5. Fast, Fun ReadEnjoyed this but believe you need to read book 1 to appreciate fully. Most of character development occurs there and sets the background for sub-plot of a common dilemma many go through. Anyone who's had a mentor that was a 'cut above' and constantly measuring ourselves against them and believe ourselves lacking. Thought author did a nice job with plot and sub-plot, keeping it simple, uncomplicated and entertaining. Good action, some twists n turns with like-able characters. Throw [...]

    6. Into the Wild isn't quite as good as Into the Storm, at least in part because Madigan was such an awesome character, and the Madigan/Cleasby relationship that was so fun to read from book 1 is missing in book 2. There is an attempt to replace it with a Cleasby/Acosta relationship, but it's really not the same.Like all Correia books, the action scenes are epic, and the dialog is fun to read. I'm enjoying the world building. Cleasby is developing into a more interesting character, but none of the [...]

    7. Book one in the series, Into The Storm, was The Dirty Dozen in Space, and was fantastic and large-scale, one of my favorite Correia books. This story has a smaller cast, is more intimate in scope but still has a lot of action and good characters. Actually in this one I think the villains are more interesting than the good guys.A lot of fun, enjoyed it a lot but not as great as its predecessor.

    8. I like this books. Good characters, off an a little adventure, who soon find themselves in over their heads against forces far greater than they ever dreamed exist. Tough battles ensue, against long odds. Science and magic duke it out. Good villains, whom we will certainly see again. It is a quick read, and like everything Larry writes, it's engaging, and entertaining. I'll read the next book in the series.

    9. Leadership, courage, sacrifice, duty etc etc. All familiar keywords, but it is surprising how well Larry Correia weaves them together each time. As usual the most interesting character under Correia's pen is one of an unbending sense of honor and courage no matter the situation, in this case the antagonist.

    10. Darn good book. And does not have the depressing melancholy turn of fate ending you would associate with a story that has a tragic end. For the book begins with the death and loss and the story then gives the account of adventures and events that bring him to that demise.

    11. I miss Madigan, it's too bad he was killed in book 1. Nevertheless seeing Cleary develop has been interesting. Pangborn is developing in an interesting direction. Actually several characters are developing in different directions than I expected.

    12. I loved book 1. I don't think that book 2 topped it because Madigan was just a phenomenal character. This was a great addition though. I like the development of the main character and overall I love the world.

    13. Take my money alreadyLarry Correia, you did it again. Another terrific series for me to have to wait for a sequel to. The Malcontents are my new Dirty Dozen.

    14. Eh. Not as much fun as the first book. LT Cleasby can't carry the action as well as Madigan. Oh well. Hey Larry, how about another Grimnoir or MHI book?

    15. Larry can write action. Every series I've read by him has entertained and this is no exception. A must read for steam punk fans and war gamers alike. (I don't like either but enjoyed this)
