Neither here nor there, a book of two parts with only light brushes between both sides. The two writers should have merged their writing styles rather than going their own ways for most of the book, corria's writing is obvious to any who know it.
Some good tense scenes with loads of interspersing dross. Overall a slow tedious read balanced by good charectors and convoluted plot.

Really pleased I discovered this book. Fast paced thriller with lots of combat, interesting characters, conspiracies and set just enough into the future to stop the reader making assumptions about the geo-political situation in which the two heroes (?) are adventuring. Better yet a sequel is out Oct 2013

A really enjoyable fast paced story, told from two different perspectives and interleaved beautifully - I really struggled to put it down.
Read on the kindle (google webscription or baen and work it out) so there were a couple of proof reading errors but that didn't detract much from a great story, really looking forward to the next two in the trilogy

Best military thriller since...ever! 29 Sept. 2011
By Zachary T. Hill - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was blown away by this book. First off, it's not set in "our world." It's a world just off set of ours. The world's a bit rougher and more cut throat. Most thrillers I've read have been technically accurate but boring or with completely lame characters. Others had great action, but completely unbelievable. This has great characters, great action and very technically competent. Really, the characters are going to make this book. The action alone would make this book a 5 star, but when you actually care about the characters the tension is even more powerful: and let me tell you about the tension. Tense doesn't begin to describe it. These characters are really in peril. As a combat veteran, I appreciated the accuracy of the arms and the use of them. They didn't make the combat unbelievable with jumping sideways with two pistols, but they made it more like the literary equivalent of a Micheal Mann film. (Heat, Collateral, etc Realistic but still amazingly entertaining. Also, the villains are just as hatable as the heroes are likable. Big Eddie is surprisingly threatening and creepy and the government guy (forgot his name) is like that boss that thinks he knows everything and owns you. We've all had one of those. If you don't mind a completely awesome book with amazing characters and brilliant action, then this book is for you!

When was the last time you had a love affair with a book? 10 Mar. 2012
By Regrae - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1994 the movie Speed came out with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock. I remember it well and I loved it. I remember a review that said it had enough things going on for three movies. That 1994 review could fit Dead Six by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari.

Dead Six reads like two books, by two authors one writing each book, and the two are melted into one book. There is the "killer's" book and there is the "thief's book" both of which are happening at the same time and at the same place. Each character keeps getting in the way of the other and this is a pleasure for the reader. Each character is trying to solve a problem, one is overthrowing a government and the other is trying to steal a .... oh I don't know what it was he was trying to steal. Both story lines cross each other and are erily simular in characters in each book and in action.

As for the reader, while this sounds confusing, this is all easy to follow and really keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. The main characters meet and try to kill each other or rather carve each other up. The two "goals" progress and digress and twist and keep you wondering what is going on and who is the "villian?"

There are beheadings, women gutted like a fish, shootings, beatings, revolutions, cons, bombs, tanks, ships, fanatics even show up for a minute or two, and a whole lot of killing. The book is straight forward and the authors play fair by not introducing at the last moment new twists or "out of the blue" shanagicans. As a matter of fact the last 150 pages or so are very satifing for the reader and the "twist" is an "oh yeah" moment.

Correia and Kupari are dead on with their guns and tactics. The battle scenes are believable and at times moving. They also do not short change you with their book. This is a 723 page novel with no extra pages or wasted words. These guys have their act together and once they start they know exactly where they are going and how to get there.

I love these guys. Their ending is is half yes! and half Hmmm? Great job!

BLACK OPS 13 Oct. 2011
By Nickolas X. P. Sharps - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Dead Six is a collaborative action-thriller by Monster Hunter writing guru Larry Correia and his Army EOD buddy, Mike Kupari. Larry Correia is currently my favorite author, as well as the leading edge of the urban fantasy market. Any time a Larry Correia book comes out you can sure bet that I will have two copies on order, a signed edition from Uncle Hugo's bookseller for the collection and another from Amazon so that I get to read it the day of release. Dead Six is a first for Larry, in two ways: a first collaboration as well as a first military techno-thriller. The book, while not perfect, was a gripping read that has hooked my interest for later entries in the series.

First things first. Larry and Mike know their stuff. When it comes to shooting these guys know the in's and out's of proper firearm use. I believe both authors shoot competitively. Then throw in Larry's experience as the owner of a gun store, and Mike's army training. So while some of the action sequences may be incredible the action always reads as believable if not entirely realistic. The story itself is broken up into two perspectives. One perspective is told from the ex-mercenary Constantine Michael Valentine, a somewhat jaded young man trying to lead a normal life despite his deadly skill set. The other perspective is that of thief and assassin extraordinaire Lorenzo. Both find themselves neck deep in trouble in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Zubara. For Valentine trouble is the elite black ops counter terrorist group Dead Six. For Lorenzo trouble is infiltrating a terrorist organization for the ultimate heist. Both characters find themselves with opposing objectives and end up clashing, each characters actions having direct or indirect consequences for the other. This awesome concept actually became one of my biggest problems with the novel. Valentine ends up getting random missions that coincidentally interfere with Lorenzo's plans. Once or twice this is acceptable but after several occasions the coincidence becomes a bit glaring.

That set aside this portion of the novel has some exciting special forces sequences as Valentine and fellow Dead Six members eliminate dirty terrorist scum in an attempt to prevent Zubara from collapsing into civil war and chaos. There is a siege toward the middle of the novel that is desperate and heart rending and just awesome. The first half of the novel was a slow burner to me, not slow in the traditional sense because there is a great deal of action but slow in terms of plot development. The betrayals in this novel never really feel that surprising because obviously anyone who signs up for something without any real idea what they'll be doing with the incentive of lots and lots of money should expect the worst and plan for worse than that. Then there is a certain death that strongly affects a certain character but it lacks some impact because of how inorganic the relationship feels. Granted the death still held more impact than I expected but I have to admit it was a beautifully brutally written scene.

The second half of the novel is much better than the first in my opinion. This is when plans finally come to fruition and our two main characters finally converge. The best parts of Dead Six involve the conspiracy theory stuff. The reader is given few answers and there are a great deal of questions that need to be answered. Shadowy organizations, black helicopters, the works. I feel the biggest draw for me with future novels in this series will be the conspiracy angle. I recommend this book to any action junkie. Bits of it read like a videogame (a well thought out videogame where the developers had some experience dealing with firearms). The plot isn't as tight as the typical Correia novel but there is real potential here for future entries. Oh, and co-author Mike Kupari is serving as a bomb disposal specialist in Afghanistan right now so I'd just like to take this opportunity to thank him for his service.

Correia and Kupari need to write another one. 7 Nov. 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has a couple serious issues. First off, it ran out of pages. Second, it's given me a serious jones for a 5" .44 Magnum Smith & Wesson. I don't remember reading a lot of Military Adventure type books where one of the main characters uses a .44 Magnum. Hold on, let me check with Tom Clancy here... ah... Rainbow Six... a Peacemaker in .44-40 for one shot, doesn't count. So yeah, Kupari wins it. Larry has been smashing homeruns with his work for some time now, and now Mike Kupari just nails it out of the park with this one. Two excellent writers, friends, and dedicated Shooters. When Mike gets back from his deployment overseas, I'll need my copy autographed by both writers.

A Double Helix of Awesome 7 Nov. 2011
By Jeff Wilkes - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Every page of this book oozes realism. The authors really know their stuff. Larry has been a competitive shooter and owned a machine gun store. Mike Kupari is, at the time of writing this review, serving in Afghanistan as Air Force EOD tech which automatically makes him a badass. The combat/gun handling scenes are great.

The story switches between two point of view characters with the threads of the story getting pulled tighter and tighter and as the plot tapestry emerges. It ends with a bit of a cliffhanger ending - I hope we get the next book soon! The book is a great thriller with a small dash of alternative history and a pinch supernatural thriller thrown in.

Highly recommended for fans of Brad Thor, Vince Flynn, Matthew Reilly or James Rollins.
