Product Description


Praise for JUGGERNAUT: (-)

'[A] squad of mercenaries looking for Saddam's looted gold finds instead a bioweapon that turns healthy humans into psychotic undead monsters. The virus is apparently of extraterrestrial origin, and Baker depicts its gory, fantastical mutagenic effects with relish...and with clipped sentences and whipcrack paragraphs he maintains a relentless pace...JUGGERNAUT is hugely entertaining and as unstoppable as its namesake.' (Financial Times)

'There's no denying the strength of Baker's prose. It's violent and blokey... but also intelligent. The first 100 pages, especially, are rich with harrowing detail about the last days of Saddam's regime... Juggernaut is a rewarding read' (SFX magazine)

'A lock and load adventure of the highest calibre. A tense, absorbing journey and a high speed collision of military action and apocalyptic horror. Blackhawk Down meets Day of the Dead.' (Adam Nevill, author of Apartment 16, The Ritual)

'Great characters, an amazing level of detail, an insane yet wholly believable plot - Juggernaut is an excellent read, full of grotesque images and unexpected revelations.' (David Moody, author of the Autumn and Hater series)

'Juggernaut is populated with believable characters, strong dialogue and impeccably researched detail. These characters live, love, fight and betray their way through to the book's explosive finale... If you like zombies and survival horror then this book is for you. If you like to see just what man is capable of doing when his back is against the wall then this book definitely is the one for you' (Starburst)

'Lean, mean and ferocious. A terrific read.' (Matt Hilton, author of the Joe Hunter series)

'Three Kings meets The Walking Dead, with enough intelligence and panache to make what could've been predictable a great page turner.' (SFFworld.com)

Adam Baker's style is very reminiscent of a combination of Matthew Reilly and James Patterson, and like both those authors, he uses it to tell a punchy story that keeps you engrossed from start to finish. (Sci-fi Bulletin)

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Juggernaut is the tale of a band of mercenaries, who head to the remote Iraqi Valley 403 in order to pick up one of Saddam's bullion caches. When they arrive, it's clear that this place is more than just a remote gold-depot; the ancient citadel riddled with bullet-holes and ankle-deep in brass casings suggests that something is amiss. As the truth unfurls, it becomes clear that this place should have stayed forgotten, but will any of them make it out alive?

Adam Baker writes extremely well and has managed to engineer his second novel as a prequel to his first - the excellent Outpost - whilst remaining canon. His style is succinct, with numerous short-sentences that maintain pace & conveys urgency. He remains fixed in reality for the majority of the book, name-dropping real-world brands of weapons, ammunition and places but with a major twist that is an interesting take on an increasingly threadbare pop-culture vein.

Well written, kept me guessing and I steamed through the 400-odd pages like the eponymous juggernaut as a result - highly recommended for a thrilling pulp-read!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Read "Outpost" and liked it, which is why I bought this book from Amazon. It started well, with lots of details of weapons, explosives, life in Iraq as a mercenary, but then it quickly gets out of its depth. The actual story is so confused and long to develop, you lose interest before you get to the conclusion...that ultimately fizzles out into nothing. There are tremendous inconsistencies, people leave a group to scout for the walking dead, and two sentences later the group is back together and as a reader you say..."...I thought he just left?" People get killed but come back as 'not quite dead yet', although the authority on the subject says, "Your friend will have turned into a zombie in an hour." Fifty page on he's still there still dying, or turning into a zombie. The zombies are boring and at the beginning just crawling skeletons, but later in the book as the author tries to drag out his story they are now strong and a deadly threat, they can climb, fight and struggle. They have been dead in the desert for many months but still have goop in their brain (e.g. for blowing out with shotguns etc.). I cannot recommend this book in any way and that probably means I won't buy any more by this author.

Format: Paperback
Outpost, Adam Baker's debut novel, was an unexpected highlight of last year. Creepy, action-packed, with a cast of memorable characters and a darker than dark story it most definitely earned its spot on my book of the year list. When my copy of Juggernaut arrived, I have to admit that my expectations were extremely high.

Like its predecessor, Juggernaut features a strong female protagonist as its main character. Lucy leads the group of mercenaries from the front and she is just as tough as any of her male counterparts. She is ex Special Forces and her calm under pressure makes for an engrossing character. She doesn't panic, she doesn't flinch, and she just does whatever needs to be done. Like the lead character in Outpost, there is an inherent inner-strength that starts to shine through as the plot unfolds.

The rest of the mercs are a rag tag group. My personal favourite was the South African team member, Voss, who has a habit blowing things up and chewing tobacco. I have to admit I kept picturing Jesse Ventura as Blain in Predator every time he appeared. My only minor disappointment was that Voss never delivered the line "I ain't got time to bleed" in a South African accent.

The northwestern Iraqi desert is an ideal backdrop for this story. While war rages far to the south, the blistering heat, inhospitable terrain and desolate landscape creates a sense of isolation. This isn't just mercenaries against hordes of undead but also against their surroundings. As the action escalates and the odds of surviving reduce by the second there is a palpable air of desperation.

I continue to be impressed by Baker's work and Juggernaut expertly showcases a rising talent in the genre.

Format: Paperback
Set 5 years before Outpost I wondered if this was going to be a prequel and lead us to Outpost but it can be read as a stand-alone book (as there are no common characters unless you count the zombies). A very good one at that, although it gives some clues as to the origins of the outbreak in the first book. Adam Baker does what he does best, takes time to build the scenario before the real action begins. A group of mercenaries go into the Iraqi desert in search of Saddam's gold, they're done being guns for hire and want a big paycheck so they can give up the life and grow old, period. You just wonder when he's going to introduce the zombies and when he does its slowly at first but quickly all hell breaks loose and it's a fight for survival not just from zombies but each other. I enjoyed this, maybe not as much as Outpost but it's probably more to do with me than the book. I read it quickly although felt bogged down at times, again, I think that was me. Military jargon and me don't mix but I'm damn sure I'd pick it up fast if there were zombies coming at me! The female lead is strong, she's head of the group, and kick-ass but being a mercenary she pretty much has to be. I think this is why I preferred the first book. They were civilians, stranded, no real weapons etc whereas these guys are prepared. Okay, prepared for hostiles of the human variety not zombies but still it was more action and military tech than the desperation of Outpost, I cared more for those characters than these ones, don't shoot me for saying that! Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed this, I'm no book reviewer, I don't get paid to read books (I wish) it's just my personal preference, I don't usually go for military action books so I guess that's probably why I found it less enjoyable but I'd still recommend it.Read more ›
