Mal wakes up to find he's a cyborg and has no memory of the past 11 months of his life. In his quest to find out the truth he has to battle many government agents and man-made adversaries. It's a rollercoaster ride from page 1 with scene after scene of action packed adventure.
It's a must read for sci-fi fans. The author has a gift for describing the action so that the reader is fully engaged throughout. Even though much of the book contains violent encounters, there's no gratuitous violence, just what was required for realism.
I liked the ending and thought it was very fitting.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

-some of the action flies too fast or doesnt make sense
-characters dont all fill out enough
-some scenes seem like filler or bridges between scenes
now, the good...
I LOVED IT ALL, ...I even loved the way the above points i mentioned blended together.Somehow, the author leaves you at the end of the book thinking all those negatives were his master plan all along...and ya know what?... MAYBE SO.
this isnt the most polished novel ever in my opinion, but it sure was a fun ride that makes you forget all of the above negatives.
ok, so it wasnt perfect...mentioned that already but it was fast, it was smooth flowing and it was a page turner.It was worth every penny and the science fiction part of the book was believable...well, except for a walking trash pile...hahaha
all in all i would pay more for this book than what its selling for and i would definitely give it a great review...woops, i hope i just did.
I realized, upon reading the end notes, that the idea started out as a pitch to a comic guy and that does nothing to detract from my enjoyment of the book but it does clarify the pacing to me. It's fast... really fast... Dan Brown with liquid metal armed protagonist fighting government agents in black helicopters fast. I'm not giving anything away that isn't on the cover here.
It was a fast read and a fun read. There wasn't an awful lot of character development but that's for later. This is the first book. This one... you know what it felt like? It felt like a buddy cop movie. It had that feel to it. Zuz, the side-kick and the poor car. It really felt like a buddy cop movie with the funny bits where they were and how they were delivered.
For the record, there were two women in the book. They did not talk about their boyfriends with each other and they both were bad axes (you know what I mean... I'm keeping it clean for the kiddies.)
If you like comic book action with buddy cop humor this is the book for you. Me? I really liked it. I enjoyed the heck out of it.
Trivia: Not really trivia, just name fun. I like when authors do something smart with the names. Cestus for example, is a real word. It's not Festus messed up. It's a type of glove worn in battle. Very much like what we see here on the cover. One of the women in the book has a name that has a meaning as well, an ancient greek myth reference in the name. It's clever and smart and cool when it's done well. In this book it's done well. Not overdone and not everywhere, but enough to keep the mind thinking in amongst all the fights and explosions.
Malcolm Weir is an Army Ranger who was involved in a ground to air strike that he should never have survived, and had it not been for Project: Hardwired, he wouldn't have. He awakens mid-surgery, only to discover it's a year later and his body has been taken over by scientists and computer programs. His abject horror is so palpable that you can't help but be drawn to empathize with this tragic situation.
He is joined by best friend David Zuzelo after fighting his way out of the building he woke up in, and he and Zuz begin to work through theories of what he is and what happened to him. Action-packed drama with a star who is relatable to the everyday person, male and female alike.
I highly recommend this novel, and I can't wait for the next in the series to be released. It's on my To-Buy list, for sure!!
