HE'D DO ANYTHING TO GET A STORY. When journalist Lex Falk gets himself chipped into the brain of a combat soldier, he thinks he has the ultimate scoop - a report from the forbidden front line of a distant planetary war, live to the living rooms of Earth. When the soldier is killed, however, Lex has to take over the body and somehow get himself back to safety once more... broadcasting all the way.

Heart-stopping combat science fiction from the million-selling Warhammer 40,000 author.

...compelling and engaging characters, fiercely visceral combat scenes, and profound, thought-provoking themes set within a world that feels so real I could almost reach out and touch it.

Quick, intense, and most of all, a smart entry in the military science fiction genre.

...far more than just the swaggering, flag-waving machismo of most military fiction. Action scenes are par for the course in this subgenre, but Abnett's are genuinely intense and nerve-wracking, because I cared who was doing the shooting, and who was being shot at.

...I like Embedded quite a lot. Every generation has their own sort of war, and Abnett's clearly got the sense of this one.
