Overview

All-out war engulfs a distant quadrant of space. Hardcore warriors clash in high tech Battlenaut armor, pitting the ultimate fighting machines in epic struggles on a planetary scale. In the heart of this raging hell, the sleep-deprived Redeye squad fights harder than anyone. Pumped up on drugs, wired to the max, the Redeyes tear through enemy forces like berserk Vikings. But fatigue takes a toll, as the Redeyes start to see things that don't exist. And something that might exist after all--a terrible harbinger of doom, a legendary herald of the end of all things. Does the Black Battlenaut truly tower over the blood-soaked war zone? Is it a nightmare brought on by exhaustion, or an omen of infinite devastation? Either way, the Redeyes set out to stop it by any means necessary...even if their private war requires the ultimate sacrifice and more. Don't miss this exciting tale by award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of hard-hitting science fiction that really packs a punch.

Also now available for the Nook: RESIST THE RED BATTLENAUT, the sequel to BEWARE THE BLACK BATTLENAUT...a full-length novel featuring over 100,000 words of blistering military SF action.

    did not deliver

    Basically a stream of consciousness book that did not do anything for me. Lots of emotion and people getting injected with stimulants and lasers going off to no particular effect. If the story involved some character development, discernible plot or, at some point, stimulation to the Reader, it would have had some redemption. It is not easy to write a good story and draw people in and be entertaining and enjoyable. This one proves it..

    Gritty and grand as hell...

    I've always had a soft spot for combat stories that jump right into the action, and get you involved at the platoon or squad level. Jeschonek's short story doesn't disappoint, and drives straight for the solar plexus with a three-person team that's fighting for their lives on an alien planet, and have been so for quite some time. And then one of the team sees a dreaded harbinger of doom at the edge of the combat zone. Pumped to the gills on stims, the rest of the squad isn't sure that they've seen it. But they're starting to see lots of *other* things pop up on their screens...not all of which are necessarily real.
