Overview

Sarah Connor and her son, John, know the grim tomorrow that awaits their species if the Cyberdyne Corporation gets their Skynet system on-line. Targeted for annihilation because of their future destinies, the Connors have already survived two separate attempts on their lives by advanced Terminator killing machines. But enough T-800 detritus remains from their last life-and-death struggle to enable Cyberdyne to recover. The nightmare is back on track. And the most fearsome and relentless cyborg weapon of all has been dispatched through time to ensure Skynet's victory: a machine so like its human prey that detection is virtually impossible. Considered a dangerous terrorist by the U.S. government and hiding out in Paraguay, Sarah sees another T-800 similar to the cybernetic killer from whom she once narrowly escaped. But while his form and features will eventually be duplicated on many Terminator units, former counterterrorism operative Dieter von Rossback is very much a man, irresistibly drawn to the puzzling, beautiful, deadly serious Sarah Connor and her brilliant teenage son. And once Sarah reveals her dark history and awakens him to the impending possible extermination of all human life, Dieter is drawn to her revolution as well. But the machine masters of the near future have ensured that they will not be thwarted again. A new breed of enforcer, on designed to effortlessly infiltrate the ranks of the enemy, has been firmly entrenched in the uppermost level of Cyberdyne Corporation. With a vengeance-seeking FBI agent on a tight leash and the inexhaustible resources of Cyberdyne to support the hunt for the Connors and their allies, the 1-950 Infiltrator is relentless, programmed to pursue Skynet's goal until all targets are dead. But unlike its technological predecessors, the Infiltrator understands how humans think and feel...and she truly enjoys the blood and the chase. Exploding out of the long shadows cast by Terminator 2: Judgement Day—the cinematic action masterwork that rocked the world-T2: Infiltrator marks a bold new beginning in the stunning apocalyptic epic that has already become a legend.

The Terminator in this book seems like one of the best logical creations that Skynet has created thus far. Due to this and other elements, the story is well written and should please the vast majority, if not all, Terminator fans (both casual and obsessive) extensively. There has yet to be a killing machine in the Terminator saga (both in the movies and the books) that has dissapointed me. Being more than a casual fan of the Terminator series, I include Serena (the killing machine in the novel) among my favorite killing machines. I highly suggest to fans of the Terminator series to check this book out, although insist to keep an open mind and be patient, since the author inevitably satisfies all readers with a thorough explanation of his intent as the novel progresses. After reading this, I was left with an enhanced desire for more Terminator stories due to the author's ability to deliver a good one.

I picked this out mainly being that this is such a great and frightening concept. The story started a bit slow, but then picked up with insight into the future through the eyes of the machines. Also you learn a little bit about 'Arnold's' character. John takes on a stronger presence to the story as well. I am afraid that the up coming movie will leave me a little disappointed after reading this. But I'm already disappointed in finding out that James Cameron wasn't the director. :(

This is what T3: Judgement Day should have been. I have a knack for figuring out what will happen next in a story and I was totally thrown off with this. I literally couldn't put it down (this applies to every book in this server actually: T2:Rising Storm and T2: Future War) Stirling makes you feel for the characters. He even makes the events completely plausible even if you've seen the movie Judgement Day. The story moves well with very few slow spots. Felt like I was watching a movie. In fact, I forwent watching TV to get thru this series.

I've just finished reading "T2 Infiltrator" and have "Rising Storm" and "Future War" waiting in the wings. The beginning of "Infiltrator" was kind of all over the place, with the different characters and locations, but it all came together in the end.

I'm so glad someone finally decided to write a book about the Terminators. This one was great and fit perfectly into the Terminator story line and world of judgement day. Loved it!!

When I picked up this book, I thought it would be another dumb Terminator rip-off. I was wrong! This book has everything. Action, Adventure, Sex (and lots of it too!), and Supense. It definiately is worthy of being the sequal to Terminator 2. The only thing that Striling has down bad is some of the dialect. Occasionally, some of the dialog from Sarah and John is really corny and stupid. But it only happens a few times. Still, great book.

If you've been holding you're breath for a new Terminator movie then you can exhale because Skynet has unleashed a new Terminator on the world and SHE is more cunning and dangerous than anything you've ever seen before. Until T3 this is your best bet for a Terminator fix.

In the present, Cyberdene built a computer chip to power Skynet, a military computer that eliminates the human error. Problems begin when Skynet turns sentient and attacks its former masters deeming them unfit tolive. Sarah Connor and her son have knowledge of a future where the lad will lead the human resistance against Skynet. Sarah felt that with the death of the Skynet creator and the Cyberdene complex burned to the ground, the future would change. However, the American government declares the Connors as terrorists forcing them to flee to Paraguay.

In 2021 John Connor, the resistance leader, tries to destroy Skynet, which has created a new weapon to end all counter insurgence. Cyborgs are attached to a neural link to send Serena back to the present to insure Skynet is built. The weapon system Serena becomes head of Cyberdene security and actively tries to kill the Connors, once agin having Sarah and John fighting for their lives and that of the future of humanity.

It has been about a decade since T2 hit the screen, yet S.M. Stirling captures the essence of the movie while taking it one step further beyond the icons. The story line is as exciting and fluid as the two movies so that even James Cameron will not want to terminate this series; judging it as worthy.
