They call her crazy. They call her a badass. They call her a lot of names. Angel of Death. Mad Wargarita. Full Metal Bitch. Few know the truth.
And more. And less. Even fewer know the reason why. Keiji Kiriya is about to join their ranks. This is the story of two ordinary people forced to do the extraordinary; save the human race from an alien invasion. We meet Keiji, a green Japanese recruit, "She could walk into any hell and come back unscathed. We meet Keiji, a green Japanese recruit, on the day of his first battle. Nothing goes right. The members of his unit are dropping like flies.
The crazy chick with the broadsword, her armor painted red to draw the enemy straight to her. A war junkie always chasing the action, no matter where it led her. Word had it she and her Special Forces squad from the U. Army had chalked up half of all confirmed Mimic kills ever. Maybe anyone who could see that much fighting and live to tell about it really was the Angel of Death. I think my favorite thing about her is how understated she is.
And then she puts on an armor suit, heaves a broadsword, and rains down death and destruction from the mother fucking sky. Keiji is not a badass. At least not in the beginning of this book. But then he kills a Mimic not quite like the others and inherits their strange ability to alter time, resetting it every time he dies.
Then he dies. Then he dies some more. Then he dies a lot more. And then he begins to change. This book is incredible. So much better than the movie view spoiler [Duh, right? Less romance-heavy and more character study meets epic action sequences. And the writing, GAH, the writing. You feel every emotion. You hear every bomb drop: "I grip the trigger with stiff fingers: my arms shake as I send a rain of scorching steel down onto the enemy.
The rifle kicks as I fire it. A beat steadier than my heart.
