About the book:

 Dogs of War: Robots are no longer science fiction. Autonomous, programmed to react like animals: fast, relentless, deadly. From microscopic nanobots to massive self-guided aircraft. This technology is here, it’s assessable, and it’s dangerous. What’s even scarier is that almost anyone can get their hands on it.

A freelance terrorist uses the latest generation of robot dogs to deliver WMDs into cities across America. Ultra-realistic robots in the sex industry are used to spread designer plagues. Sophisticated military weapons systems turn on their human masters. A technological apocalypse is coming and we may be too late to stop it.

Joe Ledger and a newly rebuilt Department of Military Sciences square off against this new and terrible threat. Dogs of War pits Joe against a merciless new enemy and an army of techno-terrorists in a race to prevent a global destruction.

Let loose the Dogs of War.

My Thoughts:

I love Jonathan Maberry and was thrilled when I received a Netgalley review copy of it. Sadly there was something seriously wrong with the review copy so there were tons of blank pages and at first I thought the entire book was empty so it took longer than I expected to get into it. However, glitches aside I really enjoyed this book.

As expected of a Joe Ledger book it’s a roller coaster ride of one exciting scene after another. His team is still dealing with the fallout of their past mistakes and regaining everyone’s trust that they can handle the big problems. But I’m glad to see most of the team members back in the saddle. The story line was great and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Excellent addition to the series!
