The stunning military science fiction novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Prospero Burns .
The colony planet of Eighty-Six looks as dull as all its fellow new worlds to veteran journalist Lex Falk, but when a local squabble starts to turn violent, and the media start getting the runaround from the military high command, his interest is seriously piqued.
Forbidden from approaching the battlezone, he gets himself chipped inside the head of a combat veteran - and uncovers the story of a lifetime. When the soldier is killed, however, Falk must use all his resourcefulness to get back home again... and blow the lid off the whole damn thing.

Praise and Reviews:
"Embedded is a nail-biting, seat-of-the-pants ride - which also has serious things to say about war and the news media."- Eric Brown, The Guardian
"Rips across the page like a blast wave from a barrage of low orbit launched kinetic impactors. Abnett makes hard bitten, high concept mil-fic fun again."- John Birmingham
"The prose is tight and incredibly well written, it plays very much like an intelligent war movie, and one that would have been likely to have won many awards. There is a real maturity to the narrative, you can really imagine yourself as part of a unit of highly trained soldiers on the front line a billion miles away from home. The characterisation is spot on, with enough information to draw yourself to the protagonists while not giving away too much to slow the story. I really loved the idea of putting an untrained journalist right inside the body of a ground pounder and then throwing every conceivable situation at him, it works very well indeed and the atmosphere is incredible. A mention must also be made of the ending, a very unexpected twist right at the end leaves you almost breathless and it's fantastically underplayed. At its heart Embedded is a gritty military science fiction story, it's also one of the best books you will read this year. 5*****"- SFBook.com
