First off, we at FFA want to thank Michael and HarperCollins for allowing us the opportunity to host this cover reveal for The Misfit Soldier. We are huge fans of Michael’s previous novels in his Planetside trilogy.
Below you will find information on the book, the cover (your main reason for being here), as well as links to find the book and Mike.
Back Cover Copy
Ocean’s Eleven meets Old Man’s War in this funny, action-filled, stand-alone sci-fi adventure from the author of Planetside, in which a small team of misfit soldiers takes on a behind-enemy-lines mission that could change the entire war
Sergeant Gastovsky—Gas to everyone but his superior officers—never wanted to be a soldier. Far from it. But when a con goes wrong and he needs a place to lay low for a while, he finds himself wearing the power armor of the augmented infantry.
After three years on a six-year contract, Gas has found his groove running low-level cons and various illegal activities that make him good money on the side. He’s the guy who can get you what you need. But he’s always had his eye out for a big score—the one that might set him up for life after the military.
When one of his soldiers is left behind after a seemingly pointless battle, Gas sees his chance. He assembles a team of misfit soldiers that would push the term “ragtag” to its limits for a big con that leads them on an unauthorized behind-the-lines raid, pitting him not only against enemy soldiers but against the top brass of his own organization.
If he pulls this off, not only will he save his squadmate, he might just become the legend he’s always considered himself. He might also expose a secret that alters how the entire galaxy views the endless war. But for any of that to happen, first he has to survive the mission.
And charm rarely stops bullets…
So, with the above being said, we should expect the below formula.
If I can be honest for a second, THIS SOUNDS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY!
