In the year 2145...after disobeying a direct order, former special ops Marine Lieutenant John Kane found himself stripped of his rank and reassigned to the "U.S. Space Marines" -- the private army of the Union Aerospace Corporation. Now little more than a glorified security guard, Kane reluctantly accepts his fate on Mars City, the environmental community/lab center on the legendary red planet.
But Kane could never have imagined the unspeakable horrors that awaited him there -- nightmarish aberrations of nature and unholy unions of flesh and machine awakened by unsuspecting researchers attempting to divulge the arcane secrets of this planet's extraordinary past. As the terrifying violence grows, Kane and a ragtag band of survivors must call on all of their skills if they can ever hope to make it out of Mars City alive -- even as those at the highest echelons of power continue their own covert and deadly machinations in a relentless bid to seize the ultimate source of power....
Doom 3 are one of my favorite books
Pretty good read but lacking...
The book was a good read and I did not want to put it down, but when I got to the end, I was left thinking: "that's it?" I just felt that it was pretty uneventful overall. The defeat of the final challenge was brief and predictable. The entire book had many words but little to say. Perhaps if this was combined with the other Doom 3 volume(s) (I'm not sure how many total but iBooks has only one other) it would be satisfying overall, but I personally felt like this was an appetizer rather than main course. Btw I found this by a search for "Doom" since I was/am a fan of the games and read "knee deep in the dead" many years ago. If you are going to read this, I recommend reading the other doom3 novel first as it appears to be the prequel. Again I am not saying this was bad by any means; I just expected and wanted more out of it.
