    I received this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book I have read by Adrian Tchaikovsky but it will not be the last. I like stories with modified and cybernetic beings so this book really appealed to me. The book was told from various PO...

    Dogs of War was not the book I was expecting to read - in a good way. I've long been a fan of Adrian Tchaikovsky, his Shadows of the Apt epic fantasy series is great and I really enjoyed his fantasy/adventure novel Spiderlight. In Dogs of War, Tchaikovsky turns his talents towards sci-...

    Adrian Tchaikovskiy is a brilliant author. He goes from fantasy (Empire in Black and Gold) and pure sci-fi (Children of Time) to Flintlock (Guns of the Dawn) and then writes Dogs of War, which is innovative, bewildering, thoughtful and a read I could not put down. Dogs of War tells ...

    I finished this late last night (has been a while since I stayed up so late to finish a book) but had to seriously ponder how to write this review. Only recently I read Adrian Tchaikovsky's Children of Time and it is clear from these two books that the author has a wonderful sense o...

    Read the full review at my site Digital Amrit It is when we talk, rather than shout and bark and snarl, that the humans fear us most. I do not understand that. To talk is human: why are we more frightening when we are human than when we are dog? Introduction Dogs of War is writt...

    Rex is the very definition of the word loyal. He is designed to be that way. When his Master commands, Rex will act. Rex isn?t just a dog, he is a weapon. He has been bred for battle and, along with the rest of his squad, is used to quell insurrection wherever it occurs. I think the ...

    What at first appeared to be a straight tale of totally augmented dogs and other animals refitted with all the glorious technology of war, designed to be true monsters completely obedient to their masters, eventually became a tale of ethics and morality couched in legal-drama, societal...

    A modo de resumen rápido: este es un libro de ciencia ficción hard en un envoltorio suave. Es una lectura asequible, que no trata de impresionar al lector con conceptos herméticos o palabras rimbombantes para que se vea que el autor sabe mucho de ciencia. No, aquí la ciencia es...

    https://lynns-books.com/2017/11/20/do... Dogs of War is one of those books that turned into a very happy surprise for me. I requested a copy of this because I?ve read this author before and liked his style of writing and so whilst the theme worried me a little, because I imagined it...

    If you are attracted to the eye-catching cover and blurb that appears to be offering lots of cool military sci fi action, you won?t be disappointed. There are some thrilling set battles, all written with verve and skill ? I was there and I cared. However, this book is not only offe...

    Dogs of War is one of the only books I have ever finished that I have wanted to go right back to the start and begin reading again, it?s astonishing and by and far the best book I have read this year. Rex?s plight as a bioform soldier is equally fascinating and moving. Part dog...

    "My name is Rex. I am a Good Dog." Rex is definitely a Good Dog. He's also a nearly eight-feet tall bio-engineered cybernetically-enhanced dog soldier with access to heavy weaponry and networked to a whole squad of other artificial bioweapons. (Being introduced to each of them is a ...

    Interesting book. I just read Children of Time and loved it. I found this one, especially the final third, a bit harder to get through. Rex is a dog but he is also a solider. He has been manufactured and enhanced and has developed human like emotions and relationships. He is fiercel...

    Copy provided by Net Gallery. So this was my second Tchaikovsky book I've ever read, and it's really quite different from Shadow's of the Apt. Other than having animal/humanoid type creatures. But I digress. I enjoyed this book quite a lot. The way Rex, the main character, was deve...

    4.5* I enjoyed this a lot. Maybe not quite as much as Children of Time but close. Augmented bio-form dogs, bears, bees, dragons and more, moral dilemmas and war, what's not to like. I am starting to read everything I can get my hands on by Adrian Tchaikovsky and so should you. I love h...

    The novel starts as Military-SF set during a dirty war in Mexico, turns briefly into a court room drama and evolves into a wonderful book about enhanced animals, humans, post-humans, machines, and the increasingly dissolving boundaries between all of it, it is about singularity and hiv...

    4.5 stars Excellent near future SF that delves deep into the ethical questions that arise from augmenting animals and transforming them into a state of personhood. It is just as heartwrenching as you might expect. I was made to be a weapon but I have lived a life. I was born an a...

    Bioform Rex is trying to be a Good Boy, the kind of Good Dog his Master wants him to be. But when he is cut from that hierarchy, he must make his own decisions with the help of his friends in the Multi-form Assault Pack: Bees, Dragon, and Honey. Reminiscent of Flowers for Algernon, Rex...

    4.5* This was nearly a 5 star. It starts with a bang of action. Bio-engineered dogs plus other animals working for an organisation with crwzy weaponary destroy a civilian outpost. You can feel the pull of freedom or questioning his master in Rexs voice through his chapters. Great ac...

    "Surely when they made a dog soldier they did not mean to make a thing that would have thoughts like these. I was not supposed to be able to look back or look forwards. These things are not useful for my purpose, but they are part of what I am." Dogs of War is a thrilling futuristic...

    This is a quick read if not always an easy one - and one which rewards reflection no matter how fast you breeze through it. However, I can?t say I enjoyed it for the most part. With the exception of the astonishing third act (oh, I could have read a whole book along these lines; it w...
