    I've used the term roller-coaster twice in this review to describe the experience of reading this series, simply because there's no other way I can think to describe it. Unknown Soldier pulls you from one unnerving scene to the next, to the point where your head is spinning and you're more than a little queasy.

    We also learn, through fragmented imagery -- flashbacks or hallucinations? -- that this Unknown Soldier might share more in common with previous incarnations than just the name and the bandaged look. There's something deeper going on here, and Moses begins to sense it, even if he can't connect the dots just yet. But such a nested structure, with a larger mystery wrapped around the more immediate personal conflict, bodes well for the future of this series. Dysart has a grand story to tell, and I hope that this series lasts long enough for him to tell it. Read Full Review
