Rade Galaal enrolls in the hardest military training known to man to become a member of the MOTHs, the most elite spec-ops unit in the galaxy. MOTHs are tacticians, corpsmen, snipers, astronauts and commandos rolled into one. They also happen to pilot the atomic-powered ATLAS mechs, specialized military hardware that brings new meaning to the phrase “one-man-army.”
When Special Warfare Command orders MOTH Team Seven on a covert operation beyond the furthest reaches of explored space, Rade realizes he’s signed up for more than he bargained for…

Here's What Reviewers Are Saying
“I snapped it up and couldn’t put it down. What a great book. It really reminded me of Old Man’s War at first, but after the physical exertion that Rade and his companions went through at Boot Camp and MOTH training, it was clear that Hooke wasn’t going to just sell books based on his name and an awesome cover (which it is) — the intricate plot will do that for him.”
“This is an astounding book. The science is captivating, the characterizations are thrilling, and it is one of the very few books I will read again.”
“ATLAS is a great, great read. It’s the kind of book that pulls you in and keeps you up all night reading to the end. Can’t wait until the next installment”
Realy enjoyed the book, well written and very plausible, did get a bit farfetched at the end, but who knows what is out there. Liked the final twist in the tail.
Just finished ATLAS, really enjoyed it and can’t wait for the next one in the series! Very good read.
Just finished Atlas. Couldn’t put it down. Very good read. Waiting for the second book in the series.
Couldn’t stop reading this one. I liked the ending, although it really left me wanting more! Hope to see a sequel to this one.
Can only quote my predecessors: Simply impossible to put it down before reaching the end. MORE, please!
Everybody who liked this one should have a look at Jay Allan’s “Crimson Worlds” saga, fully packed with splendid armored infantry action and high drama.
Did I already say that I just can’t wait for the sequel to “Atlas”?
As I said in my Amazon review, really awesome stuff. I had to read it in 2 steps because I just didn’t have time to do it in one! Great book, don’t know if I can make it ’til October!
Listened to ATLAS and was immersed into a believable world where mankind is still mankind, with all of its flaws and idiosyncrasies. Isaac Hooke seems to actually know some warfighters, based upon the level of depth he goes into with their feelings, fears, and determination.
A well written storyline, and a great inspiration to burgeoning sci-fi writers.
