Description

The Galactics arrived with their Battle Fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined a vast empire that spanned the Milky Way.

When the Earth is invaded by a rival empire, James McGill's legion must defend the Home World. The top brass has complex plans, but none of that matters much to McGill, who chooses his own unique path. Traveling to star systems no human has ever visited, he searches for a technological edge to beat the enemy before it's too late. Along the way he unleashes new terrors, triggering the biggest battles in human history.

Home World is the sixth book of the Undying Mercenaries Series, a novel of military science fiction by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

Obstinate to the Core

In “Home world,” James McGill is still as obstinate and stubbornly determined to do what he thinks is right no matter what anyone else has to say; and he now has rank, as in Adjunct. He seems to have become somewhat more mature and diplomatic given his new positon, but deep down he’s still the same old James McGill, and that’s what makes this series fun.
As the title suggests, the setting of the six book in the “Undying Mercenaries,” series is earth. It is under attack by the “Squids,” and their superior force seems destined to destroy the planet; but for better or worse earth has James McGill. To try and save mankind James will travel to the core of the Galactics universe to retrieve some high tech weaponry that could turn the tide of the war and piss off a lot of aliens.
His usual gang of mercenaries is present and accounted for along with Imperator Turov, and Claver of course. In my opinion this is the best of the series and listening to Mark Boyett play James McGill is the only way to enjoy it.

Must be rated by bots

Yea I have the same complaint that many other people have. Good over all universe as far as concept with the Empire and how it works. But the stupid schemes that should not work hook up with lots of women who are always willing even knowing he is a pos "that part is believable lots of women seem to like guys that just use them as meat" save the day through blind luck rinse repeat is getting old. Let at least one of the main bad guys die and replace them with something new to progress the story or at least let them get kicked to the side. I have to agree with what someone else said these reviews just vaguely saying this book is awesome 5 star must be bots. I'm still going to get the rest of the books and just hope the author gets some new inspiration like he had when he started the series. And and continue to ignore the lame sexual crap.

I'm done

I enjoyed this series until now. The writing was never amazing, but it was good enough, but the sixth book was very disappointing. I'm done, I don't care what happens anymore, and obviously neither does the author. This is some of the laziest writing I've come across.

I suspect the rating of this book series has been gamed heavily by bots, as I can see no way any real person would give this 5 stars.

Repetitive schemes aren't surprises after 5 books

I liked this series until the repetitive nonsense of Turov&Claverjustneverends and they never have consequencesfortheiractions.

Benedict Arnold would be proud...

*Spoilers*

So Turov gets caught trying to sell out Earth to the Squids and pays for it with her life, permanently. Great, now we can finally move on.... wait hold up! Turov gets revived??!! Then in a crazy turn of events Graves must choose the next leader of all of Earth's Forces!! Who will Graves choose? Perhaps a competent commander from another battle hardened legion? Wait... why is Graves, a centurion, making this call at all? Why is he asking James his opinion on who he should choose? WHY ARE THEY PICKING TUROV WHO IS A KNOWN TRAITOR AND HAS TRIED TO SELL OUT EARTH WITH CLAIVER MULTIPLE TIMES BY NOW?!?!?!?!?

That is literally akin to giving command of America's forces during the Revolutionary War to Benedict Arnold if George Washington had been killed. It makes no sense.

Well I'm done. Books 1-3 were good, with enough interesting things happening and interesting characters to keep it going strong. Book 4 was alright. Book 5, I felt missed a huge opportunity to show case how a legion would fight without a revival machine. Book 6? Nope. End of the series for me, sad, but it has to be done. This decision is one of the worst decisions ever written and it killed the series for me. (Apparently everyone has lost their minds, perhaps it's a side effect from the constant revives?)

OH come on!!

Spoiler alert: James McGill is an idiot. Multiple opportunities to come clean about the galactic key and his past truth stretching blindly ignored. Allowing Graves to shoot himself and Drusus to be arrested to protect and return control of everything (and the Galactic key) back over to Turov the biggest traitor to the human race makes his dumb ass just as guilty as her and Claver. I had to quite listening! I just couldn't take it any more. I stopped right there. Now I'm listening to Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi. I highly recommend it. I've read multiple series by B.V. Larson and have liked most of them and will continue but this was just too much.

As always Mark Boyett was awesome!!

Storyline has gotten a bit too thin

At this point in the series, the storyline feels very forced, and often contrived. Many of the characters have repeated the same lines so many times, they feel like catch phrases. Don't think I'll be able to bring myself to listen to the next book.

Repeat, repeat, repeat will anything new happen.

It gets to a point where you start hating all the characters. Just shorten the books if you can't think of any new plots.....

Stupid story which is simply a letdown

Stupid story where the hero keeps letting the biggest schemer and traitors alive for his own childish schemes and then also act morally high all along

Mark Boyett is the voice of B V Larson's books

Mark Boyett is the voice and soul of the books

But B V Larson has a major shortcoming, he refuses to take risks.

Each of first 4 books Great. They are campy and reminds me of old school sci fi. But he won't allow a main character to stay "permmed" So each book is Mcgill does something against orders, military action sequence, Carlos and/or Keevee dies, he gets blamed for the ensuring disaster, he BSes his way out, he gets laid and somehow saves the day.

Rinse and repeat. For newer listeners, I wouldn't go past Death World. The series really hits it stride. No main characters die, he and Tourov get in some sort of bitch fight. When this book said Tourov was permmed I was happy. It would allow the plot to advance. But nope. she makes a return. At this point, the plot sounds like a broken record.
