Description

James McGill is sent to the Core Worlds!  

In an unprecedented first, Earth sends a message to Mogwa Prime. Unfortunately, the messenger is not met with enthusiasm. Misunderstandings soon threaten all of Humanity. Forced to prove Earth can serve the Empire better than any rival, McGill does his best.   

Eager to prove our worth to the Galactics, the frontier war between Rigel and Earth is expanded to Storm World. Circled by six moons, the planet is ravaged by wild storms and tides. Battles are fought in raging hurricanes, and death stalks the soldiers on both sides.   

McGill grimly fights and dies in the mud until the job gets done, but will it be enough to satisfy the angry Mogwa?

Another fun episode in the series

Onto book 10 and the series does not disappoint. I feel like the whole series is maturing nicely, McGill is a great protagonist, the characters around him are maturing in their development and a sufficient amount of new characters are being introduced. The new twist on Claver is very unexpected and you can see that developing this story line opens the door for many new possibilities in further books.

This is a series that I just snap up the books as soon as I see them and I've enjoyed them all. Keep em coming B.V.

A bit more of the same... but still fantastic

As repetitive as these books are, Mr. Larson still finds a way to keep me hooked. This book in particular *does* throw a few new interesting ingredients into the mix - a naked McGill writing a book for a Mogwa isn't something you see everyday. Still, McGill actually seems to be showing a bit of maturity and growth, as unlikely as that sounds.

The series has a few ways it can go from here, and I personally hope to see some forward movement.

Mark Boyett is exceptional as always.

THIS SERIES NEEDS TO MOVE FORWARD!

B. V. Larson is an awesome Sci-Fi writer and I love this series. But the story has not moved forward and is becoming stale and repeating itself! Please tell us more about the Galatics and the civil war that's going on! What's the big deal with it? James McGill seems to be fighting for nothing at this point in the series. He cracks me up but his story is still the same.
It's time to add some twists and turns!

better with every book

This series has been great from the start, but it gets better with every book. After 180 or so scifi books on audible, I can say without a doubt this series is my absolute favorite. I would preorder the next 10 books right now if I could.

Gotta Love Ok’ James McGill!

Every time a new one comes out I snap it up immediately and put it at the top of my listening queue. Mark Boyett is masterful in his performance. He makes you love the ones you are supposed to and revile those that deserve it, above and beyond Lawson’s excellent writing. He is right up there with RC Bray and Ray Porter as the masters of bringing the stories to life for those of us who spend long hours on the road.

I can hardy await the next installment on this epic and ever developing adventure following our favorite scoundrel, McGill!

The Entertainment Goes On

B. V. Larson continues to uncover and explore fresh new veins of gold storytelling in Storm World. McGill and his antics continue to threaten and, somehow, save humankind from destruction; all the while treating us to hilarious situations along with informing us of new insights into the aged but still very dangerous Galactic Empire.

We've been here before...

There's always too much of a good thing, and Undying Mercenaries as a series name seems more apropos that BV Larson probably ever intended. The first book was novel, life was cheap, and bullets were expensive in the universe of a legionnaire, a technological einherjar where soldiers are forever young via valkyries of science. Or at least that seemed to be the promise of series in the first book or two.

Here we are on book 10, and everything and nothing has changed. Sure there's been a larger story unfolding at a glacial speed of a galactic empire in turmoil, but little else changes. How many times can legion Veras be deployed to a hard-scrap mission, defy the odds and still be considered beneath the others? How many times can James McGill defy his superiors, often with little forethought? How many times can he reference his large stature and shrug away from his intellect? How often can those around him even begin to trust him? How many times can James McGill be illicitly grown? How many times McGill kill Claver, or others for that matter? How many women will fall his dopey, "Now C'mon girl, now wait for a second" spell or metaphors about folksy metaphors about rural Georgia life? How many times will McGill oggle any woman he lays eyes on. How many times...

There's only so many series tropes that it's not worth listing. Even Larson seems bored with some of the details of the series, not even bothering to describe for the hundredth time the gross-gorey mess of being birthed by the bio-machines. Other side characters like Carlos and Kivi are sidelined to near nonexistence. Even the insultingly stupid harem fantasy of intelligent, fiercely strong, independent women who all end up in McGill's bedroom seems to be background noise this go-around. Larson almost entirely forgets McGill's daughter despite being the launching point for this book's plot. If he doesn't care, why should we? Sure, we have an ever-expanding cast of aliens like the new found allies in "squids", Blood worlders but they're mostly window dressing. All alien species are ridiculously simplified at least for the last two books, although there haven't been any off-world alien woman for McGill to seduce for two books. That sadly passes for a compliment. Also, At Turov and McGill's hedonistic self-serving relationship seems to be appropriate albeit also reduced now to the same hot-cold cycle. I gave this series 10 books and I'm pretty sure I'm out. It started out fun, if not a little silly but little has changed after the 3rd book.

I'd of given up if Mark Boyett hadn't narrated these, he's fantastic, bringing life to an otherwise sterile book series. I'd of argued in the first two or three books that they smartly stupid. I'm pretty sure now I can remove the adjective from the last sentence.

I think I'm done

Series started out strong and with a great concept for a story. I love B. V. Larson's imagination, but after 10 books, things get stale. McGill does so many stupid things that it's becoming difficult to listen to anymore. Story line is weak. Sorry B.V., let's wrap this series up and put it to bed. Maybe re-energize Star Force or something.

James McGill!

I listen to a lot of audio books, many good, some great, a few meh. It's actually embarrassing how much I listen. It's to the point where I wish Audible would remove the stats on lifetime listening totals. Anyway...No matter what though, I have come to love the adventures of James McGill above all others. When a new book becomes available for pre-order I am thrilled. I would spend my last $10 on a new "World" story. James McGill - the REAL Most Interesting Man in the World (still pretend of course).

I love Mcgill

Mark Boyett is the best narrator I've listened to by far. The undying mercenary series is the best BV Larson writes. Hope they keep coming.
