Publisher's Summary

In a twist of fate that rocks the Galactic Empire, James McGill finds himself negotiating the future of a thousand inhabited worlds. 

An artificial object made of compressed stardust is barreling toward Earth. Is it an invasion ship? A doomsday weapon? Perhaps it’s the final response of Squanto, the Warlord of Rigel who McGill has repeatedly humiliated. Or could it be from the Mogwa, sent to avenge McGill’s assassination of Earth’s Imperial Governor? 

No one knows the truth of its origins, but the object is huge and unstoppable. Whoever hurled this rock at us isn’t answering our calls. Every weapon bounces off, and the people of Earth begin to go mad as they realize their destruction is only hours away. 

Armor World is the 11th book of the Undying Mercenaries series. With over three million copies sold, author B. V. Larson is the king of modern military science fiction.

Slipping

After keeping it fresh and moving in unexpected directions in the past couple books, this one seems to go back to the comfortable harbor of the first few books. Sometimes that can be okay, but here, after so many books, it feels like a step back.

I felt my suspension of disbelief was a little abused, and Mary Sue McGill was in full effect. The relationships in the series have been great at developing naturally and I like that for once the book didn't lean on the usual crutch of villain's exposition to info dump everything.

I also feel there was a missed opportunity to explore a couple truly alien environments.

All in all, a mediocre entry into the series.

Weak

This story has so many holes in it that it is difficult to get through . Not up to the standard I expected from this series. Disappointing.

Another solid entry in the undying mercenaries

Was better than the last book. However I do feel like this is becoming automatic for the author. Would be coll. If he went in a totally unexpected direction. Series is becoming episodic.

More of the same

although enjoyable enough and solid as far as another entry is concerned, I couldn't have been more disappointed by the end. What started out feeling like an attempt to invigorate a slowing story and round out flat characters for 20 chapters quickly devolved into endless sexcapades, Mary Sue levels of plot convince from our favorite big balled plot pushing he-man... and still a level of casual ablism that just feels out of place coming from the insanely talented voice.

Idk if you read these Larson, but if you are, don't feel like I'm calling this novel bad, I have simply read enough of your work to know it can shine past the grime. All I want, is a quiet end to the use of 'retarded' cause it isn't the 90s anymore and you ain't the black eyed peas... and for James to be cheated on or turned down or somehow slapped by karma for his womanizing .. I don't mind a womanizing character, but since where where the women signing up to fight and die the type to sniffle and run away when cheated on? You show you can write realistic women, now have James fuck one.

Cut and Paste

This series has gotten beyond repetitive. Loved it at first. I think I’m done now.

Erm...Not so sure, but it gets a kind of vote

I've loved the entire series. I have all 11 in the series, this is the first one however that kinda doesn't really go anywhere. It isn't clear why the new alien race they've discovered is here, it's a case of one minute earth is chilled, the next minute all hell breaks loose, then there's a dome, then peg-51, then not peg-51, then machines, then swamp, then James and his GF doing the nasty, and end of book. Dare I say this book feels a bit limp compared to the 10 before it. Anyway, I remain committed, I look forward to a much more meaty book 12.

Passable filler waiting for something to happen

Armor World follows the same formula as most of the books that came before but without adding any new elements this time. McGill is getting a bit tired because of his lack of character growth and the new aliens don't add much this time around.
This feels more like book 10.5 setting up book 11 than a fully contained story itself.
Mark Boyett's reading and characterization is as fantastic as ever.

mehhhh

Not really doing it for me anymore. looking for some bigger story elements. it's time to escalate the civil war. Also the final battle was a major let down. the book is more about sex than anything else

A Transitional Book

The story is very interesting, but it seems to lead you here and there without purpose till the final chapters where it pays off.

A good listen for sure.

Best so far!

Deep story and character development. James has never been more complete. Love the story. His rash decisions have never been so backed by experience like this before, it’s a great way of making him seem more brilliant then lucky. After all he has dozens of deaths under his belt. Nice to see the fruits.

same as every other book in the series

this is where I get off of the series. I am sick and tired of the same book. the main character McGill is a womanizer and somehow gets out of trouble that would be a court-martial and death sentence in real world. BV Larson calls every female girl in this book and it's very annoying no. I could see that in the first one or two books in the series, however we are in the 11th book in the series and he still calling females girls. it's predictable as soon as McGill meets a female he says come on girl oar hey girl. when he's getting chewed out by his superiors he always well hold on a minute or come on now and then come up with some excuse that would cause you to be busted down to private if not jailed. I understand this is supposed to be futuristic but the basic lack of understanding of military life is sad. BV Larson also repeats himself many many many times to get his word count up. he'll give us a summary of something that just happened or give us summary of something that happened in another book several times to get that workout up.
