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.

Repetitive themes. Predictable. Unimaginative.

For many hours into the story I was comfortable just letting my mind wander. Truly and underwhelming story. It’s high time this series came to an end if the author is just going to use repetitive themes with a different plot device. No mating ritual with aliens for our illustrious protagonist this time, so that’s a blessing.

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.

Terrible

So many examples of ridiculous plot and character turns. I’ll only mention the one that pisses me off the most: Turov. She is a character that at this point in the story makes no sense. She is the highest ranking member of Varus, despite being a confirmed traitor to earth on multiple occasions. If that wasnt bad enough, she is completely and utterly incompetent (even the idiotic main character admits this) and yet somehow she keeps being put in high positions of power. The last scene where the idiot main character defends her from arrest is just too much to bear. By the way every female character except for one exist only for the main character to have sex with (or to get jealous of other female characters he is currently having sex with).

Getting tedious

I keep hoping that the main character grows a little bit and maybe there's an underlying story developing in the background. But that doesn't seem to be the case. Each book has him trying to sleep with every woman he meets. He constantly lies, disobeys orders, and somehow saves the day at the end with no real punishment. I enjoy sci-fi so I'm willing to believe the impossible, but not the improbable. There are a few characters, McGill included that somehow remain in positions of authority even after they've done almost treasonous things as well as a general ineptitude as commanders. In the military and civilian life people like that are generally pushed out not promoted.

same plot....again.

it's the same book, yet again. I'm done with this series. Main character never grows, is unlikeable and boring. No real antagonists.
