Publisher's Summary

A lonely planet circles a star on the very border of Province 921. Critical resources produced there are claimed by both the Mogwa and the Skay. War between the Galactic giants becomes more likely every day.

James McGill and Legion Varus are deployed to protect Edge World, a planet that rotates at a walking pace. Each day is as long as a year back on Earth. The sun-side of the world is baked with endless sunshine, the night-side is freezing and full of strange creatures. Living in an inhabitable zone on the edge of their world, a shadow-line between night and day, nomadic peoples roam the planet. It is these inhabitants Earth’s forces must protect.

Three fleets converge: the Mogwa, the Skay, and Earth’s growing armada. Peace talks are held, but then McGill opens his big mouth, and things go badly....

Entertaining as always

one small gripe that I'm wondering if BV Larson forgot is that the inhabitants of dust world specifically the investigator was already tinkering with a revival technique. I was so expecting at the end that James would have remembered that and offered that as a solution to his superiors

okay book

Narration is great and always has been. Also, I have enjoyed the story line from the beginning and that is the reason why I have continued listening to each new book. Larson created a world that is fascinating. The problem is that I don't think he develops it well. Another problem is that the characters don't feel realistic and seem to get worse as the story goes on. And why is McGill the only one that can figure things out, is everyone else really that dumb? That aspect makes the story less believable.

The first four books are fairly good and while they have some problems, I felt like things were getting better and better. However, after that, the rest of the books have been just good enough that I haven't felt the need to leave a poor review. Then, books 11-14 have really started to put me off of the series. Larson is riding off the early success that this series had and is pumping out book after book, I would like him instead to work on polishing the story line a bit.

Obviously there are people who seem to like this series no matter what. But, this is just how I feel after sticking with the series all the way through.

Not much to enjoy.

It was generic compared to the previous books. I was essentially bored for the whole thing. McGill was less of a pervert deviant in this one compared to how skin crawling creepy he was in the last one. The book does almost nothing. You could splice any five or ten chapters from any of the previous books at random and get this book. The universe of undying mercenaries expanded in no significant way.

Another great book by B.V. Larson.

This book keeps you entertained from start to finnish. I could never described the book as well as the summary provided on the information page so I won't try. What I can add is the story is good, the characters are what make it great and Mark Boyett brings it to life. I would recommend this book period.

Needs to get back to the roots.

Spoilers ahead.
So in the beginning first few books, you could like James as a good guy, yes he lied, but only when necessary, it wasn't his secondary purpose. And yes we get it, he's a ladies man, but he wasn't a mindless horn ball with no morals. He uses to understand other people's feelings how girls felt when he was a jerk. Now he doesn't care. He prides himself in being a great lier, and looks for chances to prove it. I'd like to see him go back to being a guy who can get any girl but has some loyalty to one. I get the lack of following bad orders that makes the book fun, but why is he suddenly an idiot? He was one year away from graduating college in computer science, he's shown his ability to think, yet everyone says he's a idiot still.. graves went from a office who defended James gave him a loose leash, but now graves goes out of his way to get in the way. Shouldn't he have built some kind of trust by now? Why is Claver still around? What's happening with the civil war? All these world earth has and still barely a fleet to fight for independence. And not that I'm bothered by foul language, but the last 4 books have been dropping the f bomb for just the sake of doing it. But really it's not needed for the story, in the future we're still using the same swear words? I'd like to hear more from natasha's side, kill off the old annoying villains and get some new ones? Get into the war.. let's hear coopers life view? Maybe a charter from Harris once in a while or carlisle, James daughter isn't getting into any tricks and trouble in her life at all? This is a great world, and so many fun characters that could be expanded on.. this series had gone stale, but the story could go on with any other character James daughter could be the best new star of the next series in the same world, maybe she gets drafted into germania or varies?

Worst book in the series

This was the worst book in the series. The stoy was too predictable and seemed rushed. In one scene Winslade dies and saves the day without being revived. In another scene McGill and Armelle were fighting, both wearing impenetrable armor; later in the book McGill confronts Armelle as if Armelle just received the armor. Time to change the POV or end this series.

Another great book for the series

Good old McGill, up to his usual shenanigans. The only issue I have with this book is the same one I have with every book in the series. That it ended. I look forward to the next book eagerly. It's hard to imagine that 14 books in and I still look forward to the next.

Another great addition.

I tried to share the first book in the series and it wasn't there cup of tea. Well this series has been my Jack and Coke and I like it. Nuff said.

Good old McGill

If you are buying the 14th book in this series you should know by now what to expect.
Larson delivers yet again and Mark Boyett’s narration is perfect as always. Looking forward to the next entry is this series.

The story is getting really stale

I really enjoyed the 1st few books in this series. I was really hoping that it was building up to something, but it isn't.
