Publisher's Summary

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. Today, Battle Fleet 921 is returning to Earth. It hasn't been seen by human eyes since our blissful day of Annexation. But what should be a joyful occasion, a chance to grovel at the feet of superior lifeforms, is rapidly becoming a nightmare. Over the last century, humanity has engaged in many activities that our overlords find...questionable. A panic ensues, and Legion Varus is deployed to erase certain "mistakes" our government has made. Projects must be purged to stop Imperial military action. Among the thousands marching to war is one man no politician has ever enjoyed dealing with. One man who's destined to follow his own unique path through galactic law, morality and the stars themselves.

James McGill is about to make history.

Rogue World is the seventh book of Undying Mercenaries series, a novel of military science fiction by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

    "Really enjoyed"

    While this was a slow start , setting up a family start to the book .. once it started going it was very enjoyable. We come across the usual characters but not over crowding a new story. The end came too quickly and I wanted more ... and there were more than a few twists left yet to be explored

    "Filler World?"

    Rogue World was a book I'd been waiting for a long time. I really like the Undying Mercenaries series of books and have, thus far, found them to be probably the best long running saga just ahead marginally of Larson's other excellent 12 odd Star Force series However, Rogue World, although a decent story, isn't quite up to the level of other stories in this excellent series. Perhaps, as one reviewer said, it's somewhat formulaic format means that it's more or less the same fare with a slightly different setting. Having said that, I did enjoy the book so I wouldn't say it's a "bad" book, not at all. It's just I believe Larson could have done better and I get the impression that this story was a bit of a filler before he gets back into the meat and potatoes of what makes the Undying Mercenaries an entertaining and gritty set of stories.

    The main problem I see with Larson is of his own making which is that he is such a prolific writer that he has his finger in several pies as it were. This inevitably means that he is not able to fully devote his time and focus on penning a complete series and instead dives in and out of multiple series he has while seemingly also starting new ones!. Although I don't know for sure, it does appear to me that what made the Star Force series so consistent was perhaps that he concentrated on that series most of the time, if not all of it. In the course of the Undying Mercenaries series, Larson has also written two books in his new "Rebel Fleet!" collection and has recently released book 1 of the Galactic Liberation series. In addition, I believe Larson also branched into a 3 book "Lost Colonies" series as well. All this jumping about leads to delays in currently running saga's being delivered and in the case of Rogue World, also below par and with errors in both plot and continuity. I think I've seen Larson do this before and it does tend to make one think what ever happened to proof reading by the publishing house. Such errors, I can only surmise, must be largely due to not focusing on one book at a time or rushing to finish one book while another is being started.

    There are two errors I spotted, both relatively subtle I suppose but nevertheless unacceptable at this level of writing. The first silly error occurs near the start of the story at chapter 2, I think, where the protagonist, James McGill, is having a heated conversation over the phone about having his ill mother treated. he is told that nothing can happen until next year as it is "early July" now. Hours later as he heads into town he remarks upon the fire flies all around as it is "early June". The second error is a plot one I noticed that saw McGill's love interest accompanying the boarding party with McGill to assault a Nerb ship. No escape from this ship is possible in the interim and we face various battles as the crew party penetrates further into the Nerb ship helped by McGill's love interest in the early stages. Then, we hear nothing of this character as McGill and co. fight for their lives until, all of a sudden, she is somehow back aboard the Nostrum, McGill's own ship? This sort of mistake is far less forgivable than the first as it undermines plot continuity. I'd go so far as to say that this is a clumsy error likely caused by poor editing or that Larson was rushing this out while he was tied up on other projects. So, as I'm looking for work, if anyone wants to offer me a proof "listening" role then I'm available :)

    All that aside, what we're left with is the potential platform from which the series can return to its visceral roots. If so, then I look forward to the next instalment.

    Rogue World is not the best in the series but it isn't a disaster either. Worth a read and especially so if you've been with the series to date as I have.

    "One of the best yet"

    You always worry on long running series whether the author is going to run out of ideas and things are going to get stale.

    With rogue planet Larson kicks the series up another gear and makes you look forward to the next "event"

    Everything that you liked in previous books is here and in spades. Stop reading this review and start listening.

    "Saved by his weakest for a pretty face..."

    Once again James is in the middle of it all and don’t you know it there is a exotic alien too. Outstanding reading and this one like all the other previous books in this series is a must. I could not stop. The new discovery of New tech, the McGill humour and overall story line kept its hold on me till the last chapter. I hope there is next one as I can’t wait to find out what kind of trouble James can get him self out of.

    Story
    "I kept thinking about his Toes"

    I thought this was a good James McGill story; another promotion which brought its own set of interesting interactions with some of the characters familiar in this series, another world for McGill to do his thing and take matters into his own hands as he usually does, and of course more Galactics to piss-off, but less than halfway through the story all I could think about was his toes. McGill goes through a bad re-growth and his toes didn’t form properly, the description is very graphic, but for reasons that are made clear in the story it’s not corrected. I kept wondering if he was going to die again and just be re-cycled but, until the very end, never happened. I know this must seem a trivial point and the characters don’t ever appear bothered by such things but toes do help in balance and walking; It was just something I kept thinking about while he went through his typical heroics.. In the end, bad toes and all, McGill saves the day as usual.
    About the narrator; I would not listen to this series if Mark Boyett ever stopped being the voice, he is James McGill.

    "James McGill & BV do it again"

    I admit I was beginning to wonder if the author can keep this up and the short version is "Yes, he can!" No spoilers here but if you like the series this could be one of the best.

    That said, like all series jumping in at this book may make it hard to appreciate all the players as they show up with limited introduction (Claver)

    Do yourself a favor and start at the beginning-it is worth the ride.

    Mark Boyett hits the narration of another of Larson's Undying Mercenaries series - out of the park. McGill once again saves Earth. Loved it.

    "still at it"
    Any additional comments?

    Our Hero is still at it doing what he does best; scheming, screwing, sneaking and general mayhem. The story continues, though it sets up for a great conflict than most of the previous novels. a bit of foreshadowing perhaps?

    "more of the same McGill."

    I enjoy getting more of what I like. this hot the spot during a road trip. James McGill taking charge and getting killed,,,wash, rinse, repeat.
    it's a nice rich world with the profound philosophical aspects of death without consequence. I enjoy it.

    can't wait for the next undying Mercenaries audio books I just can't get enough of James McGill his character is funny and cool at the same time he really cracks me up. Mark Boyett tells the story well send it another reason I keep coming back to these audiobooks. It makes a difference who reads these audiobooks some guys are really boring and other guys make it seem like you're right there with the characters. And Mark Boyett does a good job

    "Nice Way to Pass the Time"

    Other reviewers are complaining that this is a rehash of the former story lines. They are correct. But I didn't buy any of Larson's books for insightful plot development. I just like being entertained. Larson and Boyett have always delivered and they do again this time. Yes, it's all very predictable and it's still fun to listen to.
