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

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.

Same as the last 6 books

What did you like best about Rogue World? What did you like least?

I really like the concept of this universe. Unfortunately, the author is clearly following a formula he established earlier in the series. This book is exactly like the previous books in the series. James McGill gets in some trouble before shipping out with the legion, he gets promoted, ships out, sleeps with several women, gets in trouble for not following orders, and somehow miraculously saves the day, and even though everyone in his chain of command hates him, he's still the hero. I just saved you the cost of buying this audiobook. Read/listen to the first four books, then stop. While the first four are also following a formula, the locations and situations change just enough to keep from getting too old, but 5, 6, and 7 are just too much of the same. It's a shame, because B.V. Larson has a great concept, but I think he's too afraid to deviate from his established formula, and he's killing the series.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Most interesting, the alien revival tech and the concept of humans being subjects of a galactic empire instead of being at the top of the hierarchy. Least interesting, if you've listened to the first couple of books in this series, then you already know pretty much everything that will happen in this book, the only differences are a few minor details.

What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration is great, no complaints here.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Assuming they'd made the previous books into movies, no. This would be exactly the same.

Any additional comments?

Mr. Larson, please please please mix things up a bit. I really like the core concepts of this series, but you've gotten too predictable. You're clearly following a formula, and that's fine up to a point, but it's as if you've got a story template, and you just fill in a few blanks and create a new title.
