Publisher's Summary

A dirty deal was struck. Humanity was allowed to keep 300 rebellious worlds. In return, we declared war on a powerful enemy from beyond the frontier.

A frantic build-up of forces has begun, but the task is hopeless. Seeking allies, Earth's legions are sent to Blood World. A planet on the fringe of known space, where the people only respect masters of combat. Earth's Legions must impress them, but other alien powers have been invited to join the contest. The prize consists of billions of loyal troops - Earth must win.

Fighting and dying and fighting again, the struggle is half-mad - but so is James McGill.

Blood World is the eighth book in the Undying Mercenaries Series.

James McGill is my hero

What can I say, just when I thought it was over, # 8 comes out. This series is by far my favorite sci-fi guilty pleasure listen when I have the time to immerse myself in McGill's life & death & life & death....

Always Enjoyable Continuation of the Series

This continuation of the Undying Mercenaries series continues in the same vein. I look foward to the continuation of the series and believe anyone reading this book will enjoy the continued adventures of the same characters.

The last one of these I'll listen to

Yeah, ol' James McGill was always a teenage brained idiot, who ceases to function at the sight of a woman's behind, almost any woman's behind. After decades in service it appears he has virtually no meaningful relationships except his mum, dad and kid. I reckon that anyone lead almost exclusively by their nethers would have been permed long before.

I get it, I'm not the target market for this but the stories themselves held my interest long enough to forgive a lot. But I've had enough of one dimensional characters, every woman undoing their suits as soon as he turns his attention on them. It may be what some blokes may think women are like, or even wish that they were, but this total lack of respect, consideration. selfishness and sheer mysogeny is beyond forgiveness. I don't need romance, that's not why I read these kinds of books, but the "Me Tarzan, you Jane" thing is lazy and dated.

This tale also had plotlines large enough to drive a battleship through. It's a shame really, but enough is enough!

Perfect!

Just what I wanted to end (for now, I hope), this series. Did I mention that The Undying Mercenaries is my favorite series? It is. Thanks for a great romp through space, Mr. Larson.

Stories of James McGill are Awesome!

So happy I finally got to enjoy this latest installment. Just when you think the fates are sealed, some crazy twist from left field. Love these books. Too bad they don't come out more frequently :-)

Not his best.

Good as a next installment, but probably the weakest of the undying mercenaries series thus far.

Love the series but not this ending

The series is great! I’m always excited about the next book, but the ending this time really fell flat and felt rushed and abrupt. I was disappointed by it. As always the performance was stellar!

Compared to the previous books in the series...

This book seemed to be lacking. it seemed to expound on plots that could have been glossed over and others that were skipped over that should have been explored in detail.
Larson hit the target... but I'm use to a bullseye every time from this author.
If you liked the previous books you'll like this one.
