A few notes to Mr. Larson:
1. I'm a big fan of Floramel. I really like her combination of intelligence and naivete. I know McGill is nowhere near ready to settle down, and his dealings with the various women characters are part of what makes these books so fun to read. However, I humbly request you keep Floramel a part of McGill's life and experiences.
2. I also appreciate those father-daughter scenes with Etta. She is another terrific character, and I'd love to see her grow up in the series. Shoot, maybe she could have her own series when she is old enough!
Please do what you have to do to keep this terrific series going!
So, enough of the gratuitous praise.
Blood world is another of a series of books featuring McGill, an overaged adolescent in an intriguing future where death is a painful inconvenience for the armed forces of Earth. You do not need to read any of the predecessor books to be able to understand this one but it does help you love the characters more and appreciate their motivation.
McGill is now at the rank of Centurion. Yes, old Roman military titles are in use, however this is not a throwback to an alternate timeline in which the Roman civilisation survived.
And with the greater responsibility thrust on him McGill is dealing with more mature issues such as a daughter, the problems associated with shagging anything that shows even minor interest and the fate, once again, of humanity.
If this all sounds like one of those dreary sci fi pieces most reminiscent of The Bold and the Beautiful or whatever passes for a daytime soap these days, then cease your thoughts of boredom. For this is not that awful thing. This is funny and quirky and certainly worthy of your time.
It is however an unfinished tome. But the author needs to fund his next widescreen tv or vacation to the Maldives and a sequel (or a ninth-quell?) satisfies t
his need and also mine to find out where McGill us going to be and who he's going to do... errrr I mean what... I think.
Try it out. It's a fun read and great for the bus, train or a quiet corner.
Bit the BIG QUESTION- why has Claver never been permed? He has broken all the major laws set up by the premise of the series. Poison him, then shoot, stab, and hang him over a roaring fire. Sell tickets to the event!
There is just something about this flawed character who has this inner sense of doing the right thing regardless of the cost to him that appeals to me.
I am sure I will continue to be a fan of Larson in general but I hope to see this series continue.

But havind said that, 4/5 of the book are very enjoyable!
If you've read books from this series before, you know what's coming, bloody battles, death, back stabbing senior officers, more death, revival, "romance". All the ingredients for an enjoyable read.
Mais que c'est drôle, que cette idée des mercenaires increvables est géniale, que le background de cette série est réjouissant !
Ce huitième épisode de la série, mené comme d'habitude sur un rythme endiablé, nous fait retrouver des vieilles connaissances, les géants de Dust World, les jolies chercheuses de Rogue World, et bien entendu les Claver, Galina et autres Némésis de la série. Batailles dans l'espace, combats stupides, galipettes, rien ne sera épargné aux valeureux lecteurs de cet ouvrage.
À lire sans modération et sans sérieux.
Génial, et pis c'est tout.
