And ... Undying Mercenaries lasted longer than most. Very entertaining, ... then ..., just entertaining. The last couple of books I bought and read and enjoyed but ... they weren't as good.
So I bought Clone World. #12. For old times sake.
AND WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRISE! THIS ONE IS TOP-NOTCH! Not only is the action/combat/war plot/machinations/execution very interesting and fun - but James McGill is better than ever. He's turned up his inner dialogue/narration to the max while being completely in character - a better character than ever actually! He's hilarious. And ... I hesitate to say this ... but he's even getting a bit more mature! (just a little) And even _that_ is still in character! So if you like McGill - this is the book for you.
Looking forward to lucky 13 now!
It's a good story, but the last third of the book is riddled with typos. Very distracting.
Mcgill once again got a perma death "sentence " hanging over his death this time thou it was for following orders. It leads us to the biggest confrontation between the two of the galactic's biggest bad boys...we also get a drop on clavers homeworld 😊
Looking forward to the next one!!
Well this book is number 12 in the series. And I want more. So will you. You can read the book with no context and it will be a fine experience. But you'll miss the development of McGill from a callow youth into a veteran combining the craziness of a teenage video game player with no appreciation for his own mortality with the not so common common-sense that separates the truly high performing from the rest of us.
In this tome, McGill gets involved in an experimental operation that escalates quickly into an inter-worlds war. His willingness to entertain shenanigans most of us would prudently avoid and his desire to get straight to the nub of the issue serve him well as he navigates his way through some intractable situations.
It's a good read. Buy it if you need to while away some spare time in a nice way, like on a train, in a bus, or even on the loo. 😁
Everyone's favorite villain, Claver is back spreading his evil schemes and this time he really gets his hooks into Legion Varus. We get a decent look at where he has been hatching his plans all these years.
The Galactics are also back front and center and McGill is at the top of his game as he has them dancing to his tune as only McGill can.
The battle scenes in this book are down a notch or two as compared to other books , but there is still lots Legion Varus fighting, dying, and reviving.
Where this book really shines is showing us the various characters we have come to know and love and how and more importantly, why, their motivations and actions are evolving. This books changes everything for everyone. Sometimes the change is a little and sometimes a lot, but it is nice to see the overall story advancing.
So, a few nit picks aside, this is a great addition to the series. Get it and read it. Now!

In fact the series gets better and once I started this book and just couldn't stop until last page.
Long live McGilll!
Clone world is superbly surprising, as from the name I didn't expect it to branch out as much as it did - especially revisiting the Skey which are one of the most interesting species I have seen in science fiction for some time now. The book covered so many angles with ample space and ground battles to keep me on the edge of my seat, I thought the story with Claver was getting a bit dry but this spiced it up as well. All in all, I loved this book and will no doubt revisit it again in a few weeks.
It was mentioned at the end of the book we should suggest what we want to see in future books, for me it would be awesome to see some dabbling with time, but for sure I would like to see more space battles - and to see earths fleet build up more.....I think I am going to miss Bubbles :)
I just wish there were a few dozen more books in the series for me to binge-read!
This one is probably not as great as some earlier ones, too much rinse&repeat maybe?
But I would still buy the next one the day it comes out!
Waiting till the next book pops up.
