Weirdly and uniquely to my mind, the key in these books isn't the sci-fi angle but a legalistic one. In that, it's similar to the Daniel Faust series by Schaefer where the hero gets himself out of peril through cleverness rather than heroics.
If I had to characterize the series, I'd call it a lark in space. The hero tends to always find a love interest even in the most unlikely situations such as an alien fort. The way the hero gets himself and all of humanity out of danger always satisfies. By now in V7, each new book is like a reunion between the reader and the well-known characters which comprise the ensemble at the core of each book.
A truly enjoyable series.
B. V. Larson writes completely fun, readable, enjoyable stories. They are not deep complex tortured stories where you may never quite figure out what is going on and have to wade through miles of knee deep muddy prose to get to some indeterminate point. If you want that, read Harlan Ellison. Larson writes fun enjoyable stories about disreputable rogues who you have to love despite their ridiculous flaws. I would make a movie comparison. Blade Runner, 1 and 2 versus Guardians of the Galaxy. Larson is Guardians of the Galaxy. Both good but holy crap, was Harrison Ford a replicant or not? That's not Larson. And I know Ellison did not write Blade Runner, Philip Dick, Do androids dream of electric sheep?
The point is that Larson is fun start to finish and you don't have to agonize over what is going on.

The list goes on.
Give it a big stur, then you have James McGill .
If you want a fun read, with humour, fighting, intrigue, aliens, Sci - fi, spaceships, all rolled up with adventure, and bad guys, then this is for you..
All I can say really is MORE PLEASE!
Also raises the issues of reviving and not between the different armies.
Looking forward to the next world Varius tackles.
The whole thing is held together by the most excellent character of Mcgill. Cant wait to find out what scrapes he gets into next.
