Rogue World: Undying Mercenaries, Book 7 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
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.

It's an exciting read!
You won't regret chosing not only this book but reading entire series!
I am not going to complain about that! Having a mix of characters to draw from to manipulate and even carry a plot from thread to thread takes work! B.V. Larson knows what he's doing and how to do it, and gets it done with style.
The older civilizations run things from afar and are sticklers for their rules which, when broken, bring down extermination of worlds. Earth avoided such a fate previously, and became responsible for an area of space as a result. Now, Earth is again threatened, this time by its responsibility for the forbidden activities of a "rogue world" within its sphere. Things get complicated, as they always do.
This is all tremendously entertaining. My only reservation is that for a series that was about a new member of a mercenary company with lots of combat requiring frequent use of the revival machines, it has evolved into one in which McGill goes off on solo mis-adventures, sometimes involving a teleportation suit, and combat involving his familiar group is an occasional interlude. Inevitably, a certain been-there-done-that feeling creeps in.
This books has a lot of the global politics and some amazing interactions with the Galactics. Like Laugh Out Loud amazing dialog. So so good!
James has steadily risen in rank and I was afraid that we would lose some of his antics that he does as an individual. Not so! It is actually even better in some cases as he has more tools to use to try and get out of the situations he manages to find himself in.
Can't wait for the next book. It is going to be wild!
Thank you Mr Larson.
If you like a read that is a little like something like Lee Child would pen if he wrote a sci fi novel, this is for you.
James McGill is a larger than life character with many flaws whose physical presence belies an acute, unconventional mind.
Throw in a few romances, one with an alien, and more than a few puzzles for both the reader and the characters and this is a fun book.
Sure it's not Tolstoy, but Tolstoy is overrated when you're looking for some fun, easy reading.
In my humble opinion any book by Mr Larson is a must read. Buy this book. Treat yourself!

James McGill, as usual, gets promoted, is promiscuous, makes dodgy decisions, kills aliens & people, is often at the cusp of being "permed" or getting his whole species made extinct & dies and is resurrected.
Great stuff !
