This series still has that special something that keeps me coming back for more. Long running series can get stale but with Undying Mercenaries BVL continues to serve up new adventures, new aliens, new twists for McGill to get himself and humanity in to. McGill is a dog, chasing any female that catches his eye but the relationship with Galina is all kinds of messed up. One part fun 3 parts manipulative, on her part and one part love or what passes for it in the legions. Plenty of action and we finally meet another galactic overlord species. Not as much face time with lower ranked leges, McGill's companions seemed a bit passive in this one for some reason. I'll be reading the next one, with the mess at the core worlds spreading to frontier 921 things are hotting up and I want to know what will happen next.
Now if anyone was looking for a sci-fi series to make this would be an awesome project! Getting the characters right would be the main hurdle but once they’re sorted and you through enough money at it. It would stand with the best of them.
Another twisted tale. I would really like McGill to end up becoming the new Emperor of the Empire. As stated in this book, the Empire as it exists now is in need of an Emperor to stop all the in-fighting in the core worlds. "Emperor McGill", has a nice sound.
