Product Description

In the twentieth century Earth sent probes, transmissions and welcoming messages to the stars. Unfortunately, someone noticed. The Galactics arrived with their battle fleet in 2052. Rather than being exterminated under a barrage of hell-burners, Earth joined their vast Empire. Swearing allegiance to our distant alien overlords wasn't the only requirement for survival. We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers¿someone had to do their dirty work for them, their fighting and dying.

I, James McGill, was born in 2099 on the fringe of the galaxy. When Hegemony Financial denied my loan applications, I was kicked out of the university and I turned to the stars. My first campaign involved the invasion of a mineral-rich planet called Cancri-9, better known as Steel World. The attack didn't go well, and now Earth has entered a grim struggle for survival. Humanity's mercenary legions go to war in Steel World, best-selling author B. V. Larson's latest science fiction novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sci-fi book in a long time 7 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was given to me as a present whilst in bed with flu.
I didn't know anything about the author.I don't read this type of book normally,BUT I'm really glad I did.
I couldn't put the book down,the story was very good and really believable.
Not many books these days take me away from life problems but you really feel for the people in the book and couldn't wait to see what happened to them.
I do hope another book is in the pipe line as it deserves to be a series of say 4-5 books.
The best read this year and A new author added to my Xmas list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great squad based romp 24 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reminded me of steamship troopers and the forever war but with a nice turn on use of tech.
Decent characters, good dialogue, plenty of action and an interesting overarching political structure.
I'd love to see a follow up.

I stumbled on this book through my amazon recommendations. I'd seen it a few times, but didn't like the description. As is often the way, I'd run out of things to read and thought I'd give it a shot.

I found out very quickly that the description really didn't do the book justice.

Replace the 'bugs' from starship troopers with dinosaurs and mix in a machine that revives you when you die and you've pretty much got an overview of the story. Well worth the read.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyable, well written space opera.
Good characterisation , decent plot line and well thought out physics and physiology. I would certainly my pay to read more in this series, and will now seek out more B V Larson books.

5.0 out of 5 stars They fight. They die. They fight again. 13 Oct 2013
By Pam
Format:Kindle Edition
Thank God for a well written and well edited book for a change. I have read so many bad books recently that I was beginning to think no one cared about us poor readers any more. Just because I myself can't string two words together doesn't mean I don't have an important role to play in this relationship between the writer and the reader. Reading a book with great characters, punchy dialogue and original ideas is a great joy. So just for all the readers out there, well done and can we have some more please.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok. but maybe a little too silly for me
The revival machine basically ruins it for me. I am ok with overall plot but the fact you can die hundreds of times and still come back is abit much
