My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This second installment in the Undying Mercenaries series is not as good as book one, but it still has pull. The action/combat is significantly less, but the intrigue of Galactic Empire politics is building.
The Earth is feeling the fallout from the last mission of Legion Varus on Steel World. The economy is crashing, and the populace is pointing fingers and complaining. Things look grim and the home planet is a hostile place to be, so the opportunity for a new mission for our favorite Merc, James McGill, seems like a blessing. That all turns sour of course. Doesn’t it always? New enemies and high galactic political consequences mixed with typical McGill mojo and borderline insubordination (and some downright insubordination) all have the makings for an exciting book.
The final outcome and the lead up to the next in series shows a promise of more action and confusion to come. I look forward to the next book. I give this one 3 stars and call it a Satisfying Read.
