Présentation de l'éditeur

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 spans the Milky Way. Our only worthwhile trade goods are our infamous mercenary legions, elite troops we sell to the highest alien bidder.

In 2122 a lost colony expedition contacts Earth, surprising our government. Colonization is against Galactic Law, and Legion Varus is dispatched to the system to handle the situation. Earth gave them sealed orders, but Earth is thirty-five lightyears away. The Legion commanders have a secret plan of their own. And then there's James McGill, who was never too good at listening to authority in the first place...

In DUST WORLD, book two of the Undying Mercenaries Series, McGill is promoted to Specialist and sent to a frontier planet outside the Empire. Earth's status within the Empire will never be the same.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Next world 28 mai 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I liked the 2 novels Steel World and Dust World. B.V Larson writes well and spin a story sometimes incredible but the result is always pure entertainement. The author requested some input about what kind of world should feature in the next novel. Well, for what is worth and free from copyrights, here are 2 ideas:
As enforcers for the sector Legion Varus will be called upon to re-establish galatic order.
1) On an industrial world full of religious independantists intent in breaking away from Galactic law. In short a sort of Falujah with intense urban warfare, political back stabbing and humanitarian aid to a mostly hostile population.
2) on a jungle world, where a powerful civilsation has decayed beyond recovery. What's left are mighty ruins and a degenerated population of sort of tricky monkeys with mimetic capabilities, Sought after local ressources are no longer being traded, which prompted the galatics to intervene. Add without restraint man-eater plants and ruthless fauna to make things interesting.
McGill will have to be truly undying to survive either of those!
Best regards and encouragements

Dans la droite lignée du premier volet de la série (Steel World), Dust World est du space opéra sans prétentions, divertissant et rythmé.
L'histoire de ce second volet est bonne, mais ses rebondissements sont un peu moins exaltants que ceux du premier volume, certains passages sont même un peu longuets.
Ça reste du très bon divertissement, avec de bons personnages et une intrigue globale intéressante. Les scènes d'actions sont bonnes, l'humour est toujours présent.
Je vais lire la suite.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Suite vraiment décevante 19 juillet 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
J'avais beaucoup aimé le tome 1 (j'avais mis *****), cette suite est sans intérêt, on se doute bien que la légion Varus va faire une mission pourrie, mais les aventures, les aliens, les gentils et les galactiques ne cadrent pas avec l'univers bien mis en place dans le tome 1. Les combats nombreux et les coups de théatre sont trop artificiels
Dommage

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Strong Second Volume In An Exciting Series 17 avril 2014
Par Paul Cassel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Forty or more years ago, Joe Haldeman set a weary tone for his 'Forever War' novel - a tone which resonated with a nation and a world then weary with global conflicts and especially Vietnam. This tone has been used many times in the subsequent years here and elsewhere.

The theme of these books, then as now, is a dystopian future where most young have little chance at anything but a lifetime of watching TV and being kept at a minimum subsistence level by welfare or signing up for the military. While the future in Dust World and it's predecessor is not quite so dystopian, it's close.

The twist here is that the galaxy, or as much of it as concerns Earth, is ruled by alien bureaucrats who'd make the party faithful in the Soviet Union look like free wheeling swingers by comparison. The Earth has to abide by its rules or face extermination. Part of the rules is that it must have a product to sell to other worlds. For backwards Earth, that commodity is mercenary troops. Our hero, back in V1, signs up and gets stuck in the 'dirt' outfit which labels itself in Latin the word for 'bent' or 'crooked'.

In volume one, the mercs go to war and our protagonist gets tangled up with the aliens cleverly getting himself and Earth out of this or that situation mostly by trickery. Here, we have another campaign which takes up most of the book but which, at the end, also involves the aliens who are, as usual, in a very very bad mood.

Can our hero do a repeat and bail the Earth and his buds out again? Well, that's the question, now isn't it? If he does, then how?

As with the first novel, I enjoyed the ride and hope to see this series continue. I'd like to get some alien perspective which bugged me a bit. That is, now that we're done with V2, we still have no alien perspective on why they are always in such a foul mood.

Really a fine ride but be sure to read V1 first.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good ol' sci fi in the tradition of Heinlein and Haldeman 30 août 2014
Par Joanna Daneman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is the second installment in the "Undying Mercenaries Series" and it starts out as well as Steel World -- Book 1) The Earth is losing its lucrative (and only) contract to supply mercenaries to the rest of the Galactic worlds, even though McGill almost singlehandedly pulled off a victory rigged not to win in the last book.

This time, Varus Legion gets a new contract, and McGill nearly doesn't make the muster call (that was not terribly well explained--why was his "tapper" offline?) They are attacked by, you guessed it, a really non-humanoid, vicious, ugly, and hungry set of aliens and end up on Dust World.

The opening chapters are excellent. The science in the "science fiction" is always thoughtful. What happens on alien worlds when you encounter alien potential food sources? Poisonous fish? Toxic pineapples? How to live on a world with limited resources?

My only problem with the Steel World series is that the main characters are a bit unlovable. We're meant to view McGill as the protagonist, but like his best buddy Carlos, he's more than a bit of a jerk. His "sergeant" (they call him Veteran) is also a jerk--occasionally shows a softer side but only slightly. Very little dimension and backstory on Harris. We need more. The brass have in in for each other and the recruits are just pawns on a chess board. We need more backstory. Why is Turov so vicious? What's her story?

The aliens are also kind of flat. They are mostly all non-humanoid, slimy, scaly and very hungry. They eat the defeated. Eewww! There could be more on the alien culture but we never see them from their side, only as huge enemies, led by the unsympathetic Galactics, who don't think much of us humans. This all gets old.

Even with these criticisms, this is great science fiction. It doesn't rise to the level of Heinlein or Herbert but it is up to the level of some of Asimov (who also had character development issues in his writing. But he was a master of plot--as is Larson.) Well worth reading if you love science fiction. Won't stay with you like Heinlein's books or the Dune series, but like Peter Hamilton's science fiction, you'll have a good time as you read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Better than Steel World 27 mars 2014
Par Joshua Wachter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
With Steel World I was asking myself why I would continue to read this series but with Dust World the author delivers. I liked this one much more than Steel. We get some cool new tech goodies to play with, we get fighting, action, genetic mutations and an alien invasion. Not to mention Galactic Politics at its finest 'worst'.

But through it all our hero plows forward, most of the time even with some idea of what he hopes to accomplish. I especially liked the last chapter where we face off with the alien Nairibs really gave this book a sense of accomplishment.

Larson is getting better and better. Best military sci fi author in the genre hands down. Protagonist that is fun to follow, fast paced, cool tech, new ideas, great action, and a page turner. I for one hope that others follow in his footsteps because he is redefining entertainment in this genre. Dust World was a great read, a good follow up to Steel World,and I can't wait for the next book

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How About Another Colony? 23 août 2014
Par Jean Oldham - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I'm becoming increasingly fond of this series. The main character grows and changes while remaining true to his nature. I like the analogy of the Empire to the Roman Empire. They both got too big and started falling apart. And bye the way would colonizing the squids water planet with cetaceans be acceptable? They aren't humans after all
