Inhaltsangabe

In the 20th 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.

huge disappointment

I really wanted this to be good and parts of it were. The action, while not groundbreaking, was nice and the world-building had some really cool elements (the undying soldiers part was an interesting concept). But other parts were very weak. Big plotholes (especially with the respawning system), very wishy-washy characterizations and a huge Gary Stu as a protagonist (2m tall, most useful soldier in his legion even though he is a wet recruit, always the one to save the day blablabla). My biggest problem though was the horrible writing for the women. I know that as a woman Im probably not the target audience here but damn. The women (all of them beautiful and sexy) either belong to the ever growing harem of ppl wanting to bone our protagonist or are horrible, spiteful b*tches wanting the permanent death of the protagonist. For barely any reason at all. There is no in between. Also that scene after the hero does something marvelous (trying not to spoiler) and the rest of the squad clear out the barracks and make the hero's current crush have reward sex with him? Gross. I dont recommend this.
