Overview

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, bestselling author B. V. Larson’s latest science fiction novel.

    As always, B.V. Larson delivers!  I think this may have been my favorite book of his.  I'll be watching closely for the 2nd book in hopes that this becomes a series!

    I love these types of solid military sci fi novels. If you're on the fence about this one, just go for it! I would love for this to turn into a series!

    B.V Larson, writes fantastic Space Opera.  Recruit James McGill

    B.V Larson, writes fantastic Space Opera.  Recruit James McGill had me from the first page. Using Roman ranks was genius. I found the story flow was on point. I wanted more and more with each page. This should be a series. Heavy Weapons Specialist James McGill should have more adventures. Write more!!!!!
