This has to be one of the more annoying and depressingly unfulfilling sci fi mercenary books I've recently read. And it had so much promise!

Mag Force 7 is a mercenary outfit headed by Xris Cyborg, a cyborg (original, eh?), and manned by a truly interesting cast of characters ranging from hackers to poisoners to telepaths to explosives experts to medical experts to muscle and pilots and everything in between. Ex-military and everything else. This is the second book in a trilogy and I didn't read

Part of a trilogy (Mag Force 7): The Knights of the Black Earth, Robot Blues, and Hung Out.

Hung Out is a bit of a weak entry.

Knights is good, a little better if you read Margaret's Star of the Guardian trilogy (later she added a forth, which is marginal). Star is a dark story (single story broke into three books), like King Arthur story (actually, it is the King Arthur story to an extent.)

Each book is self contained, but reading in order is always better.

Robot Blues starts with a museum curator

This was one action packed space opera from the first page all the way to the last. This book has it all; babes, cyborgs, intrigue, interplanetary travel, and some really memorable characters. Oh, and how can I forget...Robots.
Sent in to steel what is supposed to be an old artifact turns out to be a key device. That's where the fun begins. This is a must read for any space opera fan. The Mag Force 7 are one of the most interesting Sci-Fi mercenary groups I've ever had the pleasure to me

In this book, Xris and his team of commandos are hired to steal an antique robot. Sounds easy enough, but practically everything that can go wrong with this job does go wrong. Meanwhile, the syndicate known as the Hung are tracking and trying to murder Darlene Mohini.

This book is an action-packed space opera story. I loved it!

Pretty exciting book, but part of a series and I cannot locate the other volumes.

Best part is the random manly arm sticking out of the lady on the cover.

Not bad for a sci-fi tale. This one is also off to Listia. =)
