A new world, more aliens, and even more Mechs!

The Skaintz Imperium was eradicated from the backwater planet of Garm, but at great cost. The population of the world was cut in half within weeks, and Garm will never be the same. At least humanity can breathe easily knowing that the mysterious aliens are all dead.... But are they?

Unadulterated Enjoyment!

I strongly suggest you read the previous book in the series (Mech 1: The Parent) prior to reading this installment.

This story was a very fast and fun read that completely entertained and engrossed me. The plot held my attention so completely, I finished this book in one day.

The story delivered exactly what I was looking for, a creepy and creative uncomplicated plot. I just could not put this book down.

I highly recommend this book fellow SF readers and also recommend to fe...more

As a sequel, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the story woven by Larson. As a story in its own right, I'm not sure if it is strong enough to stand alone by itself. Read in context as a sequel though, it builds on a existing universe and gives enough to quench the thirst of die-hard fans. Again, the aliens were hideous and brutal, with a distinct conniving nature thrown in this time round. The heroes were portrayed satisfyingly and richly, struggling against enemies within and without.

I'm really liking this sci fi series that pulls from a lot of familiar territory - bug/biological space-faring invaders, cyborg-formerly human mechs, parasitic-mind-control aliens. The campy sword fighting got a bit corny for me at times (Really? Sword fighting in space? I guess Star Wars did it, why not this), otherwise this read was a really great time.
Mech 2 exceeded my expectations as a sequal. The story was better developed and the action more believable than it was in the original. Granted that's not saying much but if you enjoyed Mech 1 and still have an appetite for alien horror and popcorn science fiction then chances are you'll enjoy the sequal.

I find these books horrifying. The monsters are so unhuman that it scares the hell out of me. It also makes it difficult to read at the end of the day to unwind. It's scarier than Alien, Aliens, etc. T
A good second book in the series. I found it a fast read and very hard to put down (which is maybe why I read it so fast ;)

Good ole alien battle, space opera, sci-fi.

2nd in the series is a bit better than the first but it's interesting rather than riveting. Characters are a bit shallow but a great vacation/airplane/airport read
Still some plot holes and books should have been a little bit longer to explore all the angles, but the story is compelling enough to warrant the time.
Much better than the first book. The ending is a bit disappointing, but I guess it's meant for a cliff-hanger.

carried on the story with the same pace and exciting space alien battles, better than Mech 1.
