Its in the top two for the series and it's a series I recommend a lot. Very creative and the stories just keep coming.
I can't imagine another reader on this series and appreciate him very much. The characters all sound different and are brought to life very well.
Keep 'em coming B.V. I'll buy them all.
Starting to see shades of similar storylines as in other space oriented sci-fi. yet still it is cleverly disguised, in the mannor of rap music "samples" other music. But definitely worth your time cash or credit.
I enjoyed the continuation of what has become an interesting story with an interesting protagonist. If you liked the first four Star Force books, you won't be disappointed.
The plot twist that comes in Book 5.
Riggs, of course, but Marvin runs a close second.
I will be continuing onto the next books.
Love my sci-fi and fantasy, but delve into Historical and Biographical.
Story - 3
I found the book interesting as I am a fan of sci-fi/fantasy with space and aliens. I am not a great writer of reviews but the book itself had some parts that fascinated me with logistics and the survival of the main characters of the book, but it over time, would drag on in a diatribe or personal reflection of the mail characters. Now, sometimes these are not a problem in some books, but these tend to be a little more annoying than most.
Narration - 3
Now the book's narrator was ok (not great, not bad).
Overall - 3
I gave this a 3, as frankly, I consider this about an average story in its writing. The story line is probably a little better but some slow spots tend to drop it down a little.
Narration is fine. Earlier books in this series were fine. Long-term problems started getting annoying by the fourth book, so much so that I haven't finished the fifth.
I gave it a listen just to see if I still found it annoying. I did, so I stopped.
This is the fifth book in the series, and I started getting dissatisfied with the series by about the fourth book (Conquest). I think my problem is that the main character doesn't seem realistic anymore. When the series started, the character's actions were somewhat believable. By the fourth and fifth books, it's just plain obnoxious. You mean to tell me that a professor of Computer Science can't figure out how to encrypt email? And a former Army lieutenant can't think of a way to structure an officer corps into something like a professional military? It's like the author threw in these details of the character's back story, and then didn't follow that through to logical conclusions (or worse: forgot he included those details).
This book continues with the great battle stories we are used to. The ending leaves you hangin on for more. I cannot wait to read Empire!
I like this series it is fun to listen to and the story line is very unique. I have not read (or listened to) a space series with this type of story line. I would recomemmend this series to anyone who like space storys.
His use of characters and tech. He is still willing to present a heroic hero, rather than a part-time villain hero.
The fact that it keeps building in imaginative ways. It also remains true to the series.
I read well, so not much. That being said, he did a superlative job with both tone and mood. Very well read. I think the better compliment is that I lost nothing by listening to it rather than reading it.
I can't imagine having that much time, or indolence for that matter.
This was fun. Some insightful glimpses into human nature, but just plain fun. It isn't a life-changer, unless a distracting adventure is what you happen to need at the time. It is uplifting and well defined, in a time when we need both.
I thought the series was innovative at first, but eventually the main character began to drive me nuts. He is far too much of a super-sue. What is the point of having military advisors if you ignore them and do what you want? The female characters also began to drive me nuts. Sandra in particular is really irritating. Its like a normal woman is not enough, he has to make her a super hero. I can easily see Kyle becoming an overbearing dictator. He is well intentioned but he makes too many mistakes. This would be so much better if Kyle and his favored ones weren't the bestest at everything.
