    In Battle Station, Kyle Riggs faces new challenges, new alien fleets, and learns the secrets behind the war he has been fighting for years. In the fifth book of the Star Force Series, the Eden system is in humanity's grasp, but can they keep it? Star Force is weak after a long war, and many yearn to go home. Knowing the machines will return with a new armada eventually, Riggs seeks a more permanent solution. Along the way, worlds are won and lost, millions perish, and great truths are revealed.

    Story

    This book picks up the action well and keeps it going. Adds well to the story line and fills in many needed points. Ends without a major cliffhanger that will bother you all through the wait to the next book. Some real fun twists in this book and some of the usual characters from the previous books are missing for much of the book giving a break to the hero's comical love life. Over all a good solid book and addition to the series.

    In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

    Lost and cut off from Earth, the crew of the starship Valiant seeks a way home. In the 11th book of the Star Force series Cody Riggs collides with the overwhelming power of the Ancients. They fly incomprehensible ships and consider humans to be curiosities. Caught between ghosts of the past and demons of the present, Cody is abandoned by everyone. His girl, his crew, and even his ships change sides, exiling him in the cold depths of space.

    The book is pretty good but not as good as the first in this spin off or the rest of the series. A must listen if you're a fan of start force though.

His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans.

    This And the entire series has ask the action and humor of Ringo and the depth off Weber. Some of the battles are a bit long winded and in true Weber form painfully over described but all in all its a great book and series. I relisten at least once a year.

    Emmy Award-winning actor Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Malcom in the Middle) follows in the exasperated footsteps of Samuel L. Jackson, giving voice to the long-suffering father whose indifferent child will just not eat in this hilarious follow-up to Adam Mansbach's international best seller, Go the F--k to Sleep.

    In a world full to bursting with would-be heroes, Jim couldn't be less interested in saving the day. His fireballs fizzle. He's awfully grumpy. Plus, he's been dead for about 60 years. When a renegade necromancer wrenches him from eternal slumber and into a world gone terribly, bizarrely wrong, all Jim wants is to find a way to die properly, once and for all. On his side, he's got a few shambling corpses, an inept thief, and a powerful death wish. But he's up against tough odds....

    Story

    There is nothing I can really say to describe the book without giving away the story except to say the book was hilarious! The humor is so dry and the timing of the narrator so spot on you keep needing to go back in your head and see if you heard things correctly. Cruel yet funny, sad but hilarious, and such a dumbfounded jacka** for a main character that you just want to beat him over the head the entire book. Oh and when you do want to beat this not real yet ever so irritating character just remember that he keeps telling people that he is not and never wanted to be a hero! This book goes many places most will not expect but it really is pretty funny and original. I recommend it to anyone that will enjoy both dry and dirty humor and likes a mostly monotone (intentional; not put to sleep horrible and non-emotional) yet spot on delivery of jokes and general antics.

    In a dark future America where violence, terror, and grief touch everyone, young refugees Mahlia and Mouse have managed to leave behind the war-torn lands of the Drowned Cities by escaping into the jungle outskirts. But when they discover a wounded half-man - a bioengineered war beast named Tool - who is being hunted by a vengeful band of soldiers, their fragile existence quickly collapses.

    Story

    This was a bit different from the way these books flow and the main character wavers between good and bad moral choices constantly but keeps you wanting to listen. The book touches on many different types of issues ranging from moral to political and has a pretty big underdog negative feel to it. You keep rooting for the main characters but bad things just keep on happening to them. It does not make it a bad book but it will bore those that like nothing but action and a certain amount of required architecture to these types of books. If you like end of the world (or at least society as we know it) books and have no problems with explicit violence and cruelty this book is pretty good, but if you are squeamish I would stay away from it.

    Story

    This book is pretty dated but it really does not matter. Ok the amount of smoking that takes place is comical and really the only thing that dates the book. It`s written so well that if not for the smoking you would be hard pressed to tell just how old it is if someone claimed it were new. The story flows very well and keeps you wondering about just what the hell is going on right up to the end and has a good mix of humor, action and mystery. It passes on long and drawn out descriptions of places and thing and sticks to the basics while giving you more than enough detail to completely enjoy the read. The narrator seems to know just how to read the book to give it that old detective novel feel while keeping you wondering why this book has princes in the title. It was really fun and a good imaginative story to boot!

    In the future as Bova here imagines it, Earth is an ecological nightmare, and humanity may well go the way of the dinosaurs. But overhead orbits salvation. A vast metallic island in space, the Trikon station conducts genetic research too risky to be done on earth - research that could save the planet.

    A decent story with some fun characters though the technology seems dated. An overall good standalone novel and mystery. Doesn't need any sequels and not Bova's best but worth listening to if you're a Bova fan.
