    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.

    Would you try another book from B. V. Larson and/or Mark Boyett?

    Yes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by B. V. Larson again?

    Yes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I found the character "Marvin" to be fascinating and any scene the robot instantly got my attention.


    Do you think Battle Station needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. Book 5 felt compressed.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad Riggs' girlfriend stayed mostly out of the story. Her character was annoying. Great series though.

    The crew of the asteroid-starship Thistledown has thwarted an attack by the Jarts by severing their link to the Way, an endless corridor that spans universes. The asteroid settled into orbit around Earth and the tunnel snaked away, forming a contained universe of its own. Forty years later, on Gaia, Rhita Vaskayza recklessly pursues her legacy, seeking an Earth once again threatened by forces from within and without.

    Jeremy says: "Excellent sequel with closure to a great story."

    Perhaps it wasn't from our time, perhaps it wasn't even from our universe, but the arrival of the 300-kilometer long stone was the answer to humanity's desperate plea to end the threat of nuclear war. Inside the deep recesses of the stone lies Thistledown: the remnants of a human society, versed in English, Russian and Chinese. The artifacts of this familiar people foretell a great Death caused by the ravages of war, but the government and scientists are unable to decide how to use this knowledge.

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "Enjoyable solid Si Fi-30 years old- still topical"
    "Epic SciFi."

    On September 28th, a geologist working in Death Valley finds a mysterious new cinder cone in very well-mapped area. On October 1, the government of Australia announces the discovery of an enormous granite mountain. Like the cinder cone, it wasn't there six months ago.

    Something is happening to planet Earth, and the truth is too terrifying to contemplate

    Greg Bear, yes. Stephen Davies, NOOO.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was difficult to distinguish between characters and their personalities when he was narrating.

    I actually purchased the hardcopy of the book and read it because I very much disliked the narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Awful narration.
