Was drawn into the Star Force series from Book 1. Never did consider myself a fan of science fiction books but this series is a great listen and has led me to explore other science fiction series. The words paint a vivid picture and the storyline is captivating.
The book delivers what I expected from listening to others in this series.
I first listened to this book about two and a half years ago and since I've gone through all of the Jack Reacher books and did not want to wait a year for the next one I decided to listen to this one again, and I loved it just as much, even forgot a few details that kept me engaged. The best kept secret about these books is that you can get as much enjoyment going through the second time. Just like how you can watch a good movie more than once. I am going to be saving a lot of money because now I am going to go through them all again! And the narrator Dick Hill Rocks!
After getting through most of the Harry Bosch series I was looking to see what else Michael Connelly wrote and found the Mickey Haller series and this book. I was not disappointed. Now I have another series to get through and Mickey Haller, with his weaknesses and triumphs, is as just as likeable as Bosch. I also like how Harry Bosch is introduced in this Mickey Haller book. Expect all of the twists and turns and great dialog that you have been accustomed to if you were first a fan of Bosh.Thank you Michael Connelly.
I don't often write reviews, but I could not move on to my next listen without adding something here, since I value other's comments in helping me make my decision on what to listen to. This is a great book and a great listen read by the author himself. After listening to a lot of science fiction and spy and detective novels I wanted a break, and this was a good one. You won't be disappointed. The true stories and adventures will inspire you and make you want to be a better person and also give you more respect for those that serve and sacrifice in the military. You will also gain a better understanding of the conflicts around us and the role of the military. One takeaway I want to note here, if you ever have the opportunity to thank a veteran, wounded or not, for their service, also be sure to tell them that we need them in our society now as well.
I found this series, having gone through several similar genres and looking for something new. This one is even better than the first, containing several intense and captivating action sequences and enough good storytelling and character development to satisfy.
If you enjoy Lee Child's Reacher, Mark Greaney's Gray Man, Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp, Alex Berenson' s John Wells, and many of Baldacci books you will enjoy this series.
Some of main characters can be similar, tall, middle-aged tough guys, ex military or CIA, loners with issues, but if that is what you like, so what, and they are different enough, no one author invented the character type, enjoy.
Once you get past a bit of setup, the story captivates and delivers. I have learned to be a bit patient with science fiction novels since they often need to spend time painting a picture of a world and situation so unfamiliar to our current reality. This one really got going and held my attention. I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.
