    Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes. In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

    What would have made Marines: Crimson Worlds better?

    The narrator needs work. I'm not going to say hes bad but its really hard to explain. Even when the narrator tries to put inflection in his voice everything comes across in a monotone sound. There are weird pauses to the point that it was driving me nuts and I couldn't get into the story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeff Bower?

    Mark Boyett would have been good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger, Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I didn't finish the book so I cant comment on the story. I just couldn't get past the narrator style/sound.

    Story

    On June 30, 1908, an object fell from the sky, releasing more energy than a thousand Hiroshima bombs. A Siberian forest was flattened, but the strike left no significant crater. The anomaly came to be known as the Tunguska Event, and scientists have never agreed whether it was the largest meteor strike in recorded history - or something else. Alien artifacts have been uncovered since the 1908 event, and a new star drive is discovered.

    What disappointed you about Starfire?

    I saw BV Larson's name a immediately bought the book without hesitation and probably continue to do so but I didn't realize this series may not be for me. The writing style is completely different, so much so that I feel like someone else wrote it and he may have attached his name to it after the fact and the books is much slower from what I've come to expect from him. I'm 3 hours from finishing the book and completely disinterested in how it ends.


    Have you listened to any of Edoardo Ballerini’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He did a good job.


    Any additional comments?

    I will continue to pick up BV Larson's books without hesitation but may skip this series.
