    Kyle Riggs has been away from Earth for a long time.... What’s happening back home? In Empire, the sixth book of the Star Force Series, the story moves in a new direction. Earth falls quiet, and the few reports coming out of the homeworld are increasingly strange. Isolated in the Eden system, Riggs realizes his enemies are forming an alliance against him. Crushed between two monstrous fleets, the last defenders of Star Force must forge their own alliance with the biotic aliens. But which alien race can Riggs truly trust?

    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 saga continues as the Ca'cadasan menace prepares to assault the New Terran Empire - a menace humankind fled across the galaxy 2,000 years before. The fate of the Empire may rest on the abilities of one young man, and his skills at navigating the maze of Imperial politics amidst a war of extermination.

    When the human race faces extermination at the hands of an expanding species the last survivors travel a thousand years to reestablish the race ten thousands light years away. It is now a thousand years after the birth of the New Terran Empire. The race has aggressively expanded during that time, with a fleet that has never lost a war against an alien species. But the signs are there, the old enemy is back, and the Fleet will face its greatest challenge in a foe fifty times their size.

    What did you love best about Exodus?

    The story was about the evolution of persons in command and the inevitable, time of clash against the insurmountable object.With the authority that one might even dread, that comes a knocking.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The prince was my favorite so far.


    What three words best describe Finn Sterling’s performance?

    His different voices were great and very enjoyable but his regular voice seemed bored at times. Which I'm sure that happens in that business.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They Are Coming!!! Again!!!


    Any additional comments?

    The bell instead of just announcing the chapters was a little wrong to me. I'd rather hear what chapter or part of the story I'm in, so if I skip a chapter from the once in a while mishap it's easy to find my position. This story was well written and brought me to the point where I wanted to say, "get em boys...."

    Star Force is called to arms again! Outcast is a new beginning, the first book in a new spin-off series. Many peaceful years have passed since the Macro Wars ended. Most of those who fought against the heartless machines have aged - but not the ingenious artificial construct known as Marvin. His insatiable curiosity is as strong as ever, and he’s brought home fresh perils to humanity’s doorstep.

    Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert. But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers.
