    Kyle Riggs is in for a rough ride. In Annihilation, the seventh book of the Star Force Series, nothing goes as planned. The three fledgling human colonies in the Eden System are beginning to take hold, but the forces threatening to root them out are many. The Crustaceans are calling for help, despite the fact they are the sworn enemies of Star Force. Are they potential allies, or vicious tricksters? And why are the oceans of their world heating up?

    What did you like best about this story?

    The thing i like the most about the star force series is the characters are very relatable. This book has some similar concepts to Ender's Game because it's about another "species" (that being the machines in this case) who take on the humans, so if you liked Ender's Game this is the next series I would recommend diving into. The machines have an overwhelming force compared to the humans and the rest of the biotics. Overall I personally enjoyed the plot, and find myself rooting for the biotics and becoming sad when battles are lost and people are killed off.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall B V Larson is quite a fantastic author who really has a good story going. This story is fantastic but for those who don't mind a very detailed plot it is amazing. For those who haven't read any of the books yet beware it can drag itself out at times. To break it down every book is basically about one campaign that Kyle Riggs battles in.

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Marines: Crimson Worlds to be better than the print version?

    I consider audio books to be better than the print versions due to the fact you can "read" them while doing other things and usually, but not always, the individuals who narrate them do an excellent job adding to the overall story and plot.


    What other book might you compare Marines: Crimson Worlds to and why?

    In my opinion this book series is starting to play a similar tune to the Star Force books with Kyle Riggs playing the same role and Eric Kain.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall it's a good series with moments where the conversations between characters become a little awkward in the way they communicate between each other. The dialogue doesn't always flow easily between characters but so far the plot is good. Since I previously enjoyed listening to Star Force I thought I would give this series a try and i'm definitely going to continue and I would recommend this book to those who enjoys epic space battles and when the underdog comes in to save the day.
