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?
Even as Riggs flies out to investigate the situation, more mysteries arise. The Blues are making vague threats, and Earth is suing for peace. Who is to be trusted, and who holds a dagger behind their backs?

I couldn't wait for this one to come to audio, but it was worth the wait. This is a series that you can follow from book to book. Thank goodness Larson doesn't repeat himself over and over again like other writers.
Annihilation is the 7th installment in the Star Force saga. Riggs continues to slowly build up a human settlement in the Eden system. He has managed to surround himself with nearly all the various intelligent species that they have run across: the worms and crustaceans are each one system over while the centaurs and the blue occupy Eden. Farther away, with the macros on one side and a growing hostile Earth led by emperor Crowe on the other, Riggs is boxed in while trying to simultaneously build up his fighting force and grow a sustainable colony.
In spite of being such a nice guy, everyone seems annoyed with Riggs. Regardless of his attempts, the crustaceans remain defiant, pedantic academic twits, while the blues reveal themselves to have greater nefarious intentions. At the same time, Earth makes another try at assassination.Riggs faces some bitter disappointments this time around and the odds of his survival are not improving. At this point, the space battles are becoming a bit too repetitious and the aliens are becoming quite annoying. Without some major future plot development, Riggs will simply spend the rest of his existence battling unbeatable adversaries.
The narration has remained so-so, although the character distinction is slowly improving.
It is my opinion that Larson's character progression be taking a hard turn for the worse in this installment.
I could have added more to this review, thats if i hadnt spent my time since listening to this insallment on subconciously repressing any and all meandering thaughts on said book. =(
Fly ball for Mr. B. V. Larson. I found myself rather surprised but I hypothesize that Mr Larson be only human. Thus consequently 6 out of 7 homeruns be nay shabby at all at all.
Seeing as the procentages are in favour I feel disposed to wager my happiness on book number 8 in this great series. =D
