In Battle Station, Kyle Riggs faces new challenges, new alien fleets, and learns the secrets behind the war he has been fighting for years. In the fifth book of the Star Force Series, the Eden system is in humanity's grasp, but can they keep it? Star Force is weak after a long war, and many yearn to go home. Knowing the machines will return with a new armada eventually, Riggs seeks a more permanent solution. Along the way, worlds are won and lost, millions perish, and great truths are revealed.

Battle Station is a military science fiction novel by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

    "The Narrator is one of the best"

    You won't get tired of listening to this narrator. He is one of the best if not the best in the business.

    Story
    "Classic BV Larson"
    What did you love best about Battle Station?

    I enjoyed the continuation of what has become an interesting story with an interesting protagonist. If you liked the first four Star Force books, you won't be disappointed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The plot twist that comes in Book 5.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

    Riggs, of course, but Marvin runs a close second.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be continuing onto the next books.

    Love my sci-fi and fantasy, but delve into Historical and Biographical.

    Story
    "Interesting but not Astrounding"
    Any additional comments?

    Story - 3
    I found the book interesting as I am a fan of sci-fi/fantasy with space and aliens. I am not a great writer of reviews but the book itself had some parts that fascinated me with logistics and the survival of the main characters of the book, but it over time, would drag on in a diatribe or personal reflection of the mail characters. Now, sometimes these are not a problem in some books, but these tend to be a little more annoying than most.

    Narration - 3
    Now the book's narrator was ok (not great, not bad).

    Overall - 3
    I gave this a 3, as frankly, I consider this about an average story in its writing. The story line is probably a little better but some slow spots tend to drop it down a little.

    "Part 1 of a fun series"
    Any additional comments?

    I like this series it is fun to listen to and the story line is very unique. I have not read (or listened to) a space series with this type of story line. I would recomemmend this series to anyone who like space storys.

    Story
    "Still good, and branching out. Best yet."
    What did you love best about Battle Station?

    His use of characters and tech. He is still willing to present a heroic hero, rather than a part-time villain hero.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that it keeps building in imaginative ways. It also remains true to the series.


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I read well, so not much. That being said, he did a superlative job with both tone and mood. Very well read. I think the better compliment is that I lost nothing by listening to it rather than reading it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I can't imagine having that much time, or indolence for that matter.


    Any additional comments?

    This was fun. Some insightful glimpses into human nature, but just plain fun. It isn't a life-changer, unless a distracting adventure is what you happen to need at the time. It is uplifting and well defined, in a time when we need both.

    Story
    "Very Good Indeed"
    What did you like best about Battle Station? What did you like least?

    Excellent continuation of the story. Some inconsistancies and repeated behavior by the characters. One would think that trusting instincts would grow on a person instead of having the same respons as in the first book.

    Story
    "Another Great book in the Star Force Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Battle Station the most enjoyable?

    Again Larson creates a book that makes me take a few extra laps around the block so I dont have to get out of the car and stop listening to the book. I hope there is a sixth book to this series soon.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Battle Station?

    The Marcros adapting caught me by supprise.


    Any additional comments?

    is you haven't read this conquest yet, I would suggest starting with Swarm and reading the whole series. While you can read the books out of order, it is much better in order.
