    "Non-stop Sci-Fi Action"

    If you are looking for sci-fi that is fast-paced, fun, and incredibly interesting, I'd recommend the Star Force series for you. The author has carefully crafted a military sci-fi universe where new discoveries and surprises await, leaving the reader astonished at the depth of B.V. Larson's imagination.

    Most sci-fi series that I have read have at least one book where things do not click, or the plot seems forced, or difficult to believe. In contrast, every book of this series is strong, and I keep thinking that the best one is the book I just finished.

    Mark Boyett, the narrator, is quite amazing as he seamlessly switches his accent from one member of an international team to another to yet another. It adds an extra dimension of enjoyment over the text version of the books.

    Story
    "A budding galatic empire in the making"

    Larson's 5th installment in the Starforce series has Riggs way out in the hinterlands. The increasing tension between Crow and Riggs is present, but largely below the surface in this volume. Riggs also can't shake the pull of exploration. Although several rings away from Earth, Riggs is hellbent on clearing the Macros out of the Eden system where the Centaurs live. At the same time, another ring away, intelligent lobsters abide. Most interesting is that the mysterious Blues are made a bit less mysterious, although not less annoying. All in all, Riggs comes through as the master juggler, balancing various sentient races, his robotic nemesis, as well as the unique AI directed crafts that were so engaging in the 1st book.

    The sci-fi elements are a bit more varied this time around. Macro technology is qualitatively different from what Riggs is normally used to. The alien Blues living in the mass of a gas giant also makes for some fascinating scenes. Besting the Macros, saving an alien race, and hooking up with lifeforms responsible starting it all is all in a day's work. Have nanite, will travel!

    The narration is adequate, but unremarkable.

    "B.V. is the man,great story. Go Riggs Pigs!"

    I have one problem with this series,the stories are too short! Other than that,I love the originality that Larson brings to the table in each book. I can't wait for the next in the series.

    At this point in the series my review won't do much for a new reader. To the veterans,this title is more of the same and continuation of a great saga. Don't hesitate to buy this book. Worth every credit.

    "A good one, and an exciting ending"

    this book was very good.... i liked the twists in it and i liked and answers for te questions i had before...

    But lets talk about the ending of this book .. don't worry i won't say anything that will make you hate me or something.... But the ending was really good.... how Larson decided to end this book gives so many possibilities for the next book.... each book before had a clear and expected beginning for the next book... but for this one I have no idea what will happen next .. too many possibilities!!

    its a good and fun read like the other books... and i really liked this series

    Enjoy!

    "Furthers Story Line Well!"

    This book picks up the action well and keeps it going. Adds well to the story line and fills in many needed points. Ends without a major cliffhanger that will bother you all through the wait to the next book. Some real fun twists in this book and some of the usual characters from the previous books are missing for much of the book giving a break to the hero's comical love life. Over all a good solid book and addition to the series.

    "Sad.."

    I am so sad that there is not another book in this series for me to listen to. I really love B. B. Larson. He jumps right into the action, peppering the book with humor and an appropriate amount of human interaction. This is the kind of book I really hate finishing only because I know there isn't another one, yet.

    "much better than book #4 (Conquest)"

    While I do stand by my quite condemning review of book #4, this book #5 is MUCH better again.
    Gone are (for the most part) the artificial story parts that only seem to be in book #4 to either make life easier for the author and/or to help bloating the content of the book.
    While I skipped several scenes in the previous book due to inexpressibly artifcial and/or illogical situations this has not been the case even once with this book!
    While I'm cannot say that it is perfect or that is is up to par with the first book in the series - I definitely CAN say that I did enjoy listening to it!

    Additional comments:
    (1) I'm going to buy book #6
    (2) The performance of the narrator is perfect - throughout all five books so far the reading of the books has been very high quality.
    (3) English is not my native language

    "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.
