    "Juvenile and unlikable characters"

    Normally I would look forward to continuing with a science fiction series that allows the reader some escape and entertainment. However I just cannot endure the main character anymore. He is base, petty, and represents the least noble aspects of people.

    It is just so difficult to like a character who in the middle of a struggle that will effect thousands of lives is more interested in hitting on a woman under his command and hoping that his girlfriend does not catch him.

    It is also ridiculous to believe that a professor turned farmer is the greatest programmer on earth, the most brilliant military commander, and the one person that should be in a position to alone decide the faith of humanity.
    I was hoping that after the first few books in the series, the author would try to develop a main character that the reader could like. Unfortunately he did not. And unfortunately I will not continue to read the rest of the series.

    "Great"

    Larson has created a world that seems to be possible. Who's to say we are the only species in the universe. One would have to be very narrow minded to think we are the one and only. I must get to the next book now if you don't mind...

    "Great story, albeit intense"

    The voice actor essentially is Colonel Riggs. Perfect conveyance of mood. The story is interesting - all the aspects of fighting off a computerized invasion force. The second act is often stressful, but such is the nature of the topic.

    "I love this book"

    If you are on the fence about crying this series choose to go on and finish. You will not regret it. I have listened to all of the books in the star force series and I love every minute of it.

    "Well that escalated quickly"

    The overall pattern of this series is to make everything bigger: bigger battles, bigger ships, bigger threats, bigger problems.

    The spectacle keeps coming. And I'm enjoying this ride.

    Story
    "Humanity has the upper hand, but for how long"
    If you could sum up Conquest: Star Force, Book 4 in three words, what would they be?

    Trust, friendship, betrayal.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The forming of new cultures in the stories that you would almost think that they truly exist. You will listen to learn more of the new aliens and allies that arrives.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    As before, he continues to give life to the characters of the story. Now he also brings voice, and life, to these aliens that you would make you almost think they exist. You will be surprised and immersed in this story continuously.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again there were many and, as before, as a fan of this series, I will not spoil it.


    Any additional comments?

    Lets go for humanity and its allies.

    "worst of the series?"

    Lots of redundant information, lots of bloated writing. Backstory gets repeated often, sometimes within a few minutes. Characters do ridiculous things, like having sex on the beach while an alien invasion is overhead.

    "Another Solid Story From Larson"

    I've been reading the Star Force series from book one and have now completed
    Star Force: Conquest which is book four in this saga. Each book consolidates
    a little more the position of Star Force but also allows for further ongoing
    conflict between the Macros and Star Force. I cannot really say too much
    more than I have already done so in my reviews of previous books in this
    series as Larson is a very consistent writer and the quality of his stories
    wavers very little thus far.

    This book is another of those that are sort of a story of two halves. The
    first act takes place mostly on Earth as Riggs and his Star Force defend
    their home base from a massive Macro assault. The second act takes the
    battle into space and into the worm system. Alliances are formed and it's
    this part of the book that I found the more interesting of the two acts.
    Again, the rather irritating and petty Crow character is present but
    thankfully doesn't play much of a role. I can sort of see why Larson has
    written this character as he acts as a thorn in the side of Riggs but
    perhaps it's time for him to be killed off by the author sometime soon I
    hope.

    Sandra's character is further developed in this story and she assumes the
    role of bodyguard to her lover Riggs. Other than that, Riggs just seems to
    either be considering how shapely she is or cavorting in the sack with her.

    For some reason never explained, Riggs' trusty sidekick, Kwan has been
    demoted from Captain to First Sergeant. Another very minor observation I
    spotted was the mention of having ballistic submarines surface in order to
    fire their missiles. Such vessels do not need to surface to do so and
    surfacing would give away their position which would immediately give away
    their tactical stealth which sort of defeats the point of having ballistic
    submarines. A simple fact to research so a little surprising that Larson got
    that wrong.

    Star Force: Conquest is another excellent addition to the series which is taking shape nicely and as ever we are left with an ending that entices the reader to come back for more.

    "satisfying Sci-fi"

    The storyline is good, and the book is well read by the narrator. A couple of the characters have unusual and inconsistent accents which can be mildly off-putting, but on the whole Mark Boyett does well. The conflict between nano and macro technology is interesting and held both my attention and that of my three teenage boys. My wife wasn't keen at first, but eventually began to enjoy the books. Occasionally, passages are repeated for no apparent reason (especially when the commander's strategic decisions or technologies are explained) which can be a little irritating. As well as this, the narrator's unusual pronunciation of 'vehicle' jarred as did the author's repeated observation of a female character's 'shapely form'. We all found the regular end of chapter chapter sex scenes a bit cringe worthy. Despite these observations, we've enjoyed them enough to listen to all four books in the series so far, so they can't be that bad. You'll need to like sci-fi to persevere though!
