Publisher's Summary

Earth's Star Force Marines invade an alien world!

In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission - one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

Extinction is the story of Earth's entry into an interstellar war between living creatures and machines. And to buy the peace, we've signed up with the machines.

Battle stations! Listen to another Star Force novel.

    Story
    "The story logic is lost"

    The story sequence is not coherent. The assumption on what the macros can and cannot do seemed twisted to serve the story. Also, the idea that a full army can go rouge on its command without questioning was ridiculous

    I rated it three because I like the narrator and somehow the story's basic logic attracts me

    I wouldn't recommend it but it might be appealing to someone else anyway

    Story
    "Series FInds it's Footing"
    Where does Extinction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ranks alongside Undying Mercenaries as the best Larson series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extinction?

    The ending sequence in all of Larson's books is epic. In this book the ending is terrific and links directly to the next book in the series. In many ways there is no break in the action between books


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

    Boyett narrates all of Larson's book and I cannot imagine anyone else doing them. He is Kyle Riggs.


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

    The character development of his girlfriend gradually begins to take shape in this book. She becomes a more dimensional character, adding to the storyline instead of providing window dressing. Larson is a good writer and over the course of these books the characters change and grow.


    Any additional comments?

    For my money Larson is the best military, sci fi writer. This is non stop action, that doesn't pretend to be something that it is not. Solid entry into a series that gets better book by book.

    Story
    "Concept good, characters lame."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Poor characterization


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Change the protagonist into at least a sufferable dork. The "love interest" part of the story was fucking ridiculous.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The action sequences are passable.


    Was Extinction worth the listening time?

    No. I can't finish it.

    Story
    "Worst ScFi in Years"
    Would you try another book from B. V. Larson and/or Mark Boyett?

    This is written like a very poor 1950's science fiction story. Not something something published in 2011. Bought it on spec during Black Friday sale and never finished it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    Story
    "a very nice ride"

    This book took me over two months to finish listening to. I've been so busy that I couldn't devote the time I wanted. I usually finish these in less than a week. the takeaway there, the reason I mention it at all, is that it's a strong enough book that it heald my attention so long. much of that is owed to the narrator.

    Story
    "Narcissistic, delusional, and disconnected "

    The main character values his children and women with no respect or emotion. The reading level is kindergartenish.
