    Story
    "Fast paced and gritty."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like old school action where the main character kicks butt and gets the girl, this is probably a good series for you. If you're looking for complex characters, dialogue, or scientific theory, you might want to save your credit.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If "Swarm: Star Force, Book 1" picked you up and wouldn't put you down, "Extinction: Star Force, Book 2" will inject you with Nanos. V.B. Larson does a great job of creating a world where action is king, and one suicidal man is just crazy enough to try filling the leading role. This is a fast paced, fun read that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's sprinkled with science, space, and tech, but keeps things flowing.

    I like to listen to a good book. Mostly Sci-Fi but some others. I listen to them while on the road or before I go to sleep. Thanks Audible!

    "Great series so far"
    Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

    I find this book as good if not better then the first one. Where I thought the first one was a little slow in the beginning, this one picks up from the first with non stop action.

    "It just gets better"

    after listening to Swarm, I downloaded the next two, starting with this one. Book two in the series did not disappoint in anyway. Now that I know the players in the story line and can relate to them, it is just getting better. I loved Swarm, I love this one even more.

    I have started to listen to the third book in the series and have already downloaded the last (book four)

    Mark Boyett is still bring the players to life for me. Easy to listen to. I will be looking for other books narrated by him. He is now moving to the top of my favorite readers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This was a fun listen! There is a bit of foreshadowing that I expect will payoff in future books in the series.

    "Book 2 Just as good as Book 1"

    B. V. Larson does it again.... Book 2 held my attention just as strongly as book 2. Anyone that is a space Sci-Fi fan will enjoy this series.

    Story
    "Absolutely horrible characters"

    The first book in this series was interesting because of the fascinating mystery that unfolded slowly about why the alien ships were doing what they were doing, and the battle scenes were exciting. This book has very little mystery, allowing the author to concentrate unceasingly on his annoying characters. The main character is ridiculously expert at everything though he was formerly a computer science professor. He is apparently the greatest military commander who ever lived, continuously out-smarting professional Generals etc. His girlfriend, the only female in the book, is a ridiculous character, who seems to be crafted straight out of an adolescent's hormone-crazed mind. She is an impetuous sex maniac who always "needs" to be tamed by the main character. This was an annoying waste of a credit. At least now I know to delete the other books in the series from my wishlist...

    Story
    "I love marines in space stories"

    I enjoyed this, and the first book for the most part. I did so get tired of Rigg's girlfriend, and the battle at the end was tiresome, I kept getting distracted which is a red flag. I usually don't want to stop listening to the books I get from audible. I do not think I will finish the series unless I run out of books, I do have a desire to see what happens next, but it's not a strong desire, maybe if the girlfriend isn't in it so much I will give it a try, Also, the marines don't feel real enough, it sounds strange for this type of book but when I read I completely suspend my disbelief. I'm more in the David Weber or Elizabeth Moon camps, grittier more complex... but these books have been fun just a bit too slick,.

    "Fun listen - kept me engaged"
    Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

    No, I almost never listen to novels twice.


    What other book might you compare Extinction to and why?

    There is not a lot that I have listtened to that I can compare it to it is a very unique aspect on an alien invasion.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    His narration was good, he kept me engaged and gave the story an extra life of its own.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    With an alien invasion you can not know who to trust.
