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.

No, I almost never listen to novels twice.
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.
His narration was good, he kept me engaged and gave the story an extra life of its own.
With an alien invasion you can not know who to trust.
The general idea behind the story was a good one but I thought the story was too simplistic and the characters are unbelievable. A college professor who is a combination of Steven Hawking, in knowledge, General Patton, in strategy, and Rambo in fighting skills.
I thought it was predictable.
The performance was well done.
I would wait for the DVD.
I like the story but his character development is a bit hard to believe. The main character goes from being a teacher to a ruthless disciplinarian and it seems a bit out of character. More disturbing is the fact that he is the only soldier with a girlfriend along for the ride... the "love story", IMO, detracts from the main story and is just plain silly.
No one in their right fictional mind would follow Kyle Riggs into combat. I have been hoping and praying that someone puts a bullet through his poorly used brain.
Totally enjoyed this one, action and adventure with a little bit of drama. building a good long term story where the solutions to the problems are always a suprise
So far i am flying through this series, I just can't put it down. This book was just as good for me as the first one, maybe just a little less - but darn close. Lots of action and creativity. Great listen :)
fast moving story.have too start at book one to have a clue what is going on.audible needs to stop with the facebook like rating....anyone can just keep going on and on and on with a book review.short simple and lots of ppl.
Where to start? The main character and his girlfriend are ridiculous. So many holes in the story as others have said. I rolled my eyes so many times and guessed the outcomes before they happened. Not because I am awesome, because this story is so simple, predictable and boring. There is such opportunity with the basic premiss of the story. Such a cool idea that BV Larson kills with his ridiculous know everything do everything main character. Definitely a stereotypical 1950's male fantasy come true. This is not the kind of SCI-FI I like. I trudged through two of these books hoping for something to change because I love the premiss. No luck. I realize I am in the minority with this review, and I really can't understand how so many people loved this series so much.
Great idea, but worked out in a somewhat one-dimension manner.
If it was well budgeted
