    "Fun listen."

    Good space science fiction book. Lots of action. Interesting drama by being on the wrong side. I will read the next in the series.

    "Okay Hero Story But..."
    Any additional comments?

    Okay hero story, but I would have been willing to give a half or whole star more for the Story if Kyle Riggs’ sex-toy girlfriend, Sandra, was altogether eliminated. I could not think of any reason why this character was allowed to continue on other than to annoy me.

    Story
    "Good Voice Acting, Mediocre Story"

    I enjoyed the book, and Mark Boyett does a fine job of bringing the characters to life. But I have some difficulty recommending it overall. I had some issue with the main character consistently being so slow to recognize the consequences of his actions. Not just once, but over and over.

    Also, it seems that the author was so set on going in one direction with the story that he left holes in the action. There are a couple of avenues that could possibly have foreclosed the route that was eventually taken, and these possibilities were never explored. Forgive the vagueness of this, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone.

    That said, there is great action in the book and the main character is interesting and likable, if occasionally short sighted. It's an enjoyable enough story and I'll probably read the next one too.

    I listen to a variety of audio books constantly in car and gym. My reviews remind me what I’ve read & are hopefully helpful to you as well.

    Story
    "4.5 stars"

    I recommend the book. I have enjoyed the series so far and I’m looking forward to the next one. Great story, decent writing style, and great narration. I like the world and the theme of the book and the logic of how he “builds” his army, for example. It’s pretty original and seems like it has legs to endure a several book series (oh, I see there are at least 11 already and they're all highly rated, so guess I'm onto something here! :-) ).

    There are only a couple things I dislike; 1) there are frequent sex comments that are really unnecessary and seem childish. It’s not overly descriptive, excessive, or anything so it’s tolerable, but I’m not sure what value they add – at least not to an adult listener. 2) I actually like when he references facts like how French soldiers did X or the speed of Jupiter’s rotation or whatever, but unless I forgot something from the first book, I’m not sure why this guy would know these things. I think he was a computer teacher before the stuff hit the fan in the world, but it seems a bit far-fetched that just because he was a teacher he knows so much about military history and astronomy. Anyway, I like the way they are in the story and of course the fact that he knows these things is not the most unbelievable part of the book. I mean he is fighting space worms after all!

    Bottom line; go get the book. Enjoy!

    "Non stop action"

    Good continuation of the story line from the first book in the series. Imaginative scenario. Very well read with good voicing of characters

    "Good but his female characters are poorly written"

    Needs to learn how to write a believable female character. The girlfriend is like bipolar and the main character is horny at weird times.

    Great surprises in these stories. Loving the way he "screws the pooch" and then serenity gets him around it. Good forethought on the SciFi (and science) end as well.

    "Worthwhile sequel"

    This series begins to pick up speed at the first off-planet mission of Star Force. Don't expect much in way of deeper understanding, just enjoy the wild ride.
