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.

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.
That is a certain. In fact I am planning to listen to the whole series soon enough, from first book to the last (Dead sun).
It remains true to the first person story perspective. It keeps you attached to the story while making sure you do not lose track of what is happening. You feel like your the protagonist in a story that is going its way and the only way to go is with it. And you will go with it to the end.
That is difficult to say, since Mark Boyett does a great job in is voice performance. He gives each character in the story a unique voice, allowing you to recognize each character exactly in the story. His ability to voice the emotions of all the characters in the story is also a very big plus. This makes the story much more immersive.
There were several, but if you really love the first book, you would know that it would not be right to spoil this wonderful saga.
Anyone who loves the first book, will love this story for certain.
I wont go in to the plots too much mainly if it 3 - 5 stars you may want to try it.
Kyle Riggs survived the first round with the Macros in book 1. Now he needs to Full fill the terms agreed with by the Macros and fight to retain his position in Star Force and Control over his factories and their Island.
I love this series always a lot of action.
Yes, I liked it. But the Rigs' girlfriend keeps hitting him. She needs to calm down.
I'm not a huge fan of military sci-fi, but this one has some pretty nice twists on the standard pattern. For the most part the characters are likeable and the plot is interesting.
Definitely. The story is action packed and exciting. The second half is much more interesting that the first which is all building action to the combat.
As soon as they join the Macros the book becomes impossible to put down.
KYLE RIGGS, super professor!
The list of humanities enemies just got longer
Really fun read, can't wait for the next one
This is a great distraction if you are looking to give your brain a rest. It is very engaging, has a great story line, fully developed characters and a good reader.
Marvin. you never know what he will do next.
the loss of nanites at the onset of the book
fighting for the survival of the human race
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.
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.
Have been an avid reader all my life, since I had a long daily commute audio books became a must for keeping me sane. Audible is good value
Detailed, expansive, thrilling
Jonn Carter, credible aliens and the exploitation of known technology in an expanded manner
The description of the worms attacking
High tech marines meet high tech machines
An entertaining series which I have enjoyed
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!
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.
