Star Force is called to arms again! Outcast is a new beginning, the first book in a new spin-off series.
Many peaceful years have passed since the Macro Wars ended. Most of those who fought against the heartless machines have aged - but not the ingenious artificial construct known as Marvin. His insatiable curiosity is as strong as ever, and he’s brought home fresh perils to humanity’s doorstep.
The new Saga in the Star Force universe begins with Outcast, the longest book in the series. A full-length novel of military science fiction by best-selling authors B. V. Larson and David VanDyke.

Rigs son is Very Much like his Father. A world of Bears! and another of Bird People. New bad things to fight. Lots of action. I can't Wait for the Next One!!
Inostrancevia - the uber Gorgonopsian.
Outcast scores a competitive 9.16 on my Modified Integrated Listening Fun (MILF) Scale. Why? Because it just does. Cody Riggs, Adrienne the Oxford educated fair haired rocket who also is the sister of Cody's murdered girlfriend (nice scenario B.V., you sick bastard) , the Master Sergeant and Marvin - the greatest "artificial construct" in the Milky Way Galaxy all find themselves in deep intergalactic excreta through no fault of their own. Cody told the Captain to go armed to the feast - you will know what I mean very early in the story.
Marvin. He is the driver of the action, the brains of the operation and, when all hell breaks loose as humanity is 9/10's through its collective circling of the toilet flush of extinction, the ultimate savior of Earth based sentient life.
Marvin got the word that his dreams of finally assuming command of a ship were crushed after Cody recited the "Law of Trover" pointing out that Marvin never left the ship. I had a mind camera playing that showed Marvin drooping at what you may call his waist, all of his once flagellating arms limp and his head bowed in a posture of total resignation and defeat. I felt so sad for him. However, as is always the case, Marvin found a way to circumvent the situation and through sheer force of personality and shameless manipulation persuaded Cody to brevet him as Warrant Officer thereby elevating him to de facto Captain Marvin. I felt so proud of Marvin.
I didn't cry. This wasn't really a "get the tissues ready" kind of audiobook. I did laugh a bunch of times whenever Marvin inserted his presence. As I have said before, and I will say it again, Marvin is the greatest non-human character in the history of everywhere. It doesn't matter what he says, I just start smiling and usually end up thrusting both hands in the air and shouting "Marvin!" I guess that is kind of extreme.
Get this audiobook. New characters, some old ones, conniving homicidal carnivorous panda bears and tons of laser beam firing kill vehicles. Even the smarmy Crustacean professor guy is in the mix. All I can say is thank you Mr. Larsen for keeping Marvin alive as a character. My day got a bit brighter and lighter as I listened to Outcast.
science- fiction fan
I was glad to see star force didn`t die out,this book is in the top 5.I especially enjoyed the underwater world(reminding of europa).New wolds and new species, professor hune `s crustecean talking down to humans really made me laugh,very good book,the best narrator for this type of story!
This audible book would be in my top 25 ! It's a very good action filled story read by one of the best narrators . The whole series is very good.
Of corse my favorite would have to be Riggs but I love Qwan as well. This is the first book with Kyle Riggs being the main character but he picks up right where his dad left off in the book before this one.
Mark Boyett has done a great job on all of the Star Force books. I hope they don't ever do one without him being the voice of it. He does a very good job of changing his voice for all the deferent characters and is very fluent .
I'm obsessed with audible
Cody Riggs is an adult now and off on his own adventures with Marvin. He's a chip off the old block and Marvin is just as funny and mischievous as ever. We see a couple of old characters and lots of new aliens and "rings"... It ain't easy living in the shadow of Kyle Riggs, so it's kind of a coming of age story for Cody. Luckily he met Marvin as a child and knows how to deal with him.
I'm so happy to have this spin off. I always wondered what Marvin would be getting up to once Kyle went back to the farm. Give me more please!
Marvin is always fun. But B.V. Larson can't write female characters. They are constantly mopy and passive aggressive when they aren't worshiping the protagonist. He gives them no depth so they are basically nice carbordboxes with racks. This might not be an issue for you. But when you have read 10 bocks with almost no characters development you lose interest. I won't read bock 11...
Prob. not B.V. Larson
No, This is more or less the bottom pile of scifi.
If you want space combat check out Ark Royal and for ground action lokk at The Empire's Corps. Both are lightyears better books.
No its from the person point of view .I like audio versions because of limited time to read .
Portals and Marvin , Pandas / Raptors ? really
I like him in the 1-9 books but the same voice is to much like the father is still running the show .
I Loved the Series but this one was to much like the father is still in the show , the son starts out as a ensign and then after the whole top brass gets killed he takes over as the commander ?
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
All the StarForce books.
like Father Like Son
If you are even looking to purchase the 10th book then there's nothing I can tell you that you don't already know! I look forward to the next 10 books from this generation & then maybe 10 from adventures of grandson of Kyle Riggs hahaha
