They hunt us. They bomb our worlds for target practice.
A star cluster in the constellation of Orion rotates once every 1,000 years. Those who rule there have an ancient tradition: When each cycle ends, they train their fleets by spilling the blood of lesser beings.
The enemy fleets are coming again. In response, the Rebel Worlds gather their starships to face the terrifying threat, and this time humanity is asked to stand with them.
The last time they considered Earth, Vikings in longboats were raiding English coastlines. Today, we're less primitive. Today, we're a target.
One man is chosen to command Earth's single ship in the Rebel Fleet. When the war breaks out, Leo Blake must win it...or die trying.
"Classic B. V. Larson. This book grabs you by the plasma cannon and won't let go. Fast adventure, fast action - and I loved the space-battles!" - S. Arthur

I found it this book to be a fantastic experience. Sometimes you just want to laugh at a story as unbelievable twists of fate and DuesEX Machina are flung around like salavia from a rabbid dog.
But like a good scifi B movie dont you want something that brings a smile to your face and lets you laugh and imagine such a wonderful world? If you want a good escape from reality then its worth it.
This book is basically the same as Swarm, Star Force Book 1. Different crew and slightly different story but, basically the same. Well written and performed. I enjoyed this very much and look forward to the next book.
Great story, narration, and just in general a great addition to the Sci-Fi genre! I highly recommend this book to any Sci-Fi fans!
This book gave me fix, while I wait for the next installment of Star Force and The Undying Mercenaries. If you look those series you will enjoy this book as well.
Funny listen, cats flinging tails and a rebel military who is self serving and disorganized. I am amazed at the alien cultures plucked from the authors mind.
Human nature...American exceptionalism...pending doom...and the universe moves towards entropy....unreasonable aliens....culture clashes and horny protagonist that makes captain Kirk prudish. yeah...read this.
not bad, just not good. story line is not inventive, characters not engaging. listened to about 2/3 of book and decided that there are better ways to spend my drive to work.
It plays a bit like a cartoon for adults. The pacing is pretty rushed, especially considering the scale of the story he's telling. The main character is endowed with inexplicably extraordinary abilities but is otherwise as bland as under-seasoned mashed potatoes.
It's imaginative and even exciting at moments but, for the most part, lackluster and not compelling. Decent for a quick read (maybe a round trip flight?) but nothing you'd recommend to a friend.
"Just good spoiler free review"
I was sceptical when I got this, I didn't think it was possible for B V to pull off another good space based book.
I was wrong, I don't know how but I loved every minute of it.
Mark's performance is stellar again, I'm so impressed with his craft.
More please. No holidays or family time just keep writing until you die.
Thanks so much again.
I always enjoy a B.V. Larson audiobook but Rebel Fleet stands out from the rest. Gripping with pace and filled with unique concepts.
