Publisher's Summary

A three-way battle for the known star systems breaks out, with the fates of many worlds and species hanging in the balance. Riggs realizes he must destroy his enemies before they destroy him. Seeking justice and revenge, he gathers his strength and ventures out on a mission of conquest from the Eden System. Humanity must fight to survive, and Riggs is the right man for the job.

    Story
    "The Emperor must DIE!"

    I am shocked. Fans who've been following the series know that Krowe needs to be taken down and now it's about to happen. But it's not JUST Emperor Krowe and the Imperialists Kyle has to worry about. The Blues have been up to no good and show their hand before Kyle and crew can even make it out of the Eden system to return to earth.

    What new abomination has The Blues created this time. How can they possible return to Earth and overthrow Krowe? What kinds of traps has Krowe laid for them along the journey back? What new creatures will we meet? What woman will Kyle choose? What's Marvin going to get into?
    .
    This is what we've all been waiting for and it isn't predictable and doesn't disappoint. I can't wait for more. I missed Sandra though. What a loss.

    As always Mark Boyett does a phenomenal job narrating. I really enjoy his voice for Marvin and The Blues. He really brings out the humor.

    "Decent story author still sucks at women"

    Again Larson gives a decent science fiction story but holy crap this guy just cannot write female characters. They're all crazy, whores or both. And the love scenes are so ham fisted and tacked on. He needs to stay away from these or get an editor to help him. Glad he avoided talking about women crossing their arms under their breasts (who says that?). This story was less repetitive than the previous book but he could've cut a good hour out of it for the same effect. He's improving but needs an editor to be good.

    "Star Force # 8"

    I really enjoyed book 8, I can't wait to see what happened next. What will happen to earth? who will run the planet. I really think that Colonel Riggs is easy to push around, he takes too many chances and gets a lot of his people killed. but he's a very fair character. I can't wait to see what will become of Marvin the robot . I hope Colonel Riggs will become a general now. Its way overdue.

    Story
    "Riggs is homeward bound"

    With the 8th installment of Star Force, Riggs finally makes the decision to save Earth from Crowe. This time out, the design of ever more esoteric nanotized military hardware takes a backseat to political musings and truly alien inventions. Needless to say, nothing goes as planned for Riggs, but he remains ever the opportunist and creates creative solutions for both his new worst enemies, the blues, as well as the Earth defenses.

    This time out gravity manipulators are exploited. At the same time Earth has been busy on its own with nightmarish creations of cyborgs as well as as redefined biology. The conclusion is satisfying on many levels and has Riggs entering a new phase of his career, but one that is likely not to be interesting to recount in the future. Alternatively, perhaps Riggs may eventually develop that wanderlust and return to the stars one day for more adventures.

    The narration is adequate and complements the pace and style of the story.

    Story
    "Riggs Pigs return to Earth"
    What did you love best about Storm Assault?

    Seeing the Blues attempt to fight back.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Storm Assault?

    Crow and Riggs meeting after all the years, and seeing what Crowe had done to himself in his fear over Riggs and Star Force.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    General Kerr being caught by Star Force.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Crowe attempts to kill Jasmine.


    Any additional comments?

    A good book. Again you can see its just a set up book for whats to come. But its by no means a bad book!!! Riggs has grown and changed a lot since the beginning. He is still having to come to terms over Sandra and hopefully with this he can finally close that chapter and move on to face the Macros and Blues. The Macros have been awfully quiet and I think they will be back with a vengeance since they failed to take Earth.

    "Awesome and inventive"
    If you could sum up Storm Assault in three words, what would they be?

    This was a nice end to an epic series that didn't seem too self indulgent. Very well done. When's book 9 coming out ? i want to know what's going to happen to the Macros and Blues and The Herd, the worms and all the others.....


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    very good


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Sandra's death, rebirth, then second death and rebirth and third death...


    Any additional comments?

    Do more Starforce books.

    Did you know you can put in a set of Ear-Buds, slap your Hearing Protectors over them, and Mow the lawn, Weed-Eat, etc, without your book being drowned out by engine noise? OR, you can just let the horses in the yard, and THEY'LL mow and weedeat (literally) FOR YOU!

    "Straight-Through Listen!"

    The EIGHTH book in this series and I still couldn't stop listening until it was finished! I listened to it straight through! THAT is the way to write a series!!!

    I was impressed with the way Mr. Larson finished the book too... It could be a "Solid Ending", OR it could continue!

    WAY TO GO LARSON!!!!

    "Frustrating Let down with Crowe"
    What disappointed you about Storm Assault?

    Kyle Riggs can't possibly be as genius as he is with military strategy and as much of a baboon as he is made out to be with Crowe. It's so frustrating and angering that his character doesn't speak out to share the truth with the world at large. I wish I never started this stupid series.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not this series


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    no

    "Entertaining story but frustratingly stupid hero"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This books targeted audience is someone with the intelligence of a 12 year old boy.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The basic concept of the series was very creative and the alien species development is actually fairly good and entertaining.


    Any additional comments?

    But the hero has every characteristic of a horrible leader.Stubborn beyond belief.ArrogantStupid eager to kill off men without a good reason to do sounwilling to listen to adviceTears down the moral of his teamemotionally unstable Unable to learn simple obvious lessons from his repeated mistakes.(these characteristics have continually worsen as series progress)Victory is usually achieve by the hero denying reality long enough for it to magically change. Either the enemies weakness change or actual physics of armor/weapons change. reads like a really cheep action movie where the hero wins in spite making extraordinarily stupid mistakes that hand victory to the bad guys. But then by shear stubborn will power manages to pull off an unrealistic victory.
