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

    "Went on binge w/ this very good series.4-4.5 stars"

    Went on binge w/ this very good series.4-4.5 stars on average. I'm catching up on reviews for books #4-11. At this point I'm ready for a break from the series, but will surely return for more. It's hard to make battle after battle interesting for this sort of space sci-fi book, but this series seems more creative than several similar books, and the overall story is good.

    Story
    "Welp maybe you oughta quit"

    The lead, Kyle Riggs seems to lose his focus. While his exploits have always been fantastical, they now border on "where's the cape" stuff. The real treat is the guy reading. I was and have been entralled by his interpretations. My only concern was his attempt at "ethnic characters." Some might say those potrayal might be racist, sexist and a bit dumb. Korean farmers/Marines are pretty articulate (and big). Latinas are not raging jealous sex pots and Black assassin's aren't "Urban."

    "wow! Incredible. Remarkable writing & performance."

    BV Larson is the true heir to Edgar Rice Burroughs. Filled with action, humor, grit, credible science fiction, human insight, and touching pathos. The pacing and details flow by smoothly. Mark Boyett's performance is outstanding and mesmerizing.

    Story
    "Book 8 already? I'm still interested."
    If you could sum up Storm Assault in three words, what would they be?

    Inevitable- the return to earthStrong- the storyline has perseveredQuirks- A few odd issues have started to appear


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The self aware, incredibly curious, robot Marvin. He (It) is a free spirit that is driven by curiosity and often brings comic relief.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    Well read


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Regarding the "QUIRKS" I will try to explain without spoiling the book. Proceed with caution if you have not read the book. I could not follow why the cyborgs did not need a head. If a creature is based off of a human a head would be an integral part of the being. I could not help but think that it would be incredibly inefficient to remove the head and transpose functions of the brain and eyes elsewhere on the body. This becomes relevant in a battle scene where someone gets decapitated. I actually believe the decapitation scene may become the first flaw in the storyline that may start to unravel this series for me. No book series can go on forever. I am impressed that this series kept me going until book 8. I think I will continue with book 9 just to see if my predictions are correct.

    What did you love best about Storm Assault?

    Marvin. That crazy robot is the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Resolution. Riggs finally kicked his enemies asses and one at least one side of the conflict.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    Mark Boyett is great. The guy can really tell a story and he does characters well and always is able to line up his characters never straying from tone or accent. This really helps you to stay in the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, though I had to stop, real life happens and interferes with my books all the time. :-)


    Any additional comments?

    I think that BV Larson is getting better at writing women. This suffered significantly in his earlier work but I think he might be more on track, though to be fair almost all of them are dead so he doesn't have a lot of female diversity to write about. P.S. I miss Sandra.... :-(

    "Not up to par"
    Would you try another book from B.V. Larson and/or Mark Boyett?

    Absolutely, despite not enjoying this book as much as others in the series, I will eventually muster up the courage to read another. This is the first book that I didn't give at least 3 stars to within this series, so it deserves another go around.


    Has Storm Assault turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I will always be into SF books. It is apart of my thought DNA.


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

    It did have its moments. My main issue was that Kyle Riggs really came off as an idiot. He took an extraordinary amount of over the top risk that at least to me would have added up to complete disaster. It wasn't due to tactical genius or intelligence that gave humanity victory, but a continuous string of undeserved good luck that kept bailing Riggs out. You can only get lucky so many times....

    "Good story imaginative"

    If you are into the series, then you won't be disappointed. It has new twists and turns that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Didn't love how it ends with Crow but read it (listen to it) and decide.
    The reading is very good. Definitely worth the money.
