Publisher's Summary

We defeated the invading death machines. But at a devastating cost, with smoldering radioactive craters on Mars, shattered moon-domes around Jupiter and floating junk where Saturn's satellite cities used to orbit.

We know more killing machines are coming and that the ultimate outcome seems hopeless. To win this war, we need more warships, more soldiers, and a way to take the fight to the enemy.

By analyzing a testy AI probe, Jon Hawkins discovers a secret: the whereabouts of a giant AI battle station, one protecting a factory planet 17.2 light-years from Earth.

Jon has to convince a defensive Premier Benz and the hostile Earth government to join him. A human flotilla has the lonely task of traveling through hyperspace to defeat the arrogant AIs in one of their own star systems.

The fate of the human race rests on the sacrifice and courage of Jon Hawkins and his friends.

A.I. Battle Station is the fourth book in the A.I. Series, a novel of military science fiction by best-selling author Vaughn Heppner. The series starts with book 1, A.I. Destroyer.

Lots of filler

This installment doesn’t really advance the story much. It does set up for another book and possibly generational character expansion.
Still I was entertained and look forward to where the story goes from here.

Plot Holes!

There have been several plot Holes/gaps and inconsistencies throughout this series and they continue in this book.

I do enjoy the series I just wish it was though out to give us a smoother read.

Great Series

Another good read in this series. Once again the main characters are put to the task, trying to out smart the AI unit that attacked the solar system. Bast Bombeck goes above and beyond in serving the cause. After a major battle around Mars, 2 more AI ships are captured and Hawkins and Benz decide to take the fight to the AIs. The story is fast paced like the rest of the series and leaves you wondering when the next book will be out.

still overly lengthy but the plot moves along

Little AI barnacles, a giant AI battle station, and more AI battle ships! Then there's mind reading, treachery, and alliance attempts. The characters are becoming well-rounded, and the story line is growing. It still takes a while to get through this, but again the end makes it worth it.

The narration is good.

It’s a great series!

Vaughn Heppner and Marc Vietor, it’s always a great combination! Mr Heppner does love his AI stories and I always enjoy reading them.

I look forward to the next!

A Great Adventure.

This has been a great series and one to follow on. I hope the author can continue. but it will take quite a few stories to see this series remain true to humanity. very well done and complimented by the quality of the narrator.

entertainment and battles

Not that deep but exciting and almost continuous action. A bit of a sudden loss of the bad ai and a few story near dead ends. Good narrator though also helps keep the chacters alive, even if they are a bit flat. The women in the story help, but tend to be little more than descripive attractions of their assets. Will certainly look forward to the continuing story, it's not bad at all.
