Gains, the story told.

This short, but informative story fills in the gaps in Conquest. It needed to be told

Poor value no depth a crass exploit of true fans

Would you try another book from B.V. Larson and/or Mark Boyett?

Yes I have purchased and enjoyed all of the other Star Force Series. This very poor short story was just a way to exploit fans of the series after paying for the other 13 books I could hardly not buy this one.

Has Army of One turned you off from other books in this genre?

Not at all

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes the narrator was fine

What character would you cut from Army of One?

All of them

Any additional comments?

Dear BV Larson attaching this to a great series is wrong this book should be deleted.

Loved it!

This is my second B. V Larson book. I totally didn't want it to end. I'm sold on both the author and the narrator, Mark Boyett. I'll be purchasing and listening to many more of Larson's Star Force books.

Days of old SiFi

Years ago I subscribed to SiFi magazines' that had short stories. I remember some that were only a page long and occasionally some were a few pages. The attraction was that most had great plots. Today it seems that the authors shoot for many pages and it is rare that few can hold my attention. Army of one was just long enough to keep you interested and had a great plot. Way to go Larson.

Cut from the main storyline for a reason

After loving Star Force, I felt like I should be completionist. However, there is good reason why the author cut this plotline from the main story. It isn't very interesting, doesn't matter to the main plotline, and feels rather generic. Worse, it undermines some of the ambiguity and depth of the character it follows -- he was supposed to have a somewhat dark past that he is redeeming, not a generic noble trite tragic backstory.

Even if you liked Star Force, skip this one.

Army of one

Loved the storyline. The concept is great, I could have read a whole book about him. Only complaint being it was way too short. I guess he blended into the army that was formed, but, I lost him in the process. Actually think I shall read it again and see where he plays into the other books. Or, If he does!

Not worth the listen. Just adding a new book topic

I think the author realize he could have a new series by adding a nanotize assassin . This did not add anything to the original story line

Short, but worth the download

I almost passed on this due to it only being a few hours long. I'm glad I give it a shot; it provides a very interesting backstory for Hanes.

Great addition to the saga but overpriced

This is a great little novella addition to the Star Force saga but it's 2 hours long (the full length books are each approx 12 hours) and is priced the same. I hadn't spotted the length when I purchased so I'd encourage others to bear it in mind. That said the story offers a unique perspective on the events from book 4 and is performed well

Short and Sweet

It's an nice addition to the main story and it helps explain a few things, I just wish it wasn't so short and, in my opinion, more could have been told. Overall is good and I'd say a must listen to any Star Force fan

Gap filler

Army Of One fills in some of the gaps of the happenings back on earth and also is the missing part from book 4, A little side story on its own with an interesting twist,
