Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling Author Ian Douglas continues his Star Carrier saga as humanity unites against an ancient artificial consciousness powerful enough to exterminate every species it encounters

2425. The civil war between the United States of North America and the Pan-European Confederation is over. But before a new era of peace on Earth can begin, humankind must martial its interstellar forces as one fleet to engage in a war against an alien entity in Omega Centauri. Without provocation, it destroyed a Confederation science facility inhabited by 12,000 people, and it must be neutralized before it sets its sights on Earth.

Admiral Trevor "Sandy" Gray of the USNA star carrier America has his own mission. The enigmatic AI known as Konstantin has convinced him that humanity's only chance for survival is technology found in a distant star system. Now, Gray must disobey orders as well as locate and create a weapon capable of defeating a living sphere the size of a small planet.

Another Great Story!

If you could sum up Dark Mind in three words, what would they be?

A Great Listen!

What did you like best about this story?

It is a great continuation of the Star Carrier Series. Great plot, great characters. Left me wanting to hear the next one!

Have you listened to any of Nick Sullivan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Nick Sullivan always does a great job, very easy to listen to. A great story teller.

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

I have read and listened to all of Ian Douglas' books. I cannot put them down once I have started one. Just really great stories.

Another Homer by Ian Douglas!

A great blend of science fact with science fiction. Narrator kept pronouncing reaper as ripper, as in the Grim Reapers, Marine fighter squadron, which figured in every third chapter.

Good but slower than others

Was good, but slower and talked alot about the "white covenant" and the weird religious stuff. The action and tech talk was awesome as usual when it was there. Although I can always use more. Ending was awesome and can't wait for the next one!?

Good, but not as good.

I'm under the belief that you can't have an enthralling story every time because life just isn't that way.
I enjoyed the story and I believe it fit well with the rest, I just didn't capture and hold as well as the others.

Not As Good As the Other Books

This book was almost like listening to an astronomy and physics course with very little action for a STAR CARRIER series. As someone else mentioned, I agree that this is the weakest book in the series. I truly hope that the next book is more engaging.

Seemed to fall a bit short.

I have read the whole series, and this one just seem to be one of the weaker books in the series and wasn't as interesting to read. I hope the next installment is much better.

Real hands on sci fi.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Mind to be better than the print version?

Yes Sullivan is great and in my narrator top ten. Great writing to.

What did you like best about this story?

The whole story arch and attention to detail is a great sci fi concept realized.

Which character – as performed by Nick Sullivan – was your favourite?

He does the voices with excellence.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The light of humanity shines through the darkness of space.

Any additional comments?

Keep writing and I will keep reading and enjoying your work.
