In Battle Station, Kyle Riggs faces new challenges, new alien fleets, and learns the secrets behind the war he has been fighting for years. In the fifth book of the Star Force Series, the Eden system is in humanity's grasp, but can they keep it? Star Force is weak after a long war, and many yearn to go home. Knowing the machines will return with a new armada eventually, Riggs seeks a more permanent solution. Along the way, worlds are won and lost, millions perish, and great truths are revealed.

Part 1 of a fun series

Any additional comments?

I like this series it is fun to listen to and the story line is very unique. I have not read (or listened to) a space series with this type of story line. I would recomemmend this series to anyone who like space storys.

Still good, and branching out. Best yet.

What did you love best about Battle Station?

His use of characters and tech. He is still willing to present a heroic hero, rather than a part-time villain hero.

What did you like best about this story?

The fact that it keeps building in imaginative ways. It also remains true to the series.

What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I read well, so not much. That being said, he did a superlative job with both tone and mood. Very well read. I think the better compliment is that I lost nothing by listening to it rather than reading it.

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

I can't imagine having that much time, or indolence for that matter.

Any additional comments?

This was fun. Some insightful glimpses into human nature, but just plain fun. It isn't a life-changer, unless a distracting adventure is what you happen to need at the time. It is uplifting and well defined, in a time when we need both.

Very Good Indeed

What did you like best about Battle Station? What did you like least?

Excellent continuation of the story. Some inconsistancies and repeated behavior by the characters. One would think that trusting instincts would grow on a person instead of having the same respons as in the first book.

Another Great book in the Star Force Series

What made the experience of listening to Battle Station the most enjoyable?

Again Larson creates a book that makes me take a few extra laps around the block so I dont have to get out of the car and stop listening to the book. I hope there is a sixth book to this series soon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Battle Station?

The Marcros adapting caught me by supprise.

Any additional comments?

is you haven't read this conquest yet, I would suggest starting with Swarm and reading the whole series. While you can read the books out of order, it is much better in order.

A great wrap-up

Although Earth will end up without him, the future for the people of Earth are much safer because of a computer nerd. Great story and I'm looking forward to more of B.V. Larsons future books. These were hard to put down!

Series gets bettter and better

What did you love best about Battle Station?

The evolution of the technology is logical and thought provoking.

What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

Very good performance.

Any additional comments?

The book has explored human enhancement physically, but has not explored mental enhancement like in "Wired/Amped". This, to me seem like a big and obvious hole in the logical extension of human capabilities through technology.

Another book is needed to properly end the series.

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

Yes.

Would you ever listen to anything by B. V. Larson again?

Yes.

Which scene was your favorite?

I found the character "Marvin" to be fascinating and any scene the robot instantly got my attention.

Do you think Battle Station needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes. Book 5 felt compressed.

Glad Riggs' girlfriend stayed mostly out of the story. Her character was annoying. Great series though.
