Publisher's Summary

Earth's Star Force Marines invade an alien world!

In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission - one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

Extinction is the story of Earth's entry into an interstellar war between living creatures and machines. And to buy the peace, we've signed up with the machines.

Battle stations! Listen to another Star Force novel.

Worthwhile sequel

This series begins to pick up speed at the first off-planet mission of Star Force. Don't expect much in way of deeper understanding, just enjoy the wild ride.

The star force saga boldly goes

Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

That is a certain. In fact I am planning to listen to the whole series soon enough, from first book to the last (Dead sun).

What did you like best about this story?

It remains true to the first person story perspective. It keeps you attached to the story while making sure you do not lose track of what is happening. You feel like your the protagonist in a story that is going its way and the only way to go is with it. And you will go with it to the end.

Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

That is difficult to say, since Mark Boyett does a great job in is voice performance. He gives each character in the story a unique voice, allowing you to recognize each character exactly in the story. His ability to voice the emotions of all the characters in the story is also a very big plus. This makes the story much more immersive.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several, but if you really love the first book, you would know that it would not be right to spoil this wonderful saga.

Any additional comments?

Anyone who loves the first book, will love this story for certain.

Surprisingly good

I'm not a huge fan of military sci-fi, but this one has some pretty nice twists on the standard pattern. For the most part the characters are likeable and the plot is interesting.

Good Sequel

Would you listen to Extinction again? Why?

Definitely. The story is action packed and exciting. The second half is much more interesting that the first which is all building action to the combat.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Extinction?

As soon as they join the Macros the book becomes impossible to put down.

Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

KYLE RIGGS, super professor!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Fast paced and gritty.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you like old school action where the main character kicks butt and gets the girl, this is probably a good series for you. If you're looking for complex characters, dialogue, or scientific theory, you might want to save your credit.

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

Yes.

Any additional comments?

If "Swarm: Star Force, Book 1" picked you up and wouldn't put you down, "Extinction: Star Force, Book 2" will inject you with Nanos. V.B. Larson does a great job of creating a world where action is king, and one suicidal man is just crazy enough to try filling the leading role. This is a fast paced, fun read that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's sprinkled with science, space, and tech, but keeps things flowing.
