Publisher's Summary

A new world, more aliens, and even more Mechs!

The Skaintz Imperium was eradicated from the backwater planet of Garm, but at great cost. The population of the world was decimated within weeks, and Garm will never be the same. At least humanity can breathe easily knowing that the mysterious aliens are all dead.... But are they? Using their natural form of communication, Skaintz radio signals did chirrup and click, however briefly. Transmissions in their ancient language now spread at the speed of light in a growing sphere, reaching farther from Garm every year. In the vast oceans of nothingness between the stars unknown things float. And they listen....

Mech 2 is the story of Neu Schweitz, a planet in a system 3.2 light years from Garm. It's a beautiful world of snow-topped mountains, green valleys and nearly a billion humans struggling with piracy and politics. Soon, however, they will be struggling for their very lives.

Such a cool story. A great way to start book 2.

BV doesn't wait to get you into the action like he did in the first book in the series. I really felt like this one started moving and then never stopped. Great continuation of the series. I have to say, so far, i have not been disappointed with one book BV has written.

Story was interesting - despite Mirron

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I think Mirron should contain his readings to the voice of automatons or non american accents. When reading with an accent, he sounds acceptable. When in an American accent, it is clipped and monotonous

How could the performance have been better?

see above

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story kept me from declining to get more of the series and tolerate Mirrons poor performance.

Good read.

I find the series ok. Worth the read. The first one was better. I'm hoping the next will be better still

The narrator is versatile but pronunciation is

I find the narrator fairly versatile not as good as some that I've listened to but pretty good unfortunately his pronunciation of many of the terms in the book leave much to be desired

I love that murderess

My favorite killer robot character to date. Plus there were just a lot of enjoyable little pieces of story apart from the main plot.

This can not be the same bv larson

This is awful compared with his other books I struggle to believe it is the same writer. Terrible and I couldn't get past the 4th chapter.... So disappointed

Again another great story - enjoy Larson so much. The narration on this book was so much better than the first
