Publisher's Summary

The Hundred Worlds have withstood invasion by the relentless Hok for decades. The human worlds are strong, but the Hok have the resources of a thousand planets behind them, and their fleets attack in endless waves.

The long war has transformed the Hundred Worlds into heavily fortified star systems. Their economies are geared for military output, and they raise specialized soldiers to save our species. Assault Captain Derek Straker is one such man among many. Genetically sculpted to drive a mech-suit as if he wears a second skin, he must find a path to victory. It's a battle in which he'll never admit defeat, but not even Straker knows the dark truth behind this titanic struggle. With Lieutenant Carla Engels piloting, Starship Liberator explores enemy territory in search of answers.

    "same old story"

    Larson keeps writing the same story and just calling it different names. it was fun the first few times, but it's getting old. Can we get some new original material?

    Story
    "A refreshing new take at a Star Force anew"

    Excellent writing by both B. V. Larson and David VanDyke as well as Mark Boyett's continued distinctive and enjoyable narration.

    This first of a series is much like Star Force in some ways but very much different in so many others that it came off as a familiar tale with a complete set of characters and set of circumstances involved in the telling of the story, much like, say, The Odyssey vs. Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, both similar yet quite different and yet, both wonderfully entertaining.

    A riddle if I might.

    Q. What would you get if you transmuted a pretentious, arrogant alien lobster and an alien AI Marvin?
    A.Saxby, maybe?

    I did note a couple of problems with this book, though. One, while Mark Boyett's narration was excellent, there tended to be long pauses between chapters; often leaving me to wonder if my audio player had stopped or turned off and two, Loco's continued insistence on highlighting the sexual double entendre connotation of speech around females was over-used and after the first couple of times came off a bit cringe-worthy rather than humorous. One refreshing difference in this telling was a more co-equal role between the primary male and female protagonists.

    All told, I'm looking forward to the next addition to the series.

    Story
    "Super author team fails"
    Would you try another book from B. V. Larson and David VanDyke and/or Mark Boyett?

    Thats a no brainer! They rock (usually)


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something not from this series!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    It was pretty boring! Not because nothing happens, but because there is no reason to care about the outcome.


    Any additional comments?

    The book dives direct into action and just keeps going. Action is fun but only when you care who dies and who lives. The book literally begins with NO character development and throughout the book there is almost none to be found. The familiar voice of Mark Boyett does help as does his professional reading, but nowhere near enough to compensate for the lack of content.

    Was this book an experiment? Did they want to see who little character development you can possibly get away with? I was beginning to think these two writers were infallible, a sure thing, but I guess they are just human.

    Final word: DONT BUY!

    "Awesome!"

    I am partial to this kind of story but I feel they have done a amazing job with the storyline​progression. it really captures the imagination. You feel connected to each character and have love and sometimes annoyance with them just like you would with someone you know in real life.

    "Bad performance of a good story"

    Come on Audible, get a woman to do women's voices. It wasn't the only weak part of this narration but almost makes me want to quit buying these books. Other parts made me gag at how poorly it was verbally acted out. The story wasn't great at times either but did leave me wanting wanting more.

    Story
    "A new beginning"
    What did you love best about Starship Liberator?

    It was the start of a new set of books. Moderately paced but progressing good.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Ruxens (sp?). I love the interjection of their humor into the story. Way to go. Keep it up.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    He always gives an excellent performance. Smooth, natural and character voice diversity.


    Any additional comments?

    Anxiously awiting the next book.

    "Entertaining Book"

    No complaints other than too long pauses between chapters. Several times I had to check my phone to see if it was on.

    "Better than expected highly recommend"

    This book was surprisingly good. I was thinking this would be a Nother space battle epic. But turned out to be something much different.
