Publisher's Summary

Captain Kyle Roberts delivered one of the Castle Federation's few victories in the early days of the war. Even losing his ship in the process didn't prevent him from being elevated as the hero - the "Stellar Fox" - his country desperately needed. His status with the public demands a worthy command, and he finds himself on the bridge of the federation's latest supercarrier and headed to the front lines of the war.

But the navy sees his promotion as a public relations stunt. His subordinates and superiors alike question his lack of experience, and enemies at the highest level of his own government maneuver to destroy him. As the war heats up around him, the Commonwealth may not be the greatest threat to Kyle Roberts or Avalon.

Good story good characters

It's what you would expect out of this type of story. I enjoyed it. If another in the series is released. I will get it.

Good story but a little too much detail in some places .

While I truely enjoyed most of the story. The storyline is very creative and imaginative . The writer shows extreme skill . Overall, its very well written . However , I personally, don't want all the details of same-sex relationships. It comes across with enough detail that I take it almost as though ,"someone is trying to shove things at me, that I don't have any desire to know in so much detail . It is enough to cause me to steer clear of future publications from this writer .

Great series!

The Castle Federation series are good books and this continues in that vein. I can't wait for the next installment.

Too Much.

The author continues to detract from the story by showcasing people's sexual orientation / preferences. For goodness sake just write some nice sci-fi. He is actually good at that.

Just a few issues

Would you listen to Stellar Fox again? Why?

No, I rarely if ever listen to a book twice.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stellar Fox?

Robert's confrontation with the Lord Captain in the Avalon's conference room.

Which scene was your favorite?

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

If I had that kind of time, yes.

Any additional comments?

I love the story. I like the political intrigue and battle tactics. Two little things bug me:

1) I am getting a little annoyed with everyone but the hero apparently being either a lesbian/homosexual/bisexual/hypersexual. We have the slut navigator, lesbian pilot and her nurse lover, bisexual Admiral, and mention of a flaming homosexual ship captain just to name a few. I guess the author is trying to make the 28th century seem progressive and inclusive, but all he's done is muddy up the story line.

2) Every scene change is announced with the location, date, and the "Earth Standard Meridian Date Time" I'm sure when the book is read in print that is a minor thing that can b e absorbed in a glance. In the audio version, it's getting on my nerves. But that is just me.

All in all though the book is worth the listen and I look forward to continuing the series.

Name Dropping

I don't no whether to deplore or adore the author's single use of a Planet Name originally introduced by Edgar Rice Burroughs, that of Barsoom , Mars in that author's John Carter serucds. I think I am sure the author of Stellar Fox was deliberate here. There were some grammatical usage that would only be perceived one of my almost advanced age and education.

That being said, the story was great. The characters extremely likable and only hard to track because of the slowing of an aging biological hard drive.

Those who can do. Those who cannot , may write. Those whose cannot write, become critics. So I am acutely aware of where I an on this ladder.

I do recommend this nbook, this series ,"Terran Privateer ", another of the author's books and I am proceeding to read the next book in the series.

I'm naïve political novel

This is a naïve political novel with the cliché storyline in a predictable ending. It would be nice to have a storyline that is a true science fiction novel.

obvious plot twist is obvious

really brought down the story with the reader knowing from the beginning what was going to happen only to watch everyone stumble along unaware
