Publisher's Summary

It finally happened. Commander Thrax Ti Ix created a hyper-spatial tube for the Swarm Imperium. Across thousands of light-years, a vast armada of warships is heading for Earth to burn the homeworld down to its bedrock as the Swarm begins its genocidal campaign against the human race.

No one - not the New Men, the Spacers, the Wahhabi Caliphate, or Star Watch - has faced such staggering odds. Alone or united, it makes no difference.

Captain Maddox has a last-ditch plan. He's returning to the null region of last voyage to grab the ancient Destroyers hidden there. But an immortal entity of evil cunning haunts the vessels. If it escapes its prison...Maddox will have made things infinitely worse.

This time, mankind needs a miracle.

The Lost Earth is the seventh book in the Lost Starship series.

Another great edition to the series

A great wrap up in the first three quarters but the finale was just abrupt and not satisfying at all. I’m sure there may be more but really. I just killed a billion people and whipped out two enemies all in 20 pages. But still a great series.

Great conclusion to an awesome series.

A great conclusion to an awesome story. while the author could go on I think ending it here is good enough.

Not as good as the prior books in the series

I’ve been reading the series since the first volume. All the books up to this one have been very engaging with very well developed characters. This book, however, was different and not in a good way. The main players were often acting out of character. So much so, that at times I thought this book was written by a different author. Very odd.

Ian Fleming

The series has proved to enjoyable, but each book seems to be more and more like another James Bond movie. The differences though are what keeps me reading. His characters evolve and have relationships with other characters and these relationships (if somewhat predictable) do evolve with the story. I'll continue to read this series as it continues to stir my own creative juices.

a good story but...

This story ,following the others in this series, was pretty good. The narrator was excellent in portraying the different characters as he has done so in previous books.

My only complaint is the ending. It seemed very rushed. I hope in the next book,if there is one, the ending will be better.

An entertaining listen

Mark Boyett didn't excellent job as always. The storyline was engaging though at times the plot seemed to trudge along. The author seemed to spend more than adequate time working through the thoughts of the characters, even when the thoughts seemed obvious to the listener. Also at times not crediting enough intelligence to the characters that the author created. Overall still an enjoyable listen. Will likely continue on with the series.

Fun except for nerd masterbation

She says’”I want to know what you taste like”
Narrator: “His muscles ripple like they are always on alert as he bench presses another 400 pounds.”

A bisexual chauvinist nerd romance novelist takes over to fill space every 10 minutes (you can almost see him touching himself as your listen). Also each novel regurgitates prior book info encompassing at least 15% of each book (like anyone would jump in the middle of this series). Otherwise a fun listen.

Good thing for the ‘skip forward 30 seconds’ button!

Good, if a little slow

A little slow getting into this one. Whether this has the staying power to go on much longer is another question.

Narration, as always with Mark Boyett, was very good and kep the book going.

Good, though physic and gods introduced

Good final battle and fine narration, though baddies not mentioned upto now appear. Physic powers, Ghosts and God bothering, not needed in the past six books now play a part in the story.

holy shit

As a fan of Matthew Rielly. This is awesome, Capt. Maddox is like Scarecrow meats Jack West and some Alex Hunter (Greig Beck). In space. Awesome. Cant wait for more
