Publisher's Summary

Androids used to mingle among us, pretending to be human. Then an alien puppet-master altered their programming. Unknown to us, androids began leaving human society, burning their clothes and peeling off their skin to reveal the chrome-colored bodies underneath.

They gathered in a system were a star had exploded, blowing away the atmosphere of a Jupiter-like planet. The supernova had hurled heavy metals against the remaining core. The androids are mining supermetals that can turn ordinary ship weapons and shields into invincible armaments.

The altered programming includes human genocide, which will start with a murderous attack on Earth.

Luckily, Captain Maddox finds the enemy system. But during a space battle, something happens to hurl Victory thousands of light-years away into the Scutum-Centaurus Spiral Arm. The crippled starship will take years to reach home again. Long before that, Earth will be a radioactive ruin.

Now begins a desperate journey in hostile space that will stretch everyone as Maddox strains to reach the Lord High Admiral in time with knowledge about the coming android attack.

The Lost Supernova is the tenth book in the Lost Starship Series.

Another fun installment

Heppner is an excellent writer and this book is an outstanding entry into his Lost Starship series. Fun and exciting! I highly recommend it and the rest of the books in the series.

Nice to visit old friends!

Once again a fun and interesting listen. I like to go through and find a series I read in the past to see if there is another book and was quite happy to find another in this great series. Keep them coming!

Vaughn Heppner phoned this one in

I was very pleased when I first came across this series a few years ago. I usually couldn't wait till the next title came out. But this story has become a bit too convoluted and erratic..and the characters disappointingly basic and depleted of any interesting creativity. Narration was good..but even Mark Boyett couldn't save this one. Also..certain aspects of this book seems very similar to Ryk Brown's Aurora CV-01 of The Frontier Saga Chapter One. Usually..Vaughn Heppner is a great story teller and has a unique skill of creating immersive worlds and interesting characters. Though ..that is exactly what was lacking and why this episode in the series was hard to finish...and to think when this book was listed as unavailable.. I contacted Audible and requested this book be made available. Sadly..this was a waste of a credit.

Author is losing it with religious references

I've really enjoyed the series but the increase of religious references from one book to another is starting to ruin the story. Maddox is starting to turn into a religious zelot who is harder and harder to like as the main protagonist.

The writing is not bad but getting a little clumsy

I have followed this series all the way through and it has not been bad. One irritating device seems to have crept into the writing. This thing where the lead protagonist keeps telling people to shut up as he is too busy, just as they were about to tell him some critical piece of information, dragging the story out. That device has been very overused in the latest two books. It is a lazy overuse and pads out the story.

More of the same which is isn't so bad

This is turning into a soap opera series, which is why we keep buying them.
Quite adventurous, trying to find new enemies to take on in future books I'd say. Does end rather like half way into a new adventure seemingly, which jarred a bit.

So annoying, so good.

It’s so annoying having to wait. All I want is the next book. This series is a true masterpiece and I hate waiting for the next one! Recommended to anyone who likes sci fi, political intrigue, twists and turns, clever dialogue and well thought out characters.
