Description

Kyle Riggs has been away from Earth for a long time.... What’s happening back home? In Empire, the sixth book of the Star Force Series, the story moves in a new direction.

Earth falls quiet, and the few reports coming out of the homeworld are increasingly strange. Isolated in the Eden system, Riggs realizes his enemies are forming an alliance against him. Crushed between two monstrous fleets, the last defenders of Star Force must forge their own alliance with the biotic aliens. But which alien race can Riggs truly trust?

EMPIRE OR COLONY?

The fortress is completely built, it's time to build ships, but
The Earth stopped communicating with Riggs
He has terrible personnel problems, he has only 300 men
And all his neighbors, damn Crustaceans, Blues and Crow are plotting against him,
The question is who friend and who is foe?

PS
Sometimes I think it is The Only Original Sci-Fi series

Next book is "Annihilation" and I hope it will available very soon!

This is one of the best sci fi series ever

Would you consider the audio edition of Empire to be better than the print version?

I like the audio version because I am on the move a lot at work and at home so it's easier for me to listen and it's particularly nice when you have a great performer with a good vioce. That's the case with this series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kyle Riggs. He is the everyman. He is not a super scientist or a super spy or a super warrior. He is just an ordinary guy thrown into a meat grinder of a situation and he roe to it.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really liked the space station. The thought of actually being out there.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In this series there were many emmorable moments. In this edition, I would have to say when he sent the trator general packing and destroyed his satalites.

Any additional comments?

I hope there are many more books to come for this series, aditionally I hope the Larson comes out with more scifi like this.

Have some escapist fun

If you could sum up Empire in three words, what would they be?

Action, fun action

What did you like best about this story?

It never slowed down.

Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

The little robot marvin is funny insightful and a great addition to the story.

Any additional comments?

I highly recomend that this whole series be listened to. It is escapist, action packed fun. It could make a great movie series.

Heart-pounding adventure

B V Larson's Star Force series has become the standard by which I judge all military sci-fi.

This is book 6 in the series and if you're not on board yet, YOU ARE REALLY MISSING OUT! I just finished and I'm sort of in an overwhelmed shocked state of being. SOOO much happened. There wasn't a dull moment. The writing is the best it's ever been and it just keeps getting better and better.

This one was epic as Kyle faces off against enemies both biotic and machine! It's supposed to be the biotics/us and all the other life forms they've discovered against these psycho macro ships right? Well, I can't and won't even tell you what Crowe has managed to do to Earth back home and all sorts other treachery and near fatal things that threatened Rigg's Pigs.

I laughed (mostly at Marvin's antics, and the Centaurs), I pumped my fists, I thought about human nature. I can't wait for more!

More Fun for Kyle Riggs of Star Force

Kyle Riggs, with the help of his trusted military officers, and Marvin, a sentient artificial life form, must battle impossible odds as Star Force faces enemies on all fronts.

At the same time that Star Force is fighting for its very life, Kyle Riggs attempts to delve into the relationships between the Blues, the Macros, and the Nanos. Unraveling that mystery could be the key to survival. However, things are looking bad back on Earth, where Crow has used his military might as leverage to gain enormous power.

These are fast, rollicking page-turners that keep you in suspense the whole way through. BV Larson's imagination does not fail him as we see new approaches to many brand new challenges.

The characters are immensely likeable and you root for each one along the way, even Marvin, who seems to always be a step ahead of Kyle Riggs, much to Star Force's benefit, and Kyle Rigg's chagrin. Once again Mark Boyett increases the enjoyment of these audiobooks with his talented portrayal of characters of all nations (and species).

Most recent in a great series - more to come?

This is the most recent in a series of six books. The whole series is packed with action and adventure. Our main hero takes on villains from all sides. Throw in a few characters you're not sure how to classify and you have a real roller coaster ride through space. Start with Swarm, the first book, and you'll be hooked.

More of the same

I thought to give this series one more try, I enjoyed the first few books. This one again picks right up where the previous ended. A self centered, arrogant commander with a psychotic girlfriend, and a robot that does whatever the hell it wants. None of them are likable, which makes the novel miserable. I’d just as soon they all get killed in the first chapter.

Plot is Formulaic and predictable

The Star Force series starts well enough with a very interesting alien abduction but you quickly see a formulaic pattern in the plotline of each book. By the time of the 6 or 7th book, it becomes highly predictable and somewhat boorish.

Some it was sooo annoying

The story is ok so far but honestly, some of the actions of the main characters are predictable and very annoying. This series is turning into a labour to finish as the story goes on.
