The Misfits are back together!

No Spoilers. This book seems like such a TEASEr (pun intended). I had been waiting for a sequel to Gun Meister and when I saw this, I didn't hesitate to purchase and finished it in 2 sessions (it is only 4 hours). While Gun Meister did have a lot of adult content, it seems like Noah kept all that on a much tighter leash. I'm fine with either option to be honest, but I think once he has a full length book, he'll fill it in with some more adult content. As always, soundbooth theater does an amazing job. If you've listened to Ernest Cline's Armada, this book is similar in regards to the space action. I was hoping this would satiate my desire for the sequel, but it left me wanting more.

great intro

First book of the new "game", and it's a good listen. SoundBooth did a great job, as always, and brought the characters to life. I can't wait for the next entry!

AHHHHHH!

I need so much more of this series, it's so addictive. I have to say that it is the best written and performed series I have ever heard.

Liked it a lot but less explicit than before

Definitely turned into a PG-13 version of Gunmeister but it was a good roll over with same characters and cast doing the voices. Noah does an excellent job transporting your inner eye into the story and making you feel as if it really could happen. The only thing that made it truly the best, was that it actually was how most of humanity would really be in a virtual world- expletive and perverted. Hope the next one turns back towards how it was in Gunmeister but had a blast listening to it!

Excellent entertainment value if a bit derivetive

First and foremost, this was an excellent enjoyable book. The preformance as usual was top notch, if you enjoyed gun meister you and also enjoy space combat you will most likely enjoy star nova. When I say it's derivetive I can't help but think of enders game repeatedly. However that's kind of hard not to do in this genre so it's forgivable. The sex is there but far from graphic so don't let that stop you if you are squeamish, it's more of a suggestion of sex. That said, it's probably not a book for kids, so all you teens will probably be buying it as soon as the word "sex" entered the review, jokes on you, it's not porn, should have kept reading. To sum up, yes it strongly reminds me of enders game but that's OK, it's a good book to be compared to. The preformance was excellent and I can't wait for book 1.

short but sweet

enjoyed it alot, great characters coming over from the previous book, very good performance as usual and everything was really enjoyable..

the pacing felt excellent, but I somehow still wish it was a tad longer, but I suppose there is just more srory to tell in future books.
