An interesting military Sci Fi

This is book 2 in the series and you need to have read book 1 to understand what is going on in this book. Looks like a series you MUST Read in order. Sgt Stark is now in the leader of the military on the moon after the mutiny. In this book he must bring control and motivation to the military and improve the relationship with the civilians in the moon colony. It is interesting to watch how Stark gains leadership of large groups and understands the politic in the negotiation with all the parties on earth, i.e. the corporation, the military and the government. There is military action both army and naval as well as suspense and a hunt for a spy. Great book in the tradition of the Lost Fleet. Eric Michael Summerer does a good job with the narration.

Starks Best Yet

If you could sum up Stark's Command in three words, what would they be?

Fan Smegging Tastic. Just like Jack Campbell's other work, Starks Command doesn't fail to disappoint. The intriguing story line and colourful cast of characters helps brings Starks universe to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

By a far margin, Stark is by far the best character. His ability to command his troops while keeping a cool head on the moon.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favourite scene is when Stark and his army are attacked by infiltrators.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are a few parts of this book that made me laugh out loud.

picked up 4 different times to get through.

this one is really slow going, didnt start picking up towards the end. didnt even want to finish this one but forced my way through. not even sure if the next book is worth picking up. Gone through Jack Campells other books and loved them so this one is a let down.

Shallow characters make it hard to buy into the story. Repeatedly highlights characters weakness without seemingly to learn.

Excellent follow up. Great Civics lesson

if you don't value your freedom after this book, you are hopeless. This book really demonstrates the path we are inching down, where the military is a separate elite vs the civilians. Reminds me to vote for my freedom, not for my freebies.

Awesome sequel :)

Loved it. Well written. Great story. Great characters to love & hate. Great narrator. Author is a master storyteller. He knows how to keep your interest with the Straightforward upright hero who is courageous, strong, confident & yet humble. Commander Ethan Stark is a great character who is guided by a desire to do what is right. He's surrounded by supportive friends who believe in him & a loyal band of followers. He is continually underestimated by his enemies who only follow their own selfish interests in profit, power & success. Great sequel in an awesome series.

Solid start to Jack Cambells career.

I love John G Hemry. Lost fleet, pillars of reality are both awesome. These books are his early work. It's clear he matured as an author. His later stuff if better but these books are still worth a quick "read".

The story improves

What did you love best about Stark's Command?

This is a great improvement on the first book in the series. The story is better rounded and less corrosive that the first. A good listen ...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stark's Command?

Spoiler alert. Stark is more human like and less of a demi-god in this book - this is seen in the way he handles the death of friends and civilians ...
