Book Description

The brutal war enters its final, annihilating phase in this, the sixth book of the Doom Star Series.

Guided by their inhuman logic, the cyborgs maneuver new planet-wreckers, Lurkers and secretive drone fleets into position. Waiting for the word are massed stealth-capsules, ready to fire cyborg drop-troops onto selected planets, moons and habitats. This time the assaults won’t stop until the cyborgs conquer the Solar System.

Highborn Grand Admiral Cassius has a deadly new weapon and a plan to defeat the terrible enemy. First, he must assassinate Supreme Commander James Hawthorne, his former ally. Then he will marshal the leaderless Homo sapiens under him, gaining unity of command with Highborn and Humans alike, hoping to lead them to victory with his strategic brilliance.

Meanwhile, Marten Kluge learns a secret that could change everything. Unfortunately, he is trapped on Earth, a pawn in a growing civil war.

STAR FORTRESS is the story of Solar Armageddon, written by bestselling author Vaughn Heppner.

5.0 out of 5 stars If this is the end it was a great one! April 19, 2012
By R.G.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read 90% or more of everything this author has published, it's hard to find something new to describe the masterful works he has come up with. The story of Marten & Company has truly lead readers like myself on an EPIC journey across the solar system and back. You truly feel a deep connection with them. Heppner has a knack for writing lead characters you can relate to. It's amazing to realize how much Marten has evolved. This latest book brings the story to it's climax and has Marten putting everything on the line one last time. Humanity truly rests in the balance and the price of survival is indeed hefty.

I'm of two minds on this being the last book. I think this has wrapped up the story of Marten Kluge pretty well. If there was another book, I would love to see the author take this story on a tangent and say look 25 years ahead, reflecting on how Marten's actions have changed or shaped things and introducing some new characters both good and bad into the existing universe. Whatever Mr. Heppner decides...I'll be reading it when it is published.

Best to start at book #1, but every book in this series is a journey, this last one is the pinnacle.

5.0 out of 5 stars An epic page turner... April 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The heroic final battle for mastery of the universe takes place in this long awaited sixth and final installment of the Doom Star series. Vaughn Heppner weaves yet another excellent story of action and intrigue set in the not so distant future. His realistic portrayl of human nature, interweaved with political conspiracy, military strategy, and intrpersonal conflict sets the stage for this rolller coaster action ride that will draw the reader all the way to the end. An excellent book; the only regret I had, was finishing.

One word....sad. Not because the book is badly written but because it is the end of the series and the last we see of Social Unity, The Highborn and the Cyborgs, and our beloved Martin Kluge. I must admit I was expecting this series to go on for a little longer but Vaughn does justice in this finale to the start of a series that has seen Martin go from rebel son to defacto ruler of the solar system. What I love about this series the most is that Vaughn takes common examples of human societal struggle and makes them real against the back drop of the not too distant future. If you haven't read any of the series yet, stop reading this review and go buy your introduction to one mans struggle to be free.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing ending to an otherwise great series June 14, 2012
By dmron
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I completely loved the first 5 books in this series. All 4 or 5 stars to me. But this one was a disappointment. This was mainly to do with the fact that it all felt very rushed. Like Mr Heppner said to himself, "there's only going to be one more book and no matter what shortcuts I have to take, it's ending here".

I can't tell you how many times he wrote "The days became weeks" in this book. In other words, skipping across huge amounts of time to get to the action. With stories that take place in space, yeah that's needed sometimes. But it felt like he was doing that every chapter, just to keep things moving along so he could get to the ending. Part of the joy of this series was the great amount of detail he went into in so many places, but there's barely any of that in this one.

He kills a very major character quite early in the book, and it felt like he did it just to get them out of the way so other things could proceed. What bothered me about it even more was how preposterous the whole thing seemed. One of the characters involved in this event, based on material from the last 5 books, they would never have put themselves there. They were way too smart and logical and cunning to do that to themselves. It really bothered me and gave me a sinking feeling that this was just the beginning... and it was.

So things happen and we finally get to the end and it's all a bit sudden, the stuff that needs to happen, happens, but based on where I was 10 pages before the ending, I did not expect to be done with a 6 book series 10 pages later. It could have used another couple chapters in there at the very least, or perhaps a prologue of some sort. The ending itself is a bit lame too...

This series got old by now and you lost your feeling for the characters by the time you get here plus it is just a little too much like a video game.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a Lame ending October 10, 2012
By Keef
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was totally engrossed in the Doom Star series and looked forward to reading book 6, Star Fortress. I was a little surprised and upset to see how quickly and easily the Author killed off some of the leading characters and the ending seemed to me to be quickly written and rather blunt. Everything was leading to an awesome climatic finish, then wham, bam, thank you man, it was all over. What happened, did the Author get bored with the series and just wanted to stop as fast as he possibly could? It's a shame, I will not be quite so eager to read one of his books or series again!!

Its amazing that you can still find great books like these for only a few dollars these days. The story's were fantastic, action packed, suspenseful, and each one had a great surprise ending. I buy tons of books each month and I strongly recommend that anyone read these. I'm trying to get my kids to read this book now!

More About the Author

You can visit Vaughn at

I was born in Canada and remember as a small boy crawling in my snow-fort. I closed my eyes, and when I tried to open them, they were frozen shut. I didn't panic, but wiped away the ice crystals, unglued my eyes and kept on building my tunnel. Those were great days! I moved to Central California before seventh grade and couldn't believe I lived in a land where oranges grew on trees and you could pick grapes from the vine.

I used to wonder what I wanted to do with my life, what kind of work specifically. I was miserable not knowing and bordering on desperate. Then one day a friend gave me his typewriter. I began working on a novel. A different person told me it was much easier on a computer, so I bought one and began getting up at 4:30 A.M. each morning before work, writing for three hours. My eyes were unglued once again as the pang of misery left my gut. I knew exactly what I wanted to do: write. So now that's what I do, I write, and write, and write, and I love it.
