Book Description

Kyle Riggs has been away from Earth for a long time…but that’s about to change.

In STORM ASSAULT, the eighth book of the Star Force Series, the story moves in a new direction. Massive fleets are built by both Star Force and the Imperials—but there is a third player in the game: the Blues.

A three-way battle for the known star systems breaks out, with the fates of many worlds and species hanging in the balance. Riggs realizes he must destroy his enemies before they destroy him. Seeking justice and revenge, he gathers his strength and ventures out on a mission of conquest from the Eden System.

Humanity must fight to survive, and Riggs is the right man for the job.

STORM ASSAULT is a military science fiction novel by bestselling author B. V. Larson. To read the series in its entirety, start with SWARM, book #1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viva the Liberation! July 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had to happen. Revenge is a dish served cold and its very cold in space. Riggs is finally ready to face off against Crow and his Imperials... even if he isn't actually as ready as he'd hoped.

-Cyborgs

-Imperials

-Blue Tricks

-and a Giant Moon more powerful than the Battle Station

All this and more confront Kyle Riggs as he sloughs his way to Earth one teeth rattling battle at a time. But even if he manages to survive a duel to the death, will everything the Colonel's been working for turn to dust?

Discover what happens in Storm Assault, B.V. Laron's 8th foray into the Star Force universe. It looks like B.V.'s finally broken out of a three book rut and is back with this thunderous return to his hit sci-fi series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The magic is back... July 16, 2013

I read this book in one day and remembered why I loved the series so much in the first place.

In this book we get MAJOR movement on multiple stories, some new tech, and a satisfying conclusion to the story. I had been a little critical of the last book but this was as much fun to read as "Swarm" was.

This review is more about the current state of the Star Force Series in general than this particular book. When the series started out, the protagonist was basically a guy who had everything he cared about stripped from him and he was struggling to fight back as best he could. In other words, he was fairly likeable and entertaining.
Unfortunately, by the time of this book, the protagonist has degenerated into a very unlikeable person. He has become a micro-managing bully. He is the only one with the purity of vision and the sheer intestinal fortitude to save the day and conquer all.
Yet, he, himself, never learns. The same combat mistakes (e.g. having his Marines dig it only to have the enemy attack his position by tunneling up from below) are repeated over and over again. His weaponry is constantly being designed to fight the last war. His subordinates are all browbeaten and without backbone.
As for his military tactics, they essentially boil down to charging heedlessly into trouble and then trusting improvisation to save the day. There is no grand strategic plan to win the war or even a tactical one to win the day. Indeed, there does not seem to be any effort made to develop even rudimentary squad or unit combat cohesion among either his Marines or Navy. Mutual support, except of a very basic individual basis, seems to be non-existent.
The worst, however, is his total disregard for the lives of his subordinates. At the time of this book, he has at his disposal a severely limited pool of humans. In other words, humans are a limited, irreplaceable resource. Yet, he prolifically spends human life without any regard for the consequences. All he cares about is achieving his immediate aim. The thought never occurs to him that, if he runs out of people, the war is lost. He is not a leader to whom any sane person would wish to be subordinate.
All in all, it is truly hard to enjoy a book wherein the protagonist is someone who you really want to frag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book in the best series I've ever read August 2, 2013

Another great book in the best series I have ever read.

Riggs and Star Force finally return to Earth to deal with the imperial government set up by "Emperor" Crow. It was nice to see some originality in tactics by the imperial forces considering the amount of brain power they have to draw on. As well as new uses of the technology developed from the macros and nanoites.

I very much suggest checking out this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! July 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When the nano ships come, I hope B.V. Larson gets to take the tests. His brand of imagination is going to be needed to save the world. I remember starting this story with Swarm and thinking it wouldn't amount to much, but boy was I wrong. It has been one hell of a rollercoaster ride, and appearently it's not going to end with a wimper. The thing that grabs my imagination and attention so much is his impeccable character and situation development. How is Riggs going to pull the fat out of the fire? Who's going to rise to the occassion and do the impossible? And just as importantly, who or what is going to go wrong at the most inappropriate time? This saga in my opinion has everything, comedy to the point of laughing out loud, utter devastation and desperation at times, and the resoursefulness of an absolute hero doing what has to be done at just the right moment. The picture that he paints reads more like future history than fiction, and I have thoughly enjoyed every word he has written on the subject. If you like military fiction and over the top adventure, this book and series is for you. Give it a try. End of shameless plug transmission...

2.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic series written by the wrong author January 17, 2014
By Derp
Format:Kindle Edition
I've gone through all 8 books in a little under 2 weeks now. The idea behind the series is fantastic but the writer has some serious problems. As an example, he likes to re-explain really basic ideas at great lengths, multiple times per books. I got so tired of hearing about how the nanites affected his troops or his personal strength every 30 pages that I wanted to rip my eyes out. WE GET IT ALREADY MOVE ON. The other problem is that pretty much all the women in his books are completely 2 dimensional walking cliche's. Oh your girlfriend is a hot headed jealous Latina with no other personality? What creativity! Then there are the large continuity problems. For example at the end of book 7 Riggs gave permission to build "Super Carriers", essentially mobile battle stations many times the size of the current carriers with massive weaponry and much more fighters per carrier. Then at the beginning of book 8 its like he forgot what he wrote and had Riggs get mad that original spec (Miko's original non-crippled versions of the standard carrier) got built. Not even the super carriers. Errors like this are littered throughout the series. As I stated at the beginning the ideas behind the series are fantastic, I just wish they would have been written by a more capable writer. Less fluff, less continuity errors, less repetitive explanations of non-complex ideas.
