In this hard hitting installment, Riggs has his back against the wall when the Mechanoids return to earth with a vengence. A new series of tricks hidden up their mechanical sleeves, including a massive new warship, rocks Star Force back on its heels.

Assassins, Mechanoids, Marvin, a fractious Admiral Crow with his own agenda and a host of other problems including earth governments, his upgraded girlfriend and a reluctant Fleet, dog Riggs' heels every step of the way as he attempts to save the planet earth from another attempt to enslave or annihilate humanity.

To my mind most similar to Extinction, the second book of this series, Conquest doesn't let up for a minute. Colonel Riggs is unwilling to give an inch when the Mechanoids are only interested in taking a mile and attacking with overwhelming force.

I recommend this book as another sterling addition to the Star Force Universe.

I've read the previous 3 books in this series as well. Let me say they are very entertaining and hard to put down. But the problem with them is two-fold:

1. No character development

The books move way too fast, you are left wishing they would slow down a little bit and Larson would more fully develop the background story as to the other aliens, the mysteries of the universe he setup, the military strategy, the political issues, etc. That being said, this is a minor problem compared to the love story.

2. The girlfriend damn near makes the books unreadable

Without the underlying love story between Kyle Riggs and Sandra, the books are already stretching (but not quite reaching) semi-ridiculous. Thanks to the action and plot weaves and the uniqueness of the universe that Larson creates, he makes up for these surface-level deficits in a big way.

That being said, Sandra nearly ruins the books completely. In the first place, she is way too involved in every aspect of the story. No one would buy a military commander bringing his girlfriend everywhere with him in the middle of a war. Even worse, the unprofessionalism of it all is just snickered and waved off by all of the characters around them, even the inner circle (even though Larson makes them out to be strict no non-sense pros in every other way). Worse than that, Riggs even comments that he shouldn't keep bringing her everywhere, but that is followed by another adventure in which she is literally on his tail and inserting herself into everything he does with his approval.

Though I could give many examples from the first four books, reading chapter 22 of this particular book was the absolute height of folly.

I enjoyed the first three books and would recommend them. This installment had everything and more. The Jack of all trades hero, aliens, robots, an omnipresent superwoman, horrific villains, desperate battles and space marines fighting a mile under the ocean. As I dove into the Sea Story episode my disbeliever meter finally pegged out and I was compelled into a reality check. This yarn had crossed the line from Science Fiction and had become a Fairy Tale. Fortunately I was able to use time travel and fly dozens of pages into the future where I continued on. Until now I have enjoyed this series. Hopefully this will continue on and without a "Once upon a time".

The quality seems to degrade with each new book. I really like the concept, and story, but this book was the first of the series that really made me question my decision to read furher. The melodrama between Riggs, Sandra, and Sarin was just ridiculous after a while. The decision Riggs made about exploring his relationship with Sarin while Sandra lay in a coma shortly after she was "repaired" seemed out of character and plain dumb. Is Larsen trying to play on some juvenile fantasy he believes his readers to have about several sexy women desiring them at the same time? I mean, Riggs frequently expresses disgust over the way Crow treats the women around him. Yet he's no better, when it comes down to it. Larsen, I thought you were trying to make us *sympathetic* to Riggs' plight! Riggs' reaction to what he discovered about Barrera was also ridiculous. As was Barrera's monologue. Enough with the plot points--the book is in serious need of editing. The proofreading mistakes alone in the last third of the book got to be really distracting. Frequent misspellings, punctuation mistakes, and sometimes the entirely wrong word slips by. I know the other reviews left here are from die hard fans who might be unduly prejudiced in favor of the book. Please note my star rating is partly due to my desire to balance things out, but also partly to draw the attention of the author--who has the ability to address the concerns I addressed and make the appropriate edits (if he wishes).

Okay, I liked book one and two, I admit it. But Colonel Riggs is beginning to annoy me. He's just too much of a Mary Sue. Not only can he design spaceships, outprogram the macro, he's a super commando, super tactician, and the nations of the world have to kowtow to him to get things done. I liked it better when he was a programming nerd in a single ship... I just don't buy that this man has all these amazing skills even enhanced. Worse still... The female characters... Sorry, but Sandra has gotten out of control. Not only is she physically abusive, she is super-woman and is now his bodyguard? She is a caricature. I groaned, when Riggs was pleased this already perfect too-good-to-be-true girlfriend dropped 5 pounds due to gaining enhanced muscle. I sighed when Sandra hangs out on ledges in the pouring rain wearing a fedora and a raincoat like Edward Cullen. I think he'd be a touch more concerned his girlfriend had become dangerously co-dependant and now considers herself his bodyguard? Really? Can't he get a normal bodyguard? and shouldn't he encourage his supposed sweetie to get some outside interests? As a character, Sandra exists to serve Riggs. What about college? Her family? Friends... She is a young woman. Give her some outside interests. Not everyone should exist to be a utility for the protagonist.

Then there is Riggs himself. At first his mistakes were somewhat charming. Part of the real quality he has. But I think it is about time for Riggs to hire some experts to take care of the things he is out there doing... Surely seals might be better at underwater combat. Generals might be better deploying troops... Scientists might be better making armor.... Hackers might be better dealing with the macros. And yet, somehow, Kyle is like an army of 1.
