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.
The Deposed King
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
