I don't normally go for the shoot-em up sci-fi genre - but the pure fun factor of the Star Force series thus far has me hooked. Extinction doesn't pretend to be anything more than 'n fast paced popcorn sci-fi, yet it still explores some interesting premises, and leaves you curious about other aspects of the odd interstellar war that drives the story. It's a worthy follow up to Swarm. If you liked Swarm, you'll like Extinction.

If you need a comparison to something else, I'd say Extinction feels a bit like Heinlein's Starship Troopers, mixed in with a bit of Poul Anderson's The High Crusade. (Yes - it's an old school sci-fi feel, with a thoroughly modern take.)

This the 2nd book has more of a 50's pulp fiction feel to it. Clipped, too clever Sam Spade dialog throughout the book. It is a bit wearing after a while. Bogart is the only one to perfect this and it took black and white to complete the effect. Story ideas from or like Stargate, but not a ripoff or a redo. The use of nano was good but nothing new or really cool.

Characters are shallow. The female lead bounces into the room to kiss or slap the protagonist several times. And of course she is hot with long tanned legs. This is fine but she is now a love toy not a person. Depth is needed on all the characters.

Enjoyable light, and I stress the light, read at a good price. I would have really loved this when I was 13. And that describes the book best for me.

I describe it as pulp fiction and that is no insult, this is play reading and as important as the great works in their own way. Just wish it was a bit deeper.

If you enjoyed Swarm then no doubt you will enjoy this too. Plenty of action, an interesting story line, a fallible hero. For 2.99 and the fact that the author has not tried to make his story into something it's not, I give it 5 stars. If you're looking for something mindbogglingly complex then this is not it. If you just want a fun book and an enjoyable evening then Extinction will more than provide.

My concerns from the last book were all answered in a resounding fasion. Leaving me with a few concerns going forward such as do the Mechanoids really ever intend to send the metric tons of earth forces back to earth after just one campaign.

But let me tell you this was a great read and I highly recommend it to anyone who even remotely enjoyed the first book. Also my concerns with ethe start of the first book was not even a consideration with this book. This one started with a bang that continued on the whole book.

Let me say that given the price, I was entertained and will likely purchase the next one in this series. However, as stated in some of the other 3-star reviews, there is zero character development going on here, and basically nothing occurs plot-wise that is outside the protagonists first-person perspective. This is basically a faster and shallower sci-fi version of a James Patterson novel. I really hope to see this author develop past these books, and eventually start weaving together at least 2 or 3 sub-plots, as I do enjoy the style and sense of humor. There's many authors I read that are overly verbose and I wish would just shut up and move on with the story...Larson is one of the few I find myself wishing would slow down a bit, add some character development to the supporting cast, and some story depth outside the protagonists single-track bulldozer ride to the finish line.

Again, the price made this a quick, fun read...but the unrealized potential this author has left me feeling rather empty before the final page. I am continuing in the Amber Magic series and can see that Larson has some difficulty keeping a handful of characters interacting in a manor that contiues to add depth while being believable and consistant, but I really think the potential is there. I hope to see a Lason novel someday that took 1-2 years to write, and leaves me happy paying $7 for.

I am hooked and the only disappointment was when it ended and I wanted more! This is fast paced and very hard to put down. It would make an excellent action movie. The first book had more questions and suspense. This book was more about survival and war. I like the questions it brings to my mind....who are the Macros and how will they be stopped? Is the enemy of your enemy really your friend? The Starforce Marines along with the main character are effectively being cast as a mercenary army sent to destroy another species and it is understandable because it was that or we die... I love love love this book and I'm hoping more come out soon. I'm giving it one less star than the first book because I loved the character building, suspense and curiousity Swarm gave me. This was mostly action, which is fun, but I'm hoping this is building to another book more similar Swarm.

Three stars is just right for this quick, superficial read. You'll enjoy this sequel a bit less than the first book, Swarm. Very "Starship Troopers" meets "Stargate". I have this nagging suspicion that $5 is a dollar too much for this book.

I will continue the series because you just 'have to know what's going to happen next'. The only critizism I have is that sometimes things get too drawn out, the author becomes too verbose. I can skip over a lot of text and not really miss much. It is entertaining but not something you want to read cover to cover in one or two sittings. I like the way he creates technology without "technology speak".
