First off, let me explain that I have listened to about 10 Audible Audiobooks, yet this is my first review of one of them. Actually, I found the Star Force series by mistake when trying to search for the sequel to one of the audiobooks that I had read in the past.
Well, I am delighted to have found the Star Force series, and although they are all overwhelmingly addictive, I must say that this one is my favorite in the series. Are there drawbacks, yes, but I won't bore you with the details, I always hate when reviewers give you spoilers, just tell me if you like the book or not! Besides, the drawbacks are more like very old, highly abused speedbumps, they only slow you down if you let them.
The storyline gets deeper and deeper, and I hate to be cliche, but the plot thickens. And I mean, it's thicker than the nose cone of a Macro cruise ship! Crowe has been busy in Riggs' absence. Earth has better defenses now, but the Macro's are back with a vengeance! The author uses more humor in this latest part of the series as well. He seems to know exactly when to innoculate the reader with an oddball joke that no one else in the world would appreciate except a die hard Star Force Marine, or a Star Force audiobook listener.
Everyone who survived the recent inter-stellar campaign has developed as a character significantly. The action is seemingly non-stop, even when there aren't any lasers firing. Don't even think twice about it, hit the "Add to Cart" button asap. If you liked all of the other books up until now, you will love this one.
And if you loved all of the other books up until the release of Conquest, well, need I say more.

Good listen! Story picks up where book three left off. B. V. Larson’s Star Force series is very similar to my favorite Military Sci-Fi author John Ringo and is certainly a must read for Military Sci-Fi fans. The entire book is written in the first person and gets a little old at times. Conquest also compresses a very large scale battle into a relatively short book, leaving very little for additional story or character development. Although constant action is what Military Sci-Fi readers are looking for, and Conquest provides plenty.

after reading reviews I wasn't expecting much but it kept my interest going and didn't disappoint
Here's hoping series will pick up from this low point.
book 1 was interesting... rest have relied on dull and frustration character interaction that seem to serve as filler rather than story progression.
not saying you shouldn't give it a go..just saying it's not my cuppa.
Great narrator and great action. very imaginative military Sci Fi. my only criticism is that its sometimes a little repetitive on some details...but that would help people that are not reading it in order or haven't listened to previous ones. kyles girlfriend is a scary super powered chick
