Publisher's Summary

Earth's Star Force Marines invade an alien world!
In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission - one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.
Extinction is the story of Earth's entry into an interstellar war between living creatures and machines. And to buy the peace, we've signed up with the machines.

The Kyle Rigs Show

Kyle Rigs is special. He's the sort of hero who knows better than everyone, about pretty much everything. If an officer gives an order, he'll countermand it. Sure hell do the same thing later, but he's Riggs. He's so smart that he's not only better than anyone else to run the new tech, he's better than all other people combined. These are the glaring and reoccurring things. Leave aside failing to remember little bits of science like inertia. That's okay, he's The Riggs and not bound by foolish things like planning, military disciple, or a rudimentary appreciation of self replicating factories. Thinking and behavior that could be excused in the surprise and crisis of the first book continue on a larger and more costly scale.

Much less than it could have been

This is the seconds book in the Larson's Star Force series. I liked the direction the first book took, I thought there were some interesting things the series could explore and decided to ignore the problems with the first book and see where the second book went. Well now I know, we went to lazyville. Lawson must have written this book in about a week. The plot is silly, the characters are flat and the science has left the building.

Very sad, this could have been a very interesting series. I think Larson has the ability to write a much better book. But for some reason he just seems to be cranking out these books like cheap romance novels. Maybe that is how a writer needs to pay the bills these days - Volume. I think there are about another 9 books in this series, but I am in no hurry to read the rest.

On the brighter side, Mark Boyett did a great job narrating the book!

Pretty poor stuff

This was a very disappointing novel, especially after the promise of the first in the series. I guess a lot of the problems I have with it is the outdated concept of AI employed by the author, which rather dates the story. The characters are all pretty unintelligent as well, with superficial motivations and shallow characters. Not recommended.

It was a good story, as good as the first. Less sophisticated and more action with a lot of violence. The one main problem is the lack of care showed for the marines dying on the battlefield. Overall it as a more action-packed with one main fight drawn out, yet still very entertaining.

action packed Sci Fi

fast paced griping and very imaginative Sci Fi points of view. Great to listen to and author that doesn't feel the need to fill his text with blasphemy and foul language
