Publisher's Summary

Earth builds her first war fleet!
The greatest warships ever constructed in known space rise up one by one, soon dominating our skies. They strike fear into the hearts of every citizen and rebel colonist alike. Captain William Sparhawk, the very man who convinced the secretive Council to build this terrifying fleet, now has doubts about the project. What is their exact mission? How could anyone have built these huge ships so quickly? And, most puzzling of all, what's happening out at the isolated laboratory complex on Phobos, Mars' lopsided moon?
Learn the stunning truth in Star Carrier, the final book of the Lost Colonies Trilogy.

Super ending rather than bogging down!

This great ending mixes themes we've read in several other places. There's New World Order, mind implants, the Borg, rogue robots, one-track-mind Amazons, cloning, euthanasia, genetically -designed children, mutiny, and shifty people! Sparhawk remains an honorable man through it all. All standard for BV Larson.

Edoardo Ballerini give Sparhawk his proper upper-class perfect poise and pronunciation, while also voicing his grand-dame Aunt, political father, the Betas, the Stroge, and everyone in between.

Well done all around.

B. V. Delivers yet again!

Bottom line: If you enjoy science fiction and space you may really like this trilogy and this book.

I was thrilled when this was released as when I finished book 2, I was impatient for the story to continue. I went as far as to contact Audible customer service to ask about it's availability. B. V. is among a small group of my very favorite authors and this story from beginning to possible ending is in my opinion very good... The way this book ends, it seems to take the word trilogy seriously, however, there certainly is a place for the story to continue so perhaps we'll see.

A Short Series

Star Carrier, the final book in the Lost Colonies series from B V Larson is of the same general standard as the previous two stories in the trilogy. As mentioned before in my reviews of those books, the Lost Colonies series appears to cater for what I consider a younger target audience, lacking the gritty edge of Larsson's other major series like the Star Force and Undying Mercenaries sagas. This is not necessarily a bad thing as I feel it's the mark of a good author when they can alter the style and content of their stories to appeal to a wider audience. Star Carrier is consistent in this regard to the previous books in the series and although lacking the sophistication of his other stories is still a worthwhile read.

The sense I got was that Larson perhaps ran out of ideas and ended this series at just 3 books. Given it's a lost colonies theme, there would seem to me plenty of scope for more stories but I feel Larson experimented with a "lighter" type of science fiction only to discover the idea had ran out of steam. Larson excels at the darker more visceral and alien aspects and having to tone down these themes may have proved too limiting for him.

Star Carrier is nonetheless an entertaining read on the whole and Ballerini's narration was excellent and totally consistent with that of the previous two parts to this trilogy. Given the way the book concluded, it does appear to me that Larson has closed the door on any more in this series.

An entertaining and lightweight series but one worth a read when you wish to tackle something more digestible than some of the much heavier fare out there in the science fiction genre.
