Publisher's Summary

Last voyage, Captain Maddox entered a distant star system with a Swarm fleet. The sheer numbers were staggering, a 100-1 advantage against all human spacecraft. If the highly aggressive, racist insects gained hyper-spatial tube technology - allowing them to cross 1,000 light-years in seconds - it would mean Armageddon for Earth.
Star Watch desperately needs something powerful to offset the annihilating Swarm numbers. As if on cue, Professor Ludendorff declares he has discovered the whereabouts of ancient Builder technology, a tech so potent it could defeat the Swarm.
Star Watch takes the bait, ordering Captain Maddox to find the lost planet holding the ancient technology.
Ludendorff has a plan involving androids to lure his arch rival - Methuselah Man Strand - to his doom.
The crew of Starship Victory knows nothing of this, and thus blindly enters a web of intrigue and danger. The captain will need the AI Galyan, Valerie, and Riker like never before. Humanity's hope against the coming Swarm holocaust rests on the outcome.
The Lost Planet is the sixth book in the Lost Starship series.

Downward Slope

I have very much enjoyed the series thus far, and Boyette continues to excel in this latest installment. The Lost Planet, however, loses some marks this time around. Where the previous books had grand scope and hidden intrigues, this one seemed only contrived as we witnessed - once again - Strand's uncanny ability to read the author's mind.

The Lost Planet also departs from the feeling of an epic space adventure as a large majority of Maddox's time is spent planetside employing gun barrel diplomacy. Although, it is nice to see Valerie finally get her chance to shine. Perhaps that was the author's intent.

The Lost Planet does entertain, for what it's worth. Maddox is his usual brusque, no-nonsense self. We meet a new alien species, and, like usual, things aren't all gumdrops and ice cream.

In the end, this book seems like a bridge. Simply there to connect two more important pieces. Wether that's the case can only be determined in the next release.

The Lost Planet

This was a good listen/read, Maddox and his crew continue to evolve. Can't wait until the next book for the battle against the sworn.

Exciting battles if rather quickly sorted out

A good listen and well narrated, the chacters are still a bit 2d, but you get used to it. As with previous books a need to go somewhere came out of nowhere, but provided a good narrative for many a tricky situation to get out of. It all got sorted out a bit quickly and tidily at the end though. Looking forward to the next and maybe last installment of this series as it doesn't look too good for the humans.

The series is back on track. This one was fresh and exciting with many new and interesting plot threads to stop the long term story line from get tired.

Now I have to wait for the next installment

I was waiting for this book and it did not disappoint. Mark Boyett is a pleasure to listen to and he has the characters worked out well. The story was good but had a couple of slow spots. Overall however I liked it.
