Publisher's Summary

The sequel to The Rookie, The Starter is a star-spanning coming-of-age space opera combined with the gritty world of organized crime, all set against a backdrop of a far-future professional football league. Nineteen-year-old second-year quarterback Quentin Barnes has overcome racism and unified his team. He led the Ionath Krakens to a lower-tier championship, a championship that earned them promotion into the meat grinder known as "Tier One."
Now, Quentin and his teammates have to compete against the greatest football teams ever assembled, and do far more than just survive each game. As he rebuilds the team in his own image, Quentin's true quest for a Tier One championship begins.

I have been the commissioner of a fantasy football league since 1992. I have been a Kansas City Chiefs fan, since the Hank Stram days. My wife is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. We watch Thursday, all day Sunday and Monday Night football. My point is, I am a huge football fan, but not to the point this book goes. If you are not into football, there is no way you will enjoy this. I loved book one, but I guess I love world building or universe building. That was all done in book one and nothing new is added to universe building in this book. To make up for that Sigler goes into detail on everything. He goes into detail on all the different species, what they look like, their reproduction practices, why they are they way they are and so forth. The football games are in excruciating detail. So and So blocked down, while so and so ran blank pattern. He block down because. The blank pattern is. I like football, but that is more than I want to hear. Sigler is a very inventive writer, but I think I am done with this series.
