We also had to have something of value to trade, something that neighboring planets would pay their hard-earned credits to buy. As most of the local worlds were too civilized to have a proper army, the only valuable service Earth could provide came in the form of soldiers They hunt us.
They bomb our worlds for target practice. A star cluster in the constellation of Orion rotates once every thousand years.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day.

Larsen, accompanied by a great listening experience. Awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome they make it hard just to leave a simple review. I am shocked. Fans who've been following the series know that Krowe needs to be taken down and now it's about to happen. The Blues have been up to no good and show their hand before Kyle and crew can even make it out of the Eden system to return to earth. What new abomination has The Blues created this time. How can they possible return to Earth and overthrow Krowe? What kinds of traps has Krowe laid for them along the journey back?
What new creatures will we meet?
What woman will Kyle choose? What's Marvin going to get into? This is what we've all been waiting for and it isn't predictable and doesn't disappoint. I can't wait for more. I missed Sandra though. What a loss. As always Mark Boyett does a phenomenal job narrating. I really enjoy his voice for Marvin and The Blues. He really brings out the humor. Again Larson gives a decent science fiction story but holy crap this guy just cannot write female characters.
They're all crazy, whores or both. And the love scenes are so ham fisted and tacked on. He needs to stay away from these or get an editor to help him. Glad he avoided talking about women crossing their arms under their breasts who says that? This story was less repetitive than the previous book but he could've cut a good hour out of it for the same effect. He's improving but needs an editor to be good.
The book has great action if you can get past the childish attempt at military doctrine and basic character development. Mark Boyett yet again makes this book tolerable on Audible. The books have gone downhill as they progress. I know this book isn't the last one in the series. I have kindle unlimited and I have 12 already downloaded. The story was kind of monotonous for the last couple books but it gets interesting in this book.
If the author were to end it here it would be perfect. This seems very much to he the end. I wish I could tell everyone about BV Larson. It's amazing how Riggs can go from no hope to wow. Now his most challenging moment is waiting for him. What made the experience of listening to Storm Assault the most enjoyable? Really both story, never got old, the reading, great style, voices, constancy.
Never a dull moment. Great twists and turns, great character development. I found no mistakes and very, very few errors. I binged on the series, spending many days listening. If you like this genre, you will love, love, love these books! What other book might you compare Storm Assault to and why? Star Force series, by Ian Douglas. Which scene was your favorite? I like the spots with Quan, that guy was great, funny, my kind of guy. Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting? Any additional comments? Yes, you will not be disappointed!!!
What did you love best about Storm Assault? That crazy robot is the best. What did you like best about this story? Riggs finally kicked his enemies asses and one at least one side of the conflict.
