Présentation de l'éditeur

CONQUEST is the next chapter in the great interstellar war between all living creatures and the machines. Star Force must stop the machine invaders once again--but how?

In the fourth book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has freed Earth from the chains of the Macros--but at what cost? The Macros no longer trust him. He is a mad dog that must be put down--and all Star Force must be stamped out with him. The war expands in this story, and mankind is once again faced with annihilation.

CONQUEST is a military science fiction novel by bestselling author B. V. Larson.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Victory or Death! 16 décembre 2011
Par Joshua Wachter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In this hard hitting installment, Riggs has his back against the wall when the Mechanoids return to earth with a vengence. A new series of tricks hidden up their mechanical sleeves, including a massive new warship, rocks Star Force back on its heels.

Assassins, Mechanoids, Marvin, a fractious Admiral Crow with his own agenda and a host of other problems including earth governments, his upgraded girlfriend and a reluctant Fleet, dog Riggs' heels every step of the way as he attempts to save the planet earth from another attempt to enslave or annihilate humanity.

To my mind most similar to Extinction, the second book of this series, Conquest doesn't let up for a minute. Colonel Riggs is unwilling to give an inch when the Mechanoids are only interested in taking a mile and attacking with overwhelming force.

I recommend this book as another sterling addition to the Star Force Universe.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Star Force Series - Conquest: Science Fiction or Fairy Tale? 12 janvier 2012
Par Bill H - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I enjoyed the first three books and would recommend them. This installment had everything and more. The Jack of all trades hero, aliens, robots, an omnipresent superwoman, horrific villains, desperate battles and space marines fighting a mile under the ocean. As I dove into the Sea Story episode my disbeliever meter finally pegged out and I was compelled into a reality check. This yarn had crossed the line from Science Fiction and had become a Fairy Tale. Fortunately I was able to use time travel and fly dozens of pages into the future where I continued on. Until now I have enjoyed this series. Hopefully this will continue on and without a "Once upon a time".

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Artificial swarm intelligence, nanobots, alien invaders, space battles-combine these and you have a little taste of this series! 25 février 2012

I recommend reading "Conquest", and without hesitation give it a rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

The only caveat is that a reader new to the Star Force series should read each of the books, including "Conquest", IN the ORDER in which they were written, as follows: Star Force series book #1, "Swarm"; book #2, "Extinction"; book #3, "Rebellion"; and book #4, "Conquest".

Based on my purchase history Amazon recommended that I read the book "Swarm", which is the first book in B.V. Larson's Star Force series. I read it and thought it was awesome, and was totally hooked on the Star Force series; as soon as I finished that first book I immediately clicked to my Kindle's on-line search tool, found the Star Force Series book #2 and, due to the relatively effortless way of purchasing books from Amazon's online store, and the book's instantaneous download to my Kindle, no more than 45 seconds had passed from the time that I finished reading "Swarm" to when I eagerly began reading book #2, "Extinction". I repeated this pattern with each successive book in the series, and by Sunday night I had finished book #4, "Conquest".

An excellent characteristic of B.V. Larson's Star Force series is the strength of each new novel, with no letdown from one novel to the next. I first realized how awesome the Star Force series was in this respect after reading the first two books in the series, "Swarm" and "Extinction". I was really impressed and thoroughly enjoyed "Swarm" and was thrilled when the follow up, "Extinction", was every bit as good (including the cool technology and ideas associated with its uses, interwoven with a great story, engaging and interesting characters, etc.) However, I was convinced that there was no way the third book, "Rebellion", in the Star Force series could be anywhere near as good as the first two books.

Despite my assumption that there would be a significant drop in book #3's comparative quality, I still thought it would be well worth reading if only because of the exceptionally cool underlying story which was interwoven with the science of or relating to nano-technology, including the awesome and very interesting idea of an artificial swarm intelligence resulting in an extremely advanced global intelligence - artificial intelligence. This was a really cool idea that was new and really creative

In point of fact, I have not seen either of these ideas used as a fundamental component to an underlying storyline or plot (other than as just some tangential, quirky aside) outside of Michael Crichton's novel "Prey", published several years ago, and his excellent recently released novel "Micro" (novel actually finished by Richard Preston due to Michael Crichton's untimely death) and those were very different stories from B.V. Larson's Star Force series. In short, I was convinced that even if there was the letdown in book #3 of the Star Force series, that book would still be well worth reading considering the subject matter.

Contrary to a letdown, however, "Rebellion", book #3 in the Star Force series, was excellent. In fact, every one of the Star Force series books was excellent - no letdown or anything of the sort with any of the Star Force books - each one every bit as good as its predecessors; in fact, each book seamlessly furthers the story underlying the series and all of the books: the exceptionally cool science (and as of yet science-fiction) of nano-technology, its potential applications (which are seemingly endless) and the fascinating possibilities of having an artificial swarm intelligence manifesting as a highly advanced global artificial intelligence.

The swarm intelligence, and the skills needed to deal with such creations, makes this much more than another "the machines take over and are bent on destroying all of mankind..." type story. The story stays fresh, with new twists and technological applications of nano-technology, such that even with what seems like a resolution of sorts to the main conflict in a given book, the suspense and tension seem to grow with the next iteration. However he does it, B.V. Larson has, with this Star Force series, managed to create a wonderfully fun and exciting series.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very entertaining books, but... 30 octobre 2013
Par Christopher Bronson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've read the previous 3 books in this series as well. Let me say they are very entertaining and hard to put down. But the problem with them is two-fold:

1. No character development

The books move way too fast, you are left wishing they would slow down a little bit and Larson would more fully develop the background story as to the other aliens, the mysteries of the universe he setup, the military strategy, the political issues, etc. That being said, this is a minor problem compared to the love story.

2. The girlfriend damn near makes the books unreadable

Without the underlying love story between Kyle Riggs and Sandra, the books are already stretching (but not quite reaching) semi-ridiculous. Thanks to the action and plot weaves and the uniqueness of the universe that Larson creates, he makes up for these surface-level deficits in a big way.

That being said, Sandra nearly ruins the books completely. In the first place, she is way too involved in every aspect of the story. No one would buy a military commander bringing his girlfriend everywhere with him in the middle of a war. Even worse, the unprofessionalism of it all is just snickered and waved off by all of the characters around them, even the inner circle (even though Larson makes them out to be strict no non-sense pros in every other way). Worse than that, Riggs even comments that he shouldn't keep bringing her everywhere, but that is followed by another adventure in which she is literally on his tail and inserting herself into everything he does with his approval.

Though I could give many examples from the first four books, reading chapter 22 of this particular book was the absolute height of folly. I don't want to give away too much of what happens, but lets just say that when computer aliens attack your planet and your headquarters, sending hundreds of ground troops to surround you (after just destroying most of your headquarters), the general on-scene wouldn't decide to go off to the half-destroyed mess hall for a gourmet dinner and get drunk all night. Then, with enemy ships still visible in the sky, proceed to go on a 36 hour vacation to have sex with his girlfriend off on the beach in some far corner of the island (with enemy ships visible in the sky overhead, no less). This is an example of where this series goes from truly entertaining, if not B level, sci-fi and into a cartoon.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great reading, but better be careful 27 février 2012
Par N. Schmitt - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
These stories are great. Fun and quick to read, likeable characters, well done action, etc. The only thing that is scaring me is that the author is getting a little too comfortable with the plot lines. The idea of "Hero is all but defeated, pulls off a 1 in a 100 move that wins it" is becoming 1 in a 1000000. Keep the stories believable. :)
