Présentation de l'éditeur

Fresh out of the Academy, Ensign Cody Riggs follows his legendary father Kyle into space with fiancee Ensign Olivia Turnbull by his side. But instead of enjoying a quick trip around Earth's federated star systems they are thrown into a battle for their lives as their ship is hurled hundreds of light-years from home with no way back. Fighting hostile aliens and enemies within his own crew, Riggs finds himself facing challenges he never envisioned as he takes command of the battlecruiser Valiant in a desperate bid to survive and return home.

Joined by a new supporting cast as well as favorites from the first nine Star Force books such as Marvin, Kwon and Hoon, this first volume of a new Star Force series delivers all the action and adventure readers have come to expect from BV Larson and David VanDyke. Read it first, or go back to Star Force Book One, SWARM, and experience the saga from the beginning.

The new Saga in the Star Force universe begins with OUTCAST, the longest book in the series. OUTCAST is a full length novel of military science fiction by bestselling authors B. V. Larson and David VanDyke.

It 's good to see the follow up using new characters
And so far the start of this sequel seems @ the same intensity level of the previous one.
Good material ...
Can't wait for the second book

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's nice to see this story continue. Highly recommended. 12 mai 2014
Par Wally Lafferty - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I was a bit skeptical at first that the story could pick up after the end of the original saga, but I was absolutely delighted with the direction this is going. A spoiler here: I really like the idea that the team is lost. That's a new twist that has great potential for lots of future story-telling.

One of the strengths of the previous saga is that the stories somehow remained fresh and not very formulaic. I hope that will continue. Hint: Not every adventure has to include near-defeat in a hopeless battle with aliens. If they remain cut off from Earth, they'll eventually run out of crew to die in battle. I hope the author explores other ways of keeping the story intense and fresh.

I was a little disappointed in the beginning of this one, as the now aging Kyle and Jasmine seemed terribly out of character. Jasmine in this saga seemed like an entirely different person. Kyle and Kwon both seemed a little shallow compared to their characters in the previous saga. Nevertheless, I believe this story is a real winner. If you enjoyed the original Star Force series, you won't regret starting this new one. I hope it continues into many new novels.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice addition, but we've seen this guy before, right? 20 mai 2014
Par Mathachew - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you've enjoyed Larson's previous nine Star Force novels, then you should find a certain level of satisfaction with this latest installment. Outcast is a decent addition to the Star Force universe and handled well for series newcomer David VanDyke. While there are a few spots that could use trimming and I have several small gripes, the story moves at a decent pace and kept me mostly entertained.

I've never read any of VanDyke's works, but he does a great job handling the story, to the point where I am unable to tell who is writing. There are multiples uses of AU (astronomical unit), and to my best recollection, Larson has rarely, if ever, used this term. Other than that, the lines are blurred on the writing style, which is a big plus as it makes the reading experience very cohesive. Larson's prose in previous Star Force makes reading them a breeze, and Outcast is no exception.

My biggest gripe is that Cody is written as a virtual clone of his dad, Kyle. Everything about him screams Kyle Riggs and there's really no distinction between the two. Reactions, decisions, impulses, bravado, it's all just like his old man. The book spans several months and at no point did Cody exhibit anything different during the numerous lulls, obstacles, and struggles, both physical and emotional. Given the continuous, never-ending struggle of survival for the crew on Valiant and the ample opportunities to show a different character, it's hard to believe that future books will see Cody break out of the mold of Kyle Riggs.

Outcast takes place 20 years after The Dead Sun, so is Sergeant Major Kwon really still a bored, active marine who happens to be right in the thick of a science experiment gone wrong? There's Marvin, the source of much frustration (for the characters) and entertainment/intrigue (for us readers), who also happens to hitch a ride when Cody leaves Earth. Then there's the standard Riggs luck that Kyle has exhibited throughout the years going strong with Cody. We've seen this many times before, but now they're effectively stranded in space.

Each of these items accumulated to a read that started fun, then continued into something we've ultimately seen before, even with the new threat being vastly different than anything before it. Outcast is by no means a bad book, and not even close to the worst in the series, but I couldn't help but feel that we've gotten more of the same, with a few exceptions along the way. Two new races are discovered, a threat more devastating than the Macros is introduced and the book ends with a bit more intrigue. There's still plenty of potential for fun, and I'm still as eager as ever to see where it goes. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 5 juin 2014
Par Ozer Unluhisarcikli - Publié sur Amazon.com

The fact that I read the 10th book in the series should tell you that I am a huge fan of Mr. Larsen's work. However, while reading "Outcast" I felt something was out of place. The book did not have the same depth. Character development was weak, and the one word that kept ringing in my head was "cheesy". Only when I finished the book I realized that there was actually a second author to the book. Then I thought "OK that explains a lot". I don't know the reason behind introducing a second author, but my personal opinion is that was a mistake.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Son Pickups Where His Father Leaves Off! 2 septembre 2014

What happens to your story hero when he gets old and apparently has accomplished everything he was planning to do? Well, you make sure he had a son some where along the way and then you start writing about his adventures. So, out goes Colonel Kyle Riggs and in comes Cody Riggs!

And as the son of most famous person in the universe, you tend to get defensive about your own actions which is just the way Cody Riggs is acting. He doesn't seem to take anything seriously. Even though he manages to graduate from Star Force Academy with his girl friend Olivia, nothing really seems to bother Cody Riggs because he knows he can't compete with this father's legacy.

Then his girl friend and fiancé gets killed on what was to be a pre-wedding joy ride in her fathers new space yacht. Cody doesn't know who killed her or why or even if they were really after her in the first place. But he vows to find the killers and put an end to them. In so doing, we are on another space adventure with a Riggs and eventually, Marvin. Certainly by now if you've read any of these books you have heard of Marvin and have an opinion one way or another on his value to the story line. I personally think Marvin should have been dismembered a long time ago. But no, he's still around to mess with Cody Riggs and cause trouble.

You'll find out that this story takes Cody and his fiancé sister, Adrienne, out of the Solar System and through another ring gate only this time, the ring gate is one way! Cody also meets some new aliens in this new system who at first seem friendly enough except for a slight misunderstanding in language. All six officers, including Admiral Turnbull, leave to meet with these strange looking aliens and all six do not return. Riggs is now the only Star Force Academy office on the battleship, Figures!

From there it's one fight or flight after another with no friendly civilizations any where around. Cody has to manage just like his father did making life or death decisions at every turn. They flee one star system to another only to find hostiles waiting or friendlies that need help but don't appreciate the help he and his crew give them. Along with Marvin, Cody Riggs puts on another show of brilliant tactics and war fighting abilities that surprise even him.

I found this book easy to read and very enjoyable except for some of the parts dealing with Marvin. I think he gets too much freedom when he should have been melted down a long time ago.

The story line continues....

[Update: Just like authors, reviewers should read their comments! My spelling leaves a lot to be desired!]

I hope that B.V. Larson continues this series. It is beginning to remind me of the Star Wars universe with its character development over many volumes, especially Marvin--we still don't know what his agenda may be. I for one want to see what's in store for Riggs' next generation.
