They battle the innocent and the vile alike, until their situation becomes grim. Rebellion is a military science-fiction novel by best-selling author B. V. Larson.

Rebellion brings it together.

B. V. Larson's Rebellion book 3 in the Star Force Series Pulls the story line from books 1 & 2
together yet leaves you wanting more. Very good ballance of action and Sci-Fi. I plan to buy the rest of the series as they are developed. Best series I've listen to sence i've listened to Fred Saberhagen's Berserker series. Mark Boyett does an exceptional performance in this series.
Hope he stays with it..........

A Very Good Series

What did you love best about Rebellion?

It's an overall good story. This one in particular is very fast paced, action in just about every chapter without going too in depth into techno babble. Just enough to paint the picture and move on.

The narrating is absolutely superb across all three books. Hopefully, Boyett comes back for #4.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Kyle Riggs, of course. Nobody in this series lives long enough to go too in depth with. But, it's a 1st person story telling so just the nature of the beast.

Which scene was your favorite?

Not sure there really is a favorite here. One stands out but strikes me as an author just deciding to take his main character on a death defiance trip for cheers.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Star Force Marines, life expectancy: thirty seconds.

Why not?

If you've made it this far into the series you know that this is just a fun Sci fi series and Mark Boyett does a great job at narrating the book. I look forward to more books in this series.

good clean fun

Would you consider the audio edition of Rebellion to be better than the print version?

Yes, it was very well delivered...all 3 in the series were.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, Kyle Riggs of course. In this book, he was more human, less brilliant than in the 1st especially. The only thing about this character that I kept thinking was, he's a college professor, no military experience, and in charge of military veterans, indeed, in charge of Starforce, responsible for Earth's existence?

What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Personality, he adds a layer of interest to all the characters. He's good with accents.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The herd race, choosing to die as they did...that was thought provoking.

Any additional comments?

Great series, as someone else said in their review of the first book, the scene descriptions leave you enough leeway to

Pure Unabashed Sci-Fi Fun

My first venture into the world of military Sci-Fi was John Ringo, and I was so disappointed with his books, that I was reluctant to try a different series in the same genre. When I saw that the narrator, Mark Boyett, was the same as the Ringo books that I had disliked, I had further reservations, even though Boyett is a great narrator.

My fears were totally unfounded. This is a light, action-packed sci-fi adventure where the fast-paced story is never held back by overly-detailed technology explanations or self-righteous, right-wing sermonizing as in the Ringo books.

The sci-fi tech is very interesting and well-thought out. I found it was also pleasing that the tech did not seem to be the point of the story, but rather was secondary to the well-conceived plot.

The protagonist questions himself, and yet is capable and competent, with a good since of humor. He is very likeable and it is enjoyable to be privy to his decision-making process throughout the numerous battles with the Macros and other species.

I usually just listen to my audiobooks in my hour commute back and forth from work. The Star Force series has been so intriguing and gripping that I had to bring it into the house and listen to it there as well.

I've finished three of the books so far, and each time I finish one, I don't wait until I have the credits to buy the next installment. I've not had this much fun with Sci-Fi in a long time, and I will probably be exploring more of B.V. Larson's books in the future.

Three and still strong

I like most who have reviewed this series, thoroughly enjoyed the first two episodes and have just finished the third and its terrific. If you like action,aliens and tongue in cheek plots take a ride you wont be disappointed. narration is good, story is interesting and the price is right.
