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.

Scott Sigler is a hell of a good narrator
great story. loved the passion for the game. thanks for allowing me to be a part by listening
"this series convinced my son books can be fun. "
I will always be a fan of this series and the author. I am not a sports fan, but I am a fan of sci-fi. This book is great on both fronts. Be warned: If you listen to this book you will consume the entire series like a psyco, robe wearing, Harry Potter fan.
"Scott Sigler Is The Best "
Scott genuinely captures me with every single paragraph. I loved the infected trilogy but this is even better. Downloading the next book now!!
"Loving this series"
Really original. I love football and fantasy/sci-fi so this is a great mix. The author is great at narrative giving unique voices to all the characters.
"Even better than 1st book for a non-"sporting" ear"
I rarely enjoy listening to or viewing a sporting event, so do not follow play by plays easily. But, I did enjoy this book. The outside of the stadium shenanigans got interesting
Even if you know nothing about American football, because your Australian. This is a good read and keeps you very interested. Love the series!!!
"Another great one."
These books thus far have been action packed. The author's narrative really adds to the story. I am not sure I'd enjoy the books as much just reading them.
Great series by Scott Sigler. I have been following his works since PodioBooks. Keep 'em coming as fast and furious as you can, Scott.
"A great sequel!"
Can't believe the follow up was even better than the rookie. It surpassed every expectation I had. Scott Sigler is the best for reading this series.
