Stryker the Liberator

Another marvel. The ending was superb. Can't wait for the next instalment. B.V Larson and Mr David VanDyke, you're amazing.

Decent overall plot but some characters.. -_-

So the overall plot is quite good but sometimes the little "arcs" that happen manage to make me hate some of the characters and at one point I was very close to giving up on the book but I am glad I stuck with it until the end.
I do not believe that Styker would be so reckless or could have gotten to his position by being so. He is frustratingly stupid sometimes but at others manages to have a spark of genius although his choices are what made me nearly stop listening.

Disappointed in this 3rd book

I really enjoyed the first two books and was looking forward to this one.

There were some interesting space battles, but for the most part, I was rather bored with this book and eager for it to end. Straker was acting like a dumb, steroid hopped up, arrogant prick most of the time... especially while on Terra Nova... that part of the book couldn't end soon enough! I'd be willing to bet on which author wrote those chapters.


Mark Boyett's performance was as good as the first two books.

Deus Ex Machina anyone?

The basis of this series is great, but the fact that everything turns out perfectly every time is a bit frustrating. You can't have coincidence solve a problem every single chapter, it is dumb and is a bit lazy. the series has become more and more about letting coincidence show up over and over to allow an easy out. well performed, but come on man...

Enjoyed It.

At first there seem to be two different stories but the author brought them together nicely and turned out to be a nice read.

GO!!!

From beginning to end this book is just plain action, unending action, until last several minutes. Boyett remains masterful as always, while the authors pace and battle vignettes can overload one’s senses, to bad I’m only human with out the support of an AI to keep track of the numerous story lines. In summary, an excellent addition to this series.

The Way to Keep the Story Alive!

Without going into much detail, I will only state that this episode of the series started out on a steady path from the previous books and then took a leap-of-faith vector in another direction making for highly interesting entertainment.

Aliens, Tentacles and Bugs, Oh My!

I thought the first two of this series were less than great. If all you care about is fantasy space battles with imaginary tech and weapons, they are perfect but if you want any depth of character and intrigue in the circumstances, they are sorely lacking. This third book is much more involved and mature. I expect some of the negative reviewers only wanted more space battles but at some point, the author has to set the stage for future developments and the introduction of the larger threat to all intelligent life in the galaxy. For example, Straker's visit to Terra Nova at first seemed childish and contrived to me but it was a fun romp and in the end, it provided an interesting way to explain a great deal about the hive aliens that will no doubt be essential for the 4th book in this series. Most of the story arcs from the first two books were brought to completion in this one as well as an expert setup for the next book in the series. I purchased all of the first three in a special deal from Audible and, about half way through the first book, I thought I'd return them. Now I'm glad I listened to all three and I am looking forward to buying and enjoying the 4th. This is a very intelligent and well crafted series and I recommend you start with the first book and go all the way through.

Probably the best one of the series.

It did it's job and entertained me, and also did a good job in making the perspectives outside of the Liberators more captivating.
