Summary

It finally happened. Commander Thrax Ti Ix created a hyper-spatial tube for the Swarm Imperium. Across thousands of light-years, a vast armada of warships is heading for Earth to burn the homeworld down to its bedrock as the Swarm begins its genocidal campaign against the human race.

No one - not the New Men, the Spacers, the Wahhabi Caliphate, or Star Watch - has faced such staggering odds. Alone or united, it makes no difference.

Captain Maddox has a last-ditch plan. He's returning to the null region of last voyage to grab the ancient Destroyers hidden there. But an immortal entity of evil cunning haunts the vessels. If it escapes its prison...Maddox will have made things infinitely worse.

This time, mankind needs a miracle.

The Lost Earth is the seventh book in the Lost Starship series.

Good, if a little slow

A little slow getting into this one. Whether this has the staying power to go on much longer is another question.

Narration, as always with Mark Boyett, was very good and kep the book going.

Good, though physic and gods introduced

Good final battle and fine narration, though baddies not mentioned upto now appear. Physic powers, Ghosts and God bothering, not needed in the past six books now play a part in the story.

Great conclusion to an awesome series.

A great conclusion to an awesome story. while the author could go on I think ending it here is good enough.

Another great edition to the series

A great wrap up in the first three quarters but the finale was just abrupt and not satisfying at all. I’m sure there may be more but really. I just killed a billion people and whipped out two enemies all in 20 pages. But still a great series.

A phoned in effort

Story was good but a little disjointed. its seems the author was rushed or just tired of this series and eager to get on to another subject. A good listen but his usual quality.

Not as good as the previos books

What did you love best about The Lost Earth?

Same great characters, great voice acting, and good length for the money.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lost Earth?

Richer and Ludendorf in the hallway...not leaving any spoilers.

What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

Range of voice for different characters.

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

When you thought it couldn't get any worse for humanity...

Any additional comments?

Ending of the book felt rushed and lacking. Almost like there was suppose to be longer and more thorough but was condensed due to editors, publishers, or time constraints.

Good story but, perhaps a little to far out there

I enjoyed the book but I had trouble with some of the species . I lost touch with the main actor after about a third of the way through the book. I had hoped I would get back in touch, but never really did until the very end. I rely a little disapointed, but still it was worth the read.

This series keeps getting better. Heppner tells a fun, exciting story that leaves me wanting more.

Likely my favorite installment to date

This one was really well done and I enjoyed all of it. This book seems like a really good ending point for this series. Save for a conclusion to the New Men and the captains lineage, I see this book as a great finisher to a very enjoyable series.

Despite my love of this book one minor fault I want to point out is that Marc did not say words correctly at times.

Other than that love the series and am looking forward to more of this authors work, even if he does another novel in this series.

loved it, teared up a little at the end.

Vaughn did an excellent job on this series and especially this book. also Mark Boyett is an excellent narrator.
