    nice story shame about the narrater

    The story was fine, an old fashioned action movie with all the usual aspects you would expect. The narration however was at times truly appalling, esp..Show More »

    Starship Victory, a faithful alien spacecraft guarding its shattered system for 10,000 years, agreed to come to Earth. Now Captain Maddox and his crew have a new assignment. They must find Professor Ludendorff before the New Men do. The New Men need Ludendorff's help so they can capture the alien starship. Maddox needs the neglected superweapons repaired so he can rescue a Star Watch fleet trapped deep in enemy territory.

    Riveting

    I am so glad I bought Book 2 of this series. After the appalling narration of Book 1, which spoilt it for me, it was a relief, and a real series sav..Show More »

    Starship Victory - Earth's ancient, alien spacecraft - has won a smashing victory against the New Men, driving them from "C" Quadrant. On their way home, Captain Maddox and his crew run into a vast machine trapped inside an ion storm. Maddox doesn't know it yet, but the meeting isn't an accident. There's a traitor aboard ship, implementing a secret plan, threatening to destroy everything Star Watch has achieved against the New Men.

    Good, if a bit out of nowhere

    Yes, I will certainly go through this series of books, though not a match for Bobverse or Expeditionary force series.

    We fought the invading New Men to a standstill and defeated the alien destroyer sent to obliterate Earth. The worst should be over, but it's not. Perfect android replicas are impersonating high-level officials so trust is failing. Worse, the New Men have found allies with an impenetrable stealth technology. This time, however, Earth is going on the offensive. Admiral Fletcher is headed to C Quadrant with a Grand Fleet. He's to liberate the captured planets and find the enemy homeworld.

    Take a Break

    I only quite enjoyed this book as it was a little slow in places and not, in my opinion, up to the previous in the series. However, it will not deter..Show More »

    Last voyage, Captain Maddox entered a distant star system with a Swarm fleet. The sheer numbers were staggering, a 100-1 advantage against all human spacecraft. If the highly aggressive, racist insects gained hyper-spatial tube technology - allowing them to cross 1,000 light-years in seconds - it would mean Armageddon for Earth. Star Watch desperately needs something powerful to offset the annihilating Swarm numbers. As if on cue, Professor Ludendorff declares he has discovered the whereabouts of ancient Builder technology, a tech so potent it could defeat the Swarm.

    Exciting battles if rather quickly sorted out

    A good listen and well narrated, the chacters are still a bit 2d, but you get used to it. As with previous books a need to go somewhere came out of n..Show More »
