Publisher's Summary

Lost and cut off from Earth, the crew of the starship Valiant seeks a way home. In the 11th book of the Star Force series Cody Riggs collides with the overwhelming power of the Ancients. They fly incomprehensible ships and consider humans to be curiosities. Caught between ghosts of the past and demons of the present, Cody is abandoned by everyone. His girl, his crew, and even his ships change sides, exiling him in the cold depths of space. Demonstrating the strength of any Riggs, Cody manages to claw his way back into the game, upsetting the plans of his enemies and his allies alike. The only question is whether or not he'll live long enough to regret it.

Exile is a full length novel of science fiction by best-selling authors B. V. Larson and David VanDyke. The first book telling Cody Riggs' story is titled Outcast. If you've never read any of the Star Force novels, Swarm was the beginning of it all.

    "Great sequels"

    Really enjoying this series. i hope audible continues to record these as they are released. old kyle riggs pretty much lives on in his son. ...Although cody has a little less arrogance. The writing has also improved, I'm guessing that is helped mature b v larsons style Co writing this series with another. Heaps of new planets and aliens introduced, so I'm guessing plenty of story lines still available for the series to continue. probably the only thing missing is extra characters. bv larson just sticks with about 4 central characters and fails to give a fuller picture, needs to broaden his view. but the action is great and it's interesting to see Marvin develop and be given more freedom

    Riggs junior is every bit the rebel as his father was. New adventures, new aliens and some old mainstays. Mark Boyets reading and interpretation of the characters is superb as usual.

    "Great Series, Cody is entirely too much like Kyle."

    I am excited based on the last couple hours of the audiobook for what is to come, but please for the love of Star Force, Cody needs to stop being an exact copy of his father's character.

    Anxiously awaiting the other series by BV Larson too!

    Story
    "Another Ripping Yarn"

    Exile, the eleventh book in the Star Force series and second featuring Cody
    Riggs as the main protagonist following on from his father, Kyle Riggs,
    raises its game even further in this enthralling and exciting adventure.
    Larson and Van Dyke have come together again to develop an excellent follow
    on from the previous book, Outcast and we as the reader are pulled into the
    action right from the start with bugs akin to the largest seen in the
    Starship Troopers original movie. Larson and Van Dyke suck the reader in
    right away and keep the interest, action and intrigue going all the way in
    this ripping yarn.

    Exile brings into the storey mix a welcome aspect in the form of the
    "dimensional maze" which proved mysterious and fascinating as the characters
    explore this strange and confusing inner world. The technology and intent of
    the all powerful and yet barely understood race called "The Ancients" sees
    the authors intrigue us with time and dimensional effects that go beyond
    what we understand as technology in the conventional sense and this element
    alone spark the imagination and illustrates the brilliant and very alien
    concepts imaginatively depicted.

    Cody gets some extra help to bolster his already depleted crew from an
    unexpected source which nicely sees "Riggs Pigs" take on a dual species mix
    that we haven't seen since the Sentars integration into the Star Force
    Marines back in the main Kyle Riggs series of stories which is a welcome
    plot element.

    This book keeps the action and interest going at all times and I find I keep
    wanting to read just one more chapter and take every opportunity I can to
    delve back into the unfolding and gripping story. As mentioned in previous
    reviews of Larson's work, I find his writing style and narrative
    refreshingly straight forward and heavily biased toward fast moving plots
    and always keeping things relevant and interesting unlike a lot of science
    fiction stories which can tend to be rather heavy or cerebral in nature. If
    you've been put off sci-fi in the past because of such things then you will
    find Larson's writing much more accessible and in a style that will more
    likely leave you feeling a shot of adrenaline rather than a headache.

    In this story a character we thought long lost and not seen since the early
    Star Force books makes an appearance which causes Cody Riggs all sorts of
    problems. From the readers perspective it was obvious what this person would
    do and I could see it coming but this is not a failing in the story but
    rather, I think, the still overly trusting Cody character who didn't
    understand this person as we the reader do. While on the subject of Cody
    Riggs, I still tend to think that he is far too competent a leader and
    tactician given his 24 odd years regardless of who his father was and the
    stated 4 years in Star Force Academy. I'd like to see a few more mistakes or
    errors of judgment we can see relates to his youth and lack of life
    experience but that is only a minor point I have in relation to how this
    key character is written.

    The previous book, Outcast, which kicked off this new chapter in Star Force
    also brought back a much loved character for me in the guise of the ever
    loyal Kwan. I was so pleased to see him back in the pages of these books and
    his presence in this story is even more welcome as he plays a larger part of
    the overall narrative and often comes out with funny lines that befit his
    simple and direct personality.

    Exile also sees the return of an adversary not seen in an active state since
    the end of the main Star Force series ended with book 9. However, one rather
    odd plot aspect that I thought strange was why when invading our band of
    heroes vessel that rather than want to just tear up the ship why it was that
    they simply didn't have a nuclear bomb with them and detonate it once aboard
    thus ending in the most efficient way the scourge of Star Force and Cody
    Riggs. Typically, when such a departure from what might appear the easiest
    way to kill our hero and his crew and ship comes about the author manages to
    see this as something the reader will ponder over and finds a clever and
    believable explanation to deal with the plot or behavioural anomaly which
    doesn't happen here.

    Still, this oversight does not detract from the enjoyment of the story and
    I suppose that even the most imaginative writers cannot always do the things
    we think an enemy should as it would simply end the story so I am not
    marking the snovel down on this tiny point.

    If you liked Outcast then you will love Exile even more. It is fast paced
    with plenty of mystery and action in just the right mix and perhaps leaves
    the reader at the most fascinating cliff hanger ending I can think of late
    in this series of books. I remember thinking "What? .. Oh no, it's just
    finished like that!". There's nothing quite like an ending leaving you on
    the edge of your proverbial seat to want to make you come back for more and
    Larson does this so well throughout this series and always manages to
    maintain or even increase the quality of the story such that the reader is
    never disappointed in each follow on in the series. it's hard to do this and
    this marks Larson and Van Dyke out as those that can continually rise to the
    challenge of writing interesting and enthralling stories again and again.

    Mark Boyett goes without saying regarding the quality of his ongoing
    narration in this series and his range of voices and accents are superb
    providing the story with rich characterization and giving the reader clear
    and easily distinct characters that makes the audio form, I believe, the
    definitive version of such books. After all, for thousands of years and even
    before the written word humans have been listening to the spoken word for
    story telling and this seems to me the ultimate form to render a book in.

    As ever I have to point out one mistake right at the start of the book which
    saw Boyett saying "Army piercing" rather than "Armour piercing" but despite
    me bringing up such errors in my reviews, I do not blame the narrator but
    rather think it's more a failing of the production team to detect and have
    such misspoken words corrected. the narrator does a splendid job and so any
    minor errors made by him are quite forgivable given the overall top
    quality reading he does.

    Exile is another superb read and one that continues to extend the Star Force
    series in an ever expanding universe of interesting, thought provoking and
    exciting directions.

    Yet again, excellently written and narrated.
    I love the Star Force books. I really hope a 12th edition is written.
    Every book keeps you on your toes and at the edge of your seat, so to speak.
    I also hope Kyle Riggs comes back into the story.
    I will continue to buy the Star Force Series!

    narration is great as always, to the extent that I now struggle with other narrators who lack his character range.

    if you like Star Force, then you must check out the Undying Mercenaries series, it's as good if not better.
