Captain William Sparhawk, the very man who convinced the secretive Council to build this terrifying fleet, now has doubts about the project. What is their exact mission? How could anyone have built these huge ships so quickly? And, most puzzling of all, what's happening out at the isolated laboratory complex on Phobos, Mars' lopsided moon?

"Great Series Not so Great Ending"
I loved the Lost Colonies series, but was slightly dissatisfied with the predictable ending of this installment.
"overall solid book"
I recommend the series. This has been my least favorite book of the series. The first book was good, the second book was amazing and this book was decent. I really enjoy the space battles, the suspense on the duration of space battles is interesting and B V Larson does a great job with space battles. The space battle in this book just isn't as good as the 1st and 2nd book.
The last 3 hours of the book were the best of the whole book.
Of all the space books I've read Edoardo Ballerini is by far my favorite narrator.
Without giving to much of the plot, I was disappointed one of my favorite characters wasn't in most of the book.
"excellent series "
What an excellent series. Never predictable and always keeping you guessing. Read this series! This last book was a little long but the plot twists kept you going. Narrator was skilled and at first I didn't like his voice but it grew on me throughout the series.
"StarHawk protector of the realms returns"
Bold and better then ever,star hawk and the guard are battling back star hawk is bold and better then everyone is at risk and a new dawn is coming or the
"Enjoyed the slightly different direction taken"
I'd probably listen to this series again so yes it's worth it to listen to.
It is a good adventure with interesting futuristic cultural bio-mechanical thinking. A world within a world.
" A Trilogy of Thought"
This is the final book in this trilogy and brings together all the clues of the first two books into light and action. After discovering the fleet sent by earth was dispatched for its secretive purpose to destroy all colonist life and thus protecting the true rulers of earth known as the council, Catan Sparhawk and his crew go to protect all of earth's people against annihilation and retribution of an old idea whose time had ended. Seeking alliances from the very remnants of those colonies earth had first established and now seeker to cleanse from all existance they stop the current threat but realize the true threat would never cease in its perseverance to exist and in so doing so control each individual on earth. A very good story line of good versus evil and the rather simple process that was used to keep all under the control of the few. 4 Stars
"Writing style has changed in this book"
Writing style has changed from the first two books and didn't liked the way it takes. Sometimes seems the history was moving a bit too fast.
"sorta like the matrix"
first book fantastic, second book drug on too long and should have been cut and added on to first and final book.
really enjoyed the first of the trilogy the most, recommend getting for a long roadtrip. cant recommend to the youmger crowd due to some scenes
"great addition, keep them coming!"
Larson is king, love the new series, keep the coming!
reading is excellent, engaging story, nice change of pace with the gentleman protagonist.
"A Short Series"
Star Carrier, the final book in the Lost Colonies series from B V Larson is of the same general standard as the previous two stories in the trilogy. As mentioned before in my reviews of those books, the Lost Colonies series appears to cater for what I consider a younger target audience, lacking the gritty edge of Larsson's other major series like the Star Force and Undying Mercenaries sagas. This is not necessarily a bad thing as I feel it's the mark of a good author when they can alter the style and content of their stories to appeal to a wider audience. Star Carrier is consistent in this regard to the previous books in the series and although lacking the sophistication of his other stories is still a worthwhile read.
The sense I got was that Larson perhaps ran out of ideas and ended this series at just 3 books. Given it's a lost colonies theme, there would seem to me plenty of scope for more stories but I feel Larson experimented with a "lighter" type of science fiction only to discover the idea had ran out of steam. Larson excels at the darker more visceral and alien aspects and having to tone down these themes may have proved too limiting for him.
Star Carrier is nonetheless an entertaining read on the whole and Ballerini's narration was excellent and totally consistent with that of the previous two parts to this trilogy. Given the way the book concluded, it does appear to me that Larson has closed the door on any more in this series.
An entertaining and lightweight series but one worth a read when you wish to tackle something more digestible than some of the much heavier fare out there in the science fiction genre.
