Publisher's Summary

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.

But time is running out for the stranded, battered fleet. They're low on food, fuel, and missiles. Worse for Maddox, Meta is missing, kidnapped by the enemy, while the alien personality in the AI struggles to adjust to this new era. Can Maddox pull everyone together or will the brilliant New Men win yet another stunning victory? The Lost Command is the second book in the Lost Starship series.

    "getting better"

    What a difference a good narrator does. much better than the first book. the story is improving and the author has taken what was a bad story and given it a much needed boost in the right direction.

    "Good extension"

    This was a good extension of the previous story. It is obvious that it leaves more to be written. The New Men are exposed a little more. Just be prepared to have to get the next book.
    Boyett did a good job.

    "Good story"

    I really am starting to enjoy this series. Great storyline... And, a swashbuckling adventure with interesting characters who are developing in depth in this second book. If you liked the first book (I did.) then you will find this one even better.

    "Great adventure"

    Narrator has convincing distinctive voices. Good peril, character development, technological innovations and sci-fi world creation. Good strategic battles in space and in person.
    Looking forward to more in the series.

    "Well Thought Out Series"

    This book works well as the second in a series. The Writer does well to continue from the last book instead of taking a chapter or two to catch you up. In all series, at the second book, the Writer has to remind you of things as you keep reading. So too does Vaughn Heppner remind you of details, however, the Writer does not slow down the pace of the read to give you a history lesson. The second volume in a series allows the writer to really take off with the story, and this book is no let down. No huge questions are left looming to distract you from the telling of the story. Much is explained about each character and the polishing of them shines through. Very enjoyable listen.

    Mark Boyett never disappoints.

    "Great listen..."

    Narration was especially good. Mr. Boyer is very talented.

    I liked this book even better than the first. That might be because I'm more invested in the characters now, but I do think Heppner has done a fantastic job writing this book. I often find myself bored with many writers because of too much fluff and being way too verbose in their writing. That isn't the case with Mr. Heppner and I look forward to the next volumes..

    I really enjoyed reading this book. I only wish the first book was narrated by Mark Boyett. Hopefully he reads the next book also.

    Story
    "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 saver for the author, to use Mark Boyett. One rider to that is; please, please, drop the scottish accent; it doesn't work. Some phraseology is not what a Scot would use and seems to revert to cockney at times. That said, cockney is preferable to the struggle with scottish accent. This is the only reason why I gave performance 4 stars, which may be a little harsh!

    The continuing pace made this a book I had trouble putting down and got through it in two sessions, which was quite a feat for me. I am looking forward to the next instalment.
