Battle Cruiser

One starship will either save Earth or destroy her. A century ago our star erupted, destroying Earth’s wormhole network and closing off trade with her colonized planets. After being out of contact with the younger worlds for so many years, Humanity is shocked when a huge ship appears at the edge of the Solar System. Our outdated navy investigates, both curious and fearful. What they learn from the massive vessel shocks the planet. The lost colonies have survived—but the reunion isn’t going to be a happy one. Our descendants are vastly superior in the art of warfare. Worse, there are other beings undreamed of beyond the human frontier: strange, unfathomable…alien. Battle Cruiser Defiant, the first capital ship to darken Earth’s skies, is tasked with exploring new passages to the younger planets. Old Earth must reunite with her children…but can humanity survive the inevitable conflicts? Captain William Sparhawk, determined to follow a path of honor and truthfulness, dares to rise to the challenge. BATTLE CRUISER is a military science fiction novel by bestselling author B. V. Larson.

  1. Not bad Not bad. A little slow at the beginning, but has a good ending. A new universe for Mr. Larson and it could prove very interesting as a series. Some of the science isn’t great, but easily overlooked.I rate it PG-13 for language and violence. I recommend it as a decent start for a series

  2. A new beginning I’ve read the author’s Star Force and Undying Mercenaries series and am a fan. In those series, the writing style is similar – high paced, informal language, gratuitous sex. Fun, but not very serious. 

  3. Larson does it again For fans of any of B.V. Larson’s previous books rejoice! He doesn’t disappoint with this book and his writing skills continue to improve. Earth has been severed from her many planetary colonists for over a century and a half. The “cataclysm”, a solar flare event similar in nature to the “Carrington Event” of the mid 19th Century, destroys Earth’s ability to access worm holes which makes deep space exploration possible.
