Some of the worst writing I've ever read. Poor plot, typos, ridiculous, inconsistent characters.

I liked this one alot and actuaaly read it second right after stardoc. Now i have to go back and find the title of the one where they were captured by the hstkhstk! I really wish at the end of one novel the author would give a preview or at least title of the next one!

Not as great as the previous books in the series. However, still well written and very interesting. The main characters seem to still be having problems communicating with each other to keep their marriage happy, but they compliment each other. Not sure how, but they do.

Shockball is an amazing game that I hope will be mentioned, at least in cameos, in future books. (i.e. Conversations in a resturant around them or in passing, ad on some sort of space ship TV.)

All-in-all, I highly recommend this entire series! AWESOME!

Ohhhhhhhhh, Ms. Viehl. What the heck took you so long? 'Shockball' was a . . . well, a shock. Almost from the start it went in a direction that I completely did not expect. And just when I was feeling smug about being able to predict where things were going. I like very much that Reever takes some nice abuse, though I don't quite understand the way his role in the story changes. Maybe it'll be explained in the next book. I'm hoping so. Viehl's inventiveness is wonderful. Her depiction of an underground society is very well done and that alone helps drive the story. It doesn't have to, but it's a bonus I won't complain about. As with 'Endurance', there's a dark side to this tale, but it's more subdued, not so relentless. In 'Endurance' Cherijo began to deepena and take on much hoped for new demensions. That continues in 'Shockball', though not at the same frantic pace. Is this Viehl's best story to date? My favorite is still 'Endurance', but I'm betting that many people, especially those who shirked away from the intensity of 'Endurance', will find that 'Shockball' is their hands down favorite. So why are you still here? Go buy the book, and be ready for several days of ignoring everyone and everything around you while you sit alone in a lighted corner or your home, with 'Shockball' glued to your fingers.

As they travel through space, Dr. Cherijo Grey Veil and her spouse, Perpetua ship Captain Duncan Reever are pleased over her pregnancy. However, her joy turns to sadness when she learns her cloned body¿s immunity system is killing the baby. Before she informs her husband she has a miscarriage. Cherijo knows she can never birth a child with anyone except perhaps her demented creator Joseph Grey Veil.

While Cherijo recovers, a meteor shower disables the Perptua beyond repair. Transferring to their other ship Truman may mean that Cherijo¿s creator who gave her that spacecraft may be able to track them via some undetected device. Soon the duo is forced to go underground to live among half-breeds. Duncan has no choice but to participate in the local version of SHOCKBALL even as Cherijo now knows you can hide, but at some time you must fight especially when the cause is personal.

SHOCKBALL, the fourth Stardoc tale, is an exhilarating science fiction space adventure. The zestful story line stays at warp speed even when introducing new readers to the lead characters. Cherijo is as fresh as ever as she undergoes new heartaches while her spouse has his own problems. Fans of futuristic outer space novels will want to take off with this tale and the three previous Stardoc books as all four stories take the audience where they rarely have been before.
