    It was a pleasure to have some excellent commentary from 2 brillant writers on the subject of audible books. I have been a fan of audible books for over 15 years and have not really put that much thought into the verbal tradition of storytelling. I loved the enthusiasm expressed by all 3 creators. I think this is something any audible listener would enjoy checking out, even if they are not sci-fi fans. Thanks for this fun audible freebie. Keep up the great work.

    The imperial Majesty Lionstone XIV ruled the human Empire with fear. When Owen Deathstalker, unwilling head of his clan, sought to avoid the perils of the Empire's warring factions, he unexpectedly found a price on his head. He fled to Mistworld, where he began to build an unlikely force to topple the thrown. With the help of his crew, Deathstalker took the first step on a far more dangerous journey to claim the role for which he'd been destined since before his birth.

    "Great Series"
    Overall

    This series is a very fun listen. Mr. Green has written a masterpiece of light-hearted sci-fi. He does take on some moral issues, but he doesn't over-burden or get too "preachy" with them. I am currently listening to this for the 2nd time and enjoying it as much as my first listen. Though many might disagree with me, this is one of my favorite sci-fi stories. I love the nearly equal time given to the different "factions"; nobility, military and rebels.

    I think that most sci-fi fan listeners will enjoy this series if they approach this series without overreaching expectations and an open mind. I found the acting very respectable and it was never distracting from the story for me. Cyborgs, aliens, fights, battles, political and religious intrigue, psionics, "super heroes", A.I.'s; this book pretty much has it all.

    Alien battle fleets converge on earth at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Technology and intrigue blend to form a graphic study of politics, morality, and the brutality of total war. A bitter, hard fought war is raging that ranges from the depths of interstellar space, to a nuclear Battle of the Atlantic, to savage assassinations, and Machiavellian usurpations of power and control.

    "Good but not great, worth a listen"
    Overall

    I have to agree that the production values leave a good bit to be desired. The sound effects step over the acting in a few, short spots and the acting itself is somewhat lacking. The story is less than stellar, but it is still a very enjoyable book for sci-fi fans. I never found myself bored while listening and will definitely listen to it again in the future. I think better production value and a little bit better acting would have greatly helped this book, if those had been better I would have given it 4 stars instead of 3. This is a good book for any sci-fi junkie, just looking for a little light-hearted action and adventure.
