    Story
    (430)

    For centuries, the world of Safehold, last redoubt of the human race, lay under the unchallenged rule of the Church of God Awaiting. The Church permitted nothing new - no new inventions, no new understandings of the world.What no one knew was that the Church was an elaborate fraud - a high-tech system established by a rebel faction of Safehold’s founders, meant to keep humanity hidden from the powerful alien race that had destroyed old Earth.

    Roy J. Meek says: "A long suffering reader ploughs on"
    "Finally back to the original narrator!"

    What made the experience of listening to Like a Mighty Army the most enjoyable?

    Getting back to Oliver Wyman, who read the first two books in the series.


    Have you listened to any of Oliver Wyman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, back to the original "voice"


    Any additional comments?

    I just hope they stick to the same narrator for the rest of the series.

    The authority of the Syndicate Worlds’ government is crumbling. Civil war and rebellion are breaking out in many star systems, despite the Syndic government’s brutal attempts to suppress disorder. Midway is one of those star systems, and leaders there must decide whether to remain loyal to the old order or fight for something new.

    "Good spinoff"

    If you could sum up The Lost Stars: Tarnished Knight in three words, what would they be?

    Machiavellian evolving democracy


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gives a view into what's going on behind the scenes with some of the key minor characters from the Lost Fleet series.


    Have you listened to any of Marc Vietor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Marc's a solid narrator, and this performance is no different. I don't hesitate to purchase books he's read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really, no. The main characters, as former CEOs of the Syndicate Worlds, developed extremely Machiavellian outlooks on life. Therefore, they are hard-pressed to be truly heroic, although they're cautiously moving towards breaking those behavior patterns. They come across a basically good people who have learned to be ruthless in order to survive a system that punished altruism.
