    An explosive new science fiction series by New York Times best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson, Hidden Empire is the first volume in The Saga of the Seven Suns, modeled after the Star Wars and X-Files universes. Anderson has become the foremost science fiction writer of the century, bringing to life vivid characters and worlds that delight his fans across the galaxy.

    A User says: "Great Listen"
    "Good choice overall. Bit slow, needs more action."
    Overall

    Anderson spends to much time on the charactors and thier lives rather than on the main story line, which makes the book a bit slow and lacking in action. But overall it's a good story, and a good listen. I anticipate that the second book in the series {which is currently available on Audible} will be more action packed, since the charactors have been so thoroughly covered in this book.
    George Guidall is one of the best Readers of audio books there is, so have no worries over how this book will sound.
    P.S. It seems to me that over the past 15 years or so, Editors have become extreamly lazy. I blame the Editor of this book rather than the author, for any of it's short comings. A good editor would have told Anderson, " Shut Up about the charactors already and get on with the story".

    Imagine it were possible to bring the characters from a book to life. Not like when you listen to an audiobook with such enchantment that the characters seem to jump off the pages and into your bedroom...but for real. Imagine they could actually climb out of the pages and into our world. Then imagine if those characters brought their world into ours.

    "BUY THIS. No need to be a child to enjoy this."
    Overall

    This book is engrossing and very entertaining. I highly recommend getting it. To list whats good about this book would take to long, so I'll just list it's one fault. There is a point in the middle of the book, where the charactors make an amazingly stupid or perhaps naive choice. It is so stupid that it's impossible to believe this is how the charactors would act, it really angered me the author chose to have the charactors do it.
