    Kyle Riggs has been away from Earth for a long time.... What’s happening back home? In Empire, the sixth book of the Star Force Series, the story moves in a new direction. Earth falls quiet, and the few reports coming out of the homeworld are increasingly strange. Isolated in the Eden system, Riggs realizes his enemies are forming an alliance against him. Crushed between two monstrous fleets, the last defenders of Star Force must forge their own alliance with the biotic aliens. But which alien race can Riggs truly trust?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Empire to be better than the print version?

    I like the audio version because I am on the move a lot at work and at home so it's easier for me to listen and it's particularly nice when you have a great performer with a good vioce. That's the case with this series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyle Riggs. He is the everyman. He is not a super scientist or a super spy or a super warrior. He is just an ordinary guy thrown into a meat grinder of a situation and he roe to it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked the space station. The thought of actually being out there.


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

    In this series there were many emmorable moments. In this edition, I would have to say when he sent the trator general packing and destroyed his satalites.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there are many more books to come for this series, aditionally I hope the Larson comes out with more scifi like this.

    Kyle Riggs is snatched by an alien spacecraft sometime after midnight. The ship is testing everyone it catches and murdering the weak. The good news is that Kyle keeps passing tests and staying alive. The bad news is the aliens who sent this ship are the nicest ones out there.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this to everyone. I purchased the print copies for my sons and the audio for me. I love this book. Since they do not have the other editions in print (except for the first two) I now have them all on kindle and audible and I hope this series keeps going for years yet. It is so down to earth...


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the main charactor who is in every respect the 'everyman' who, rather than panicing or sinking to baser emotions, uses his common sense and basic logic to adapt and use what's available to him to overcome his circumstnce. BRILLIANT!!!


    Which character – as performed by Mark Boyett – was your favorite?

    I like the main charactor exspecially how he is portrayed by Boyett. He hits him right on the head. I like the way he portrays all of the chractors and how he makes the main charactor thoughtful and three diminsional.


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

    The story kept moving and did not stagnate. I loved the creation of the marine and the base cam.


    Any additional comments?

    This entire series is well worth the listen. If you like military sci-fi then you will LOVE THE STAR FORCE SERIES!!!!

    When he was 19, James Stark was considered to be one of the greatest natural magicians, a reputation that got him demon-snatched and sent downtown - to Hell - where he survived as a gladiator, a sideshow freak entertaining Satan's fallen angels. That was 11 years ago. Now, the hitman who goes only by Stark has escaped and is back in L.A. Armed with a fortune-telling coin, a black bone knife, and an infernal key, Stark is determined to destroy the magic circle.

    Would you listen to Sandman Slim again? Why?

    Absolutly I would listen to this again. This is a fantastic bok. Like a favorite movie you would watch again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sandman Slim. Richard cadrey had hi a nerve with the public with this series. Stark is the everyman and no man at the same time. He represents all the bad things that have happened to all of us but he has the ability and will to strike back and do something about it.
    Thee stories are so well written and and I LOVE HIS TURN OF PHRASE, WHITISISMS, AND ONE LINERS. Kadrey is very talented at this


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

    I love ther narrators ability in this series. In an industry of so many hum drum narator, he is exceptionaly talented. His a bility for inflextion and indivifual voices has made him one of my favorite

    James Stark, a.k.a. Sandman Slim, crawled out of Hell, took bloody revenge for his girlfriend’s murder, and saved the world along the way. After that, what do you do for an encore? You take a lousy job tracking down monsters for money. It’s a depressing gig, but it pays for your beer and cigarettes. But in L.A., things can always get worse. Like when Lucifer comes to town to supervise his movie biography and drafts Stark as his bodyguard.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Be careful when you tell someone to go to hell. They just may do it and be back.

    Exploding from the pages of Horror, Humor, and Heroes, Volume One - it’s the full length adventures of the one and only Mechani-Cal! So grab your battlesuit and prepare to get a little nasty.

    Would you listen to Confessions of a D-List Supervillain again? Why?

    This was a fantastic book I would definatly listen again.


    What other book might you compare Confessions of a D-List Supervillain to and why?

    In a way this was very similar to Soon I Will Be Invincable. Both take a hero universe unknown to us. It's Not DC. It's Not Marvel. It's unique and a great story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the author writes more like this.

    What fire bolt from the galactic dark shattered the Earth eons ago, and now hides in that remote cleft in the southwest U.S. known as Tyrannosaur Canyon?

    Peggy says: "A pleasure to listen to"
    "mediorcer story terrible choice for narrator"
    Overall

    The story was decent. far from great, barely reaching the level of good. The narrator had a great voice and performed older male voices well, and the prospector too, but every time he did the antagonist he was mimicking snidley whiplash. I could see him twirling his mustache. He absolutely sucked at British accents and some of the characters were English. Argggh! and to add insult to injury the author is interviewed at the end and pats himself on the back excessively, as well as pushing his personal views and condemning those who don't agree with his little view of the word. all in all a nearly sad experience. The only saving grace? The story was decent enough. nice twist on the dino DNA theme.
