    "Another Great Book!"

    As with all of the books in the Star Force Saga Simply GREAT! Lots of action and great Narration. It did end short. We will just have to wait for the next book. Mr. Larson don't make us wait long!!!

    "Amazing"
    Where does Empire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the Best


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Empire?

    All of them, there is tension, suspense, action.
    I don't know whats gonna happen next.


    What about Mark Boyett’s performance did you like?

    Great voices, great line delivery! I am hypnotized to the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I can't get enough of this series, will re-listen again soon.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the fastest I've ever gone through an audio-book. How will it end?
    One of my Top-5 book series!

    Story
    "Another fantastic adventure - unbeatable series"
    If you could sum up Empire in three words, what would they be?

    fun, addicting, flawless


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Marvin - You just really never know what he is up to or what he is going to do.


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark Boyett does a fine job narrating, his voice is smooth and does not distract the listener.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a book/series that is very hard to put down, I finished it in two sittings.


    Any additional comments?

    This is book 6 and is not one you can read without reading the previous novels starting with book 1 Swarm. Science Fiction is not normally something I would get heavily involved in but this series has captivated since book one, hopefully book 7 Annihilation is released on Audible soon. If you are here reading these reviews then that means you are somewhat intrigued so do yourself a favor and start reading the series you won't be disappointed.

    What made the experience of listening to Empire the most enjoyable?

    The story line is tight and there is a steady diet of action.

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

    several - this one great

    Story
    "I'm losing all respect for Kyle Rigs"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Kyle Rigs is seriously starting to tick me off. I understand wanting to make a "human" character with "human" flaws, but this is getting ridiculous. His love triangle is getting old. His lying, cheating and manipulation of allies is getting old. His increasing lack of ethics is getting old. His lack of any strategic planning and awareness is getting old. The only thing not getting old is his attitude - it's becoming more and more juvenile.


    Do you think Empire needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Absolutely - this is an epic story - I just hope that in the future, we witness a return of a Kyle Rigs that we can once again respect.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark Boyett continues to do an excellent job with the narration. I would just suggest that he maintain a set distance from the mic (unless going for effect).

    Story
    "An awesome series!"
    What made the experience of listening to Empire the most enjoyable?

    The narrator, the stress of the conflicts, the aliens, the technology


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

    I guess the main character, as this story is in first person


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep


    Any additional comments?

    What's the deal with the REVERB added to the narrators voice in this one? It's new and it's ANNOYING. Kinda sounds like the guy is in a bathroom...

    Story - 3
    I found the book interesting as I am a fan of sci-fi/fantasy with space and aliens. I am not a great writer of reviews but the book itself had some parts that fascinated me with logistics and the survival of the main characters of the book, but it over time, would drag on in a diatribe or personal reflection of the mail characters. Now, sometimes these are not a problem in some books, but these tend to be a little more annoying than most.

    Narration - 3
    Now the book's narrator was ok (not great, not bad).

    Overall - 3
    I gave this a 3, as frankly, I consider this about an average story in its writing. The story line is probably a little better but some slow spots tend to drop it down a little.

    What did you love best about Empire?

    The creativity in Larson's writing never fails to be enjoyable!


    What does Mark Boyett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mark's narration brings the story to life. His delivery becomes as much a part of the book as any of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series! Some of the aspects can get a little out there but over all I really enjoy all of it!
