Publisher's Summary

A new form of alien, a human feudal society and an army of mech rebels clash in the fourth story of the Mech series.

Ignis Glace is a war-torn world of fire and ice. Tidally-locked to its tiny red sun, one side of the planet bakes while the other side is forever frozen. Known as Sunside and Nightside, these two wastelands are bordered by a narrow inhabitable region known as Twilight. Humans and mechs battle for control of their world, even while a third player approaches the game: the Skaintz Imperium. Once the aliens strike, no world is ever the same.

    Story
    "One Big Victory, One Small Planet?"
    If you could sum up Mech 3: The Empress in three words, what would they be?

    Teamwork always Wins


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mech 3: The Empress?

    The Sacrafice of the two that are one


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

    Great depth of character interpretations and a voice that can hold a listener to a story like the great James Earl Jones and Morgan Freeman.


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

    What makes us Human


    Any additional comments?

    I want to see a MECH 4!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Story
    "Man! Epic book 3."

    I feel like this book could almost stand on its own. I really liked this story, quite a few things from the previous books get tied together. The aliens are even nastier if that's possible.

    Story
    "Narration was distracting"

    The story was typical BV Larson and entertaining enough. However, the narration on this book (and the other two books in the series) has a multitude of mispronounced words throughout which I find very distracting. The first two books were not as bad as this one...but after finishing this book, I had to call out the distracting nature of the mispronunciations in this narration. Some examples include: "acuator" instead of "actuator"....."silver" instead of "sliver"...there were many more such mis-reads that changed the meaning of some of the sentences. He pronounced "cache" computer memory as "cash-ay". Computer cache memory is actually pronounced "cash". Other mispronunciations include "strenth" instead of "strength", "hants" instead of "hints", "chassises" (plural) instead of "chassis" (singular), "brazingly" instead of "brazenly", etc. There were many other examples throughout the book.

    Also, compared to the narration of Mark Boyett (narrator of other BV Larson books), this recording is harder to understand and has a strange tone to it as if the narrator is talking to me through a long tube.

    On a positive note, the narrator's performance of character voices was very well done. However, the mispronunciations and poor tone (EQ) of the recording only allow 2 stars for the narration performance.

    Story
    "excellent"

    A great book that'll keep you listening wherever you go.
    the story is fast pace and action filled and the narrator does the content justice.

    B.V Larsons sci fi is my absolute favourite listening material and I simply love his take on the monsters.

    Story
    "A conclusion to the series?"

    I for one hope not as I have enjoyed yet another compelling series of books by B.V.Larson. I await with baited breath the release of his next book no matter if it is a continuation of this or one of the other set of stories, or sets out to introduce a new collection of characters. I have an insatiable appetite for the style of writing and the genre of SCI FI. In the mean time I must now look elsewhere as I have exhausted the current bibliography of B.V.Larson's audio collection.
