Publisher's Summary

Battle-weary after a desperate fight to save Earth from the Drasin alien onslaught, Confederation Captain Eric Weston is tasked with a perilous new mission. He and the crew of the Odysseus must hunt down those who unleashed the hellish attack on his homeworld and that of Earth's Priminae allies.

But the situation turns dire when they catch sight of a ship belonging to the mysterious beings who orchestrate the fearsome Drasin's depredations. This powerful Empire, it seems, has two primary aims: to conquer new worlds and settle old scores. Weston's ultimate objective: keep humanity from becoming collateral damage as the Drasin war expands to engulf the galaxy.

    "Great story and narrator, but too short."

    I feel like this is the first half of the book that it should have been. It just got getting going and then it ended it felt like. The price was right though and looking forward to the next book soon.

    "Leaves You Wanting More!"

    Currie does a great job of blending hard science and fiction! He also tells a riveting story! I want to read more of his stuff.

    The narrator does the story justice, too!

    "Minimal substance in this book."

    Too much filler and build up before reaching an enjoyable conclusion, overall lacking in substance compared to previous releases in the series.

    "This book didn't advanced the storyline. "

    This was an enjoyable listen. My problem with it is it didn't really advance the story line at all.

    Story
    "Plodding towards the Drasin leash holders"

    Warrior King is Book 5 of Evan Currie's Odyssey one series. While Earth is still recovering, Eric Weston is tasked with going after the entity that had unleashed the Drasin. With a new class of starship, Weston explores the space beyond the Priminae and encounters the more aggressive human-like species that previously initiated the Drasin incursion. While the action is intense, there is little closure and mostly a setup for a longer story arc dealing with a clearly dangerous adversary that is hell bent on total domination.

    The sci-fi elements are confined to the same science from previous installments. There's a bit more background on the "evil" empire that has a rigid and ruthless hierarchy. At the same time, the Priminae are coming off as a sort of Quaker-like group that split off so long ago, that their own origins have morphed into mythology. The are regarded by the empire as technologically advanced, but totally pacifist. Earth's connections to these groups is still murky and remains to be revealed. Finally, the Gaia-like entities on both Earth and Rankel are briefly inserted. They and the Drasin are likely to play more prominent roles in future installments.

    The narration is rendered by the same individual from volume 4 which was a change fro the earlier versions. The performance is adequate, but not exceptional with a reasonable range of voices and gender distinction.

    Story
    "Weakest offering in Odyssey One series by far."

    To be brief, the narration is bad and the story is uncompelling. The book ends before anything of interest actually happens and the pace is glacial which is a big change from the other books in this series. Not sure I'll be moving forward with this series in the future which is a shame, it was so much fun through books 1-3.

    "Enjoyable"

    This is a logical progression from the previous books. Much less character development, good action, and a set up for the next listen.

    "Great series"

    Hope there is more to come, Evan Currie is one of my favorites, Odyssey One and Silver Wings run neck and neck for Story, Plot and Character. Keep them coming.

    "Simple but a bit short"

    Maybe I have been tainted by the last audio book that was 40hrs but at 8 this seemed very short. Great story narrator is ok . It would like a greater variation in the narration. Maybe you should do 2 episodes as the only logical choice at this point is for the earth to use the drasin to threaten the empire into MAD
