This is one of those books where the narrator is painfully slow in carefully ENOUNCIATING each syllable. it's extremely hard on the ear. you can literally hear every intake of breath between lines a lot of the time. honestly sounds like a guy with athsma.

The offspring of the Watchers (and their human mates) were what the bible calls "giants" or "Nephilim." These half-humans/half-fallen-angel hybrids were extremely wicked, and began eating everything and everybody! This is the reason, some scholars say, for God's sending the flood of Noah. Additionally, The Book of the Watchers outlines how these fallen angels corrupted mankind by teaching them forbidden knowledge of weapon-making, sorcery, witchcraft, astrology, and other forbidden technologies.

I have a serious problem with how this literal revenge domination story is set up. the male hero is a Mary Sue. the background story makes no sense at all and the fact that a woman would be put into this insane position. Knowing full well how much danger she's in she still finds pleasure?! really? plus even though this soldier spent so much time planning this revenge trip he apparently never bothered checking if his target had a sister that might accidentally get caught in this. this story is a mysoganistic Fantasy.

As the Imperium of Mankind spreads across the galaxy, bringing all of humanity into its embrace, the advance is spearheaded by the primarchs, superhuman sons of the immortal Emperor. Each of these heroes is a warrior born and a leader bred, but darkness lurks in the hearts of some and threatens to tear apart all that they have worked to build. This audio drama anthology contains three full-cast tales, starring the primarchs Konrad Curze, better known as the sinister Night Haunter, and Perturabo, the Lord of Iron.

excellent all star voice performances and effects and brilliant writing. the stories give insights into some of the darkest aspects of the primarchs, notebly Puturabo and and of course Kurze. And the story with malcador is at turns touching and the chilling as he discribes the Emperor's grand plan to a dieing friend. Kurze gets a absolutely chilling SFX treatment.

basically the Best of TOS combined with classic James Bond and a bit of Men in black. unfortunately while everything else is excellent the story is in abridged form and sliced into three parts which I find dishonest. this is why I give it three Stars overall.

One hundred years ago, 4 crewmembers of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ crossed the dimensional barrier and found a mirror image of their own universe, populated by nightmare duplicates of their shipmates. Barely able to escape with their lives, they returned, thankful that the accident which had brought them there could not be duplicated...or so they thought. But now the scientists of that empire have found a doorway into our universe. Their plan is to destroy from within, to replace a Federation Starship with one of their own.
