For a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights brought peace and order to the Galactic Republic, aided by their connection to the mystical energy field known as the Force. But they were betrayed - and the entire galaxy has paid the price. It is the Age of the Empire. Now Emperor Palpatine, once Chancellor of the Republic and secretly a Sith follower of the dark side of the Force, has brought his own peace and order to the galaxy. Peace through brutal repression, and order through increasing control of his subjects’ lives.

I was wondering if this would be consistent with the other stories in the Star Wars universe,shouldn't have worried. The new characters were intriguing and the story was entertaining and enjoyable. Once again Mark Thompson has done a fantastic job with the portrayal of the different characters voices, he makes the different characters come to life.

The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting...

What a great listen. I enjoyed this story so much I had to listen without stopping. Reminds me of Heinlein,Piper and Chris Bunch mixed together with a dash of David Sherman &Dan Cragg . Military sci-fi at it's best. Already preordered the next two books. If you enjoy this genre then treat yourself to a great listen.

Great performance by a wonderful cast. Once I started it was almost impossible to stop.
Another great job by Mr. Hubbard and Audible. I highly recommend this selection.

Boldly go to times where no one has gone before. While transporting a contraband Russian time machine and developmental weaponry, Private Everett Dumphee finds himself cast into new settings when the device suddenly activates. What follows are fantastic high-tech experiences that might be called the ultimate off-road adventure. For the determined Dumphee - narrowly escaping with his life and three beautiful women - it is not necessarily a matter of will he make his destination, but when. These four vivid characters trek through this fun and fast-moving journey like there's no tomorrow. Wherever that may be.

This was the best audible book I have listened to. Dave Wolverton has done a great job with Hubbard's story. I will be looking for more like this. The voice charactrizations and background sounds make for a most enjoyable experience. Thank you Audible.
