RED ZONE-DEAD EYE & GRAVE YARD were great. Mutant file was incredible. Christina Delaine has my vote for best narrator. She was able to move between characters all the while giving the impression that there were other people narrating with her. It was great. Keep it up Bill/Christina.

What made this series special to me was the fact that I live in the pacific NW, South sound area around McChord AFB. It was great being able to know landmarks that Bill was referring to. It gave me more excitement and feeling more involved in the story. The premise of our satellite probe, Voyager, pointing the way to earth was a little frightening. The characters were great, the story was great. The outcome of EarthRise was especially pleasing. One other thing though, the narrator probably should have done some additional research on how to pronounce some of the cities and locations. There are a number of towns and cities in this neck of the woods that have some very challenging names. Great job Bill.

If you could sum up Bones of Empire in three words, what would they be?

Jack Cato - WOW

What did you like best about this story?

Bill's ability to move seamlessly from scene to scene and never miss a beat.

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

There were a number of WAY-TO-GO moments for both Jack and CeCe. The ending was especially touching and a little emotional. CeCe's love for Jack and Jacks love for CeCe and all she went through for him was masterfully developed. Way to go Bill.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great series and recommend it highly

What does Christian Rummel and Jack Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Listening and using ones imagination seems to be is a lost art. I can listen at any time or any place. Can't do that with print. I get more involved with the story when I listen. I prefer dramatized books but when the narrator(s) read and present the story while creating the persona of not just the main character but other important characters as well I "feel" the story better and become more excited as it unfolds. It's easy to close a book but with an audio book you don't have to. Go Captain John "Black Jack" Geary. Mr Rummel has a great ability to create other totally different individual characters when he's narrating. Great job.

This is the first time I listened to an audio book. I was expecting a boring read but was delited when I discovered multiple voices to represent the characters. I would have like a few low key sound effects though just to spice it up a little more. All in all I thought it was great.
