The Tyrell are a race that love to fight. The more difficult the fight, the better they like it. Every race they find is given the same level of technology and a specific amount of time to exploit it before the Tyrell come back looking for a fight. Humanity is warned by another alien species that the Tyrell are coming, and the race is on to build an Alliance of races strong enough to stand up against an empire whose expansion has been relentless.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Complete Thunder Series to be better than the print version?

I cannot say as I only do Audiobooks. Luke Daniels does a great job on the narraration though.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the idea of the alien race that loves to fight and provides the tools to other races so they can prepare for the upcoming battle.

Which scene was your favorite?

The final battle royale at the Tyrell homeworld.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes but not realistic for me. Though I did stop a book I was in the middle of just to listen to this one when it was released!

Any additional comments?

I am a fan of this author and his other works so have been waiting patiently for this series to come to Audiobooks. It is a pretty straight forward storyline without too many surprises, mostly point and counterpoint. Would have liked it if there was more to the story now that I am finished with it.

The Empire is a political entity that encompasses hundreds of colonized worlds united by a common language (Esperanto) and under a single individual, the Emperor. But the Empire is getting old and creaky. Its government is riddled with corruption and is choking on red tape. The Space Force is bloated with the incompetent who have risen to high rank due to nepotism and patronage. The Emperor has been assassinated, and the Empire is surrounded by alien races.

Where does Empire in Crisis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would have to say pretty high up. I am a fanboy of DAW and his other books so that makes me a little biased I suppose but this is a great story that I wish would continue.

What did you like best about this story?

The aliens and battles were great as usual. DAW does that really well. I really liked that added political intrigue in this.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

I have listened to him in a lot of books. He is really good and can do different accents well. I can also tell his feminine voices from his male voices pretty easily.

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

Nope, just good space opera, if only in one book.

Any additional comments?

Would like to see this story continue. There is lots of possibility here for much more.

The war may be over, but the fighting continues as SOLCOM learns of an excursion by the Ross'El against an unaffiliated prespace civilization in the no man's land between Earth and the Alien Alliance. With always more questions than answers, SOLCOM dispatches a ship to quietly survey the situation and determine what, if any, course of action is best. Captain Sorilla Aida and her team are the ground element assigned to the task.

I cannot get enough of this series. This book came out and I was done in two days. Now I have to wait who knows how long for the next one.
