Publisher's Summary

Trapped between murderous xenophobes and calculating artificial intelligences, an interstellar war threatens to wash Princess Kelsey Bandar away in a tide of blood. 

With her most powerful ship crippled, only a desperate mission to steal what she needs right out from under the noses of her enemies offers a way to get her people safely home. 

As if that wasn’t hard enough, success requires her foes never learn of her existence and therein lies the problem. Few have ever accused Kelsey Bandar of subtlety. 

If you love military science fiction and grand adventure on a galaxy-spanning scale, grab Hidden Enemies and the rest of The Empire of Bones Saga today!

Making friends, enemies and finding key components

*I was given this free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Veronica holds one of the top spots in my book for narrators. She's amazing to listen to as she voices each character with a different voice, personality, tone, and life. And this is a large cast of characters to do that with. This makes it so much more enjoyable of a listen for me, keeping me drawn to the characters along with the emotion present in them. Always a great pleasure to listen to Veronica!

We are back with Kelsey!! Kelsey has become my favorite character in this series. She is like Wonder Woman with her implants. She's bold and smart. She usually has trouble finding her everywhere she goes. lol. Kelsey does make for an interesting adventure wherever she goes. Then there are those that are with her. I love the whole crew!

This book picks up with Kelsey again. I had to work my brain to remember where we left Kelsey as it was two books ago when we left her. Kelsey and her crew are in a sort of a pickle with where they are and a time frame that they have to work in as things are sparking in the universe. And they may have helped start the sparks with their actions.

This book continues with Terry's pattern of writing. We start the book with learning where we are and making friends, along with a few enemies. We start to see how things are on this planet and with our crew who needs help. Then when Kelsey and her crew make a move, it's with force and action. This brings the fighting and fast movement in the second half of the book.

It seems many planets and bands of people have the same idea. There are those that are tired of what the AI's and Singularity are doing to their people. We find groups that are ready to rebel. I love that if these fractions act on their own, the likelihood of survival is very tiny. But with Kelsey and Jared out in the universe visiting new planets, it brings a small flicker of hope that they just might be able to work together to win the war that's coming.

With each book I feel there is a bigger event coming. The more Kelsey or Jared interact with people in the universe, it feels they are growing alliances and finding people who will fight as well. I'm looking forward to when they all come together and the big battle for freedom happens.

This series is classified, in some venues, in Military Science Fiction. It's not a heavy military or science fiction read. There is so much interaction with the characters and the situations they find themselves in is what guides them to act. There is action and battles but the story is more. I would HIGHLY recommend the series to many people who enjoy space operas.

Enjoyable audiobook!

Good enjoyable audio book. I especially enjoy the reader although I noticed that she got her character voices mixed up a time or two!

Fantastic

I have become a fan of this series and I'm looking forward to the rest. The author did a fantastic job of drawing you into really caring about the characters and even the world he has created. The Narrator brought everything to life and kept me wanting to hear more. I received a free copy of the audio in return for an unbiased review.

Hidden Enemies The Saga Continues

I love this space opera. The characters are likeable, smart, and brave. Princess Kelsey Bandar is the main protagonist in the story. She finds herself on an alien planet and also fighting the evil empire. Like most space operas, this one has a cliff hanger. I like it because I know there is at least one more installment in the Empire Of Bones Saga. If you like rip roaring space adventures try Hidden Enemies. Listen to the series in order to enjoy the whole saga.
As usual Veronica Giguere did a great job. She truly brings the story to life.

The Story Continues

This is the ninth book in what has been a great space drama. You really should start at the beginning as a lot has happened and a lot is going on. This book is well written and I believe you could jump in and enjoy this series anywhere.

This has been a great series and continues to keep you engaged. But I wonder if maybe Terry is running out of ideas. Towards the end of this book, the soap opera went into extreme mode. Every few minutes some new drama was introduced... then the scene switched to another line until the next drama escalated... then the scene switched to the next group and repeat, over and over. The last hour or two was one new drama after another. I felt like I was watching a Soap Opera on prime time.
Don't get me wrong, it was an excellent story. I did feel the presentation of each new drama could have been handled better.

As usual Veronica did an awesome job with the narration. Each character was distinct and the pacing was perfect.

Can't wait till the next installment.

Good book

Way better than the last book. Keep it up and thank you. I still like Jared's character. I hope you don't leave him as a support.

Another great title from Terry Mixon.

Creative and entertaining. Terry Mixon continues to add the fresh and interesting content to Bones Saga. A clever plot and variety of characters made this book an overnight binge listen. I like Terry’s storytelling and just like his other books, I’m left wanting to read the next one.
I really enjoyed the plot. If you are new to series, start with the first book and enjoy the ride.

Good Military Sci-Fi

This story has love, action, a heist, loss, and really well written interpersonal relationships.

Terry Mixon does a great job of letting the story unfold through the characters as they move throughout the story themselves.

Veronica Giguere does a great job narrating the story with a variety of different voices as well as accents.

A Great Book in The Empire of Bones Saga

Princess Kelsey is probably one of my favorite sci-fi characters. She looks small and nonthreating but due to her marine raider implants she is tough as nails and one of the deadliest warriors around. I really enjoyed how she controlled every scene in the book and kept me wanting to listen to more. The story is pretty exciting and has some twist and turns and full of action. Definitely recommend a listen.

Consistently good

Terry Mixon has been very consistent with this series. He sets the tone for the book in the beginning and keeps the pace throughout the book in the action and the character development.
