Excellent series

I can only say that I’m sad that the series has ended but it has brought hours upon hours of enjoyment both with the writing and the narration. I’m looking forward to the next chapters in the kg universe. Michael and Emily you both did outstanding jobs

good, shrink the series

I loved the series. I felt , however that it could've been done in fewer books. I'm not saying make the books shorter by cutting material. The books could've been combined into longer books. 7 1/2 hours was very short.

Incredible merger.

The melding of the various story lines was seamless. Once again, Michael has outdone himself.
Kudos to Emily Beresford on handling the various different character voices. She is a fantastic talent.

Better than when I first read the book!

Wow! The last book of the original series! I figured I would be down after finishing, having to say a mental good bye to the series that totally changed my reading habits. I've spent the last few years reading and rereading these books.
I first read this book, from start to finish within 24 hours of it first been published. I use to read a fairly large group of different authors, often reading 4 or 5 books a week, that increased to 7 to 10 books a well over the past 30 years after a disability's silver lining was MORE TIME TO READ MORE BOOKS. And Kindle Unlimited gave me the means to explore more books and to discover a love for new genres!
But when I first picked up my first KGU book all that changed! Over the past few years, I haven't read many book that weren't affiliated with Michael Anderle. then a few months ago, my sister introduced me to the fun of "rereading" these books, again, on Audible. I was hooked after hearing Emily Beresford read the first book of the series, "Death Becomes Her".
I had been reading mostly Urban Fantasy and Paranormal books with a little Space Operas and Basic Fantasy for about a year when Amazon first recommended these books to me. I was immediately hooked on the unique mixture of genres and the was Micheal Anderle introduced the truth of where the paranormal world came from. Giving the credit to an allied race rather than mythology or other fantasy beginnings or not angering that question at all in their stories.
Then I discovered the joys of listening to Ms Beresford take the story, i she's is the voice I now here in my mind when I read a Bethany Ann book. She is Bethany Ann! Her voice conveys the straight forward, no nonsense personally of the character. While some of the voices she put to some characters had at first surprised me, but after a moment's thought I realized she had nailed ever one of the character and hey talent of giving voice to the individuals were the result of her coming to know the characters. I especially loved the voices of TOM and Adam!
Plus although I have read all these books many times, the experience of having parts that I may of overlooked or forgot, come to life and often had me laughing out loud again, even louder than the first time I'd read it.
I put off listening to this book until after I got the Dark Messiah series, knowing I would enjoy it more that way.
Although this is the last of the series that I have read repeatedly, in-between taking in the many other books written in this fascinating World that Michael Anderle created. if you haven't read this series, I highly recommend taking the plunge and join in with all the other days who are devoted to everything associated with Mr Anderle. And if you haven't tried any of the spinoffs, give them a try! Not only has Michael Anderle written some spell bonding books himself, but he has chosen authors, all of which have the talent of glueing the reader to the electronic pages from the start until you read the last word of the authors notes. Speaking of authors notes, this is another unique, perk of reading has and his fellow writers books. I won't say that he's the first one to write a note at the end of the book but he is the first writer who had done it in quite the same style. as an avid reader, I have followed my favorites and even meet a couple over the years (50 years to be exact since I read my first adult fiction at the age of 12, and started my "addiction" to primarily historical romances that began with the popular Gothic romances if the time.) Yet, after who knows how many thousands of books that were read over those 50 years, Michael Anderle is the first author that not only made me feel appreciated but also included me the reader, in a way that felt personal, in this awesome journey from wiring his first book to becoming a best seller on Amazon and changing so many lives for the better, along the way. This demonstration of his appreciation of his Readers continues as he takes the time to read his authors notes himself, includes us in the fun of his interactions with his fellow authors (especially El Leigh Clark), and his joining his friends on his Facebook pages.
Now I'm excited to go on to listen to Ms Beresford, once more, bring Bethany Ann and Michael to life (I love his "vampire" accent. makes me wonder if he had been the influence for all the vampire movies in Mr Anderle's KGU world?). I've been enjoying the Kurtherian End Game as I tried to catch up on my TBR list. Listening to these and other books in this universe, was a tremendous help during a hospital stay and the resulting recovery. I guess you could say I've become hooked on listening to these books on audible! I had other books for years that is pick up here and there. But I can honestly say that most didn't have the magnetic talent to get me to listen to them except maybe when driving. now, thanks to Ms Beresford and Michael Anderle, along with my Alexa Echo Devices, I can listen to my favorite author as I do my chores, enjoy my meals, and even in bed before I go to sleep. Keep up the great work, it's really not supporting to see the many books in his universes show up on Amazon beat sellers list! Now I'm doing in to the first of the End Game books on audio. can't wait until I hear Emily Beresford bring the new characters that were talked about in this book(don't want to give a spoiler of this book). To the outstanding talent both visual in the credits and those behind the scenes who all work to make these best selling books come to life written on our Kindles and then brought to life in our audible apps, keep up the good work and the talent you are s-o-o-o known for . . . and continue to provide us with the awesome entertainment that keeps coming at the a rate that provides something new to sink our teeth into and satisfies out hunger for really good escapist literature!

Big project 21 books. lots of holes to fill.

This story line can have another 40 books just filling in the side storied of the cast of characters.
Some great scifi toys, some new some new spin on the usual scifi toys. all good.

Can you say adventures of TEAM BMW?

Not the world class writing or in depth discovery of humanity of heavy hitters of SciFi. But it was a fun ride needing a B.A.N. monthly fix of mayhem .
and if i can find Emily's previois narrations prior to this series... I'll give it a spin.
I didn't get the time jumping of the last 2 books.
almost like some chapters where misplaced between the 2.
If you like the last 20 books..D'uh... you'll like this one.
Thank you both for a endless hours fun.

Wrap ups and New Beginnings

*Some spoilers* All the individual series arcs are wrapped up as the Empire moves into the shadows. Bethany Anne, the General, Team BMW, and top advisors work to decommission the Empire without giving up any advantages. The team creates the Universe’s biggest shell game to hide the Annex Gate and multiple dreadnaughts.
Her top people decide whether they’re coming with to Earth, or retiring. She says her farewells to the Federation, and special insiders. Barnabas, Stephen, Jennifer choose their paths. I’m assuming the rest that are unspecified are staying with BA. Gabrielle settles up with Richard and Samuel.
The Earth bound team deploys the special satellite and mine protection system to keep the rest of the universe from attacking the home planet.
Bethany Anne reunites with Michael with surprising and life-changing results. Michael & sidekicks, Akio, Yuko, Eve, Boris, Terry Henry, Char & crew all join the Empire in space.
A surprise guest stows away on one of the mine ships.
It’s been an enjoyable ride, and I’m looking forward to Bethany Anne’s next series arc as life changes and moves on, but the goal to hunt the 7 continues.
Beresford rocks as the voice of the series.
