Publisher's Summary

A thousand years ago, an alien invasion set humanity back to the Iron Age. Slowly, we recovered, colonizing the Solar System in peace. And discovered that an unknown force is stopping us from exploring any farther. But before the cause can be discovered, a slow-burning conspiracy threatens to explode into System-wide war. With enemies at home and in the darkness beyond, a team of unlikely heroes-a janitor, a mercenary, an asteroid miner, and a pirate-are the only ones who can avert a second apocalypse. This set includes the first three books of the newly-finished REBEL STARS series.

1000 Years After the Breakers What Happened?

Big fan of both Ray Chase and Edward W. Robertson, having enjoyed all 9 books in the Breakers Series, so I looked forward to these books carrying the saga forward. I know that 1000 years had passed so all the characters from the Breakers would be long dead but these books took awhile to get going. It seemed like the most interesting and important thing that happened in all three of these books occurred right at the end of the 3rd book, the return of the Swimmers and the introduction of a 2nd alien species. Which creatures (spoiler alert) we never get to meet in any way because we get caught up in some corporate space wars.
True, Robertson had to establish a whole new set of worlds and characters, (which he did with the Locker with its gangs and military spacers and the hive with its young genius billionaire and techno nerds) but that took three books to accomplish. So maybe we get to meet the new aliens and find out why they don't want us traveling beyond the solar system in book 3?
I certainly hope so, and that audible will get the issues with further books in the series resolved.
As always, kudos for the fierce, powerful female characters and the totally cool with that and equally interesting male characters.
I guess I'm spoiled by Robertson's incredible feat of creating the Breakers amazing journey and I miss those guys! In any case, this mild disappointment won't keep me from reading more Robertson or from downloading book 3 if it becomes available for audible and in the mean time starting on the 3rd series of Robertson books available here.
BTW Ray Chase is the perfect reader for these books. All the characters are given unique voices. His energy rises and falls with the action. He's always got good pronunciation and genius understanding of how the lines should read. In 12 books, there's only one place where I would have read the line differently. Plus his female voices sound female without sounding like imitation women. Big fan!

Enjoyed the inclusion of a complete Rada backstory

After ordering this, I quickly realized that I had previously purchased Books 1&2 of this series. While I could have requested a refund, I decided to listen to Book 0, Rebel, based on the strength of Edward W. Robertson's writing skills and enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue to listen to books 1&2 and forget the refund, it was that good.

If you haven't listened to this series previously, I highly recommend it if you are interested in s skillfully written and engaging story and having the pleasure of a top-tier narrator in Ray Chase performance.

excellent narration great space opera

loved the narrator's performance he lent real depth to the characters

thi should become a classic in our genre as it explores key issues of modern life and a supposed life in the greater solar system. there is enough science in it to get your "what if" glands pumping and just the right blend of plot twust and turns to keep it interesting. well worth it

Solidly Okay

The story itself was acceptable, large scale (technically), but the story did not manage to convey that. The narrator struggled with certain voices, but he certainly tried. The narrative flow was pretty consistent but not amazingly surprising. It was alright.

I wish the other books were recorded already

I enjoyed the books but kept finding it frustrating that the later books have not been recorded yet. I know the author is working on it, but I am lacking in patience.

I love Ray Chase But...

I listened to less than a minute of the book. There is no way I could listen to that Alien voice for 20 hrs.
All I could think about was "Someone please give this guy some oxygen and a glass of water."

Pretty good, I'd keep reading

Overall, I enjoyed the books. At times, the story dragged a bit, but it was generally entertaining. Ray Chase did a good job voicing characters, although some of the younger characters' voices were difficult to distinguish at times. And I was confused by why he chose to narrate all of the text (even things not being spoken by the characters) in the alien voice when he read sections about aliens. But good overall!

I loved it

The way it's written allows the story to play smooth in my head. Perfect Narrator too! I love the story of Sid and Kansas.
