Publisher's Summary

From Drew Avera, author of The Dead Planet Series, comes an all-new space opera adventure!

The Greshian Empire has reached across the Alorian Galaxy, using its naval might to bring its enemies to their knees. Dead planets float in their wake as the empire fights to assert themselves as the supreme race. Ensign Brendle Quinn has spent five years loyally serving the Greshian Empire in their relentless quest to dominate the Alorian Galaxy. But as his ship decimates planet after planet, he finds his sympathies swinging towards their defeated enemies.

Sergeant Anki Paro, a Luthian Marine, has been anxiously awaiting the call to deploy. As the last line of defense against the crushing Greshian forces, she hopes the time has finally come where her world can stand against tyranny and protect the rest of the worlds in her sector of the Alorian Galaxy. As her path towards war draws near, Anki begins to notice a shift in balance as her society prepares itself for imminent destruction. Questions of misplaced loyalties lead her to wonder if the world she is trying to save has any real intentions of surviving. As Brendle and Anki's worlds collide, they find themselves in an unlikely alliance to try to stop the full might of the Greshian Empire before there's nothing left to fight for.

The Alorian Wars is a military science fiction series for fans of The Expanse, Star Trek, and Old Man's War. If you want a fast-paced space opera adventure then look no further, The Alorian Wars is here!

    "A book you can lose yourself in"

    Ok, I admit it, at first I was put off by the idea of a female narrator, but Rebecca Sternberg is perfect for this book. Her narration and inflection are perfect. I was totally able to lose myself in this story and can't wait to hear more from Free and Ms. Sternberg.

    "Interesting sci-fi story with good narration."
    Would you be willing to try another book from Drew Avera? Why or why not?

    Yes, I'm interested to see how the Alorian wars continues.


    Was Broken Worlds worth the listening time?

    Yes, but I found my attention wandering a few times on the technical stuff.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sci-fi and in particular space/alien sci-fi. I voluntarily reviewed this audiobook after receiving an advanced listeners copy.

    "An interesting space opera."

    A little bit of everything you want to read about in a space opera. A good read. I received this audiobook for free and voluntarily reviewed.

    "Intriguing characters and story"

    I haven't read space opera in a while, but received a free code from the author, so I figured I'd give this one a whirl.

    I really liked the characters of Anki and Brendel. They were believable and I hope to read more about them. I did feel the story was a trifle short, that things, especially at the end, progressed too quickly. But I was overall satisfied with the story.

    The narrator's presentation did underwhelm me, and at times, got in the way of my enjoyment of the story. Her way of speaking seemed somewhat forced and overly clipped and precise. Perhaps this was intentional due to the genre, and I'm more an urban fantasy reader and used to a more relaxed presentation in my audiobooks. 4 stars for story, 3 for performance, overall 3.5 stars.

    "Good story, read well with character's emotions "

    Interesting story, glad to have heard it. Imagine a Disney movie in an original space opera setting. If that appeals, you would probably enjoy the book or audio version. I did. Story is complete. It does not end with a cliff hanger.
    Reader does good job of projecting character's emotions, and reads very well. On the down side, and these are minor points, her voice does not change very much when conversing as either main character. One technical issue, you can sometimes hear reader's breathing between lines, which is mildly distracting.

    "ok read, starts slow but picks up"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Broken Worlds (The Alorian Wars #1) by Drew Avera was a free audio I won by responding to the author's newsletter on time. The first 20-25% was a bit slow but then it picked up. I liked the premise and the characters, the plot was good and it sounds like it might me a good series. The narrator spoke way too slow so I just upped the speed and it worked out perfect, so that wasn't a problem. Overall, it was an okay read considering the slow beginning and all. I am not going to give up on this author because I see great stories that can be had. I bought some stories and plan to give them a try. If it wasn't for the slow start I would have given this a star higher.


    What other book might you compare Broken Worlds to and why?

    speaks too slow, I had to speed it up


    Did Broken Worlds inspire you to do anything?

    I did buy more of his books, although this one was a 3 star book, I could see big potential

    "Review "

    I found the story very difficult to get into. It took until about chapter 10 for me to settle into it. Quite frankly it was not to my taste though it did vastly improve during the last third of the story which I did enjoy. That is not to say other readers might really enjoy it. I think they probably will if they are more in tune with this sort of story.

    "Quite Good"

    Quite good but didn't catch my imagination all the way through that i thought it would.
    Characters are quite appealing but i feel that there is something missing in the overall story or that perhaps we just haven't got there yet.
    Narrator is quite good although i must admit i do usually prefer a male voice.
    Overall the story is quite well written and works well if you like more of a story without lots of space battles. For me it didnt click but know that these stories can work quite well for a lot of people.

    This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review and as such is my own opinion.
