WOW!!!

I've read the books numerous times. Actually, I reread them every time a new book is published. While reading them myself is best, these audible books are great.
Once again, great job Terry!!!

Classic Sci-Fi in the best sense of the genre

This is an omnibus volume with the first three books of the saga. It is followed by an included short story that comes with a spoiler warning - do not read the short before book 4 which is not included in this set?
I really enjoyed this saga and will certainly look into getting more volumes.
Well written and narrated. Thanks Terry and Veronica!

A fun space opera!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a great space opera. It's a bit formulaic, but it was well executed. This was a lot of fun to listen to. The narrator was engaging and the 26 hours flew by. I was a little confused by the short story at the end that follows book 4, chronologically, that isn't included in this volume set. I actually stopped when I heard the spoiler warning until I can listen to book 4.

Classic sci-fi

I received a free copy of this book from the author / narrator / publisher in exchange for an unbiased review.

Earlier, I had read book 3 and 4 of the series without reading the first two books. Thus, I was feeling a disconnect, even though those books were good on their own too. But now that I received this omnibus edition for review, I read from the start of this series and then book 3 and 4 made so much more sense and were that much more entertaining.

If you like classic sci-fi stories and space opera, you should give this series a try. The series starts strong and keeps going strong. There is hardly any boring chapter in the books. it held my attention through out and was a very entertaining read.

The narrator does a great job too.

Too long, too much time on trivia

While I would complement the author on an intelligent story without many plot holes, there's just too much time spent on trivia. These books could be much less bulk and much more action. We really don't want to know every comma and period in every conversation between every major character.

Enjoyed It.

I really like the story but do not like the reader. Her voice is too high for the multiple characters. And for Kelsey I really hate how she sounds. But again the story is good. I will continue to read the series.

26 hours.......a solid buy and a ok story

I liked the first parts far better than the last parts. Spoiler....once the little sister takes over it is on a slow downward glide slope. I will pass on additional books, but this 3 book set is worth the credit.

Interesting book. Good plot. Painful narration.

If you could sum up The Empire of Bones Saga, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

Interesting likable characters

What did you like best about this story?

The development of the characters an the emphasis on tech.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

My only issue is with the narration. it is stiff, choppy, occasional background noise from the sound booth and at times a bit frustrating with the voice changes. I am not faulting the voice actor but I think it needed better direction.

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

No.

Any additional comments?

I like the series and will continue with it. Was a bit hard to get into the flow in the beginning but once I invested in the characters it became hard to hit stop.

Amazing Series

I have found this series to embody some of the things I most love about space opera. Granted, space marines aren't one of my top choices in sci-fi reading, but Mixon has nailed the genre for me. Book 1 of the series introduces one of the very best character plot twists I have ever come across. Book 2 continues the discovery and weaving of plot cables, and book 3 has the most infuriating antagonist I've come across in Mixon's work.

I can't help but think it's brilliant that he added in a short story after these first three books. And that the short story actually takes place after book 4. He DOES give a spoiler alert to that fact, so if you spoil book 4 for yourself, that's on you. But it's a great incentive to go ahead and get book 4. As if I needed one.

I will be seeing this series to its end. I have to know what happens to Jared and Kelsey!
