Where does Empire in Crisis rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I listened to the Synchronicity War, also by Dietmar Wehr, and decided to download this one as well. Luke Daniels, who also narrates the Synchronicity War, is superb as always. While Empire in Crisis is not my favorite book of all time, it is a very satisfying book. There is the potential for a lead-in to a second book, but as a stand-alone novel, I would be happy leaving it where it is. This ranks in the top 5 out of the last 30 books I've read.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I think my favorite character is Emperor DeChastelaine. Don't be fooled by the title of 'Emperor', DeChastelaine is not an evil tyrant, nor is he incompetent. As far as leaders go, I quite like him. What makes him very interesting to me is how he deals with incompetent space force admirals and political intrigue.
What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?
Luke Daniels is one of my favorite narrators. Period. His voices are very unique--even between different book series, a feat I find to be quite impressive.
Any additional comments?
If you're looking for a repeat of the Synchronicity War, you won't find its looping chronology here. Empire in Crisis is, in my opinion, a good space battle between humans and aliens. Plus, there is governmental intrigue and conspiracy that the humans have to overcome before winning a war. If you're not sure where to spend your next credit, this is a safe buy as it will not force to you to wait for another book, nor will it leave you bored.

As space operas go, this was pretty good. Do some work on character development and interactions

Enjoyable listen, good narration: Lots of intrigue and action. It remains to be seen whether, if this continues into further books, the storyline’s momentum increases.
I will certainly buy a second book.
