Great Military/Space Sci-Fi

I thought this was a very good example of superior science fiction writing. The universe created by the author was interesting, well explained, and not too complex. The characters all seemed very real and the storyline and general concept were all great.

The story takes place hundreds of years after the fall of the Terran Empire to the rebel forces. Using kinetic strike and EMP weapons, the rebels destroyed nearly every planet in the empire, knocking them back centuries technologically. The son of the then emperor escaped to a distant resort planet called Avalon. It was here that the large population and now emperor rebuilt their civilization and began to expand once again.
The new Terran Empire now inhabits dozens of systems, having absorbed the populations of other planets, some of whom had regressed all the way back to hunter/gatherer societies. Finally ready to explore far beyond their borders, the Emperor orders a long-range reconnaissance mission into the old empire. Leading the mission is his half-son as captain of the lead ship, and his daughter (second in line to the throne) as a diplomatic representative should they encounter other spacefaring civilizations.
The reconnaissance mission uses a newly discovered "flip point" to travel to a far away system, but soon discovers that their path home is unusable. When they discover a long-adrift old empire warship, they are confused by some of the things they find. After making contact with another post-empire civilization trapped in their own system, the New Terran Empire encounters what could be a dangerous new (or old) foe, one that the New Terran Empire is unprepared for.

The narration was overall very good. Great pace, tone, voices, etc.

I was very happy with this book. I thought it was a great example of space/military science fiction. I would definitely recommend for fans of the genre.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Empire Of Bones

What made the experience of listening to Empire of Bones the most enjoyable?

A fast paced romp across the stars from Terry Mixon,. It is to Mr Mixon's credit that I enjoyed the book as thoroughly as I did, as yes, while I'm a big ol' sci-fi geek, I'm less John Ringo, more Douglas Adams. I'm wildly ambivalent when it comes to military fiction as well, but these hang ups disappeared the deeper I dug into Empire of Bones. Interesting story
