The book is reasonably well written but the underlying premise is too weak. Our brave soldiers are cowed into submission by a shrill woman and must wait subserviently until she chooses to return or murder their crew.
Just too pitiful a premise but the action is fun.
Mixon really nailed this one. Some of what happened in book 3 left me feeling stagnant, but I am so in love with the characters and setting that I could not turn down reading book 4. This was a refreshing new situation for our characters, with some new people to interact with, and just a whole plethora of possibilities. I was on the edge of my seat the whole book, and I am pumped for book 5!
If you haven’t read book 1 ,2 and 3 then this WILL have spoilers but just know that this series is awesome and 100% worth your time !
Princess Kelsey Bandar and her half brother Jerad (or so they thought) have seen a lot over the last three books from Kelsey finding out that she is not her farther's biological daughter to her twin Brother trying to assassinate Jerad from half a galaxy away.Oh yeah they are also stuck in a part of the old Empire half a galaxy away with no way home ! No biggy .They got this way from setting out on an exploratory mission with Jerad in charge and Kelsey going along as an ambassador on his ship Athena .They went through a weak flip point ( sort of like a designated worm hole sort of thing I think.Its sort of like a stargate for all my fellow SG1 fans.Their being stuck and unable to get home is reminiscent of Stargate Universe actually but this series is original and very intricate .
Expect new discoveries in tech ,new and old friends and “Friends” . A very shocking turn where we meet"The Rebil Empire" and some fantastic new friends and wretched new and old enemys .Tragedy strikes in this book and its all a certain knuckle head's fault.I will give you a hint,its our petty rigid friend from the war games all the way back in book 1.But at the end of the book I cant help but think as tragic as it was that it served a perpous in the outcome of Ghosts of an Empire .I will wanr you that we do loose a crew member that I believe all of our hearts reached out to and I admit to sobbing like an idiot for about five minuets .Kelsey is just 90lb of awesome a super strong(not just physically) female lead and somebody I think a lot of people listening or reading will seriously look up to and enjoy.Jerad and Kelsey have to deal with fleet members from home and bring them up to speed on the situation.lets just say it is'nt smooth sailing....flying ...orbiting? they are in here here's a bit about Terry Mixon. He served as a non-commissioned officer in the United States Army 101st Airborne Division. He also worked alongside the flight controllers in the Mission Control Center at the NASA Johnson Space Center for almost two decades, supporting the Space Shuttle program, the International Space Station, and other human spaceflight projects during his tenure there.so think of all of that experience joined with a truly awesome imagination and a nack for top rate creative writing .them we have this series I am looking forward to the next book Paying the Price – Book Five of The Empire of Bones Saga!
Veronica Giguere the microphone maestro continues to do her thing and I grow more in awe of her talents as a narrator with every passing word I hear from her. She's on top form with this performance and I really get the impression that she has particularly enjoyed reading this series so far.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I was given book 3 and 4 and then bought books 1 and 2 because starting a series on book 3 would be rather confusing but I would happily have bought all 4 knowing how good these books are.
There are 7 book so far in this series and more from Terry that I hope will become available on Audible soon.
Terry Mixon's superb writing comes together once more with Veronica Giguere's excellent and characterful narration to continue this series. If you liked the others stop here and buy this one now.
This is part of a great series of books and I would really recommend that you start from the first book Empire of Bones: Book 1 of The Empire of Bones Saga.
I very much enjoyed my time listing to this book. The only problem with this book is the next one is not available on audible.co.uk. Must find out what happens next. I hope there is a lot more books in the future for this setting.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
