One of Sci-Fi's Best

This book is the first of a Hall of Fame style series. William C. Dietz gives a text book lesson, in Legion of the Damned, on how to start off a sci-fi series that will define a career. Legion of the Damned not only successfully makes you buy into the main character and want more when the book concludes, but it also provides the depth of scope and color necessary to make the series outlast its main characters. It makes the story become about the world the author has created and the main characters your means of traversing that world and seeing the beauty of the imagination that is the author. His description of his characters and the world in which they live make you feel as if you are present, and his depictions of battle show a defined clarity in the process of laying out not only the combatants but also the desired direction of your interest. This diligent action allows the reader to buy into the story and thus creates a vested desire to see it to its conclusion. This is a book and a series that no serious sci-fi fan should be without.

The narration of this book by Donald Corren is superb. His characterization of the differant characters with his voice is done with a master's skill. This is not a simple narration, but as close to a reader's theater as you will find with a single narrator. His dedication to correctly dramatizing Dietz's work is truly admirable. It truly is the way this work should be presented. Donald Corren is to be commended for his accomplishment.

Worth the price of admission

Reminded me of the Robert A. Heinlein books I loved as a kid. A blend of techno-nerd science fiction and a good ole fashion inner-species love story. I was happy to see the series has many more volumes.Narration was comfortable and a good fit. I have just downloaded the next two books in the series and I am looking forward with optimism and anticipation to the continuation of a very satisfying book.
