This book surprised me

I had looked into getting this book more than once in the past but never bit the bullet. When an opportunity arose to review it, here at Audiobookreviewer dot com, I took it. The term Science-Fantasy jumped out at me as I am an avid fan of fantasy. Though I do only dabble in Sci-Fi I’ve always really enjoyed the genre and have wanted to experiment with the melding of the two. Vincent Trigili does a pretty good job of doing it.

This story focuses on Vydor. A young officer in the Imperial Navy who gets signed on to a mission that is all but suicidal, by the emperor himself. He is granted a ship, the Black Talon, and a squad of Dark Knights, the best warriors in the Empire. Upon arrival to their destination they were attacked by a group of Magi, the very people they were sent to find. The Magi over powered Vydor and the Dark Knights. Only Vydor made it out alive despite the help of the Black Adders, a group of black ops group thought dead. Soon after, the Black Adders meet a mysterious man names Mantis. Mantis tells the tale of a war between Wizards and Sorcerers and the sad truth that the Adders universe is being dragged in and it’s up to them to stop it.

This book surprised me. It started off very slow, it was mostly mediocre dialogue the first half of the book, most of it relevant and some not. Right around halfway through it really got interesting. The first bit of combat erupted and the story started to unfold alot quicker. Introducing new powers, conspiracies, and hidden agendas that surprise and will change Vydor’s life forever. My only real complaint about the story is everything falls into place almost too easily, with people agreeing without question and immediately. Seems too easy. The story is really cool, however the story telling leaves a little to be wanted.

The narrator of the book is Jack De Golia. This was the first I’ve listened to his work. His production quality was very good, no background noise, breathing, or any other real distractions. His reading was a little slow and choppy. I got past this by speeding up the playback speed to 1.2x. On the other hand, he did a very good job creating voices that are easily identifiable with their respecting characters and consistent throughout. I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to others work by him.

I say give it a try. It has a good price tag, especially when utilized with the whispersync feature. Plus, it’s a fun mix of fantasy and Sci-Fi. From space ship and Ensign, to telepathy and magic wands, Mr. Trigili has you covered.

So good i brought it twice!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Enemy of an Enemy to be better than the print version?

Yes, only because the characters and planets have some crazy names and I enjoy hearing them read out loud. :)


What other book might you compare The Enemy of an Enemy to and why?

The other lost tales series books, each one gets better and better!


What does Jack de Golia bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does an amazing job bringing a ton of emotions to his reading, which enriches the whole story experience.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Harry potter meets star trek lol...... or magical wizards, other worldly creatures, adventures and battles combine to bring you the ultimate sci-fi adventure


Any additional comments?

I purchased the paper copy of this book a few years ago and loved it, so I was so excited to see they were creating an audio version. I just had to buy it again, and it doesn't disappoint Jack does a great job reading it with such enthusiasm and emotions it really brings the story to a whole new level! You need to get this book you won't be disappointed it's filled with sci-fi action and magical adventures that will make wish you where there.
