I was taken a back by this book. The narrator is spectacular and the story even more intriguing. I had to immediately reactivate my subscription to listen to to next one!
Absolutely loved this book and look forward to the next book in the series. Love both author and narrator.
Love the plot and I loved the descriptors and character development. So so good I cant wait to listen to book 2. The narrator was very good. I hope the second book is read by the same person.
awesome story awesome narrator
It was good to hear
In spite of fine narration, I cannot recommend “The Phoenix Conspiracy.” I found the story ridiculous, and sometimes disgusting, with many credibility issues. Improbable images include “blood-soaked ground” aboard a starship and a drugged drink delivered via French kiss. Yech! The characters are NOT inspiring. Language and terminology are flawed. In addition, the author fails to grasp basic physics or to appreciate movement through three dimensions. I feel no urge to listen to the second volume of this series.
It started well, but degenerated into a kindergarten fight which could have been set in any scene. The science part was less believable, narration was good
Great storyline and well read, went looking for the second book not free yet.
The narrator bored me to tears. It was enough that every other chapter the volume would fluctuate. The cadence and energy used to deliver self reflecting moments, to subtle physical details of the ship, to bullets whizzing by and the panic of a ship about to self destruct.. All the same. Meh.
Great story can not wait for the next in series
Looking for the next one now.
it was great!
I liked the way it held attention as the story developed. Good narration.
Great book. Suspenseful and well written. Reminded me of Thrawn books
if only he could describe in more detail how the female characters looked.... and that she obviously was handed her career on a silver platter...
I could not continue with this apparently (only because I could not make it further than 30 minutes) sexist narrative.
I enjoy the book. normally I'm not interested in mystery books but this one was very compelling
Great book I’m reading the next instalment now!
narration was excellent. story good but felt it wordy in places.
Great story line and outstanding narration, clear, easy to follow, good emotional narration, very easy to listen to considering. Can\'t wait to listen to Volume 2, \"The Phoenix is Rising\". I hope they use the same narrator.
The book was better than precived.
I found the book very enjoyable and love the plot that the author has gone with
Brilliant story, awesome narrator, listened to it twice.
I loved it. Can't wait for the next one.
I like the story as it is developing with good characters and storyline. The narrator is very good also as he worked the voices of the characters.
It was a good book
What a great book!
Been through all 7 books now. This is the epic start of a great tale
Basic writing in this book, it feels more written for younger teens. The narrator isn't bad, but when you're used to god tier narrators games workshop' Black Library use (Toby Longworth, Johnathan keeble) you kind of can't listen to anything else without being put of. Now I'm stuck in a rut where I can't listen to anything that isn't by the above two narrators.
Book starts better, gets worse. I may try the second but the narrator can't make the book any better, I don't even think the two narrators above could make it any better, that said they probably could make it at least more enjoyable to listen to.
The book and the narration was addictive for me. Lots of action and energy. Everything was done so well, I plan to listen to the entire series.
the book is great there unfortunately was not much talk of the science of the drives the ships use and I kinda wish there was a bit more history of the universe but that's just the nerd in me as for the story it was very well written and the narrator was fantastic how he brought the characters to life
Great book! Suspenseful kept me on the edge of my seat. Can’t wait to hear the rest of the series and hope the series is done by the same narrator.
Great story if you
LOVE tropes. The book starts out superb but then peters out. Trope 1: beautiful women are totally irresistible. Truth: beautiful women are hated by women and are avoided by men, especially in areas of power. Trope 2: Women who are hated as bitches, liars, betrayers, order-loving, will be unavoidably loved. Truth: They will remain hated and kicked out at the first opportunity. Plus there were many more. I listened to the entire book and wondered why anyone would eant to follow a drug-addled, immature, dangerous fool of a officer, who is mutinous against their entire government. He never said his reasoning. Ahh, shere rubbish.
Great and detailed book, kept me up all night
Much of personal interactions are awkward and forced. There is a romance element that is put of place and done poorly. The scene in ing the lead female chrarter and the lead male character was cringe inducing. Matters involving the military did not ring true at some key points in the story. The mutiny section of the book was not exciting, and read as list of all the thins that can happen during a mutiny. I listened to this book because I was interested in how much of a train wreck it would become. There is more, but this is enough for this review. It is good that the author has a day job as a lawyer.
First book good start 4
A fully enjoyable Audio. The narrator is super. The story well told with many twists and turns. The characters were well developed, especially the main character with all his charms and faults. I especially admired his insistence to find the truth, whatever.
Will I continue on with the next book?
Maybe… hmmm, I would like to find out how the story goes on, but I was mostly interested in the main character, so it depends on whether he continues to be the main character or not.
The narrator is absolutley fantastic! He makes this engaging space adventure a real joy to listen to.
Enjoyed this book and narrative was awesome
I enjoyed the book emencely. I will read more as my coin builds up. Ty for the read
After an hour, I couldn't keep listening. I thought the character development needed work. Their dialog was uninteresting--approaching stereotypical. The science was weak and the narration was mechanical.
I think it was a decent book
This was my first experience trying audiobooks and I couldn't be more surprised! The narrator gives the story, which is very intriguing and detailed, some sort of magic that you can see everything that is happening right in front of your eyes. So so so so so goooooooooood!!!!!
It started out interesting but then you realize non of the characters are really likeable. I really was done after the crew member who is already established as being an experienced warrior who bus happy to break rules acts dumb and ridiculous while hacking a computer. Then the captain falls for obvious trick. I’m not sure how this is a series. Awful writing.
little confusing at first but it's got to be pretty good
Great story and narrator. Can’t wait to start book 2.
Very good nice and long can’t wait for the next one
For me, it seems as narrator made this read come to life. The author created very well told outlook at possible futuristic battles to preserve human life.
This is awesome I loved it
Action and mystery, with engaging, flawed characters. Sci-fi at it's best.
superb book. can't wait to read the next episode.
The narrator was good, but The book was boring, predictable, The characters 1 dimentional, behaving very uncharacteristic and generally in a unbelievable fashion. The view of how a woman thinks and feels is archaic and this seems to be written by someone that has not conversed with women at a deeper level.
Very good narrator and story.
Wish to continue listen to the rest of the book.
An awesome story and story teller
This book was absolutely gripping. However, the reading by the narrator made this story come to life. I found myself finding it difficult to pause, and bookmark.
Great narration, great story, cant wait to get into the rest of the series. A
I liked the plot very much. I found, at times, the dialogue to be a bit like dialogue found in a young adult book. It could have been written with a more mature perspective.
Interesting. A good listen if you like this style. Moving onto the 2nd.
Just an awesome story. It's a real brain teaser something to get you thinking.
Fantastic narration and great story.
I cant believe this book was free, definitely hooked on the series now
I am intrigued by this story. I will check out the next book... because I am not sure if this is a slow build to the series or just a slow burning writer.
Good read loved it
