    "Being to drag the story out"

    I cannot help but think that they are now dragging the story out and filling pages with over the top individual internal dialog. When you actually review what actually happened in this book there wasn't much.

    I'm still enjoying the story but I think they need to start focusing on ending the story and not hanging around too long and undermining their good work.

    Story
    "A Slackening of the Pace"

    This series has felt like a delicious guilty pleasure for some time. The heady mix of special ops elite forces, imaginatively formed and described battle scenes and of course R.C. Bray’s urgent narration style have had me gripped pretty much from the start. This was the series that first opened my eyes to just how entertaining the zombie genre can be.

    It’s still a great series but to me this is the weakest book of the series so far. For at least the first two thirds of the book the main story moves very slowly as we jump between locales and characters. The good news is that all the main guys we’ve come to love are still there being the bad asses we’ve come to love them for but the bad news is that they’ve developed an increasing penchant for emotional flashbacks and introspection!

    This is still a good listen and there are some of the trademark action scenes and Special ops “toughness” as you would expect. It’s all urged on by R.C. Bray who delivers as well as in the other books but it doesn’t drive on in quite the same breathtaking way. In fact it gets going and then ends very abruptly right in the middle of the action. If it weren’t for the “preview” of the next book that is kindly included I would have been just a bit irritated at where this one ended.

    So, still a great and very well narrated series and I’ve already pre-ordered the next one. I just hope that it gets back to being as stellar as it has been up to now The way this one ended gives real hope for that.

    "Skip this and wait for the next, nothing happens"

    Like a terrible TV show, repeats of the previous books and flash backs. The book is written like a script for a TV show, drawn out with nothing being achieved. Leaves a terrible empty feeling.

    "Good book not sure if the story needs another plot"

    End of interest in the JFK ground plot. Might just need a break from listening to to many audio books over all good read and good value thus far

    Story
    "Almost didn't bother Book 7"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death of Empires to be better than the print version?

    Have not read print version, if the narrator is good you can't beat audio books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought the story was great and I like the shift and pick up of the storyline in the various locations. For good or bad the characters do feel like real people. I don't understand why some reviewers are complaining, this book is not slow, the pace is logical for the situations that are arising. I felt the story moved along well and was as thrilling as the others in the series.


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favourite?

    Ali the female Special Delta Operative


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I enjoy most of the books from Audible. I listen when I go to bed, I generally find them relaxing....The Arisen series is having the opposite effect and keeping me awake, I'm even sneaking off and listening during the day.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the most thrilling and enjoyable series of books I have listened to, the depth of the story and attention to detail is second to none. The authors have built a believable Zombie Apocaliptic World which I might survive in a bit longer if the worst ever happens now that I've read these books!

    "Arisen is back!!!"
    If you could sum up Death of Empires in three words, what would they be?

    Un F*CK!n Believable !


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Death of Empires?

    Movie Quotes


    Which character – as performed by R. C. Bray – was your favourite?

    Juice


    Any additional comments?

    I was so disappointed in the last book but now Arisen is back, fantastic story you don't know where it is going to go next, Russians, Zombies, Movie Quotes, more information on the origins on the Virus, this book packs a lot in and I really enjoyed it, happily purchased the rest of the series now.

    "Better than the previous book"
    Any additional comments?

    Having read all of the previous books its clear that the series fluctuates between being amazing and a bit poor. This book in my opinion is better than the previous one but not as good as some of the others. Its hopefully building up for a strong ending as this is fairly close to the last book.<br/><br/>There are some good scenes here and there but generally a lot of filler. The chapters at the end are the best and there is a good action scene at the very end. Still though, its slow paced up to that point and there is so much filler that Alpha team STILL haven't started their mission in Africa.... it feels like three books ago they were getting ready to start it.<br/><br/>The chapters with the battleships fighting were intense and pretty solid, I enjoyed them but they are also excellent examples of how everything in this series kind of just goes wrong several times until it would be nearly impossible to get out of it alive - and then someone will do the impossible and save the day last second.<br/><br/>Overall though, a pretty solid book but not near the standard of some of the previous books.

    "A slower pace"

    As far as this series goes, it's pretty awesome. I've breezed through the books just wanting the next, and the next, this one did have a much slower pacing, with some flashbacks, and I think that was okay. It can't all be so fast-paced, we as readers and listener do need a break.

    Great work as usual to both writers and of course, the narrator, he's been totally awesome throughout the whole series.

    What did you love best about Death of Empires?

    After reading all 6 titles previously in this series, it was nice to see some answers given, like how, why and where. Excellent. Enthusiastically waiting for the rest of the series.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    R.C. Bray is simply my fave narrator, incredible range with the different characters and performance is simply outstanding. Totally enjoyed the performance.

    This story grows on you and your connection continues to grow with the characters. Having several stories going on at the same time in several places makes this an edge of your seat kind of story. I can't wait for the next one!

    "Less zombies, more Russians."

    In book seven less fighting zombies and more fighting Russians. This book focuses more on the Russian threat, the Russian background concerning the virus, and the return to Fortress Britain and it's status in the war. We meet the creator of the virus as well. Lots of action, continued character development, and excellent build-up for the next book.
