Publisher's Summary

Mankind's outer colonies are disappearing. Without warning. Without a trace. Fleet command chalks the attacks up to pirates, but Captain Dryker of the UFC Johnston isn't buying it.

Defying command, he leads his misfit crew into hostile territory in search of answers. They encounter a technologically superior foe unlike anything humanity has ever seen, one bent on the destruction of all sentient life. After 26,000 years the mythical Void Wraith have returned to begin the next Eradication.

Humanity cannot stop them. Not without help. Captain Dryker's only hope is to forge an alliance with mankind's greatest enemy, the savage Tigris.

One maverick captain, an unlikely crew, and an aging vessel are all that stand between humanity and the Eradication.

    "New sf author brillant"
    Would you listen to Destroyer again? Why?

    Yes the author has a greate feel for keeping the action going wanting the reader/listener keen to ear more


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Destroyer?

    Commander Nolans maturing into responsibility


    Have you listened to any of Ryan Kennard Burke’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    For a first science fiction novel this author has got it right for those who like to listen to space opera type novels. The action was pretty well continuous from start to finish with lots of openings left over for continuation in the second novel of the trilogy leaving the listener wanting more. I cannot wait for the next novel in the series to be published and hopefully be available on Audible. Bring it on I cannot wait.

    "Fast paced fun!"
    What did you like most about Destroyer?

    The pace. Once it got started there was no stopping this story. There was plenty of oportunities for the author to bog me down with infortmation about the tech and the characters but he didn't. My eyes (ears ;() didn't glaze over once.
    The characters were so much fun to tag along with on their finger-nail biting adventure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Space marines! Who knew?


    What does Ryan Kennard Burke bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His narration was superb. He brought all the character to life - not just with their accents but with there own indevidual tone and tempo - in a way that I would not have managed to do in my own head.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Are you the enemy?
    Dun dun duuuuuuunn!!!!! ;)


    Any additional comments?

    Fantastic! I only picked this to listen to because I was getting ready to scream if I listened to something else (I am working my way through a series and seriously needed a rest) and having read the authors non-fiction books I thought I would give this a try. Honestly, I didn't expect to like it. I was pleasently suprised and I can't wait to dive into the next book when it is released.
    I think I may have just found a new genre to go and explore. :)

    "very very good first start to a series"

    the story was excellent and moved along at a very good pace. the author got his point across and never bogged down with useless "Fluf". I can't wait to hear the next book...

    "Exciting Story"

    Fun, fast read with enough science to keep it interesting, but it couldn't be called hard scifi. Great characters, Nolan is a relatable guy, and I like the Tigris. In some ways they're like Klingons from Star Trek. Destroyer is action/adventure focused with some good battle scenes. Can't wait to download book 2.

    What did you love best about Destroyer?

    Hmm, I'm not sure. It's such an interesting and unique story...I really love the Tigris. They're so fierce and yet they purr...it's great!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's really hard to pick just one...Fizgig, not a clue if that's spelled right, is great. I also love Annie, Captain Dryker, Sargent Hanan...


    What about Ryan Kennard Burke’s performance did you like?

    I think he does a great job with less traditional story lines and I love when he does the recap the Chris Fox has at the beginning of his books...he really great at capturing the humor from the writer...


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

    Not a clue...I leave that to the boys and girls who make the big bucks...


    Any additional comments?

    I'm NOT a SciFi fan, but I am REALLY enjoying this series...I definitely recommend it and anything else by this author and the narrator too.

    All I can say is...more please...ASAP!!

    "Solid Space Marine Fun"

    Chris fox did an amazing feat of writing, churning out this book in less than one month for all to see (on YouTube). I think he did a great job and I really enjoyed the book.

    "Has everything i love about military sci-fi"

    Love it! Listened to it over the course of two days, usually i try to stretch out a story so I can listen to it while i walk for exercise.

    The story was good, each chapter had a small or big cliffhanger, the narration was terrific.

    It had space battles, hand to hand combat in the corridors of the ships, alien vs. human, planetside combat, political intrigue, exploration of an ancient culture.

    And similar to a JJ Abrams or Clive Cussler story, each time a question was answered it seemed to open the door to a new and more intriguing question, some of which will have to be answered in the next book :)

    "returned"

    Couldn't buy the physics. Small vessels that ram moving ships to penetrate the hull and disgorge a boarding party that somehow didn't get turned into jelly? Flying through an asteroid field so thick a ship is constantly dodging rocks, in the enormity of space? A kinetic projectile that is used to blast pieces of an asteroid off to create secondary projectiles with which to destroy an enemy ship, instead of being used directly? Had to return it.

    "Fascinating paradox "

    This book is a fascinating paradox. The action is so nonstop that it is hard to put down. But at the same time the reader has to check his brain at the door 🚪. Much of the physics of the book are so impossible that you have to constantly ignore the absurd science and physics to enjoy the book. Yet In spite of it all I'm looking for the next book.
