very well written and performed

good books, very easy to listen to and follow the plot. if it was not an omnibus, I guess the individual books may have been of somewhat lower content/price ratio against similar titles, but as it is - very good listening for not very much money.

Generic

The main problem with this book was that a number of plot twists were recognisable from other books/films of the same genre - which loses the originality feel. Other than that the characters were fine and it is a lighthearted listen,

Loved the books

I have to say I loved this and even got butterflies in my tummy in the epilogue of book 3. Now I HAVE to get the rest because I need to know what happens.

Space chickens, futuristic-mushroom eating- hippy, an android, a doctor/monk on a mission, a security officer dreaming of being a galactic sauce superstar who's running away from the space mob, a lesbian mechanic and a captain just trying to find her daughter. It's brilliant!!

The only fault I can find is the narrator. Unfortunately there really isn't much in the way of character distinction which can get VERY confusing. Also she has a weird way of emphasising parts of a sentence that sometimes you think there is more to come and sometimes it's as though she's just cut off... Very strange. Thankfully the story is strong enough to keep you going.

Good but not for me

Any additional comments?

Other reviewers compared it to Fire Fly guess I should have listened as never really took to that show.

Fallen Empire has good characters and story behind it. But developments in story move to slow for my liking. On book 3 of Omnibus and none of the individual stories for each character progressed much.

Will give FE this, the characters personalities are clear, so you will know who you like, hate or and trust by then.

EXCELLENT. WELL WRITTEN AND PERFORMED

Fantastic space opera. I love the protagonists. Lots of action and a little romance thrown in. Alisa, the fighter pilot of the Alliance and Leonidas, the cyborg colonel of the empire had to work together to get to their goals. Along the way they have to escape from their enemies. A very well written series with witty dialogue , intrigues and politics in the mix. A boxed set of 3 books is really worth the credit. I will be continuing book 4 and I hope book 5 will come out soon.

Not too bad

it was a pretty good story but don't expect too too much, humor was a little corny. if there's more books after these 3 books I might listen to those as well.

An easy listen and enjoyable writing style

I really liked the story, the narrator, and her writing style. Just good solid storytelling. I will buy more as I need to see how this turns out, I do wish the upgrade that ship they are flying around in, it sounds like it's a pile of junk :-)

One thing I liked about the characters, they are all flawed....

LOVED to pieces.

Where does A Fallen Empire Omnibus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of my top listens.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love them all? I love Mica for her realism (or pessimism) and because she is badass. I love Alisa because she's also badass but is optimistic. I love Leonidis because he's badass but also caring.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Pirates.

Any additional comments?

Lindsay Buroker has a way with writing. It has great banter, intense scenes, and makes the characters come alive. This series is amazing, just like the rest of her books. I look forward to listening to all of her books. ALSO! The narrator is fabulous! She is perfect for Alisa and all the other characters.
