Summary

Playing by the book? That's not how we do it!

In his attempt to delay his appearance in Emperor's court, Crown Prince Georg triggers an alien invasion of his own star system. The whole of the Empire watches the live broadcast with bated breath as his fleet battles the awesome invaders. The Iseyeks - gigantic sentient praying mantises - are suitably impressed too, so they promptly remind the Crown Prince of his allied duties. The Sector Eight Fleet hurries to the Swarm's aid...but sadly disregards the insects' hive mentality.

One of the best series I've picked up all Year!

Would you listen to Beyond Death again? Why?

yes, oh god yes. this book is a page turner. normally I just spend my monthly credits, but this series made me drop cash on this I needed to know what happen then and there.

What other book might you compare Beyond Death to and why?

N/A this is a rare Gem.

Have you listened to any of Neil Hellegers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

hey did a awesome job. I felt I was standing next to Crown Prince on the bridge of his ship, and not just driving my car.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Everything with the body guards. I love paporie de cotcha

Any additional comments?

Buy this book!

Book 1 and 2 in 6 days

I binged both book 1 and 2. These are absolutely engaging books. I enjoyed the world, the main character, and his entourage. The narrator is great, very consistent, and my thoughts are currently being narrated by him. Atamanov is a very talented author and now among my favorites for a guaranteed good time. I will be spending my credits whenever he releases a new book.

Michael atamanov writes some pretty cool character

this is another awesome book by Michael atamanov. if you enjoyed the other books written by him then you'll probably also enjoy this one. Neil Hellegers does an awesome job and narration as normal

hate or like

I enjoy this book but I hate it so much more. There is no way anybody could believe they are in a game. Ruslan is supposedly the greatest strategic genius in and out of the empire and hes getting owned by a drugged up idiot and the idiots slave. whats worse he doesnt even fight it. He could easily win through a variety of ways. Now im on the third book but hes still just getting slapped around like a little b*tch. How am i supposed to relate to a character that gets outsmarted by the equivalent of a homeless drug addict that also mind and body rapes him. Yet here I am listening to the third book....

Entertaining story and kept me wanting more.

Stopped listening halfway...I never do that.

The story is OK and the narration is pretty good, but that can't save the author's inability to create likeable or sympathetic characters. Some people blame the translator, and, yes, the translator seemed to focus on translating the Russian word-for-word, rather than trying to create a comfortable narrative. Even so, there didn't appear to be anything in the source material that turned the characters into real people. The women were particularly one-dimensional, with the character "Astra" being notably loathsome. She is a major twit, and the fact that the protagonist is so taken with her is one reason that the story is hard to bear.
