Publisher's Summary

The Empire

A tyranny stretching over thousands of worlds. The grand dreams of the founders are a joke. The Thousand Families, the rulers of the Empire, care nothing for anything save their own power. From the undercity of Earth to the new colonies at the Rim, discontent, anger, and rebellion seethe, but there is no hope of breaking the power of the Empire and freeing the trillions of enslaved humans and aliens.

The Rebel

Commander Colin Walker believed in the Empire until a treacherous superior officer betrayed him, forcing him to see the true nature of the force he served and his compliancy in terrible crimes. Now Colin has a plan: He and his followers in the Imperial Navy will seize their ships and rebel against the Thousand Families, uniting the thousands of rebel factions under his leadership. Their war will set the galaxy on fire.

    "Slow Burn"

    Slow start, but don’t let that put you off. Once I got into the book I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to Book 2

    "Pedestrian plot - not very interesting"

    narrator did a great job of keeping things interesting, but unfortunately the plot is missing intrigue and excitement.

    Story
    "A bit of a journey"

    Like any first of a series there is a lot of scene setting going on. As a result there's a tendency to over decorate. Hopefully, the future books will be leaner and have tighter storylines. After all of this the plot is good enough to sustain a longer arc.

    Story
    "An interesting but often repetitive story"

    Christopher G. Nuttall created a cast of characters from within the Imperial space navy born from old Earth and ruled by an aristocracy class having little concern for anyone who were not born into that class. Most of the officers in the navy owed their position and advancement hope to one of the great aristocratic houses and who didn't hesitate to exploit those of lower position to aid in their advancement; only to discard them once their usefulness was over. There was ample intrigue and betrayal which ultimately led to a rebellion. While the story itself was interesting, I found myself not really caring for any of the primary protagonists, even though some of them survived harmful mistreatment and some even unspeakable atrocities. On reflection, it is hard to say why but my thought is that the author seem to tell the characters successes and travails in somewhat of a matter-of-fact way.

    Even so, I did enjoy the novel and am leaning toward continuing with the next novel in the series.

    "A new story and a good start"

    The plot is interesting. It may take while to warm up to Collin, the main character. The author is making a great effort at building characters - he even builds characters who get killed on the the next page lol. Bringing in the concept of the family 'House' and the Thousand Family rule gives the story an interesting slant as well. Not sure about the narrator however. In some of the battles the author puts us in the heads of the Empire's fleet leader and the Rebel fleet leader and it gets a bit confusing - I had to replay that section a couple times to tell which side's Super Dreadnaught was blown up.
    The narrator doesn't excel at differentiating characters very well which contributes to the confusion.
    Even so, the story is enjoyable and off to a good start.

    "Another excellent story from Mr Nuttall!"

    I love and enjoy many of Mr Nuttalls series and always eagerly purchase them when available!

    The narrator was an interesting choice, I am always partial to Mr Kafer but this was a good fit.

    I look forward to the next in the series.

    "On the right track"

    Hope is still with us. Let the good guys win.
    This one is close but could be a little more positive. After all, if I wanted negative or all is lost stories, i'd be listening to current events.

    "Excellent."

    I stumbled across this thinking it was something else entirely. Bit I was more than pleasantly surprised by it. Nuttall isn't afraid to dive into the particulars of a revolution. You don't just blow up the death star and have a happy ending. He filled it with good characters that I could understand on a emotional and intellectual level.
    The narrator was really good to. I've never heard him before but great job.
    I'm all in on this series.

    Story
    "forgettable"

    I've listened to several books since this one, and I can tell you all about them, all except this one. I listened to the whole thing and it left no impression on me. It was probably okay, but certainly not a hum-dinger.

    The narration takes a while to get used to. Heller's voice is tight and high. After a couple hours it starts to feel right for the story, but it's just weird.

    I'm glad Nuttall is cranking out books in his so many series, but this one didn't do it for me.
