Publisher's Summary

Death awaits the curious!

Out along the rim of the galaxy hangs a loose configuration of some 60 stars known as the Faustian Chain. This whorl of sparkling suns is rich in planets and occupies an irregular volume of space some 20 light years in diameter. From an external viewpoint, the Chain presents a colorful display of plasma-streams, luminous nebulae and sparkling pinpoints of light. The human colonists who settled the Chain were aware the region had recently been populated by other species - beings that had all but vanished after waging devastating wars thousands of years in the past. Little was known of them, but certain areas in which their artifacts still persisted were proscribed by interstellar law.

Mech: Zero is a novella by best-selling author B. V. Larson. Set at the beginning of the Imperium Series, this story is a prequel to the outbreak of war. The series involves early human colonies in a region of space previously occupied by a vicious alien species.

    "Nice Pre to the Mech saga"

    Nice short starter story, with cool Sci-fi. It should have been longer, but we'll see how Mech 1-4 is.B V Larson writes good books so far.

    "A good short story"

    Interesting enough to make me look up book two. There is only so much you can do in a short story, but I have fingers crossed that then next book is as good. (and a little longer)

    Story
    "No hero's here"

    This short story is the prequel to the Mech series. This story can be skipped. The narrator simply reads and he is clearly no actor. His reading skills are somewhat mechanical.

    The story has no heroes at all but a series of bumbling and arrogant fools who stumble into a positive outcome. I listened to the entire story. it is not worth paying for.

    Story
    "Easily entertained"
    What does Mirron Willis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I'm pretty sure I could have done a better job, but hopefully he did better when he recorded the other books of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this purely to see if I'd be interested in this story, and, as the headline says, I'm easily entertained, so I will be giving the series a chance. A reviewer of Mech 1 said that it needed a prologue, well this is it. The story, while not the best I've ever listened to - even just in this catagory - is still good enough for cheap enough that I feel this is a good introduction to a series.I'd be willing to give a chance to. My only real complaint is the narrator who sounds like he phoned in the performance, that is to say that it was very robotic and took some getting used to. More objectively the ratings should be:Overall: 4 starsPerformance: 3 starsStory: 4 starsbut I bumped my rating with hopes that the problems I had with this first installment might not be present in the full length novels, and, as previously stated, I am easily entertained.

    "Started off great"

    Story started strong but fizzled about halfway thru. I am still going to read the next book.

    "Interesting"

    So after listening to all 13 books from Larson's Star Force series, and the great acting to perfectly tune it, this book was a very short let down. The writing is good, and the depth of character was ok, but for me it lacked the fun of listening to his books. Mayne he struck gold with Star Force, and is coming back to reality. I hope not!

    "excellent!"

    A great book that'll keep you listening wherever you go.
    the story is fast pace and action filled and the narrator does the content justice.

    B.V Larsons sci fi is my absolute favourite listening material and I simply love his take on the monsters.

    "Not Impressed"

    One of the stupidest books I've ever forced myself to listen to. Disjointed plot and undeveloped characters. Should have returned it.
