Summary

Professor X, the X-Men's founder and mentor, and Shi'ar Empress Lilandra have been forced to love each other from afar - he has to remain on Earth to lead the X-Men, and she must stay with the Shi'ar to run the empire. Now, Lilandra must turn to the X-Men for help against a threat to her domain - and possibly the Earth as well. Shi'ar scientists have learned of a creature that devours galaxies and is heading toward Shi'ar space.

Beset by a panicking people and by several assassination attempts, Lilandra calls upon the X-Men for their assistance, for the galaxy-eater will target Earth next - but the price for stopping the galaxy-eater may be higher than the X-Men expect. They must use a device that increases their powers a thousandfold to drive the creature back, a process that could destroy them - or make them insane with power!

Boring

I never understand why a comic book is more centered on the drama than on action. I understand the reason behind the storyline's build up, but to be centered on the drama with little action is inexcusable.. if the book is 10 hours I'd say about 1 hour or less had to do with fighting. this is a nongraphic novel. This should have tons of action. I am disappointed. the narrator wasnt bad, but the vocal range is limited. her accent for Gambit was ok. the rest was meh. I've listened to some novels where the narrator didnt even have to say who was speaking and I knew who it was. this one, i was glad there was something written for her to read to let us know who was speaking.

Horrible

This book was hard to listen to and the plot was dull. The narrator changed the name of the beginning character. You can't tell who's talking and where the ONLY action scene starts or stops. The only reason why its 1 star was because Professer X shows slight emotion. Other then that the book was like watching grass grow.
