    Description

    Battle-weary after a desperate fight to save Earth from the Drasin alien onslaught, Confederation Captain Eric Weston is tasked with a perilous new mission. He and the crew of the Odysseus must hunt down those who unleashed the hellish attack on his homeworld and that of Earth's Priminae allies.

    But the situation turns dire when they catch sight of a ship belonging to the mysterious beings who orchestrate the fearsome Drasin's depredations. This powerful Empire, it seems, has two primary aims: to conquer new worlds and settle old scores. Weston's ultimate objective: keep humanity from becoming collateral damage as the Drasin war expands to engulf the galaxy.

    The story was fine but the narration didn't fit.

    Any additional comments?

    The story was fine but I would have enjoyed it more if it wouln't have been for the narration.

    Plodding towards the Drasin leash holders

    Warrior King is Book 5 of Evan Currie's Odyssey one series. While Earth is still recovering, Eric Weston is tasked with going after the entity that had unleashed the Drasin. With a new class of starship, Weston explores the space beyond the Priminae and encounters the more aggressive human-like species that previously initiated the Drasin incursion. While the action is intense, there is little closure and mostly a setup for a longer story arc dealing with a clearly dangerous adversary that is hell bent on total domination.

    The sci-fi elements are confined to the same science from previous installments. There's a bit more background on the "evil" empire that has a rigid and ruthless hierarchy. At the same time, the Priminae are coming off as a sort of Quaker-like group that split off so long ago, that their own origins have morphed into mythology. The are regarded by the empire as technologically advanced, but totally pacifist. Earth's connections to these groups is still murky and remains to be revealed. Finally, the Gaia-like entities on both Earth and Rankel are briefly inserted. They and the Drasin are likely to play more prominent roles in future installments.

    The narration is rendered by the same individual from volume 4 which was a change fro the earlier versions. The performance is adequate, but not exceptional with a reasonable range of voices and gender distinction.

    Great story and narrator, but too short.

    I feel like this is the first half of the book that it should have been. It just got getting going and then it ended it felt like. The price was right though and looking forward to the next book soon.

    Leaves You Wanting More!

    Currie does a great job of blending hard science and fiction! He also tells a riveting story! I want to read more of his stuff.

    The narrator does the story justice, too!

    Minimal substance in this book.

    Too much filler and build up before reaching an enjoyable conclusion, overall lacking in substance compared to previous releases in the series.

    What was that?

    I'm not sure how to review this. It seemed to have some good parts, but nothing ever tied together and there was zero story progression. You can sum up the entire book as "some people in space ships saw some other people in space ships and shot at each other, but weren't sure who they were."

    Weakest offering in Odyssey One series by far.

    To be brief, the narration is bad and the story is uncompelling. The book ends before anything of interest actually happens and the pace is glacial which is a big change from the other books in this series. Not sure I'll be moving forward with this series in the future which is a shame, it was so much fun through books 1-3.

    This book didn't advanced the storyline.

    This was an enjoyable listen. My problem with it is it didn't really advance the story line at all.

    Was für eine Blamage !

    Was genau hätte man an Warrior King noch verbessern können?

    Die Story ist in jeder Minute vorhersehbar und die Charakter machen keinerlei Anstalten neue Facetten zu zeigen. Der Plot ist zäh und stellenweise xtrem langweilig da wie oben genannt vorhersehbar. Bitte mehr Twists und eine mehr lockere Storyline und vor allem Karakterbildung !!!

    Würden Sie sich wieder etwas von Evan Currie anhören?

    Immer wieder

    Wie hätte das Hörbuch besser vorgetragen werden können?

    Sorry aber das war ein kompletter Fehlgriff !
    Ein neuer Sprecher/in sollte unbedingt die Basics beherschen ! Die verschiedenen Charakter hören sich fast gleich an und die Stimme an sich sich ist zum einschlafen gut geeignet. Ein mehr energischer Vortrag der auch mal aus sich herausgeht ist bei diesem Material absolut angebracht, die Kampfszenen wurde gelangweilt vorgetragen !!

    Sie mochten dieses Buch nicht ... Haben Sie vielleicht irgendwelche rettenden Maßnahmen dafür?

    Da so ziemlich alles falsch gemacht wurde ist ein kompletter Neustart/Konzeption fürs nachste Buch ein absolute Notwendigkeit. Bitte undbedingt Karakterbildung fortsetzen und die Geschichte weiterentwickeln, die ganzen Kampfszenen sind so verhersehbar das es ein Grauß ist sich da durchzuhören.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    Ohne die vorherigen Bücher ist dieses nicht zu geniessen bzw. vergällt es einem die Lust die ersten 4 sehr sehr guten Titel zu lesen !
