Publisher's Summary

Warrior. Slave. Survivor. Emperor.

As a crumbling Galactic Republic falls to the relentless assault of a merciless foe, so begins the rise of an enigmatic emperor intent on saving a corrupt galaxy-spanning civilization from itself… and from something much darker that lies beyond the reaches of the known.

Just as the reins of power fall into his iron-fisted grasp, an assassination attempt by a hidden cabal within his own inner circle jeopardizes every plan he has set in motion for his Dark Legion, his Imperial Navy, and his ultimate conquest of the stars. But the assassins have no idea who they are actually dealing with…or what he has become.

Imperator is a darkly heroic epic that spans the boundaries of time, space, friendship, and one man’s quest for a power that never should have been found.

fascinating story but hard to keep engaged

characters were hard to really engage with and love, but concepts were interesting. i did struggle to keep listening at times and had quite a few gaps in time between listens. i do like the concepts and ideas in it, but the execution wasnt quite right.

Imperator

The only book I didn’t finish. I marked this as finished because I couldn’t listen anymore. R C Bray was on point as usual but I did not like the story line at all. I’m disappointed as I really like the series. Just hope book 4 will bring back the entertainment

A long background sory about a name

Not the best in series, in fact, might have put me off continuing series altogether

love galaxys edge

I basically fell in love with the galaxys edge series if the author can read this your series is like a mix of star wars and warhammer 40k, of both universes that I have read a lot into and I find myself craving more from the universe of the legion, tyrus rechs, wraith, and all of it. it's a perfect mix for vets who have seen combat and love sci-fi and science fantasy

This third book was a really great read. With some profound revelations that made sense about a lot of things leading up to the “present”

Fascinating new addition to the Galaxy’s Edge.

A must for all who love Galaxy’s Edge series. And anyone into deep personal exploration of psyche and soul and powers that be.

This book is a stunning piece of art.

I will tell you nothing, you will simply have to listen to this gem of a book and allow yourself to be taken into the not to distant future and then to the many eons beyond that.

What a Galaxy

I've been really enjoying the stories set in this ever expanding world. When taken with the other stories, it has become difficult to pick out who the Bad Guy/Entity of the Universe is. This audiobook adds some wonderful background to a up and coming character, it fleshes out the Universe more, and it helps explain the.. hmm.. psionics? I don't know. In any case, its a good listen, had a tough time breaking away from it. I'm looking forward to more of these side stories.

Solid Back Story

Good addition to the Galaxy’s Edge series. It left me wanting to start the next installation in the series right away. If you want to understand the Goth Sulus jump in and enjoy.

Superb Sci-Fi storytelling!

I am so excited for the next book! These guys are making me very happy! I want more and more. I hope the next book is 64 hours long. I love the different perspectives and timelines. They delve into their characters and infuse them with a robustness that takes your imagination on a fast paced action packed adventure. It’s is dark, sometimes creepy but also appears solid and fact based. Keep weaving this galactic tapestry, please. Thank you to R.C.,your voice helps bring this universe to life for me. You are one of my favorite narrators.

Not in Line with the rest of the series

Your opinion may vary.
This book wasn't as good to me as the rest of the series. The flash backs, and the forwards. It was to much to follow.
Normally Jason Anspach, Nick Cole are easy to follow. I drive quite a bit and the books are my release from the real world. I don't want to have to follow to closely. So for me, it was meh...
Again, others might love it. I was just almost satisfied.
R.C. Bray's performance was again spectacular. I almost always just search for his name as a narrator, and get the book. I will be more careful.

Never have I had full support for a "Villain" of a story. felt bad for some. agreed somewhat with others. But this one. This one I fully support, great tragic story full of pain and determination. FOR THE EMPEROR!!!

At the begning I was very against the "magic", but

But this book explained it and made aquring it seem so insurmountable that it turned my view on the powers. I still prefer the moments when it's just mundanes, but now I atleast don't hate the scenes where "magic" is utlized

A brilliant homage to star wars with it's own spin

it's star wars if Lucas had been Tarantino. So much more engaging than anything Disney has done with Space opera in years. The homage to star wars is brilliant with sometimes cliched but always fun books, this being a great back story to a key player or two.

I want more of this series, it has great potential to be the space opera we have been after for years.

It up and I the standards of the first 3 books.

Found this going all over the place and it didn’t feel no where as good as the last 3 books...saying that it’s a must listen to as it’s got a lot of back story which fills in the blanks.

Unfortunately not what I expected

Really disappointed in this book.
Summary and sample sounded promising with unmistakable (and maybe to many) Star Wars-esk inspired characters.

The story did start out well, but unfortunately around half-way through, it just started droning on and on... Making little sense and the constant jumping between time periods only added to the growing confusion.

Eventually got so annoyed and bored with the main characters, I simply stopped listening.
