Publisher's Summary

The world is at war. Government titans use sports heroes known as Centauri for political influence.

Meanwhile, warriors from another time, known as Archides, are backed into a corner. The man who brought down their galaxy-spanning empire is taking advantage of the turmoil and threatens to conquer this world as he did their ancient home.

Oryan Jeckstadt is born a slave. His father, a disgraced general, raises him alone in the prison he doomed his son to. With the promise of securing his father’s freedom, Oryan is ripped from the Quarter and forced into the Centauri Games.

Eleysa Celeste has been orphaned. Loving grandparents do their best, but her anger is only flamed by the cruelty of the children around her. A local Centauri training facility owner takes her under his wing. She and Oryan are on a crash course that could decide the fate of billions.

Desperate for victory, the Archides try to recruit Oryan to their cause, yet his only desire is to protect the woman he loves and their young son.

5 books for 1 credit! Exciting sci-fi story

This is a great series. Five books for one credit is a steal. The story is exciting, well-paced, and enjoyable to listen to. The characters are well developed. It has some classic sci-fi themes with some fresh ideas as well as some unexpected twists that keep you guessing. The narration does a fantastic job setting the mood, building the suspense and excitement, and communication the emotions of the story. Definitely worth your time.

Wow!

I read tru this series on the weekend and was amazed of it. Some times its hard to start another book afterwords because the last book had another level of writing and character telling. This was amazing even if it was a bit dark and sometimes a bit obvious, But one of the better Military Sci-fi sagas you will get for this price!

Please find another narrator... please!

All I’m going to say is the story might have potential. I can’t tell you exactly how much potential because I couldn’t get past 15 minutes of that terrible... terrible voice.

this narrator is terrible good story though

the cadence in The voice of the narrator makes us really hard to listen to. also he over pronounces words and every time he does it it makes me cringe.

Epic Series Burroughs & Bradley sprinkled together

I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It was filled with real characters, real emotions and drew me in from the start. Odom appears to be be channel Edgar Rice Burroughs (Barroom Series) with his sweeping landscapes and a world close to our, but just a little different. Scott Hart did a wonderful job with the narration and you feel these characters. Look close and you will see Ray Bradbury lurking in his prose.

I read the entire series and then jumped to Audiobook... worth every penny and the time invested. I highly recommend this series. You won't be disappointed. WARNING: There are MANY places where you will not be able to shut this off so make a big pot of coffee and enjoy

Wonderfully complicated

The world is at war but there is a much greater danger that they don't even realize. Warriors from another time and place, the Archides have been protecting humans from a threat that once destroyed their own planet. Now the monster has his eyes set on conquering this world. Oryan Jeckstadt has been born into this fight. A slave turned Centauri turned soldier now is the final hope for their savior. He will fight. He will not lose. He made a promise to the love of his life, Celeste to protect their son and keep him safe. If he has to destroy everyone along the way, he will not break his promise.

This is a complicated, well thought out series. Intensity. Intrigue. Intelligence. The writing is solid, the detailing elaborate. It doesn't always go the way it's expected or the way you want it to. The descriptions are so vivid, that you take Oryan's journey with him. You are on the dusty stage of the Centauri, the bloody battlefields, and enjoying the much too brief times with Celeste and Asher. I will warn you, this series requires your full attention or it can become confusing. The names are unusual and complicated.

Scott Hart gives this series life. I can't imagine it without his narration. The music adds another level of drama and combined with his voice, it's easy to get swept away by this wonderfully complicated series.

Awful

I won’t get into details but I can’t see how this series ever got more than a two star review. I honestly don’t think that the people who gave it five stars know what a good story is. Just finishing this series was painful. Save your credits and find something else to spend them on.
