Star Kingdom Omnibus: Star Kingdom, Book 1-3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Star Kingdom Omnibus contains Books 1-3 of the Star Kingdom series.
It is a time of treachery, terrorism, and tyranny in the Star Kingdom. The king cannot be trusted, the galaxy is on the brink of war, and a notorious mercenary is destroying everything - and everyone - in his path on his quest for vengeance.
The Star Kingdom is in dire need of heroes.
What it gets is a band of misfits and underdogs:
A washed-up bounty hunter struggling to make ends meet.
A genetically engineered cat woman on the run from her makers.
A robotics professor who gets space sick before leaving orbit.
A brilliant scientist who’s better at punching people than talking to them.
As unlikely as it seems, this motley crew is the best hope for bringing peace to the galaxy. But they have troubles of their own, and they’ll have to fly fast to avoid being hunted down and killed.
A romping science fiction adventure for fans of Star Wars and Firefly!

I am a great fan of Lindsay Buroker’s writing and I have read most of her other stuff (including books she published under her pen name Ruby Lionsdrake) and I loved most of it and liked the rest well enough. I think I was not really all that keen on this series as sci-fi/space opera is not really my preferred genre; I am more into UF (see her Death Before Dragon series). Also, I wasn’t really convinced by her lead characters, a geeky robotics professor with an unimpressive physique and health issues and his neurodivergent bacteriologist room-mate/best friend, or the hodgepodge of other characters, including a sentient spaceship and its aging, sarcastic captain. But I finally broke down and gave the series a try and then couldn’t stop reading every free minute until I had finished the whole saga. I not only loved all the characters despite (or rather because of) their short-comings, especially antagonist/anti-hero Tenebris Rache, who remains quite an ambiguous character throughout, but I was kept on the edge of my seat by all the plot twists and unexpected events. The series combines different genres like Sci-Fi, adventure story, revenge tale (even romance) and draws on and references popular culture icons such as Star Wars and Terminator.
The story is told from the perspectives of different characters, and I loved how dexterously the author wove the various narrative strands together. I was also impressed on how Lindsay Buroker unobtrusively raises and debates philosophical questions like nature vs. nurture, diversity, good leadership/good government, the role/importance of science, etc.; I am going to explore some of those themes more in depth in reviews for some of the individual books…
Note: The narration by Fred Berman is really great; I loved how he gave all the characters a different voice!

Very interesting characters, the 2 main characters are very unusual and keep the story fresh as they handle situations differently than a more mainstream ‘hero’. A good plot that develops well over the course of the series and keeps the reader engaged. Some of the books are quite long which is good, especially as these are on KU at the time of writing this review and KU books are often quite short.
I have read loads of Lindsays other stuff and I really enjoyed it all. However Lindsay generally has a little too much focus on the ‘romance’ parts of the story for my personal taste. I am sure loads of people enjoy the romance but it is a bit much for me. I usually get through the romance with a few eye-rolls and enjoy the rest of the book, but I would definitely prefer less.
This set of books lay off the romance a quite a bit. There is some romance but it feels balanced and in context and I didn’t end up rolling my eyes and skipping a few pages as has happened in the past. I usually strongly recommend Lindsays stuff, but with a bit less romance this series gets an even stronger recommendation.
If you like your sci-fi without the romance – this is definitely for you.
