To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I listened to this book, and the three books before this one in the series, on Audible and I just had to leave a review here as well!
I am so 100% invested in this series. Even the sad parts can't tear me away. I can't wait for the ending so that I know what's going to happen, but I'm sad when it ends. I love their world. I wouldn't want to live in it, but I love hearing about it, reading about it, experiencing it vicariously, as a hero, of course! I love that the point of view switches between characters. It leaves you guessing as to what's happening with the other characters. Always makes you wonder who is going to die this time. It's war. People have to die. Even if you don't want them to. And I don't. I don't want them to die. I hate it when someone dies. I love them all and want the typical happy ending for everybody. But, even though I don't get that, I still love these books. Who knew I would love the Space Opera genre?! I'm so surprised by that even after listening to four books, haha! There's just enough drama, suspense, action and humor to make this the perfect movie series. I feel like I should be pitching this to a movie company instead of writing a review. But, alas, this is the best I can do to try to get other people to give this series a try. You won't regret it. It's perfect!
Jim, the Kingslayer, is devastated by the deaths of his wife and son, and the loss of so many friends. His vigil besides Tarq, the Akakie leader ends with what looks like the insectoid’s death. Then he reappears coming through the door and smoking a pipe. Jim goes ballistic and knocks him out and Jim’s mood spirals downward. Gerneral Maada and another try to bring him out of it as the General is certain they will be attacked again. Unfortunately, General Maada’s instincts are correct. Their last battle has created a force that brings the destruction of the universe. Now they must travel back in time to set things right. They wind up on a planet preparing the ship with a million drones and run by an AI named Mother. Instead of stopping the AI immediately something goes wrong and the AI becomes more powerful and unleashes the huge space vehicle containing the million drones after it renames itself Father. Will Jim, Kurt, General Maada and Tarq be able to survive this onslaught or will the Kingslayer and General Maada beat time itself? Hold onto your seat. It is a wild ride into the future.
This is the 4th book I've read in the Crimson Deathbringer series and the best. The author has written another tongue-in-cheek extravaganza with not so many pop culture references as the first three. Still, to any fan of Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, Men in Black, and many more (including Shakespeare!), there are little gems hidden in almost every conversation. Lots of wise cracking and off the wall humor as well as genuine suspense, pathos, and lots of action. Lots and lots of action! The book ends on a cliff hanger as before with promises of further sequels. You must read The Golden Viper first to get a handle on the autobiographical style and swashbuckling, arrogant, but oh so human protagonist. There is opportunity here for a very large spoiler but I won't go there.
The Silver Timeship Book 4 is another awesome installment of (The Crimson Deathbringer Series) Totally exciting with great characters, it keeps you turning pages, or in this case keeping your ears on. C.J. Grey does another amazing job narrating. I was provided this audiobook by Sean in his promotion, and this is my voluntary review.
The book and series is well written. I like the many tongue in cheek comments as well as the references to historical science fiction, whether paper or film. The protagonists are strong as well as the camaraderie. Plenty of action and good people die. Or do they? That’s the crux.
The saga continues. As with the other books, this one picks up where the last left off, and the crew are off to another adventure. Another easy listen that passes time without even noticing it. Glad there will be a book 5 as im not ready for their story to end.
