Empire of Bones
by Terry Mixon

Jared Mertz, not to be confused with any progeny of Ethel Mertz, is a Commander in the Imperial Navy of the reborn Terran Empire centered on a planet named Avalon.  He has had an uphill battle to prove himself and safeguard his projection of integrity during his career because when he joined a blood test showed that he was a royal.
The reborn Terran Empire has spread out pretty well since reentering space but they still lack a lot of technology that was lost with the fall of the first Empire.  Good excuse to send out scouting expeditions looking to recover useful things and maybe go a little BSG, Battlestar Galactica for those of you not…hip, in hunting down Earth.
Commander Mertz is looking forward to the responsibility of safeguarding a freighter loaded with scientists through unexplored space right up until the last minute of departure when he gets saddled with last minute crew including his royal sister as an Ambassador.
A critique I would give on the plot is that I feel the expeditions are going out really under-gunned.  Granted this navy has not actually fought a war but they have existed with the damage from the last one of the Old Empire.  Surely they can’t think the Galaxy is now benign?
Enough with the almost spoilers dude!  I really enjoyed this series kick off and plan to continue reading them as they come out.  Four out of five rail gun shots in the face of the Pale Ones! http://www.amazon.com/Empire-Bones-Book-Saga-ebook/dp/B00M5KESGA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1418744383&sr=8-3&keywords=Empire+of+Bones&pebp=1418744386632

The Great North Road
by Peter Hamilton
http://www.audible.com/pd/Sci-Fi-Fantasy/Great-North-Road-Audiobook/B00ATTA71O
This book is frigging awesome but do yourself a favor and listen to it.  I’ve read Peter Hamilton’s door stoppers and you could definitely use the narration and voice acting to keep the momentum up.  This is goooooooood!

Excellent, Crispy Critter time…
Funky music too.
Victor Storm crow ‘He didn’t stand a chance.’
Ah, warning lights on the rescue eagle…let’s disregard them.  Fuck the preflight!!
Allen is having a series of female hallucinations.  I think his subconscious is trying to tell him something.  Evidence Allen can do his job with his eyes closed.
Eartha Kit alien?
Guess we won’t be blowing up the massive planet in our path.

Woman in black veils…Black Widow?  Don’t have sex with her!
Ara, Queen of Itheria.  Of course you expected us for millions of years cause that makes sense.
Meanwhile Paul tells Novacaine Face to stop stating the obvious, plainly ruining the only part she has to play.
We are going to collide, open and shut, black and white, absurd decision-making practices and oops, Stormcrow Victor now has faith.
What’s with all the damn nuclear bombs?  Thought those mostly blew up in Episode 1?
Telepathetic communication brought to you by Ara.
Please shoot Helena.  Please!
