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.

Wasn't what I expected for this series.

Struggled to follow the storyline do to boredom and didn't really follow the theme of Galaxy's Edge series.

Another enjoyable addition to Galaxy's Edge

Great addition to the galaxy's edge series! Answers a lot of the mysteries that have come up. Only complaint would be that at times the storytelling came across as repetitive about certain points. Overall a good listen.

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

Profound

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”

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.

love this series

the best Space Opera book series I've ever found. And I'm definitely enjoying the Standalone novels to go along and fill in any of the over-reaching gaps in the story. It's been a pleasure sharing this with friends and getting them to appreciate not only the Fantastic narration but the well and not contrived it all story

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.

Thinly veiled mediocre Star Wars fan-fiction

Even calling it thinly veiled is an insult to the comparatively denser properties of a veil. If there wasn’t some valuable backstory early on in the book I would say it was a complete waste to listen to, and I almost never leave bad reviews; that’s how salty this book made me.

This book isn’t actually too bad if you never heard of a thing called Star Wars. For all 3 of you out of the loop this might be a newfangled delight.

If I had to weigh it against anything from the Star Wars franchise, I think only the Muppet Special could be considered worse, and it’s way worse than any actual Star Wars book I’ve read, which is maybe about only half a dozen?

This? This book was dumb and completely unnecessary. I don’t even want to read the follow-up if there is one. Madame Guillotine should be considered the last book in the series because this POS shouldn’t even be included.

This review probably won’t stop any fans from reading it but hopefully it dissuades people that randomly stumble upon it.

Here’s what goes down in the book:

1. Really informative backstory for the first half of the book

2. Slightly confusing out-of-sync flashbacks and fast-forwards throughout the middle

3. Full Star Wars rip-off for the last third. And a mediocre one at that.

!!!actual spoilers below!!!! Only read this to save yourself time and money.

- Casper didn’t die, he disappeared and went into stasis for a 5 year hyperspace trip to find the Dark Wanderer in an effort to wield its power

- He lands on Planet X or whatever you want to call it and starts tripping out while his hunter-killer bot makes snide and sarcastic remarks to make the pacing less dull

- You get flashbacks of when Casper Rex and Rayna all escaped the Savages. This tells us how Rex got his armor and hand canon. It’s not that interesting

- They find the “source code” of the universe, and then leave it alone and swear to each other that it anyone goes back that they must die

-Rayna and Casper both end up breaking this promise. Rayna died before Casper did on the same planet

- Casper goes through some rigorous Sith training and eventually faces and defeats the Dark Wanderer. Allegedly. There’s someone called “The Master” and I’m pretty sure that was the actual Dark Wanderer, but in case it wasn’t the whole Dark Wanderer being loosed on the world and putting existence itself in jeopardy never happens and it’s never implied that it will happen

- Casper kills Rex with the Force and burns his body and takes his armor

- Casper renames himself Goth Sullis, becomes the dictator of the galaxy and has a somewhat epic battle at the end where a bunch of Legionaires try to assassinate him. They fail, he feels great about that, then completely sheds the Casper identity and memories and that was the end of the book.

I hope that saved you some time and money. Otherwise, enjoy the shitshow.

Even RC Bray didn’t seem like he was digging it and he’s almost always top notch. He was probably embarrassed for the series.

There’s a lot of good Galaxy’s Edge books but this is not one of them. Stay away from it and anything related to it. There’s much better actual Star Wars fiction out there.

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.
