Publisher's Summary

A galactic, sci-fi listen, with a hint of litRPG elements.

Ryan Stathis has everything he ever wanted: A family, a nice home, and a career with a government agency designing military aircraft. That is, until one late night at the office ends with him being snatched by an alien spaceship, and he's forced to take command. 

Thrust into a new universe, Ryan unknowingly holds the key to the one thing standing between Earth, and it’s annihilation.

Dark Matter Empire is the story of one man’s journey, as he evades an alien empire's grasp, while searching for a way home. Will he succeed, and return to his old life? Or will humanity pay the price for his failure?

Great start to this new series!

It’s not often I find a book from a new author this good. This series has potential to become amazing. It’s not that original but has great characters and a good storyline and I’m looking forward to the next book in this series. Paul delivers amazingly as usual!

Lasted about an hour

The protagonist did not do this story a service. Whiny, panicky and annoying.

The way I interface with stories is through the protagonist. I self insert, experiencing the story through them.

I lasted an hour under those parameters.

That says it all, really.

Awesome plot and character development

The main character is forced to make some huge decisions that make for an entertaining journey. The chapters switch to the villain often which makes it fun and suspenseful

Narration on point too

Great Narration, great first entry from author

The narrator did a bang up job with this book. Its an enjoyable romp and sci-fi escapist story for all those ppl that not only want to save the world, but save the galaxy too.
My one criticism is Ryan's dialogue, it almost comes off oddly compared to other character's dialogue. He's got a bit of a golly gee shucks type of way of engaging with the world that comes off almost unintentionally funny.
Its only 8 hours long, easy for that long day long car trip.

Difficult start but well worth sticking through

The first hour was hard to get into but it gets so much better. Initially the protagonist just seemed extremely whiny. Hard to connect with, but eventually develops into a well rounded character. The end left me wanting more. I'm looking forward to the next release.

MC is too dumb

Couldn't get past the first couple chapters. Nothing is thought out and MC logic is just so dumb it was hard for me to get past and care about the story.
