Summary

The Imperium: a million worlds, trillions upon trillions of humans and aliens, an empire that dominates half the galaxy... an empire that is falling into chaos, revolution and civil war. Only a handful of people are struggling to keep the Imperium together, knowing that the brutality of its rule is infinitively preferable to the chaos of its fall. This is their story. Mariko and her sister were independent shippers and ace pilots, until they ran afoul of the law on a minor planet and ended up jailed and enslaved. Their new owner, Lord Fitz, seems to be nothing more than another harmless aristocrat with more money than sense - and besides, at least they can keep flying spacecraft. But Fitz isn't all he seems. He works for Imperial Intelligence, attempting to track down and destroy the Secessionist Movement before it launches a plan that threatens the very heart of the Imperium - and Mariko and her sister have just become his latest tools. But as they are drawn deeper into the seedy underside of the Imperium, one question comes to dominate their minds... Does the Imperium even deserve to survive?

Fun listen. Although unlike other books from CN

In the grim dark future the aristocracy has risen!

A fun listen, which was well performed by Genvieve, although I couldn't quite believe it when the end credits rolled and I realised the author. Besides being set in space, pretty much nothing like CNs Ark Royal series. That's not to say however that I wouldn't recommend.
It's (at least to me) a very unique story, which in terms of genre I think would have to be described at times as action/adventure/romcom.

Would recommend as a fun sci-fi adventure.

Outstanding Book

Would you consider the audio edition of On the Imperium's Secret Service to be better than the print version?

Yes, I don't have time to sit down and read a print version so I rely on Audiobooks. This was an outstanding read and look forward to book two.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All three were equal.

What about Genvieve Bevier’s performance did you like?

Very good she kept me interested through out the complete book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was just an outstanding read with a great ending.

Not my thing.

When a story starts out with men groping a young partially naked girl and pulling out his manhood for a another caged young girl to have oral sex with....... I know this this was not for me.
