An explosive new science fiction series by New York Times best-selling author Kevin J. Anderson, Hidden Empire is the first volume in The Saga of the Seven Suns, modeled after the Star Wars and X-Files universes. Anderson has become the foremost science fiction writer of the century, bringing to life vivid characters and worlds that delight his fans across the galaxy.

The Klikiss, a now-extinct alien civilization, left behind vast technological information that has been discovered by two xenoarchaeologists. One discovery, a device that converts gas planets into life-giving suns is quickly put to the test with unimaginable results. Arising out of the test is a new alien species that threatens every human. Mankind is left with the dim reality, either fight the new alien life form or face humiliation, death, and extinction.

This riveting adventure swings you from one wonderous realm to another as the Hidden Empire is sought after and exposed. Anderson has created a gripping beginning to what will surely be his best series yet. George Guidall has returned a stellar performance and brought these characters to life in vivid detail.

    " potential to be a great space opera, but not quite there yet. have to see what vol II brings. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Mark Musante | 2/8/2014

    " The writing seemed far too simplistic. The characters were thinly drawn, and the universe too sparse to get into. When building universes, they must be thick and meaty, and Anderson seems to believe that the key to world-building is adding extra adjectives in. This book did not work for me and I gave up after about 50 pages or so. Two stars instead of one due to the fact that the writing was competent. "

    " Ordinarily, I have no problem with tall, sad-eyed, green-skinned (from subcutaneous chlorophyll) priests who communicate instantly across the galaxy by means of the WorldTree. But when combined with characters I'd rather slap a few times than read about, arrogant aliens giving humanity a lesson for being so precocious (with the tacit approval of the author) and poor, stilted narrative, they become unbearable. Go away, you green-skinned freaks!! I don't want to hear about benevolent old King Frederick of the Terran Hanseatic League and all his foibles!! I don't want to hear about the Klikiss torch that turns has giants into suns!! Out, specter of poor science fiction!! I expel thee in the name of Orson Scott Card!! "
