Summary

The final fight for control of humanity begins now.

The United Terran Federation is on the brink of collapse after a devastating attack by the Eastern Star Alliance that has left four planets depopulated and uninhabitable. Terrified member worlds are fleeing from the Federation and the remnant of their once-mighty fleet has retreated to the last place they are welcome: Earth. 

Out of options and time, the Federation turns to Admiral Jackson Wolfe and his new superweapon that could be the key to turning the tide of the war in their favor. Admiral Wolfe knows that no matter what, the fate of humanity will be decided in the coming battle.

Empire is the final book in the bestselling Black Fleet Saga.

An amazing conclusion to a incredible series.

I just want to say thank you, to both Mark Boyett and Joshua Dalzell for an amazing performance to a incredible series. It's been a hell of a journey throughout all the book and it's with a heavy heart that I finish this series. I'll be looking forward to listening to both of your content in the future and will always hold out hope that you'll both reunite to work on the universe of this series once again.

The wrong big bad

It felt the stakes were continually lowered as the series has gone on. Pity as Warship was compelling.
I was interested in finding out more about the aliens, or a looming threat from within, but nope, brushed away.
The Vruhan cliffhanger... forgotten.

Black fleet is all that is needed.

Excellent- from start to finish

This has been a fantastic trilogy. I have been gripped for every minute of it. The characters were fully fleshed out and the storyline was excellent.
The narration was perfect with the characters being brought to life.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this.
Ready for something new from this author.

fantastic series, great ending

9 books later and the intricacies of dalzelles writing will be ingrained to your brain for expectations for a standard of space operas. The pronounced and infamous voice of Mark Boyett made me shiver with excitement when announcing entrances of familiar characters.
well worth a read/listen

Mr Dalzelle did another fanatic job of creating an exciting thriller that has many turns to keep listeners from putting the book down. Fabulous characters and an excellent plot.

A GREAT Ending to a GREAT Series of Trilogies

This was one of the first series I have enjoyed on Audible and I HIGHLY recommend it! I was never one for space opera but now I am hooked and look forward to more from Joshua Dalzelle and other books of similar style and subject.
THANK YOU for this series!

Need More Jackson Wolfe

This is one of the best space opera / military series in my collection. From the Phage war to the culminating conflict between human factions, the strategy and tactics of warfare in space were made real by great writing and even better acting by Mark Boyer.

I just hope we haven’t heard the last of Admiral Jackson Wolfe.

Strongly recommend the entire series!

Just a plain good story.

It a feel good ending to a great series. I hate seeing it come to a end but it did in such a way it will leave a mark in you mind for days to come. I hope the author will continue to make stories in which characters create let you root for and scoul against.

Ok

It was ok. To much feldacarb added to make the series go on. If that was taken out it would have been great. The narrator is one of the best.

Simply awesome

I started and finished this book in under 2 days. I could not be happier with the writing and narration. It is a story you can not walk away from with villains you despise and heroes you admire.

stunning series

This final series of the Wolf series was very well written. At one point i had to take a break and calm down because the story was getting very intense and plot twisted. But i turned it back on after 1 day and got back into the story. The Wolf Pack will be great!!!

Wished the trilogy never ended

Love all 3 trilogy's about Jackson Wolfe and his quests to save humanity. Hope Dalzelle writes another story in this universe and brings along Boyett for the narration.
