Très bonne surprise que ce premier volume, Anderson remonte nettement dans mon estime après avoir vandalisé Dune.

L'intrigue et les personnages sont intéressants et bien développés. Le tout se tient et donne envie de continuer vers les volumes suivants.

Dommage cependant que le résumé de 4ème de couverture donne l'intégralité de l'histoire (je hais les éditeurs qui font ça); on peut donc un peu s'impatienter si on s'attend à dépasser la trame qui est déjà toute dévoilée.

Excellent roman ! De nombreux personnages, différentes intrigues et des évènements complexes et un conflit contre des races aliens. Un auteur que j'avais déjà beaucoup apprécié en collaboration avec Brian Herbert (Dune).

Kevin J. Anderson, le massacreur de DUNE (bouquins dans l'univers de Dune écrits avec le fils de Franck Herbert), s'est lancé dans cette série purement SF dans une oeuvre cette fois-ci totalement personnelle. On doit lui reconnaître qu'il a mis le paquet, Empires stellaires, aliens, intrigues politiques, guerres et génocides. L'histoire débute après que la fusion d'un monde jupitérien pour fournir lumière et chaleur à ses lunes et les rendre habitables, révèle qu'il était habité par une race secrète, les Hydrogues. Ca commence fort, hélas Kevin en faisant usage de la fameuse (trop) narration multiple (tout le monde parle, donc on sait tout) affaiblit son récit en expliquant trop, trop vite, au dépend de la qualité de ses personnages. Il faut être vraiment bon pour faire vivre de beaux personnages quand ils encombrent à ce point le livre. En l'absence d'accroche on s'ennuit assez vite et on ne lit plus qu'une sorte de livre d'histoire. Ca peut être intéressant.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Frustratingly slow plot; too much universe building which doesn't drive the story forward. 9 mai 2015
Par Anthony Ho - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Hidden Empire is the first book in a series, but despite its length, it seems like little more than a prologue rather than a novel. Author Kevin J. Anderson spends most of this book repetitively universe building that he forgets to drive the story forward. Chapters are presented where nothing happens. For example, several chapters involve a cultural spy and by the end of the book, he's done nothing, learned nothing, and was completely irrelevant to the overall story. Because of the many useless chapters introducing peripheral characters doing nothing, the book and the plot move at a snail's pace. By the time interesting things happen, it's about 90% through the book. And then Anderson just breezes through those plot points with short prose.

And that's a darn shame. There's some really good, intriguing ideas in this book. This book could easily have been 1/3 of its length, and what Anderson needed was a strong editor to tell him to cut the fat from the story, while strengthening the more interesting parts. I will finish the series because I'm invested in the story now, but it's pretty clear that the rest of the series will suffer from the same problems--slow pace, useless chapters, and nothing driving the plot forward.

Worse--many of the characters seem to have names taken from other sci-fi and fantasy books and dropped in as distracting homages, particularly to Game of Thrones. Anderson may fantasize that he's creating a story as interesting and complex as George R.R. Martin, but he doesn't come close. For example an alien admiral is named Jora'h (shades of Jorah Mormont from Game of Thrones); an alien bodyguard is named Bron'n (like Bronn from Game of Thrones); a pair of Earthlings are named Colicos (like actor John Colicos from the original Battlestar Galactica), etc. It happens enough that it cannot be mere coincidence, but this really breaks up the already weak story for the well-informed science fiction fan.

Barely deserving of three stars ("It's okay"), it's really worthy only as a time-waster and not as a world-changing story. The good ideas are developed too slowly and lost in completely irrevelant chapters. Good chapters are too short and too few. One of the few times that I've wished a story was actually shorter. Someday, someone will create a more compact version of the whole saga, cutting out the useless material. There's a good story here waiting to come out, but this first book makes me feel like I'm a beta tester for a crappy author.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Okay book but too much text for too little story 14 mars 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is indeed a large and very well written book. Unfortunately, after having read it I do not get the satisfied feeling that I would have expected. Instead I get a feeling that there was too much text and too little actual story. Actually it is not that there is no story. There is a lot of it in fact. But the author painstakingly goes on and on with details, interactions between people etc. etc. and nothing really happens for long periods of time. The entire book is more or less just an introduction to the actual story.

Each individual piece of the book is very good in itself but, surprisingly, when put the pieces together, the whole becomes…not so great. Each chapter is well written and it is actually fun to read but after a while you feel that you are eating a meal which turned into Groundhog Day while you were eating the entrée and you never get to continue to the main course.

When the book finally ends, with no less than five players with their own agenda a no qualms to promote it via deceit and treachery, the stage is set for a true space opera full of scheming, backstabbing and other such despicable activities. I cannot say that this is exactly my cup of tea. Having said that, there is also ample opportunity for action since a brutal war is looming at the horizon. If the next book is in the same style as this one I am afraid that the actual action will take a back seat though.

The story itself is quite compelling, to me at least, and holds quite a lot of promise. Thus I am quite hesitant to give up on the series even though I did not get the satisfaction out of this book as I hoped. In any case I rarely give up on a book series unless it turns out to be real crap. I will not dive into the next one right away though. I need a fix of some easier to read literature before I dig my eyes into the next on in this series.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A lot to set up and explain, but does it well. 30 août 2015
Par Josh Heinz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm almost done with the book. As the opening to the series, this book has *A LOT* of setting up characters and relationships, and a very large number of characters. Lots of things going on, some related, some not. More than a few scenes to build some characters with no bearing on the plot itself. The character's themselves are believable, relatable, and well thought out.

A very slow, very long book. However, about 3/4ths of the way through, the pace is picking up *quick*. Really looking forward to book 2. If you're looking for an intro into promising series, dig in. If you are looking for some high speed action... look elsewhere.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice Story Line, but.... 26 juin 2017
Par Martin Phillips - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm giving this book and the 6 sequels after it a 3 star and that is all based on the plot/story line. I can't believe I stuck with this for all 7 books, but I did so mainly for the plot. The writing is atrocious! This story, in 7 books, could have easily been told in 3, maybe 4, books. The writer for some reason feels compelled to repeat, repeat, repeat, almost everything. Not only did he feel like he needed to treat each book, sequel or not, as if a person reading it had not read any of the subsequent books, but he also felt the need to treat each page like the reader had not read any of the other pages. How many times do we need to read the same thing over and over. How many times do we need to be reminder that Cesca and Jess are/were star crossed lovers? Certainly not every time either character has a part in the plot. But that is how the writer writes. I found myself skipping over vast amounts of writing, things I had been told in the story many many times, but there it was again, just to glean a very small bit of plot movement. If I knew the writing was going to be this bad, I would never have started reading it.

One of my favorite things about Sci-Fi is the complete emersion that you get as the writer behind creating their world around you. This series was suggested to me and what a wonderful world he has created. I'm looking forward to continuing my journey into the Suns.
