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 wondrous 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.

Professional reviews

"The ever reliable George Guidall immerses himself in Anderson's new science fiction series, creatively voicing a variety of characters that includes humans, aliens, and robots. Guidall's relaxed, understated style nevertheless offers a wide range of well-drawn vocal characterizations that complement but never distract from the action at hand. The story itself, about a mysterious alien species suddenly attacking from nowhere and forcing the human and nonhuman species of the future to work together to repel the invaders, is a sort of user-friendlier DUNE. That is, it has much of the same complexity in its anthropological details but moves along at a much zippier pace. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
