Overview: Empire's Passing: Volume 1

Earth is destroyed by the Goth Alliance. The Emperor of the star-spanning Imperium dies in the attack and thousands of worlds face an interstellar Dark Age as Pretenders compete for the throne and the Goths rampage unchecked. The Goth Alliance is led by a High Priestess under the influence of a parasite inhabiting her brain, giving her mind control powers over humanoids, but requiring deaths of humanoids to survive and procreate. Unfortunately, Humans taste best of all humanoid species, particularly when they die during sex. Her visions of future timelines show Humans as her biggest threat. Her offspring have spread across much of inhabited space. Duke Michael of the planet New Meyer struggles to keep his world and those of his space-jump chute safe in the increasing chaos as the Imperium disintegrates. He's faced with the choice of trying to defend his world or a long shot attempt to save the Imperium that makes New Meyer an even bigger target. Then a billion year old race with the ability to bend space and time and who consider Humans as one of their Chosen Races, intervenes to protect their investment. Now Humans must fight one of the oldest wars of all: temptation. Empire's Passing is a modern version of an old-fashioned space potboiler with a twist of horror thrown in. Writing as JW Morris, Joseph W. Morris began his love affair with science fiction when his third grade teacher introduced him to Tom Swift. Since then he has worked to make SF a reality as an aerospace engineer and innovator. This is his first book, and the first book in the Imperium Succession Saga.

     A very unique and nice read... 14 December, 2013 On
    “Space is big. Really big,” wrote Douglas Adams in his classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. New science fiction author J.W. Morris understands the vastness of space and ably conveys it in this fast-paced, futuristic novel, Empire’s Passing, the first volume in his Imperium Secession Saga.

    The grand scope of Morris’s tale is clear from the start: It’s the year 2937. Earth has been destroyed by the greedy Goth Alliance, which is now targeting the small but strategically important planet, New Meyer, keeper of several important space jump chutes that connect key players in an ongoing interstellar war. It’s up to Michael Landsman, Duke of New Meyer, to protect those chutes, his planet, and maybe the fate of the interstellar government, the Imperium.

    Epic battles alternate with an intriguing storyline about Michael’s formidable foe, the High Priestess of the Goth Alliance, who feeds off the sexual energy of humans. She’s a powerful villain, and it’s too bad her story sits mostly apart from Michael’s, at least for now. The focus, instead, is on Michael’s alliances and the high-tech, experimental weapons he wants to employ.

    Using military language, Morris conjures up massive space battleships and asteroid-pulling tugs, and often anchors his heroic fights for control of the Imperium in Earth history. Calling on the parallels with the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, for instance, Morris offers some familiar and much-needed guideposts in an immense and sometimes overwhelming interstellar landscape.

    While Empire’s Passing tells a complete story on its own, the characters and relationships take a backseat to the action, and thus feel introductory. Future volumes will no doubt afford the opportunity to develop these elements further. For now, Michael’s courageous, seat-of-his-pants response to interplanetary emergencies will certainly satisfy many space saga fans.
