This book takes place in the Marvel universe. In this one, something is destroying a neighboring galaxy and the X-Men travel to this galaxy to put a stop to this destruction.

This was a decent adventure with our favorite mutant team. I had no problem with the portrayal of the characters or the setting of this adventure. While I was looking for a fun action adventure in this universe, this book was a little too philosophical at times. Also, the antagonist of the story wasn't your usual antagonist

I found this story to be quite interesting between the fate of the universe hanging in the balance, to the balance that each member of the X-men played in their teamwork.

Not a bad story, but lots of bad science and bad math and so-so writing

Deep space action with intergalactic politics tossed in for good measure. While not a horrible read I could not give it more than three stars. I can't put my finger on it..but at times the "voices" of the characters seems a little off.

Diane Duane is one of my favorite authors, mostly because of her amazing Star Trek fiction. Although X-Men: Empire's End didn't match up to Spock's World in terms of quality, it was still a good, fun novel. It wasn't anything too special, but I would think that fans of Professor X and company who are looking for a quick, easy read might find it enjoyable.

The X-Men film opens soon, so I tried this novel to relearn the X-world. Xers do not appear until p. 33. First 5 pages are so boring that I did not get that far.

Had it, hated it, sold it. A dry and boring X-Men story that lacked imagination.
