The Ember War, book 1: The Earth is doomed. Humanity has a chance. In the near future, an alien probe arrives on Earth with a pivotal mission: to determine if humanity has what it takes to survive the impending invasion by a merciless armada. The probe discovers Marc Ibarra, a young inventor who holds the key to a daring gambit that could save a fraction of Earth's population. Humanity's only chance lies with Ibarra's ability to keep a terrible secret and engineer the planet down the narrow path to survival.

I really enjoyed this collection of books. It is not your usual aliens vs humans sci-fi story. Instead, the stage of the story changes continuously and before you know it you are going to be introduced to a bunch of the new worlds and alien races. The narrator most of the time does a great job to make the characters alive. However, in case of non-English characters his accent is most of the time Indian (in my opinion) although characters are not. Therefore, I would suggest an improvement there. All in all you will enjoy the story and look forward to the next book. I know I am.

Kate Richmond, former army ranger and ISS operative, has seen a lot in her life. Sabotage, espionage, cyber theft, and assassination missions have all played their parts in her journey to becoming a viper. Nothing surprises her much any more, not even a full scale incursion of an alien race by the Merkiaari!

Sixteen billion dead. In humanity's last brush with the Merkiaari, it was nearly wiped out in a war that spanned decades. When survey ship captain Jeff Colgan discovers a new alien race, he's required to investigate. But what if the life form is as deadly as the Merkiaari? As the aliens discover Colgan's ship and begin to hunt him down, the captain's mission changes from one of study to one of survival.

You will be enchanted by both the captivating story and Mark's performance. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is not your standard SciFi war book in the sense that you get to appreciate multiple points of view from both the good and the bad guys. Can't wait to listen the 4th book and I hope that the rest of the books is coming soon to Audible.

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

I would recommend this book only to people this far away into the series, however you need all the previous ones in order to understand the story.

Was war der interessanteste Aspekt der Handlung? Welcher der uninteressanteste?

The parallel stories of some of the main characters are action packed although a bit diluted to make yet another book of the series.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit R.C. Bray gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

As always RC Bray is outstanding.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

I did finish it fairly quickly (i.e. in couple of days), just because I am curious how everything is going to play out. Nevertheless, I feel that the author is stretching here to make yet another book in the series.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

I would prefer that the last few books are bundled together just as the first three are since otherwise they are too short as standalone audiobooks (at least in my opinion).

As all of the R. C. Bray's performances this one is also superb. The book is captivating although a bit short. I would suggest to bundle them as it is done with the first 3 books. In any case, it is definitely a must if you have come thus far with the series.

The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her thinned, exhausted, and beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded. Soon the ship's five-acre flight deck will become the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle - like no combat any modern army has seen since Stalingrad. The ranks of the dead are infinite, and those of the living are tiny, depleted, and running out of time...and of hope.

Humanity has colonized the planets - interstellar travel is still beyond our reach, but the solar system has become a dense network of colonies. But there are tensions - the mineral-rich outer planets resent their dependence on Earth and Mars and the political and military clout they wield over the Belt and beyond. Now, when Captain Jim Holden's ice miner stumbles across a derelict, abandoned ship, he uncovers a secret that threatens to throw the entire system into war.

OK SciFi book and narration but not mind blowing. The story although interesting is very slow which makes it difficult to follow from time to time. Moreover, the narration was most of the time flat which certainly did not help. Or maybe I just got spoiled by RC Bray.

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he's alive - and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plainold "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
