Inhaltsangabe

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. Earth will need a fleet. One with a hidden purpose. One strong enough to fight a battle against annihilation.

The Ember War is the first installment in an epic military sci-fi series. If you enjoyed A Hymn Before Battle by John Ringo and The Last Starship by Vaughn Heppner, then you'll love this explosive adventure with constant thrills and high stakes from beginning to end.

The Ruins of Anthalas, book 2: An ancient holocaust holds the key to humanity's survival.

Only a sliver of mankind survived the Xaros invasion. With Earth's defenses in ashes, nothing can stop the aliens' inevitable return. Hope arrives through a cryptic message from a long-lost alien race, promising the means to rebuild the shattered space fleet. Captain Valdar takes one of the last strike carriers, the Breitenfeld, and his shell-shocked crew on a desperate mission to the dead world. Unfortunately humans aren't the only power that received the ancient message....

The Ruins of Anthalas is the second book in The Ember War Saga, a military sci-fi space opera. If you like David Weber and John Ringo with a touch of Isaac Asimov, then you'll love this fast-paced and captivating adventure where humanity survives at the edge of a knife.

Accaptable SciFi with a good idea

I read in another review, that this book is Stargate meets von Neumann probe, meant as unoriginal. I disagree with that statement, the story idea is sound. The problem I personally have with this book is Richard Foxs writing style. His characters feel shallow and often react unrealistic. (the soldiers in his book look more like a 5th grade school class) Despite depicting a rather straight forward story it is sometimes hard to follow it due to insufficiently described scenes.

Different yet superb collection of books

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.

very impressive narrator, interesting story line

Auf welchen Platz würden Sie The Ember War auf Ihrer Hörbuch-Bestenliste setzen?

Interesting story set in a universe that is quite a bit different from other Sci Fi habitats.
Brought to life by a narrator who is a real voice artist.
I would be looking forward to an audible sequel
