    “They saved him, fed him and showed him what strength really is. And they were all volunteers, every last one of them.No one had to order an American to save the oppressed.

    Oh boy, This is one of the worst Sci-Fi books I have ever read. This book ticks all the right boxes if it was written solely for the amusement of white supremacist members. Stinking Indian - Tick Evil Chinamen - Tick Zealot Muslims on a christian enslavement bender - Double Tick This book is not about the survival of humanity facing the imminent threat of extinction, but about advertising American exceptionalism and its desire to rekindle America after the destruction of planet America.

    Interesting Story. I am an avid reader of military sci-fi, and we have found a new author to follow. While the end of humanity plotline is common amongst this genre, how Mr Fox goes about setting the story is different from many of the other novels I have read. He has created a new galaxy to play in, and I have a feeling, this book is only the beginning. This book has excellent pace, and a perfect blend of space battles and ground battles throughout the book. The characters aren't deeply develop Interesting Story.

I wouldn't say this book ends on a cliffhanger, but when you finish a book that leaves the plot open, it makes you crave the next book. Editing could be better, but this is typical for new authors. I found only a few mistakes, and I am not the best writer, as this review is evident, so it is possible I missed some too. Overall I'd give the book 4 1/2 stars. Give this book a read, you will enjoy it.

    A thoroughly adequate and by the numbers military sci-fi book that doesn't really bring anything new to the table, stretch any bounds, clear any hurdles, or really do anything that I haven't read in a dozen and one military sci-fi books I can name just off the top of my head right now. Not bad, just kind of generic. If you really want me to sing your praises, you've got to do something a bit more original with the genre than this.

I felt like I was reading a novelization of the first episode of the Battlestar Galactica remake through most of the book. So, uh, instead of reading this book, go Netflix Battlestar Galactica, because that series was awesome, despite it's non-ending. This one, eh, I'll give it another book to get its act together and pull itself out of Mehsville. Audible is selling both books as a single audiobook atm, so I might as well.

    A great read... For the most part, a well written, edited story, that kept me engaged the entire time. I wish it had been longer, but I am definitely looking for more. Keep the story rolling!

Marc and the alien intelligence have helped prepare humanity from the deadly Xaros droids who have so far eradicated all life forms they have encountered. We join a squad of space marines as they make initial contact with the Xaros horde. The Ember War is a wild ride that details how humanity battles a menacing and intelligent foe. I'd call it hard military science fiction, but without some of the usual drawbacks. Sometimes the characters suffer in military science fiction, but not so here. Our protagonist, Ken Hale, is a very real person who leads an ever-shrinking team against almost impossible odds. The technology is awesome and interesting, but not too heavy. I didn't get lost in it-as can be the case in this genre. I've read some critical reviews of the ending, but it worked for me. You have to close a book somehow, and the introduction of a new species (friend or foe) left me thirsting for more. Well done, Richard Fox! I received an ARC copy of The Ember War in exchange for my honest review.

    A good opening book into a new sci-fi world. Set in the near future, the plot moves along nicely with enough anticipation and tension to keep the pages turning and wanting to see what would happen. Perhaps just a bit too straight forward of a plot with no real twists or failures by the protagonists. However, with the number of developed characters you could tell this book was setting up the potential to develop a much deeper world and stories as the war with the Xaros continues on.

    This is quite a good start of a new series in the alien invasion/human survival science fiction genre. It has a certain originality, it is fairly well written and has a decent pace. I have to say that, based on the book blurb, I did expect a slightly different story. Obviously I cannot reveal anything about the story without spoiling parts of the book but I quite liked how the author has created a somewhat original story on a not so original basic theme.

It has a certain originality, it is fairly well written and has a decent pace. I have to say that, based on the book blurb, I did expect a slightly different story. Obviously I cannot reveal anything about the story without spoiling parts of the book but I quite liked how the author has created a somewhat original story on a not so original basic theme. The book is generally well written as I wrote although the characters are perhaps a bit superficially handled most of the time. It did not disturb me a lot, I rather have somewhat superficial characters than endless monologues, dialogues and introspection, but it also made me feel that there was no character that stood out as the main character, the hero, that you felt like following. Perhaps some of this feeling comes from the fact that although Marc Ibarra should have been the big hero, and technically he is, he is actually not present for most of the book. The pace of the book is reasonably fast paced and for most of the part it suited me just fine. However I also feel that some parts that I wanted to read about was left out. Specifically, there is a place where the author makes a fast forward over several decennia and that leaves a lot of the story untold. I can understand why the author did it since it made it possible to have more of a surprise effect later in the book but it still feels like a bit of the book was missing. The authors solution to the “small” problem of a somewhat hostile race with an armada that blots out the sun and the incompatibility of this with the survival of the human race was a bit of a surprise to me. I quite enjoyed his solution. Since this is supposed to be the first book in a series it is hardly a spoiler when I write that the human race, at least some of it, did survive…for now. The last chapters of the book sets the stage for the books to come and although it would be fair to say that the book does not end in a blatant cliffhanger it does indeed leave quite a few loose ends and questions. It was definitely an enjoyable book for me. Maybe a bit simple and not very deep reading at times but a good adventure with a refreshing originality. I am most certainly going to pick up the next one when it comes out.

    A book that really can't get out of it's own way. The idea behind the story is actually pretty good. The characters and writing, unfortunately, I found to be problematic. The perspectives are Mr. Space Captain, Mr. Space Marine, Mrs. Fighter Pilot, and Mrs. Moronic Chosen One. None of them are bad, except for the incredibly annoying Mrs. Moronic Chosen One, but each perspective has significant weaknesses. For Mr. Space Captain the character seems fine but the inability to write the space battles w A book that really can't get out of it's own way. The idea behind the story is actually pretty good. The characters and writing, unfortunately, I found to be problematic. The perspectives are Mr. Space Captain, Mr. Space Marine, Mrs. Fighter Pilot, and Mrs. Moronic Chosen One. None of them are bad, except for the incredibly annoying Mrs. Moronic Chosen One, but each perspective has significant weaknesses. For Mr. Space Captain the character seems fine but the inability to write the space battles with sufficient clarity about what is actually going on in the bigger picture is an issue. For Mr. Space Marine it's more of a character problem. For a marine he spend a lot of time dwelling introspectively on his emotions. In a role that demands a fearless grizzled badass you get a guy who can come across as a little... sensitive. Mrs. Fighter pilot is the best of the bunch. An actual badass but fairly underdeveloped as a character and the most limited page time of the all of them. Then there is Mrs. Moronic Chosen One. What to even say about her. She's a self absorbed idiot whose only real redeeming value is that she's a chosen one. So, not ideal. Overall, the strength of the idea makes it an ok book if you can overlook it's flaws but it's not something I'd ever recommend to anybody.

    Great opening novel. Marc Ibarra is awakened by a strange call. The result of this call will change his life and quite possibly save humanity. 60 years later mankind will face an enemy like it has never faced before. Ember War is well written with a fast paced story. The characters are enjoyable and the story is intriguing. I really enjoyed this volume and as soon as this review is over I will be downloading the next.

    Started good, but the prologue doesn't jive with the rest of the book, so I felt let down by that. Also, I couldn't understand the pro-America patriotic slant this book took, given that aliens attack and we should be thinking about unity and trust on a global scale.

    This was an exciting read, with some sparks of brilliance in between. Some of the action sequences are thrilling and edge-of-the-seat stuff. Richard Fox is a self-published author and hence it was difficult to find references in Google. I believe there is no entry in Wikipedia for him. Seems a shame. I guess publicity will come slowly as word of mouth. An enjoyable read and I have started on the second installment of the series.

    Great sci-fi story of a different post-apocalyptic earth and the future of humanity. Well written and thought through with good characterization. I did find some of the technical details confusing in some of the dynamic experiences, but they didn't slow down the pacing or drama enough to hinder the reading experience. The futuristic science fiction technology elements were great. All together a great read for sci-fi fans. Great sci-fi story of a different post-apocalyptic earth and the future of humanity.

    I am very sorry that I didn't leave a review, don't know what came over me! To the book! This book was fast paced and held my attention. What a concept? Yeah, it was a "the earth is doomed to complete destruction" type. But, it is very well done. I liked that it kept me guessing and the end wasn't too bad for the 1st of a series. The characters seemed to be people you know, and you cheer or cry for them. I will follow this series. I am very sorry that I didn't leave a review, don't know what came over me! To the book!

    Fairly straightforward mil sf. Yes there are some Battlestar Galactica (2004 version) similarities but certainly not so many as to be a retread, unlike what a few other mil sf series on my to read list, that may be.

As it is it's good, but it goes on my increasing love hate list. The story starts with a familiar beginning: to me. An alien AI probe arrives in the solar system on a fact finding mission, find the right level of intelligence and technology and begin the process of preparation for fending off an invasion or find something below that level and move on to the next target, since the solar system, if ill equipped, will be doomed to fall under the force soon to arrive. The good news is that there are sixty years to prepare, the bad news is we just barely make the grade and Mark Ibarra is our only hope. Fast forward 60 years and we have some Marines arriving on a mining outpost owned by the Ibarra Corporation. Our main character Ken Hale is there investigating an outpost with which communication has ceased mysteriously. As it turns out something has gone wrong, terribly wrong, and most of the people at the facility are dead. As far as I recall there is no definitive explanation for the malfunction (only suspicion), but this is mostly the introduction of our MC to a mystery involving the Iberra Corporation, the supposed mining outpost and a bit of world building explaining the relationship the military has to Iberra. More importantly it introduces the ship Breitenfeld which is where most of our action takes place. We switch next to a much older Marc, who is preparing for the worst since this is the projected year that the invasion forces will arrive. It takes a bit of time for the story to wind up but when it does it goes off and hardly lets up. There is a lengthy cast of characters and barely enough time to note them on the score cards before the action ramps up. The Chinese and the Iberra Corporation have a bit of a cold war going with acquisition of technology instead of land as the motivator. This is not a war Marc wants to fight just as he begins to gear up for a far more important engagement. This forces his hands and he makes decisions, that have consequences for people aboard ships he basically hijacks; and one of those people is his granddaughter. This book has everything that the average lover of Military Science Fiction will soak up like a sponge. And once the action starts there are hardly moments for the characters to take a breath. It's written well and sparse, which accounts for my problems with it. I love character driven stories and this one has some potential but the necessity for putting aside that for the focus on the action, left me a bit in the lurch.Besides not having any real solid point of view character to focus on, there were not enough details for my tastes though again that's because of the point of view. I think it might be fair to call Ken the point of view and we do get a fair idea of what he's about. But another important character is Stacy, Marc's granddaughter, who we barely get to know; yet her role is vital. There are some reveals about Marc and the plan and some of Stacy's life near the end and I'm assuming there will be a series and plenty of time to get to know Stacy, maybe. And even though the story doesn't really end; it does conclude enough to be satisfying. This is great SFF Military and Suspense and I think, because there were several threads or plot aspects that mirrored stories I've already read, I expected more emphasis on the characters and their story to keep the story fresh and new and that didn't quite come up to my expectations. For those who haven't read some of the same stories I have, this might well read as a top notch SFF Thriller. I definitely recommend reading it. J.L. Dobias

    Classic, B-movie military space opera, full of extermination, spaceships, weird aliens, explosions, and good guys who are as bad as the bad guys. Trashy in the best way, fun, entertaining, and with all the problems of militarism, supremacy, racism, and latent fascism that comes with the style.

    I really wanted to like this book. It had a good premise, technology is believable, and the setting makes sense, in a way. However the issue this books has is characters. This book takes place in roughly 60 years, after mankind has made massive leaps forward in technology and science. This leap is explained well, and doesn't throw up any red flags. The world is built in a natural way and overall it is a natural setting. However the characters are bland, lifeless and unrelatable. They all completel I really wanted to like this book.

The world is built in a natural way and overall it is a natural setting. However the characters are bland, lifeless and unrelatable. They all completely failed to connect with me in any way. There were a few too many POV's, and because the characters lacked charisma, charm or relatability, nothing in this book had any stakes. Characters were basically boiled down to basically 1 character trait and that was meant to serve as a back story and character development. The super smart girl, who is nervous about the position she's put in. The heroic Marine Lt. The hard ass drill Sgt. The billionaire who is behind everything. None of the characters are explored and none have any kind of authenticity. Ultimately, characters are the most important aspect of a story, and without relatable characters, who cares what happens? It frustrates me that American authors can't seem to pick a forum of measurement for sci-fi books. About a third of the book is in metric (kilometers, etc) and the rest is in imperial (yards, miles, etc). While I find it unlikely that the imperial system to make the leap into space navy days, if it did, I would hope it would be THE measurement system and not a half and half system. Also, Space Navy. Worse yet, American Space Navy, cause while they talk a lot about Atlantic Union, it was American ranks and customs. I did find it ironic that a soldier was telling another about how the Americans has saved her and her family. About how wonderful Americas were, and how they voluntarily risked their lives to help others. Meanwhile, in the real world, violent protests are happening in America, against the government, because they are asking people to wear masks, to keep their germs to themselves, and protect lives. It makes my eyes roll how Americans romanticize themselves in fiction. The narration, by Luke Daniels, was OK. His work on Frontlines is much better, but he brought some emotional reading to this book. His female voices are basically non existent, but overall he was OK. All in all, this is an OK premise, but presented with no emotional connection to the world it has created. If some strong, charismatic characters were added, the story may have some weight and be more enjoyable. As it stands now though it is uninteresting. I have book 2 as part of a 2 pack, so we'll see what that brings.

I mean the author briefly talks about a Crusade to free Europe from the enslaving Muslim invasion with damn templar crosses on American Marines. What the literal fuck? The aliens are fine if rather cookie cutter high tech drone tech. The actually plot seems fine if nothing really exciting or engaging with it being the whole “something about humanity gives hope to the universe that we are the best hope to save everything from the rampaging aliens”. You know despite us being centuries behind the tech curve and over 99% of the world population dead half way through the book. As you can guess I won’t be finishing the series.

    Richard Fox is by far my favorite Sci-Fi author of all time and I've been captivated by the Ember War series as a whole since book 1.. The character development from hero to villain is fantastic and is so good that the series as a whole doesn't rely on one or two characters to "carry" the series from book to book..

Can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Very good read, the story flows quickly, never letting up, which keeps the reader engaged. Character development is good but not particular deep. This is probably the major detractor as it denies the reading the ability to build empathy with the main characters. I hope that this changes with the later novels in the series.

I hope that this changes with the later novels in the series. For those "reviewers" who took umbrage with the author's fictional vision of the future e.g., a Muslim revolution in Europe or coldly calculating Communist Chinese, two points should be remembered: First, this is a work of fiction, period. Nothing about it is intended as a suggestion of what is to come rather, it is a "what if ..." scenario. Second, most looked at this as some sort of "neo-Nazi" sympathies or "white supremacist" vision. Nothing could be further from the truth.
