    Roland Shaw is armor. At least that’s what he’ll tell you when asked. He’s also a captured prisoner of the Ibarrans, held in a cell Navarre, capital of the Ibarran Nation. How he got there is the story contained in the second book in this series. Now he has to deal with where he’s at and realize that he failed in his mission. Except his mission wasn’t as he thought it would be. Now he starts to learn some interesting details about the Ibarrans that he wasn’t getting from his Armored Corps leader Roland Shaw is armor. At least that’s what he’ll tell you when asked. He’s also a captured prisoner of the Ibarrans, held in a cell Navarre, capital of the Ibarran Nation. How he got there is the story contained in the second book in this series. Now he has to deal with where he’s at and realize that he failed in his mission. Except his mission wasn’t as he thought it would be. Now he starts to learn some interesting details about the Ibarrans that he wasn’t getting from his Armored Corps leaders. In fact, and surprisingly, the prisoner in the cell next to his is none other than Marc Ibarra, the grandfather of the two Ibarra’s who seemed to have deserted the Earth and Terran Union when things weren’t going their way. Stacy Ibarra is apparently very much in charge of the Ibarran Nation and rules with an iron fist. But, as Roland is soon to find out, there really isn’t that much difference in what the Ibarran Nation wants to do than what his own Terran Union is striving for. Still, the Terran Union has branded the Ibarrans as traitors to the Union and anyone aligned with them is a Terran Union enemy. Yet, the members of the Ibarran Nation are the same people Roland has joined with since becoming Armor. There are numerous Armor Corps soldiers serving the Ibarran Nation and they are just as devoted to their cause as anyone else. The Ibarran Nation sees an alien threat that the Terran Union refuses to recognize. While the war with the Xaros may be over, there are other aliens who would be pleased to see humanity destroyed. Now that the Terran Union is part of the Galactic Alliance, they much adhere to the Hale Treaty which clearly states that humanity cannot create the proccies that was perviously used to help win the Xaros war. Proccies are genetically engineered humans that can and were grown in huge tubes taking only nine days to fully develop. These proccies were given false memories and when fully awaked assumed they were natural born humans but they were bread to fight. The ability to process humans this quickly definitely frightened other alien races so they wanted that practice to stop and that’s what the Terran Union gave up to get the Hale Treaty signed. Except the Ibarrans didn’t want to sign the treaty and fled Union space and set up their own nation. Now as a prisoner, Roland is going to find things out about the Ibarran Nation that he didn’t know and would have never known. He’s placed under the training of another Armor Corps Templar named Nicodemus. Nicodemus is the one who defeated and captured Roland. Why he wants to train Roland is somewhat of a mystery, but again, these Armor Corps soldiers aren’t much different than those of the Terran Union. Roland realizes this after awhile and his attitude slowly changes, but he still knows that he’s a Terran Armor Corps soldier and must return to their ranks as soon as he can. Then the aliens attack. The Ibarran Nations are rallied to go and repel this invasion when at the same time the Terran Armor Corps show up. Can these two supposed enemies join forces to defeat a common threat or will they find themselves fighting aliens and humans at the same time. And who’s side will Roland stand with. He definitely wants to fight the aliens and is given Ibarran armor to do so, but what if he has to fight the Terrans? Good book. A little heavy on the mystical and religious aspect of the Templars and that is kind of confusing, but I guess it makes for a better story. I’m interested in reading the next book some time in 2018.

    So I just finished the latest edition of Christians in space... I'm teasing a little with the first sentence. I am generally agnostic by heart, but I respect the authors theistic elements of the story without much prejudice. I do feel that the Religious elements have been slowly ramping up throughout this new series, to the point where I feel at the end of the book there's going to be an advertisement that says "JOIN YOUR LOCAL CHURCH TODAY!", but the rest of the story far outweighs anything nega So I just finished the latest edition of Christians in space...

    Solid And Entertaining Story Continues With Laudable Writing Execution “The True Measure (Terran Armor Corps Book 3),” authored by Mr. Richard Fox, is a solid and entertaining story, that continues the engaging storyline, written with laudable writing execution. Humanity, in a near time future, having narrowly adverted its own extinction by genocidal aliens, still finds itself endangered, as it navigates a conspiracy laden alliance with other surviving sentient races of the Milky Way Galaxy. Some Solid And Entertaining Story Continues With Laudable Writing Execution “The True Measure (Terran Armor Corps Book 3),” authored by Mr. Richard Fox, is a solid and entertaining story, that continues the engaging storyline, written with laudable writing execution. Humanity, in a near time future, having narrowly adverted its own extinction by genocidal aliens, still finds itself endangered, as it navigates a conspiracy laden alliance with other surviving sentient races of the Milky Way Galaxy. Some of the alien races are true allies, while a number are actively working to eliminate what they view as a powerful threat of humanity’s continued existence. The “Ibarra Nation,” the nexus of humanity’s survival, have splintered away from Earth, seeing a long term danger to humanity, from threats within the Terran government, and alien intrigues. The religious and mystical order of Terran Armor, essential to survival has also split, some remaining with Earth, while the remainder joining the Ibarras, as they view their oath to protect humanity sacrosanct, beholden to humanity, not to any Terran government. Old enemies, not fully extinguished as thought, are on the rise, utilizing zealot alien races, and determined to finish the genocide of humanity, starting anew their intrigues. The story in “The True Measure,” is heavily dependent on earlier books of the series, and of “The Ember Wars” series, but not to the degree that a new reader would be lost. Instead, Mr. Fox has weaved a story that any reader can enjoy, a story character driven, of good versus evil, survival versus extinction. Herein the author, Mr. Fox, should be lauded for his writing execution. Too often authors have decent stories, yet they do not spend the effort on the “nuts and bolts” of writing: creating cogent, coherent sentences, intelligent narratives, and understanding the basic needs of a book; it needs to be readable. Mr. Fox, expends the efforts needed to create a readable book. The story has multiple dynamics at play. On one level, it is a simple, space opera, an alien vs humans “shoot them up.” Bad guys vs the goods guys, with welcome, light handed humor interspersed throughout. On another level, there is a deeper context, of morality and ethics at play, often at conflict with near term needs. Opting for the least bad choice amongst only bad choices perceived, is an ever present dilemma. The belief that sacrifice of self, to protect those in need of protection, is one of the most noblest aspects of humanity, is evident. Mr. Fox, forms these concepts with a light hand, writing what this reader views as a parable story, applicable to many contemporary issues. It is not just entertaining, but fascinating as well. “The True Measure,” is highly recommended. The book was fully read via Kindle Unlimited.

    Well, OK I’ve read the first 3 books in this series, and as far as I’m concerned, the 3rd book is by far the best one yet. Like the prior books it had a tendency to drag. Sometimes it seemed like the author was being paid by the word and didn’t give too much thought as to how they meshed with the rest of the story. It’s a good story, but I fail to see how it won such a prestigious award. I’m pretty sure I’ve read Jay Allan books that deserved the award more. But that’s just me.

    It just keeps getting better Not often do I continuously search to see if a new book has arrived by authors I have found on Kindle, but I can honestly say I do with this one. The mythology, the characters and overall pace of this series is exactly what I wanted after The Ember War Series ended. I Loved Elias from the Ember War, and reading more and more into this series makes me really care about Roland as well. Continue the work sir. I’ll keep reading and enjoying it. Thank you!

    We just keep going down the rabbit hole. Great so far. I am really feeling sad for Roland, and am curious to see where he ends up in the next book. Hopefully it all ends well. I am disappointed that we still never got to learn what happened to his potential girlfriend, and his friend that joined when he did. I feel like it took some form of effort for the author to introduce them really early on and then take them off the board for no reason. It just dosen't make much sense to me. Overall great b We just keep going down the rabbit hole. Great so far. I am really feeling sad for Roland, and am curious to see where he ends up in the next book. Hopefully it all ends well.

    The True Measure A never more aptly named book. I will assume for the moment that you have read the previous two books and know the overall story arc. If you have read them then I will not spoil this story by giving you hints, just know that you are in for a serious mind scramble. There are lots of little twists and turns, you better hope that you have your seatbelt buckled and your tray tables locked forward.

    I really wish that the Terran Armor would have met up with the Ibarra Armor and that everything would be okay and that Giddeon would have forgiven them all and they would have just been a really big happy Amor family and that Earth and Ibarra would have merged and become one large colony again :( I'm kind of glad that didn't happen though because it wouldn't have left much room for things to progress, interested to see how things are going to turn out in the next book!

    This author sure has an active imagination. He is able translate his vivid imagination into a really good storyline. Good plot .... Lots of action .... good character development. The only downside is following all the fancy things the weapons, crucible gates, wormholes, etc. bring to the story. Would highly recommend.

    The beat goes on Richard Fox has a knack for capturing the feel, smell and sound of space action adventure. He's hooked this reader again in "The Terran Armor Corps" books. Get hold of this series..You'll like it. The beat goes on Richard Fox has a knack for capturing the feel, smell and sound of space action adventure.

    Great continuation of story Great twist. This brings the last story some closure to only open a few more cans of worms. Not sure I want to keep going in circles with the series though? The story is as always a written well and a good read, But.

    This series is an oasis for me. Hits all the right notes in the sci fi genre that I have been missing since Babylon 5 and Stargate or Space Above and Beyond. Viva la Indie Revolution.

    Great work here. I read these fast and had really enjoyed the Ember War books. Now with this new series I am seeing a lot of the old characters mixed in with some new ones and it is just great.
