Another Excellent book in the series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Well if your sucked into the series you have no choice but to recommend them.

What other book might you compare Born of the Ashes to and why?

No each book I read is different

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

None really, but the Author better keep JK he is an excellent voice actor. An audio book can succeed or fail on the voice actor. You change voice actor in this series of books would kill them. Pay whatever price he asks for. And no he is not my brother or cousin.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Aurora against all odds.

Any additional comments?

I wish he would write a longer book, Ben Bova seems give more bank for the buck. Plus I would think since this is a series the time between books would be shorter your just continuing with the story line. I would suggest you ask the readers to submit story line ideas. Might help in moving the story along faster. No they don't get paid and No they don't get credit. They get to see their idea on the written page and that should be enough

Brown is getting better with each book

In the last book, the Arora had the Jung battleship defeated and the Ghatazhak troops had found and rescued his father. Nathan had killed his brother in a stand-off. The Jung were attempting to destroy all the major cities on Earth.

The Jung battle fleet is almost to Earth. The Aurora and Celestia are racing to repair severe battle damage and get the Celesta’s jump drive operational. The messenger with the Data Storage containers has reached Tug (Prince Casimin) and he has set about to obtain ships and crew to set a fleet to help the Arora.

The Ghatazhak troops are fighting insurgent skirmishes on Earth while the spaceships are trying to fix the ships, manufacture parts and find basic raw or salvaged materials for the replicators. The suspense builds as the Jung Fleet keeps getting closer and a massive battle platform is missing. Is it on the way to Earth? Then the battle begins: the Aurora and Celestia against two Jung battleships and their protecting ships and a battle platform coming.

Brown keeps improving with each book. The characters continuing to mature and develop with each book. The story continues to becoming more complicated as there are more people and side stories evolving. We are left with a cliff hanger as the Jung fleet arrives and the battle begins. I am so glad I discovered this series; it is turning out to be one of the better military sci-fi series.

Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating the story. Kafer has narrated all the books in the series so far. I think it is critical to have the same narrator for an entire series.
