Publisher's Summary

They came from deep space. They came to destroy us.
Fifty years ago bloodthirsty aliens devastated the Earth. Most of humanity perished. We fell into darkness.
But now we rise from the ashes. Now we fight back.
Marco Emery was born into the war. After his mother is killed, he joins the Human Defense Force, Earth's ragtag army. Emery must survive basic training, become a soldier, and finally face the aliens in battle.
Against the alien onslaught, Earth stands alone. But we will fight. We will rise. We will win.
If you loved Ender's Game, Starship Troopers, and Old Man's War, you'll love Earthrise, a new military science fiction series. From a USA Today best-selling author.

Whew glad this is over. I wanted to scream at times at the whining and repeating over and over again the whining. I must admit I had to get up and leave the audio running so that I'd hopefully miss it. Finally it's over. I don't know why I'm giving it two stars.

a total and unabashed ripoff of starship troopers.

it's like if someone saw starship troopers and drunkenly was explaining it to a friend. Bugs, sensitive protagonist, cheesy military tropes, jock gf, super hot girl leaves said protagonist for "fleet" to be a lifer. I actually researched to see if the stories were related because this level of theft must be illegal?

Grow up.

It’s a good written story with a lot of potential. The first book is about Marco a young boy who is drafted in military in an after apocalyptic environment. Where earth is still under attack. The story focuses a lot about the camp life. It’s good but I can’t wait for the next book where I feel the story will really begin. I recommend the first book, just to know the Dragon company and how it all started. But I think the second book is where it really begins.

Boot Camp

Is there anything you would change about this book?

For a MilSciFi too little sci too much stereotypical boot camp and too little military action. For me chapter 1 and 2 into's chara... chapters 3 to 19-ish could be dropped as too tedious to bother with. As they say I'll never get that time back!

What could Daniel Arenson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

cut the bootcamp from 3/4 of book to 10%.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Performance was fine

Could you see Earth Alone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No NO No NO No!

Any additional comments?

Now i have to decide whether to waste another credit on next book or just abandon the author and write this off as experience

Author clearly did not research any technical subjects and editor must not have actually read the book. Purchase was a real regret.
