Absolutely hands-down favorite

Richard Fox is amazing. After listening to the Ember Wars I tried several other sci-fi stories. I was disappointed over and over, I then listened to some of my favorites (so I thought) from the past few years, they were also disappointing. He is just a freaking great author. An abundance of adventure, the right amount of humor and outstanding character development.
Luc Daniels nails it. As far as this type of sci-fi space adventure, they have set the bar.

Excellent ground forces sci fi tale

While not the most complex read, this novel kept my attention with its decent but not overwhelming detail of the various combat technologies used in its universe, as well as the very well fleshed out history of how humanity survived two alien invasions. The addition of the Iron Legion's religion was also a pleasure to read.

The only weak point for me in the story was how naive the main character is about combat,the military, and the history and culture of Earth's alien foes and friends. It took me some suspension of belief to ignore how a rather whiney and very unprepared young man somehow makes it through the training to join a kick-ass branch of cybernetic Marines. The lieutenants that train him and his care are certainly fleshed out to be very professional, but the main character really didn't come across as having the "right stuff"; only a very lucky chance encounter at the very beginning of the tale and a small religious "miracle" involving water dripping off a revered statue made the character stand out as being really exceptional in any way. He needed more of an edge, in my opinion.

Other than what I felt was a little weak characterization on the main character, the story was a very good read.

honestly great but too short

This is a great book with a fantastic performance but you are definitely wanting more. Fox needs to write longer books.

Great novel BUT.........

As usual, Richard Fox has turned out a fantastic novel in the Ember War universe and I enjoyed nearly every part of it but for one. Richard, if your ever going to use Australians again PLEASE don't use Barry McKenzie as a reference point for how we Australians speak, 99.9% of the dialogue used was pre-1970 if not earlier, it was so bad that I fast forwarded through it.

I'm not even going to mention Luke Daniels attempt at an Australian accent other than to say my ears are still bleeding.

The above two points aside, GREAT read, enjoyed it very much.

Great story and fantastic performance

Found the pace of the story a bit slow at times but even then it was still happening. Luke does a fantastic job with the many different voices, it's a joy to listen to.
