The Xaros, a galaxy-wide scourge of murderous drones, have their sights set on the planet Takeni. Captain Isaac Valdar volunteers his ship to defend the innocent civilians and evacuate everyone he can. Pressed by an alien fleet in space and a horrifying foe on the surface, the Breitenfeld must risk everything to save the doomed populace.

Too much time in rescue, main plot didn't move on.

Too much time in rescue, main plot didn't move on. if I knew would have skipped this book

and also the book has over one hour of content from next book, common!

storyline

this book is much more of an easy listen to. the story is solid and a lot happens. there are times though when your listening and you think you know what is going on then it ends but because of the type of words used in this book it can be hard to tell if you're hearing things correctly. otherwise a great book to listen to. would recommend to anyone wanting more.

awesome!

I don't know how Luke Daniel's does it, but somehow he has the voice of 50 different people, I find myself forgetting the book is narrated by one person, he is amazing!

the story is amazing! I can not wait till book 4!

Best Darn Military Sci-Fi Series Out There

The Ember War Saga is what all military sci-fi books hope to be. Ship to ship space battles headed by a gritty skipper, salty marines kicking alien butt, the psychological aspects of war and possible extinction, the depths of human depravity and glory. All wrapped up in a shiny wrapper of some solid science of what could be and tied with a bow of political manipulation and power mongering. Luke Daniels, as always, gives a stellar performance. This saga is top shelf.

Great follow up!

If you liked the 1 and 2 combo, then you will like book 3! Characters and voices match and their personalities followed, the narrator does an amazing job making them feel like real people.

Excellent, possibly, probably better that 1&2

you can't go wrong with the author and narrator combo, I have read the first two and this book in less than two days and am diving into 4 and it's almost 2a.m. it will be time to cook my wife and kid breakfast soon, right as book for starts ramping up I suspect!

Felt cheated

although this is a well written and good sci-fi book, it is obvious that whoever just chopped the story up to sell more books. the books end at unusual places with little if any suspense.

Good, different story

15 words to describe what others have already done so well. This is a real action movie waiting to happen. Good bye Star Wars.

Entertaining but not too thought provoking

Have listened to better tales so I may not continue with this series. The story seems to have lost its way somehow.

ok

it's an ok book but there were times when I wished it would end soon. I found that I got lost and did not really know what was happening. thr performer is as usual amazing and without him I probably would not have known who was saying what
