I enjoyed these two fast-paced works of art immensely. Lovable characters, with nail biting twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat till the very end. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Great book but terrible accents from the narrator. Being Scottish I was a little upset but the Scandinavian was like Indian!
Really had to stick at listening for the first 3 chapters

I am quadriplegic and applaud Mr Fox's creativity in turning the disabled into powerful mech warriors. This is the first series I listened to where the disabled play an integral part of the story. The battles and fast paced action is entertaining but one of the core principles of the series is inspiring: ALL LIFE IS PRECIOUS human, alien, AI, tube grown humans, disabled, robots etc. Sentience is the means by which the universe is self-ware.
GOTT MIT UNS!

Space marines, giant robot armor, space battles, manipulative AI, mysterious aliens, and a human race struggling to start over from scratch while fighting a war that they have little understanding of...what more could you want?
"The Ember War" is so satisfyingly entertaining for science fiction adventure fans that it is a wander that it isn't a household name yet. The writing for it all has so much personality and characterization that the story's pacing is perfect. Richard Fox did a fantastic job putting this story together.
Then Luke Daniels does the narration and the audiobook experience will hook any listener instantly for the entire read through books 1 and 2. His ability to add personality to all these characters and make you care about each of them just using his voice is incredible.
"The Ember War" is definitely a series this reviewer will continue to follow and is highly, HIGHLY, recommended to anyone who has ever enjoyed any science fiction adventure on any form of media. Played "Halo" or "Mass Effect"? Watched "Robotech" or "Stargate SG-1"? Have you read "I, Robot" or "Enders Game"? Everything you have ever loved about any of those examples can be found here.
