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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
Books 1 and 2 set the outline and this book delivered pulling the story together. A great book and the narrator was out standing in the different voices, really bringing it all together.
I cannot stress enough how much I enjoyed this series, great science fiction and military drama, the author creates an incredible universe and fills it with great characters, the narrator is fantastic
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
