A world in chaos…
An eager new ally…
A newly acquired ship…
An even greater threat on its way…
Captain Nathan Scott must decide whether to stand and fight to the end, or live to fight another day - even if it means the end of his world.

This is Brown's best yet. His characterizations are becoming well-developed with real emotions and real problems. Nathan Scott has matured into someone far wiser than his years, which one would expect considering his past 8 months. The plot continues to interest and occasionally surprise. Can't wait for the next installment.
IT Project Manager in CA. I would say I am a Audio Book Addict...
I have every book in the series and would place it in the category as these space series -- The Lost Fleet by Jack Campbell, Kris Longknife by Mike Sheperd, and Cassandra Kresnov by Joel Shepperd.
Well if your sucked into the series you have no choice but to recommend them.
No each book I read is different
None really, but the Author better keep JK he is an excellent voice actor. An audio book can succeed or fail on the voice actor. You change voice actor in this series of books would kill them. Pay whatever price he asks for. And no he is not my brother or cousin.
Aurora against all odds.
I wish he would write a longer book, Ben Bova seems give more bank for the buck. Plus I would think since this is a series the time between books would be shorter your just continuing with the story line. I would suggest you ask the readers to submit story line ideas. Might help in moving the story along faster. No they don't get paid and No they don't get credit. They get to see their idea on the written page and that should be enough
I listen to most if not all the great space opera series on audible and this to me really is the best series, starting from the first book in this series each book gets better and better.
I really like how Ryk Brown builds his story from the beginning of the book to an always dramatic conclusion, the tensions slowly builds and even though each book is part of a series and unlike many other books in a series you always feel satisfied with where the book ended while still looking forward for the next book to see where it all leads to. Very strong character development throughout the series I really care about the characters.
Kafer is fantastic well beyond average he is perfect for this series.
Nv Native American, 1 room school house, hi school of 30, Raised 4-2& 2 ala Brady Bnch, lv audio books, home bound widow. M happy. Thnx AB.
All things age and hopefully do it gracefully but the Aurora and the Celestia (the earths space fleet) are doing it by fire,literally ! The too young Captain with his original cobbled together crew have had to grow quickly and achieve the experienced warrior sheen in weeks not years!
Born of Ashes reveals the troubles, the trauma, the melding that occurs
in battles with an enemy who is merciless and wants total anilation. It also shows the respect, the kinship that knits many individuals to a fighting unit. Simply, Born of the Ashes is another sleep robber because from the first listen, there's just never a good place to stop it! You place in the Gold again Mr. Brown and Mr. Kafer!
Voracious listener of most things. Prefer Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Adventure/Spy stories.
It's been a while since I read book 10 and it took me a while to place the characters in a number of cases. But once I was back into the flow the story moved along quickly and was as enjoyable as the rest of the series.
I have read them all over the last 10 years and this is by far a 10 out of 10 Series.
And the Narrator is responsible for much of that! After all these are Audio novels and the narrator plays a big part in making it successful . Let me simply say that you will not regret the credits you spend. It will be difficult to put this one down!!! Congratulations to the Author, lest I forget to give him his due!
One would think it would start to get predictable, but Ryk Brown still manages to surprise you most of the time. This is already a fully developed Universe and you are but another soldier in the fight!
Very complicated battle descriptions. Need to hear several times to visualize better. Also will miss several characters who were lost in battle.
His inflexions to illustrate the excitement and the emotion of the quotations.
When is #12 becoming available?
Some one who enjoys fiction, especially space based. I also enjoy historical books, and documentaries.
I would listen to the entire saga again. Even though the saga is rather unbelievable it still offers the reader with plenty of action and emotion.
I really liked the players, their attitude, friendships and struggles. This series is really unbelievable and even outlandishly unbelievable while still having you siding with the main players and supporting their efforts.
There are two, the CHANG and the Security Officer.
Both laugh, and cheer.
