Publisher's Summary

The final battle begins.

The Xaros Masters destroyed Bastion, the Alliance against the alien invaders has failed. Earth stands against the full force of the enemy's unending drone fleets.

With their backs against the wall, Captain Valdar and the Breitenfeld must lead a last ditch mission to end the war against the Xaros.

Can humanity pay the price for ultimate victory?

    "Excellent series. I am sad it is over."
    Where does The Xaros Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10 for sure Luke Daniels portrays each character so well. I could really get into each character and it felt like they truly had their own personalities.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is hard to just pick one. There are so many.


    What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

    Everything. He does a great job with all the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is in my top 10 for sure. Now it is over and I am sad. I'm going to miss hearing about all the characters and what they are up to now. I can't help but think what the Ibarra's are up to now....

    "Fantastic Ending"

    This book is a fantastic conclusion to such an epic story. It resolved conflict, gave some answers but still left just enough questions hanging to let the readers imagine pick up where the story leaves off. Great!

    "awsome completely enjoyable"

    I've enjoyed this series completely. it balanced action with humor drama with empathy. it shows what we could be and what we might hope to be. and balance with that we must give up or lose should we ever encounter aliens.

    I've been writing software for over twenty years. Most of the books in my collection are science fiction or computer related materials.

    "Love the Ember War series!"

    This book was one I've been anxiously awaiting the release of. I am happy that it's put some closure on the story while also leaving the door open for future books! Very well done work by Richard Fox and I have always enjoyed Luke Daniels narration skills.

    "Characters can be a bit petulant"

    The characters seem a bit bratty and flat.
    I enjoyed the series but I don't think it's worth 9 credits

    "Read or listen to this series now!"

    Most enjoyable sci-fi series I have ever listened too! Believable characters that you feel you know. As an ex serviceman I could relate to every member of the troop. This would make an excellent Tv series or films. Thank you Richard Fox.

    "funny, charming and with likable characters"

    I've loved this set of books from start to finish. I've enjoyed getting to know the characters and I'm absolutely gutted to be finished. it's not a perfect book, it was just right for me though. Suspend disbelief and just enjoy it.

    "An incredible end."

    This is by far the best book in the saga by a country mile. It is also by far, the most emotionally charged instalment.
