Publisher's Summary

The best-selling, epic space adventure, Freedom's Fire: the complete series of six audiobooks, in one box set.

It was never a question of if the aliens would come, it was only ever when. 

The first interstellar war, a generation ago, left humanity enslaved. Now, humans fight in the armies of their masters to save themselves from annihilation. 

At least, that's what the propaganda insists is true. What the layers of lies keep hidden is how badly the new war is going for the people of earth.

Now, it's Dylan Kane's turn to blast into the heavens and join the battle, but what his masters don't know is that, by putting a weapon in his hands, they're giving him the key to unlocking his hopes of freedom.

When the rail-gun slugs are tearing through his ship and the vacuum is sucking the life out of his wounded friends, will Dylan's years of repressed rage turn into enough bravery to make his dream come true?

The Freedom's Fire series in this special edition includes:

  • Audiobook one: Freedom's Fire
  • Audiobook two: Freedom's Fury
  • Audiobook three: Freedom's Fray
  • Audiobook four: Freedom's Fist
  • Audiobook five: Freedom's Fall
  • Audiobook six: Freedom's Fate

A number one Amazon.com best seller in space marine science fiction.

Overall good book..... but

the only issue I had with the book which is my opinion was a big one almost every character seemed to have a very negative attitude and after listening the book for 36 hours you really start to feel negative yourself. it is a dystopian environment the one wishes for a couple more emotional highs.

Its interesting

I originally was not going to get this series from the reviews on Amazon(the book review). The critique of first person narrative had me thinking that book had done a poor job in that regard and getting a whole series was a waste. I just finished book 1. I can honestly say I don't understand critique. I thought the first person narrative was nicely done. The concept of not knowing what everyone is doing at any given moment, actually adds interest for me. So...if you read those reviews....subtract some credibility.

On the first book, there are some flaws....mainly, I have a hard time with the fight scenes....generally, its that I have a hard time picturing what is actually going on and what choices the MC has within that picture. I either felt that he was super human(which, I guess he does have a bug in his head), or too simplistic in tactics(which is an explained flaw for all "parties" in this book) The bug in his head seems to be only a plus in this first book....although I keep feeling that this is all a dream sequence and we are going to find out this is all a simulation. The tactic aspect is less excusable and less interesting. This is the larger flaw in the book. I am never impressed by the tactics or immediate battle choices in the book...big flaw.

However, the character back stories, the possible paths that can flow from those back stories....it is really interesting. Think evil twin.

I think its worth a credit...the first book supports that. Is the entire series worth it...not sure, will update when I get there.(assuming I remember)

Great listen

I didn't want it to end. Some reviews talked about the negative attitude of some of the characters but I thought it didn't take away from the story. Everything can't be wonderful when you're fighting a battle for humanity.

A spell bounding space series.

This story kept me rivoted to the pages and again with audio. A super drama of what could happen in our futures. I whole heartedly recommend this book.

Well, it could be worse

In my opinion, poor writing and shallow plot detracts from a serviceable concept.

The idea of fighting back against alien overlords is unique, and I love how the author take the time to highlight how ruinious the aliens have been. However, the human characters who we're supposed to empathize with get in their own way. People acting "loving" or "emotional" come off as mechanical and disingenuous.

The plot is somewhat interesting, but would be better suited for a "just shoot things" video game. The little explanation given feels very forced, to the point that major details are dumped in "flashback" form right before they're relevant.

The first person narration makes it easy to envision yourself in the story, but the mechanical and quick descriptions of the MC's actions and feelings don't land.

Exciting space and ground battles!

I really enjoyed this series. Controlling gravity makes the Invaders of Earth invincible. The North Korean government sides with the Invaders and subdues the population at the behest of our new masters. Greg Tremblay gives a great performance with appropriate inflection, and It's easy to distinguish between characters as he acts each part.
Bobby Adair created very thoughtful characters who have a lot of emotion. Sometimes there are conversations that are a little long, but thought provoking, and also build the background of the main characters.
The boxed set brings the story to a conclusion with plenty of room for future sequels.

If you're a fan of sci-fi, then you'll love these

simply great, amaZing, nothing else to ask for.. but more books!! Great story, has everything.. fight scenes, technical talk about upgrading a spaceship to become a beast in space. Has some love hooks but not enough to get in the way of this epic space adventure.

thoroughly enjoyed them

I'm a SyFy Junkie, and this was a very satisfying set of books 35 hours for one credit is a bargain and then to be entertained the whole way through by this author's Style was pleasant, and the story was solid enjoyed the author's sense of humor throughout

Great story, good character development

The narrator imbues the characters with personality and their vocalizations impart the proper amount of sarcasm, wit, anger and frustration to those characters. I only wish we had had a chance to see more into Nicki's thoughts and get more insight into the Grey's thinking. I would love to know how Prolific Mankiller' s storyline progressed. Unfortunately, the ending feels rushed and only hints at the

Boys Own fun

I bought this box set more for the length than anything else, but was pleasantly surprised.
Earth, subjugated by the Grey's has suffered 30 years of slavery and decline. Humans are a resource to be fought over and exploited but revolution is in the air. Can they defy the odds and win?
This series is not as thought prevoking as the Expance or Altered Carbon nor is it as funny as The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy or the Bobiverse. I did like it but didn't quite fall in love with the characters as they are not fleshed out enough for me.
Greg Tremblay was very good, able to switch between characters without difficulty and to give each a unique voice.
This series is worth a listen. The chapters are short, the story hangs together and if you like irony and self deprecation then this story will probably work for you.

Great listening

This is a good SiFi srory to listen too, this presents great value too, for me this restored my faith in writers to take you into a total adventure right the way to the conclusion, leaving the way open to continue another adventure. The narrator was also good. Thank you .

Leave Brain at the Door. Great Storytelling

Wonderfully vast saga of what humans can do when there no option but fight.
Smart ass grunts and great battles in space and on surface. Really gets you in the universe book describes.
A little bit of tech to confirm a realistic world.
Just a good book to forget your woes and be with a hero for a few hours. Buy it now

Excellent space opera and good value for money

I can't quite remember how I found this box set but I'm glad I did. More and more now I look at the number of hours of listening I can get for my valuable monthly credit and I wasn't disappointed with this little gem. The story is well structured and the technology used by both sides makes sense. I particularly liked the grav. plate technology that is used extensively. I've not heard of anything like this in any other books, the nearest is probably the membrane technology in the Forever series. I really liked the interaction between the characters and was genuinely shocked when we lost some of them.

Solid all rounder

It's a good story we'll told, it doesn't mess around and gets to the action quickly and there is reasonable character development, although sometimes it can feel like the characters make large behavior changes with little lead up.

Ok but not great.

the story was ok but hard to follow at times, seemed to jump around, making some sections bland. Good characters though.
