Publisher's Summary

A thousand years ago, an alien invasion set humanity back to the Iron Age. Slowly, we recovered, colonizing the Solar System in peace. And discovered that an unknown force is stopping us from exploring any farther. But before the cause can be discovered, a slow-burning conspiracy threatens to explode into System-wide war. With enemies at home and in the darkness beyond, a team of unlikely heroes-a janitor, a mercenary, an asteroid miner, and a pirate-are the only ones who can avert a second apocalypse. This set includes the first three books of the newly-finished REBEL STARS series.

Enjoyed the inclusion of a complete Rada backstory

After ordering this, I quickly realized that I had previously purchased Books 1&2 of this series. While I could have requested a refund, I decided to listen to Book 0, Rebel, based on the strength of Edward W. Robertson's writing skills and enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue to listen to books 1&2 and forget the refund, it was that good.

If you haven't listened to this series previously, I highly recommend it if you are interested in s skillfully written and engaging story and having the pleasure of a top-tier narrator in Ray Chase performance.

1000 Years After the Breakers What Happened?

Big fan of both Ray Chase and Edward W. Robertson, having enjoyed all 9 books in the Breakers Series, so I looked forward to these books carrying the saga forward. I know that 1000 years had passed so all the characters from the Breakers would be long dead but these books took awhile to get going. It seemed like the most interesting and important thing that happened in all three of these books occurred right at the end of the 3rd book, the return of the Swimmers and the introduction of a 2nd alien species. Which creatures (spoiler alert) we never get to meet in any way because we get caught up in some corporate space wars.
True, Robertson had to establish a whole new set of worlds and characters, (which he did with the Locker with its gangs and military spacers and the hive with its young genius billionaire and techno nerds) but that took three books to accomplish. So maybe we get to meet the new aliens and find out why they don't want us traveling beyond the solar system in book 3?
I certainly hope so, and that audible will get the issues with further books in the series resolved.
As always, kudos for the fierce, powerful female characters and the totally cool with that and equally interesting male characters.
I guess I'm spoiled by Robertson's incredible feat of creating the Breakers amazing journey and I miss those guys! In any case, this mild disappointment won't keep me from reading more Robertson or from downloading book 3 if it becomes available for audible and in the mean time starting on the 3rd series of Robertson books available here.
BTW Ray Chase is the perfect reader for these books. All the characters are given unique voices. His energy rises and falls with the action. He's always got good pronunciation and genius understanding of how the lines should read. In 12 books, there's only one place where I would have read the line differently. Plus his female voices sound female without sounding like imitation women. Big fan!

Great start to an interesting series

Reviewing publishers pack - books 0, 1, and 2 of this six book series. In a nutshell, I really enjoyed all three of these books, and I’m looking forward to the next three books.

I suspect that book 0 was written after book one, but I’m not certain of that. In any event, it fits in perfectly, and it tells the backstory of these characters, but it’s not filler at all. It’s a very engrossing story developing the characters who continue on in the later books. I love character development, and Edward W. Robertson certainly gives that to us here.

I’ll give a big tip of my hat to the author because each of the books is a complete the story within the book, and you don’t have to buy the next book to see what happens. Your do want to buy the next book, though, because the overarching plot continues, the characters are great and you do want to see where those characters go. I hate it when an author basically cuts the story in half forcing the reader to buy the next book to find out what happens. That’s lazy riding. This author will cause me to buy all six of the books, because I’m engrossed in the overall story and I love the characters.

I also am thankful for the excellent narration by Ray Chase. Great job! A note about the narration of the swimmers character: one reviewer gave up on the books quickly, because he could not handle the swimmers‘ voice. It would be irritating if that was the general narration for the book, but the swimmers narration occurs for no more than a combined 10 or 15 minutes in the entire book, so I didn’t find it problematic at all, and in fact, it was a great contrast in style.

The way it's written allows the story to play smooth in my head. Perfect Narrator too! I love the story of Sid and Kansas.

excellent narration great space opera

loved the narrator's performance he lent real depth to the characters

thi should become a classic in our genre as it explores key issues of modern life and a supposed life in the greater solar system. there is enough science in it to get your "what if" glands pumping and just the right blend of plot twust and turns to keep it interesting. well worth it

Monotone narrator

Hard to tell if all of the characters are emotionless robots or not with the dull narrator

Great Sci-Fi. Very real, & interesting characters.

I've been a fan of E.W. Robertson's fantasy world for many years (The Cycles of Arawn & Galand, The Scour, etc.). Decided to try his space works in-between new tales there. These are VERY different, of course, and yet VERY similar [varying genre aside] in that the character development is superb, as is the creativity of those characters [i.e. EWR, of course] and the situations they find themselves in. By the time I finished books 0, 1, and 2, & had purchased books 3, 4, & 5. And I can't wait to continue . . .

LOVED IT

If you liked Edward Robertson's Breaker series, you will love this one it is a continuation of the Breaker series 1000 years in earths future. Just like before humanity is at the brink of annihilation by an alien species with a new twist. Excelente storytelling, great narrator. 5 stars.

entertaining listen

Entertaining listen. Held my attention, and I liked the characters. If there was a downside, I would have liked one longer story rather than the shorter ones.
