Publisher's Summary

Earth burns.

We call them the scum. They came from deep space. Creatures of claws and endless malice, they ravage the world.

As the war flares, as cities crumble, Private Marco Emery and his platoon blast into space. They won one battle on Earth. Their next battle must be fought in the darkness.

The scum will not rest until the last human is dead. Marco and his friends must defeat them. They must win. Or Earth will fall.

    "A disappointment"

    The first book in the series was not. Ad at all and I enjoyed listening to that. But this one? It's like a bad mix between "Starship Troopers", "Aliens" and some juvenile horror story. And only the bad parts. How could Arenson manage to destroy the believable story from the first book? It's like a bad movie where they cover a weak story by using too many special effects. A disappointment!

    Story
    "Marco, Addy, Lailani and Kemi are now in space."

    Among the fifty hand-picked soldiers aboard the HDFS Miyari, Marco Emery was on his way to the Nightwall Outpost, a space station on the front lines of the war with the Scum. They will train to fight alongside the Latona Company, a unit of the legendary Erebus Brigade - an elite fighting force in the Space Territorial Command. Under the command of Lt. Einav Ben-Ari and Sergeant Singh, the new Ravens Platoon also included Addy, Lailani, Elvis, Beast and Corporal Diaz from the training class at Fort Djemila.
    The Latona Company is commanded by Captain Coleen Petty. After a dreadful first meeting, Addy dubbed her Captain Chihuahua. Their new uniforms awaiting them at the Outpost, the Ravens still wore their ratty old green fatigues, looking like second class soldiers next to the elite of the Erebus Brigade. And to pile on the pain for Marco, a couple hours before their hyperspace drive is fired a shuttle arrives delivering Cadet Kemi Abasi. She's managed to get assigned to shadow Lt. Ben-Ari in the field. Now Marco has to deal with both Lailani and Kemi. Add to the mix an android named Osiris, and we're ready for a disastrous trip.
    Under way in hyperspace a distress call is received from the Corpus Mining Colony, they drop out of warpspace to investigate. What follows is some of the best battle drama and action I've ever had the privilege of reading. Love and death mix with mayhem and mystery as the Ravens fight to survive against a new type of Scum. The action is fast and furious. This is one terrific story and I cannot wait to read more!

    "Speeches"

    To many speeches, girlfriends and I want to go home lines. Remember the president's speech in Independent Day. You get it about 5 times in this book.

    "The end was a blessing"
    What disappointed you about Earth Lost?

    It was amateur and forced. Just a jumble of cliche BS with no direction.


    Has Earth Lost turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love the genre. That is how I know how good it can be.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    He did well, there just was not alot for him to work with.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Some stories you can't wait to get to the end, this one I could not wait for the end, it could not come quick enough.

    "Bad B movie in book form"

    I picked up the first book and you get the B version of Starship Troopers. At least that's what I kept thinking to myself. However, was semi entertained with the listen. Purchased the second book, it gets so implausible that it is just bad. I will not purchase the third.

    "Jumping the Shark is an ending"

    The first book tried to be Starship Troopers, but this one tried to be Dead Space. It was enjoyable enough to finish, so it gets a passing score... but it was poorly constructed.

    2 dimensional characters, repetitive dialogue that felt like a padded essay, tonal changes in every chapter. I enjoyed the story, but the writing was, sadly, in need of a good editor.

    "Meh"

    I thought that the first book in this series was OK but kind of bland but had some good potential. The second book felt forced and as bland as the first. I Don't like talking poorly about books because the effort involved in birthing one is significant and I love that authors are doing this for us but I would not recommend this book and I regret the time I spent listening.

    "Some scenes went on too long"
    Any additional comments?

    Had me saying out loud "all right already, lets move on!" But otherwise an OK book. I like them to be closer to 10 hours to feel like I'm getting my credit's worth.... This series is a bit too short per "book". Reminds me a little of Aliens........
