Publisher's Summary

It's all-out war.

Our cities fall. Millions die. The scum, these cruel aliens from deep space, are determined to kill us all.

So we must kill them.

Humanity musters its greatest fleet. Thousands of starships rally. Millions of soldiers deploy. For Earth to stand a chance, we must invade the aliens' home world. We must destroy their planet.

Before they destroy ours.

Earth's fleet flies through space. We fly toward millions of enemy ships. We fly to almost certain death. This will be the hour humanity falls...or the hour of our greatest victory.

    "eh..."

    this book was... just ok. without spoiling I can't really say much but... the climax was trite and the characters were forgettable. I kept hoping that certain things would come to fruition and I was sadly disappointed. it seems that at the end the author was building up to another story but... eh. nah, I'm good.

    Story
    "The war for Earth's future continues"

    The gloves are off, and the Human Defense Force prepares an all-out invasion of the Scum homeworld, Abaddon. Leading the attack and tasked with killing the Scum emperor are Corporals Marco Emery, Addy Linden and Lailani Marita de la Rosa. The platoon is again commanded by Lt. Einav Ben-Ari who has filled squads with STC veterans of Scum attacks and hive invasions, Sergeants all.
    The planning, preparation and training for the mass attack against Abaddon take place on the rogue planet, Nightwall, headquarters of the Space Territorial Command. As the fleet assembles, hundreds of thousands of spacecraft, from the L16 Fighting Firebirds to massive battleships and transports, carrying millions of combined HDF and STC troops, prepare to battle against hundreds of millions of Scum in the air and on the ground of Abaddon. Oh, and add in one Lt. Kemi Abasi flying one of the Firebirds.
    The gripping combat action, the fantastic, exotic sceneries and the richly believable characters continue to the depth that only Daniel Arensen can provide. This third saga in the Earth Rise series is the best so far. I've fallen in love with the characters, especially Addy with all her bravado and aggression, masking the frightened child who watched her parents die, eaten by Scum. The training and combat descriptions are thorough and frankly terrifying, so well written that I laugh, cry, ache and bleed along with Marco, Addy and Lailani.
    I can highly recommend this book to all, especially lovers of sci-fi action. I know you'll enjoy the book and the series as much as I did! And now the hard part - waiting for the next book in the Earthrise series, Earth Fire.

    "great narrator makes a bad book ok."

    struggled to finish. all three so far have been narrated wonderfully but the story is just, well, lacking. NOT up to the author's usual.

    Story
    "Struggled through this one"
    What did you like best about Earth Rising? What did you like least?

    The action was fairly constant, which was nice. Some poor terminology. I'm a stickler for this. Aircraft have instrument panels, cars have dashboards. Aircraft have control sticks, video games have joy sticks.


    What was most disappointing about Daniel Arenson’s story?

    I found that the characters would face seemingly insurmountable odds, yet still win. Didn't make sense.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I liked the consistency of the character voicing. Some of the dialogue was corny, and tiresome.


    Was Earth Rising worth the listening time?

    Only if one has made it through the first two.


    Any additional comments?

    Had I known then, what I know now, I wouldn't have started the trilogy.

    "awesome"

    love this book, it was exciting and terrifying at the same time they could make a movie about this book. If you'd love sci-fi Terror then this audiobook is for you. can't wait to read audiobook number 4

    Another enjoyable novel in the Earthrise series. This is a great narrator that keeps the story moving along.

    Story
    "Repetition - good for learning, bad as story plot"

    Basically a decent idea for story. Honestly though Chapters 20-23 were so repetitive; at first tiresome but progressed into irksome and finally painful. Author I know you can do better please DO better!

    "We will rise like Phoenix, again and again"

    Anther great book from the series, it’s all about survival and fighting. You can’t escape the scum only fight them. The book keeps you interested all the way until the end. I recommend this book as it was a pleasure reading it. A very good audiobook.
