Publisher's Summary

Only an ember of humanity survived the first Xaros invasion. Now the Xaros return to deliver the final blow to Earth and her defenders.

A moon carrying an armada of Xaros drones unleashes its deadly cargo on the solar system. Fortress Mars stands between the enemy and an ill-defended Earth. While the battle rages over the red planet, the Breitenfeld must launch a desperate mission to Pluto to cut off enemy reinforcements.

Earth stands on the brink of ruin, and humanity needs every hero it can find to turn back the tide of destruction.

The Ember War enters its final stages in The Siege of Earth.

Best yet

It really was the best in the series. It's bs how audible broke these into such small chunks.

Keeps getting better!

This series is one of the best. The Ember War pulled me in, but Richard's characters and story kept me in the fight!

The Siege of Earth is action packed and takes the forces of Earth to places I would never have imagined!

Great work, Mr. Fox! Keep 'em coming!

Who's Standish?

I love that there isn't chapter after chapter of rehashing content for a new reader.

The call backs to previous books in the series are funny little Easter eggs for the dedicated fans.

Great story

This is probably the best series in sci-first I've found to.date. I will be eagerly awaiting the next book. If you are a fan of stargate, Star Wars or Battlestar Galactica. You should really enjoy this series.

Audible. Please get the rest of the series finished. The books are way ahead of you. If I've read them before you publish the audio version i won't need the audio. But I'd prefer the narations. The are very well done.

Very entertaining!

I like the inter-action between the different types of personalities that are made in the story. Although it is a little scary thinking about the possibility of someone's intelligence being stored in a mechanical device that may or may not have a soul.

sad it's over

but glad there will be another one. Luke Daniels was amazing as always, I will listen to almost anything he reads in the sci-fi and fantasy genres... can't wait for next book, so I will get something else and hope it's as good

Standish finally shines!

Completely Awesome! While the focus on our main characters never waivers, I finally got more of Standish, our lovable screwup of a Marine. While just as serious in tone as its predecessors, this book managed to pull a few more laughs out of me and it really connected. If you are this deep into the Ember War, you wont be let down by this book or its performance.
