The Ember War review

51wxqcXXonL. SX331 BO1204203200 The Ember War

A dire warning. An impending alien invasion. Only one chance for survival.

In the near future, an alien probe arrives on Earth with a pivotal mission—determine if humanity has what it takes to survive the impending invasion by a merciless armada.

The probe discovers Marc Ibarra, a young inventor, who holds the key to a daring gambit that could save a fraction of Earth’s population. Humanity’s only chance lies with Ibarra’s ability to keep a terrible secret and engineer the planet down the narrow path to survival.

Earth will need a fleet. One with a hidden purpose. One strong enough to fight a battle against annihilation.

The Ember War is the first installment in an epic military sci-fi series. If you like A Hymn Before Battle by John Ringo and The Last Starship by Vaughn Heppner, then you’ll love this explosive adventure with constant thrills and high stakes from cover to cover.

I’ve had a run of “first installments in epic series” lately, I need to stop doing this, because they’re all starting to run together, I had completely forgotten what The Ember War was about just a day after I finished it.  Had to go back and read some of it again to refresh myself, then promptly follow the author on Amazon, cause this was a damn good ‘first installment’.  Fast paced with a touch of familiarity from various other science fiction tropes and now I’m a big fan.  It’s like he mixed Contact, Mass Effect, Halo, and threw in a dash of The Lost Fleet for good measure.  The only thing that I’m disappointed in is that this book came out less than a month ago, so it’s going to be a while before we see another entry in the series.
