But things went downhill when the author decided to milk this idea way, way beyond its shelf life. At least 4 of the middle books could be condensed into one good novel.
Now that we're up to the eleventh book, with no end in s ...more
Best series going right now
this is one of the very few series I eagerly anticipate this next episode. this is one very good series if you have not read it I suggest you start with episode one and by the time you get to 11.you will definitely be wondering where the next one is
In this book we get to follow the crew of the Aurora, their friends and what is left of Earth’s government in their struggle to hold on to what they have liberated. At the same tim ...more
Another exciting episode in the life and times of the Star Ship, Aurora! Another highly exciting and improbably story. This was fun although a little tiring. I can't put these books down when I'm in the middle of a battle which seems to be all the time for the Aurora and now the Celestia. I find myself reading very late into the night!
While the whole premise of the story is highly questionable, the crews of both ships have learned things the hard way, under fire! I d ...more
After the last two volumes seemed to tread water and lay the groundwork for future installments, this installment picked up the pace significantly with action / battle scenes and less of the inner reflection by the main characters we saw previously. Similar to the other novels, the author does a great job describing the scenes, events, etc ...more
Brown uses this book to examine the hard choices war forces the t leaders to make. There are no simple solutions given in this book. Brown asks the reader to explore the possi...more
Last review (10) I mistakenly thought I was through the series. Not so! Now the war begins. To appreciate a battle you must have a worthy opponent. The Jung are a worthy opponent. Can people unite enough to work together to defeat them even for their own survival?
This book is full of excitement, agony, action, missile, and resignation.
This book was a true space opera. The battle scenes are intense and scary and bite your nails suspenseful. The characters by this book are well developed and I love them. I don't know if the earth will survive, but I know this group will never given up trying. Woohoo!
1. Why can't the plasma weapons take out the missiles and rail gun rounds?
2. How did the rescue ships get reconditioned so fast?
3. How many nuclear attacks can the earth take?
I resent writing this review because it's keeping me from reading the next book
This review is on Born Of The Ashes from The Frontiers Saga Episode 11 by Ryk Brown. It is part of a continuing series of ebooks that have been very entertaining from the beginning. Each new release seems to be as good or better than the last.
Episode 11 begins with a security force of Ghatazhak soldiers allied with Captain Nathan Scott trying to quell an attack on a Sydney recruitment center on Earth by Jung sympathizers. They must use deadly force to defeat the Jun ...more
I have never posted a review before today after reading lots of amazing books throughout the past 2 years but I felt obligated to share my love for this series.
A little bit about me to frame my review: I have always wanted to be a reader growing up as my mom and brother constantly read but I just could never get to the same level they were at. At age 27 or 2 years ago I bought a kindle and started buying books that I thought I would be interested in. My criteria started at pricing be ...more
The pacing in this story is quick, almost too quick, but balance is largely preserved. The action is virtually non-stop through the second ...more
There is no consistent explanation for the armor of any navy's warships or the effectiveness of their weapons. The descriptions of the various ship structures aren't clear. Most writers make a stab at it, some better and some worse. This writer has not tried to explain their design features at all, except for mentioning cargo holds (apparently the same size on every ship ever built in this universe), some ships are strongly armored and some aren't (who knows why and yet every warsh ...more
This book sees the crew trying to prepare themselves for the impossible task of defending the Earth against a massive Jung fleet. With the Aurora and un-finished Celestia, what hope do they have against not only Cruisers and Frigates, but Battleships and a mighty Battle Platform?
Again Ryk Brown writes an incredible story, capturing the feelings of his crew, and the now numerous tertiary character ...more
It was another good story in this ongoing saga of the Aurora and Celestia war ships. Of all the books so far I think this one was the slowest moving at least through three fourths of the book then it excelled into a battle to save the Earth. I don't know if it's because the battles are the same or what, but I found myself skipping through scenarios which is not good, probably. The writing is still good and I still love the characters but this book seemed to have less interpersonal friendshi ...more
