Reviewed on http://bookaddict.live,
I have to say this a long audiobook, and at first you must concentrate to make sure you don’t get names and ships in a muddle. The human world as we know is now Known as The Confederation as we have planets in many systems.
We also have the Spartan Empire who left earth 700 years before to escape a dictatorship called the Harran Empire, as they wanted to have religious freedoms. All this time they have been preparing for a war with the Terran Empire.

So what happens when two groups of humanity that have been separated by so many years and so much distance that they're unaware of each other's existence come into contact with one another? What if one group thought their territory was being invaded by aliens? How would the other group react? If you're not sure (or maybe if you just want to read a good story) ask James L. Young. I'm sure he'll smile and sell you a copy of Aries' Red Sky. He promotes his stuff at cons all the time so I've got to ...more

This tale has a lot to offer: space battles, heroes on both sides of the conflict, multiple cultures represented, gender equality in the military, and a deep misunderstanding that could decimate humanity. However, I was often lost. There are so many characters and the two sides of the conflict are comparable in many ways, making it hard to keep them straight. I had a real hard time keeping track of who was on which side.

The Spartans are a long lost exiled colony of humans that hold a grudge like

This is a war 700 years in the making. The Republic of Sparta split from the Hassan Empire in order to govern themselves and live by their own creeds and values. The Hassan Empire was corrupt and annihilated everyone who went against them. But they had been rebelled against and were long gone, replaced by the Confederation of Man. The Republic did not care. Two years ago they found a Confederation vessel floating through their space. They knew war was coming and decided to take the initiative. T ...more

The worldbuilding in this book was amazing. Weapons, military hierarchy and dynamics of character relationships were impressive. Had some trouble grasping the overall concept, or staying with the storyline though. There was so much information I think better use of the narrative could've been used to ground, or acclimate the reader into the book. Besides that, very creative and impressive.

So good

Love this series. The writing is so good I just wish there was more in this series. At times I love the Spartans and other times I want their worlds nuked to ashes. That's good writing.

History repeated

All that we learn we must relearn to prevent a possible wrong future. Never forget is a important saying.
The author here used history to make you think about what a future could be. You get entertainment and an education.
