Summary

Terra Nova, Book 1

Terra Nova. The promised world is humanity’s new home, safe from the threats of a dangerous galaxy, where veterans of a long war could live in peace. The promise was a lie.

Chief Katherine “Kit” Carson, of the elite Pathfinder Corps, joins the mission as a last-minute replacement, hoping to put a spotty past behind her and build a new life on a brave new world. The expedition arrives on Terra Nova, expecting to join the first wave of colonists, instead they find abandoned cities and are soon faced with a new, terrifying enemy humanity has never encountered before.

For the colony to survive, Carson must unravel the mystery of her new home and learn the fate of the first mission to settle the planet....

Bloodlines, Book 2

Terra Nova broke free of the Ultari tyrants, but the colony’s struggle to survive has just begun.

Governor Ken Hale and his expedition brought technology to the Canis Major galaxy that will change the balance of power forever, and the Ultari will stop at nothing to take it for themselves. The colony needs allies, and with no other options, Hale sends Chief Kit Carson on a first contact mission that will either shield their vulnerable world or invite its swift destruction.

Bit of a Mixture

Listening to this has been a mixture of both good and bad.

I found the hysterical voice of Nooness was, to say the least, really irritating.

Chief Katherine (Kit) Carson's voice did not sound female at all, far too masculine and I had to keep stopping to think for a moment who was who.

Governor Hale seems to be very volatile and not the type of person, I would believe, could be put in charge of a mission like this. His lack of control and outbursts are not what is expected of a Govenor.

However, the storyline I did like. That said, I doubt I will follow on with this series as the helium voice of Luke Daniels is a little too over the top for me.

Slow start

not having read the ember war series I was a bit of a loss to start with and nearly returned the book but after sticking with it, it soon picks up. I'm going to go back and read the previous books and would recommend anyone else do the same

Overall disappointing both books seem to stop mid flow

The story is reasonably well written but goes on in parts but both books just seem to stop at random times in the plot without completing their story. Probably saved me from going on and in. I’m used to a book having a start middle and end so if the authors want to finish up without a a conclusion I’m happy to not continue reading.

Ugh. Characters lack some originality.

Author really dropped the ball on thinking through the characters. I gave up and didn't finish.
Question: How do you make a strong female character?
Give her a tough name (like a famous cowboy) and an accent (faux Southern/Country dialect).
Kit Carson....ugh. Ok, for a spec ops group focused on handling first encounters with aliens, she SUCKS at her job. What did the course involve? 1960's Cowboy talking to Native American racist stereotype? Palm up "How" and all that.

Cpl. Standish makes a return. Erm...under a new name. But a carbon copy of the same character.
It's possible that Luke Daniels' performance and reuse of character voices greatly agitated me.

If this was re-skinned as Star Wars or some other universe, it could work. But it felt like there character's were poorly thought out/rehashed for a spin off to continue making money.

I’d recommend the ember war series and its continued books to anyone.
Luke Daniels brings this book to the next level

Another Hit!

This book takes some great characters from the Ember War series and takes them to an entirely new galaxy. Feels just enough like the Ember War books to keep it tied together with them but just different enough to make you fall in love with this entirely new world Richard and Josh have created. I can not wait for the next book in the series!

Book 4 is now available!

I enjoyed these first two books in the 4 book story, but I've now learned thru someone else' review (thank you) that book 3 ends in a cliffhanger, and the 4th and concluding book isn't available on Audible. Nothing infuriates me more than for Audible to sell us books that are a series, but not have available all the completed books in the series. As a result, I'm not going to even start book 3. It's too bad, though, because I enjoyed these books and the characters involved. They are fun books with an interesting premise. Of course, Luke Daniels is outstanding.

UPDATE: Audible has now released book 4 of the series, so I WILL go ahead with Book 3 and 4, since I enjoyed the first two books so much.

Just dumb

A colony ship leaves Earth for another galaxy because Earth is at war so they send the first colony ship unarmed. When they arrive they have no way to communicate with Earth or return home if bad shit happens. Bad shit happens. The next group of 40k colonists jump to the colony 15 years later and more bad shit happens. There are no marines or other real military aboard the ship except for retired or washed out ex-military crew. Even after nearly getting wiped out by interstellar war the new colony ships again have no weapons. They do have pathfindere, which are the equivalent of combat engineers but it is like they saw a 3 stooges short where the stooges joined the military and imprinted upon them. They piss themselves at every turn, crack jokes, are inept, incompetent and gossip like teenagers. Not even slightly believable.

Another great story in the Ember Wars Universe

Another great story in the Ember Wars Universe with familiar characters taking a supporting roll and the focus shifting to a new cast with familiar rolls. Good suspense and great description of the battles in both space and on the ground in the hand to hand nature.

Amazing!

I hope this turns into another series like Ember Wars- loving the story so far. Also, Luke Daniels really brings it to life- especially with the effects (accents, crying, whining, begging, interference, etc) it’s fantastic.
