EARTH AFIRE The First Formic War, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Stefan Rudnicki, Stephen Hoye, Arthur Morey, Vikas Adam, Gabrielle de Cuir, Roxanne Hernandez, Emily Rankin

Science Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

In this second book of the Formic Wars trilogy (taking place 100 years before the time of ENDER’S GAME) a warlike, technically advanced alien race has been sighted in the solar system, headed straight for Earth. The gifted Stefan Rudnicki leads a team of talented narrators who do an excellent job of keeping vivid and focused the two-dozen or so characters and multiple locations (a mining ship in the outer Kuiper asteroid belt, the moon, and South China). Orson Scott Card remains a master storyteller, and each narrator is right there with him as he mixes hard science and psychological insights—right up to the cliff-hanger ending. Can’t wait for the final installment, EARTH AWAKENS—due out in 2014. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2013]
