One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. This is the story of the First Formic War. Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn't believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame. And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.… (mais)

I started reading this prequel to the Ender's Game series out of curiosity. But, so far, the series isn't nearly as compelling or well-written as the Ender books and this is by far the less interesting of the first two installments. If this book had been the first in the series, rather than the second, there's no way I would have continued with the series after the first book. And this installment makes me wonder if it's worth bothering with the third (and last) book in the series. It's certainly not a series I'll ever have any interest in re-reading. ( )

The story of the First Formic War.

This is review of the series as a whole. I held off on reading this series because it was co-authored. But when I started listening to it, Card's voice shines through immediately. Fans of the Ender's Shadow series will enjoy this too. My favorite character in this series is Lem Jukes, son of the world's richest man. He might be a rich, entitled scumbag who act atrociously, there more depth to his character. The second two books also go into the background of Mazer Rackham, Ender's Mentor/Torturer from the first book which is interesting. ( )

I chose a three star rating for this book because, honestly, I can't decide if I enjoyed it or not. On the pro-side: the plot is interesting enough and there are just enough main characters that you don't get sick of them but not so many that you need a glossary to keep track of who's who. The technology is just advanced enough that you believe this is happening in the future, but not so advanced that it feels out of reach. On the con side: The character of Bingwen makes absolutely no sense. In no universe should this child be permitted to follow a soldier into battle. On top of that, he lectures Mazer in dialogue that feels completely unrealistic for even a hyper-precocious young child. Also, the frequent emphasis on traditional gender roles among the mining/scavenging characters feels out of place to me. The book's characters harp on how people living in deep space can't just replace things and everyone has to pitch in to ensure survival...but as soon as there's trouble the women are herded onto another ship with all of the children and captain's are expressing shock when another ship turns out to be led by a woman. It just doesn't seem to make sense in their all for one ethos to have certain activities so rigidly separated by gender.

So, I will probably read the third book to see how things end, but I'm definitely hoping the dialogue gets better if nothing else. ( )

Earth Afire :First Formic War Series Book 2. This is second book in the series that tells the story of the initial invasion of Earth by ant like creatures called the Formic's. I have not read Ender’s Game in over 30 years and not kept up with the follow on novels. I am coming at this as essentially a newbie. I had a great deal of fun reading this book. Its pacing kept me interested. I cared for the characters. I particularly enjoyed the fact that this was not an American centered story. The characters come from all over the Earth and space. The story takes place in space and in China. It follows the lives of the main families in Earth Unaware, the first book in the series. The events that happen to them have a realistic feel. Its depiction of what a space based culture will be was believable. It does a good job of showing the horrors of war while not being graphic. This story like a second act in a 3 act play does not stand well on its own. It literally ends in the middle of a major plot development. You will have to the third book in the trilogy to get the whole story. Fortunately the last book in the series Earth Awakens is available. ( )
