Descendants of the famous families, David Emery and Emet Ben-Ari had acquired a small fleet of spacecraft, mostly freighters, which they armed. They established the 'Heirs of Earth' to protect humans across the Milky Way galaxy. Their oath 'Wherever a human is in danger the Heirs of Earth will be there' became their battle cry as their small fleet crossed space seeking humans in trouble and rescuing them. They sought to save humanity while searching for their homeworld, Earth, lost for hundreds of years. Their only memories of their home came from the Earthstone, a crystal data store of all Earth's history and culture, literature and art. A difference in their goals and methods drove a rift between the founders, Ben-Ari and Emery, and eventually split them apart. David and Sarai Emery, with their two young daughters, Jade and Rowan, left the Heirs to make their own way, taking the Earthstone with them. They had not been seen or heard from for nearly 15 years.
Emet Ben-Ari and his daughter, Leona, held the Inheritors together, rescuing humans wherever they could with the help of fellow Inheritors. Emet's son Bay had left the Heirs of Earth after the death of his girlfriend, killed by Scorpions. He blamed his father for her death and spent his time drinking, gambling and wasting his life.
Rowan Emery found herself abandoned and hiding in the airducts of space station "Paradise Lost", kept company by a tiny dragonfly shaped AI and the Earthstone she wore on a chain around her neck. She didn't remember much from before Paradise Lost, only something about a crystal cave and her sister Jade.
These characters form the basis for the Children of Earthrise series, a remarkable new series by Daniel Arensen. The characters are vibrant and colorful, brought to life by this master storyteller. The action is bloody and dark, raising chills with heart-pounding ship-to-ship battles, hand-to-claw skirmishes, blasters vs. bullets combat, some of the most intense action readable (or hearable)! I found it impossible to put the book down.
You don't have to read the Earthrise series first, but why not? The references to that story and characters are found throughout Heirs of Earth, but aren't really spoilers. So you don't NEED to read Earthrise, but you WILL enjoy it!
Spoiler Warning -
If you haven't read the first two books of this series - The Heirs of Earth and A Memory of Earth - then stop reading here, there ARE SPOILERS ahead!
SPOILER WARNING !!
In An Echo of Earth, book 3 of Children of Earthrise Series, the Heirarchy - the scorpions Skra Shen and their allies - have conquered system after system, killing every human they found. Their goal was to conquer the galaxy and exterminate humanity.
Arrayed against the Scorpions were the forces of the Concord - the Aelonians, the last unconquered races of the Milky Way and the Inheritor fleet. Emet Ben-Ari and his Heirs of Earth had gathered a fleet of a thousand ships containing all the humans they could rescue. The Concord's fleet numbered in the hundreds of thousands, but they faced millions of Skra Shen strikers and battleships. They knew their only hope was the fabled God's Blade, not seen for years, since Rowan and her sister Jade had played with it in a crystal cave they were hiding in on a world far away. On a mission to find the God's Blade, Rowan and
Sorry, that's all you get. I'm not going to give away the most exciting and intense action in the series so far, maybe
Nope! You don't get no more!
Especially in the last half - I was chuckling at the dialogue one minute and gasping for air, trying to help
no! The brilliant storyline had me laughing hysterically and sobbing, tears rolling when
uh uhh! On a tip to the location of Earth, Leona
okay. That's enough!
In case you haven't guessed by now, I really loved this book, and I'm super confident that you will too! Now I just have to chew my wife's fingernails off (I don't have any left now!) until The War For Earth, Children of Earthrise book 4, is be released. I preordered it already.
I’d also like to point out that I may have suggested a snake type villain back when we were still reading about centipedes. Please keep up the good work Daniel. You keep writing them, and I’ll keep reading them.
I was there with there pain and joy. Looking forward for the book
