    Seriously, I don't know how I made it through the first one. Actually, no, I'll take that back. 'Heirs of Earth' was actually pretty entertaining. I don't know how anyone would could call this series "science fiction" when there's literally zero science in the fiction. This series in particular (like most of Arenson's books) are purely fantasy-space opera at best. I liked the characters in 'Heir of Earth' they were diverse and dissimilar. I liked their interacts and their different POVs and their Seriously, I don't know how I made it through the first one. Actually, no, I'll take that back.

This series in particular (like most of Arenson's books) are purely fantasy-space opera at best. I liked the characters in 'Heir of Earth' they were diverse and dissimilar. I liked their interacts and their different POVs and their take on the plot and world. But in book two, all those moments of character interactions are tossed out and replaced by cringe-worthy dialogue, horrific space science and just ridiculous over the top action that just bored me. I believe this series would have benefited tenfold if it just focused on the characters and their plight against the scorpion aliens out to kill them. But this story has sooooo much action that I just skimmed those parts to get to the actual story hidden behind the fluffy fiery explosions and death. Once I did, I started to see that there was barely a driving narrative to this story besides constant action being shoved in your face. I like action scenes, but this series is loaded with action. I'd say at least 90% of the story is blood, gore, explosions. The last 10% is actual story, but then the story itself is just repeated facts we know already. It's like the only thing that talking starship could ever talk about is ants. So much so I began to developed a phobia of ants. Two ** (means it’s okay, but needs work a lot of work).

    I enjoyed the first book in this series more. But even the first could have been better. Even though the story is set thousands of years in the future, and in far away galaxies, many references are situations more like present day Earth. Almost all of the alien species resemble various Earth wildlife. It's like the author was too lazy to create aliens, and just used Earth animals. There is a chapter that strongly resemble the WWII holocaust. I may or may not read book 3 in the series. I enjoyed the first book in this series more. But even the first could have been better.

    The long journey to the lost homeworld of humans is underway. What will they find at journey's end? It's been two thousand years since Addison Elizabeth Linden-Emery ate her last hotdog, since Marco Emery wrote his last book, since Einav Ben-Ari, the Golden Lioness, had led the forces that saved the Earth. Two thousand years since the Earth was lost and humans had been forced to scrounge for survival with nowhere to call home, reviled and scorned by alien races, exterminated as pests by most spec The long journey to the lost homeworld of humans is underway. What will they find at journey's end? It's been two thousand years since Addison Elizabeth Linden-Emery ate her last hotdog, since Marco Emery wrote his last book, since Einav Ben-Ari, the Golden Lioness, had led the forces that saved the Earth. Two thousand years since the Earth was lost and humans had been forced to scrounge for survival with nowhere to call home, reviled and scorned by alien races, exterminated as pests by most species. 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. The storyline follows the Inheritors and their struggle against the Scorpions, while searching for the magical Godsblade - a weapon that could win the war. Part of the Heirs of Earth fleet has broken off to follow a map that could lead them to Earth. But if they can find it, what will they find - a garden of Eden, a barren and radioactive wasteland, or already settled by another species? 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)! The Children of Earthrise series is continuing to intrigue me with a wonderful blend of sci-fi and fantasy, a space opera with magical weapons, a mystical quest for the origin of Man and military sci-fi thriller. Whatever you want to call it, you're going to love A Memory of Earth!

    What a cliffhanger! This book continues the saga of the Heirs of Earth, and... well, I don't want to give too much away, but as with the first one it's an allegory. And it's very, very good. If I had one thing to quibble about, it's that the book ends with TWO cliffhangers. What happens to Rowan?! What happens to Ayumi?! You're leaving me hanging, Daniel! :) Can't recommend it enough: I like these two books more than the entire Earthrise series... and I really dig that series. Come on man, gimme b What a cliffhanger!

    Lions,Tigers, and Bears oh my! Well I told you I was going to burn through this series of it stays on course to be as good as the other ones. Just purchased the third book and I'm going to hide myself away to read. Some books grab you emotionally and make you want to fight in space against aliens and other things that threaten our hero's and heroines . Daniel Arenson you never fail to keep me on the edge of my seat so keep up the good work. Lions,Tigers, and Bears oh my!

    Excellent a must read, book 2 as good as book 1 I will have to give readers a piece of advice. This series like a bag of potato chips, you cannot just eat one chip, be prepared to read the series and stay up late as so far the two books I finished kept my attention I will now start book three. I hope you enjoy book 1 and 2 as much as I have.

    Great story that keeps your attention until the last page. Enjoying the continuing saga of the children of Earthrise. We are left with a cliffhanger making us over-anxious for the final book. Great story, superior telling and lovable characters. What more can we ask for?
