Luke, you need to mix up voices more...

Love the action and split from the Ember War galaxy. BUT LUke, Sir, I thought the breach man, on both teams, (Garcia and unez? you performance of Space Marines, were brothers or cousins. LUKE, if you read these, you have a lot more voices.. Any of Iron Druid's voices would have made the story that little bit different. just mix it up some. It sometimes seemed the characters were only switched positions within the Unit. I started Fox's novels with this series. and I like the premise enough to go back and read/ listen to the whole thing. And I hope to see more of the pathfinders from this series in the ember war books prior to their trip on colony.. not just Hale's story. I hope you continue this new coalition more in future books.

Great finish

Fox and Hayes deliver the best installment in the Terra Nova Chronicles, part of the expanded Ember War universe. Hale’s War is the best of the four, by far. Luke Daniels is excellent, as always

Not quite over yet or is it?

I loved the ending of this part of the Terra Nova chronicles. The coming together of the cast and the final climactic scenes were all amazing written by Richard and Josh and brought to amazing life by Luke Daniels. The closed the story of the Brothers Hale in an awesome way but left it open for so many more adventures into the universe. I hope that this story and the characters crossover to the Terran Strike Marines and Terran Armor Corp series. So much life left in all of these stories and universe and yet so many more stories to tell. Great work team!

Rough Story

Buy in wasn't there. in terms of character development only two were really addressed with Ken Hale just riding a trumped up wave from previous books. Ken Hale was the least believable character as all others abandoned what little was established about them to bend into his desires. Desires which equated to the impulses of a drunk adolescent.

It is unclear if the characters are meant to be depicted a terrible leaders without any military training beside shooting or if the writer simply has a very skewed perception of what good is. Both Ken Hale and Chief Carson should have been summarily courtmartialed for multiple individual acts.

That being said, the support characters who often didn't even have names could just be called "redshirt" followed by a number. These seemingly oblivious support characters were oblivious to their own needs as they died in the hundreds to solve Ken Hales family troubles. Every time Ken Hale would go into a room numerous red shirts would sacrifice themselves usually so Ken could satisfy some misguided macho impulse or to save his kid.

Carson's biggest downfall, besides an apparent lack of any military training and acting like a boot camp recruiter, was in the diplomatic realm. She approached every political encounter with disdain and a huge sense of entitlement. screaming at other species representatives. Apparently the writer thinks that's an admirable trait.

Ken Hale does this too mostly in the end when speaking to the adjudicator. A character who is supposed to be all powerful yet comes into the story just to help Ken save his kid then take a load of juvenile whining and screaming from Ken. At one point I was wanting the adjudicator to wipe out the humans starting with Ken as he screamed at the person who just saved everyone from their own stupidity ( the attack plan... well there wasn't one) because his kid is injured and the adjudicator isn't sure it can help. What about the hundreds of dead and dying who gave everything so you could rescue your kid?

Ken should have been shot when he returned to the colony.

Horrible Ending

I like the story for the most part. But after a person commits genocide, there needs to be repercussions!
