Rear Admiral Terrence Murphy is a Heart Worlder. His family is part of the Five Hundred. His wife is the daughter of one of the Five Hundred’s wealthiest, most powerful industrialists. His sons and his daughter can easily avoid military service, and political power is his for the taking. There is no end to how high he can rise in the Republic’s power structure.
All he has to do is successfully complete a risk-free military “governorship” in the backwater Fringe System of New Dublin without rocking the boat. But the people sending him to New Dublin have miscalculated, because Terrence Murphy is a man who believes in honor. Who believes in duty—in common decency and responsibility. Who believes there are dark and dangerous secrets behind the façade of what “everyone knows.”
Terrence Murphy intends to meet those responsibilities, to unearth those secrets, and he doesn’t much care what the Five Hundred want. He intends to put a stop to the killing.
Terrence Murphy is coming for whoever has orchestrated fifty-six years of bloodshed and slaughter, and Hell itself is coming with him.

Q&A with Richard Fox:
How would you describe The Ember War?
Battlestar Galactica meets Mass Effect. It is a story of first contact with galactic empires, some with our best interests at heart, others that see us as an infestation to be wiped out. Epic space battles, heroes and villains you'll never forget and just the right amount of humor to make you bust out laughing while you're reading in public.
Is the Ember War Saga complete?
The nine book series concludes with The Xaros Reckoning, and that end is both satisfying and uplifting. The Ember War universe continues with Terra Nova, the Dragon Award winning Iron Dragoons and the thrill packed Dotari Salvation.
Where’d you get the idea for The Ember War?
The stars are silent. We’ve had our ear to the sky for decades but we haven’t had a confirmed peep from any alien civilizations. There are three reasonable explanations: no one else is out there, we don’t have the right tools to listen, or something is silencing extraterrestrial civilizations as they start broadcasting.
If the third explanation is the right one, how could humanity save itself from that threat, and what if other aliens could help us?
What makes this unique?
I have a strong military background and that carries into my writing. I spent ten years on active duty in the US Army, and served two combat deployments to Iraq. I try and bring all the fear, doubt and pulse pounding adrenaline from war into my novels, and I hope it shines through for the readers.
If this was a movie, what would it be rated?
PG-13 for some language and intense action.
Only a sliver of mankind survived the Xaros invasion. With Earth's defenses in ashes, nothing can stop the aliens' inevitable return.

Unfortunately, humans aren't the only power that received the ancient message...

Still PG-13 for and wartime violence some language.
