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.
At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Q&A with Richard Fox
What's in store for the crew of the Breitenfeld?
The war with the Xaros is far from over. In this story we'll meet new enemies, new allies and learn that Marc Ibarra isn't done manipulating the human race. There's plenty of action, intrigue, and sci-fi adventure, but on a much larger scale as the war grows to include the Alliance that saved humanity from the Xaros invasion.
If this was a movie, what would it be rated?
Still PG-13 for and wartime violence some language.
When can we expect the next adventure?
Book 3 (tentative title BLOOD OF HEROES) will be out on December 11th, 2015.
The alien ships of former allies rule Earth's skies, threatening to obliterate cities and turn the planet into a barren wasteland if humanity refuses their demands. With their backs to the wall, the scattered crew of the Breitenfeld must work together to foil the enemy's plan before time runs out. The path to freedom leads through THE CRUCIBLE.
The Xaros Masters destroyed Bastion, the Alliance against the alien invaders has failed. Earth stands against the full force of the enemy's unending drone fleets.
With their backs against the wall, Captain Valdar and the Breitenfeld must lead a last ditch mission to end the war against the Xaros.
Can humanity pay the price for ultimate victory?
Q&A with Richard Fox:
Is this the end of the Ember War books?
The war against the Xaros ends with this story. There's closure, I promise. There will be more from the characters you know and love in future novels.
So you're not going to hit us with book 10?
Nope. Future stories (or those set before the events of The Ember War) will be stand alone.
