One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. Earth Afire by Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston is the story of the First Formic War.
Victor Delgado beat the alien ship to Earth, but just barely. Not soon enough to convince skeptical governments that there was a threat. They didn't believe that until space stations and ships and colonies went up in sudden flame.
And when that happened, only Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police could move fast enough to meet the threat.
Great story, enjoyed the narration
Excellent, couldn't stop listening.
I have Enders Game, Ender in Exile, Speaker for the Dead, and this one. By far, the worst book. Probably 6 different story lines and not one got resolved. Does not follow how Mazer destroyed the ship in Enders Game. Then it ends suddenly without any explanation.
If all of Orson Scott Cards endings are this unsatisfying, I don’t expect to buy any more of his books. Definitely unsatisfactory.
