Publisher's Summary

The best-selling, epic space adventure, Freedom's Fire: the complete series of six audiobooks, in one box set.

It was never a question of if the aliens would come, it was only ever when. 

The first interstellar war, a generation ago, left humanity enslaved. Now, humans fight in the armies of their masters to save themselves from annihilation. 

At least, that's what the propaganda insists is true. What the layers of lies keep hidden is how badly the new war is going for the people of earth.

Now, it's Dylan Kane's turn to blast into the heavens and join the battle, but what his masters don't know is that, by putting a weapon in his hands, they're giving him the key to unlocking his hopes of freedom.

When the rail-gun slugs are tearing through his ship and the vacuum is sucking the life out of his wounded friends, will Dylan's years of repressed rage turn into enough bravery to make his dream come true?

The Freedom's Fire series in this special edition includes:

  • Audiobook one: Freedom's Fire
  • Audiobook two: Freedom's Fury
  • Audiobook three: Freedom's Fray
  • Audiobook four: Freedom's Fist
  • Audiobook five: Freedom's Fall
  • Audiobook six: Freedom's Fate

A number one Amazon.com best seller in space marine science fiction.

Not Recommend.

The author has written a interesting world, unfortunately the characters are all pricks.

I thought I'd give it time but I keep listening to it I enjoy it less and less. it's depressing, the characters hate each other and constantly squabble about stupid things. The main character is a prick, who keeps picking a fight with pretty much anyone he meets.

Fantastic series I never knew I needed.

One of the better sci fi series I've come across. I love the way the main characters' basic telepathy and mind reading somewhat blurs the line between narrator and story dialogue. Bryce is my man, absolutely love that guy.

This was better than the reviews let on that it was.

I listen to a lot of books and this was a nice concept. I really enjoyed the first person perspective. The story takes a little while to flesh out characters ,but we get lots of character development as time passes. A pleasure to listen to as the miles go by on my commute. Thanks for a pleasant listen :)

This is a great military space adventure.

Never wanted it to end! It's pretty much a man book, full of a$$ kicking band of space brothers. Smartly written with creative tactical planning. Very well read with gemreat character seperation so it's easy to follow. Loved it!

Best space opera since Battlestar Galactica

This tale hooked me and reeled me in without a fight.
Greg Tremblay is fantastic. Made me laugh, frown, gasp. His first person narrative is exceptional.
Mr. Tremblay's delivery is so believable that my tendency to correct an author's grammar was replaced with acceptance that this was the way the characters were talking and I only lamented their lack of schooling 😉

Worth a listen. But sadly 100% bipolar characters.

Its definitely worth your time but you will want to play it at 1.35x speed. The voice guy drags it out painfully. 1.35 will restore it to normal talking speed.

I went through the box set in the last 48hrs and have no regrets just frustrations with the voice, plot, action and characters.

EVERY Single main character in the book interacts with every other character like an absolute 100% aggressive, angry, confrontational, emotional wrecks that cannot talk without dropping constant shitty remarks at everyone back and forth at every possible moment but then they flip a switch and morph into Seal Team Six. Then they are espousing their unending love and trust and respect for each other only to cut right back to yelling and being asses to each other like some bipolar nightmare.

First Two books feel polished but then 3 through 6 feel rushed out and will leave you feeling it.

The author simply introduces magical new technology to move the plot forward or goes full magical and tosses in a boom at kills 15 ships or 100 ships in order to balance the books to get the plot to match up.

The main characters seem to be able to go head on face to face with enemies outnumbered by 50 to 1 in chaotic gunfights and are shooting through armor killing them with single shots like james bond or a couple shots will tear apart the armor like its made of paper. Amor in space, wouldnt it just get a tiny hole? If you shoot a car with bullets it just gets holes, its not going to send the doors flying away torn apart like paper, right? Especially something made and hardened as combat armor and space suit. Something that can fly at 30g and handle vacuum will just get a hole punched through from bullets... Physics?

Many times it feels like the main characters might as well be pro MMA fighters unleashed on a kindergarten playground in a fist fight against blind children. That's how almost every battle plays out againts the aliens except for when the author want to move the plot along by blowing up a ship or 100 friendly ships or killing off one of the handful of hollow character that seem created just so he has one to kill. Then its right back to the main character being the god of war and unstoppable killing 60000 aliens with no effort.

I see now at the end of the review I have more frustrations than I originally thought :(

Great Space Opera at a bargain

This is a great book series if you love space opera Scifi. I feel bad spending so little for the entire series. It's that good. The main character is relatable, flawed, and lucky. Other characters are similar in their own way. Really glad I bought this.

Great voices!!

I really enjoyed the story but was floored by Greg’s performance! More impressive then pulling a rabbit out of a hat was hearing one character mimic another character - Greg’s gifted!!
Additionally, it’s 6 books for 1 credit and there are no painful waits for the next book.

Boys Own fun

I bought this box set more for the length than anything else, but was pleasantly surprised.
Earth, subjugated by the Grey's has suffered 30 years of slavery and decline. Humans are a resource to be fought over and exploited but revolution is in the air. Can they defy the odds and win?
This series is not as thought prevoking as the Expance or Altered Carbon nor is it as funny as The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy or the Bobiverse. I did like it but didn't quite fall in love with the characters as they are not fleshed out enough for me.
Greg Tremblay was very good, able to switch between characters without difficulty and to give each a unique voice.
This series is worth a listen. The chapters are short, the story hangs together and if you like irony and self deprecation then this story will probably work for you.

Great Cheese!

If you like your cheese with an extra slice of cheese topped off with cheese spread then this book set is for you.
Great entertainment you don't have to think too hard about with Greg Tremlay bringing to life all the chunky characters.
Dillon Cane the all American average guy hero thrust into a war full of aliens, violence and sarcastic humour. Phil who reminds me of a cross between Peter Griffin and Rick Sanchez and Brice (Sgt. Apone of the Free army lol). Anyway, i've already said too much....A great listen if you want a few 'one liners' to giggle uncontrollably too ...... i'm not even gonna mention the identical twin sisters :) Hehehehehehe........Did I mention cheese?....Hehehehehe ....Great stuff :)

Great listening

This is a good SiFi srory to listen too, this presents great value too, for me this restored my faith in writers to take you into a total adventure right the way to the conclusion, leaving the way open to continue another adventure. The narrator was also good. Thank you .

Not for me

After listening to Slow Burn, I was definitely in the mood for another Bobby Adair book but this one is not for me. Yet another of what I term as “cowboys (and cowgirls) in space” genre. I stuck with it through to the end of the first book but couldn’t stomach any more. The whole premise just doesn’t make sense.

Superb books and the best value ever with the box set

I thoroughly enjoyed these books and Iv listened to a lot of SiFi audio. The characters are real and for me the story line made it very enjoyable as it did not jump all over the place with story arcs. The narration was very good and kept me interested. Well done to all involved . Finally I have never got such good value the box set is my Best Buy ever in audio books

Pleasantly surprised

I didn’t go into this with high expectations but this was an entertaining well written series with snappy dialogue and an engaging storyline. The story passed in the blink of an eye and in the end I was disappointed it finished. Worth listening to and the narration is excellent.

A great character driven story!

This series was fairly low on my "to listen to," list because it simply didn't grab me with its summery.

But now that I've finally gotten around to listening to it, I really should have had this closer to the top of my list!

The characters:
From the very beginning, I felt the essence of each character as I feel they were meant to be imagined. That was aided by the excellent narration, but each character goes through their own unique journey of changing, growing, and forming relationships.

The universe:
The world we find ourselves in holds a lot of cliche's, but not so many it's bad, just enough to make it fantastic, in the midst of good story/world building.
The Greys are an interesting take on the stereotype with some great and original evolutions, and I love how in one of the novels it bring up that the Greys had been visiting Earth for scouting for a long while before invading - Referencing all the great alien conspiracies.
The Troggs were an awesome foe! At first they feel one dimensional in a way that feels right, as they are the primary invading force. As the story evolves, so do they.
From faceless invader to something that you sympathise with.

The narration surely tops off this great series. Every character felt unique, every mood expressed emotively.

Struggling

I normally love this author, but am on 2nd book and they are still in the situation at the beginning of one. This book is CRAWLING along on a seriously slow pace. I often wonder where the author's mind is at, in order to write such a painfully slow book. Surely they get bored with it themselves and stop. I'll keep going, but my mind keeps drifting to other things because their is nothing to keep me here. Its like someone else has written it.
