One hundred years before Ender's Game, the aliens arrived on Earth with fire and death. This 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.
Fans of Ender's Game will thrill to Orson Scott Card and Aaron Johnston's Earth Afire.

Predictable, but enjoyable
February 1st, 2015
Although many parts of the story are predictable and sometimes familiar (War of the Worlds) this book is never the less an enjoyable piece of work. I find it challenging to engage with the maturity and skill level portrayed by young children in Card's novels, but if you can get beyond that, they are enjoyable books.
