Void Wraith by Chris Fox | Book Review

This book reads like a breeze and yet it's chalked full of awesome stuff! Political intrigue, amazing action scenes, really cool alien races, space battles, a super creepy mysterious antagonist, and so much more. I really enjoyed getting to spend more time with the characters from the first couple books and meeting new ones. Nolan gains new skills in this book and it was awesome getting to see him grow  and use them. Dryker proves a formidable military leader in this book and my respect for him grew a lot from the last book. Annie a human from the prequel novel comes back to help in a big way in this story and I really enjoyed getting to know her more. She's a kick in the pants. Fizgig the amazing Tigris was as awesome as ever and I really enjoyed seeing her a lot in this novel. There were tons of other awesome characters too, like a bionic soldier. He was awesome in the firefight scenes. 

This book had amazing mission style action scenes where the characters had to go into battle to recover items. These scenes were intense and awesome, but they were also used well to build up the characters. I really enjoyed getting to see the character Annie again in this book, especially in combat situations. Her dialog and actions cracked me up and gave me respect for her. I wouldn't want to be on the other end of her weapon.

All of the characters in this book were great. From the amazing Tigris cat aliens, to well rendered tough characters like the military veteran Annie. Chris Fox really pulled it off on this novel.

There was an awesome claw to claw fight scene between two of the Tigris main characters. I loved getting to see more into the culture of this cat race of aliens. It was also cool seeing more of the Primo alien race. As the story unfolds you get to see humans, Tigris, and Primo all interacting in ways that go against how they've related to each other throughout all of history up to this point—and that was really cool.

The last act of the story was done really well. The tension just kept building. The characters kept finding themselves in situations where it seemed like there was no way for them to succeed in the battle let alone the war. The climax of the story was fantastic. An amazing fight that took a lot of brawn and brains. I'm not going to spoil it by saying everyone made it out alive or who won, but man was it an amazingly fun scene to read! Chris Fox is a talented author, and the stuff he came up with also shows just how creative he is. This story rocked.

In conclusion, this was a very satisfying novel that made me laugh a lot. It had tons of amazing action and character interaction that made for one heck of a read. I flew through this book. I'm sad I finished it because I wanted it to keep going. The ending was a great conclusion to the story that built up and it sets up the third book nicely. I'm hungry to read it. Luckily I know how productive the author has been—writing the first 2.5 books in the series—so I know we won't have that long to wait. I can't wait for the next one! The stakes are high! It should prove to be another amazing ride!
