Summary

It's the year 2465, 200 years since the stars were opened to humanity by the invention of the shift drive. So began the First Interstellar Expansion Era, catapulting humanity into a deadly race for the limited resources of navigable space.
Now tensions between the human nations are threatening to boil over into open hostility. Into this maelstrom steps the exiled Commander James Somerville of the Royal Space Navy. Banished from London to the survey ship HMS Drake he is about to make a discovery that may change his fortunes and throw Britain into a deadly war with its closest rival.

The Void War

Thoroughly enjoyed the book. I thought the narrator was good too, but really should have been British.

Disappointing

This had the makings of a good book. However, almost all of the characters were English or Chinese and whoever thought an american voice could carry the storyline off really did not think this out.

The book was terribly let down, in my opinion, by the narration.

I like to do some of my listening when I go to bed in the evening. However, I fell asleep and missed the ending. I was so disappointed, I couldn't bring myself to go back and replay it.

Looking forwatd to the next book in the hopefully long series.

The universe that The Void War is based in is very fleshed out and interesting. Its a little bit of a slow start with the amount of names there are but you start to be able to pick out who is important before it becomes so crazy. You empathize with James, throughout the story understanding why he does what and what he believes it will accomplish. The references and little trickles of info you get about the other parts of the explored human universe is fascinating and make you just want more. The author even has a map of explored space up on his Facebook so you can visualize where everything is happening. All in all I would recommend this book to any dedicated sci-fi fan.

Great sci-fi space action audiobook

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I am a fan of mostly anything that involves action in space (movies, books...) and this audiobook was a pleasant surprise that exceeded my expectations. It is a fast-paced space opera with a perfectly developed story and believable characters that I liked. I also loved the way the battles were described and how the author imagined space exploration would be. If I could, I would listened it in just one sitting, now I can't wait for the next book in the series!
