Publisher's Summary

Mankind's outer colonies are disappearing. Without warning. Without a trace. Fleet command chalks the attacks up to pirates, but Captain Dryker of the UFC Johnston isn't buying it.

Defying command, he leads his misfit crew into hostile territory in search of answers. They encounter the mythical Void Wraith, an unstoppable legend whispered by the first race. After 26,000 years, the Void Wraith have returned to begin the next Eradication. Their technology is superior, their motives unclear.

Humanity cannot stop them. Not without help. Captain Dryker's only hope is to forge an alliance with mankind's greatest enemy, the savage Tigris.

One maverick captain, an unlikely crew, and an aging vessel are all that stand between humanity and the Eradication.

"It's like Battlestar Galactica and Mass Effect had a baby, and that baby was raised by StarCraft. I read this book in one sitting and immediately looked for the next." (The author's totally biased friend)

Contains the Complete Trilogy:

  • Destroyer
  • Void Wraith

Great SciFi!

Who was your favorite character and why?

That's a difficult choice as there are so many great characters. Pvt Edwards definitely stands out as a favorite. His determination mixed with his comedic comments make him unforgettable.

What about Ryan Kennard Burke’s performance did you like?

Ryan Kennard Burke does an amazing job voicing so many different characters. I am always impressed with his narrations and his ability to smoothly transition into each character as he narrates.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. Listening to this book certainly helps my work day go by faster.

Any additional comments?

Chris Fox is an impressive author. I have listened to the Deathless series and now the Void Wraith series. I am looking forward to reading more of his books. I would highly recommend his books to anyone who.

An Entertaining and Original Sci-Fi Adventure

The Void Wraith Trilogy was an entertaining and original Sci-Fi adventure with epic space battles, and a good bit of humor which made this an all-around great listen. The author did a great job creating an original story with unforgettable characters. And even though there is a lot of humorous parts, (especially the tongue-in-cheek recaps after every book) there was a lot of depth to the story, creating a truly enjoyable listen. The narrator does a fantastic job with this story. He really seems to encapsulate the characters personality with their voices, and I just don’t think this story would be the same if I had read it instead of listening. Overall, this was definitely a great listen and the follow up trilogy, the Ganog wars is great as well.

The author gifted me a copy of this book with no expectation of me posting a review. This review is my unbiased opinion.

Good narration, ok story.

I enjoyed the trilogy. It is full of cliches but a fun listen. Narration is above average.

Excellent Dog-Walking Audiobook.

If you are a teenager who loves space opera stop reading this review NOW.

Still here, youngsters? Well you really should stop reading this. The trilogy is perfect.

So, older readers, now that we are alone...

This trilogy is fun to read and the narrator does a good job... mostly... there are a few fluffs and stumbles and a couple of wrong-name problems but overall the narrator does fine.

The characters are likable, interesting, and well drawn if entirely two dimensional. The writing is spritely and engaging and the plot makes sense.

But... The author likes to throw in oddball notions every couple of chapters. Some of them work out OK -- The "Helios Gate" idea, for instance, is odd but he makes it work for him -- but other oddball notions are simply too gooney to pull off. These off-puttingly silly notions accumulate during the three books and by the time we get to the end of the third book it is hard not to step out of the story for an occasional Mystery Science 3000 -style guffaw.

Aliens are not very helpful

Chris Fox's Void Wraith Trilogy offers a galaxy with stereotypical aliens each with their own annoying peccadilloes and one big menace that everyone refuses to recognize or even acknowledge. While the plot is well crafted and the story unfolds in an engaging way, the overall simplicity is more in line with children's Saturday morning TV than a sophisticated, complex, and nuanced novel. Basically, a long forgotten alien menace that returns infrequently with the galactic rotation has come around again. There is an infiltration of all the local sentient species, including humans with the intention of both fomenting interspecies war and at the same time "harvesting" biological entities for unknown purposes. Only a few humans are able to figure this out and with the aid of a select group of aliens, must battle their own forces as well the overwhelming alien menace.

The sci-fi elements are many, but largely limited to aliens; FTL drives are extant along with high energy plasma weapons, but without explanation. Cyborg technology is available. There is also an alien lifeform that can "takeover" a person, but only "sorta-of." The aliens are overly anthropomorphized with a "feline" like species and a bunch of aloof eggheads. The feline species is so hyper-aggressive and obsessed with honor that it's hard to envision how they ever managed to get off-world in the first place, since anyone appears to be able to challenge for leadership by death-match. In addition, apparently anyone annoyed with an order can simply break the neck of the order giver and take over. The eggheads are presented as being technologically superior to everyone, but their disdain for the "lesser races" simply becomes tiresome as they clearly demonstrate total incompetence to even take care of themselves.

Other deficiencies concern too many plot conveniences that create inconsistencies, such as a quantum communications network that allows for instantaneous communications which only the good guys seems to use (and no one hacks it either), while the eggheads are clueless that one of their libraries (which are sacred, but at the same time placed in the middle of nowhere) was completely destroyed. While the alien greens stuff that can take over someone is available, in one case, murder is committed instead, creating suspicions. Loyalties shift quickly and individuals ready to kill to take command, readily acquiesce to subservient roles, while one species hands total war control over to another race. There is also the superweapon that has been hiding since the last go around, but it was never clear what they were waiting for or why they were kept secret at all. Finally, the alien uber-menace is never adequately described in terms of intent or motivation. Lastly, there is almost no attempt to describe anything about the various civilizations. This universe appears to be largely populated by military units with almost no connection to the worlds they claim allegiance.

The narration is reasonable, although alien voices are rendered without much discrimination among the various characters. Gender distinction is absent, especially for the aliens which can make speaker identification difficult. Finally, the uber-alien menace is portrayed in a whispered old man death bed rendition that contrasted negatively with the all powerful evil,

very enjoyable listen

What made the experience of listening to The Complete Void Wraith Trilogy the most enjoyable?

the whole series is fantastic, from the characters & attention

What other book might you compare The Complete Void Wraith Trilogy to, and why?

has to be the Ganog Wars, same author & narrator & is infact the next story leading on from the void wraith story this in turn will lead on to what I assume will be a final trilogy against the nameless ones.

Any additional comments?

Chris Fox's style of story telling & Burkes narration is a winning duo for me, the last 14 books I have listened to have been Fox & Burke combinations between the deathless, project solaris, void wraith & Ganog Wars series each book i have enjoyed & has left me wanting to dive right into the next one.
I love the "previously on" section at the start of the books where the previous book is recapped in a funny tv style & have found myself suddenly tittering with laughter to the surprise of people standing next to me at checkouts or while walking the dogs.
if you haven't already done so you should check his other books.
