Playing chicken with the devil

I confess to bias. I preordered the book and downloaded Battle of the Void at the stroke of midnight. Yes, the other books in the series are that good! Fox outdoes himself in Battle of the Void. The plot is fresh and maintains my interest in the series. Luke Daniels has improved his narration and has created new voices for more characters. Yes, I got irritated as he mixed accents in earlier stories The story line is fresh. He does a superb job of unpacking and developing the Xaros. Fox and Daniels kept me on the edge of my seat as mere mortals do battle with "Uberbeings". Fox explores and develops the characters of several of the Procedurally created humans and doughboys. I enjoyed getting to know more about Makarov.(forgive my spelling as I only listen to the Audible versions of books). The book ranks high on my short list of great SciFi.

Another well-written/well-told series continuation

This book has the fight to save humankind from the Xaros being waged on two fronts; one with the 8th fleet against the earth-bound Zaros drone armada fighting Zorro and the other with the Breitenfeld venturing into Mad Malal's lair with the quest of acquiring a potential key for ultimate victory.

As with the previous installments, there is a lot going on to keep the story interesting, along with the introduction of a few new species; one of them being Sergeant Torni. Yes, she exists on ... sort of ... and still, always a marine.
