Book Review The Last War

Title: The Last War
Author: Alex Davis
Genre: Science-Fiction
Born from the genius of the Animex, the aliens of the Noukari seek to gain a foothold on a savage planet. But the greatest danger to their existence lies within them – a powerful gift of telepathy.
As the tension grows between idolatry and admiration of their creators, and the Noukari come to understand the latent powers within their own minds, a species created for peace are about to succumb to brutal violence.
In a galaxy torn by conflict, will the first battle between the Noukari also be their last war?
“The Last War is a remarkable study of reason and faith, morality and practicality, pragmatism and idealism. With sharp, unfussy prose, Alex Davis draws the reader into an endearing nascent civilisation, and then takes it apart before our eyes. Unpredictable, challenging and rewarding.” Gav Thorpe, New York Times Bestselling author of Angels of Darkness Deliverance Lost.

Review: The Noukari's argue about whether their existence and evolution can be attributed to themselves, or if it can be attributed to their supposed creators, godlike creatures. With some believing in a higher force and others believing more in their own strength, the Noukari society is torn. The book focuses on morality and faith, and does so in a scifi setting that sounds believable and realistic at the same time. Although off to a slow start, the pacing picks up after a few chapters. Loved the characters, and the plot is good too.
