Aggressor is a work of fiction in the action-adventure, military, and thriller subgenres. It is the opening work to a new series of the same name and was penned by author FX Holden. Intended for mature adult readers owing to adult references including wartime violence, this intelligent technothriller gives us front-row seats to a terrifying conflict that could spark a war larger than the world has ever seen before. With China and Taiwan at the center of a maelstrom of political and international conflict, this near-future military tale explores the consequences of conflict from multiple viewpoints, from civilians to serving personnel and decision-makers who hold the lives of countless others in their hands.
Author FX Holden always knows how to craft a thrilling read, and this new series starts off with plenty of action, adventure, and thrilling scenes where the stakes could not be higher. Beyond this, there’s also a really intelligent level of plotting that takes a thread of terrifying realities that we currently face and pulls at them to create a nightmarish vision of things that could well come to pass in the future of our planet. It’s these sparks of realism that keep the story grounded, along with the sensitive and well-considered multi-perspective portrayal. I liked that this work didn’t just contain top minds and gung-ho action heroes but really showcased the hard work, dedication, terror, and hope of ordinary people caught up in unimaginable conflict. Overall, fans of the author will surely find Aggressor to be the best novel yet, and newcomers who love action-packed military thrillers are in for a treat.
