Review: The Void Protocol by F. Paul Wilson

Author: F. Paul Wilson
Publsiher: Forge
Date of publication: January 2019

Something sits in a bunker lab buried fifty feet below the grounds of Lakehurst Naval Air Station.

The product of the Lange-T�r technology confiscated from the Germans after WWII occupies a chamber of steel-reinforced ballistic glass. Despite experimentation for nearly three-quarters of a century, no one knows what it is, but illegal human research reveals what it can do. Humans with special abilities have been secretly collected--abilities that can only have come from whatever occupies the underground bunker in Lakehurst.

And so it sits, sequestered on the edge of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, slowly changing the world.

The Void Protocol is the final book in the ICE trilogy.  In this last book, Rick and Laura are working together to find people who have begun to exhibit extraordinary abilities.  Their boss wants to pay them while he studies them.  Rick and Laura begin to realize that the phenomena has closer ties to Rick's past than they ever knew.

I loved this final book.  It was a really cool story.  I don't want to give anything away because there are some surprises, especially regarding Rick.  I think you could read this as a stand alone, but the first two books will give you better context into Rick and his ICE theory.  One of the things that I also enjoyed about this series is that no character is safe.  I love that unpredictable aspect of the plot lines.  I have really enjoyed the adventures in this trilogy. I wish there was going to be one more book.  The characters and story lines have been a lot of fun.  I really loved the relationship between Rick and Laura.  I'll miss reading about them in the future.  I highly recommend this trilogy.
