The Chaos Chronicles - Jeffery A. Carver

I stumbled across this set of books completely by accident while browsing different writing sites. Jeffery Carver was someone I just hadn't heard of and here I was, reading a excellent series of writing tutorials by him! (you can view them here if interest: http://www.writesf.com/ )

With a lot of browsing I wandered to his actual website. It was there I found The Chaos Chronicles. The first three of his books are in many different ereader formats and on my ipod and Nook they look fantastic. The last one is only available in PDF, however.

So let me get to the meat and potatoes of this story. Wanting to broaden my reading I decided to give his novels a try. The first one hooked me! I couldn't wait to read the second, which promptly drug me into the third. I have just now started to read the forth book. There fantastic!

Now, your probably wondering just what genre. Well, good old Science Fiction. The first book takes place on Triton, One of Neptunes moons (hence the name of the First book: Neptunes Crossing). Our protagionist is John Bandicut a pilot from Earth on his way to Triton for a good paying job doing what he does best. Things however never work as smoothly as we plan and John ends up being the one person to meet an alien presence. It is now up to John to find a way to save humanity in the face of Chaos. The books description said it best: He has to break all the rules, and sacrifice everything he holds dear, to prevent a cataclysm that would destroy humanity.

If your a Sci Fi fan, love compelling characters and a good story. Then grab a copy of these books and see for yourself. I would love to hear everyones opinion and I hope I introduced some memorable books to all of you.

The Chaos Chronicles can be found at the authors website for free download: http://www.starrigger.net/Downloads.htm


Happy Reading
Rowen

Forgot to add that the books are Adult 17+ Due to stong language and sexual situations.

Hello Rowen,

You might be interested to know that Jeffrey Carver is an active member of MobileRead.
His books have been widely publicized here and have received (as far as I can remember and surely so from myself) a good reception.

I've read his books already and really enjoyed all of them. I certainly can recommend this author and his works.

I'm not saying that Jeffrey's books are the most valuable jewels out there (they aren't imho) but, like Treven, i enjoyed all of them. I would buy another Jeffrey A. Carver book without hesitation.
