From the Back Cover
In the Terran Crescent, home of mankind, Ultras--human-like, genetically enhanced and effectively immortal--were a boon. Ultra scientists eliminated disease and implemented incredible advances in science, technology, manufacturing, and space travel. Ultra warriors advanced mankind's territory and kept its borders safe.
Ultras served without choice, bound by genetic shackles.
When the slave-race learned how to overthrow those shackles and take command, they became mankind's greatest threat. By 4501 AD, Ultras dominated the galaxy.
One faction conspired against the others.
Hiding among humans as humans, they manipulated their Ultra brethren into peace talks. On an isolated starport in the central part of the galaxy, they captured the High Council and its Chancellor, Pietas.
Holding the leaders hostage, the traitors duped half a million loyal Ultras into surrendering, and then transported the captives across the galaxy to an undeveloped planet.
They exiled walking weapons who could never die.
Left them to survive under the most primitive conditions, and then...
Big, big mistake.

Pietras and his kin are immortal. He is the War Leader of the Ultras, Chancellor of the High Council. Even broken he remained their leader. However, his father, Mahikos, the beast who tortured him and his sister throughout their lives was on this planet as well. As well as many people he loves or will grow to love. Some are immortal, one is human, and then there are also immortal giant panthers.
During their journey, they discover many lies that had been presented as truths, until with the help of others, the real truths were laid bare. But learning a truth can be painful as well, and more than one suffers from the lies and truths.
While a dense and often dark story, it was a fabulous read and I highly recommend it.
Kayelle does a masterful job of showing Pietas' emotions with all the different influencers in his life, but especially with Six. These books make me wonder why I haven't read science fiction much before. Or maybe I was just waiting for the best to come my way…?
This is the second in the series and I haven't read the first, which was a bit of challenge for my book OCD. Fortunately, the author gives enough of the backstory that I didn't feel lost. Partly due to the fact that much of the book focuses on what lead Pietas and his people to be stuck on the planet and his coming to terms with just how badly his father needs to get dead.
More bro-mance than romance, the major relationship in the story is not between Pietas(m) and Joss(f) but Pietas and Six (m), his comrade in arms. Not that Pietas and Joss don't have super chemistry and strong romantic relationship, but all the drama is with Six. On the steam level - other than kissing, closed door all the way.
On the downside, its a bit heavy on the angst for main characters who are supposedly remorseless killers, and while I enjoy PNR blended into sci-fi, some of the 'powers' pushed me into eye-rolling.
A complete story, it does end with the setup for the next book, which I will read.
As I read Bringer of Chaos, my senses were on overload. I could feel every ounce of pain, heartache, rage, wonderment and love right along with the characters. I shared in joyous reunions, the wonderment of communicating with “the tribe”, the enjoyment of just being with a true friend as well as the rage and hurt caused by the enemy. And let’s not forget the pain of betrayal. Yes, this book has all of those things going on. Plus it’s written so tremendously well, that you simply can’t put it down because you just have to know what’s going to happen next.
This adventure that Pietas and his people are living through will grab ahold and keep you in it’s grip page after page. I can’t recommend the The Sempervian Saga enough. The series can be summed up in Six’s favorite word: “WOW”! Yep that just about sums it up for me, and I can’t wait to see where the series leads us next. 2 Thumbs Up for what is a 10 Star Read in a 10 Star Series! I can’t recommend it enough. It’s a Definite Must Read!!!
