Review

5 Stars This book was intriguing, disturbing, provocative, a real page turner....  The book is provocative because the author does an amazing job of showing both sides of the war between the humans and the Ultras (the would be slaves). I for one sympathized with both sides. The book is intriguing because the Ultras are fascinating. I wanted to know everything about Pietas. ... I want to read more about his people. - Amazon reader

From the Author

When I write, I feed my muse with music, especially when I choreograph an emotional moment, or an action scene. My immortal hero, Pietas, is at home with himself, cocky, sure, and confident. He comes across as a narcissist but in truth, he harbors no doubt whatsoever about his abilities. At the beginning of Bringer of Chaos, Pietas is already almost two thousand years old. A man should have plumbed the depth of his strengths and weaknesses by then, and Pietas has mastered them. Sadly, that doesn't mean he always makes the best choices.
Writing the fight scene in chapter six meant I needed new mood music. The sequence where Pietas faces eight reanimated special ops soldiers was unlike anything I'd written before. I studied stunts in action movies and listened to so much new music I was afraid I'd forget what I was there to do. I finally settled on combinations of moves by Jackie Chan (for sheer speed) and Captain America (for smooth motion). I wrote notes such as "jumps on and spins" or "leaps and twists". Not much, but it was enough for me to write.
I believe the best way to write a fight is not to spend too much time on details. I know that sounds wrong, but the truth is, the human mind can picture action much better if writers don't try to fill in all the blanks.
A punch to the jaw is fast and hard. Taking the time to explain the impact of the fist against flesh and the way the jaw moves, the expression on the person's face, how they fall back -- that takes up time. Writing a fight means writing a scene that's fast. Pietas is decisive. He doesn't hesitate to do whatever it takes to win. To show his incredible speed and the reason he would take the risks he did, the reader needed to understand his desperation.
Those who had betrayed him had given Pietas two options. Surrender or die a horrible final death by fire. They trapped him in a situation and location that made escape impossible. Defiant even in defeat, he created a third option of his own, and that is what sets the scene for the rest of the book. Was it a mistake for him to have chosen that option? Should he have submitted? Those are questions Pietas will have to answer for himself.
In my other scifi stories, I portrayed Pietas as the dark and dreaded king no one dares to cross. How did he become such a fearsome creature? This book reveals the origin of his journey into the bleak shadows of his soul.
On YouTube, the music video Queen's Breach by Critical Mass is listed as "epic action aggressive driving rock powerful". One listen and you'll agree. If that song isn't Pietas in action as a fighter, I don't know what is. Read chapter six of this book while you listen to that, and you'll see him in action. I listened to it repeatedly while I choreographed and wrote the fight of his immortal life.
