Bringer of Chaos: The Origin of Pietas by Kayelle Allen. I loved this story! A sci-fi bromance like nothing else I’ve ever read. Pietas – the Ultra of awesome powers, both mental and physical – is left helpless and doomed by humans and a betrayer from his own kind. Six – a once-human ghost who should be the sworn enemy of any Ultra – saves Pietas from a destiny worse than physical death. The two are then marooned together on a distant, most likely deserted planet. The Ultra has vowed never to accept help from anyone even close to human. That vow is challenged by his need to survive. The ghost has pledged to destroy all Ultras on sight. Watching Pietas and Six grapple through this deep dilemma was nothing short of beautiful for me, If these adversaries can navigate the chasm of hatred, distrust and male ego between them, maybe there’s hope for our own fractured world. I called this a bromance, but it is much more. I highly recommend you read and find out why. Like me, you also will be eager for the follow-up, Bringer of Chaos: Harvest of Blood. Alice Orr – Author of A Villain for Vanessa – Riverton Road Romantic Suspense Series Book 4.

Wow. This book was intriguing, disturbing, provocative, a real page turner. It is thousands of years in the future. Man has created beings to do everything for them, labor, war, you name it. But they created them as virtual slaves. Their mistake was, they made them better than humans. Well, guess what, slaves revolt. And their leader, Pietas, is the out for revenge. But whatever you do, do not underestimate the human will to survive. 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. But don't get me wrong, this is not a book about a long drawn out war, it is a book about two enemies coming to rely on one another for survival. And in that we learn who they really are. Even at the end of the book I could not decide if Pietas was the good guy or the bad guy. I just know I want to read more about his people.

The writing in this series is really good. Ms. Allen writes fast but with much depth of character. I really like the dilemma's her characters face. Also she manages to make human nature so recognizable and also so wrong at the same time. Great writing.
I really liked this background view of the bad guy in the series as far as I have been reading. The interaction between the human and the ultra makes both their points of view that much more believable. It is I think the first half of a two book story line, because although it has a clear ending, it also has a clear starting point for the return of the ultra's. I'm really looking forward to the next book.

He's painted as a complete psycho in other books. It's really great to get some insight into who he truly is.

Great book. But now I desperately want the next one!!!!

(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)

As a fan of science fiction and fantasy, I was eager to dive into Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas. Based off the book summary, my expectations were set high. Certain aspects of the story caught my interest, but then, several sections dragged on and didn't reach their full potential.

High points: Kayelle invented the Ultras. Whose abilities would astound anyone. They heal quickly, diseases don't affect them, can survive any wound, and can be "reborn". Only two ways ensured their death was permanent. 1) Immolate, freeze and then shatter the Ultra. 2) Put the Ultra through a bone shredder.

During Pietas captivity, he never met his true death. Actually, he was reborn 1000 times over and, according to him, that's almost worse than dying. Imagine your body wasting away, perishing, coming alive again, & repeat. I can see why Pietas had no love for humans --- Until he met Six (not his real name).

Six started off his adversary but things changed in the year it took them to reach Sempervia. Once they landed, Six became the hunter, caregiver, protector, comrade and, most importantly, a friend to Pietas (or as Six dubbed him, Pi).

There on Sempervia, I felt Kayelle could've done so much more for the readers. She could've added more scifi elements to this science fiction tale. I expected more trouble with the elements. Heck, give me a battle with unknown creatures on the island. Something. Anything.

We did see a storm, numerous birds, and cats but that's it. But basically, there was nothing really holding my interest.

I, once again, had such high hope things would pick up when Pi finally reconnected with the other Ultras in chapter 24 but nope, nothing.
