From the Back Cover
The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret.
But there is another secret even less known . . . and far more terrifying.
As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.”
Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent—caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders—along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country—and back through time and malleable memory—is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill . . .

*Warning: The Breach Trilogy should be read in the order the 3 books were published, this will enhance reading pleasure and comprehension. The 3 novels are NOT stand alone reads—IMHO.
Patrick Lee’s science fiction Breach trilogy is a terrific sci-fi thriller. The first novel, The Breach, begins the saga with Travis and Paige when an ion experiment goes terribly wrong bringing about the breach, a tear in the earth’s space time continuum, into existence. The breach anomaly is studied and slowly became understood as strange items/devices known as “entities” periodically came through the breach from the “other side”—the future or maybe the long distant past?. The human condition as such, one man attempted to control the breach but ultimately he failed ending the first book.
The second installment of The Breach trilogy is Ghost Country and centers on an “entity” from the future/past that allows people to transit the breach into the future and return. This part of the sage chiefly deals with time travel and the dangers therein when the wrong people gain control of the time travel devices sent through the breach to the present. Their altruism, bordering on insanity, resulted in a terrible future of death and destruction before they themselves were eliminated by Travis and Paige.
The third and concluding Breach trilogy novel is entitled Deep Sky and it is a blockbuster gem. It successfully ties together the entire Breach trilogy with a dynamite conclusion that answers ALL nagging questions. What a tremendous literary accomplishment. My only negative comment is I was sad to see it all end and hope, like Star Trek or Star Wars, the journey would/could continue!
Character development was superb and kept all three books fresh and entertaining. The two main protagonists, Travis and Paige, evolved through all 3 novels in a very engaging way keeping the saga both interesting and engaging.
No gratuitous sex, language or violence. Great sci-fi writing and interesting time travel dilemmas and conundrums discussed.
I have now read all of Patrick Lee’s science fiction books and can say he is definitely at the top of the sci-fi genre. All are clean, crisp believable stories that pay attention to detail with no over-the-top literary hyperbole. Main characters grow and yes some die but hey that makes for real life suspense. The time travel aspects are handled realistically, as can be hypothetically surmised, and greatly enhance the overarching futurist storyline. Well done Patrick Lee, Well Done, and I am eagerly looking forward to you next book after Signal—5+ stars!
NOTE: To Repeat, it would greatly enhance the viewer’s reading pleasure and comprehension to read the Breach trilogy novels in order. In my estimation none of the novels are stand alone reads. Hence my using the same review for all three books.
If plotting and tying complex elements together are Lees' strong points as a story-teller, whats suffers a bit is his development of the main characters- Travis Chase and Paige Campbell. I would definitely like to know more about Chase. He is a hero/anti-hero type of character who should have a rich history that would sharpen the reading experience to learn.
None-the-less, Lee provides some neat twists on the old worm hole through space saga and his take on alien development is refreshing as well.
I am a little surprised at this being trllogy. Lee leaves us with kind of a cliff-hanger at the end involving Chase and future of humanity. I dont think the reading public will leave this alone and I expect Lee to be besieged by fans to close this last chapter in a new book, at some point.
I give this four stars on the thinness of the characters, but could easily go to 4.5 if that option was available.
A strong tale by a talented writer. You wont be able to put this down.
My one warning about this book: If you don't remember the first two books very well, go back and read them before you read this book. Lee makes frequent references to the events in those books without rehashing them, so you will be lost if you don't remember what happened.
