"When everything you know is destroyed, how do you move on?"
Dr. Danielle Stevens was an astronaut orbiting the Earth
when disaster struck. Almost overnight, Earth was ravaged
by a horrible plague that seemed to leave no survivors.
Safe aboard the space station, Danielle and her companions
waited helplessly for news from the surface. When news
came, it was from the opposite direction. In the middle of
another fruitless attempt to contact home, the team was
shocked when their transmission was interrupted by honest
to God aliens. Although the aliens claimed to be peaceful,
Danielle can't help but be mistrustful, especially when she
starts to have feelings for two of the aliens that are more
serious than they should be.
Sabin and Om were part of a team sent by the Galactic
Federation to travel to Earth. When they arrived, it was to
discover the planet was decimated, the population mostly
dead from a devastating plague. When they made contact with
a small group of survivors orbiting the planet, they
quickly agreed to travel to the surface to see if they
could be of any assistance. When the two teams reached
their home base, the death and devastation was terrible.
Reeling with the pain of their discoveries, the humans are
easy targets for the ulterior motives of the Galactic
Leaders. But when Sabin and Om realize that they have
feelings for Danielle, will they be able to save their new
love and make a life together?
CHAOS FORGED was a very good story. Ms. O'Connor does an
excellent job with her setting, and makes the reader feel
as if they are there with the characters. Danielle was a
very strong woman, and I really liked that about her. She
was not afraid to do what she needed to do, even if that
meant making a relationship work with two aliens. Sabin's
character really reminded me of a Vulcan, or a Catteni at
first, because he was not really able to show his emotions.
The whole idea of an entire race of beings coming from
clones was really interesting, and helped to add another
aspect to the story. The attraction between the characters
was very strong, and the relationship they formed was very
good, even if it was not very traditional. All in all,
CHAOS FORGED was a great read!

Stranded on the space station when the worst plague the world has even known strikes, the crew of the Pegasus can only watch helplessly as their civilization crumbles. Have the visitors from the other side of the universe truly come to help? Or are they scavengers, come to feed upon the carcass of a once great civilization?
Trust is a scarce commodity in the wake of the disaster. Yet, despite her reservations, Danielle finds herself drawn to the visitor, Sabin—perhaps because he is coolly, logically competent in a sea of madness?
