Reviews of Sunborn by Jeffrey A. Carver

Benjamin Kelly reviewed on May 16, 2016

Bandicut and company have fallen out of the frying pan and into the fire in Sunborn, Book 4 of The Chaos Chronicles. This go round they actually have a choice: accept the mission and possibly die or don't accept the mission and probably die. As if saving worlds wasn't a big enough challenge for them, this time they've been tasked with saving a stellar nursery, a job that will push them to the breaking point and possibly beyond. Each book in this series has been better than the last and Sunborn is no exception. I hope Mr. Carver finishes writing Book 5 soon.
