Book Review: THE RAJANI CHRONICLES 3: WAR By Brian S. Converse
THE RAJANI CHRONICLES 3: WAR
BY BRIAN S. CONVERSE
Full disclosure: I have not read the first two books in this trilogy…yet. Having said that, it still didn’t stop me from thoroughly enjoying this expertly written work of science fiction.
A little backstory: Rajani aliens are at war with intergalactic space pirates known as the Krahn. Forced to flee their home planet, the Rajini recruit five humans to aid them in their battle. There’s James Dempsey, a former Detroit police lieutenant, and the leader of the humans. Gianni, the nephew of a crime boss, who tries to hide his shady past from the others. Kieren, Gianni’s love interest. Yvette, who is hiding a secret of her own from James. And David, who may not be all that he seems.
The humans have been implanted with Johar Stones, which bless them with powers beyond their wildest imaginations. The stones are not truly stones. They are symbiotic organisms that give the humans their newfound powers and abilities. Along with their human recruits, the Rajani are also joined by Sekani and Jirina resistance fighters, all united in their fight against the Krahn. Let the war begin!
The book begins with a short recap, to catch the reader up on all that they might have missed in the two previous novels. To put it mildly, there’s quite a bit going on in this book. But I mean that in the best way possible. It’s jam packed with action, adventure, intriguing characters, and unique subplots with unexpected twists and turns. This story is as wildly unpredictable is it is immensely entertaining.
There’s not much more I can say without giving vital parts of this story away. The only question is will the Rajani emerge victorious, or will the evil Krahn conquer their adversaries? Well, there’s only one way to find out: Pick yourself up a copy of this action-packed, Sci-Fi extravaganza and see for yourself! Now I’m going to have to backtrack a bit and acquire the first two parts of this epic Sci-Fi trilogy so I can truly appreciate this exceptional saga.
So pull up a seat, pour yourself a nice big glass of fernta (alien liquor featured in the book), kick back, and enjoy the final part of this brilliant series. This book is a true gift for science fiction fans.
You can find the paperback, hardcover, and Kindle versions of this novel on Amazon, along with the first two parts of the trilogy:
