I should have followed my own advice before picking up this novel: Don't Read Series Books Too Close Together.

I tend to never finish a series because I grow tired of the template, or the author's writing quirks start to annoy me. I've read four Patrick Lee novels in less than a month, and Deep Sky, which is the last book in the Travis Chase trilogy, was so gonzo that I'm glad to have a break from Mr. Lee.

Every book in the Chase series involves time travel, government conspiracy, a looming disast

I. Am. Thrilled. Discombobulated. Agog. Awestruck. Floored. Sky-high. Fucking freaked out.

Gimme a second.

Ok: in "Deep Sky," the third and final book featuring Travis Chase and Tangent and a host of tantalizing scientific mysteries, Patrick Lee brings his entire story to a resounding finish with a deft act of closure that has left me a little winded and very, very pleased. My mind is blown.

I tell you, I am so often disappointed by the endings of books that I now have low expectations for ever
Originally Reviewed on The Book Smugglers

In the few years Travis Chase has been free from prison, he’s learned of an anomaly called “The Breach” and the alien technologies – or entities – it inexplicably produces. He’s joined Tangent, the top secret government agency responsible for protecting, analyzing, and understanding The Breach, and has become one of its the top members, next to his girlfriend Paige Campbell. Together, Paige and Travis have stopped a renegade Tangent agent equipped with an
There's no doubt that Patrick Lee is one of my new favorite authors. I'm already anxiously awaiting his next book. The first two books rank as some of my favorite sci-fi/action books of all time. They're simply fantastic reads.

That being said, I came away fairly disappointed in Deep Sky. Without ruining anything for those who haven't read the series, the build up in the first two was so grand that by the time the big reveal occurred, it felt like all the air was released from my tires. That's no
The more I read books by this author, the more I become a fan. His books are well paced and he creates great suspense. His plots seem a little complicated at times with all the sci-fi elements, but he doesn't ever let those elements run a muck. They are tightly controlled and never forgotten. I always hate dangling threads at the end. This one had a great twist at the end, that I didn't see coming, so that was fun.

Another thing I like are his characters. They are well drawn and purposeful. It n

Well, I understand why some people hate this book now. It ends on a serious cliffhanger. And it's not so much that I'm unsure which option the hero chooses, it's that I want to see that future play out. Being thwarted of that irks me.

The story's about a long hidden plot. Years ago, a guy got a message from outer space and did something with it. Figuring out what that is is the whole plot of the book. I'm still not entirely clear on what that was. Or why such organized resistance could have or di

In "Deep Sky," our hero Jack Bauer - excuse me, Travis Chase - and his allies in Fringe Division - excuse me, Tangent - face their most dangerous foes yet as they seek an answer to what's on the other side of The Breach, a mysterious hole into another dimension. President Harrison Ford - excuse me, Richard Garner - is [SPOILER OMITTED] and it's up to the thoroughly bland but incredibly murderous John McClane - excuse me, Travis Chase - to rescue ALL OF HUMANITY. I mean look, this series is at on ...more

After finding "The Breach" on accident while bored on vacation, I became an instant fan of Patrick Lee and his Travis Chase/Tangent series. Each book is intense, fast paced and riddled by mysteries and techno-babble sci-fi. The mysteries and techno-babble remain in "Deep Sky," as well as the quick tempo and a ticking-clock, end-of-the-world consequence if they all fail. Yet, this novel fails in several specific instances; namely, that he intersperses his fast action sequences with over-wrought i ...more
Not as good as "The Breach", but on par with the second book in the series. The end was interesting and neatly tied together the trilogy, but it felt a bit like Lee didn't know how to explain everything in an interesting way so he simply had one of the characters talk at the reader for about twenty pages. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book.

Dear Patrick Lee,

I listened to your first book as a freebie from and I am now hooked on your books. You left me hanging at the end of this one, but in a good way, as it means I will be purchasing the next one!

Keep 'em coming!


A huge fan

So...we finally get to the end of the trilogy. It's a good trilogy. The writer in this ser4ies has set up an interesting and intricate plot. He plays with time and space. You'll have to be willing to accept his view of how time interaction and the explanation he gives about paradox.

All that said if you've enjoyed the rest of the trilogy I think you'll like this one...and we get an explanation of something we saw earlier in the books.

I liked this book and I like the trilogy, thus I moved right to

eep Sky is Patrick Lee's third and final book in his Breach Trilogy, detailing the adventures of Travis Chase and Paige Campbell. Travis and Paige are involved with "The Breach" - a mysterious opening in the fabric of reality deep below the ground in Wyoming which is known, to a select few, as an opening that spews forth mysterious pieces of advanced technology known as "entities". With Deep Sky, Lee brings his story of the Breach to a close, including an explanation of what the Breach is, why i ...more
Concluding volume of a trilogy begun with The Breach and followed by Ghost Country.

Here's the set-up.

An accident in 1978 when a new Ion Collider was turned on created the Breach, a sort of wormhole. Several times a day, pieces of technology, dubbed Entities, come through, a technology far in advance of our own. It was all kept secret by the government and Border Town, a subsurface research facility grew up around it. No Entity could be taken off-site.

Tangent was the name of the covert organizati
The second book in this series was a very good book. The first and third suffered form this: Two housewives take on two company's of Army Rangers with a iron skillet and a pair of chopsticks, and they come out on top. Then they do it again and again. Yes, it's an exaggeration, but it makes the point. Still, the story of the Breach, and the characters evolved, is very good sci-fi fantasy. The thing that saves this book, is the way the Author ties all the ends together to make a satisfying trilogy ...more
Outstanding finish to the trilogy. Incredibly interesting story that provides an astonishing wrap to the entire storyline. Great storytelling.
Ok... the ending. After a few minutes or so ( the pause as you are done reading but not quite finished with the novel, I sat and contemplated the ending. Not a cliff-hanger and I guess it ended the best it could or should, as I was very anxious the ending would be : and then he stepped through ( referring to the breach, worm-hole or bridge in time and space) So we do get the explanation or at least elaborated or clarified some of the questions this novel brought up over the trilogy.
I personall
This is the third and final book in the Travis Chase series about "the breach." I've put it on my thriller bookshelf, because it is most of all a pager turning thriller. But it's also a mystery with some SciFi mixed it. The result is very well done and a terrific series. I'm very satisfied with the fun of reading all 3 books, plus the ending to this unbelievably twisty, turn-y tale is satisfying as well.

In this final installment, Travis and Paige learn about the Scaler project - so secret there

Audiobook Review
3 3/4 Stars

In the third book of "The Breach" series, things get really wonky. If you've read this series so far, and you NEED to read them in order, you might ask, "How could they get any wonkier???" Read Deep Sky. By the time I finished this sci-fi thriller, the space/time paradoxes turned my mental whiplash into a traumatic brain injury. I'm still so confused about the story line(s) that I can't recount with any logic the second half of the story. We as humans bound to a linear
A fast-paced political sci-fi thriller? Yes, indeed. I was a bit confused in the beginning, and figured that that was the nature of the beast and things would work themselves out. Only later did I realize this is the third, and final, book in a series. I wish I had known before I began. By the time I realized it, I was too far in to just stop and go back. Overall, however, an enjoyable read with a fantastic ending.
Not till I read the blurb in the beginning, did I know this was a trilogy, when I started his series. This trilogy was a great action/sci-fi series. Conspiracy throughout, with a believable factor to the stories. I felt this one was not quite as good as the first two, but still plenty of action. With a "what do you think?" ending.
Patrick Lee is a new favorite author - can't wait for his next series/trilogy or stand alone.
I think this book was ok, certainly much better than most of what passes for science fiction nowdays. I'm grateful that this appears to be the end of the series, with a definitive end, and hope that the author will not be tempted to milk the franchise.

Things I liked: interesting plot, suspense, with an unexpected twist, good pace, (somewhat) likeable character.

Things I didn't like:

1. Technology involved is essentially "magic". Yes, the author says that it came from a much more advanced civil
Die Kritik möchte ich gerne aufteilen, zum einen für Band 3 und zum anderen für die Trilogie.

Band 3:
Auch der abschließende dritte Teil der Trilogie kann leider nicht ganz mit dem überragenden Auftaktband mithalten. Es dreht sich natürlich wieder um eine Verschwörung gegen Tangent und eine neue Entität. Diese ermöglicht es, geistig an einen bestimmten Zeitpunkt seiner eigenen Erinnerungen "zurückzureisen" und die Dinge von dort aus komplett anders zu erleben. Man kann es sich als eine Art Zeitrei
Deep Sky is more science fiction than its previous two counterparts, The Breach and Ghost Country, but it is not over the top. I don't read science fiction all that often because I find they are just a little too 'weird', but Patrick Lee does a fantastic job of balancing political power struggles, a thrilling race against the clock, and alien technology that is constantly aiding and abetting the protagonists. I find that any author who attempts to tackle a worm hole / time and space conundrum on ...more
Deep Sky by Patrick Lee is the final installment in “The Breach” series. This novel is both more and less than I expected. Let me state that I did not realize this was the final novel in the series and so the ending came as an even bigger surprise because it was the end. And oh what an ending! There is no way I will talk about this ending, except to say that once I thought the novel was over, the last couple pages Blew. My. Mind.

Now these novels are never going to win any awards, they are “light
Another interesting entry in the series. I THINK I understand what all happened. It's a little confusing but still a lot of novel ideas here.
I'm hovering between 3 and 4 stars at the moment on this one. As the final book in a trilogy, I feel kind of let down. I was totally on board until somewhere in the last 25%. Then it kind of lost me. And the ending...still considering that one. On one hand, kind of a let down. On the other, something to think about in more depth. I really enjoyed the main character, but now feel kind about him. Like I never really got to know him.

I really liked reading this series, but can also see wher

As with the other two books in this series, Deep Sky was fast paced and engrossing. However, I lost track of the story after Travis returns from his Tap-enabled journey back to the day. I re-read the transition several times but couldn't figure out who were the good and bad guys and why! I simply didn't get how Paige and Betheny survived. I didn't get how Garner was so pivotal. Perhaps I'm not just quick enough, who knows. I did enjoy the ending discussion with Garner. In the end, I just don't t ...more

The third novel in Patrick Lee's Breach trilogy moves at breakneck speed, sparing not a jot of character development, and employing some heavy science fiction to wrap up the plot trajectory of the previous two novels. It moves so quickly that some characters are barely afterthoughts (Bethany's role seems relegated to being gape-jawed as events unfold). Having said that, it is a rollicking ride and everything does tie up. I wasn't sure what was going to happen right up to the final pages (final s ...more
So the 3rd and final story in the Breach trilogy had some very high expectations to meet. The story that develops in the first two books necessitated a grad ending and big reveal that justified the time and energy spent reading the first two novels. The reader expects that by the end of this book, the breach needs explained, what's on the other side, why entities come through, who made the entities, why Travis's fate may perhaps be a dark one, and why he and Paige ultimately may be at odds with ...more
