Fantastic Sci-fi adventure - but read at your own risk as there may be spoilers

Wow. This book was intriguing, disturbing, provocative, a real page turner. It is thousands of years in the future. Man has created beings to do everything for them, labor, war, you name it. But they created them as virtual slaves. Their mistake was, they made them better than humans. Well, guess what, slaves revolt. And their leader, Pietas, is the out for revenge. But whatever you do, do not underestimate the human

Bringer of Chaos: The Origin of Pietas by Kayelle Allen. I loved this story! A sci-fi bromance like nothing else I’ve ever read. Pietas – the Ultra of awesome powers, both mental and physical – is left helpless and doomed by humans and a betrayer from his own kind. Six – a once-human ghost who should be the sworn enemy of any Ultra – saves Pietas from a destiny worse than physical death. The two are then marooned together on a distant, most likely deserted planet. The Ultra has vowed never to ac ...more

5 STARS for this AMAZING book.

I'm normally not a Scifi reader, but I heard from a friend about author Kayelle Allens' NEW Scifi book; Bringer of Chaos and had to give it a read.

I'm so glad I did. This is an intriguing saga. I'm so impressed with this author. Her knowledge and talents as a writer are what drew me into this fabulous story. This woman has learned her craft well. She can take a non-Scifi reader and turn her into a fan. I'm so looking forward to reading her next book.

Bringer of Chaos
So after reading a bunch of the other books set in this universe and being somewhat exposed to Pietas as a psychotic, evil bastard, it was fascinating to see how he got there. And that he really may not be that evil at all, but more a product of his circumstances. I can see why he'd feel the way he does. So trying to avoid spoilers!!!

I wish the book continued, I want to know what happened next!!!!

As you might suspect from the title, this book is not a complete novel. It is the lengthy introduction to what promises to become an epic series.

As such, there are certain expectations that the prospective reader must get straight. Because of the epic nature of the project, do not expect subtle characterization. These people – and I use the term loosely – are huger-than-life, archetypical monsters. Even the human character has superhuman qualities. They also have superhuman egos, and give way to

This first of the Bringer of Chaos series books starts pretty much where the short story "Lights Out" did, but it is told from Pietas' perspective. As leader of the Ultras, Pietas is arrogant, demanding, and the best his race has to offer. He hates humans. He hates his father only slightly less. He has agreed to peace talks with the humans only because the Ultras' council, with whom his father holds sway, has demanded it, but he already knows that the humans will do nothing but lie and cheat.

(review request submitted by the author for an honest critique)

As a fan of science fiction and fantasy, I was eager to dive into Bringer of Chaos: the Origin of Pietas. Based off the book summary, my expectations were set high. Certain aspects of the story caught my interest, but then, several sections dragged on and didn't reach their full potential.

High points: Kayelle invented the Ultras. Whose abilities would astound anyone. They heal quickly, diseases don't affect them, can survive any wo

Kayelle Allen did a tour in the US Navy, where she climbed around airplanes (on the ground, thankfully) fixing black boxes that helped pilots find their way home.
She wrote her first science fiction novel at 18 and to this day, it's hidden under the bed, where she vows it will remain. Gems from it, however, launched several series in her galaxy-wide universe of stories.
From childhood, Kayelle was t
