With the release of The Cain Legacy, the epic Saga of The Human Chronicles has grown to 18 books. The longevity of the series is a testament not only to the durability of the Human superman Adam Cain, but the loyalty my readers have shown over the past five years.
The secret to having a series go this long is having series-within-series, where the main character and friends face and conquer a new challenge over three or four books, before a new one crops up. It’s like life itself, as nothing ever remains the same for long.
The Cain Legacy picks up where Alien Games ended, with Adam and the gang on a mission to save Lila from the three-billion-year-old Aris. No problem, right? After all, he does have the two mutants Panur and J’nae on his side. But even the mutants are at a loss as to how you defeat an enemy that has survived that long and with technology beyond imagination.
How they do it–while also fighting the invaders from Andromeda–is why you need to read this book.
The Cain Legacy is available for pre-order until the release date of February 28, 2017, and then for direct download after that. Then be looking for #19 in the series sometime in April. There’s still a lot of adventure left in The Human Chronicles Saga.
ALIEN GAMES…The Human Chronicles #17… is up and running on Amazon.com.This is Adam Cain’s Christmas gift to you. Don’t worry. There’s a lot of peace and goodwill towards man in the book. Yet in the case of the aliens…well that’s another matter!
ALIEN GAMES opens a new chapter in The Human Chronicles, introducing new villains and new challenges for our heroes. Nothing can be left well enough alone. There’s always someone–or some THING–out to cause problems, leaving Adam and his team to teach them a lesson they won’t forget. However, this time he’s up against dual threats, which requires him to enlist the help of some old enemies, including the immortal mutant alien Panur and his creation J’nae, the former queen of the Sol-Kor.
ALIEN GAMES is now available for purchase on Amazon.com just in time for Christmas. (Note: the current online version is a clean copy with a few pesky typos from the preorder version corrected.)
I also have the second book in the Jason King series out: Treasure of the Galactic Lights.
I need to remind people that this series is NOT a book about real estate! It’s about a former Army Ranger AND real estate agent who gets in a lot of harrowing adventures throughout the galaxy–often in the pursuit of some stolen artifact or lost treasure. Bottom line: he’s in it for the money (and the girl)!
The latest Human Chronicles novel — Scorched Earth — is out and available on Amazon.com.
In this new adventure, Adam Cain returns to his roots — that of kicking ass and taking names. After the death of a very close friend and father-figure at the hands of the Juireans, Adam takes matters into his own hands and exact his brand of revenge and redemption on the aliens. He launches a Scorched Earth campaign all the way from Earth to Juir, not only to avenge the death of his friend, but also in a desperate bid to rescue Sherri and Arieel from the insane Juirean Elder, Synnoc.
This is why you read The Human Chronicles, to get your heart-pumping and pride swelling. We’re badass Humans…and no one had better get in our way.
And don’t miss The Human Chronicles #15 — The Copernicus Deception.
Coop–as he’s called–runs a starship repair and towing service, catering to the underbelly of galactic commerce–smugglers, gun-runners and others who want to get their products from Point A to Point B without government interference.
Adam’s alien friends Kaylor and Jym work for Coop, and now they’ve been ‘detained’ by a small stellar affiliation. Adam and Riyad come to their assistance, only to be ensnared in Coop’s shady dealings themselves. What follows is a whirlwind adventure of galactic intrigue and political maneuverings, with dinosaur fights, clashes with smuggler cartels, along with some old enemies–including the Juireans–determined to make Adam and Riyad pay for past indiscretions.
Having just saved the galaxy from the Sol-Kor threat you would think our heroes would be in for a little R&R? No such luck. It’s never boring being Adam Cain….
The Copernicus Deception is now available in ebook form exclusively through Amazon.
UPDATE: Sept. 15, 2016
The next book I’m working on is the second volume of the Agent to the Stars series, featuring real estate broker and space adventurer Jason King. The book is entitled Treasure of the Galactic Lights and should be out toward the end of October, 2016.
In preparation, pick up Vol. #1: The Enclaves of Sylox. It’s fun, light and thought-provoking. This could really happen!
The Enclaves of Sylox is NOW Available on Amazon.com
This story is somewhat different from my Human Chronicles books, yet also very similar, if that makes any sense? It’s still a space opera adventure dealing with Human interaction with alien civilizations and empires. Yet this story revolves around the activities of a hot-shot real estate broker working on the planet Sylox, the capital of the Galactic Union. Of course, Jason is much more than just a money-grubbing opportunist. He’s also a former Army Ranger with a set of deadly skills which come in handy in the second part of the book.
Essentially The Enclaves of Sylox is a mystery, however, it’s more of a ‘who’s behind it’ rather than a ‘who dun it’ type of mystery. There’s layer upon layer of conspiracy involving a quasi-religious artifact, whose theft is about to trigger a galactic war. The Earth has also become ensnared in this conspiracy, placing her squarely in the sights of two vindictive alien species bent on our destruction. Now all Jason King has to do is recover the artifact, capture the thief, prevent a galaxy-wide war and save the Earth from annihilation. And do all this between his real estate closings. Oh, and there’s also a super-hot woman right in the thick of things, of course, just to make it interesting. Plus chases through star systems, and shoot-outs, and fist-fights — you know, all the normal stuff I like to put in my books.
The other noticeable feature about this new book is the humor. A lot of my readers really enjoy the street-wise, genuinely-Human type of humor throughout The Human Chronicles books. In The Enclaves of Sylox, I took off the restraints. It’s much more prevalent in this new book/series, yet it’s observational humor, not slapstick. After all, Humans do have a funny way of looking at aliens, and we’re not afraid to express our opinions. But let’s face it, most aliens are basically pretty goofy. Right?
Just remember, my loyal readers: This is NOT another Adam Cain book. (For those of you needing an Adam Cain fix…I now have 16 Human Chronicles books available! This is a Jason King book. And although you will find some subtle — as well as some not so subtle — references and tie-ins to my other series, this one is a story unto itself. After all, how many space opera heroes have you seen who are real estate brokers? I’d hazard a guess that Jason King is the first.
The Enclaves of Sylox on Amazon.com … now available!
And also remember: I write fun and light sci-fi adventures. I’m not trying to provide any major social commentary or predict a dire future for mankind as a result of the poor decisions we’ve made in the past. In fact, I’m a pretty big fan of Humanity. That’s why in my books it’s the Humans who out in the galaxy kicking-ass and taking names, and not some obscure mold spore enslaving the entire race. After all, let’s get real. We ARE bad-asses!
T.R. (Tom) Harris is the author The Human Chronicles Saga series of books, an exciting tale of space adventure which was one of the bestselling science fiction series on Amazon in 2012.
Broken into two parts, Part One of the series consists of five books: The Fringe Worlds, Alien Assassin, The War of Pawns, The Tactics of Revenge and The Legend of Earth.
Part Two has begun with Cain’s Crusaders.
The second book of Part Two, The Apex Predator, is scheduled to be released in the winter of 2013.
What sets The Human Chronicles apart from other science fiction books on the market is the unique aspect of the storyline — namely that HUMANS are the Supermen in the galaxy.
As the hero of the series — ex-Navy SEAL Adam Cain — ventures further into the galaxy and jumps from one adventure to the next, he finds that he’s stronger, faster and more coordinated than just about every alien he encounters. And the fact that he’s been abducted from Earth has put Adam in a very bad mood. Now imagine Superman with a bad attitude, and you have some idea what Adam Cain can do to an unsuspecting universe. As the tagline for the series goes … Adam Cain is an Alien with an Attitude … and throughout his adventures, he makes the aliens pay for putting him in such a bad mood.
Definitely not for the faint-at-heart or the squeamish, The Human Chronicles Saga is a gritty look at the tougher side of Humanity. We are the dominate killers on our own planet — and out in space we’re just as deadly. Political correctness has no place in The Human Chronicles — even though a down-to-earth sense of humor does. This series will have you laughing and fist-pumping all the way through — and often crying out, “I can’t believe he just did that!”
Check out the entire series. It’s definitely a different take on the whole Aliens vs Humans theme. GO HUMANS!
