Description: In The War of Pawns, Adam Cain, a Human lost in a galaxy of alien empires and exotic locales, fights desperately to return to Earth, only to find that his homecoming is anything but joyous. In the aftermath of a devastating attack upon the Earth, Adam learns that the Humans have been played for fools by the evil Klin race. Now he has two enemies to fight — the Juireans, and now the Klin.
Yet as before, the aliens do not realize what trouble they’re in. Now they’re up against an entire Planet of Supermen! Pity their weak and fragile bodies. Adam Cain — as well as the entire Human Race — is out for revenge!
Review 3 of 5 Stars
I read The War of Pawns, which is the third book in T.R. Harris’ series The Human Chronicles. Our adventurers have made it home, but things aren’t as they were before and the merry band is soon heading out for more adventure as the war kicks up. As I’ve stated in previous reviews for this series, the story is really good and a lot of fun. As this is book three I hate to give away too much of the story, but the die has been cast and the alien intrigue is now clear to more than just Adam Cain and his companions as they head out to do battle and protect the interests of the human race. Once again, however, the lack of care with editing and proofreading brought down the score. It’s wonderful to have a great story and readers want that, but when the lack of editing is evident on almost every page it becomes a problem that distracts me from the story. Independently published or not, at least have some of your friends read it over for errors and ask that they mark them. That said, I’ve had a great time running around in this universe and will probably read the fourth book that has been announced. If you enjoy a good action/science fiction adventure story this may be for you if you’re willing to take the editing errors with a grain of salt.
