Summary

Reality is sometimes not what it appears to be.

Dr. Albert Snowden just wanted to be there for his niece, Emily, after the loss of her father. Being abducted by aliens, and then rescued by a mysterious being known as Evaran, has made that difficult. Despite their situation, they try to make the best of it while traveling through space, time, and beyond with Evaran and V, Evaran's trusty mobile artificial intelligence. With the use of Evaran's time-traveling ship, the Torvatta, they will try to maintain timeline integrity while dealing with the challenges that brings.

This box set contains the first three books in the Evaran Chronicles. If you like science fiction, time travel, technology, and adventure with a space opera bent, then this series is for you.

Entertaining time travel collection

At first glance, a mysterious alien allowing a couple of humans to accompany him on his time machine through a series of crazy adventures sounds rather like Doctor Who, but a lot of the interactions throughout these books serves to put some distance between them and that iconic series.

While the titular hero, Evaran, shares a number of traits with the Doctor, he also tends to indulge in actual violence more often when the situation requires it and throughout the book there is more use of time travel mechanics to deal with an issue e.g. going back a few years so that the people you met had time to discuss something and reach a decision in time for them to be of help. The companions of Evaran are Dr Snowden and his niece Emily and throughout these books they both developed as characters far more than Evaran who remained the mysterious super alien throughout.

The narrator of this book nicely enhanced the stories, giving a strong performance for all the main characters, ensuring they were all sufficiently distinctive.

Overall, these were an enjoyable set of books and I would be interested in reading more of their adventures in the future.

What a fantastic collection!

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

As with some of the other audiobooks I've had recently, this was written by an author I haven't read or listened to before. The ideas and writing are very well done and I was hooked into the characters and the story in minutes rather than hours.

As this is a three book collection I don't want to give away information that will spoil the experience for those who intend to buy this book. The characters are all sympathetic and you can relate to them easily, the action is often non stop and so rapid you have to pay attention carefully.

The first book is a lot shorter than the other two in the collection, it is almost as if the author testing the characters first before writing a note complex and time consuming adventure.

However, just because it is shorter does not mean that it lacks in quality or in depth. The main thing it does is make you want to listen to the next instalment immediately to find out what happens next.

The technology aspects can be baffling, the acronyms used can make you wonder what the author is talking about, but it doesn't make any difference to the story, and you do get an explanation of the technology at the beginning of the second and third books. Also, if you're anything like me, it only makes you more curious to find out what they are and what they do.

I loved this collection, the narrator was brilliant, making each of the different species you listen to have their own distinctive style and tone and Evaran himself is done in a very skilful manner.

I'm looking for the next book in the series as soon as I finish this review. It will be my next purchase.

Doctor who?

Evaran travels through space and time correcting faults in the timelines. Joined by the professor and Emily this audiobook collects their first 3 adventures together for a binge worthy listen.

Michael Pauley handles the voices of all the characters met throughout the universe very well.

This audiobook was given to me free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.

An epic immersive Sci Fi series!

I cannot say enough good things about this book series.
It is based on a premise of time travel ship that is controlled by a mysterious alien being whose origins are unknown.
The main characters are wonderful and by the end of the 3 books they feel like they are family and you know them as they grow so much throughout the series.
The range of story arcs is fantastic with some mystery style arcs and plenty of action arcs.

The narration is really good with all characters having distinct voices. There is some cross over for background characters but after 3 books that is bound to happen a little bit. There is no confusion when listening as to who is speaking.

I love the intricacies of the alien cultures and species interplay which gives an added depth to the whole series. All of which is supported by the performance Michael Pauley brings alive Adair Hart's immersive and well written world.

Great collection of stories!

Take 3 amazing novels about a singular and unique protagonist and this is what you get. I already had the 3 books but couldn't resist getting the collection. Love being able to listen all in one long set. Highly recommend the set. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Spellbinding story

This is one of the best stories I have heard in a long time! I listened to the pre book and was hooked. you want to keep listening to see what happens next!
I am fascinated by time travel and alternate universes and this has hooked me on this story and I cannot wait for more to be on Audible.
Michael Pauley does a fantastic job handling all the different voices that I would think it is a crew of people doing it. The sound effect are great and I cannot say I have heard another audio book that was better! I will look for other books by him!

This trilogy is really entertaining

I discovered Adair Hart via a Bookbub email. I no longer purchase books because the premise sounds interesting. It must have a minimum of 4.2 stars and sound interesting, Audible is expensive!
That said...
A wonderful time travel story, in the Jules Verne tradition. Not a whole bunch of hokie crap. Straight forward, clear and unlike many other books, every word added to the story. It's not a fast read/listen, you must pay attention but you will be, OH SO ENTERTAINED!

A Time Traveling Alien, but not Doctor Who!

I really enjoyed this box set of 3 adventures. Evaran is a time travelling alien. He meets 4 humans who have been kidnapped from Earth and are living inside The Matrix. He awakens them and the group tries to escape from the massive ship, but other aliens on board are trying to find a way off, too, and not that friendly.
In Book 2, Evaran returns to Earth 3 months later and invites Professor Snowden and his niece Emily to join him for an adventure. They travel to a planet where a where a gathering of aliens from different worlds are meeting for a sort of convention. They meet a woman who is human, but from another planet that was populated by other humans taken from Earth over the years. The group offers to help her obtain some crystals and their holder to present as a peace offering. They must travel back in time to obtain some and also find treachery from an ambassador who wants to prevent their mission from being a success.
In Book 3, The group is hit by a time rift. They find that Earth has dominated the galaxy and is hellbent on destroying any non-human race they encounter. This leads them back in time to 2600 BC to try to stop the alien who started all this.

Fun and exciting stories with good characters who get fleshed out over the course of the books, except for Evaran, who must remain an enigma to all as he is from another dimension.
The narrator was pretty good, too, even with all the voices. However, I have to admit that Professor Snowden came across as a whiny and frail priss. But overall, Michael Pauley did a pretty good job.

Looking forward to more in this series.

If you like Dr. Who, you'll like this

It took a bit to realize that these are basically Dr. Who stories, but not 'official'. If you like Dr. Who, these stories will fill that need. They have the same flow and feel of many of the Dr. Who episodes. The main character is a time traveler with some quirks.

Overall I enjoyed the stories. They were lighthearted and fun.
They did get a little long at times and parts were plodding. It seems to need a bit of editing to cut out some excess stuff and it would have improved this overall.

An awesome Scifi Series

The series has great elements in it; aliens, space opera, advance tech, time travel, character growth. It was some what reminiscent of Doctor who, though I admit to not watching much doctor who. It was very entertaining and hard to put down, but I felt it lacked something. I found it hard caring much for the characters, maybe because of knowing Everan is all powerful and things always end well. It did start getting more real by the third book. The ending of book 2 was a tearjerker.

Interesting and entertaining time travel adventure

I thoroughly enjoyed this unique and entertaining time travel odyssey. The adventures are interesting and I enjoyed the characters, especially the Dr. and Emily who suddenly discover the world is much bigger than they realized. The story really drew me in and I listened eager to know what would happen next.

The narration was excellent. Mr. Pauley did a great job giving the various characters different voices, and the sound effects added to the atmosphere.

missed the mark for me

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I can't help but compare this trilogy to Dr. Who, as several other reviewers already have. It really does closely mirror several key aspects of the beloved sci fi series. I think, had I not been so familiar with Dr. Who, I might have enjoyed this far more than I did. It's like listening to a cover song by a talented singer. It's good... just doesn't compare to the original. This was a valiant attempt, but the knock-off vibe, coupled with somewhat dry narration, just made this one miss the mark for me.

Entertaining time travel stories about adventures of Evaran and his companions, Emily, her uncle Dr Snowden, and the artificial intelligence V. If you like adventure SF, and you like value ( over 25 hours} for your credit, then The Everan Chronicles is for you.
