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.

Excellent, what more needs to be said.

These books by Adair Hart are breath of fresh air to the genera. Good story line and strong character development.
I have only read 2 of the 3 books in the 3 book offer but am highly delighted with the series so far. In fact so delighted I have ordered the remaining 4 books in the series and the prequel .
The main character Evaran is a bit of an enigma and by the end of book two I feel there are dark things in his past yet to be discovered. He is accompanied by two humans (Dr. Albert Snowden and his niece, Emily) and his robot sidekick "V".
The story starts with Dr. Snowden and Emily being awoken on a space ship by Evaran. Evaran explains that they and two other humans, have been kidnapped by alien specimen hunters. and so the story begins.
They have to get off the ship, which is infested with other specimens and an invading armed force.
Not everyone makes it off alive .
Book two introduces another human race "the Fadorian". Somehow a timeline has been altered and an ancient artifact is not where it should be. So Evaran sets off with Dr.Snowden, Emily, "V" and some other characters they pick up for the trip. Traveling through time and space to collect 3 parts of the ancient artifact "the Arkaron" to increase the standing of the Fadorian people and repair the timeline.
However it turns out that changes in the past by Evaran had an unforeseen effect in the present and a whole race has been lost. The sole survivor of the race is now hunting Evaran, Dr.Snowden, Emily and "V" and getting bounty hunters to apprehend them.
And so the story continue ....

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.

Why do this?

This author here definitely has skill, but as so many others have said, the story is such an obvious ripoff of Dr. Who that I just can't overlook it. I tried, honestly. We have a time traveling alien guy who acts as a champion of justice. He has a magic ring, a space ship that is larger on the inside, and many of the same personal characteristics. The guy IS Dr. Who.

If you like to write and have talent, why on earth would you do something so self-sabotaging as to steal someone else's well established idea? Why waste time writing a series of books that is not your own creation? For Crikey's sake, spend some time coming up with your own idea and write a great story!

I just don't get it.

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!

Needs Some Editing....

I really wanted to like this book. Time and space themed science fiction on a galactic scale intertwined with a lesbian love story. It had potential but someone needs to go through and edit and maybe pull out the thesaurus. The author uses the same phrases and descriptions over and over and over. You could make this into some sort of drinking game I suppose. I finally heard the phrases " jerked his head back " and "half smiled" about fifty times too many and had to stop at about the half way point. Basically, a once over by a good editor could probably shape this into a decent book.

Great Story

I really liked this series. At first, I found Evaran too emotionally monotone. Throughout the adventures, he thawed and I came to understand him and why he was so emotionless to begin with. The others characters had depth and stuck with me. The worlds, time travel, alternate dimensions, and aliens were entertaining and well thought out. I will be continuing the series.

I just found a new universe to enjoy.

I received this audiobook from the author at my request in exchange for an unbiased review.

Not sure where to begin, but I greatly enjoyed the story. Narration was on point.

Looking forward to further adventures with Everan, Doc and Emily.

Awesome Trilogy

Wow...that’s what I thought when this trilogy ended. I don’t usually enjoy sci-fi novels that include space aliens, but I’m so very glad I continued listening to this. It is not “cheesy” or typical of the alien stereotype. Thank you Adair for that.

I chose the book(s) because of the time travel element and was not disappointed. There were a couple of times during book 3 that I had to really pay attention so as not to lose which “reality” I was in. I liked that; it caused me to stop a minute and think about the context. Very nice!

I would have enjoyed seeing the “J” character from book 1 have more scenes. (Sorry, I can’t remember his name) He really is a “save the day” kind of guy. However the storyline with Sanjay is great. I think it’s book 2 that goes into detail and made me think....wow, again.

I’m so glad Michael Pauley narrated all three books. He did a fantastic job. I was never confused about which character he was voicing. Fantastic work Michael!

I recommend listening to the trilogy as one book. It keeps the momentum going and I honestly didn’t want it to stop. I was given a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for my unbiased review.
