Barry Hunter
It is 2132 and man has expanded his reach into space. They are now so far from Earth that they must supply their needs without any assistance. Weapons range from twentieth century rifles and grenades to technological wonders. The group of Commandos known as the Wolverines must work together to survive where survival is not guaranteed.

Zach Murphy and his team are assigned the job of liberating the people of Chronos which has been taken over by the Syndicate. Chronos is valuable to the

Midwest Book Review, Volume 9, Number 7 July 2010

As the sights of man's universe expands, so do its battles for freedom. "Chronos" tells the story of Zach Murphy and the Wolverines as Earth's commandos are tasked with a mission to free the people, both human and alien, of Chronos from the iron grasp of an organization oppressing them. The task is never easy, and "Chronos" proves to be a fun and exciting adventure in science fiction.

    Good book

    This book is a great read if you like military science fiction. It contains a lot of technical detail about weaponry. Although if you're expecting to read about "ray guns", you'll be disappointed. Based on the premise that modern weapons would be difficult to maintain so far from a supply source, the characters actually use old-fashioned weapons in their fights with robots.
    It's a quick read with a good plot. Left me wanting a sequel.

    Fighting robots with lasers and rockets!

    I have read the Gulag Moon before i read Chronos and had an idea what to expect. The book follows a couple of guys in a mercenary militia as they go to Chronos to fight off the Syndicate, an army funded by the mining coprerations.

    I thought the action was awesome. Good read. 104 pages.

    One dimensional characters in a stilted story that reads like a fifth grade class asignment.
