Meet the Author

I want to write. I want to lose myself in compelling narratives and adventures as they unfold in my mind and spill onto pages which will invariably result in a book by the time I am done.

Writing started for me as a way to pass the time whenever I ran out of reading material or wanted to get rid of excess creative energy (I was an artist specializing in the painting medium (still am).

Before I knew it, I was in love with the new freedom I could find only by putting pen to paper (or rather, fingers to a key-board). I wanted to delineate the characters I had dreamed into existence on a two dimensional surface with 3D fluidity.

I have no idea if I have succeeded in this initial feat, but now I mainly long to see where they will take me to next.

Of course I want much more than that as writing the story is only the first step for me. I want to present my books to the world in a fashion that captures the market for which they were intended. I want intrepid readers to meet the characters I have fallen in love with and perhaps, fall in love with them too.

Dear reader,

please let me know your impressions and thoughts by entering a rating and your opinion after reading my work.

Thanking you in advance,

Chris Adonn

    5 STARS The Eye that See is a prelude to the Balancer Chronicles

    5 STARS
    The Eye that See is a prelude to the Balancer Chronicles. I now want to go and read it. The eyes that see was good and wants you to find out more about their world.
    Its a really fast read. Still the characters are ones you want to find out more about them.
    Adam is young man that broke some rules and caught something on tape that he should not have. Adam is excited because he knows his mentor really wanted to find out about them.
    Fredrick has wanted to know proof of Balancers exist for years, but he is concened that Adam broke the rules and put him in danger. Jonathan Darcy is Fredrick boss and he is mad that the tape exists. He has always lied about them to Fredrick. Now they are all at risk.
    Wolfgang Eriksson is a Balancer who protects humans from the natural world and know one is supposed to know a bout them. He has the choice to take their memories or kill them.
    I am excited to go read more about Balancers in the next book of the series.
    I was given this book from Librarything in exchange of honest reviews.

    Prelude to Legacy gives backstory to main characters and helps the weaving of an underlying conspiracy. You don't need to read this before Legacy but it goes a long way toward explaining some of the main characters reactions to their situations. Nice way to spend and afternoon in the sun

    the eyes that see

    As a preview to the Balancer Chronicles, this definitely left me wanting more. I am hooked by the plot line of the balancers being around to keep the mythical creatures in check. I will definitely be checking out the first novel.

    worth reading...
    Total Pages: 157; Story Pages: 101; free e-book
    This one kinda reminds me of the secret society in Anne Rice's novels (the society that tracked vampires, etc. and kept information on them).
    This was an okay read, but it just wasn't unique enough for me to want to read the rest of the series.
