Twin Resolutionsby Donald D. Thompson
Twin Resolutions is book six of The Sol Chronicles. It is the story of Solomon and Sabrina-two mindless twin Satans whom stumble upon a world of reality in the depths of their Saturn world. As they grow up, the scientists of their Subterranean home devise a method for one of the twins to return to the surface and bring them back real information of what is out there.
Sabrina is all for the idea but her brother Solomon has his reservations. Torn between the love he has for his sister, and the love he has for his adopted world, Solomon takes his sister's place and then disaster strikes.
Sabrina and two of her adopted siblings, Rachel and Jeffrey, are determined to go to the surface of their world, find Solomon, and then bring him back. During their search, they make an amazing discovery that could well bring about changes to their very existence.

I just finished reading the Twin Resolutions which is the sixth book in the Sol Chronicles written by Donald Thompson. Each of the books takes the reader on a great adventure with creative characters and fascinating worlds and this book held true to my expectations. I eagerly await the next book in the series.
Twin Resolutions is the sixth book in The Sol Chronicles and introduces a departure from Donald D. Thompson¿s past story-line and direction of text. In the past books of The Sol Chronicles, the story not only jumps from person to person, and tribe to tribe but also planet to planet. In Twin Resolutions, the story takes place on one planet, Saturn, and stays there. The story picks up many years after the arrival of the space ship ARGO arrived following the destruction of Armageddon. The Captain and crew succumbed to the hazard of breathing the tainted atmosphere of Saturn and lost all long term memory. However some must have survived to form the subterranean colony of Solaria, breathing clean air and developing a society close to the one we know today. The Twins, Sabrina and Solomon, stumble on Solaria and their memories start to clear. In a series of events, the Solaria elders become suspicious of them due to their superb intelligence and find that the Twins can communicate telepathically. The Twins then go separate ways of fitting into the society. The elders devise a disastrous plan to explore the surface of Saturn and there is sadness, intrigue and justice when the rescue attempt is discovered and shut down. When the large scale rescue is devised, there is much to learn about the surface and the Satans before converting and rescuing the poisoned people. While the story was well written and the story line was concise, I was disappointed that the story did not tie itself to the other planets and ended kind of blah. The other books of The Sol Chronicles ended with the promise of adventure and exploration of other worlds and the Twin Resolutions ends with an ¿ok, here we are.¿ It seems to me that the intention of Twin Resolutions was to tell a good story and find an end to a strand of the rope which is The Sol Chronicles. If so, Donald has succeeded. I would recommend this book to anyone but would suggest that they read through the series first. I look forward to the next installment.
