Interview with the Author
Q - What makes The Pandora Chronicles so unique?
A - The Pandora Chronicles is primarily an action-adventure thriller series, with elements of science fiction sprinkled around.
The story primarily follows archeologist Nick Solomon as he hunts for clues to a mysterious location that houses a legendary artifact with mysterious powers. Along the journey he gets roped into helping a secret underground government agency and meets Agent Excalibur, a secret agent from Nick's past.
Throughout the course of the adventure Nick explores his own past, his upbringing in a bizarre cult, as well as something that makes him special - something not quite human...
Q - What inspired you to create The Pandora Chronicles?
A - Each of the parts in the book take place in a different time. The Prologue, where the aliens show up to witness the birth of the planet, was inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary.
Part 1 of the story tells the story of Captain Jack Finnegan, a privateer turned pirate, and that was inspired by my own love of pirates (who doesn't love pirates) and my university thesis.
Part 2, the main adventure, was inspired by Assassins Creed and Uncharted, as well as Tomb Raider, The Librarian, and of course, Indiana Jones. I think of Nick Solomon as a mix of all those, but with a larger ego, a dapper sense of fashion and more prone to sarcasm.
Q - Can we get more?
A - Sure you can! There are at least 5 books in series but while you wait for the next one, you should check out the link above or in brackets here (http://eepurl.com/bHSkSf) and sign up to my exclusive mailing list. You'll get TWO character profiles, one for Nick Solomon and Agent Excalibur respectively, and get to read all about their individual pasts.
In addition you'll also get TWO full-lenght novels, the first books of my other two series, Legacy and Evil Plan Inc.
Thanks for reading!

This was a first for me. I was contacted by the author's PA and asked if I'd like to read the book. Now, I like quite a wide variety of books, as anyone who reads my blog will already know, and they synopsis of this one definitely appealed! I have to say the book well and truly lived up to my high expectations of it and I am very pleased to have had this brilliant book brought to my attention. The book starts by giving the background involving an alien species visiting earth millions of years ago and leaving their legacy in the DNA of certain humans - the Select. The story then goes on to follow one of these Select humans - Captain Jack Finnegan. It relates how, in the eighteenth Century, he finds out about his heritage and his fantastic adventures as a privateer as he learns about his extraordinary skills and abilities as he travels in search of a relic from those earlier visitors.Swashbuckling pirates, jungles, attacking natives, you name it, he probably encounters it! Very lively, entertainingly described and great reading. You sort of assume that that'll be the end but no - the next Select you meet in Part Two is Nick Solomon and get ready for another roller coaster round of adventures with more twists and turns, definitely a great mix of historical, adventure and science fiction linked seamlessly together in a book I have no hesitation in highly recommending! Many thanks to Ryan and his team - I'm watching out for the sequel already!
