THEIR GOAL IS SIMPLE: TOTAL DOMINATION.
With six arms and jaws that can snap a man in two, the warmongering race of aliens known as the Thule has conquered every planet they’ve attacked.
And now their invasion of Earth has begun.
Humanity’s only hope springs from a mysterious Thule legend about a Betrayer, who they believe will rise up and destroy their people. The American government tried to manufacture their own Betrayer by injecting children with Thule blood but time after time the experiment failed . . . until Colt McAlister.
A decade later, Colt is a 16-year-old cadet at the CHAOS Military Academy where he’s training to defend mankind. But he’s afraid that the alien blood may be turning him into a Thule—and he’s beginning to suspect that fulfilling his role as the Betrayer may cost him everything.
Experience a cosmic battle filled with high-tech gear, gateways to other planets, and ultimate stakes. Not everyone will survive. But heroes will rise up and step into their destiny in this earth-shaking conclusion to the C.H.A.O.S trilogy.

Why George Lucas and My Nana Get Credit for CHAOS
Without George Lucas creating Star Wars. And without my Nana reading me the story of David killing a Philistine giant with a slingshot, the CHAOS Trilogy wouldn’t exist.
I still remember the day I saw Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope in the theatres. I was 5 and my brother, Joshua, was 2. He got sick so we were late and I missed the opening credits. I was heart broken, but it didn’t take me long to get over it. When I saw Darth Vader flanked by Stormtroopers boarding Princess Leah’s ship, I was hooked. George Lucas showed an entire generation that whatever you dream could come true.
I spent all my allowance on collectible Star Wars cards and action figures, and if a company like Wonder Bread ran a Star Wars promotion, I begged my mom to buy it. I had Star Wars sheets and was Darth Vader for Halloween. I even had Darth Vader Underoos (http://theswca.com/images-misc/underoos-esb-darthvader-thermal.jpg).
But Star Wars wasn’t the only story to fuel my imagination. I was small growing up and I came from a small town where people didn’t expect a lot from me. But I had big dreams. Like King David. I spent quite a few summers with my Nana in Austin, Minnesota, and everyday she’d make me lunch and then read me a story. I had three that I liked: Pinocchio, Sampson, and David vs. Goliath, but David was my favorite. There was something about the way he relied on God to accomplish something amazing that resonated with me.
So when I sat down to write the CHAOS trilogy, I called on my two favorite stories: Star Wars and David vs. Goliath. What are the stories that fuel your imagination?
