Product Description

“Lee has an intense brand of storytelling….[He’s] the real deal.”
 Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Jefferson Key

Patrick Lee’s extraordinary Breach trilogy comes to an explosive and breathtaking conclusion with Deep Sky—as Travis Chase of the ultra-secret government agency Tangent finally comes face to face with the decision that could determine the ultimate fate of the world. With The Breach, Ghost Country, and now Deep Sky, Patrick Lee has established himself as a major voice in the thriller genre, combining ingenious scenarios with non-stop action and X-Files-like strangeness. His electrifying fiction has earned exuberant praise from a host of New York Times bestselling masters of suspense (“Audacious and terrifying” —Lee Child, “Brilliant…Pure exhilaration from the first page to the last” —James Rollins, “WOW! Double Wow!...Makes Tom Clancy look like the slowest child in the class.” —Stephen Coonts). Everything ends here…and there is nowhere on Earth to hide.

From the Back Cover

The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret.

But there is another secret even less known . . . and far more terrifying.

As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.”

Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent—caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders—along with partner and lover Paige Campbell and technology expert Bethany Stewart, have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery once spoken of in terrified whispers by the long since silenced. But their breakneck race cross-country—and back through time and malleable memory—is calling the total destructive might of a shadow government down upon them. For Travis Chase has a dark destiny he cannot be allowed to fulfill . . .

Years ago the scientific experiment testing the new Collider ended in disaster,destroying the equipment and killing scientists but opening the one-way Portal into unknown.
Whether that Portal is the door through time or dimensions nobody knows but strange artifacts with either magic or lethal properties begin to drop through it.

The group named Tangent is set up to study the mystery of that Breach.
That group is joined by ordinary man,ex-convict Travis Chase,who has nothing to do with science,or so it seems at the beginning,but then it becomes clear that Travis Chase is the key figure in discovering the secret of the Portal and his involvement has been preordained.

Deep Sky is the third and final book in the brilliant saga and I strongly recommend to read all three books in order to follow up and understand better the complicated and fascinating story of changing realities,time travel and doors between worlds.

I enjoyed every twist and turn of those books and though the end of the Deep Sky somehow disappointed me,the story on the whole is pure joy and pleasure to read.

The Breach Trilogy is a sci-fi gem.
*Warning: The Breach Trilogy should be read in the order the 3 books were published, this will enhance reading pleasure and comprehension. The 3 novels are NOT stand alone reads—IMHO.
Patrick Lee’s science fiction Breach trilogy is a terrific sci-fi thriller. The first novel, The Breach, begins the saga with Travis and Paige when an ion experiment goes terribly wrong bringing about the breach, a tear in the earth’s space time continuum, into existence. The breach anomaly is studied and slowly became understood as strange items/devices known as “entities” periodically came through the breach from the “other side”—the future or maybe the long distant past?. The human condition as such, one man attempted to control the breach but ultimately he failed ending the first book.
The second installment of The Breach trilogy is Ghost Country and centers on an “entity” from the future/past that allows people to transit the breach into the future and return. This part of the sage chiefly deals with time travel and the dangers therein when the wrong people gain control of the time travel devices sent through the breach to the present. Their altruism, bordering on insanity, resulted in a terrible future of death and destruction before they themselves were eliminated by Travis and Paige.
The third and concluding Breach trilogy novel is entitled Deep Sky and it is a blockbuster gem. It successfully ties together the entire Breach trilogy with a dynamite conclusion that answers ALL nagging questions. What a tremendous literary accomplishment. My only negative comment is I was sad to see it all end and hope, like Star Trek or Star Wars, the journey would/could continue!
Character development was superb and kept all three books fresh and entertaining. The two main protagonists, Travis and Paige, evolved through all 3 novels in a very engaging way keeping the saga both interesting and engaging.
No gratuitous sex, language or violence. Great sci-fi writing and interesting time travel dilemmas and conundrums discussed.
I have now read all of Patrick Lee’s science fiction books and can say he is definitely at the top of the sci-fi genre. All are clean, crisp believable stories that pay attention to detail with no over-the-top literary hyperbole. Main characters grow and yes some die but hey that makes for real life suspense. The time travel aspects are handled realistically, as can be hypothetically surmised, and greatly enhance the overarching futurist storyline. Well done Patrick Lee, Well Done, and I am eagerly looking forward to you next book after Signal—5+ stars!
NOTE: To Repeat, it would greatly enhance the viewer’s reading pleasure and comprehension to read the Breach trilogy novels in order. In my estimation none of the novels are stand alone reads. Hence my using the same review for all three books.

Having just re-read all three books, I felt compelled to write this review, finally. Firstly, as others have said,you must read all three books, and in order. They come from an amazing imagination! For someone who had never enjoyed science fiction, these books got me hooked on it. These books are just all round top notch. The characters, the ''entities'', the overall storylines, and of course...the conundrum at the conclusion. I was pleased to have tied up why the dual messages had been sent (though we had an inkling, the specifics were made clear). It''s taken me a long time to stew on the conclusion. And I''m also very curious as to what side of the decision others would come down on. Travis'' inferred eventual decision, or Paige''s which must have been the opposite. I personally think if it was my decision to make, I''d go Travis'' route. You will understand all of that when you have finished the books ;). I know The Breach is now being made into a movie! I''m extremely excited about that! I will also always wish, even if hopelessly, that one day the story might continue.

As several others have mentioned, you must read all three in order for this book to make sense. On the flip side of this, they are pretty fast reads in general.

Now to the nitty gritty: This is some of the better hard sci-fi that I''ve read in the last few years. It is hard science fiction, meaning that the book plots are fundamentally revolving around the science aspect, rather that the ''science'' being a thinly veiled cover for a standard thriller plot.

The premise is novel in that it isn''t simply the discovery of an alien artifact which centers the plot rather it is a steady stream of artifacts whose use, source, and purpose are indeterminable. What IS novel is how Mr. Lee invokes this premise and uses it to build a fast paced, intriguing, and compelling world set right around our contemporary milieu yet completely and utterly overshadowed by the fantastic artifacts and their mysterious origin.

The books were well edited, and the author does a good job of not tiring out the reader with an overuse of catch phrases and cliches.

The final book - and so ultimately the series - is a contradiction. It has one of the best and most unexpected plot twists I''ve come across in a long time among the hundreds of works I''ve read. I also find the staging for the ending to be well done, which (unlike some of the reviewers) I very much liked. I came away with that indefinable eerie sensation you get after watching some of the better early Twilight Zone episodes. It left me feeling introspectively discomfited and pondering what I would do. It caused me me to be vaguely dissatisfied in that everything wasn''t perfectly wrapped up. That isn''t a bad thing as I found myself speculating on the future of the world he created, wondering "what if?". I suppose the dissatisfaction comes from being conditioned by the mass produced, churned out slop that is most sci-fi and the way they feel they have to spoon feed us the finish.

Patrick Lee isn''t a Bradbury or Asimov (yet), as he lacks the breadth of scope and underlying foundational insight into the human (and alien) psyche, but he is definitely an excellent read and well worth the purchase. I''m eagerly waiting for additional works, and as he matures as a science fiction writer I see strong potential for future works to be top shelf sci-fi classics.

I would certainly recommend this series be added to the collection of any science fiction library from the casual reader to the hard-core collector.

This was my first book by Lee. His writing style moves the story along at a break-neck pace. This is good, in a way, as the story is well plotted and I did not feel liked I suffered for not having read the previous books in this series.

If plotting and tying complex elements together are Lees'' strong points as a story-teller, whats suffers a bit is his development of the main characters- Travis Chase and Paige Campbell. I would definitely like to know more about Chase. He is a hero/anti-hero type of character who should have a rich history that would sharpen the reading experience to learn.

None-the-less, Lee provides some neat twists on the old worm hole through space saga and his take on alien development is refreshing as well.

I am a little surprised at this being trllogy. Lee leaves us with kind of a cliff-hanger at the end involving Chase and future of humanity. I dont think the reading public will leave this alone and I expect Lee to be besieged by fans to close this last chapter in a new book, at some point.

I give this four stars on the thinness of the characters, but could easily go to 4.5 if that option was available.

A strong tale by a talented writer. You wont be able to put this down.

This is a decent read, and definitely keeps you turning the pages. There were a few plot holes and at one point I felt the author did something totally unfair (i.e. the final tap). However if you have read the first book, you really want to read this one, if only for the resolution. I wasn''t a huge fan of Ghost Country, and feel this book treads heavily on the same themes in more satisfying ways.

The ending leaves what I feel may have been an unintended moral dilemma in place of what was supposed to be an intentional moral dilemma. Since my experience with this author is limited to these three books, it is difficult for me to tell what he was really trying to do here. I will summarize my concern with "Why does every solution involve killing a lot of people?" This may have indeed been his point and a criticism of utilitarian or even collectivist thinking, but after three books of nonstop murder and mayhem, where people being killed was a solution to a problem, I''m really not sure.

I really enjoyed the first two books in the series and this one was not bad by any means. It has some neat sci-fi elements that we all know and love but at times it seemed like they took the things that worked well in the first two books and used them again. Some of the book is very predictable and not as creative as I think this author has the potential to be. Overall I am glad I read it. If you read the first two books you will most likely enjoy this final piece of the trilogy.

**SPOILER ALERT**

The basic story follows Travis, Paige, and Bethany again. They discover some "new" elements to Tangent and the American government including a cover-up that Paige''s father put into place. Upon further research they are involved in a conspiracy of "Galactic" proportions. At the end of the day, Travis as to make a weighted decision that no one man should have to endure. The author leaves you hanging with lots of questions but with plenty to think about. If you read this book be sure to actually look of the part about the last Civil War Vet. It''s surprising and very interesting.

I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books. They carry you along with their story and welcome you in. The ''''characters'' very quickly become ''people'' and you join in their life, adventures, decisions and experiences. The writing is straightforward and consistent but most of all believable. It raises questions about how we will end our time here on Earth, will we simply become extinct or, more likely, hasten our own end with some desperate to be the ones to survive at any cost. I enjoyed the hypotheses and found them logical, if not readily understandable! All 3 books are stories to savour and digest and I was sorry to get to the very unexpected finale - I certainly didn''t see it coming! Start with book number 1, none of them are too techie or outlandish to enjoy and get into, the story will then simply take you by the hand and take you with it to the end. Enjoy - I did :)

As this is the final volume in Lee''s ''Breach'' trilogy, I can''t say too much about this book without the likelihood of spoiling the previous two. Suffice to say that, after an attack on the White House, Chase and Tangent suddenly find themselves in grave danger because the perpetrators believe they have information crucial to the future - and which might contain the answers to the mystery of the Breach. The first two books set up a phenomenal pace and Deep Sky follows it through. It is exciting, has a small but well-developed cast of characters, and is extremely easy to read. There were times when it stopped me dead in my tracks with twists that called into question everything I''d just read. Lee ratchets up the tension brilliantly as the characters race against time, and calls on riddles from the first two books that pay-off well. It''s a decent thriller, the science fiction element works reasonably well, and it has a surprisingly thought-provoking and downbeat ending which answered nearly all my questions and yet left me wanting to know more. The plot probably doesn''t stand up to close examination, so I''d definitely class it as one of those books where you might want to put your brain in neutral and just go along for the ride.
