Product Description

Product Description

Telisa Relachik studied to be a xenoarchaeologist at a time when humans had found alien artifacts but hadn't encountered live aliens. She joins a group of artifact smugglers and ends up with a life more amazing than she could have imagined.

Upon learning that the unifying Terran government has been infiltrated by Trilisks, Telisa is galvanized to face the task she’s been afraid to undertake: defeat the Space Force and topple the rotten leadership of Earth.

The Trilisk Revolution is the fifth book in the PIT series.

1.0 out of 5 stars bills to pay? 15 Jun 2014
By Bankops
Format:Kindle Edition
First books of the series were enjoyable. This one was written like the author had bills to pay quickly. Short, superficial & too busy changing focus to involve the reader. Left me feeling cheated.

3.0 out of 5 stars I loved this series. 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have given this 3 as I was so into the PIT team + one alien (Shiny). The book was very short, but the price was not! My main issues (but it's part if the story, and hinted at) was the twist, I liked this mixed team, so the twist left me feeling a great lose..... I am unsure if I will buy the next. But that's okay, the story gripped me so well, the shockwave is all that's left.,.for now!

2.0 out of 5 stars Let down... 11 Feb 2014

Bit of a let down compared to the first books in series.
Still written well but storyline and characters have lost their flare.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah... so that happened 27 Dec 2013
By Nonsense - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Here’s the basic spoiler free rundown: I would say it has more of a 3.5 rather than 4 stars because it felt like it ran a little short and with so many story lines going on, character development and intrigue got lost and left me simply confused. For example: I was interested in the place Imanol went for his mission and felt more could have been explored there and there could have been more development for Siobhan in her plot line, I would have liked to see her talk to her enemy or something.
The ending certainly left me hanging, but I liked it. Is this the end? Is there going to be anymore? Who knows… only the author.


My thoughts on the characters:
Telisa: Needs an eye patch like a pirate. Then PIT can stand for Pirate Interstellar Travels.
Shiny: What the hell, man?!
Caden: Blech
Cilreth: She’s fine.
Imanol: I like him. I don’t care if he’s supposed to be a dick.
Siobhan: Good unless she was around or thinking about Caden.
Maxsym: Who are you?
Krellis: He was mentioned in one chapter. By far the most intricate and developed character of whom will become a fictional icon alongside Atticus Finch and Macbeth.
Cilreth2: She got awesome when during her encounter with Nell when she decided she was Uma Thurman from Kill Bill.
Telisa3: Wait.
Caden2: What?
Imanol2: But how did…But why?
Jason Yang: Welcome to the club, Token Asian

Thoughts on relationships:
Cilreth and Cilreth2: Brings up some interesting ethical questions. Is it incest or because they are the same person; masturbation? If masturbation, is it legal for identical twins to have sex because genetically, they are the same person?... Does the author just really like the idea of two identical women making out?
Caden and Siobhan: About as awkward as Johnny and Lisa’s relationship in Tommy Wisaeu’s the Room. It’s out of nowhere, it doesn't need to be there and I don’t like it. There is no universe in which those two make sense together because A) Caden is annoying and B) Caden is super annoying. I dislike Siobhan becomes a shy flirtatious schoolgirl around him when I thought she was supposed to be a daredevil. Maybe she’s tries to come off as a daredevil because on the inside she’s terrified… but no. Also, where the hell did this relationship come from and why? We see them together in one chapter, they think about each other and then for the rest of the book it is never mentioned.
Telisa and Magnus4: This, if the story continues, is going to be interesting. Telisa will have to come to the realisation that her Magnus, the one she loved, is dead and gone even if he has a clone. It’s like dating the twin of someone you loved who died (save the fact he shares the original Magnus’ memories… but a computer can just as equally have his memories and it’s still not him). I don’t know if the author just intends to keep them together and act like it used to be, or if Telisa will come to understand that she cannot replace the original with a replica. I’d be interested in seeing how it is handled, that’s a plotline in its own.

Thoughts on plot:
A bit shambled and too short, but I did really enjoy the ending and the build-up to it. The ending makes it so that this could be a really depressing ending to a series or an exciting anxiety-inducing cliff-hanger for the next book. I don’t know where the story would go, but I’d sure like to find out.
In the end I do not think this book is on the same level as the previous ones, but it is great setup for another book with its ending. I’d like to read more of these books, but I also understand if it ends here. The ending may not satisfy all, but I love movies like Terry Gilliam’s Brazil so, you know, I’m used to weird twisted endings.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit confused and dissapointed 25 April 2014
By Sandra Sartor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have loved the series so far, but I feel a bit let down. The characters aren't as likable or relatable as they were in the first 2 or 3 books, and the ending seems unresolved, depressing, and destructive to the overall story. In the first few books, Telisa is a scientist, interested in discovery, forced to strengthen and arm herself by the danger of exploration...but by this point she seems to have lost all that. For some reason, her crusade to save the world felt wrong; the Trilisks were not consistent with what we have seen so far…and even if that is planned as an additional plot twist, the characters should have been sharp enough to notice it. They almost seemed to switch places, with suddenly all-powerful heroes hunting down the suddenly weak Trilisks before losing it all because they were so short-sided (which is not a believable weakness for a group of scientists). I would say that the sires has fallen victim to classic spectacle creep because every book has to be bigger, twist harder, and overcome more…but in this case that really wasn’t necessary. Survival and curiosity alone would have done a much better job of driving the story. It is not a particularly bad book, but I felt disappointed.
