Child of Chaos, The Chesan Legacy Series, Book One, was released on December 15, 2015. Pre-publication readers had this to say:
“Child of Chaos was a great read by an up and coming Sci-Fi writer. It contains interesting characters and a great heroine. I wanted to start reading the next one in the series to see what happened next!”
Suzy Davies, Ph.D.
“The author weaves a fascinating, exciting and moving saga of the future of the universe in this gripping story. Her use of precise detail makes her suspense scenes almost unbearable! You won’t be able to put this one down.”
“Child of Chaos is an amazing adventure that opens your mind to several new exciting worlds. There is action, adventure, a hint of romance, and unbreakable bonds of loyalty. I found myself fighting along side Tridia for survival and desperately seeking answers from her blocked memory. There are so many twists and turns, I was left wanting more. I can’t wait for book two.”
“I couldn’t stop once I started – I read the whole book in two days. I can’t wait for the next one so I can find out what happens with Drayden.”
“Great read! Multiple plots, multiple characters with mysterious history. Lots of action. Can’t wait for the next one!”
Judge Steven Lee

“I am a huge fan of the genre and I have always gotten grief from friends for the amount of time I spend reading science fiction. I don’t mind, though, especially when the quality is good, and I can say that your first venture into this is very good! I went through this probably in three days, and found that I was waiting to see what was going to happen with Tridia and everyone else. The flow of the story and the timeline was very well done and kept my interest. I even liked some of the twists and turns. In short, I’m looking forward to the next book in the series and, while I’m not an expert by any means in writing, I think you’re very talented.”

First, a disclosure: I am a former work colleague of Ms. Williams and had the privilege of proofing the book while in final draft form and again just before publication. That said, I found the writing to be excellent, with very good character development and great attention to detail in the story line. Her prose painted for me a vivid picture of the settings and the characters, to the point that I could easily envision each scene in my mind’s eye. I particularly liked the inclusion of a prologue which set the stage quite nicely without revealing all about the major characters. And the book ends on a note that has me eager to read the next segment of the story; there is still much to be resolved.
There are perhaps more characters here than are usually found in science fiction writing – early on I considered jotting down notes. Still, Ms. Williams can be said to be in good company on this account; I’m probably not the only person initially confused by Tolkien’s characters Sauron and Saruman!
