Chiral Justice: A Hard Science Fiction Technothriller is the third book in The Biogenesis War by L.L. Richman, a tale that bears the author’s trademark for exceptional storytelling. Asher Dent, the new Akkadian premier, cannot be trusted. He believes in the strength of his army, especially the secret police. When an Akkadian assassin helps in brokering peace between the star nations and the alliance, Micah Case has reason to be suspicious about the peace. More so because Clint Janus has vanished and he has a secret that can cripple the alliance and the secret is about Micah. It is now up to Micah Case and Task Force Blue to stop Dent from orchestrating his plan for total supremacy over the star nations.

Reading Chiral Justice feels like watching a science fiction movie starring Tom Cruise. The action is exhilarating and the technology takes the imaginative nature of the tale up a notch. L.L. Richman proves to be a master at creating page-turning narratives with a lot of intrigue, characters that are phenomenal and fully drawn, and conflict that takes the plot in unexpected directions and with angles the reader won’t even consider. The writing is, as usual, excellent, filled with strong descriptions and vivid imagery. Chiral Justice is the kind of technothriller that will transport fans of the genre to a future world dominated by the thirst for power and the strength of military technology. The way the interplanetary world is written will have anyone rooting for L.L. Richman’s work.

In this third installment in the Biogenesis War series, L.L. Richman reproduces his spell on readers by crafting a story that is transporting and creating characters that will stay in the reader’s mind long after they have put down the story. Chiral Justice: A Hard Science Fiction Technothriller introduces a new kind of conflict. Thanks to a ruthless Akkadian assassin, a semblance of peace is made between the Star nation and the Alliance. This should have been good news for Micah and everyone in Task Force Blue, but they all know that something worse is about to happen because Clint Janus is missing and he carries with him one of the biggest secrets of the Alliance. The Premier of Akkadia, Asher Dent, is an ambitious man with plans to dominate the worlds and having ties with Janus is something to worry about. Can Micah and the Task Force Blue stop Asher?

This story is intricately plotted and features a conflict that escalates pretty fast, building up into an explosive denouement. The characters are, as usual, compelling and multidimensional, and I enjoyed the way that Micah Case is written. He has always been unfathomable. In the previous entry, he was the only one who could survive the viral weapon of the Akkadian. Now, he has a secret that even Asher never knew about. The writing is top-notch, filled with terrific descriptions and beautifully written dialogues. The action is pulsating, taking readers on an adventure through well-imagined and carefully executed worlds. Chiral Justice left me satisfied and wanting more of L.L. Richman’s stories. Biogenesis War series will give fans of science fiction an unforgettable reading experience.

Chiral Justice: A Hard Science Fiction Technothriller is the third novel in The Biogenesis War series by L.L. Richman. The battle never ends, and it seems like Micah is in for another dangerous war to face. Clint Janus’s disappearance was a massive blow for Micah and Task Force Blue. However, nothing could have prepared them for what was about to come next. It seems like Janus has forged an allegiance with an old enemy who has made it his mission to destroy humanity or preside over it until the end of days. The only problem is, Micah will not let that happen. He will do everything he can to empower Task Force Blue and stop the chaos before it even begins. But is it really in his power? What will he do if his secret is exposed? Can he trust anyone if he cannot trust Janus?

What a brilliant end to the series! The camaraderie between Micah and Task Force Blue is brilliant. They work together like a well-oiled machine. Each member fits with the other so well. They each have a role to play, and they are not afraid of taking chances. The author introduces conflict at just the right time. Asher Dent is calculating and cunning, something that is easy to hate but not easy to predict. While the narrative is still magical, I love how the author opens new avenues for future novels with this last book in the series. I am very interested in the Assassin’s story or what will happen next to Cyr. Both of them are solid characters who have a lot of potential. Their arcs are dynamic, and they fit the tone of the story well. Of course, Micah’s development and his core presence in the story are very satisfactory. He changes, develops, and blossoms with the story, and I don’t think I can give him higher praise. Kudos to the author for writing a brilliant series. It exceeded my expectations!
