Cameron Tan wouldn’t have even been in Greece if he hadn’t gotten a ‘D’ in Art History.
Instead of spending the summer after college completing his training as a Prophus operative, he’s doing a study abroad program in Greece, enjoying a normal life – spending time with friends and getting teased about his crush on a classmate.
Then the emergency notification comes in: a Prophus agent with vital information needs immediate extraction, and Cameron is the only agent on the ground, responsible for getting the other agent and data out of the country. The Prophus are relying on him to uncomplicate things.
Easy, except the rival Genjix have declared all-out war against the Prophus, which means Greece is about to be a very dangerous place. And the agent isn’t the only person relying on Cameron to get them safely out of the country – his friends from the study abroad program are, too. Cameron knows a good agent would leave them to fend for themselves. He also knows a good person wouldn’t. Suddenly, things aren’t easy at all.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Days of Tao is an excellent addition to the Tao series of books. Much like his previous books set in this world, the story is engaging and captured my attention right away. Wes' ability to keep you in suspense, keep you reading is unmatched. The pacing is superb, not too fast and not too slow. As an avid reader (and fellow writer), it's rare anymore that I find a book I literally can't put down. Wes did not disappoint in this regard..
A couple issues I do have with this novella (and they are minor) are as follows. The story ends much too quickly. I'll be anxiously watching for the followup novel (or novella), but I want to strangle Wes for making me wait. I also have to acknowledge that if you haven't read the previous three book series, you might not completely understand what's at stake or what's going on. For the most part it's clear, but there is the possibility that some readers might miss the significance of some of the details. At the end of the day however, it...
This is NOT a novel. I thought the % indicator on my kindle was bugged but then it was just over. Took an hour or so to read. It's a good short story or novella but it really felt like Chu phoned it in here; I would have liked him to explore the world in more depth and include more content in this story. To bill it as a novel is just nonsense.
The writing was classic Wesley Chu, but because it was billed as a novel, I didn't check the page count. I thought my Kindle had malfunctioned when the book just abruptly stopped. Turns out, this 'novel' was only 120 pages. Poorly done, Mr. Chu. Poorly done. Next time, call it a novella so your loyal readers know what to expect.
