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 program in Greece, for once enjoying normal fun activities – 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. Except that when Tao is around, things have a tendency to get complicated very quickly indeed.

Goodreads URL Read and Discuss The Days of Tao

“I had a fun time with this book and it left me wanting more and more from Chu set in this universe full of ancient aliens. The Days of Tao was long enough to scratch that itch, but too short to completely satisfy me, and now I’m left hanging out for The Rise of Io. If you are a fan of the series I think you will get a real kick out of this book.”
– Ryan Lawler for Fantasy Book Review
