An immortal race of people called the Xethanti are plagued by an evil criminal underclass known as the PiruNostram.
The civilisations of neighbouring galaxies live in fear for their lives.
Janithillon can put an end to it all, but he has to overcome Nemesis, the PiruNostram’s fiercest gang leader.
His incredible journey will eventually bring him to our world in the present day, where he will meet Magdalene, who has been living and roaming amongst humanity for 2000 years. Together they will change everything we ever knew about ourselves just so they can bring a change to the way of life on their home world.
This amazing story is fraught with hidden dangers and conspiracies from each side of the universe.
If you’ve ever asked yourself ‘What would an alien race make of what we have achieved here on Earth’ or ‘Are we alone in the universe’ then immerse yourself into Visionaries to discover some answers.
Visionaries is part of a planned trilogy of gripping, thought provoking and ingenious novels which invite the reader to explore amazing civilisations which have influenced humanity’s development  as well as reflecting on our failings and weaknesses, affording us all with hope in the face of despair.
Coming in 2018/19 there will be a prequel to Visionaries entitled The Magdalene Years and a sequel to be called Planetary Union.

Five Star Review on Amazon by Amazon Customer

I saw someone post about this book on Twitter so I thought I’d spend a couple of quid and give it a go. I’m not a huge SiFi fan but after reading the description I though it seemed an interesting story. Well what can I say apart from ‘I’m bloody glad I gave it a chance’ ! I finished the whole book after only a couple nights. The story is well paced, and has some excellent characters in it. It’s great to see new writers coming onto the scene and this book just proves there is talent out there. Interesting to see there’s going to be a prequil and a sequel and prequel coming out over the fullness of time. I for one will be buying them. Wishing Mr Donlan the best success wherever he might be.

About the Author

Whilst Chris was studying at a college in Leicester in 1976, he hand wrote a short story, (as you would in those days without a computer that would fit on your table) which had emerged into his mind and that was as far as he got with what was to become a burning ambition nearly 40 years later to turn it into a novel. With the hindsight of life’s experiences and acquired knowledge, together with the benefit of the internet for research purposes, the detail surrounding the core plot of the story has evolved dramatically. Chris would love to see the book turned into a film and hopes that by developing the original piece of work into a planned trilogy, then this might happen in his lifetime. As he says ‘it would make a visually stunning and gripping film, so I hope the likes of Christopher Nolan, Luc Besson or Neill Blomkamp get to hear about the book and are sufficiently inspired to create the movie adaptation. This is his first venture into writing a novel and thus far it’s taken him two years to complete whilst still holding down a full-time job. He is fortunate enough to live in the peaceful and rural North Oxfordshire village of Bucknell and is blessed with a beautiful Daughter, Daisy, who only came along back in 2008 when he was 48. She lives with her Mum in Fairford and he catches up with her on a regular basis. His new partner, Jane, has been the main inspiration for helping him to focus his energy on getting the novel written and published.
