Book Description

NeXus continues where WildCards left off.
Add to the mix: Nayati: A transplanted Native American gone seriously native to HuteNamid. A young man with his own mission, a mission diametrically opposed to Cantrell's, which puts our Young Hero squarely in the middle.
Rostov-on-Don: A planet distant in space and time, yet intimately linked to HuteNamid.
Eudoxin: a very nasty drug turned weapon in a battle of fundamental beliefs...
And the mystery deepens.
NeXuS is the sequel to WildCards and contains the basic story of the novel UpLink, much expanded and revised for accessibility and to reflect the overall expanded storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling story with complex characters 27 Oct. 2014
By L. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I continue to greatly enjoy this series. The main characters are beautifully complex, well-realized, and thoroughly engaging. They have captured my interest sufficiently that I occasionally want to throw my e-reader across the room in frustration when they do something self-sabotaging, which is high praise for how well Fancher is able to write the complex weave of intellect, emotion, and history going on in each of them. In addition to the excellent characterization, the world building is well-executed and believable and the pacing sufficient to keep one reading well past one's bedtime. I only wish all of the books in the series were out already, because it's going to be tough to wait to find out how everything works out.

One note-- this is NOT one of those series you can easily pick up in the middle. Go back and start with the two prequels, then read in order. There are details from early books that come back, and having an understanding of the context makes for a much better story.
3.0 out of 5 stars part of a four part story arc 23 Jun. 2014
By Carol Gold - Published on Amazon.com

Fancher is capable of writing a griping story. At times I was frantically paging through, unable to put the story down. Unfortunately, however, one really needs to read all four parts (or five, since the first book has been divided into two parts) to find out what happens, how the story is resolved. Unlike a print copy, one can not just check the end of the story in a bookstore or library. These books are only available online and each book costs $10, making the charge $40 for the entire sequence. I wish I'd known that before I started investing in the series. The first two parts of book one really are the same book, split in half. Books two and three are also one story, the third book starting immediately after the second, which doesn't really come to an end or resolution. The end of the third book (NeXus) does seem to mark a stopping place and most of the issues have been resolved. Otherwise, it truly is one long story arc, not the same characters in different situations, but one long stretched out situation. The main character, Steve Ridenour, has so many twists to his character that the only thing that kept me following him was the fact that the other characters in the story seemed as puzzled about him as I was. I'm not sure I understand him completely after two books, but that of course mirrors real life, where we rarely completely understand other people.

Fancher is capable of really good, exciting, griping writing -- when she lets herself tell the story. At times she gets bogged down in pedagogically explaining things to the reader, which can slow up the story.

I still haven't decided whether or not I will purchase the final book in the series. There are a couple of sympathetic characters, but I think $10 is a bit steep, and I'm not sure I can suffer through more of Steven's agonies.
5.0 out of 5 stars Meaty middle: rich plot and character fill this excellent revamp of UpLink. 6 Jan. 2014
By skk - Published on Amazon.com
'Netwalkers is an excellent series, and book 3 is no exception. This used to be UpLink, a book 2 sequel to GroundTies, but the series has been revamped from the ground up and this is book 3 in a six-book arc (confusingly book 1 is being sold in two parts due to length and to put a beginning at a better price-point).

Nexus starts just a few days after WildCards ends. Admiral Cantrell, representing the ComNet Alliance government is still trying to negotiate with HuteNamid's planetary government so that the 'Net discrepancies she and the spaceship Cetacean were sent to investigate don't escalate into further violence, the type of violence that has wiped out entire planetary colonies. Stephen Ridenour, recovering from injuries ship-side, is nominally sidelined from the investigation, but with a hidden past unraveling, full of secrets kept behind deep security walls, and a mind that will not stop asking, he won't stay out long. Unfortunately a change-agent is ready to put a spanner in the works. Nayati, a passionate young man with access to alien technology is ready for negotiations to be over and rebellion to begin, and he has keys to a power that the ComNet Alliance has no idea exists.

The 'Netwalkers series is character driven, and if you've read this far you care about the characters. Stephen, with no certainty of a future, a wounded past, and full of the secret of at least why one planetary colony was destroyed, a secret he has been forced to not-remember through conditioning on two fronts, conditioning in conflict with each other and on the point of break-down, conditioning he will use any tools on-hand, even those that hurt him, to break through. Wesley is playing his own shell-game of principals and trying to navigate his own way through a mine-field of secrets, some of which are his own. Cantrel, whose integrity pushes her to work toward a future she both hopes and fears for, is up against something she's never encountered before, and having to balance people she has come to care for against the security of society as a whole, a security she is sworn to protect.

The prose is lyrical and the dialog snappy. The pace is lively with both introspective and physical action. There is no saggy middle in these books. This book depends on the one that came before and leads directly to the one after. I would not recommend reading this as a stand-alone novel. The story is fun, with moments of adventure and whimsy, but you would be confused as to why people were doing the things they are doing. For a review of the series so far as a whole, see my review of WildCards - 'Netwalkers II. Try a sample. Get hooked. Become a fan.
