Product Description

Product Description

Myth tells us that the cradle of civilisation was created and nurtured by the gods. History tells us that mankind developed along its own path, and that many ancient kings believed themselves to be gods and were revered as such.

But what if the truth were something in between?

This is the reality that master thief Greg Cross now finds himself facing. What started out as a simple job for a trusted associate has quickly spiralled into a race to uncover secrets hidden since the dawn of civilisation. A race between those who seek the truth in order to take the next step in mankind’s destiny, and those who wish to claim it for their own and use it to rebuild an empire lost to them millennia ago. It is a mission that Greg cannot deny his role in; because he now possesses an ancient power that is the key to unlocking the secret of the Nexus.

Allied with those who have fought all their lives to find and protect the truth, Greg must now learn to accept what he has become if he is to master it and survive the trials to come. For although he now embodies a potential seen in man long ago, his is not the only secret of the past to have resurfaced...

5.0 out of 5 stars Adventurous Tale 24 May 2012
By GlenR
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like adventure stories, you'll love this! Christopher Moore takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of ancient religions, fist fights and secret identities. It didn't take long to finish this one, because I couldn't stop reading it!

There's plenty of humour and a straight forward narative that takes you half way around the world and back again. The comic book style cannot be ignored and makes for a fun tale of goodies and baddies in this fast paced novel.

Very much a bargain too! Can't wait for the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rip-roaring fun 7 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I ploughed through this book in no time at all, which is a great testimony on its own: the book kept - no, compelled - my attention from beginning to end. I'm not going to describe it in detail. There are too many plot turns, and I'd hate to spoil surprises.

If I described it as a crossover between historical mystery, supernatural thriller and superhero novel, that would sound corny. It's all of these things, but they're bound together masterfully in a story that hurtles the reader from twist to twist, sharing the confusion of the narrator as his world collapses and reforms around him, again and again.

Just buy it. Read it. The Kindle version's not expensive, and far more than worth the price.

I can't wait for more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great multi-genre adventure. 27 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great adventure story, that manages to add several twists and turns as it moves from one genre to another, almost seamlessly, until ending up firmly in Dan Brown's territory, albeit using religion from a much earlier time. Yet, unlike Mr Brown's most recent efforts, manages to include global travel without sounding like a travel or history guide.

Containing great complex characters, there would seem to be plenty of room for a sequel although I'd settle just from hearing more about the earlier exploits of 'highwire'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting! 24 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book, a bit different from the other "ancient relic" adventures.

Could have done with a bit better proofreading though, judging by the errors that kept appearing.

I'll certainly read the next one whenever it's published.

An OK read but it didn't "grab me"......there are many books of a similar vein around. That said a good read to pass the time

Batman meets Spiderman.What a load of drivel.Don't waste your time or money.How anybody can write this utter garbage is beyond me.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit too far-fetched
A series of pre-diluvian tablets which confer superpowers? Do me a favour! Far from the best of an overcrowded genre...

3.0 out of 5 stars Secret of the Nexus
I found the plot was rather complex and I wasn't always sure where it was going. I read it to the end , but it wasn't one of my most satisfying reads
