I bought Betraying Nexus because I had read the Pheonix Conspiracy and I was tired of waiting for the sequel - I wish I hadn't bothered.

Sadly the quality of writing and plot that I enjoyed in the Pheonix Conspiracy was not evident in Betraying Nexus. This felt like a story written by a teenager, the characters were two-dimensional and not very believable. Now I come to think about it the way to 'betray Nexus' doesn't really stand up - I don't want to give the plot away to anyone who buys this so I won't say any more.

Come on Richard, stop writing short stories and give us the sequel to the Pheonix Conspiracy - that was a good book that I really enjoyed.

This is a short story of around 700 locations taking round an hour or two to read. It is well written, appears to be proffesionally edited, and the story is original and intriguing. Because it is so short the scope for development is limited and this is the only complaint I have against it, that along with the price for such a short piece.

Much as I love my Kindle, its advent has seen a proliferation of books being made available that would never otherwise have seen the light of day. It is true that on occasion this has meant that a little diamond has appeared. But for every rare diamond there is an absolute deluge of bland, uninspired and uninspiring novels to wade through. This is only a short story, but I am afraid it still falls into the latter category. One would hope with a short story you aim to grip from the outset, to not waste a single world carving out your narrative in a very disciplined and controlled way. I found myself skim reading this after a few pages, which some may argue disqualifies me from leaving a review. But skim reading means that I failed to be gripped. It joins the ranks of very mediocre, self published science fiction which is all too abundant on Kindle.

This is a novella of around thirty pages, the main character becomes disillusioned about nexus, he has given his life to this secret corporation, but things he sees happening don't sit well with him.
He decides to destroy this machine that gives people mental abilities to control or kill people, even if it means he must die to succeed.
This is a stand alone read with a beginning, a middle and an ending, nothing really new in this story as far as I am concerned, with no surprises either.
A good short read.

I downloaded this having recently finished the authors other book, The Phoenix Rising (The Phoenix Conspiracy Series).

This is a very short story which you can get through quickly. Very enjoyable, and shares a similar idea to that of the Green Lantern, i.e. imagine things to use against people or for defense.

I wont say more other than if you enjoyed his other books you should give this one a read as well.

This is one of the most engaging short stories I have read recently - I got through it in one evening as it drew me in entirely and I was itching to reach the conclusion. Although I also feel that a full length novel could have been written about the nefarious activities of Nexus however I thoroughly enjoyed the story as it stands. Richard Sanders novel Phoenix Conspiracy, also available on Amazon, is also packed with intrigue and well worth a read. Hope to see more from this author very soon as he is fast becoming one of my favourites :)

An interesting premise that could have made a very interesting novel. This story line would have benefited from background development of what Nexus actually did - a case history or two suggesting successful operations of some kind and the slow disillusionment of the main character.
Still worth the purchase.

It is easy to be critical of a book that is free, it seems people can be harsher on them and have higher expectations than when they purchase one. I think its all down to expecting a certain level of proof reading and mistake correcting.

This book doesn't let you down on that front and reads nice and smoothly. It is short but that's no bad thing. This is an engaging book with a nice idea that lets you have a sit down, block out the noise of a commuter train and immerse yourself.

It isn't Phoenix Conspiracy but I think it unfair to compare the two. This book does manage to stand on its own two feet.
