Temple of the Sixth (NEXUS Book 2) Kindle Edition

Top Customer Reviews
Temple of the Sixth takes its conflict to a grand, end-of-the-universe scale. The stakes could not be higher. If this mysterious, ancient evil is not stopped, everything will cease to be. But why are these godlike beings so bent on destruction? What can a mere batch of mortals--not all of them heroes--do to stop them? Therein lies the epic conflict that keeps the pages turning.
Although it's classified as "science fiction" due to the nature of its universe--spaceships, aliens, robots, laser guns, and the like--Temple of the Sixth reads more like fantasy, reminiscent of some of the more world-ending story lines featured in comic books such as X-Men. Psychic powers, out-of-dimension locations, higher levels of existence, possession--all is fair game. Bit by bit, Harrison reveals the mythology behind his universe.
There's something satisfying about opening a sequel and hearing familiar voices, reentering a familiar space. Harrison's dry sense of humor illuminates the text with his unique style of storytelling.Read more ›
Luckly, Harrison shows no sign of this with his second offering ToTs, which although slower paced than its predecessor, still runs at a fair old trot.
The story needs to be slower, it's more intricate than the first merging multiple stories into one and building up to ending, which like the first book, is fast and satisfying.
It's well written as we have come to expect from the new kid on the scifi block and like the first has some great twists and turns.
So overall, another great story from a fledgling author who, if he carries on writing books of this quality, is going to end up with the greats.
9/10 Mr Harrison, well done.
