Product Description

About the Author

Ross Harrison has been writing since childhood without thought of publication. When the idea was planted by his grandmother to do so, it grew rapidly, and after a bumpy ten years or so, here sits the fruit.

Format: Kindle Edition
Thardriik Jhunassi Kortlyn III, better known as Theak, is an ex-military pilot seeking his fortune as a private investigator, so when he receives an anonymous note basically saying, "meet me at this space station, and you'll make vast amounts of money," he immediately jumps onto ship and zooms over. What he finds when he reaches the station is a massacre. The next thing he knows, he's pulled into an ancient conflict between godlike beings, forced to fight for the side of good when all he really wants is to get paid--and live to tell the tale. Meanwhile, in another part of the galaxy, Omar and Palitz, two City Guard secretaries, find their planet overrun by undead former citizens, surrounded by omens of the apocalypse.

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.

Format: Paperback
Often new authors come out of the starting blocks at full speed, their first book has so much energy put into it the follow ups are sometimes empty affairs, lacking the power of the first.

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.
