Book Description

Volume 5 of the Nexus - The Second Betrayal

The House of All Faith is now a major world religion on a par with Islam and Christianity but the Design - the underlying principle of Divine conflict - ensures that its enemies such as the fascist Citizens Party and the Sharpe Foundation, rise up to challenge the House both politically and financially.

The Book of All Faith, the vast House A.I. system, has embarked on the Great Revelation - the mathematical proof of the Design and hence the existence of the Creator. The sinister trillionaire, Albert Edward Maeth, has set up the Foundation with the aim of destroying the Book along with the House and their Blessed Prophet - and anyone else who gets in his way.

Two years after Digwell Street, Gemma Lewis has recovered from her dreadful injuries and the Lewises and their friends have enjoyed a relatively peaceful two years grieving for the loss of Gemma's younger sister, Tamsin. Gemma realises that all her family and friends were meant to die at the Transcending and in Digwell Street becaude the Design, having created them to destroy the Aberration, still wants to remove them from the scales of the Celestial Balance.

At Cath Palug, Tamsin Lewis reappears in the very place she was killed with no memory of her missing two years. The trouble is, she's a Changeling, sparking another wave of fear and hatred against this remarkable family and their friends.

With the Design creating powerful enemies in both the present and the future, the Changeling is their last and only hope.

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Paul D.E. Mitchell is a mid-fifties writer who after being a local politician, programmer, builder and single father is now pursuing a dream to explore complex theological and scientific ideas in novel form and plans at least twenty books.

"I had wondered about the concept of parallel worlds where a destiny choice at a key moment - the lever, fulcrum and rotation of the first three titles - sends the whole of Creation onto a new path," he said in a recent interview.

"I'm agnostic so I invented the Lewises and Sheppards to represent the yin and yang of existence and came up with the concept of Evolution as Intelligent Design where warfare and struggle advance species across the universe into higher and higher forms of life. The series of books have basically developed from there. The stories are complex and interwoven with the interactions and viewpoints of ordinary people drawn into the conflicts of the main characters that spawned yet more plots and ideas - leading to the Nexus series."

He is also writing poetry (The Long Grim Book of Thin) and has just published his latest music book - the Ka-Ching Guitar Guide.

More About the Author

Paul D.E. Mitchell (b1956) has enjoyed a varied career in chemistry, computing, teaching, lecturing, music (as a bassist in numerous bands), and served as a senior Cardiff councillor for 10 years.

First as a single-father and then as a carer for elderly relatives, he retired from the private sector and politics to concentrate on poetry and bringing to life a complex near-future sci-fi/paranormal series of nine books called the Nexus.

The Nexus draws on myth, science, fantasy, the paranormal and theology in equal measure (plus a dash of Wiccan ancestry) to explore some interesting concepts about sentience and the reason for existence - also told from the point of view of ordinary people in a small town who find themselves at the centre of extraordinary events and interacting with the main characters.

He has also published a guitar guide and his latest anthology of poems - the Long Grin - and has just completed the sixth in the Nexus series, Shrines. Before the final trilogy is written, three stand-alone novels are in progress: Mute, Light-Father and Ghost Army, the latter based on his experience as a domiciliary carer. Light-Father - which is aimed at 12-18 year olds - was published in February 2012.

He has also edited and published 'Living With Siamese Cats' by Jenny Bass and 'Sacred Welsh Waters' by Chris Thomas and is advising three other authors. He is also writing songs and playing double-bass with the Goodfellas in Cardiff! He is also standing for Cardiff council in the May 2012 elections, a school governor and chair of a welfare advice charity. A busy life!
