A lot has changed since then. I was fortunate to strike up a friendship with Ms. London and was invited to be a beta reader for Destiny Nexus, the next installment of the Shimmer in the Dark sci-fi/fantasy series.
Good things come to those who wait.
In Destiny Nexus, we pick up with Major Niall Kearey and the Astereans where we left them at the end of Book 1. The planet Astereal is nothing but a ball of molten rock now and all the action had moved Earthside. However, instead of slipping across space-time to save an entire race, Major Kearey is using his incredible psycho-kinetic-mind portal abilities to perform espionage for the United States.
It gets worse. Niall’s abilities are a blessing and a curse—every government and power broker on Earth wants Kearey for their very own or at least wants to make sure that no one else can use him. Author London crawls through the back-stabbing politics and secret society backroom deals, each seedier than the last, until Niall’s options run out. The final gut-wrenching betrayal of a man who saved an entire race is more personally painful than he could ever imagine.
The ancient proverb says: “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” and when a new extraterrestrial evil threatens the planet Earth, Niall is called back to service. The same people who couldn’t wait to get rid of him now can’t wait to be on his side.
London writes with an easy style that makes you eat up pages and keeps the story moving along at a fast clip. This book also feels more personal than Rogue Genesis.Read more ›
If you enjoyed the breathless intensity of “Rogue Genesis” you will be equally enthralled by its sequel, “Destiny Nexus.” When you’re dealing with a hero with talents like Niall Kearey trouble is inevitable, especially when coupled with the US Government, the Pentagon, and a plethora of hidden agendas on the part of an ancient secret society. Add an influx of off-world alien immigrants from another planet and you not only have a plot which is bound to thicken but require considerable skill on the part of the author to tie it all together. This London achieves, the result a breath-taking kaleidoscope of science fiction intrigue. Several developments left me literally gasping, yet the scary part is that the author did such a convincing job of tying it all together that nothing exceeds the realm of reader credibility.
In this volume, character development takes its natural course as Niall experiences increasing pressure from those who resent and fear his talents. Hero-types don’t take well to such bullies, whether in the form of an individual or some powerful entity, yet as we all know “fighting city hall” usually doesn’t end well. The plot as well as various characters and situations darken, threats to Niall’s family taking a different turn than they did in “Rogue Genesis” yet no less hair-raising. New characters and developments related to Niall’s distant past arise which have startling implications as well.
I highly recommend reading (or rereading) “Rogue Genesis” to get the most out of this worthy sequel.Read more ›
