The action currently revolves around the death of an artist. As the title of the first chapter suggests, the curious case of Ale Euclid has created some disturbances around many planets. An organization hires a detective to make sure there is no link to them. But other events happen all around galaxies that are tied up to this case. There are people trying to understand the changes that happen to them, the voices they hear. The mystery and adventure will keep you tangled in the pages like an addict.
What I mostly liked about “Sixth Prime” was the attention to details and how every planet or every place the action reached was different then the next. The characters were also unique, some with a hidden agenda, some oblivious to the bigger picture and some trying to follow their simple plans.
This is a book that opens up the reader not only to a great story, but to an entirely different world, where only the strongest can survive, a battle between primes and planets even. I advise you to give it a try; it’s definitely worth the while!
Through many genres of writing Dan seems to always come out on top and SIXTH PRIME is no exception. And knowing that this volume is Book 1 of The Prime Saga reassures us that his venture into the galaxies will prove enthralling. The characters he introduces in this saga are anything but usual as we can tell form his opening page subtitled ‘The curious case of Ale Euclid’: ‘Canvases lined the walls. Smudged and erratic strokes revealed a quiet genius encumbered by a great sadness. The open space in which the somber artist brooded appeared larger than it was. Ale Euclid suffered from a tendency to check out from his surroundings, imbuing his personal experiences with a special kind of significance felt only by those who wrote the story of their lives with broad strokes of emotional connection. Outside, the darkness of the light-filled metropolis ebbed and flowed like the lapping shores of the island on which it sprawled. The bustling world around him not only satisfied the collectivistic yearning of his gregariousness, but also allowed him to disappear from the crowd behind closed doors, playing to the reserved sensibilities of an artist in the midst of a storm of conflicting and contrasting ideals. Ale had few friends except for a small circle of fellow painters and artists who populated the Inked District of the remote island of Nyan, the largest of the Tranquil Isles. Ale placed a special emphasis on the aesthetics and ambiance of
his surroundings, which made island life amidst the peaceful, harmonious culture of Nyan the ideal backdrop for his inspiration. The outer door of his loft beeped rhythmically, a sliver of light infecting the purposeful darkness of his studio. Ale did not move, instead remaining motionless. His gaze was intently fixed on an almost-finished piece he called Constancy, a magnificent representation of the universe reduced to darkness and light battling toward an inevitable end. Yet, it remained unfinished.’
But inviting though that is, the synopsis signals the reason for the title: ‘188.8.131.52.11.13. A war brews as a galaxy struggles to maintain a peace treaty signed in haste. The Commonwealth boasts sprawling cities built upon slums. The Sovereignty has placed the yoke of industry upon its citizens. Sixteen men and women are connected in a way they cannot yet understand. A murder of a prominent artist begins a chain of events that will ultimately determine the fate of the universe. Only thirteen will remain. In the end, there can be only one Prime. Are you a Prime?’
Mystery, intrigue and some intellectually challenging twists make this first episode mesmerizing and leaves us eager for Book 2. Grady Harp, July 16
