Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite Nexus of Fates by Bill Parker is an action-packed sci-fi/fantasy tale that is well imagined and masterfully executed, a brilliant addition to The Five Moons saga. Dallas Blake buys a ship that wasn’t meant to be sold, and now he discovers a mission that could liberate the crew who have been kept on board as “moons”. Teamed with the crew, he has to fight all forms of evil plans devised to capture the Five Moons. It is exhilarating to watch Dallas and his team at work, fighting pirates, and poised against an inscrutable Evil that targets the ship. It is interesting to learn that the ship has its own intelligence and chooses its owner for a purpose. Dallas must do everything to fulfill a destiny that thrusts itself irrevocably into his path. How well can he guide the Five Moons and for how long can they go before Evil catches up with them? It’s for the reader to find out. This story is the work of great imagination and the author’s genius comes across in the tantalizing plot lines, the suspense, and the powerful imagery that fill the pages of this gripping story. The writing is beautiful, with intelligent and engaging dialogues that help to tighten the pace. Bill Parker creates a setting that reflects a very fertile imagination, but the curious thing is that he makes readers believe in it and see themselves in it. The characters in Nexus of Fates are compelling and readers will stick with Dallas even after they have completed the story. This is the kind of book for sci-fi lovers looking for a fast and entertaining read.
The Five Moons saga continues as Five Moons: Nexus of Fates carries this action-packed adventure into a battle with space pirates for the planet of Aeon-6. However, it is the backstory that gives this novel its heart and soul. After the Corporate War, Dallas Blake had bought a ship that was never meant for sale. Evil forces had intended to scrap it out and kill the crew that had been stored onboard as ‘moons’, images of the people they once were. But Dallas discovers that his ship had actually chosen him. It chose him to save the ship and its crew. In fact, it was the ship that had intertwined all of their fates forever. The ship itself was the Nexus of Fates. Indeed, Dallas had saved the ship and found the crew that evil forces had abandoned to be killed, but that was only the beginning. There was one more moon that he had not found. Along the way, Dallas Blake and the Five Moons had become Evil’s worst nightmare. So, Evil set his plan in motion to kill Dallas Blake. In order to survive, Dallas must do what it takes to set the fifth moon free. I guarantee - this is one heart pounding story right to the last word. This novel is first-rate space opera at its finest. The characters are wonderfully written and very funny at times. The multiple story lines, all intricately intertwined, made this a very fun read. Everything I thought I knew about the Five Moons story was challenged in this novel. It makes this whole series even better. I would strongly recommend this whole Five Moons series. I buy each one as quickly as they are released. As far as I am concerned, this is some of the best science fiction on the market. Bill Parker, you rock the scifi universe.
