NEXUS is a non-linear series in which every book has some kind of connection to the others. Although best read in order for more background and understanding, most of the books stand alone. The only exception so far is book 4, which is a direct sequel to book 3.
Shadow of the Wraith is the first book in the non-linear NEXUS series.
It sounds like a simple assignment: track down the mysterious Star Wraith and put an end to its rampage.
But when Travis Archer and his team of inept soldiers find themselves the most wanted people in the galaxy – hounded by assassins, terrorists and their own military – they realise the Wraith is just a symptom of a much larger problem…
Finding war raging between one army intent on destroying an entire species, and another that will destroy the galaxy, Travis must put aside his fears and his past to uncover the truth behind it all. To become the hero he’s always imagined.
Temple of the Sixth is the second book in the NEXUS series. It links to Shadow of the Wraith, but is not a direct sequel.
When omens of the End Times appear across the galaxy, it signals the start of a war between two immortal forces – the Celestians and the Hierarchy. The Hierarchy have learnt and adapted since they last waged war, forcing the Celestians to enlist the aid of mortals to free a kidnapped god.
Thardriik Jhunassi Kortlyn III – Theak – was a private detective. For a day. Then came the incident with the dead puppy and the inevitable end of his crime-fighting career. Despite his flaws, Theak is a clear choice for the Celestians, and he is drawn into the centre of a battle that will decide the fate of the galaxy.
Time is something the Celestians’ heroes do not have as the Hierarchy’s infection spreads across countless worlds, bending every living creature to their will. With the heroes’ every step bringing them closer towards one final battle, there is only one question: can they defeat an ancient and immortal enemy?
Blades of the Fallen is the third book in the NEXUS series. It also links to the first book, but takes place over 100 years before it.
The murder changes everything. The Vanguard is supposed to protect against such violence, not fall victim to it. But even the so-called ‘Fallen’ wouldn’t kill without reason. Would they?
The murderer changes everything. The Fallen keep to themselves, living comfortably separate to other Necurians. But he is dragging them towards war. Why is he so convinced that it’s the Vanguard’s fault?
The inquisitors have changed. As teenagers, they witnessed the murder in front of their eyes. Five years later, they wield the authority of the Vanguard, and they will hunt down the killer. The motives must be uncovered. Because even the Fallen would not kill without reason.
Ghosts of the Fallen is the fourth book in the NEXUS series. This is the series’ first direct sequel (to Blades of the Fallen).
Four inquisitors, four paths. The path of justice. The path of vengeance. The path of love. The path of fear.
The Vanguard is still reeling from Bane and his master. There are still scattered remnants of the Fallen to hunt down. But so too are there unknown elements moving in the shadows. A cult whose path to their god of war is through the death of inquisitors. An empire on the path to something terrible. And meanwhile, a familiar darkness rises anew.
The little girl with accelerated ageing asked only one thing before she died: don’t let them do this again. It was a promise they could not keep.
