Nexus by J. edward
Nexus by J. Edward is the thrilling sequel to Portal. It is the story of a fantastical afterlife on the planet Pluto (known as Earth Two to its inhabitants).
Through the portal to this world, many people have traveled to this place in the past; now, the struggle for the planet’s priceless element, palliridium, comes to a climax as each group of people strive to use it for their own purposes.
As this struggle continues, the struggle between the groups intensifies as well. Through impressive technological advancements, a war is waged between the different groups, now formed into the cities Immensity, Banefulsity, Bellicosity, and Eternalsity.
Through multiple character viewpoints, J. Edward opens this world to his readers to explore in multiple ways: how is it different? How is it similar? Are politics and corruption human nature or a product of the world we live in? And lastly, how would we change the world if we had a second chance at living?
J. Edward’s Nexus explores these ideas and more through his interesting and complicated characters. He explores the relationships between the different citizens and how these relationships complicate the actions of the story.
