BTW, it may be only because I'm currently working in the political arena, but I can see shadows of our current situation in this saga -- one side seeking to impose "peace and prosperity" through top-down control ... the other fighting to free to people to make their own choices and live their own lives.
Lindsay and Sasha have done a spectacular job of bringing this dazzling space race to a mind-blowing conclusion.

Okay, guys, I really did want to like this one. I really enjoyed Zenith, but Nexus just didn’t do it for me. I don’t know what it was, but there was just something about it that it made it really difficult for me to get into.
One thing that really kind of made it difficult was the fact that Nexus didn’t seem as well planned out as Zenith. Yes, I am aware that Zenith wasn’t prefect, but there was at least a little bit of logic to it. Nexus just feels like a mess. Sure, it picks right up where Zenith left off, but it’s like something is missing. It a second book, I expect some growth and change, but it just doesn’t happen here. It was almost as if the authors were trying too hard to impress their readers and critics instead of just letting the book be its own voice.
Nor was the biggest disappointment in the book. She comes into the book with so much potential as a villain and falls flat. I hated how she was so dependent on everyone else to make things happen. It was like she was just lying on the couch, waiting for everyone else to get things for her. it was really annoying.
There was no character growth for the other characters either. I couldn’t feel sorry for them as well. I get that things are bad, but it just didn’t come across the page like that. What I’m getting at is the bonds that I felt from the first book just aren’t here. What I think happened was the authors were once again caught up in trying to wrap everything up and forgot that it’s really the little moments that make a book. We need to see those bonds very clearly or we just simply are not going to be able to connect with the characters.
The plot really doesn’t come together until hallway through the book. It’s sad, because we are coming in with so much potential from Zenith and it just doesn’t happen. Nexus should have picked right up where Zenith left off. Instead, we have the characters whining about everything. Plus, none of them are capable of doing anything on their own now for some reason.
The writing was okay. It is better structurally than Zenith, but it just doesn’t have the touch from Zenith. I know Zenith was not the best written book, but it had charm. Nexus-not so much. There was actually a lot much things in Nexus that didn’t make sense and flow. I didn’t notice it so much in Zenith, but here it’s there. Things really aren’t explained and the science just doesn’t make any sense.
I am not giving up on Sasha, but I do hope she listens to her critics and changes things up. I’ve said this again and again: I would much rather have a poorer book and charm, than art and no charm.
