This action-packed novel was intense! I didn't know if I'd like it at first, but I ended up loving it. It has a very intriguing premise. Adrian Palmer goes with his team to Mars and gets sucked into a wormhole and stranded in another galaxy on a world like Earth called Terrest. He helps these people until another alien race comes and wipes out most of the population. Adrian and his group lead a resistance movement against the superior Gnol race (humans that use 80% of their brain instead of only 10% like the Earthlings and Terrestians). This story has religious undertones that were very intriguing and helped the plot along. There are many characters, but you get to know them fast and love them. The cliff-hanger ending made me very glad that the next book is already written so I can go download it.

All I can say is WOW!
I saw that this book was available for free for my Nook, and the premise of it looked interesting, so I downloaded it and dove right in. Before I knew it, two hours had already gone by. I couldn't put it down. The author does an excellent job of the reader wanting more after each chapter. I'm not much of a religious person, but I do believe in God. And the way Shaun Messick incorporates the supernatural, religion, and great science fiction is impeccable. I can't wait for the next book in the "Worlds Without End" series!
