Nexus Point

Jaleta Clegg

When Captain Dace crash lands on a primitive planet, she finds herself on the run from villagers who are sure she's a demon, and the Space Patrol who's sure she's one of the bad guys.  Accused of stealing her own ship, facing death (or worse) at the hands of those who should be rescuing her, she must find not only some way to survive, but also escape.  Unfortunately, the world has other plans.

My Take:

People have been calling this book a "Space Opera."  Well, I didn't really know what that term meant, so I looked it up, and many people seem to think it means a dramatic and epic space adventure.  But really no one could agree on one definition anyway, and since I think that phrase is super cheesy, I will refrain from using it to describe Nexus Point.  I really saw this book as what would happen if the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises had a baby.  The book was quite epic and very enjoyable with a little bit of everything.  There was science fiction, romance, adventure, mythology and humor.  I very much enjoyed the inventiveness of the storyline and the strong protagonist.  Nexus Point was a bit depressing at the beginning, and tough to get into, but after that it was pretty fun.  I really enjoyed the book overall, but it was missing one very key element after all was said and done.  It didn't so much resonate with me when it was over, meaning, I didn't give it that much thought afterward.  This may seem arbitrary, but its an important factor with me.  3, Find a Used Book Store
