My Review:

This book contains more than a story, contains an entire universe, with planets that have their own history, or even their own species, with unique particularities for life support. I as captured by how deeply the author went when creating the proper environment for such a great adventure. And yes, I call it adventure because I have traveled to so many places with each chapter that it was becoming sometimes difficult to keep up with the where and who. Still, I can say that I am in awe of what Dan O’Brien has managed to do is these pages.

The action currently revolves around the death of an artist. As the title of the first chapter suggests, the curious case of Ale Euclid has created some disturbances around many planets. An organization hires a detective to make sure there is no link to them. But other events happen all around galaxies that are tied up to this case. There are people trying to understand the changes that happen to them, the voices they hear.  The mystery and adventure will keep you tangled in the pages like an addict.

What I mostly liked about “Sixth Prime” was the attention to details and how every planet or every place the action reached was different then the next. The characters were also unique, some with a hidden agenda, some oblivious to the bigger picture and some trying to follow their simple plans.

This is a book that opens up the reader not only to a great story, but to an entirely different world, where only the strongest can survive, a battle between primes and planets even. I advise you to give it a try; it’s definitely worth the while!
