Publisher Description

The inhuman Rulers of the galaxy sent three fleets to learn what had happened to the world located by Captain North and the Survey Team he led. Neither a soul nor a message returned. The fourth time, the Rulers sent a single man: Nils Hansen.

Commissioner Hansen had a mind that saw the shortest path to each task's completion and a ruthless determination to do what the task required. The cost - to himself and whoever happened to be in the way - didn't matter. Hanson's Special Units had kept his planet safe from the most sophisticated and violent criminals in the galaxy. Now Hansen was being sent to penetrate a spacetime enigma which had made gods or demons of the first humans to discover it. He would succeed or die.

Northworld: a place of slashing violence and mystic transformation
Northworld: a place of treachery and dazzling beauty
Northworld: a place of honor, of faith, and of love.

Hansen's iron will and strong arm confront godlike power and godlike cunning while a galaxy trembles for the outcome. And if Hansen dies - he will not die alone!

… is a great story; it keeps moving all the way to the end, and you don't know what's going to happen. There are some problems with the ebook itself in the last few chapters, where sentences are mixed up. It'd be nice if they fixed it.

Started out of well

But, in the second story it turned into something I wouldn’t want anyone else in the house to pick up and read. Really don’t understand why it went there. It didn’t need to. It was like he was trying to win a bet where as a writer who could best become one of his characters through his writing. If that was the goal he won the bet, but I found myself feeling sorry for the character and not liking the writer much at all for his portrayal.
