The Tesseract Codex: Mission One is a work of fiction in the science fiction genre, and is intended as the first installment in a series. It is aimed at mature readers and was penned by author W. P. Parker. It follows the adventures of John Korbin, a survivor who has lost all he holds dear and who comes to be the owner of a mysterious ship built from alien technology. Now with a crew keen to survive in a post-war galaxy, Korbin must undertake a dangerous rescue mission and a desperate fight against an old and familiar enemy. With a new homeworld to defend, Korbin and his crew will leave nothing on the table.
The Tesseract Code is a science fiction novel that is packed with action and compelling characters. Parker is a master at building suspense and mystery, and I found myself on the edge of my seat, waiting to discover John’s and his homeworld’s fate. John himself is a fully fleshed-out character who you find yourself rooting for and feeling sympathy with, immediately making the story accessible to everyone. The Tesseract Code is a work of speculative fiction which, though wild and out of this world on paper, could not be more grounded in reality in practice. Author W. P. Parker has delivered a thoroughly enjoyable and exciting novel that you will find hard to put down. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this novel to those who enjoy science fiction novels, and those who are looking for novels driven by a cast of strong characters.
