WORLDS WITHOUT END: THE MISSION (Book 1)
“The characters are exciting, and full of color and the story consumes your soul and imagination.” – Bookreview buz
The discovery of a new world may be the very thing that threatens the freedom of the human race and changes the destiny of mankind forever.
Twenty-three years after the disappearance of the Mars I space shuttle, NASA receives a mysterious transmission from Adrian Palmer, the commander of the mission. Adrian’s brother, Kevin, wastes no time funding the Mars II rescue mission, commanded by Jake Palmer, Adrian’s son.
Jake and Dr. Steven “Skip” Hendricks, a NASA physicist, travel through a wormhole that Skip believes was the reason the Mars I crew disappeared. They eventually crash-land on the planet Terrest and are thrust into a dangerous conflict. The native Terrestrians are at war against a super-race of humans called the Gnols, led by Koroan Chast. The Terrestrian’s struggle is futile because of the godlike abilities of the Gnols.
Now, the only hope mankind has may rest on a 2000-year-old prophecy discovered in an ancient temple on Terrest. But before the prophecy can come to pass, Adrian and Jake must first stop the Gnols from attacking Earth and enslaving the human race.

Stars Without End
“Shaun Messick does an excellent job of creating a book that the young and the old can read and appreciate…. Definite 5 stars. One of the best books I’ve ever read and I’ve read thousands of books in my time. Can’t wait for the 2nd book to come out and I’ll be devouring that book as soon as it’s on the shelves. Buy this book! You won’t be disappointed!”
“I loved it from start to finish, I couldn’t put it down once I picked it up it was so magnificent. The author paints a very poetic picture of the characters. I saw all the wonderful reviews and I just couldn’t resist. I’m very glad I read this book, it was a true delight! He never disappoints with his writing he is an absolute craftsman and makes every word just jump off the page and come to life right in front of your eyes.”
I couldn't Put "The Mission" Down!
“What a fantastic book. The author took a somewhat obscure gospel idea (worlds without end) and created an experience and places that were plausible; new places that made me hope really exist. The character development was well done. By the end of the book I began to feel like I knew what the characters would do in each new setting because of the clear morals and strengths outlined for each character.”
What an adventure...
“Shaun F. Messick has written an excellent story (book 1 of 4) that includes fantastic character development and thrilling narrative. His descriptive storytelling makes one feel as if they were truly present… Thrilling, yet faith inspiring, “Worlds Without End: The Mission” is both an easy buy and an excellent read!”
