IT?S THE YEAR 2457?

Humans have colonized MARS for over 400 years and live in underground settlements. 

In 2447, a Great Plague swept the Earth and the mutant virus, created by illegal genetic experiments, killed 90 percent of humanity. Now just 1.5 billion humans inhabit the planet and many have robotic mates called Organics.

But Rebellion Is Brewing On MARS?.

Astar Blackburn, the charismatic descendant of Martian explorer, Arden Blackburn, wants independence for Mars.

He collaborates with Dr Harvey Lathrop, the most brilliant scientist on Mars, to militarize the planet. They send Mara Murphy and her team of spies to establish sleeper cells on Earth. 

But will the corrupt Earth Council find out about their plan? Will the prophecy of the Oracle come true? And what secrets does Mars yet have to reveal to them? 

If you love science-fiction thrillers about Mars and Martians, you?ll enjoy this short sci-fi thriller.

"One for fans of the genre, if you enjoy the writing and the premise, then it will be worth following"

Reviewer: .


Born on Mars, Mara spends her days overseeing the robots used to farm water and water from the Red Planet while wondering what her life is for. A chance encounter with Astar Blackburn, whose grandfather was a major explorer of Mars, leads her to sign up for a new adventure. Meanwhile Astar is planning to free Mars from the oversight of the Earth Council and allow Mars to rule itself. Enlisting the aid of scientific prodigy, Dr. Lathrop, he looks to construct weapons and armour to facilitate the rebellion. Following this Mara is sent to Earth with several other Martians to make contact with sympathisers as the struggle begins.

The first in a series of sci-fi books, this is an intro to the main characters and sets the scene for the story. The plot is split between the events on Earth and Mars following both those for and against the rebellion. Those expecting action will have to wait for future books as this takes a slower pace to introduce us to the characters and what they are aiming for. Unfortunately, I didn't find the characters to be that relatable. They range from the idealistic to the hyper-intelligent and they have yet to really spark as to what kind of person they are. We have a good understanding of their ideas and dreams, but are only given a glimpse of what they might be capable of.

The writing was enjoyable, descriptive of the scenes and doing it's best to bring the characters to life. The situations they find themselves in are being set up and as yet there are no consequences to the actions they are taking. This is very much a taster for the series, if you enjoy the writing and the situation, then it will be worth following.
