Jupiter is screaming. When Mars 01 is bombarded by panicked transmissions from the outer colonies, the United Terran Nations prepares for war. By the fastest known means of interplanetary travel, the enemy should be months away, but should and known don’t apply when these strange creatures don’t appear on video feeds and can survive unprotected in the void of space.
The nations of the UTN do nothing but posture and bicker for political gain as the Earthers prepare for an invasion. Unsupported, Captain Sara Moore prepares her crew to defend itself in the face of annihilation. Abandoned by Earth, it becomes clear that the people of Mars are just pawns in a much bigger game.
“This is an action flick in book form. I mean that as a compliment. Stuff blows up. There’s fightin’ and killin’, and a good, brutal time is had by all.”- Joe Crowe, RevolutionSF
