Book Description

Mars is dying. In an epic undertaking, its declining population makes preparations to journey to Earth, a planet still inhabited by prehistoric life in our very distant past. Eris Moon, a spacecraft, is constructed by converting one of the moons of Mars.

As the date of the exodus approaches, Zymon Cates, a high-ranking reconnaissance pilot, crash lands at the southern ice cap and is held against his will by the mistrustful inhabitants of Kaa, a long forgotten underground city. Now Zymon must escape before Eris Moon leaves orbit forever, and while there is very little time, time is the least of his problems.

Meanwhile, Dex Pheetyr, a sociopathic killer, escapes from the Mars-based penal colony and stows away aboard the rescue ship sent to find Cates. What the presence of this single convict means for Eris Moon as well as the future of humankind on Earth could never be predicted.

3.0 out of 5 stars History always repeat itself! 25 April 2015
By Jo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this updated retelling of very modern stories regarding our evolution here on Earth. The reason I have given this 3 stars is due to the weak language. I think that if more time was spent on the editing this would have been avoided. I look forward to the next instalment despite the conclusion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Despite some good parts overly melodramatic and poorly executed 24 July 2013
By Jason Jackson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
There is an interesting story somewhere in the premise of this book, but the author didn't tell it. The novel starts off well enough, laying down what feels like the start of a hard-science fiction tale worthy of the book's length. In fact the book does indeed stay focused on the central plot and painting characters well enough for the first 1/3 of its length. Then things turn downwards. Emotionally shallow and overly melodramatic scenes begin to be included with newly introduced characters. Scenes that involve some petty nuance of a character go on for pages and pages. It is almost like a different author took over writing for chapters at a time. Then out of the blue the book gets good again, only to take another slide into mediocrity and harlequin story telling.

I think this book needed an editor, and needed a few more drafts of the story. There are pages and pages that could simply be trimmed out of the story, subplots that could be improved, and side stories that could either be editing out or changed to be less shallow.

I don't give many books 1 star, but this one really earned it by tricking me into thinking it was good and then totally failing to deliver on that promise, after a few nights of reading.
3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Premise, Interesting Characters, Shaky Science 17 Mar. 2015
By Czere - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A couple of the characters were exaggerated, but most were plausible. Some wrong words: e.g. "Sight" instead of "site" for a location. Laws of physics were often sidestepped. Big problem with units: If "klick" was meant to be a kilometer, then a microclick would be a millimeter. Several dimensional inconsistencies, and some temporal ones, such as using units which weren't established for 58 million more years.

Is this really for a youth reader? I never hooked me in. It seemed dull never getting anywhere. Sorry I didn't get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting premise 11 Mar. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was good speculative fiction, not hard science, but enough technical information thrown in to keep me interested. Who is to say that it couldn't have happened...the science community now feels that Mars once had an atmosphere and water. I enjoyed the read and can recommend it to anyone who likes a good story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ice ahead 18 Feb. 2013
By Three Bears - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story has more twists and turns than one person can logically follow. However, it does keep you reading to see just how it turns out. Another thing: every situation presented is somewhat understandable, but then it somehow changes the character's view of the present reality.
