HASH(0x8b290168) out of 5 stars Brilliant read! 6 Aug. 2013
By Isabel - Published on Amazon.com

Well Cidney Swanson has done it again! Mars Burning is a fantastic read with twists, turns and characters that simply jump off the page.

Mars Burning is the 4th book in the series so far and throughout the course of the story so far we have seen the characters develop and grow; both as individuals and within their relationships together. I found this book a riveting read and I found I just couldn't put it down once I'd started! Personally this has been my favourite book of the series and found the plot engaging and well thought out with something happening every step of the way. I would say more but I don't want to spoil the surprise!

I am highly anticipating book 5 now, and I can't wait to see what happens to Jess, Ethan and Pavel. And of course, to see the fate of the small red planet, Mars.

I would highly recommend this book to all fans of sci-fi fiction within the young adult genre :-)

HASH(0x91225e40) out of 5 stars Thank you for a great fourth book of this excellent series! 5 Aug. 2013
By Gary LaPointe - Published on Amazon.com

Mars Burning is the fourth book of the excellent SAVING MARS series by Cidney Swanson that I've really been looking forward to read!

Jessamyn, our heroine from Mars, is on the run from Chancellor Lucca while at the same time trying to get her team to disable the Terran satellites around Mars before they can be used against the Marisians (and avoid political ramifications on Mars). She is a great pilot who does her best to help the people she cares about (her friends and all of Mars) and bounces between courage and self-doubt and heroism in a way that makes her a good roll model.

Chancellor Lucca is the main villain and she puts Cruella DeVille (from 101 Dalmations) to shame! I completely see Glenn Close playing this part when these get adapted to a movie or TV series! The Chancellor is also Pavel's (Jessamyn's boyfriend) aunt, but there's more to that story to come in the future.

If you haven't read the other three books, you really need to start there, it's pretty hard to catch up and let's face it, you're going to want to go back and read the first three anyways, so just start there! Saving Mars (Saving Mars Series-1)

Great books for teens and adults! It's kind of a coming of age / saving the world (Mars) / sci-fi series.

HASH(0x8b951828) out of 5 stars Love this series 17 Sept. 2013
By K. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I started with this series when the first one was free. I hardly ever pay for Kindle books but I have bought three of this series and can hardly wait for the next one. It reminds me of the best of early Heinlein, which given my age is about the highest compliment I can give. I love the characters, I love the society, I love the writing. More please, and soon!

HASH(0x8b971c48) out of 5 stars I Am In Love With Mars 10 Aug. 2013
By Emily Rachelle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Give me a minute to breath.

Okay... no, wait, another minute. Look at that gorgeous cover while you wait. Look at that beauty!

Just - just one more, please.

Whew. This masterpiece really knocks the breath out of you.

Jess is running for her life, breaking rules, kicking butt and being her general all-out Mars patriot hero self - all while falling completely, totally in love with a boy from a world she never wanted anything to do with.

Nothing new there. But man, this story never gets old. She is awesome. Pavel is amazing. The Wallaces are hilarious. Lucca is just cold-blooded, terrifying evil in bodily form. Vladim Wu and Gaspar Bonaparte are freaky psycho minions who drive me nuts and make me cry. But - dare I say this - Cavanaugh, at least in the level of hatred he drew from me, leaves them all way behind. The evil, evil, evil traitor... I just have no words for how horrifyingly low the bad guys in this book fell.

The good guys, though - well, they're mostly the same people we've come to adore. Jess is struggling with whether her rule-breaking streak is really ever a good idea; Kipper is coming to learn that not everything is black and white - while recovering from a whole awful lot; and Pavel is fighting to keep his love alive and well without compromising everything she lives for. Meanwhile, Brian is just as feisty and Harpreet just as wise and gentle as ever, if a little less present in this book. (Ironic, considering the group's all together on the run for most of it...)

The plot of this book is a little hard to explain. Most books have a main plot with a ton of other events that move things along but don't fit in a simple summary. As far as plot goes, honestly, the Amazon summary gives you almost everything - and that's not a bad thing. Actions, events, and reactions come along at breakneck speed as the characters race through their crazy lives. This is the most character-driven book I think I've ever read.

As usual, the writing from Cidney was just brilliant. Just like the other Mars books, there's no actual language. There's a little more romance than there's been in the previous Mars books - probably because, you know, the characters are actually with each other more this time - and the line definitely crosses into making out. If I remember correctly, it's very similar to the kind of thing found in the Ripple series: heavy kissing, a lot of notice at physical aspects, and some sweet-and-literal-not-risque sleeping together. There's nothing totally PG-13, per say, but be forewarned that it qualifies as sensual.

Four and a half stars and please Cidney hurry with book five! :D

I was provided a free copy of this book. The author requested a review, but none was guaranteed. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Mars Burning

What can I say about this series? Each book leaves me oxygen deprived and weightless! I'm literally holding my breath as Jess and her friends struggle to stay one step ahead of the evil Terran Chancellor Lucca who is hell bent on destroying Mars.

The world building is amazing! Ms. Swanson has created a very believable society on Mars and a disturbing dystopian society on Earth. This series is packed with plenty of action and suspense, but what I enjoy most is the characters. Jess is a fantastic leading character! She's grown from a young and rebellious, but very talented pilot, to a responsible member of a team on a dangerous mission to save Mars. Pavel, Lucca's nephew, has rebelled against his aunt and her regime and sided with Jess. The two are reunited in this volume and we finally get to see their relationship develop romantically. Yah! But their love for each other isn't the main focus as political upheaval on Mars threatens the planet on another front.

I can't get enough of this series and I highly recommend it!
