This review is for the Kindle edition ebook.
Disclosure: I was given my copy of this book by the author as a review copy.
Action, love, outer space, sadness; all in one good book.
An astronaut is waiting for her chance to go to the moon. Instead, she finds herself going to Mars. Something goes wonderfully, horribly wrong on the surface of Mars, and her life changes in ways that no one could ever predict.
I liked this book. It was fun to read, and had enough unexpected turns to keep me interested. The story starts with a believable chapter in the life of a female astronaut. Once she is chosen for the Mars trip, she is ecstatic. This trip takes a long time, and upon her return, many strange things start happening. The United States government, the FBI, the CIA, a large corporation, and several others take part in this story. I was not ready for this story to end when it did.
This book is very entertaining. It will grab hold of you, and keep poking at you to finish it.
I would recommend this story to science fiction readers that enjoy something a little different. This will not give you the highs of the shoot-em-up in outer space. It takes place place on earth, for the most part. It could be a real story and has enough elements be good fiction. I look forward to reading more by this author.

This was a fun, but not always believable story, about a woman astronaut, Brooke Jones, who travels to Mars and causes the authorities a lot of hassle when she returns back to Earth. The president, the FBI, and a large company, all make their appearance. While I usually don’t enjoy stories where they do, in this case, I didn’t mind as the story focused more on Brooke than on them.
The story of Brooke was intriguing (if probably not scientifically possible) and I wanted to know more about her. I was keen for her to stay out of reach of the several authorities that were after her. She was a strong woman, which I always like to read about.
The writing wasn’t always strong – especially the dialogues were sometimes a little stilted. For instance, people would give each other information that they should know already (for instance, because they live together, like Brooke and her boyfriend), and the information was obviously only given so the reader would understand what was going on. Also, I didn’t like how sometimes months or years could pass from one paragraph to the next, without there being much change in the characters or their lives (an exception being Brooke’s boyfriend).
But overall, I found this story very entertaining, and when I wasn’t reading, I was looking forward to pick up the e-reader again to continue.
