OMG I loved this book. I feel most assured that the author put lots of thought into how the entirety of the novel would flow, and definitely aced it all the way. This has been a fabulous journey from Mars to Earth. Included is lots of loss, drama, adventure, and a little romance thrown in, with more loss. Simply put, one of the best and well written books I've read in a while. Thanks for the first book in series being free, I have now found a new author that I will be looking for more from.

Just plain STUPID! The book started off well. Interesting, reasonably well written. Then it went into the crapper. The entire premise is based on something ludicrous. It went into stupidville. Completely lost interest, and threw it in the trash. Worthless. If I could give it 0 stars I would. Waste of time. Given this performance, I have no interest in anything else by this writer.
