About this ebook

Five years after the Ephialtes incident, two worlds teeter on the brink of the abyss.

On Earth, civil unrest pushes the USAN towards a second strike at Mars.

On Mars, divided loyalties threaten the entire independence project.

A shocking act of violence triggers a desperate scramble for supremacy.

Pressure is building. Peace is crumbling. Fear is mounting.

The peace delivered in the wake of the Ephialtes incident is more fragile than many suppose. The USAN’s rearmament program continues apace, hindered only by the harsh economic realities imposed by the Martian deuterium embargo.

On Mars, Askel and Bobby have to come to terms with an uncertain future while Foveaux and Kostovich brace themselves for the crisis they dread but know is coming.

When a brutal incursion sends two planets careening towards conflict there is nowhere left to hide. The cold war between Earth and Mars is about to get hot, and there can only be one winner.

About the author

Gavin E Parker is from the Isle of Thanet in southern England, where he has lived and worked his whole life. He has dabbled in music, film and video in the past and is currently writing novels, short stories, and blogs.

Inspired by the rapidly expanding possibilities open to publishers in the twenty-first century, in 2014 Gavin set about writing his debut novel, Ephialtes. Ephialtes is the first of a trilogy of books chronicling the war between Earth and its former colony on Mars. A series of shorter pieces - the Ephialtes codices - set in the same fictional universe complement the main trilogy.

Having worked in healthcare, local government and education he has a mildly jaundiced view of the human condition, but still maintains good humour about it. Things could be worse, right?
