Go on the adventure of a lifetime with a teen and his family after they are selected to colonize Mars in this thrilling new novel from multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry.

Tristan has known that he and his family were going to be on the first mission to colonize Mars since he was twelve years old, and he has been training ever since. However, knowing that he would be leaving for Mars with no plan to return didn't stop him from falling in love with Izzy.

But now, at sixteen, it's time to leave Earth, and he's forced to face what he must leave behind in exchange for an uncertain future. When the news hits that another ship is already headed to colonize Mars, and the NeoLuddite terrorist group begins threatening the Mars One project, the mission's purpose is called into question. Is this all worth it?

I bought this book as a gift for a teenaged boy, but I read it too, and I loved it! It reminds me a bit of The Martian. I could hardly put it down. If you liked The Martian (and who didn't? It was a terrific book!), give this book a try.

This was actually a really good book!!
I would've given it 5 stars, but (spoilers) some of the plot twist were very perdicable, like Sofie being a neo-luddie, and also some of the Drama in it, like when the ships started to break down and people died.

But I really did like this book, I got sucked into it. I love space themes, so this was an awesome book! It's REALLY GOOD.
I hope there is a book two...
