Book Description

They were prisoners, exiles, pawns of a corrupt government. Now they are Dr. Rachel Dycek’s adin, surgically transformed beings who can survive new lives on the surface of Mars. But they are still exiles, unable ever again to breathe Earth’s air. And they are still pawns.

For the adin exist to terraform Mars for human colonists, not for themselves. Creating a new Earth, they will destroy their world, killed by their own success. Desperate, adin leader Boris Tiban launches a suicide campaign to sabotage the Mars Project, knowing his people will perish in a glorious, doomed campaign of mayhem—unless embattled, bitter Rachel Dycek can find a miracle to save both the Mars Project and the race she created.

3.0 out of 5 stars Neither Good, nor Bad March 15, 2008
By Michel
Format:Mass Market Paperback
CO could have been much much better since the plot line is brilliant and the setting is sumptuous. It would have been enough to make Adins and Dvas genetically modified so that they were able to pass down their genes to their children to get a magnificent environment with three races, Adins, Dvas, and Humans, vying for controlling Mars. All those ingredients well blended could have made a prodigious epic, the magnitude of Dune, indeed. Alas KJA is not F. Herbert and a large part of the story is about the past of the protagonists, past spent on Earth. Remembrance poisons the story and ends up in weakening the plot. KJA had gold in his hands and changed it into... aluminium.

A well-written book with real and well-developed personalities. Plenty of internal and external conflict going on as they terraform Mars.
