What I like most about this series is what I liked of Asimov's books. The research is there. Cidney Swanson does one better, she gives the reader the opportunity to follow suggested links at the end of the book to learn about Mars, NASA, and other wonderful sciencey goodness.
But don't get hung-up on the science. Ms. Swanson creates strong characters and builds believable worlds. Jess, the spit-fire pilot and her brother Ethan, a savant hacker, are flying to Earth, back, and beyond to save their home-world of Mars. The depth of characters and their relationships astounds me.
I could go on and on but book five is calling me. Please, if you get the chance, read the Saving Mars series. I think the trilogy is still $.99. Enjoy!
Jessamyn, our heroine from Mars, is on the run from Chancellor Lucca while at the same time trying to get her team to disable the Terran satellites around Mars before they can be used against the Marisians (and avoid political ramifications on Mars). She is a great pilot who does her best to help the people she cares about (her friends and all of Mars) and bounces between courage and self-doubt and heroism in a way that makes her a good roll model.
Chancellor Lucca is the main villain and she puts Cruella DeVille (from 101 Dalmations) to shame! I completely see Glenn Close playing this part when these get adapted to a movie or TV series! The Chancellor is also Pavel's (Jessamyn's boyfriend) aunt, but there's more to that story to come in the future.
If you haven't read the other three books, you really need to start there, it's pretty hard to catch up and let's face it, you're going to want to go back and read the first three anyways, so just start there! Saving Mars (Saving Mars Series-1)
Great books for teens and adults! It's kind of a coming of age / saving the world (Mars) / sci-fi series.
I've since purchased my own copy, but originally I received a Advanced Reader's Copy (ARC) of this book for free so that I could have my fair and honest review ready when the book was released.
Mars Burning is the 4th book in the series so far and throughout the course of the story so far we have seen the characters develop and grow; both as individuals and within their relationships together. I found this book a riveting read and I found I just couldn't put it down once I'd started! Personally this has been my favourite book of the series and found the plot engaging and well thought out with something happening every step of the way. I would say more but I don't want to spoil the surprise!
I am highly anticipating book 5 now, and I can't wait to see what happens to Jess, Ethan and Pavel. And of course, to see the fate of the small red planet, Mars.
I would highly recommend this book to all fans of sci-fi fiction within the young adult genre :-)
At first I thought that the fugitives-on-the-lam storyline might get stale but I willingly followed the escapades to see where they would end up next, and to what means they would manage to escape detection. Each time it seemed just a bit more extreme, and that's what made me want to continue reading. I never felt that it was forced or unbelievable, just an adventure with potentially fatal mass consequences.
Cidney Swanson did her research to highlight the potential difficulties of life on Mars and it's tentative relationship to Earth.
I wrongly assumed that this was the final book in the series. There will be more!
