Editorial Reviews

“Maberry mixes sci-fi details with romance and satire of modern media, his Mars One mission hosting a diverse set of characters that will have readers wishing they could join up. Maberry wins with his on-the-spot dialogue, and his characters grace the page with ease.” Kirkus Reviews
“Tristan is a believable narrator, and readers feel his distress and excitement. A diverse group of characters add to the overall feeling of unity that shines through the story.” School Library Journal

Just An Awesome Book

I waited a long time for this one to come out on audio and it was definitely worth the wait. Wow, Maberry did it again. This is another masterpiece all the way through. In every single book, he makes it seem so real, no matter how unbelievable it may seem. From technology to space travel and anything in between. For fans of Maberry, they will definitely know what I am talking about. He studies until he is an expert on the subject and then puts pen to paper. I was hooked from the first line of this book.

Just when you think you know where he’s going with Mars One, there is a curveball and it makes the story even better. Outer space is so mysterious, dangerous, and unknown but what is awesome is what Maberry does with this. There is even some young love that he does a great job of not allowing it to consume the whole story, but there is enough of it to make you wonder if it will work out or not.

Mars One even has you laughing out loud at times. This story brings consumerism to a whole other level too. The characters are so real and flawed that I liked every single one of them and they make the story run like clockwork.

I really liked the multicultural cast Maberry has employed throughout the entire story. Plus if you love tattoos, like I do then you will get to hear about one of the coolest tattoos I have ever heard of. This cast of characters shows how wonderful the entire world is.

MacLeod Andrews kills it. His performance was marvelous. As with the multicultural cast of characters comes a multicultural set of voices and accents and Andrews does a totally amazing job. He adds so much to this story and makes the listener feel the emotions the characters are displaying. Andrews has that swagger to his performance that will make you seek out other titles he narrates. This is not my first book performed by him and definitely not my last.

As for Maberry, he continues to produce works of art that readers/ listeners all over the world enjoy. An Awesome listening experience!!
