Lewis Shiner's stunning science fiction debut
After the world's governments collapsed, the corporations took control. Houston's Pulsystems has sent an expedition to the lost Martian colony of Frontera to search for survivors, but Reese, aging hero of the US space program, knows better. The colonists are not only alive; they have discovered a secret so devastating that the new rulers of Earth will stop at nothing to own it. But none of them have reckoned with Kane, tortured veteran of the corporate wars, whose hallucinatory voices are urging him to complete an ancient cycle of heroism and alter the destiny of the human race.

Fantastic spot-on sf of Mars and our own Earth
- Samuel Montgomery-Blinn "I'm a voracious audiobibliophile, mainly interested in speculative fiction, with the occasional mimetic fiction or non-fiction title sneaking in."
Mars needs women! ( Still ! )
Best...the performance by both readers but especially Gabrielle. She rocks this book. Goodness, owns the emotions, the intensity ( and there is that! ) and the story.
Least is the wimpy ending, but that is subjective.
I would for the performances alone.
This story is relatively derivative, and is dated in it's technology. That said, these 2 performers bring it to life, and the characters they inhabit ( esp. Gabrielle's ) walk through the listeners lives. Stunningly good.
Nah. Too derivative, and too dated.
All that said, a wonderful offering. Stefan is Mr. Mars, and his companion seems to be along for the journey. If you like Mars oriented SciFi with amazing reading, get this. Highly recommended, for the genre!
