Publisher's Summary

Revolution has come to Mars. Max Lupine has been secretly creating a virus to pacify and enslave the populace. However, a mining accident triggers a premature release of the virus and sets off a pandemic that causes the majority of the populace to become mindless killers. Beverly Gibson, lead scientist of the Delta Dig, tries to rally a resistance not only to battle the infected that roam the populated living domes of Mars, but to stop Max Lupine from consolidating his despotic power. Beverly is assisted by Edgar Lourdes who is the only man on the planet with the ability to diagnose and combat the virus. He must discover how the virus was created and how to save the millions of people living on Mars. Recently arrived Thomas Stargell must battle across the Martian landscape to find Beverly's resistance group and help them break Max Lupine's control of the communications on Mars. He must attempt to contact Earth and hope they will come to the aid of the beleaguered Martians. When Lupine discovers how to control the infected the stage is set for a final showdown to find out who will control the future of Mars. Beverly's rebels and Lupine's forces meet in a climactic planet wide showdown that will cost many their lives and force the people of Mars to become revolutionaries or find themselves under the control of a madman.

A New world for us to explore

Would you consider the audio edition of The Dawn of Mars to be better than the print version?

Yes, I like to cook, drive, clean and sometimes listen while I'm at work. With a book I'd have to put it down to get anything done. Plus a good narrator can bring a book to life that I might not have been able to get into otherwise.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dawn of Mars?

When the star ships showed up and were threatening to start a war on the planet Mars if the major didn't give up command of the planet. That was pretty intense. I was glad the author decided to go with the reasonable solution for the captain of the ship in the lead.

Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favorite?

All the main characters were pretty intense. Max Lupine was the bad guy trying to take over. He was a believable character. I can imagine a top official doing what ever it takes to be 1# and take control of everything.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No only because it was a little long for that. But I did enjoy the book and would listen to a book 2 when it comes out.

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audio book at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

Its ok as far as a zombie story goes..interesting twist...thought it was going to be more exciting...but it wasn't...Roberto's narration was good....and overall a decent book...just not going into my fave list....Basically a virus was manufactured to make mine workers more productive, and it goes terribly wrong...the man who does this is the head representative of Mars Max Lupine decides to try and cover his tracks by cutting off all communication with earth and starting a war...he then decides just to demolish most of Mars...well a group of people, including scientists and military get involved and save the day!

Thank you Audiobookblast(dot)com
