Overview

Earth is dead, destroyed by a barrage of meteors. What was left of the population has escaped to Mars and colonized it as humanities new home.

Lunara, a small colony on Earth’s moon, is charged with catching and mining meteors for desperately needed minerals. But the deep-seated human thirst for domination is not easily defeated, nor is the capacity for deceit and betrayal. All it needs is a powerful catalyst, a prize valuable enough to risk plunging mankind into another destructive war.

Parker McCloud and his friends, Seth and Chloe, are caught up in a violent series of events when Lunara is invaded. On Mars, Parker, Seth, Chloe, and the crew of the Protector attempt to sort out who is responsible, where the tide of suspicion swings back and forth between Aethpis and Zephyria.

In the end, we see barbarism by the leaders of Mars, great courage by the crew of the Protector, and immense valor by the military on Lunara in adventure one in an exciting new series.

    I found this book through @FreeBookDude on Twitter. When I first

    I found this book through @FreeBookDude on Twitter. When I first read the title, I thought it would be some kind of deep space young adult romance, and I was about to discount it because of that. But I must confess, I judged a book by its cover, and it intrigued me. I like Sci-Fi, but I'd never read one written in my lifetime, and the description on Amazon looked interesting, so I picked it up.




    The world that Davenport has created is very well fleshed out and impressive, and the story he has imagined in this book is perfectly believable. Lunara is a mining colony on Earth's moon, under the auspices of a dual-government on man's new home, Mars - since Earth is no longer inhabitable. There's plenty of political intrigue in the story as Lunara is invaded and captured and the lead characters need to find out who is behind the invasion, and why.




    It's mostly the characters that let the book down, though. They're kind of bland and uninteresting, and there's not enough to differentiate them. For the most part, they all seem to speak in exactly the same way, and act in exactly the same way. They also seem to all be rather arrogant and easily embarrassed: they "smirk" often, in situations which hardly call for humour, much less arrogant, condescending humour. They're also frequently chagrined - I guess that's a common thing about over-arrogant people; they're easily humiliated. But they don't seem to take anything seriously, and often have time to have long dialogues when the story wants us to believe they could die at any moment.




    And then there are the characters' names: Seth and Chloe (obviously), Parker, Jan, Eammon. These are all characters I would expect to find in a typical American college soap-opera. I'm sure this was by design, of course, since I think the book is targeted at American young adults. Still, I found it difficult to take them seriously. And "Jan" was even worse! This is obviously not the author's fault (how would he know?), but where I come from, "Jan" is a man's name, and quite a common one at that! In the story, Jan is wife to Lunara's commander, Ty, and especially in the early stages of the book, I couldn't help but picturing her as a gay Afrikaner! ;-)




    The book also contains a noticeable amount of typo's, missing quotation marks, and grammatical errors. These get more numerous towards the end; it's almost as if the author found it difficult to contain his excitement at the prospect of finishing the book!




    It wasn't a bad read, though, and I enjoy the setting Davenport has created, so I'll be picking up the next instalment in the series to see if it gets any better.

    Good Story

    This book is not high literature, but it is a great novel for escaping everyday life. Great mix of action, politics and a splash of romance. Just wish the other books were free as well!

    Here's another author that I follow on twitter and that follows

    Here's another author that I follow on twitter and that follows me. I
    read the book because the title immediately snagged my attention. I
    figured Lunara meant it had something to do with space. The description
    mentions Seth and Chloe's irregular abilities, and so I knew this would
    be my type of book. Opening up, some basic information about this era in
    humanity's destiny is explained. The need to flee earth after it became
    unlivable, colonizing Mars,and some of the history after that. I like
    this explanation. It wasn't so overly technical that I couldn't
    understand it or that it bored me. It was just enough to give a basic
    understanding of the world. As we're introduced to the characters, some
    of their faults became immediately evident. Seth is hotheaded and
    immature. Hatred of Mars can blind him. He's fiercely overprotective and
    stubborn. Chloe has a softer nature and clearly loves Seth. Unlike him,
    she tries to release her anger and hatred, wanting to move on with life.
    Gwen is nice, but clearly in love with Seth and friends with Chloe.
    Something of a princess of Mars, it's revealed she was banished to the
    colony of Lunara which is apparently close to earth and is in charge of
    stopping more meteors from striking it. She also clearly has daddy
    issues. Eamonn is interesting since he's the captain of the main ship
    they use for mining meteors, the Protector, and has guilt for leaving
    the woman he loved behind on Mars. Ty and Jan are a married couple,
    something like parental figures for Seth and Chloe, since Ty is in
    charge of Lunara. Parker is apparently a bit of a technical genius and
    fiercely devoted to Seth and Chloe. Right off, the drama begins as the
    mysterious Mars Medical group is so interested in Seth and Chloe that
    they send their top scientist to conduct a physical. The two manage to
    avoid it because of a mission to stop a meteor. On their attempt to
    return to Lunara, they find the base taken over and are forced to return
    to Mars. The return to Mars makes things interesting because of the
    conflict that rises among the crew. Seth's hatred blinds him to any
    virtues, Gwen declares her love, Chloe begins to pull away from Seth,
    and everyone becomes distracted by their own problems. But when things
    don't add up on Mars, the crew comes together to find out the truth. And
    the conspiracy that is revealed is quite a radical twist that left me
    wanting to read more. The two colonies of Mars have been at peace, but
    the leader of one desires to become leader of all and has become quite
    obsessed. As he seizes control of the planet and imprisons Seth and
    Chloe, the crew teams up with a delegate from the other kingdom to take
    back Lunara, their home. Seth and Chloe are freed by Gwen and manage to
    escape. I was especially pleased reading the battle scenes. They were
    wonderfully detailed and I felt like I could totally picture this. My
    only slight problem with this is that at points, things were too
    technical for me personally. But overall this was a great story and I
    will continue to read the rest of the series.
