I've thoroughly enjoyed getting immersed in this story. From start to end it has taken us on a journey to Mars and back again (more than once) intertwining the lives of people on 2 planets so different from each other yet so familiar because of its people.
I loved how Earths population reacted when faced with the news about life on Mars. The downfall of Lucca was eagerly awaited. I did think it was a bit of an anti-climax though. She went out with more of a whimper than a bang...not quite what I expected from such a big character. The whole plan of how to get her out of office & the public eye after her dimise was absolutely brilliant and I did not see that coming. (Spoiler alert...I can't say any more...you'll have to read it).
Life back on Mars...with the atmosphere coming around slowly but surely...was exciting. It almost made you want to be part of it. I did wonder what happened to that other spot on Mars, from the previous book, that one of the scientists from the Ag dept was working on. He had the beginnings of something wonderful and I was hoping to hear more about it in this book.
The way the whole story ended was also really well done. Again...I don't want to give it away...but there was some real closure. I felt like I was saying goodbye to friends that I would never see again but the way Cidney followed through into the future ith the characters as least left me feeling like everything was going to be OK.
Well done Cidney, and thank you for an unforgettable st

I started this series because the first book was free. Within 2 days I bought the rest of the series - and I am so glad I did! This series has lovely proportion of suspense, action, drama, loyalty between characters, danger and just a touch of romance. Very heartwarming and uplifting.Was this review helpful?

I've been eagerly awaiting the final book in the Saving Mars series since I stumbled on the books earlier this year and read them all in a week. Book 6, Mars Rising, didn't disappoint. What a great ending to a great series!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Another spectacular book in Cidney Swanson’s Saving Mars series.
Rising Mars was definitely one of the best of the series (maybe even my favorite). Lots of action and I could really picture some of the scenes happening. More than once I was wondering who’d play Jessamyn in the movie (Netflix series?).
Jess and Pavel work to keep their team out of the clutches of the Evil Chancellor Lucca while trying win the support of the rest of Earth so that they can save Mars. The Life on Mars series of videos are something I'd love to watch!
Mars is on the brink of extinction due to the limited resources (and problems) from living on Mars AND from the ships with the missiles that Chancellor Lucca has sent to destroy the inhabitants of Mars. To be clear, people living on Mars are called Marisians, NOT Martians.
It’s book six of the series, if you haven’t been reading, you won’t know what I’m talking about if I give more detail (it’s time to start reading them now); if you have been reading, you don’t want me to give anything away, do you?
