Overview

Thena's Boy is book three of The Sol Chronicles and it is the story of Mart. Mart is the young Prince of the Martian people who were sent into exile by the Venetian, Rand. The Mortans had become Martians but they were not the first. The true Martians were their four-legged companions who developed deep bonds with the humans and their fierce warrior cousins. A split occurred long ago between the two true branches and the friendly true Martians kept the humans safely away from their cousins.

Nothing had changed for the humans since their arrival on Mars. They continued to eke out an existence similar to what they had done on their arrival. Mart and his two cousins, Will and Robb, were determined to change that. With the help of their Martian companions - they succeeded.

Their success would serve to set the stage for all that would come to the rest of Sol's planetary system. They could not know the future consequences.

    To be continued........

    This one, like the others released so far in this series, captivates the imagination of the reader. While relating a complete story of it's own, this book also ties the past to the future. It is not like a movie, but a television series. That is a good way to say a lot, a little at a time. Definitely not boring. Waiting for what is next with great anticipation. The book is complete, but the story is to be continued.

    He has done it again!

    Donald Thompson has taken us to the next step in The Sol Chronicles. Introducing canines as the first Martians just goes to show what kind of imagination we are enjoying. Using the fabled Martian canals as the back drop for his story is pure fictional genius.

    I knew that dogs are special

    Don Thompson was brilliant with his depiction of dogs as the first real Martians. Using the old myth about the fabled Martian canals as his storyline shows his powerful imagination at work.

    A review by Jody Olson

    Thena¿s Boy is the third book in Donald D. Thompson¿s ten part series of The Sol Chronicles. This is the story of Mart, a young man and the future King of Mars. I liked this book. Thena¿s Boy was easier to read than The Final Solician or The Telpin Man. In the previous books, the story line dealt with three or more societies and the reader had to pay attention to the flow of the book and the intertwining of characters. In Thena¿s Boy, Donald narrowed the story line down to one race, the Martians. In doing so, Donald was able to explore each character more deeply, bringing forth strengths and weaknesses of all. At the same time, Donald introduced a new race and, once again, implemented the ability to communicate telepathically. I also noticed several times when Donald called on his experiences from his submarine career. Mart has a dream to irrigate the planet and with the help of Thena and the other members of her race, the goal is eventually accomplished and the Martians are able to spread out. Thena¿s Boy continues the wanderlust of the tribes as the space ship; Venussa is found and used to further populate the galaxy. I am looking forward to book four, Armageddon. I am sure Donald will continue to weave an excellent tail of wonder, excitement and surprise.
