From NASA to the Mars Society, real-life visionaries plan to send settlers to Mars. Go today in science fiction, starting with a fragile foothold and reading on into the future. From the first twelve colonists struggling with a strange illness through the generations, follow one settler in each book as they face danger and build a life on Mars.
Glory on Mars - Emma wants to explore in her robotic walkabout suit, but something is terribly wrong as a strange illness threatens the settlement's future.
Born on Mars - Jake didn't ask to be born on Mars, into a failing colony. Perhaps he can save his friends and family by contacting new arrivals, but an earthly rival sent them, and they're half a planet away.
Hermit on Mars - Sig's life is falling apart when his mother calls for help. She lives with prospectors in the Tartarus Mountains, and the mysterious hermit no longer ensures their survival.
Water on Mars - Bliss thinks this is the best time to be Marsborn. She leaves her tiny burg behind for the biggest city on the planet, but her new boss is crazy, and threats inside and outside of the colony menace her plans.
Storm on Mars - Zeker joins the elite Tower Guilds to change Mars. But his neuroplasticity treatments may have failed, leaving his own impulses as his biggest challenge. Thrown out of the Towers, Zeker lands in a lawless burg filled with desperate people. Farther from his goals than ever, he must find a way back to the Towers, because more than his project is in peril.

Readers loved individual Colony on Mars books:
The characters were rich and dynamic. It was interesting reading about their environment and adaptations. The book is well thought out, quick paced, and a very enjoyable read. I really can’t wait to read more from this author. Mary E. Young
As with the first book, Glory on Mars, author Kate Rauner really makes you feel as if you have taken a trip to Mars yourself. Catherine Mesick
Many Science Fiction books tend to be more fiction than science, but in this book I found both. The plot is never boring, and the science is rock solid. Kundenrezensionen
An unnervingly realistic venture into the triumphs and challenges that frontier colonists will experience when mankind reaches Mars. Andrew J Chamberlain
