This book was amazing! Deborah Jackson spent five years writing and researching this book, as well as went back to college to learn more about genetics. She went Back. To. School. That is some real dedication, and it completely shows in her writing. Furies’ Bog is a fast paced Science Fiction Thriller combined with a Historical Mystery. A combination of Michael Crichton, Steve Berry, and Dan Brown, three authors I enjoy very much. There are basically three story lines, including one on Mars, that intertwine and come together at the end perfectly. At first, I wouldn’t say I was confused with the Mars story, I just kept trying to figure out how is was going to coincide with the other two. I kept thinking the people on Mars were going to actually be what came of the people on Earth. Or maybe, they put the bog people on our planet, but I was completely wrong in the direction that Jackson took the story. Jackson gives the reader so much scientific and historical information about bog people, other cultures here on earth, and about Mars. But she doesn’t in a way that isn’t dry and makes for very interesting reading. Jackson knows how to write a Thriller, since I found myself try to read faster and faster to see what would happen next. After you finish reading this review, you need to buy a copy of this book.

Two different tales playing out on two different worlds, connected by history, science and the greatest secret ever kept from mankind. THE FURIES’ BOGby Deborah Jackson is a well-written, extremely detailed tale of the connection between Earth and Mars, humanity and the mysteries of life locked away in seemingly unrelated places. Felicity Cratchett hadn’t asked to be in on one of the most incredible finds in the history of man, but she was as she discovers mummies that will link the subpolar regions of a Canadian park to ancient Rome and even Botswana. Have we always misunderstood the evolution of man? Where did we come from? Are these bogs remnants of the primordial soup we hear of or are they the missing link to the truth of life? Millions of miles away, three astronauts are on Mars, nursing it’s “terraforming” stage. Life is being cultivated. The atmosphere of Mars is still too toxic to support life, but now transplanted algae and plants are being grown, sending their expelled oxygen into the air. Buried deep within a cave are survival supplies, and so much more. Lucas Wilson knows the secrets this hidden lair holds and he is about to share it with his unsuspecting companions. But what will the consequences be? What Felicity has found and what Lucas knows provides the direct connection between the eons of the past and survival for the future. Genetics will play the starring role and the surprises are the advancements made. Is the world ready to know the truth? Or will Mars become the evolutionary miracle of the ages? Deborah Jackson has created the true science fiction lover’s dream. No little green men, no three-fingered aliens devouring all that lives on Earth. Instead, there is a fictional scientific take that addresses the eternal questions of the galaxy and if we are truly alone! Are we the copycats or the original lifeforms? Would the birth of Mars as a viable planet mean the death of Earth? Ms. Jackson has done an amazing job at presenting her tale, fleshing it out with human frailties, mysteries and relationships. If you even have one ounce of an interest in science fiction-type reading, this is a wonderful way to exercise that interest! I received this copy from Deborah Jackson in exchange for my honest review.

A great book for readers of all ages, I highly recommend it.  This book is a suspenseful sci-fi mystery that will keep you guessing. The plot pulls you in and will keep you reading 'just one more page'.  The action of the book takes place in Canada's North and on planet Mars. As you might guess, both areas are being researched and exploited by Mega business - Canada's North for diamonds and Mars as a source for food and minerals. These events take place sometime in the near future; its the reader who will find out when. Deborah Jackson is an eloquent writer and her book is a pleasure to read. I look forward to reading more of her work in the future!
