It wasn't the first time Lieutenant Travis Daniels had been far from his wife and son. Leading an elite team on countless missions, dodging death at every turn-it was what he was trained to do. And returning to his family was always his driving force... but this time might be different. Imprisoned for an unsanctioned intrusion into a hot zone, Travis and his elite team took a deal to assist in the colonization of Mars to evade the death penalty. While stationed there, Travis' only source of sanity were the brief video conversations he was allowed with his family. When the last transmission received showed choppy images of the city in darkness and blurs of humanoid creatures running through the streets, Travis and his team must decide to either stay on Mars or find a way back to his family-unknowing of the hell that Earth has become.
What a rush! This book captivated me from the first page and kept me enthralled until “To Be Continued!” with its action, suspense and otherworldly scenery.
Travis Daniels and his team are stuck on Mars. After a mission gone bad, they are basically forced to either assist with the colonizing of said planet, or face the death penalty. His wife Annie is back on earth raising their son Logan, when all hell breaks loose, literally! The last transmission Travis and his team receive from earth shows the planet is being annihilated by monsters that have crawled through cracks in the planet’s surface. The situation on Mar’s deteriorates quickly as Travis and his team try to find a way back home.
I tore through this book, going back and forth between Travis on Mars trying to get home to protect his family. All the while dealing with a mad man intent on keeping them right where they are. And Annie on earth who is fiercely protective of her son, and will do anything to keep them alive. Amazing character development throughout the story not only for the main characters, but secondary characters as well. And what the hell are these monsters? It’s very the bad side of Journey to the Center of the Earth with these things. There are smaller scouts and larger killers, for lack of a better word, and they seem to have a pack mentality and an uncanny ability to communicate.
I anxiously await the second book in this series! If you are a fan of horror, monsters, strong ass leading ladies and some intense action this is a must read for you.
