In this continuation of the story line of The Red Planet Trilogy, author William Graham weaves a compelling tale of political intrigue as Dr. Jane Starling, the first president of the newly formed Martian Republic, takes office. Her political foes at the corporations, which founded the colonies on Mars, are aligned against her and devise ways to sabotage her political agenda. Against this highly charged political drama, the common citizens of Mars must make decisions about their own lives.
This fast-paced drama not only takes us into the future but casts a bright light on many contemporary events. It's a story with universal appeal and meaning.

Take up where The Red Planet Trilogy left off, and into the first years of the new Mars President. Follow different characters around her as her presidency is challenged, taken over, and then fought for in the end.
The narration, like the trilogy; done by Richard Wilson was great. His voice really lends a hand to this story. It is definitely studio quality work done by an excellent narrator. I will be looking for more books by Mr. Wilson in the future.
This novella was good, it was great, but it was damn good. If you are a fan of political issues and political fights for power, this book is for you. If you haven’t read/listened to the original three novellas, you will be able to follow this but will be missing BIG pieces of it (the murder case, the company, and a few other smaller details). I would recommended reading/listening in order. In order, these stories told a jumpy view of the Martian planet colonies existence from early creation to full blown independence. Overall, I would rate the story 4 stars, just as I did with the Red Planet Trilogy. I enjoyed the series, and will read more if more become available, but it just felt like it was missing something.
