Publisher's Summary

The truth of discovery is on mankind's horizon, a Red Horizon.

For nearly four long years, the world's superpowers have mobilized their people and resources in preparation for the next discovery, Mars.

The race against one another pales in comparison to the inherent dangers of travelling through the vastness of the cosmos, going where mankind has never gone before. Facing the hostile and challenging environment of space, and nations ready to do anything it takes to win, Richard, 'Rock' Crandon pulls his team together in an attempt to reach the alien technology on the red planet first, and discover the intent behind the alien species.

Will mankind tear itself apart in the name of discovery, or will the truth reveal something more sinister, the true intent of the aliens?

I enjoyed this book as I did book number 1

I read book one. I felt it was well written. I enjoyed the story but I felt that the writer should have covered more of the story. This story should be covered by 3 books! The writer is too verbose. Writing too much about what ever. Red Horizon was written the same way and in my opinion the next installment should be able to finish the story. If it does not, I will not buy the next. Writers who use this method of stretching a story need to write books that are 15 plus hours. Salvador Mercer. This story is not worth more then 3 credits!!

Yet another story about humans killing humans

Yes, this is a tale about human tribal warfare with all the usual knife twists and bombs, A mini WW1 with separate human "tribes" claiming "if we can't have it exclusively -no one will get it-"
Good narrator but the story is very shallow and un-imaginative as SCI-fi

Enjoyable Pulp

Engaging narrative, though a little slow to start. I did find the dialogue and interaction with the characters to be a little clunky and cliché. The writer has a habit of characters explaining stuff to each other that seems unlikely for the scenarios. However if you want a well constructed near future sci-fi that doesn't go too deep, this will be for you.

8/10

Mark Boyett delivers as usual the story extremely well... 10/10
I wish there would have been a bit more detail in the story. A repeated space race to Mars is a good and feasable story. The whole China angle though seems to me a bit extreme but hey. I am looking forward to the next installment.
