It takes extraordinary humans to colonize an alien planet.
The new human colony on the planet Pollux 4 is a disaster. Barry, a new arrival to the planet, suspects the leadership is to blame. Mismanagement is rampant amongst the entrenched leadership clique. Something is drastically wrong with the way the colony was assembled.
Persecuted as malcontents by the governing body, who see them as a threat to their positions, privileges and especially their egos, Barry and his fellow dissenters have to escape this rule by the mediocre. They decide to leave the main colony and brave the hazards of the newly terraformed, alien planet on their own.
An action adventure and an exploration of an alien world.
Adult language and situations.
Any additional comments?
I really liked the characters, they were so real each with a distinctive personality. The story starts off in a depressing situation but that was to set the scene for the group to correct the state of affairs. The writer and narrator did such a good job of describing the surroundings and actions I felt like I was walking with them and facing the challenges myself. A good action adventure novel.

I'd like to see this novel turned into a mini series. Great characters, interesting setting and an attention grabbing situation and story line.

I listened to this book for almost 2 hours. There wasn't a character I could relate to. No one was doing what would be needed. It was totally unrealistic. The reader did OK, but the story stinks. I returned it.
