Publisher's Summary

The planet Mars has become an epic battleground where mighty armies clash in a seemingly endless struggle. Pride, politics, and greed have ignited the spark of war, drawing a vast web of alliances into a bitter conflict. Artillery fire and dropships fill the skies while combat marines endure the savage grind of futuristic trench warfare.

The propaganda media machine has painted the conflict as one in which fortune and glory await the daring. Young men everywhere flock to the various banners, unprepared for the grim reality of war on the distant planet. Harlo, one such young man, never wanted to be a deep sea diver, and decides that signing up to be a contract soldier is a better alternative to life as a low-wage algae scraper.

Mars is blood red for a reason.

    What about Persephone Rose’s performance did you like?

    Good job by Persephone Rose


    Any additional comments?


    The story was confusing in many levels. Since this is a free copy I tried to finish listening so I can post a review.
    I received a review copy via AudioBookBoom.

    I have an extensive collection of audio books dating back to the 1980's. Most are cassette tapes, some CDA and some MP3 disk.

    Story
    "Squid killer on Mars"
    What was most disappointing about Isaac Stone’s story?

    The story was just bad on so many levels. I'm sorry Isaac, but everything from the premise (Earth using Mars as a coliseum complete with flaming swords) to character development (was none) to plot (rather fight giant squid then war on Mars) left me shaking my head.


    Which character – as performed by Persephone Rose – was your favorite?

    Persephone Rose Was a great reader/narrator he changed voice, pitch, inflection and what not to help distinguish the different characters. His clear voice and pronunciation made the difference between finishing this story and quitting after 10 minutes.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was short.


    Any additional comments?

    “I received a free copy of this audiobook from the narrator and chose to review it.”

    Story
    "Sci fi colony wars at their best"

    A tale of the future when the world has unified Into only a few major factions and they have now taken to the stars and they do battle in a standard conventional ground war to prevent nuclear holocausts across the worlds. The various factions are locked into their specialization unless they are volunteering for the war class. This story of a deep sea diver trying to escape being killed by a kraken by going to war. Great battle scenes. Well developed world and the last five minutes of the story are amongst the best. Great story and great narration. Highly recommend. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "World War Mars is a fast paced and enjoyable"
    Where does World War Mars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    World War Mars is a fast paced and enjoyable Sci-Fi war story with an interesting political background where earth has been split into 3 superpowers fighting over Mars. Whilst very enjoyable I would have liked a little more character interaction as you only got to know the main character and I can’t help but feel that more could have been made of the training to aid with this. The action was gripping giving an image of a futuristic World War 1 with trench warfare, artillery bombardments and hand to hand combat, yet it did not explore any of the emotions the characters were feeling during action scenes which is a shame.
    The narrator did a good job, each character’s voice was distinctive enough to know who was speaking without any sounding odd.
    Please note that I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
