Sixteen-year-old Tristan has known that he and his family would be on Mars One, the first voyage to another planet, since he was twelve. He is mostly excited to experience history-in-the-making, but that doesn’t make leaving his life behind any easier. After all, Mars is, without a doubt, a one-way trip. --Cressida

Sixteen year old Tristan has known he was moving to Mars since he was ten. He and his family will be on Mars One, the first voyage of mankind to another planet. Tristan's even a trained engineer and is partly, mostly, excited to be part of history-in-the-making. But that's not making leaving his girlfriend, his love, behind on Earth any easier -- because Mars is, without a doubt, a one way trip. --Cressida

Description


Go on the adventure of a lifetime with a teen and his family after they are selected to colonize Mars in this thrilling new novel from multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry.

Tristan has known that he and his family were going to be on the first mission to colonize Mars since he was twelve years old, and he has been training ever since. However, knowing that he would be leaving for Mars with no plan to return didn't stop him from falling in love with Izzy.

But now, at sixteen, it's time to leave Earth, and he's forced to face what he must leave behind in exchange for an uncertain future. When the news hits that another ship is already headed to colonize Mars, and the NeoLuddite terrorist group begins threatening the Mars One project, the mission's purpose is called into question. Is this all worth it?
