It is the year 2063 and the Mars Colony is now ready to receive the first wave of civilian colonizers.
Helena Anderson and her family are one of the few chosen ones who will be part of humanity’s next grand project. But she feels no enthusiasm…
As the departure approaches, she realizes that she is about to make the biggest mistake of her life. She is torn apart by anxiety about leaving Earth forever, but she understands that there is nothing she can do.
The decision is irrevocable.
Engineer Emma Harrison has, on the other hand, no problem leaving Earth. Finally, her lifelong dream of Mars will come true.
But she has other problems.
Emma’s bad temper and blunt manner have made her many enemies on Earth and the question is whether she can escape these enemies even though she will soon be on another planet?
Nicolai Kovalev has been on Mars for over four years now. As the Supreme Commander of the Mars Colony, he controls everything with an iron fist. Every decision must go through him and nothing escapes his critical eye.
It is absolutely necessary to have it that way, according to Nikolai. Nothing is allowed to disturb the perfect balance he has created.
But some things are simply beyond any human control.
Because through the dark gulf of space a threat is approaching. A threat that no one could have foreseen…
…and suddenly all of humanity is at risk of extinction.
Soon the struggle for survival becomes the primary focus and the fates of Helena, Emma and Nikolai are woven together in a downward spiral where the line between right and wrong and between good and evil becomes very, very thin…
…if you want to read a novel where The Martian meets Lord of the Flies, then you should read Martian Law… /Fantasia Novus
…for me, Martian Law was a much more interesting story than Weir’s the Martian, due to less focus on advanced technology in detail and more focus on the plot. Martian Law is more about the individual/group’s development in an imaginary dystopian situation and the style reminds me of Margaret Atwood’s books… /In The Bookshelf
…the story is very skillfully constructed… with simple means you are drawn into the intrigue between a few captivating characters and suddenly it is impossible to put it down… /Nova Dreams
