Product description

Product Description

Armageddon is up for Auction...

It is the twenty-third century and humanity has colonized the solar system. A once dominant Earth licks its wounds after losing its lunar colony in a war of independence. The Terra now preoccupied with their own civil war, trade and commerce flourishes between Earth's other former colonies. Corporations and planetary governments all vie for dominance.

Dr. Melanie Destin's life is a mess. After losing her job as a medic aboard an old freighter, she is desperate. In an attempt to start over, she accepts an interplanetary salvage job that will pay her enough to rebuild a new life on Mars. When she learns the real purpose of the mission is to recover an apocalyptic virus, everything begins to unravel...

Governments compete with corporations to control the pathogen which the expedition leader plans to sell to the highest bidder. Meanwhile, the company that hired her wants to eliminate anyone who knows anything...

With her life in danger and not knowing who she can trust, Mel must find a way to keep the virus out of the wrong hands. If she fails, billions will die...

The Ares Weapon is the first page turning book in the sci fi thriller Mars Ascendant series, which explores the consequences of humanity's exploration and colonization of the solar system in the distant future.

If you like a science fiction series with a strong femaie lead character, ruthless villains, mutants, clones and AI, you'll love this series.
