Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: This book reminded me of The Martian in reverse.  That instead of someone being left on Mars its people on Mars dealing with an issue on Earth.  It was a very neat twist and I have to say that it was an awesome book.  This book was very well paced and I loved the cover.  It had a set of diverse characters and I really enjoyed how they each dealt with the issue on Earth in their own way.  The story was so vast you could tell that the author did a lot of research into the topic.  Which came out on the page perfectly.  The one other thing that I thought worked out well was the twist that happened.  I didn't see it coming and it worked so well.  

If you are a fan of the Martian like I am and other science fiction stories totally check this one out! Now I only have one question......Wheres my movie?

“For lovers of Andy Weir’s The Martian, here’s a true hard-science-fiction tale set on the red planet — a terrific blend of high tech and high tension, of science and suspense, of character and crisis.”
— Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award–winning author of Red Planet Blues

“Post-apocalyptic disaster meets fractured utopian space exploration in this terrifying tale, which Cawdron (Anomaly) sets in a scientific outpost on Mars . . . This tense cat-and-mouse game plays off fears . . . to satisfying result.” — Publishers Weekly
