He went to Mars alone ... but he wasn't alone when he arrived.

Mike Lane journeys over 100 million miles to Mars, to officially become the first man to make it on the Red Planet. After eight months of space travel, he arrives safely; only to have his space craft explode within six minutes after landing. It turns out he isn't alone on Mars ... and he isn't welcome.

Swedish-based company, The Corporation, planned to send a full colony crew to Mars. Before they would be allowed to do this, they had to prove that humans could indeed survive on the red planet alone. Sent on a proof of concept mission, we meet our everyday hero: Mike Lane. The plan was set for Mike to live on Mars by himself for six years, until the first full colony team was sent; however, as with anything in life, plans changed ...

I enjoyed the subtle twists within your story; just when I was sure I had it all figured out ... well I didn't always see "What would come next" and that get me intrigued to find out more. - R. McSorely

First comes love, then comes aliens, marriage, a baby ... and if that's not enough, the North Koreans show up.

As Mike is getting settled into his new surroundings, he is quickly befriended by Hlef; the beautiful, sexy, and witty alien-human hybrid; part of the clan of good aliens who are aligned with the American government, known as the Eben. Hlef helps him get settled in, and teaches him the ropes on Mars. They both quickly learn that love exceeds the boundaries of race, and that while they are quite different, they are also quite the same.

Meanwhile, the North Koreans have an agenda of their own. Bitter over Western ways, and lack of respect from the rest of the world, they engage in a partnership with the evil aliens, the Eridani. The North Koreans hope to build a colony on Mars as well, in order to dominate the planet … with the help of their new alien friends.

Then, out of nowhere, looming in the dark shadows of the galaxy, an ancient enemy of the Eben wait patiently for the perfect time to strike, and unleash an interplanetary war like none other. It is often said that revenge is “a dish best served cold”, and the Kuabatay have waited ten thousand years for dinnertime to arrive.

She's beautiful.
She's skilled.
She's deadly.
She's pissed.

... And she's looking for
the alien that
killed her mom.

Fala and her bestie, Tee, are taking names and kicking ass. On a mission from the Martian Defense Force and the Eben Protective Services, the Kuabatay leadership are dying under their hands.

Purely by chance, Fala and Tee come across a small prison in the jungle of Eridani Prime.

But, was it purely by chance?

Letting herself be captured, Fala Lane finds a single prisoner, someone thought dead for twenty-five long years. She's not worried about getting out of the prison because Tee is waiting outside, and ready to save them ... and isn't that what best friends are for?

From Mars, to Eridani Prime, to Proxima Centauri, and back to Earth. Fala & Tee's story is a tour-de-force of explosive action and heart wrenching agony as the near galaxy becomes a two-woman battleground...

...and Blitowyn of Chernasai is in their way.

Join Fala, the daughter of Mike & Hlef Lane, in the hair raising, fiery conclusion to the On Mars trilogy.
