This started off great. The first chapter really pulled me in. A great opening sequence. Then the second chapter had a jarring twist I won't spoil. The story appears to settle in a little with the third chapter and becomes more about the characters. I am interested to see where this goes as it is not yet apparent to me. The chapters are short, but they are engaging. They keep you wanting more.

Gripped from the beginnig

Reviewed at: Chapter 2

Okay so I was back and forth on the beginning because I wasn't sure if this was going into horror comedy or scifi comedy or other and I  was very pleased to see that it went right the direction I wanted- colony management comedy. Now as someone who is a big fan of Martian politics, Mark Watney and Red/Green/Blue Mars, I have high hopes for this series. Mars appears to be an untapped gem that the company needs to exploit, and I hope business is good.
