“A cosmic coming-of-age novel… enthralling everyman heroics.”—Paul Di Filippo, SciFi.com

“Mars sucks.” And if anyone’s allowed to say it, Ray Garcia-Strickland is, since his father was one of the first men to set foot there. Ray’s father is now the manager of the Red Thunder, one of the swankiest hotels on overdeveloped Mars. And Ray has seen his share of gravity-dependent Earthies. Which doesn’t stop him from fearing the worst when Earth is struck by an unknown object, causing a massive tsunami. Living high on his father’s glory was okay, but now Ray must literally come down to Earth—and help solve one of its greatest mysteries…

Baker & Taylor
The son of one of the first explorers of Mars, Ray Garcia-Strickland is tired of the overdevelopment and tourists there, and when Earth is struck by a mysterious object, he is forced to return to Earth to help solve the mystery.

I was really looking forward to reading this book, thinking it would be a continuation of the previous book, Red Thunder. I was disappointed. It does somewhat continue the story of the original characters but I didn't really get involved as I did with Red Thunder. The first half of this book is about a world-wide disaster on Earth and trying to find family in the middle of all the chaos. Then it switches back to Mars. If you haven't read the previous book, the second half of this one seems like an afterthought. I also didn't care for the way the story with Jubal was wrapped up because there really wasn't a resolution. I am hoping the next book in the series, Rolling Thunder will fill in some of the many gaps.
