Red Desert - Point of No Return (English Edition) eBook Kindle
She entered the Martian desert, all alone.
Where is she going?
What secret is she hiding?
Thirty years after the Mars exploration mission Hera, whose crew died in mysterious circumstances, the ensuing political issues that slowed NASA’s race to conquer space have finally ended. This time the five members of the new Isis mission will not travel the 400 million kilometres for a short visit. This time they are destined to become the first colonisers of the Red Planet.
The science fiction series “Red Desert”, set in the near future, includes four books.
The first one, “Point of No Return”, is a novella.
In what looks like a suicide attempt, Swedish exobiologist Anna Persson, crew member of the Isis, secretly leaves Station Alpha at the crack of dawn to travel deep into the Martian desert in a pressurised rover.
As she journeys to the limit of her two day oxygen supply, she shows us memories of events from her past leading up to the mission. Little by little, as time and oxygen run out, she reveals the real Anna.
Whatever her goal, wherever it is, will Anna reach her destination?
The second book is “Red Desert - People of Mars” (a novel).

--- This is the first book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---

Which is a pity, because the writing is good, and I was intrigued by the main character's past life, giving the motivations for taking a one-way ticket to Mars with too small a group for safety.
But it isn't only the setting, the spectacular atmosphere, or the plot twists that made me turn page after page without breathing; I felt a complete identification with Anna, the protagonist. She's the core of the story—her actions, her feelings, and her choices. Through flashback the author tells us of Anna's painful past, her difficult relationship with her father and her lost love. She's so real and human even though she's a brilliant scientist; her personality is as strong as her abilities in this wild and danguerous world.
The author's style is modern and fluid, no one word out of place, and is able to convey the complex topic in a very simple way.
Anna is a Swedish astronaut who, 30 years after a failed manned mission attempted to land on Mars, is part of a follow up mission of five people - she decides to make a one way journey and the story goes from there...
