Mars is the new frontier for humanity, as we launch an epic saga of inspiring planetary exploration set in the award-winning Terraforming Mars boardgame

Mars, 2316. The recently created Terraforming Committee arbitrates the dramatic development of Mars by powerful rival corporations. When a rogue asteroid crashes into a research center and kills its lone technician, the fragile balance between corporations is shattered. The World Government’s investigation into the accident reveals a multitude of motives, while a corporation insider stumbles on a dark conspiracy. Two Martians with very different agendas must navigate a trail of destruction and treachery to uncover the truth and expose those responsible, before Mars falls to Earth’s corruption. As lines blur between progress and humanity, Mars itself remains the biggest adversary of all.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A very intense book dealing with both science fiction and Mystery genres. A good introduction to the Terraforming Mars world-setting without bogging down the reader with game lore. A strong narrative with relatable and enjoyable characters. Good mystery to the plot and a well-rounded story that offers closure while leaving enough threads to be picked up should the series continue." - Inquisitor Jenn

"In the Shadow of Deimos is a fantastic tale for anyone who is looking for a fix of Terraforming Mars without the time to play the game or a good sci-fi story about survival not only of a new and harsh environment but the corruption of those in power." - What You Tolkien About

"How can a mere earthling say no to an armchair trip to the red planet. Who has that kind of restraint? And why would you want to? It’s a dream destination." - Bandit on Goodread

"I came away from this book wanting to learn more, to discover more about the kinds of people that would make their homes on Mars, the corporations that would try to alter it and the science they use, and to spend more time on this strangely beautiful world. I can't wait to see what else gets made in this franchise." - Trans-Scribe
