About the book:

The return of NASA’s first manned mission to Mars was supposed to be a momentous day. But when the crew loses touch with ground control before entry, things look bleak. Safe after a treacherous landing, the crew emerges to discover the unthinkable–every man, woman, child, and animal has vanished without a trace. Alone now on their home planet, the crew sets out to discover where everyone has gone–and how to get them back–only to discover they may not be as alone as they thought.

My review:

THIS is an awesome book, I’ve always been one of those people who enjoys an “end of the world” movie. The Day After Tomorrow (an adventure type film about the second ice age) is one of my favorite movies.

It starts out INTENSE, this is not a book you want to start right before going to bed, you will want to keep reading until the rooster crows! The first expedition to Mars arrives back on earth only to find…. absolutely no one there to greet them. Every man, woman, child and even animals- are gone. They are the only ones left, then again, perhaps not. The astronauts then take it upon themselves to find out what happened to everyone on the planet.

I’m a sucker for a story (be it film, print, tv, whatever) about humans conquering a certain “Evil” and surviving hardship. This book includes all that and then some! Pick it up, and get ready for an insane ride!

Thanks to Bethany House for providing this book for me to review!
