    Description

    In a sequel to the much-praised Dogs of War, Honey the genetically engineered bear takes a ride in Jimmy the Martian's head and starts a revolution on the Red Planet.

    Mars. The red planet. A new frontier for humanity: a civilisation where humans can live in peace, lord and master of all they survey.

    But this isn't Space City from those old science-fiction books. It's more like Hell City, built into and from a huge crater. There's a big silk canopy over it, feeding out atmosphere as we generate it, little by little, because we can't breathe the air here.

    I guess it's a perfect place to live, if you want to live on Mars. At some point I must have wanted to live on Mars, because here I am. The money was supposed to be good, and how else was a working Joe like me going to get off-planet exactly? But I remember the videos they showed us - guys, not even in suits, watching robots and bees and Bioforms doing all the work - and they didn't quite get it right.

    Doesn't live up to the original

    Narration was good, despite some minor editing mistakes.

    Not Tchaikovsky's best writing. Although the portrayal of the demagogue as political parasite is interesting, the novel fails to engage me completely; it simply lacks the emotional weight of Rex's story. Decent world building of Mars and its inhabitants, and overall not a bad sci fi work. While it kept me entertained and I don't regret the purchase, this book is mostly just that: almost idle entertainment. Perhaps expecting it to live up to dogs of war isn't entirely fair, but I was hoping for more.

    Good Book, Good Author.

    Continues the dystopic scenario created in Dogs of War and puts the dilemma to a whole new level. Touches on moral and philosophical questions that also have been pondered by characters from other books (Children of Time) and does not fail to entertain.
