MARS4

By ValorB

Action / Scifi

Introduction

Welcome to a World unlike our Own, Mobius.

This is a World filled with Ancient Lore, Magic and Adventure. A World brimming with Unique Races and Civilizations.

A World, for over seventeen years, has known nothing but Conflict, Depraved Villainy, and Unflinching Heroism.

The likes of Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles 'Tails' Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna call this world home. They defend it against all comers who threaten its peace and stability. Against overwhelming odds and in the face of such unparalleled evil that only they could hope to defeat it.

But this story is not about the Super Heroes of Mobius.

This story is about a Soldier. One of the few hundreds who could remember the smoke and fire of the Great War. A Veteran who was captured, humiliated and robotized by Ivo Robotnik at the start of his reign.

This is a story about how a Mobiun who has sacrificed everything he wanted to be, for the betterment on a Kingdom of Acorn. Only now to have that Kingdom become a Republic.

The level of disgust Jerry felt only matched his hatred for Overlanders.

Jerry. That was his name. Corporal Jerry Tyson. A Veteran Scout of the Great War, decorated for valor and bravery.

That was what the shadowy MARS Program was interested in.

When he walked into the Bar, he was already flagged as a potential recruit. His military record pulled for review. What known associates he had questioned.

Before they were even finished with their inquires, they knew they had exactly what they looking for.

Someone who was skilled. Someone who was adaptable. Trainable. Unrelenting and Fearless. He had no immediate family, and what 'friends' he did have were still in the Republic of Acorn in which he despised.

They had no idea where he was, nor, at the time, did they care.

This was someone they needed.

Someone who, in that grand-scheme of the world of Mobius, who was unknown, unimportant, and would not be missed if they failed.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

amarin8388: Bottom Line: I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys Science Fiction. During my reading, I thought many times that this would make a good story for a movie. It reminded me of the StarWars movie franchise, not because of the plot but because of the diversity of chara...

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...

Pablo Rojas: Love the story, at the end it is a western story, simple, yet giving hints and pieces of the situation that is happening all over ravencroft´s universe. easy to read and always keeping with the main stream story I want to keep reading about, Olafson´s adventures.

Ding Fernando: very nice read.so realistic you can hardly put it down,i really like the character so human despite posessing immortality and eternal youth.though i would prefer a better ending..i still love this novel and i am recommending it to all sci fi fans to give it a try .you will love it too!!

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...
