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.

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

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 ...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining. I think certain parts could be added detailing the Mynds's culture. As well as more details on the Jhanthru history....

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.

Jasmine Chow: As I read this story, I was reminded some what of Terry Pratchett, especially some descriptions of politics and economics. The sci-fic setting is quite intriguing. Writing style is quite lovely and grew on me slowly. I was also slightly reminded of Mark Twain, especially his book A Connecticut Ya...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

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...
