The End is only the Beginning.... 
It wasn't the first time Lieutenant Travis Daniels had been far from his wife and son. Leading an elite team on countless missions, dodging death at every turn-it was what he was trained to do. And returning to his family was always his driving force... but this time might be different. Imprisoned for an unsanctioned intrusion into a hot zone, Travis and his elite team took a deal to assist in the colonization of Mars to evade the death penalty. While stationed there, Travis' only source of sanity were the brief video conversations he was allowed with his family. When the last transmission received showed choppy images of the city in darkness and blurs of humanoid creatures running through the streets, Travis and his team must decide to either stay on Mars or find a way back to his family-unknowing of the hell that Earth has become.

My Review

Thank you to the author for sending me a copy in exchange for a honest review

First up this book had me hooked from the first chapter. The writing style I found quite unique, the descriptions of everything to the way the characters interact I loved.

The one thing that confused me to begin with was the multiple POV’s as I didn’t understand to begin with why there were these random characters, but as you read you realise why they are there.

Travis was a really good male lead, he was kick a** when he needed to be but at other times he really showed the human side to him.

Sent to mars for a unsanctioned trip to a hot zone (you do find out what happened) gets travis and his team sent to Mars to try and make it habitable for humans to live. While there travis and his team overcome many obstacles, including psychos, you have to read the book to find out more J

Annie is travis’s wife, she is left on earth while he is on Mars. Now this is one amazing heroine, she really takes charge of everything when things go wrong. Loved reading her chapters, cus shes not only looking after herself and her son but others as well and I think she does it really well.

There is one secondary character I must mention, Dasher. He is a criminal and I thought was just a common criminal but he turns out to be so much more than that and I found myself rooting for him to survive.

This book from the blurb sounded different, not my normal read. But It really surprised me how much I loved it, so much so that I had trouble putting it down. I cannot wait to read the next book to find out what happens.

If you love Sci-Fi and Horror books then this is definitely for you
