Lords of Mars (Book Review)

As with the last book review this is posted in full on and this is simply a preview. If you want to see it in full then please follow the link through to there.

Do you ever get the feeling as if a single story was stretched out to cover multiple instalments? You know, when you’re watching something and it just feels as if every new part you see is an extended act of a tale. That’s almost what Lords of Mars feels like. In the review of Priests of Mars it was noted that the tale felt less like the plot of a book and more like it was simply Part 1 of a tale. That carries on here, with Lords of Mars seeming less like a novel and more like “Priests of Mars: Act Two”. 

 Following on from the climactic events of the last book, the Explorator Fleet of Magos Kotov orbits the newly discovered territory beyond the Halo Worlds. The single distress signal emanating from the planet they now orbit is their one clue to hunting down the last Imperial ships which braved this unknown region of space. Even as tensions flare between the overworked crews of the massive Ark Mechanicus and their masters, the vanguard deployed soon discovers a heresy beyond comprehension…
