The red planet will run red with blood.
Martian terraformer Kaylee Fourteen is a recent immigrant from Earth. Residents of the domed colonies of Mars can practically smell the day they’ll be able to walk outdoors on their own planet without the need for air supplies. But the committees on Earth control the resources the colonists need, and their interference threatens the terraforming project’s very existence...until a group of radicals takes hostages to force the release of the tech and materials the terraformers need.
Caught in the crossfire, Kaylee has to navigate the delicate line between sympathy for her captors’ goals and horror at their methods. If she can’t keep the peace and find a way to get the hostage-takers what they ask for, humans and robots alike will pay with their lives.
How can anyone negotiate a hostage crisis with a bomb locked around her neck?
The fate of two worlds and the balance of power between humans and robots hang on that answer.
