Today I am Reading... Defying Mars (Saving Mars #2) by Cidney Swanson + Teaser Tuesday




Defying Mars (Saving Mars, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Jessamyn has escaped Earth with food for her starving world, but her troubles are just beginning. She must rebuild her life without Pavel, the Terran boy whose kiss haunts her. Her success is further tainted by the loss of her beloved brother. Ethan disabled the deadly lasers orbiting Mars, but this has created a fervor to re-open trade with Earth which Jess knows would be disastrous. Add into the mix a secret which could launch an interplanetary war, and Jess finds herself at the center of an intrigue where, in order to save the world she loves, she must defy it.
Thorn
'Bringing the ship in a sweep along the Valles Marineris, Jessamyn marveled with Earth-attuned eyes at the deep chasm. The Galleon seemed to lean forward, to feel the call of the world that had launched her.
"That's my girl," said Jess softly."Almost home."
The moment of landing , shuddering and noisy, felt to Jessamyn like an embrace, a longed for rest, a smile upon the face of a friend.
She noticed a thrill running along her forearms as she hailed ground control.
"Mars Colonial Command, this is First Officer Jessamyn Jaarda. We request permission to disembark."'

  2. I'm always a little hesitant with sci-fi books, only because it's usually a hit or miss with me. I will have to take a look at some reviews for this one. I didn't really get much insight from the excerpt but the book description itself sounds good.

    1. It was actually really hard to do a teaser with this one, as the tension kind of builds gradually during the book. This is actually a really good book though. I can't say that sci-fi is really my thing, but this series is just awesome!

    5. The only part I was confused on was the Series 2 reference made on Amazon but I checked again and it does clearly show Saving Mars on there. Plus I did go check my goodreads right after I asked my silly question.

    1. I have never really read much sci-fi at all to be honest, but this doesn't even feel like sci-fi at times ☺ I really love these two books and can't wait for the third!
