is only enough life support for a few colonists stranded on Mars.
Now two colonies will engage in a bloody war for survival as the Martian
winter begins to engulf them.
In the tradition of Heinlein,
Asimov and Clarke, hard science returns to the Science Fiction genre
in this nail biting, scientifically realistic novel of ultimate
survival on a distant planet. When two colonies finally realize
that there can be no rescue and no way out but fight one another or
die, the ultimate battle for the survival of the human species begins.
But outside, the relentless and deep cold of the Martian desert begins
to seep inside as the carbon dioxide snows and impenetrable sandstorms
descend on them all with a vengeance.
Two colonies, one from
the United States and the other from the Reunified Soviet Empire have
constructed bases on Mars. They are separated by over a thousand
kilometers of Martian desert, the most hostile place any humans have
ever dared to settle. Their lives depend on constant resupply
from earth even while they work day and night to develop independent,
regenerating life support systems. But when the line of communications
with the earth goes dead - permanently - they are forced to come to
grips with the horrifying realization that they are on their own and
there is not enough to go around. For the human race to survive,
a lot of people are going to have to die...
Abyss of Elysium is filled with the
full sweep of human emotions from the bittersweet romance between men and
women whose days are clearly numbered, the mystery of losing contact with
all they have ever known on earth to the fear of a silent and cunning enemy.
The pages are filled with interplanetary intrigue, the race against an
emotionless clock, a spectacular, savage wilderness and the specter of
a war of insanity waged to survive just one more day. It is a guaranteed
one-day-read because you will not be able to put it down.
