*You answer this ad at your own risk.
New mining and tech company MARSCORP promises that the sky is the limit. But people who invest quickly realize that once you’re in, it’s something else entirely: a game of thievery, skullduggery, and outright bravery—but only by some. A planet populated entirely by mechanical rovers, but full of monsters, just the same. Monsters born from human malice, desperation, greed.
Welcome to the world of Helen of Mars, tales of a not-too-distant future where the strong prey on the weak, and heroes are forged on the dusty surface of the Red Planet.
Helen Hunter isn’t anything special. Just a techie teenager who likes to play online games, build custom robots, and test her skills in the occasional gaming competition.
She definitely isn’t looking to do anything more than that.
But when her mother falls ill, putting the entire family’s future at risk, she finds herself on a path that will take her beyond online games and into outer space.
There, a shady corporation called MARSCORP has a fleet of rovers mining ore on the Red Planet. Rovers controlled remotely by freelance operators on Earth. And her parents, desperate for the money to pay incoming medical bills, have just signed a contract for their own rover. Even worse, they’ve put everything on the line to cover the cost of it. The house. Their savings. Helen’s future.
Suddenly Helen is thrust into a world she can only see on a computer screen—a real-life RPG. And a game where the stakes are a whole lot higher than just having to go back to the start. The mission: Find enough ore to pay off the contract. The danger: a band of thieves intent on taking everything she earns.
Then she discovers that Mars is full of secrets. This is no simple mining operation. Someone else—someone who isn’t with MARSCORP—is gaming the system. Someone else is controlling those thieves.
And they’re intent on destroying operators like her parents.
Now in the fight of her life, she will learn just how dangerous some games can be… and how far some people will go to win.

Inspired by the films of Henry Fontaine, Lucy Cole has created the Fontaine Gallery, a museum of sorts that boasts the most comprehensive collection of Fontaine artifacts and memorabilia in the world. Lucy has always had a special love for Henry and believes that everyone else in Freemont does as well. But someone is harboring a dark hatred for the long-dead film star, and after Fontaine's remains are stolen from the local cemetery, Lucy vows to do what she can to find out who's responsible. She soon discovers that Freemont is a town plagued with crooked police, violent residents, and hidden dangers. What begins as a simple search for local vandals soon grows into a deeper mystery as Lucy learns the truth about Henry Fontaine. He hadn't died in a motorcycle accident. He was murdered, and the killer may be close.
