After reading all of Edgar Rice Burroughs' books and being captivated by the John Carter and Princess of Mars books I was thoroughly disappeared with Mars Colony Chronicles..... I tried really hard to not compare Brandon Ellis to Burroughs but found that difficult to do.....and difficult to get through this series. I made it about halfway through the first book and just couldn't continue.
and it seems as if he never learns, either. While Ozzy is trying to find the Gaia Stones: humans are being evicted from Mars, searching for another world, far from the Dunrakee, but is that even possible? Lyra believes humans have a special purpose in the galaxy. Ozzy just isn’t sure!
The series started off slow. So slow that it was hard to keep reading. But I'm sure glad I did. A lot of great characters. The main character Ozzy has more lives than a cat. Lots of action though out. The ending is good but I want more.
To me, the series was predictable. There was no character development, it went from one disaster to another, and to be frank the lead character wasn't likable at all. I can forgive a book a lot if the characters evoke any emotional response other than meh from me. Maybe a young teenager would like the series, I did not.
A lone persecuted archaeologist holds the key to translation of the clues that can save Humanity, but will he solve the puzzles in time for Humanity to fulfill its original purpose and save the Universe?
The general theme of the books is interesting and could be a great read. Unfortunately the non stop action is quite literally that, to the point of ridiculousness and tedium and just becomes a constant and unrealistic slog. Lurching from one crisis to another immediately after it becomes so relentless after a while you find yourself skimming through it for some relief. Maybe some readers like this sort of thing but for me something more holistic and rounded is far more engaging.
I read ARCs of all the individual books but it is great to be able to read them as a boxset. I absolutely love this series. Ozzy manages to get in so many tight situations yet always manages to pull a last ditch surprise move. The adventure never stops, neither do the surprises.
