Descendants of Power
P.N. Shafa gives us a glimpse of the class struggles of the future in Descendants of Power! Climate ravaged Earth is now ruled by mega corporations selling seats to a Martian colony, one with less room than they’re offering. Shafa follows several characters in the class struggle that ensues and shows us what a realistic power struggle in space would look like. I really loved Shafa’s take on things, and especially loved how we got to see both Earth and the Mars colony evolve over a hundred years! If you love sci fi or political dramas with a splash of dark humor, come book your tickets to Mars with Descendants of Power!
Dessa-Spirit of Vengeance

Lombardi perfectly captures all the charms of dark fantasy: the deep characters, a well thought out world, and the betrayals, oh the betrayals! This is a book filled with twists, voice, and vibrant characters. It’s not necessarily for the faint of heart, but if you can get through the darker moments it’s really rewarding.
