Liam, Phoebe, and their families are scheduled to depart Mars on the last colony ship to leave the solar system before the sun goes supernova. But on their last day on Mars, Liam and Phoebe discover a dead alien, a time-traveling watch, and the fact that the sun's impending supernova may have been deliberately caused by a mysterious group called The Drove. Will they be able to catch the starliner before it departs? ( )

Really enjoyed this. Lots of interesting stuff about Mars and how a colony might work, which I am pretty sure is accurate.

Now the idea that you could fly from Mars to Saturn in a couple of hours without pulling enough g's to kill you is, of course, inaccurate, but hey, FICTION.

I'm really intrigued by the bad guys and why the sun is going nova, and will probably pick up the next book. ( )

I really liked this book. When i first got it I sure thought the idea of a whole book on one day would be obscured. But it moved along quickly wanting to turn the page. Our junior protagonist has to live just one last day on the only world he has ever known. Liam was born and raised on Mars, which humanity fled to for a short time when it became clear that the sun was going to explode and Earth was no longer inhabitable.

It would be short stay only while they found a suitable (Star Trek Class M) planet. His parents where on the team determine how to settle the stars. So they are the last to leave when most of his classmates and the rest of humanity had already moved on. What was only going to be day away from school turned into a new adventure and more than anyone every thought possible.

I particularly liked the way Emmerson portrays time travel. ( )

This was a very engaging Science Fiction book. A bit hard to understand at the beginning but oh so fun to read. ( )

Imagine a world where the sun begins to die WAY before it’s supposed to, and humanity is forced to leave Earth before technology has reached the point of interstellar travel. Now imagine humanity living on Mars in Terra-formed domes a mere 50 years after finding refuge among the red scenery. Humanity is once again on the move to find the Cinderella Zone where life can continue to subsist – and this safe haven is 150 years away. The ship that will take humanity away from the dangers of our dying sun is almost complete and with it The Last Day on Mars has finally arrived. This last day is where this novel begins.

Phoebe and Liam are two best friends who are forced to be part of the final round of people taken up into the great space ship in the sky. During their last days on Mars they discover a secret that changes everything humanity knows about their history and the universe. Meanwhile, some pretty spectacular events occur, things blow up..things get pretty dangerous.

I went into The Last Day on Mars expecting a mediocre YA novel about a set of kids who discover a secret buried on Mars and some serious cheesy romance. Instead, I got a pretty epic MG science fiction novel with a tad of romance, but way more action and adventure than advertised by the synopsis.

Although I loved everything about this book, I am not sure if I am satisfied, either. I loved the characters, the dramatic action scenes and really fantastic story building that will make the next few books in this series AMAZING. However, The Last Days on Mars is also a lot of flash and action without a whole lot of intense plot creation. I was enthralled and couldn’t wait for the next big reveal (I read the entire book cover to cover in one sitting), but in the end I found there wasn’t a whole lot of substance that made me feel that “satisfied” feeling. I didn’t want the story to end just yet. I wanted more.

In retrospect, my desire for more probably means this is the beginning of a dangerously addictive series. Why isn’t book two out yet..?

In short, The Last Day on Mars is about teenagers, but is so much more than that. The plot deals with adult issues and is way more exciting and enthralling than a hard science fiction novel..yet has lots of interesting scientific stuff. Emerson’s world building made me remember why I loved writing as a kid: the ability to create and form an entire universe complete with crazy inventions and political motivations that shape characters in interesting and unexpected ways. Last Day on Mars is created completely from the mind of a creative individual and it shows in inspiring ways.

This book will appeal to readers who enjoy science fiction, MG novels, novels about apocalyptic events and conspiracies, action and adventure tales and novels that just have amazing style and creative descriptions. ( )

Many hundreds of light-years from the solar system you call home, inside a spindly crystal structure floating at the edge of a great nebula shaped like an eye, a yellow light began to blink.
