Now, in a new stand-alone adventure set in this world's AD 2000, Jeremy Wainman is an archaeologist who has achieved a lifelong dream: to travel to Mars and explore the dead cities of the Deep Beyond, searching for the secrets of the Kings Beneath the Mountain and the fallen empire they ruled.
Teyud Zha-Zhalt is the Martian mercenary the Terrans hire as guide and captain of the landship Intrepid Traveller. A secret links her to the deadly intrigues of Dvor il-Adazar, the City That Is a Mountain, where the last aging descendant of the Tollamune Emperors clings to the remnants of his power...and secrets that may trace their origin to the enigmatic Ancients, the Lords of Creation who reshaped the Solar System in the time of the dinosaurs.
When these three meet, the foundations of reality will be shaken - from the lost city of Rema-Dza to the courts of the Crimson Kings.

Story Without an End
After buying more than 300 books from Audible, this was my first listen to science fiction. Though the story was a bit choppy at times, I found my interest growing as it closed in on what I hoped would be a good ending. It proved to be a waste of time because there was no ending. In fact part 2 ended so abruptly and left so many questions unanswered, that I was certain I had forgotten to download Part 3. There is no Part 3! I suggest you not waste or money and certainly not a credit.

Martian political thriller
Taking place in the same alternate history setting as the novel The Sky People, but 12 years latter and on Mars, I found the story to be very entertaining.
While the theme of the series (research into the Lords of Creation) was carried over from the first book, there was also an emphasis on the Marian political system and the "Game of Thrones" intrigues.
A prior review mentioned that they found the narration irritating. I personally did not have any problem with the narrators voice, or the characterizations. I had little difficulty telling which character said which line.
