{Blog Tour: Review + Favorite Reads + Giveaway} Last Day on Mars - By Kevin Emerson


Author: Kevin Emerson
Release Date: 2/14/2017
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N
It is Earth year 2213—but, of course, there is no Earth anymore. Not since it was burned to a cinder by the sun, which has mysteriously begun the process of going supernova. The human race has fled to Mars, but this was only a temporary solution while we prepare for a second trip: a one-hundred-fifty-year journey to a distant star, our best guess at where we might find a new home.

Liam Saunders-Chang is one of the last humans left on Mars. The son of two scientists who have been racing against time to create technology vital to humanity’s survival, Liam, along with his friend Phoebe, will be on the very last starliner to depart before Mars, like Earth before it, is destroyed.

Or so he thinks. Because before this day is over, Liam and Phoebe will make a series of profound discoveries about the nature of time and space, and find out that the human race is just one of many in our universe locked in a desperate struggle for survival.

There's so much about Lasr Day OnMars that I loved, it's hard not to go into rambling details about!

Liam and Phoebe were a dynamic duo who caught my attention immediately and didn't let go until the end of the book. They have instant chemistry that allowed me to connect with them and create a unique connection. They're on a mission that has the fate of many lives at stake, and for two people who are so young the maturity they showed was heartwarming.

For being my first read by Kevin Emerson I was blown away, it made me want to read the rest of his books right now because he has such a great sense of character development and how to intertwine multiple plot lines!

I would recommend this read to everyone!
