The world is dying. The Chinese Communist Party has a plan to preserve the Chinese way of life and to save the world - but at what cost for the rest of humanity?

The Child of Mars is the second instalment of the Children Trilogy - and continues to chart the life and times of the superhuman Commander Nathan Blake.

This story takes us from earth in 2047 to Mars and the far reaches of the Milky Way. The Child of Mars is a story of greed, fear, duty, and retrobution.

The Child of Mars introduces new characters you will love, and also characters you will love to hate. The Child of Mars is fast paced and action pack - and continues the expansive world building from The Children of the Third Reich.

This is the prologue from The Child of Mars - I will be publishing the rest at the end of November 2021.
