The Martian Diaries: Vol.1 The Day Of The Martians
From Amazon: A New War Of The Worlds Begins as Martian Tripods Return To Earth! Winner of 5 awards in the 2020 Los Angeles Science Fiction Film Awards, Audio Drama category, together with volume 2 Lake On The Moon. The terror of the coming of the Martians is all but a distant memory, a bad dream that has faded with time…. All George wants is a quiet suburban life – but at breakfast one morning his newspaper reports the shocking discovery of a Martian cylinder, found intact and unopened, and carefully transported to London. Could it be from the first alien invasion and after more than seven years are there Martians still alive inside? By teatime George learns that vengeance seeking Martians and their tripod fighting machines are already on their way back. This time they are armed with a doomsday weapon, able to destroy all bacteria and completely annihilate Earth. The countless numbers of their projectiles form a huge green comet and invasion day will be just before Christmas. The first attack by aliens was enough for any lifetime, but who would expect to be involved with two? Can George and his wife escape this new Martian apocalypse and how will our planet survive a second time? The Day Of The Martians continues the iconic Mars novel by H.G. Wells, in this exciting, unmissable action adventure – the first volume of The Martian Diaries science fiction series.
My Review: The Martian Diaries was a short sci-fi read and engaging. As the story unfolds, it seems that all life on Earth would soon be over. From the trenches the battle commenced and the ending was twisted in a way I did not expect. Five stars.
