“What do you have now?

Is it more precious to you than freedom?”

—Christina, The Far Shore

An oppressive world. An untested spacecraft. A perilous gamble.

Can her journey preserve humanity’s freedom?

Cristina Flores speaks her mind. But in a totalitarian surveillance state where privacy is a thing of the past, her critical thinking and outspoken nature have marked her for death.

So when rebel scientists recruit the math genius for a covert plan to start anew on Mars, she accepts the chance to control her own destiny.

But space is a harsh sanctuary, and freedom is never purchased cheaply.

Alongside a small band of like-minded renegades, Cristina struggles to overcome escalating failures and rising panic. She fears their most lethal threat may be a charismatic but incompetent leader determined to command the colony to its last dying breath…

Can Cristina’s unstoppable determination keep their dream alive, or will the hope for freedom be lost in the void?

The Far Shore is a thrilling sci-fi novel in the classic tradition. If you enjoy courageous heroes, convincing technology, and hard-edged science, you’ll love Glenn Damato’s bold odyssey.

Sudden independence breeds chaos.

Cristina Flores returns in this thrilling sequel to The Far Shore. Can young men and women—none of them trained astronauts—learn to cooperate and survive on Mars?

—Tom Ligon, Member, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America

“The Far Shore sucked me in from page one. It really is amazing.”

—Mikhail Voloshin
