Off World
Author: Robin Parrish
Publisher: Bethany House
Pages: 361

The crew of the Ares, the first manned expedition to the planet Mars, is returning to Earth after 2 1/2 years away from home. Midway during the return flight home the astronauts loose contact with their home base in Florida. What has happened? Upon crash-landing they have their answer, everyone on Earth is gone! Or are they? In his newest novel author Robin Parrish has spun a tale that combines the very best aspects of the sci-fi and suspense thriller genre. We follow the adventures of Chris, Owen, Terry & Trisha as they grip with the loneliness of their situation as well as the growing realization that they might not be alone after all.

Off World reads like a book that was written to be made into a great adventure movie. Robin Parrish builds event after breathtaking event in a way that leaves the reader cheering the good guys and crying out to them about the danger waiting just around the corner. Each corner that they turn brings them closer together, yet it also reminds them just how alone they are. Loneliness is a devastating feeling to deal with especially when we are surrounded with people that we know.

Robin Parrish has shown, in this his fourth novel, that he is indeed a force to be reckoned within the world of modern storytelling. For readers of the sci-fi and suspense genres this book is a welcome addition to anyone collection.
