Synopsis

Trust no one, no one trusts – that is the way of Lunar City.

When Aurelia Cole gets hired by Lunar City Hospital, the last thing she expects is that her shuttle will be attacked on the way to her new posting. With her new found Clone friend Nicholas, Aurelia manages to rescue Jonathon Hansen, who might just be the next Earth Empire president. But when Aurelia is forced to choose between Nicholas and Jonathon, she has to decide whether her love for her job is more important than her desire to do what’s right.

Head hunted by the Resistance movement, Aicee has the chance to overthrow a manipulative dictatorship. But in Lunar City, who can she trust and who really trusts her?

***Derek – #NerdGirlDad’s  Review***

 Many writers, whether they are sci-fi ones or any other genre usually have only one basic ‘good idea for a story’ and then after the first success, subsequent books follow the same pattern. This is definitely not true of Magus Tor.
Fate is yet another example of him letting his marvellous imagination run wild and in this case we are taken to a future Earth where wars, global warming and other human-caused problems have resulted in a civilisation very different from our own (for example you need permission to have a child.) In the first chapters you just get used to the idea of this and then discover that not everyone is happy with the state of affairs.
The subsequent adventures of Aurelia when she is recruited by the resistance will keep you page turning to the end. Actually whilst the story is complete, and all questions you will have are answered I got the impression that we have not heard the last of Aurelia.
I have reviewed quite a few of Magus’s books and if you don’t know his work you could do worse than start with ‘From the Distant Past.’

    I’m not big on this genre, but this does seem sort of interesting
