The Mercury Rebellion by Felix R. Savage

The Mercury Rebellion: A Science Fiction Thriller (The Interplanetary War Series Book 3)

Five Stars!

The interplanetary wrecking ball that swung into motion with The Galapagos Incident and gained momentum with The Vesta Conspiracy has now matured into The Mercury Rebellion!

It was a pleasure to read this book. There was no excessively florid prose, only a richly imagined story which, once the scene had been set, quickly accelerated to a blistering pace. There are space-battles, gun-battles, cyber-battles, sizzling Mercuric EVAs and no lack of horror in the midst of it all. There is plenty of humor too, as well as the consolidation of what was already a very well-developed universe.

The science and technology was an interesting medley of unusual ideas alongside sci and tech founded upon sound scientific principals, especially regarding orbital and planetary physics; the author has done his homework and this allows even his more challenging concepts to be easily swallowed down along with a swig of good ol’ hard sci-fi.

In all, I consider The Mercury Rebellion to be an excellent and entertaining third installment to the Interplanetary War Series, very capable as a stand-alone book, although I promise you that you’ll be left wanting to pick up its predecessors too.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an objective and non-reciprocal review.
