Hermit on Mars
A call for help sends Sig into the Tartarus Mountains of Mars. Delivering repair parts to his mother offers a temporary escape from his miserable life in the colony, but the dangers in her cavern may make him long for Cerberus Base.
Sig's life is falling apart, so his mother's call for help seems like a welcome escape. But he isn't ready for the threats at her remote cavern, or on the surface of the lethal Red Planet.
Settlers conquer Mars with Sig's robots, but conflict in the lab and clashes with his partner leave him miserable. Both love and peril await him among the prospectors of the Hermit's Cavern, who explore the Tartarus Mountains for rare crystalline minerals. Sig's rider, his way home, is stolen and, since no one's ever seen the Hermit, blind trust in his life support systems could prove fatal.
Join Sig to explore rugged mountains under Martian moons and cross the strange dunes of the Amazon Plain. He's determined to save his mother and the other cavern people despite their lack of faith in him. Provided he survives.
