Revolution is the first book in The Sol Saga by James Fox, an enthralling science fiction tale with strong political themes and interplanetary intrigue. Brigadier General Keith Brennan of the Protectorate Forces is a skilled soldier who prefers battle to state dinners, and when we meet him, he is not comfortable in his dress-whites — the stiff collar, the constant fear of accidentally smearing the planet’s pervasive red-black dust on the too-tight fabric. But when the President of the solar system is assassinated on Mars, he is the best choice to carry out an investigation. He uncovers a conspiracy that is carefully designed to push the entire system into war, and only he can stop Earth and Mars from engaging in a full-blown war. He might be the best person for the job, but time is against him.
There couldn’t be a better opening for a promising science fiction series than Revolution, a tale with a world that is well thought out and carefully executed. The writing, from the first page on, is descriptive and atmospheric, exploring a world that instantly occupies the imagination of the reader. This is an interplanetary thriller with wonderfully written characters and a conflict that affects the very survival of the solar system. James Fox is an author who outfoxes readers, crafting a twisty tale that is hard to put down, keeping readers guessing what happens next. It was delightful to read this opening book in the series, and I must say that I was completely immersed in the story, gripped from the first to the last page, thanks to the author’s expert storytelling skills and the deft plotting.
