The Olympus Project is a work of fiction in the science fiction and dystopian subgenres and forms the first installment in the Gaia series. It is best suited to mature readers and was penned by author Zoë Routh. In this opening adventure to what promises to be a clever, exciting, and well-developed series, we find ourselves in a future where humanity’s neglect of the global climate has left Planet Earth desolate and unliveable. The titular Olympus Project offers a means to colonize the moon, spearheaded by our central protagonists, the bright minds of Troy Bruin, Xavier Consus, and Xanthe Waters. But this intrepid trio is about to discover that there are those who don’t actually want salvation for the planet unless it’s under their total control.
Author Zoë Routh creates a superb dystopian setting for this thrilling novel, and one which is realized both in the cinematic aspect of the description, but also in its psychological atmosphere thanks to the sinister, tense undertones of the characters and the impending doom which they face should their mission fail. In terms of character development, I found the three personalities of the leading characters to be distinct in dialogue, approach, and attitude, which made it all the more exciting to see them put to the test in different ways and how they utilize the teamwork of their different skills to overcome the horrendous issues they face along the way. Overall, the fascinating concept and the vivid immersive qualities of The Olympus Project make it a fantastic choice for sci-fi readers everywhere and I’d highly recommend it.
