The Woman in Purple Armor by Bryan DeMinico is a thrilling science fiction novel that will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat until the last page. Our protagonist is Captain Mike Casey, the star of Land Warfare Exploration Corp. His assignment is simple and exciting; become the first human on Mars, explore it, make notes and come back to Earth. However, before Mike could do that, he was captured by strange reptilian aliens who make him a slave. The only thing standing between Mike and his freedom is the Woman in Purple. She is the only other human on Mars, and the strange aliens fully trust her. Before Mike can escape, he needs to get rid of this woman, but it is not easy. She is almost savage and without mercy. The only way out is killing the Woman in Purple Armor, but how?
The Woman in Purple Armor is deceptively simple, but it becomes more complex as it continues. Author Bryan DeMinico did a fantastic job with world-building and making it believable. We all have a fear of the unknown, and the author capitalized on it. The descriptions of Mars and the “evil side of Mars” are fascinating. The author did a lot of research before writing this novel and it is apparent from the depth of the narrative. The pace is perfect, the narrative flows fluidly, and the overall feel of the story is exciting. Mike is a likable character, but the Woman in Purple Armor steals the show at times. She is fearsome and calculating (I love that about her) and she is a worthy adversary. Kudos for a great story! Entertaining until the end!
