    1. I really enjoyed this, I bought it on a whim as I don't buy much science fiction but this one took my fancy as I liked the mysterious cover. I then read a good review that tempted me further by describing the epilogue as a doozy, and that's my favourite type of epilogue.The story is very in depth - I like a book that keeps me concentrating, and this one did that but also kept me guessing right to the end. Part thriller, part political warfare, part romance, part space adventure, Ephialtes has it [...]

    3. Good book, wanted to care more about the characters but found that hard to doVery much liked the end, so many questions thoh looking forward to the next one.

    4. i won this book on Giveaways. I can't wait to recive it, it seems great. I'll update my review as soon as i read it

    5. Finally finished this last night, good story, interesting ending, is there more to come on this story?

    6. Kindle Unlimited but was freebie day, not sure about the kuThe Ephialtes Trilogy chronicles the conflict between Earth and Mars, triggered by Mars' secession from the USAN in the aftermath of World War IV. The stories of The Ephialtes Shorts Collection make up the connective tissue between books one and two of the trilogy. The collection comprises all four previously released shorts together with the exclusive Ephialtes Short V: Why Am I So Clever?n 2241 the dominant superpower on Earth, the U [...]

    7. Reasonably good military sci-fi. I love some of the technological concepts, and the characters are well-defined. However, some of the political scenarios are just plain unrealistic and contrived. We don't really see Mars, as such, in the sense of the unique characteristics of the planet that make it a challenging place to live. It could have been almost any generic planet. I won't say more without revealing spoilers. Suffice to say, while this is certainly hard sci-fi, and well-written, it's act [...]

    8. Not for meI guess I like a little story line with my sci-fi rather than a little sci-fi with the story line. This just didn't work for me.

    9. While this was a very good science fiction book, I can’t stand the name or title nor some of the names of the characters in the book. Why can’t authors use names that are pronounceable by most English language readers? I struggled with how to pronounce the title, “Ephialtes” and had to look it up several times before it stuck in my head. Now, I know I’m not the brightest book reader, but that is certainly a strange name for anything. Additionally, the last name for one of the main char [...]

    10. I received a free copy of this book from the author and I am offering an honest, though subjective, review.In a word I enjoyed the story. It started out rather slowly but never lost my interest. Anticipation continued to build throughout as more characters and situations appeared, as the plot and sub-plots developed, and sticky scenarios became more entangled. At times I couldn't read fast enough wondering what was going to happen next. Some of the plot twists were guessed at correctly, some wer [...]

    11. An excellent book that now has me very eager to read more in this Universe. Ephialtes is set a few hundred years in the future and centers on the colony of Mars declaring their independence. While the people of Mars seem to be the protagonists, the characters are all very well developed and make it difficult to take sides. There also seems to be some interesting commentary on the approach that governments take about wars. I'm definitely eager to read the followup, due out some time in 2017!(note [...]

    12. Great book. First time for me for this type of book. Won't be the last. Enjoyed the characters. Fast moving. Scary to think that this might be the future. Received this book in exchange for an honest review. Jackie
