The Heart of Mars

Paul Magrs

Publishing March 2018


The finale of the Lora trilogy, following Lost on Mars and The Martian Girl.

Lora and Peter bravely set off to find the Ancient Heart of Mars and rescue Ma and Hannah. They battle swamp-creature Goomba, bandits, and even Grandma to find the Ancients, who seem friendly. But warned by Sook, Lora discovers that the Ancients are the group mind of the burning heart of Mars and its earliest inhabitants. They have been disturbed by the human settlers ... and they want the ten Earth starships for themselves. Can their allies from the City Inside reach them in time? Or does Toaster, Lora’s faithful walking talking sunbed have the answers that may yet save them all...?
