GYAROS BOOK ONE : THE MICE EAT IRON

 

Hello everyone! 

 

I know I know, I’m horribly late and lazy too. but in defense I had exams kicking me up and down the week. However, better late than never, and here we are! 

I’d promised you all a review of a terrific book, and I’m linking you to it below so you can see for yourself just how awesome it is. The book is called Gyaros Book One: The Mice Eat Iron, written by Rohan Healy and Alex Healy from rohan7things, and I have to say, it’s really rekindled my interest in the science fiction genre again. 

Gyaros is set in the futuristic world of Carthage, the cradle of the new civilization, which is neighbor to the red moon, Gyaros. The contrast between the two settlements is as stark as day and night- while Carthage is a near utopian fully efficient society, Gyaros is the the dumping ground for all those deemed unfit to live on Carthage, an open prison with its own laws and lawmakers. 

Our main protagonist in this new world is Miles Stanton, a quiet and unassuming guy in his twenties, living the normal man’s dream life in Carthage. He works in the Energy Department and lives in the suburbs with his wife and son, and is soon to be promoted as well. It’s all going good, and Miles knows it too, till one, just one ill-fated day that throws everything in his life off balance. Out of nowhere Miles finds himself being shipped unceremoniously off to Gyaros, where he has to fight tooth and nail for his survival, and his sanity. 

The background for the entire novel is so brilliantly thought out, that you make the transition through the pages with Miles, without even noticing it. First the deceptively beautiful Carthage, and then the harsh reality of the red moon, both so expressively painted that you can see where Miles is, what he’s doing, and sometimes, what he’s missing too. Miles himself is the ultimate survivor, and it’s so fascinating to watch him discover his surroundings and discover himself through the extremes he faces. And not just Miles, but the people he meets too, the powerful, grizzly bear sized Maxen, and the innocent yet enigmatic child, Lucy. As much as I’m tempted to tell you what happens, I won’t, ’cause that’ll just give all the fun away won’t it? What I can tell you is that it’s a truly inspiring story of friendship and struggle and victory, and you’ll find yourself at the edge of your seat all the way through the fast paced but detailed narrative. 

 

I’d advise you all to hop over to Gyaros and look for yourself. I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed! In fact, soon there’ll be the second book to read too! How pawsome is that?
