Product Details

Praise

“Peppered with such intriguing scientific details as the pervasive nature of Mars dust, Holm’s absorbing speculative novel is…rendered with a keen sense of place grounded by identifiable sociofamilial relationships.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The plot and setting are elegantly simple, yet the story proves completely engaging, driven by a charming cast of gentle characters and, more so, by Holm’s lean, measured prose, which moves briskly and seems to strike a resonant note on every page.” —Booklist, starred review
 
“A delightful space adventure.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The Lion of Mars looks past the red dust to reveal how our communities shape us just as much as our environments.” —Bookpage

“The well-wrought setting, including thoughtful depiction of lowish-tech Martian life, and a strong cast of well-developed characters make for an intriguing and compelling read.” —The Horn Book
