Author Bio –Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio. She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. Shehas renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends –but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction. Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.Social

My Thoughts

As you know when you choose a book to read sometimes you choose well and other times the book doesn’t work for you.  This book was one of the former.  I thought that the book really did work well.

The character was very well written and you could really feel a lot of what the character went through.  While I did love the characters the story dragged in a few places but to be honest that just gave the book some more character.

Very good book and I am hoping there will be more books by this author.
