Relentless Moon (Lady Astronaut 3)
We last left our Lady Astronauts with our main character from the Calculating Stars and the Fated Sky, having changed history forever and well on her way to the distant planet Mars. In the third book, Relentless Moon, we join another Lady Astronaut in Nicole Wargin, the wife of the governor of Kansas, who has big plans to run for president in the next election. But while her husband is dealing with his growing campaign, Nicole makes the easy choice to step out of the political limelight and help out doing what she loves most: piloting, flying, and doing monumental work on the moon.
But as soon as the crew gets ready to land, problems ensue that soon turn to sabotage. Then things go from not so good to much worse. The couple hundred people on the moon find themselves under some sort of terrorist attack likely from the Earth First cult fringe looking to make the world focus on the people suffering from the effect of climate change due to the meteorite, and to divert attention from sending more people to the moon. In this longer book, Kowal is at her best with the action and the science research, thrilling readers to the final page.
