If you’re going to colonise a planet, you’d better be willing to fight for it.

Within Anphobos, there grows a new race. The first generation of humans never to set foot on Earth. They are pale skinned, large eyed and worship no god but science. They possess technological skills and processes Earth has refused to acknowledge. Until now…

“We are Martian. Your religion isn’t ours. Our god is Mars. Our religion is science. Anything we do in the service of Mars, is good. Make no mistake, Earth girl, we are both right and good.”

Fresh off Earth, Jodi Scarfield doesn’t really care for Mars or its politics. Still, accusations of treason will get a girl’s attention…

“Rebecca Bloomer’s young adult science fiction novel, UnEarthed, is a fast paced, action filled drama. A thrilling read.” 5 stars

About The Author

Rebecca Bloomer

Rebecca Bloomer

Rebecca Bloomer is a Melbourne-based adventuress with a keen interest in everything. Rebecca’s favourite writing aids are:

*long walks (often in someone else’s shoes) *big dreams (day, night and especially in meetings) *a decent sense of humour (her own or someone else’s, it doesn’t make too much difference) *curiosity (ever wondered why cats look so smug?) *observational skills (thus the contact lenses) *quiet determination (the loud kind causes headaches)

  1. Emily-Jane Hills Orford for Readers’ Favorite

    Jodi Scarfield is off to Mars. It’s more than just an adventure. Her father has been working at Anphobos, a colony on Mars, for over a year and now Jodi and her mother are joining him. Jodi doesn’t really want to go. At sixteen, Jodi would rather stay on Earth where she has friends and she’s connected online with other computer geeks to wreak havoc on government computers. Little does she realize that she’ll be able to use her hacking skills on even more impressive high tech equipment while she’s living on Mars. And the best part is that she only has to attend school two days a week! When she quite literally bumps into the cutest Martian, Jules, little does she know that this chance encounter at the monorail station will lead to her inadvertently becoming involved in a Martian rebel plot to overthrow the government of Anphobos and a threat on her own life.

    Rebecca Bloomer’s young adult science fiction novel, UnEarthed, is a fast paced, action filled drama. The main character, Jodi, is a typical teenager in many ways, but also a brilliant mind with a real knack for hacking anything high tech. The interchange between Jodi and her parents sets the stage for a genuine story about relationships. But this is much more. While Jodi tries to make friends and fit into a new home on a new planet, she fast-tracks her learning and ability to manipulate the technology around her to create and adapt to her own space. The unsettling ‘rebel’ involvement and so-called peaceful rallies suggest to the reader another ‘rebel’ cause in a new colony and the reader almost expects a boat-load of tea to be dumped into the ocean. Only, in Jodi’s case, it was almost an entire collapse of the dome that protected her and everyone living in Anphobos from the cruel Martian elements beyond. A thrilling read.
