    This was pretty good. I was pretty sure who was doing this fairly early on. And books that will become series seem to be coming from everywhere these days, and sometimes I think the end of the first book can come in a pretty weird place. I know there is a sequel coming, but it didn't f...

    ?He was guessing that level was mainly for storage. It wasn?t supposed to be a hotel, but there was a damn sight more room than a prison. Which it both was, and wasn?t.? The concept of this book meant I was very much looking forward to it weeks before release. The opening ch...

    A murder mystery set on Mars, One Way is a perfect page turner, completely plot led, it moves at break neck speed. The plot is all, there?s very little embellishment in the way of characterisation or world-building, the Martian landscape is dismissed in a few vague sentences, so if y...

    I want to thank the folks at Netgalley for giving me an ARC of this book, I will be posting the review of this book as the release date gets closer in the US. I will say that this is more a thriller rather than a technical book,I enjoyed the whodunnit sense of it . ...

    Totally awesome! Morden came up with a great premise and absolutely delivered. It was a solid fun read from end to end. It isn't as sophisticated as Martian but I think Martian fans will still find it to be a great read. ...

    One Way is a futuristic, science fiction novel, it?s not a genre I would normally read but I'm glad I did and thought it was pretty good with a unique concept. Set in 2047, NASA contracted a company called Xenosystems Operations (XO) to construct a base in Mars for their NASA astrona...

    There have been a lot of novels set on Mars in recent years, some good, some bad - One Way is one of the good ones. Taking the concept of colonizing Mars, but using a 17th/18th century twist. Prisoners. One Way manages to tell a gripping thriller of a story that is all too scary, in...

    Mars. One of my all time favorite travel destinations which for practical reasons is currently undertaken strictly in fictional (and occasionally) nonfictional form. I was very excited to see this book come up on Netgalley and read it almost as soon as my request was approved. Sadly, t...

    3.5 of 4 stars One Way is a book that I was really looking forward to. A murder mystery on Mars. Everyone?s a suspect and there?s no way to escape. It sounds perfect doesn?t it? I expected to enjoy this and in fact I did. It?s well written with plenty of detail, some may think...

    RTC. A little bit The Martian, a little bit murder mystery/thriller... I predicted most of the big things, but still enjoyed the read. It not a new favourite or anything, because it didn't keep me on my toes, but it's definitely a bit of fun... and it's set on Mars... and it's mo...

    Written by a rocket scientist so I believe the facts pertaining to building a Mars Base are technically correct. There is much labour involved in setting it up and having it ready for the first NASA astronauts. They need construction workers for the domes, electricians, people to const...

    Trigger warnings: murder, incarceration, violence. 3.5 stars. In the interests of full disclosure, I won a copy of this through the Dymocks Gold Booklover Program. But that doesn't change my opinion in any way. So this premise of this book? Is AMAZING. A company works out th...

    Pros: interesting characters, fast paced, tense Cons: a little obvious In an attempt to save money, XO recruits convicts to man its mission to Mars and build its NASA contracted habitat. But Mars is a dangerous place and ?accidents? happen. I really enjoyed this book. Fran...

    One Way by S.J. Morden is satisfying hard science fiction with a twist. The novel opens with the appropriation of convicts by a private entity to build a base for NASA on Mars. The narrative follows Frank Kitterage, a prisoner who is recruited for his knowledge of construction, as he t...

    I recieved an e-ARC of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I was bitterly disappointed by this book and though it pains me to give it such a low score, I really can't find it in my heart to stretch to giving it more than a 2 star rating. Initially sold to ...

    Find this review at Forever Lost in Literature! Now this was a fun, fast-paced adventure that I found incredibly entertaining. I was immediately pulled in by the premise of this book and I'm happy to say that I felt it was executed really well. I've recently found that although I...

    I really enjoyed this one as was shown by the speed at which I read it - One Way is basically a bit of an adventurous murder mystery set on Mars, or mostly so anyway, a tense and claustrophobic tale which benefited from some scientific geekery and a main character who was easy to get a...

    This is a good, entertaining read about a bunch of prisoners/convicts who have been given the opportunity to use their skills, in helping to build up and then serve on a newly formed base on Mars. This book is like the films Dirty Dozen meets Armageddon, who slowly walks by and says he...

    A murder mystery set on Mars? Yeah, I?m in. NetGalley has been pretty bad lately, so it was nice to see a book in my wheelhouse. The science was hard enough to interest sci-fi nerds, but not so technical that it was like reading a service manual. It?s pretty easy for the reader to ...

    One Way is one of those books that will make you think about the way that the world works. This is a hard sci-fi book, and for those unfamiliar with that term, it means that the science in this science fiction leans more towards the plausible than the fantastical. In this context th...

    I wonder if this will be turned into a movie. They did The Martian with one person, this one is just a group and keep the science real and bam! There you go. Anyway, as a book. I enjoyed it. The whole criminal aspect of it all was not new per say but I enjoyed the characters and th...

    I am giving One Way by S.J. Morden a 3.75/5 stars. I thought that the concept for this book was very interesting and unique, which made me inclined to pick it up and read it. For the most part, I did really like the book. The setting was fairly well fleshed out, though I didn't underst...

    (Thanks to Dymocks for sending me a review copy.) One Way by S.J. Morden is an enjoyable science-fiction mystery story. Mars seems a popular planet to set science-fiction stories on, although this is the first murder mystery I?ve read set on the Red Planet. While I?ll admit ...

    Love love loved this book. A brilliant, original tale of criminals sent to Mars to set up a habitat in advance for NASA. To say anymore would spoil the plot but what a ride, all backed up by science and will appeal to anyone who loves science fiction and our eventual life on mars. ...
