Containment and sequel
Equinox:Children of Occam by Christian Cantrell
As the Earth’s ability to support human life begins to diminish at an alarming rate, the Global Space Agency is formed with a single mandate: protect humanity from extinction by colonizing the solar system as quickly as possible. Venus, being almost the same mass as Earth, is chosen over Mars as humanity’s first permanent steppingstone into the universe.
Sounds interesting, well it wasn’t. It was mildly interesting at best.
And the sequel, was too boring to finish.
I gave up. Almost never happens with me.
