About the book:

"Every Person on This Planet Has Disappeared." 

Commander Christopher Burke and his crew are humanity's greatest explorers. They've finished their mission on the red dirt of Mars and now they just want to get back to Earth. To see friends, family, and loved ones. To be home. But even with communication to ground control cut and a perilous landing, nothing could prepare the crew for what they discover when they step foot back on planet Earth. Everyone...everywhere...is gone. It's not a dream. It's not a trick. Now Burke and his team have one mission: find out who or what is behind the disappearance of all mankind.

I have not read a Robin Parrish book that I did not enjoy, so I was very much looking forward to Offworld and it definitely met my expectations!

The story was very good and interesting throughout, although it wasn't until Chris and his team got back to earth that my attention was really grabbed. :)

I was surprised by how things turned out at the end of Offworld - it was NOT what I was expecting - and while I did find a few things really weird, it did make for an intriguing story.

I really liked the characters - my favorite probably being Terry with Owen and Chris close behind. :)

Overall, I really liked Offworld and recommend it for fans of suspense books with some sci-fi elements.

  2. Well, I have not read any books by this author. But this does sound interesting. The disappearance of all mankind? That's my cup of tea.
    GREAT review, Melanie!
