The bestselling author of The Martian returns with an irresistible new near-future thriller—a heist story set on the moon. Jazz Bashara is a criminal. Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent. Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Two reviews in one day? What? And for anyone who is keeping track, I think I've reviewed every book I've read so far this year. Let's talk again in February. Science Fiction is not my jam. I tend to avoid that genre more than I avoid direct sunlight. Then people raved and raved about The Martian....
Absolutely fantastic!! Loved it!!I absolutely loved the last Andy Weir book that I read called "The Martian". This book was a lot like that in the fact that it was set in outer space, fraught with lots of action and plot twists, and there was a lot of humor.Jazz Bashara is the main character of this...
Well that was really fun! Artemis is quite different from The Martian, which I loved, but I genuinely enjoyed it. I loved the concept of how life could work on the moon, but I didn't so love the characters. It kept feeling as if Jazz, the female main character, was a male. As a girl, I couldn't real...
