Summary

Anna left at dawn. 
She entered the Martian desert, all alone. 
Where is she going? 
What secret is she hiding? 
Thirty years after the Mars exploration mission Hera, whose crew died in mysterious circumstances, the ensuing political issues that slowed NASA's race to conquer space have finally ended. This time the five members of the new Isis mission will not travel the 400 million kilometres for a short visit. This time they are destined to become the first colonisers of the Red Planet. 
The science fiction series "Red Desert", set in the near future, includes four books. 
The first one, "Point of No Return", is a novella. 
In what looks like a suicide attempt, Swedish exobiologist Anna Persson, crew member of the Isis, secretly leaves Station Alpha at the crack of dawn to travel deep into the Martian desert in a pressurised rover. 
As she journeys to the limit of her two day oxygen supply, she shows us memories of events from her past leading up to the mission. Little by little, as time and oxygen run out, she reveals the real Anna. 
Whatever her goal, wherever it is, will Anna reach her destination? 
The second book is "Red Desert - People of Mars" (a novel). 
--- This is the first book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---

    Despite their short stature, dwarves are amongst the fiercest and most feared fighters of all the races. Thanks to their great strength and stamina, Dwarves march to battle in thick armor and carrying numerous heavy weapons. This book compiles all of the information known about these grim warriors and how they wage war. From an initial examination of the fighting methods of the individual dwarf soldier, it expands to look at how they do battle in small companies and vast armies. It covers all of their troop types from the axemen that form the front lines of battle to their deadly accurate crossbowmen, and noting their specialist troops such as their famous siege-engineers. Also examined are their tactics in specific situations such as underground fighting 
    and combat in mountainous terrain. Finally, the book examines a few specific battles in great detail in order to fully demonstrate the dwarven way of war.
