About the Book:

The new capital of Mars has a problem with gliders, thrill-seekers who soar on the thermals that run through the pressurised canyon that makes up its' length. Policing them is the Windriders, an eclectic team of volunteer police officers in flying power armour. But between the owner of the only book store on Mars, his agoraphobic hacker roommate, a genetically engineered miner turned chef and a lieutenant who's been on Mars a lot longer than she lets on, they have a few secrets they'd rather keep out of the view of the normal police. A kidnapping introduces them to Kirsten, a lunar native newly arrived and struggling to cope with the difference in culture and gravity. Inducting her into the team, they find themselves facing down a terrorist plot that threatens the city, their secrets and all of Mars.

Author's Note:

I haven't worked on this for a while and I need a little bit of a kick to get back into the swing of it. I'm mostly looking for feedback on characterization and setting, as I always worry that I'm not getting across the ideas in my head. Thanks to GD for making me notice I hadn't bothered uploading most of this.

Requested feedback Criteria: Overall Feedback, Point of View, Voice, Character Development, Setting
