On Mars, in the distant future, the princess Haydn's arranged marriage cannot save her beloved Republic. Her arch-enemy, the warrior-woman Frane, seeks to make herself Queen while Haydn--the legitimate heir-- must flee for her life.
A reluctant symbol for those who would restore the monarchy, Haydn is too young and unprepared to assume the throne--but determined to become a great Queen. With a bounty on her head, she will make a perilous journey to the realization that--in order to save her world-- she must sacrifice all that she holds dear.
PRAISE FOR HAYDN OF MARS:
"Haydn of Mars is the cat's pajamas...reads as if Edgar Rice Burroughs had been born in 1973 instead of 1873, and just begun writing today."
-- Science Fiction Weekly
"Fabulous...an enthralling Martian science fiction tale." -- Midwest Book Review
"Fans of fantasy and SF alike will appreciate this genre-bending space adventure." --Romantic Tiimes
"Sarrantonio’s colorful ‘distant future’ is similar to Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles or Burroughs’ Barsoom." --Anthro
