His life has never been his own.
Martin, the grey man, every one knows him or thinks they do, yet the secrets he holds many will go to the grave with him many years from now. He starts in Mildred's resistance and continues though all of the Network books. This is a story of a man who gives his all to his network and those whom he loves. It will answer many of the questions you have wondered about though all of Katie's books on Alkarra.
Just finished this incredible journey of Marten’s life… we met him in Mildred’s resistance, and we have seen him through all the Network series and saga, and some of the Novellas, but this intimate look into some of his most cherished memories… has been such a joy to read. Marten is a character that teaches through example that choosing the right thing is not always popular or what makes us happy in the now, but no good deed goes unrewarded… one must find a balance, keep doing the right thing, choices are not always easy, but they are not always hard either…. Thank you Katie J Cross for a lovely read, and for the life lessons you let Marten teach us…
What can you say about a man who gives his heart to a woman and his network? A lot to be honest!! Marten is a pillar of strength to all who know him. He's the one you can go to for advice and a hug! Don't miss this beautiful ending to a wonderful series!!!
We have loved this man since Mildred’s Resistance, and his story makes you love him even more. This book tells of his deep love for Mildred and for the son he couldn’t raise. This book tugs at your heartstrings, you will love this last book in the Network Saga. Thanks Katie for listening to Jane.
Reading Marten felt like i was finally getting to sit down with that strong, unassuming foundational character of Alkarra. I loved hearing about life through his eyes, feels and heart. And what a pleasure to travel back in time to where it all began for so many of my favourites. This is a great companion to the series and the collection of Alkarra stories.
