Review: The Olympus Project by Zoë Routh @zoerouth

The Olympus Project

by Zoë Routh

Published: November 20, 2022

Publisher: Inner Compass Australia Pty Ltd

Genre: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Thriller


They are the best. The brightest. The hope of humanity. And they might destroy us all…

The future. Climate change has rendered much of the world desolate. Crops are failing. Rising seas have flooded coastal communities. The earth is dying, and humanity careens toward extinction.

Enter the Olympus Project—a plan to colonise the moon, led by three of humankind’s best and brightest: Troy Bruin, Xavier Consus, and Xanthe Waters.

But even the best and brightest can fall prey to humanity’s failing. Soon Xavier, Troy, and Xanthe are at war—with the arduous process of creating a new home on a hostile moon, with meddling corporations jockeying for control, with the new recruits battling for open positions on their team… and with themselves.

The future looks grim—and it’s about to get worse. Because even as the crew searches for a way to reconcile their differences and work together, a secret organisation is planning to destroy what they’ve accomplished, and finish off what Mother Nature has begun.

The Earth is dying. The end draws near. Only the Olympus Project can save us—if they can just figure out how to save themselves…

Fans of Margaret Atwood and Emily St. John Mandel will love the first book in the most thrilling dystopian science fiction series to come along in years.

My Review:

The Earth is dying. The world is ending. Humans are headed toward extinction. A plan has been put in place to save the Earth and the people who live on it. The Olympus Project has been formed. What is The Olympus Project you may ask? Well, it is a plan to colonize the moon for human habitat.

Teams have been gathered. Everyone must work together if they plan on going to the moon. Teams are competing to see which team will be the one to go to the moon. But things are not going as planned. Someone is sabotaging everything they do. They no more than get one thing fixed until another break.

The Olympus Project is seen through more than one set of eyes as we are introduced to the people who have been chosen for the project. I like reading stories where I get to see the story through more than one set of eyes. In my opinion, you get inside more than one character's head this way.

The Olympus Project is very intense and edge-of-your-seat action. Once you pick it up you will be hooked from beginning to end. The twists will keep you hanging on trying to figure out what is around the next corner. As you get to know each character you will be pulled deep into their world and once you pick your team you be rooting for them all the way to the end.

I would recommend The Olympus Project to all fans of dystopian and science fiction. Grab your copy of The Olympus Project today!
