Read full description of the books:
Eighteen-year-old Melinda Ashley never wanted to go to Mars. She had her life all planned out - marry Ross and become a teacher. but when her estranged father convinces her to take an interplanetary vacation, she finds herself tempted to leave behind her comfortable existence on Earth. Mars isn't at all what she expected, and when she meets Alex Preston, a second-generation Martian colonist, she finds herself on a surprising new path. Sylvia Engdahl's classic novel has been revised and updated by the author to reflect new discoveries and research about Mars.

Read information about the authorAlthough she is best known as an author for Young Adults, Sylvia Engdahl's most recent novels, the Hidden Flame duology (Stewards of the Flame and Promise of the Flame) and the Rising Flame duology (Defender of the Flame and Herald of the Flame) are not YA books and are not appropriate for middle-school readers. These two duologies are quite different from each other and some readers prefer the second one; they need not be read in order. They are enjoyed by people who don't ordinarily read science fiction as well as those who do. For more information about them, watch the video trailer and visit her website. She welcomes comments from her readers.
Previously she wrote six novels for teens that are also enjoyed by many adults, all of which were first published in the 1970s by Atheneum and which have been republished in both hardcover and paperback editions by different publishers in the 21st century. All except her Newbery Honor book Enchantress from the Stars were updated; particularly important in terms of relevance to today's readers are the revisions to The Far Side of Evil and Journey Between Worlds. Her trilogy Children of the Star (consisting of This Star Shall Abide, Beyond the Tomorrow Mountains, and The Doors of the Universe) was republished in a single volume as adult science fiction. All her novels except Enchantress are currently available in ebook editions.
She has also written a nonfiction book, The Planet-Girded Suns: The History of Human Thought About Extrasolar Worlds, of which updated and expanded paperback and ebook editions were published in 2012. Most of the nonfiction books listed under her name were edited, rather than written, by her as a freelance editor of anthologies for high schools.
Engdahl says, "I list only a few of the books I read here. Those that appear are just some of the best ones about subjects I deal with in my novels."
