Review Enter the year 2051 and experience space exploration, cars gliding in mid-air, and covert missions of the CIA, NASA, Candle Runners, and global networks. You'll travel to India and Ayodhya, and join the fight for Mars. Discover all this and more in an incredible story in which an unconscious scientist holds the key. This compelling novel begs the question: Will there be a global war? -- BookZone, 1996

Rings Around the World has enough twists and turns to rival Lombard Street in San Francisco. Author, Soma Vira deftly moves the reader between sub-plots, relentlessly piling on the intrigue, to create a complex story of family relationships and world politics during the United States first mission to colonize Mars. -- Paulette Mouchet, author of House of Dreams

Something strange occurs in this multi-mysteries threaded SF/Fantasy thriller -- the American, Japanese, and Russian space ships launched together to colonize Mars disappear in deep space. The assumptions concerning the reasons launch the world's armed forces. In their midst, holding them back with their defiant hands, stand the American astronaut' troubled wife and three teenage children, guided by leaders who no one knows are really aliens in disguise. Alternately gripping and frightening, the novel plots lurking tensions that force you to keep turning pages. I specially loved the mysterious painting cut-up in four pieces on whose coming together may depend the fate of our ringed earth. Like Robert A. Heinlein, the first (to the best of my knowledge) Indo-American author, Soma Vira, writes about the fleeting-in future as if she's been there. -- Alan Zimmerman, President, Science Fiction, Mysteries, & amp;

Very political in tone, the author describes this book as, among other things, "a satire on the political and social lives of groups existing on the fringes of society as they shape and reshape their daily lives." Soma's skillful plot shaping is a work of art on the literary level. This exploration of the many uses of power is spiritually as well as spatially expanding. This is an excellent beginning to a wonderful series. -- Buzz Reviews, on-line Reviewer, 1997 --This text refers to the edition.

From the Publisher Nominated for the Golden Duck Award for outstanding children's science fiction, Earth Trap is a delight for kids and adults. If you enjoy sci-fi, you'll love Soma Vira's second space trilogy. --This text refers to the edition. pdf
