About Empire of Mars by Stephen Darnell:
On ancient Mars two races coexist uneasily. The Martian god-Emperor is never seen in person, but when the horrific truth behind the source of imperial power is uncovered, a massive deception is revealed.
65 million years in the future astronauts from Earth locate a strange artifact on the surface of the Red Planet, providing a link with its distant past. The discovery will change people’s view of Mars forever, and pose a growing threat to both the mission and the lives of the isolated band of pioneers themselves.
