Summary

It’s a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

Review

These Broken Stars was nothing I expected yet everything I wanted. I really enjoyed reading this book, it’s definitely one of my favourite reads of this year.

First off, that cover! I love the cover, I love the font and the way it takes up most of the picture and is displayed over the main picture. I also love the spacey look, I always love covers that look more like space art than book covers though.

These Broken Stars did start off a little slowly in my opinion, the first thing I thought of was the movie Titanic. The different status’ between Tarver and Lilac, the way the higher status treated the lower status, located on a ship even if it was travelling through space. However as the story progressed it was nothing like Titanic and became it’s own story. The first few chapters introduce the characters, their circumstances and how different they are from each other. I found myself wishing it would hurry up so something different would happen, luckily for me the book didn’t dwell too long on the beginning and life on board the Icarus.

These Broken Stars is a love story, when I had heard that about this book I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I was wrong. I loved this. This love story isn’t insta-love, the characters don’t pine after each other, they don’t think stupid things like how ‘intoxicating’ they smell to each other or how much they want to take each others clothes off. I mean I’m sure they do think that but we don’t read it as it’s not important pertaining to their survival. This love story is raw, heart warming and also heart wrenching.

Lilac and Tarver somehow manage to get escape the Icarus as it’s somehow pulled out of hyperspace too early. Their escape-pod crash lands on a planet that they realize has been terraformed by one of the large companies, yet they seem to be alone which is puzzling and perhaps worrying. Tarver takes immediate action and works to keep himself and Lilac alive, even if he can’t stand the woman and she criticizes everything he does.

I ended up really liking both Lilac and Tarver, I was glad we got to see each of their points of view in the story. The romance builds up and sneaks up on them without them even realizing which I loved. It felt believable despite their differences and status’. I mean I may have even cried at one point which never happens, I’m never moved or invested enough in a story to really feel it as much. But These Broken Stars ‘gave me all the feels’ as everyone puts it. I was very invested in this story and these characters, I was even invested in this world and the planet. These Broken Stars was just brilliant.

Overall These Broken Stars was a compelling read. It was intense getting to see how Tarver and Lilac had to work together to survive, it was addicting to read, the world was rich, the characters were rounded, and the universe that this series is set in is scary. I loved it. I completely adored this book and I cannot wait to read the next love story set in this series!

In Summary:
– These Broken Stars was an amazing read. I loved every minute of it. It was addicting and I became highly invested in the story, the characters, the world and the planet.
– The beginning did start slowly but that didn’t last long, soon enough the story raced along and I couldn’t get enough of it.
– These Broken Stars is a compelling love story, it was deep and raw and I enjoyed reading it.
– This is one of my favourite books that I’ve read so far this year! Which I think is a huge statement.

[Review #122] Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon

Zenn Scarlett Cover - Review Title: Zenn Scarlett
Series: Zenn Scarlett
Book one
Author: Christian Schoon
Genre: Science Fiction
Young Adult
Rating: 
[Goodreads | Book Depository]

Summary

When you’re studying to be exoveterinarian specializing in exotic, alien life forms, school… is a different kind of animal.

Zenn Scarlett is a resourceful, determined 17-year-old girl working hard to make it through her novice year of exovet training. That means she’s learning to care for alien creatures that are mostly large, generally dangerous and profoundly fascinating. Zenn’s all-important end-of-term tests at the Ciscan Cloister Exovet Clinic on Mars are coming up, and, she’s feeling confident of acing the exams. But when a series of inexplicable animal escapes and other disturbing events hit the school, Zenn finds herself being blamed for the problems. As if this isn’t enough to deal with, her absent father has abruptly stopped communicating with her; Liam Tucker, a local towner boy, is acting unusually, annoyingly friendly; and, strangest of all: Zenn is worried she’s started sharing the thoughts of the creatures around her. Which is impossible, of course. Nonetheless, she can’t deny what she’s feeling.

Now, with the help of Liam and Hamish, an eight-foot sentient insectoid also training at the clinic, Zenn must learn what’s happened to her father, solve the mystery of who, if anyone, is sabotaging the cloister, and determine if she’s actually sensing the consciousness of her alien patients… or just losing her mind. All without failing her novice year….

Review

Zenn Scarlett was a very unique book. I didn’t expect it to be so different when I picked it up but this wasn’t a bad thing. It was actually very refreshing to read something so different that held my attention so well.

Zenn Scarlett is a science fiction mystery based on Mars, humankind has populated several new worlds and has discovered many alien species, including the Indra that are the creatures that can travel through space faster than the speed of light. This alien creature is the ‘animal’ that powers all of the space ships, but recently Indra ships have been completely disappearing without a trace. No one knows what happens or who is hijacking them. Zenn Scarlett is a novice training to be a full fledged exovet; an exovet is pretty much a veterinarian that specializes in alien ‘animals’ rather than just normal animals as humankind knows them. Recently she’s been making a lot of mistakes that could cost her and her uncle Otha everything, on top of that she hasn’t heard from her father who is working on another world in months, Liam Tucker is acting unusual around her and she doesn’t know what to make of it, and she keeps having these weird experiences with the animals where she feels everything they are feeling; if just for a moment.

I really enjoyed reading this book because it was so very different, I couldn’t put this book down, it dragged me in and had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I enjoyed reading about all of the different alien animals that Zenn helped get better, I loved her interactions with Hamish; a coeplet from another world, and enjoyed trying to put together the mystery. There was a lot going on in this book which I loved, there was never a dull moment because something was always happening.

However, I did feel slightly disconnected from this book at times. Most of these times were in the very long conversations that Zenn kept having with characters, I would be pushed out of the story and would start wondering why the conversation was still happening and how could it possibly be moving the story forward. At these times I did get a little frustrated because I became aware that I was reading a book instead of being immersed in a story, most of the conversations were obviously placed to give the reader more information about the world or Earth’s standing and why.

Overall, I mostly enjoyed Zenn Scarlett and cannot wait to read the second book!

In Summary:
– Zenn Scarlett is a very different and unique story. I really enjoyed reading it.
– There’s a lot that is going on in the story which I loved.
– Sometimes I did feel disconnected in the book, conversations would get so long that it would push me out of the story and I would start wondering why the conversation needed to be so long.
– Overall I really enjoyed this book!

[Review #118] Cress by Marissa Meyer

Cress Cover - Review - Lunar Chronicles Book 3 - Marissa Meyer Title: Cress
Series: The Lunar Chronicles
Book three
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Science fiction, fairy tale retelling
Young Adult
Rating: 
[Goodreads | Book Depository]

Summary

In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has

Review

Oh how I love this series! I absolutely loved Cinder and ScarletCress didn’t disappoint me.

Ever since we first saw Cress in book one I’ve been dying to hear her story, I wanted to know what Meyer had in store for the retelling (Alternate retelling? Based off of? Whatever you would like to call it.) of ‘Rapunzel’. Meyer definitely had everything planned out well and I loved it.

Cress has been locked in her little satellite for years as Queen Levana’s pawn. We learn that Cress rebels in her own secret way, she happens to be very talented at computer hacking. I loved this aspect about Cress, I thought it made her really interesting and intelligent. It stopped her from being ‘that crazy girl that’s lived in a cell for most of her life’. As a character I liked Cress although I did think her whole damsel and distress thing that she had going on was a little annoying, but it wasn’t pushed in our faces and I loved to see how that changed throughout the story.

Cress continues on not long after where Scarlet finished. The story progresses through multiples characters eyes, we even get to see a few chapters through the doctors eyes which I thought was interesting and needed for the storyline. The way the story intertwines with each character and their background is just amazing, maybe a little cliché for some parts but I still enjoyed it.

I loved this book! It was fun and exciting to read and I’m once again dying to read the next book in the series. Winter will be a very interesting conclusion. I just wish it wasn’t so long before it was released!

In Summary:
– I loved that Cress was a realistic character for the things she’s been through, as being locked in a tower for half of your life you can’t quite expect her to be completely normal. Although I was glad she wasn’t certifiably crazy. You could still relate to her.
– I love the way the story intertwines with each character and how they all relate to something or someone in one way or another. It’s cleverly done.
– Cress is just another book that I love in this series and I’m dying for Winter to be released! As always.

[Review #90] Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund

Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund Cover - Review Title: Academy 7
Author: Anne Osterlund
Genre: Science Fiction
Young Adult
Rating: 
[Goodreads | Book Depository]

Summary

With a past too terrible to speak of, and a bleak, lonely future ahead of her, Aerin Renning is shocked to find she has earned a place at the most exclusive school in the universe. Aerin excels at Academy 7 in all but debate, where Dane Madousinson of one of the most powerful men in the Alliance consistently outtalks her. Fortunately Aerin consistently outwits him at sparring.

They are at the top of their class until Dane jeopardizes everything and Aerin is unintentionally dragged down with him. When the pair is given a joint punishment, an unexpected friendship?and romance begins to form.

But Dane and Aerin both harbor dangerous secrets, and the two are linked in ways neither of them could ever have imagined. . . .

Review

Academy 7 surprised me. I liked this book a lot more than I expected.

Aerin has just managed to escape Vizhan; an X planet that she has lived on since her fathers ship crashed there years ago. Unfortunately her father passed away in the crash leaving Aerin to defend for herself on a planet that treats its people like slaves. Aerin finally manages to escape to her fathers ship which had been left in the field it landed in as a rusted piece of junk, fix it up just enough to leave the planet, and make her escape. Just when Aerin thinks her ship is about to die on her she is discovered by a passing Alliance space ship that saves her life. On this ship they give her a test which qualifies her to attend one of the universe’s best space academies,  Academy 7. As she is from a planet that is not apart of the Alliance she is all too aware she is illegally attending Academy 7, so she makes the most of all that is being taught in case she is found out and must leave.

Dane was brought up as apart of the military, his father being an Alliance General and a Council member, but coming from an abusive family he knows his father would never let him attend Academy 7. So when he finds out he is admitted to the school his older brother was denied from, he expects to be pulled out as soon as his father arrives back from his latest trade meeting. In fact when the time comes he insures to leave in a way that will embarrass is father. unfortunately for him his plan backfires and gets him in trouble, unbeknownst to Aerin whom happens to be in the wrong place and time she is dragged down with Dane and must face his consequences too.

What I loved most about Academy 7 was the world building. It interested me a lot, the political side, the technological side, the way the universe could be, the ideas behind it. I really liked that Aerin wasn’t stupid or a damsel in distress; she was very intelligent and knew how to fight for survival. She rivaled Dane in nearly every way. The relationship between Aerin and Dane grows throughout the story which I loved because it didn’t happen in an instant.

Overall, Academy 7 is a very enjoyable Science Fiction story!

Review

Reconnaissance is book two in the New Dawn series, I loved book one, Colonization.

In Reconnaissance we get to read Nova as our main character. Nova is extremely jealous of Andromeda and recent events, she’s even more angrier that her own life partner Sirius chose to trust Andromeda over her, she’s humiliated that Sirius betrayed her that way. Nova’s off outside cooling her head when she hears an extremely loud noise; a noise that The New Dawn couldn’t possibly make. After going exploring she discovers a huge alien ship over Planet 21’s forest beaming up the crystals that the colony need to help sustain life on the planet.

Nova finds herself the expedition leader assigned to discovering what this alien ship wants and on the colony’s life to make a peace with it. With Sirius as the navigator and other highly qualified team members they make their way to the ship, only to get beamed into the ship themselves and realise that they just might be in a whole heap of danger.

I rather enjoyed reading how Nova and Sirius tried to survive the aliens. The arachnids as they called them were scary and grossed me out, yet interesting to read about as they were more than just spider looking creatures with brain sacks on  their backs. I liked that they had a bigger purpose and a whole back story, it added depth.

Although I found it hard to like Nova, I couldn’t quite connect with her. I felt sorry for her at the beginning when we learn her family isn’t as functional as everyone thinks but that’s only because she never lets anyone find out, but I hated how she pitied herself and thought she wasn’t good enough for Sirius to love. Considering he had only just declared his love for Andromeda not too long ago. It was nice getting to see where their relationship led them.

The aliens ship was interesting and I had fun reading the action and the ending but I did feel like it was a little bit slow to start off with. Once the story progressed the pace took off and I found myself wanting to read more and more.

Overall I enjoyed Reconnaissance, I’m interested in seeing where this story goes. Especially after all of the hints that happened near the end of this book!

Rating: 
[Goodreads | Book DepositoryPaperback | Hardback]

Summary

Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceshipGodspeed behind. They’re ready to start life afresh–to build a home–on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.

But this new Earth isn’t the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed‘s former passengers aren’t alone on this planet. And if they’re going to stay, they’ll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed–friends, family, life on Earth–will have been for nothing.

RULED BY CHAOS.
ALMOST HOME.

Review

When I picked up the first book Across the Universe, I fell in love with the idea. A Million Suns made me fall in love with the series. And Shades of Earth has made this my favourite YA science fiction series. I am sad that it is over, but what an awesome ending for a great series!

In Shades of Earth Amy and Elder land the shuttle on Centauri-Earth with almost fifteen hundred people from Godspeed. Amy finally gets to unfreeze her parents and she can’t wait. Her parents are less than thrilled about the situation they find; mono-ethic people, the leader is their daughters age and they’ve gone backwards rather than forwards in technology. What everyone doesn’t expect when they step off of the shuttle are not the monsters that inhabit it but what may have inhabited the world before the monsters.

Shades of Earth was an epic ending, I can’t even explain how much I loved this book. The world was rich and expansive, the new characters weren’t a problem to get used to, and the constant questions I had running through my mind kept me plowing through this book. The world that Beth Revis created in this book obviously had a lot of back story. I thought it was amazing considering Revis practically had to create a whole new world and setting in the last book of the series while keeping the essence of the series as a whole. I definitely feel like she did this very well.

I really enjoyed reading this book, there were so many things going on and so many things being hinted at that at the beginning you really have no idea what way it was going to go. Half way through the book I started to feel like clues were being pointed out to us as if they were neon signs but as I read on I came to the realisation that those clues had been intended as neon signs. Because really they were distractions that deterred from the real twists and turns, the real story. They made me feel like I had everything all sorted out, but I realised I really hadn’t had anything sorted out.

Overall, Shades of Earth was definitely an Epic ending. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I definitely feel pleased that the last book met my expectations.

Similar: Paradise 21, Tundra 37, Colonization

In Summary:
– I thought this book was a great and exciting ending to the series.
– I really admired how Revis had created a whole new world from scratch.
– I liked how I was clueless to what was going on but so intrigued that I had to keep reading. And then once it was revealed I was surprised.

Summary

“Forbidden love on a paradise planet that’s anything but paradise…Dionne’s Colonization will keep you guessing.” – Cherie Reich, author of Defying Gravity

Finding a new home has never been so dangerous.

Andromeda has spent all seventeen years of her life aboard a deep space transport vessel destined for a paradise planet. Her safe cocoon is about to break open as Paradise 21 looms only one month away, and she must take the aptitude tests to determine her role on the new world and her computer assigned lifemate. As a great-granddaughter of the Commander of the ship, she wants to live up to her family name. But, her forbidden love for her childhood friend, Sirius, distracts her and she fails the tests. The results place her in a menial role in the new colony and pair her with Corvus, “the oaf”.

But when Andromeda steps foot on Paradise 21, her predestined future is the least of her worries. Alien ghosts from a failed colonization warn her of a deadly threat to her colony. And when Sirius’s ship crashes on the far ridge in an attempt to investigate, she journeys to rescue him with Corvus.

Andromeda now must convince the authorities of the imminent danger to protect her new home. What she didn’t expect was a battle of her own feelings for Sirius and Corvus.

Can she save the colony and discover her true love?

Review

When I first read the summary for Colonization I got extremely excited because I absolutely love science fiction and I love space. So I found this idea to be very appealing and interesting.

The New Dawn is a space ship that left old earth generations ago in search for a new viable planet to live on. It’s destined to land on Paradise 21, a planet covered in forest, that is liveable and has no threats. Well so all the tests thought. Andromeda is a teenage girl that is about to take the exams that assign her to her profession, which she must stick to for the rest of her life, and to her life mate, whom she has no decision in choosing.

Andromeda has never really studied hard, she would rather hang out with her best friend Seth whom she realises she has forbidden feelings for. She is terrified of what life will be like when The New Dawn lands on Paradise 21. All she wants is to live her life she’s already living and spend her days with Seth drifting in outer space. Unfortunately for Andromeda that’s not how life is to be. She gets assigned a menial job and her lifemate isn’t Seth.

When The New Dawn lands on Paradise 21 everyone is ecstatic, except Andromeda. What makes things worse is she starts seeing weird alien beings that no one else can see and no one believes what she’s seeing is real.

Colonization is a young adult science fiction book that had me speeding through the pages wanting to find out what happened next, what decision Andromeda made, and wondering if what she was seeing was real. Were there really ghosts? Was she going crazy? Who was going to believe her? I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It had me hooked. It was just the right mix of adventure, action, romance, and science fiction!

I thought the romance was extremely sweet in places. It had me smiling and giggling to myself as I read. The pace was just right, I was always interested in what was going on and I wanted to know what happened next. I found it difficult to put this book down to be honest. Which was okay because I finished it faster that way.

Overall, I really loved this book. It was exciting, entertaining, the romance was sweet and I read this book extremely fast because I was so invested. I thoroughly enjoyed it and couldn’t help but be taken along for the ride.

Colonization is an exciting young adult science fiction book with a side of sweet romance. It has you gasping, giggling, smiling and keeps you glued to the pages until you’re finished! 

I definitely recommend reading this book if you enjoy young adult science fiction romance!
