In the beginning, I was totally hooked. It felt a lot like Aurora Rising: girl wakes up hundreds of years – or in this case, a thousand years – late from cryosleep and everyone she knew is dead and the future is cray. Girl out of time! The girl’s name is even similar – Andromeda (Aurora), or Andra (Auri) for short – maybe not the best decision? But that’s where the similarities to Aurora Rising – as well as my […]

Caution: Possible spoilers for Aurora Rising HOLY. SHIT. YOU GUYS. This was my most anticipated 2020 release, and it did NOT disappoint! It was just as amazing and epic and mind blowing as Aurora Rising was. No second book syndrome here! I devoured this book within 24 hours of receiving it (and may or may not have screeched like a banshee and done a happy dance when it arrived, heh). Feeling so tiny makes me realize just how big what […]

Holy crap, WHY did I wait so long to read this?! I’d heard of it, but never really heard ABOUT it. I knew it existed, it was on my Goodreads TBR, but I never really looked twice at it. I recently posted in the Epic Reads Book Club group on Facebook looking for obscure and underrated books and someone suggested this one. I went and looked it up, and: Sentient alien spaceships?! Give me NOW! I went and bought it […]

Hooboy *takes deep breath* This is not going to be pretty. Honestly, I should have just DNFed this book. The only reason I didn’t is because the world was intriguing and in the beginning I was really interested. But sadly, the farther I read, the worse it got. I’ll start with the positive: The concept was FANTASTIC. In the beginning, I was so onboard! It felt so much like Waterworld, which I love. The idea of a post-apocalyptic world of […]

I absolutely LOVED this origin story of how the crazy yet endearing AIDAN that we know was born! It’s kinda creepy, because you can see where he’s coming from even as he makes horrific choices. He always has the best interest of the fleet in mind, but is murder justifiable for survival? It brings into question humanity, and the morality of weighing one life against many, or even one deemed more valuable. Chilling! Even though this was only 82 pages, […]

Holy crap, no second book syndrome here! It’s very rare that I love a sequel almost as much as the first book, but this one really delivered. I highly suggest reading this book BEFORE reading my review – going in, you know basically nothing about the plot because the synopsis doesn’t give you much. It’s so hard to talk about this book without giving anything away! So if you want to go in blind and be surprised like I was […]
