Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that's now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth's robotic "mech" armies for decades with no end in sight.
After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel's programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis--even though her plan to win the war will kill him.
Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel's devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.
Oh, wow, this book was absolutely amazing! I wasn't really expecting to read it, it was a random decision, but it was a great choice, because wow, it was an amazing book! I absolutely loved everything about it!
This world of Earth not being enough and so humanity spread to the stars, and one planet, Genesis, decided that it wouldn't abuse its planet, which caused a war...yeah. Not good. And that while they won 30 years ago, well, the war is back on, and things aren't going well! It was so interestign to read!
Abel and Noemi were so fantastic to read about! Abel, the singular creation by the maker of mechs, left alone for 30 years, and Noemi, who volunteered for a suicide run. They're on opposite sides, but programing means that he had to listen to her. It wasn't quite that simple thought!
I really enjoyed watching their journeys, the physical one they went on, planet to planet, and their personal journeys, of him breaking free of his programing, and her of seeing the worlds and changing her perspective, and falling in love! Just a fantastic read!
The ending was a little bit evil, and especially with the wait till the next book, but yeah, can't wait for more!
