Meet your new favorite kickass heroine in this daring YA series by New York Times bestselling authors Rachel Caine and Ann Aguirre, a thrilling yet romantic futuristic adventure perfect for fans of Claudia Gray's A Thousand Pieces of You.
Petty criminal Zara Cole has a painful past that's made her stronger than most, which is why she chose life in New Detroit instead moving with her family to Mars. In her eyes, living inside a dome isn't much better than a prison cell.
Still, when Zara commits a crime that has her running scared, jail might be exactly where she's headed. Instead Zara is recruited into the Honors, an elite team of humans selected by the Leviathan—a race of sentient alien ships—to explore the outer reaches of the universe as their passengers.
Zara seizes the chance to flee Earth's dangers, but when she meets Nadim, the alien ship she's assigned, Zara starts to feel at home for the first time. But nothing could have prepared her for the dark, ominous truths that lurk behind the alluring glitter of starlight.
Oh, man, I devoured this book! It was so interesting, and Zara was a fantastic lead! I wasn't planning on reading this book when I did, and then I started it and couldn't put it down! I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning, and I don't regret it!
One of the cool things that I wanted to mention about this book, was that each of the chapters was named, "breaking" something, like out, up, free, and it signified a bit of the journey Zara would go on in that chapter, figuratively or literally. So awesome!
Everything about this book, I loved. Zara's past with her headaches and her religious dad. The guy whose daughter she stole from and how he wanted revenge. The brief interludes where Nadim narrated! Bea and Typhon and the others! Just so freaking captivating!
The bond between Zara and Nadim was deep, and unexpected! Zadim for the win! It did provide some complications, because Nadim wasn't supposed to bond like that until he'd grown old enough to go on the Journey. Ah, well, what doesn't kill you!
That ending was just epic! The fighting was intense since the bad guys have been fighting with the Leviathan for who knows how long and it's easy to see. All the other threats, they don't matter, all the focus will be on this!
Such an amazing, wonderful book, and I can't wait for the next one! So excited!
