Fun. Devour. Enthralling. Exciting. Genre changing.

A few of the words I use to describe this book. One doesn't simply read as you consume this book. Its s fast read. I read this in about 6 days, simply reading on my my lunch hour. If you started this .book on a plane ride from NY to LA, you could be finished by the time you land.

It does help if you read the first book, but I don't think it is a requirement. I would suggest you do because like Gemina, is a fast read and the visuals, pictures, illustrations and "email reprints", are so cool to rip through.

This is the perfect summer read.

One of the most creative and beautifully crafted books I have ever read. An excellent story that engages on a variety of levels - visually, thought provoking and emotional. If you are into sci-fi and thrillers, you'll love this book. Although it is not a typical sci-fi novel, it has numerous elements of the genre in addition to a nod toward 2001: A Space Odyssey and Star Trek.

I HIGHLY suggest that you buy the hardcover (or paperback when available), and NOT an ebook. This work needs to be viewed on paper and not a Kindle or Nook-like screen.

This is the first book I've read from these authors and I had high expectations for them after reading a not-so-good sci-fi book and it just exceeded them and blew me away so where do I begin with this masterpiece? It begins with Tyler graduating from Aurora Academy but he was held up when he rescued Aurora from cryo-sleep so he missed the Draft and now all he has is a bunch of misfits that nobody wanted and already this hooked me in. The first 200 pages of the book were nicely done since it introduced the world it was set in as well as the main characters Tyler, Aurora, Kal, Zila, Finian and Scarlett and they go and explore the world as graduates however something is off with Aurora and a bigger threat is imminent that will come into play later on. The next 200 pages were a bit slow but it built up towards the end as the crew tried to find out what was going on with Aurora and other investigations; turns out that Aurora had telekinesis but few people have this ability and she sometimes becomes mindless and tries to go back to her home even though it's blocked off by interstellar law. In the last 100 pages, there was a big battle on an old colony planet infected with vines seen earlier and Aurora became part of that but broke free, ending it in a cliffhanger and what a ride it was. If you like science fiction books I can't recommend this book highly enough since it was so remarkable from beginning to end.… (lisätietoja)
