This week I chose Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray!
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.
Why I'm Waiting
Claudia Gray is a very well known YA author. I've only read Spellcaster and A Thousand Pieces of You, but I have liked both. I am thinking that I will LOVE this one. Some of my favorite young adult series are set in space, and I absolutely love the plot of this one. Forbidden romance is pretty much my kryptonite, and putting that in a science fiction setting makes me all that more excited.
Are you looking forward to Defy the Stars?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
