Review:

As you guys know, I was a part of the cover reveal for this book a few months ago, and now it's finally time for my tour stop!

This book was seriously nothing like I thought it would be. It was pretty cool. I loved the stunning cover obviously, along with the synopsis they are what made me really interested in joining this tour!

I have just recently finished reading Delirium and for some reason this book reminded me of it. There were similarities, except well, this one is more science-fiction and based in space than the other. Though they're technically both in the future. I didn't really know I was that fond of some science-fiction novels until this one. Though I guess I am a huge fan of doctor who, so maybe that's why?

I enjoyed the choice of names - I mean, with names like Andromeda and Corvus how Could I resist? Not to mention the absolutely creative way Aubrie had built this world! It was so brilliant, I could just imagine being a part of it and living in this whole new world in the future with Space pirates and new worlds of safety. She described everything from the spaceship to the lifestyle and laws in a very creative and intriguing manner. I am so glad I got a chance to read this book. The writing was very flowing and easy to follow through with. So were the characters, I quite like them!

Rating: 3/5
