I love Ashley Poston. I adored Geekerella and I was lucky enough to meet her at BookCon and I have talked to her a couple of times over Twitter. She’s so sweet and nice and humble and amazing. So of course I was drooling over her new book.
The cover is amazing and I love sci-fi, so I was thrilled when I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC.
The release date for this books is February 27, 2018, which is a long way away, so I’m not 100% sure how the rest of the marketing will go for this. But from what I’ve seen it looks like every other sci-fi, ragtag crew, rich-poor character book out there. That’s just from what I’ve seen. Again, I could be wrong.
Let me tell you though, IT IS NOT. AT ALL. It is ten times better (not that those books aren’t good, there’s just a lot of them out there these days). The summary of this book does not do it justice. It completely alludes what this book is actually about and I think that’s actually really smart. I think it makes twists actually twists that wouldn’t be twists otherwise. Very clever.
It took me a bit to get a grasp on the world, but it was so worth it.
A throwaway character, a character that I’ve seen throughout books that is written off and not really ever heard from, IS A MAIN CHARACTER. (I’m going to say it because no spoilers.) It has it’s own story line and contributes to the overarching story and is important and lovable in a unique way and I love it so much. I love everyone in this book so much, even the characters I feel I don’t know too well.
This book is so heartbreaking. Some of the things that happen are just downright cruel and I demand justice.
I cannot wait to see what happens next and watch this story tie together and see where it goes. I’m ready for Book 2 even though the first book doesn’t come out for five months. Book 2 isn’t even guaranteed either, but I will sign any petition to make it happen; I’ll even make my own.
