Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
I audibly groaned when I figured out there was way too much plot for one book, but then I giggled. Yay! There’s more!

I didn’t just have to willingly suspend my disbelief for this plotline . . . I had to dig out some tenterhooks. The thing is, though, I’m all for some fantasy these days, and who doesn’t love makeovers and love triangles, especially in space, am I right? It’s possible I’d pretend to be reading something much more, um, mature if you asked, but you can bet I’ll be stacking this book (and the rest of the series) on my, “Yes, I’m an adult, but I’m not too old to LOVE this sort of thing” shelf.

4.5 stars


Would I recommend it: Yep. I’m downloading the next book in the series as soon as I save this post. =)




About the book – from Goodreads: Welcome to Novo: Your new home in Space

For Ariana Skyee, Planet Novo was everything it promised to be until the authorities introduced “The Calling” as their response to repopulation. Now, all seventeen-year-olds are to participate in this Bachelor-style pageant to find their perfect match, marry, and have children.

But that’s not Ariana’s only concern. Thanks to the government-sanctioned memory erase, she has no recollection of Zane, the mystery boy who haunts her dreams. Things are further complicated when the pageant commences and her feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify. Together, they start to realize not everything about their new home is as it seems.

Entangled in a dangerous web of deceit, Ariana sets out to identify the truth. Conflicted over warnings that Cal isn’t trustworthy and alarmed at the government’s increasing interest in her, she doesn’t know where to turn. But her search for the truth comes at a high personal price. When her world implodes, discovering the past shapes her future with devastating consequences.

  1. […] though I enjoyed Cal and Ari’s relationship dynamic in True Calling (you can read my review HERE),  I can’t say the same after reading this. I know part of Cal’s draw is that […]
