From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Lost Stars and Bloodline comes a thrilling sci-fi adventure that Kass Morgan, bestselling author of The 100 series, calls "startlingly original and achingly romantic...nothing short of masterful."She's a soldier--Noemi Vidal is willing to risk anything to protect her planet, Genesis, including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she's a rebel.He's a machine--Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel's advanced programming has begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he's an abomination.Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they're not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they're forced to question everything they'd been taught was true.An epic and romantic adventure, perfect for fans of The Lunar Chronicles and Illuminae.

Review

Noemi is from the planet Genesis that has found a way to make their lives mostly superior to the rest of the solar system. Noemi is out on trial run for the masda run, which will be the end of her life, but she believes it also will give her planet more time to mount a defense from
Earth. While she is out, she encounters a wrecked ship where she attempts to save her copilot life and meets a machine (mech) named Abel. Abel has been trapped for 30 years on this ship, hoping to one day reunite with his creator, Mansfield. Abel ends up on a long journey of discovery with Noemi, and both end up questioning all they have ever known about humans and machines. About what their life course is supposed to be. They are a slow-burning romance in this sci-fi adventure, and I can’t wait to see how this all plays out.
