This is the thrilling and romantic sequel to Defy the Stars from the New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Lost Stars and Bloodline.An outcast from her home -- Shunned after a trip through the galaxy with Abel, the most advanced cybernetic man ever created, Noemi Vidal dreams of traveling through the stars one more time. And when a deadly plague arrives on Genesis, Noemi gets her chance. As the only soldier to have ever left the planet, it will be up to her to save its people...if only she wasn't flying straight into a trap.
A fugitive from his fate -- On the run to avoid his depraved creator's clutches, Abel believes he's said good-bye to Noemi for the last time. After all, the entire universe stands between them...or so he thinks. When word reaches him of Noemi's capture by the very person he's trying to escape, Abel knows he must go to her, no matter the cost.
But capturing Noemi was only part of Burton Mansfield's master plan. In a race against time, Abel and Noemi will come together once more to discover a secret that could save the known worlds, or destroy them all.
In this thrilling and romantic sequel to Defy the Stars, bestselling author Claudia Gray asks us all to consider where--and with whom--we truly belong.


There a lot of action, political turmoil, and ethical discussions about organic mechs. Able is constantly questioning his motives that surround his developing relationship with Noemi. In the course of the story, we conclude what Mansfield’s goal with Able was and how his daughter has carried on his legacy. The technology that a human soul or essence can be moved into a mech and making them almost human may save humanity in the end. The ending on this one is a cliffhanger that may crush your soul or may have you questioning where exactly this is all going. The creativity of this series is so unique and the underlying romance makes for a very compelling series.
