"I listened to this whole series on audio with a full cast I don’t usually go for futuristic adventure type books but I found myself having so much fun with the characters. Each character was so individual and well placed, there were many times were I almost wanted to cry and just as many I found myself giggling. There is a lot going on through out the series and I found it helpful each book had a recap. Definitely a book you want to pay attention to but highly recommended!"
"4.5 -<br/><br/>Ahhhhh. Just what the doctor ordered. <br/><br/>If you’re a fan of Star Trek or just sci-fi in general, I suggest giving this a shot! It really reminded me of Star Trek, not even gonna lie. The crew is similar but way younger at around 19 each. <br/><br/>The prose was humorous. I did enjoy the snarkiness and the jokes but sometimes it was a little much. My main problem is that is the POV switching. It definitely gives the story a unique twist and helps shape it. It is hard to follow, though. There were some instances where I had to go back and reread a section because it made no sense. <br/><br/>There is romance in this. I found it to be sweet and it fits the story! It was tastefully done. I personally really enjoyed it.<br/><br/>Can’t wait for book two!"
"It has a good story idea and some of the characters are interesting, but... It's way too hetero for my liking. Usually I can look past it but this book is very in your face hetero for the first few chapters. Main girl wakes up Naked in a glass room, and main guy ends up naked in the glass room next to hers, all you read next is the main girl ******* heavily for the main guy. Then the next few chapters, that's the main girls personality. It's... meh."
"I could never choose!"
"I love this book! Sci-fi isn’t usually my thing, but I fell in love with it. The character’s thoughts are portrayed in such a unique way and it really helps you grab onto their emotions and past. I love each and every one of the characters in this book and the story is beyond imaginable. Totally recommend to anyone who likes non-fiction books. "
