Waiting on Wednesday #89: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s book:

31423196Title: Defy the Stars
Author: Claudia Gray
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: April 4, 2017

Summary (from Goodreads): Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.

Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.

I am so excited about this new Claudia Gray series! I find her writing to be so beautiful. Space books have really intrigued me lately, and, while I haven’t read too many, I have loved every one I’ve picked up. What interests me the most about this book is the fact that there are both robots and humans, but they are against each other. I can’t wait to see what Defy the Stars has in store this spring!

    Claudia Gray has been on my TBR for a long time, but I have never gotten around to reading her series yet. But, I might read this one first since it involves space and action. Recently, space fiction has been my craving. Great pick!

    I haven’t heard all that much about this book until now. And I haven’t read any Claudia Gray in years (I never finished her first trilogy oops, and I have Fateful sitting on my TBR). This sounds quite interesting though. I’m really interested to see how the mech aspect translate into a novel (I’ve only ever really seen it in anime and movies before)
