This week’s book: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray
Author: Claudia Gray
Publisher: Little Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: April 4, 2017
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.
Fast-paced, romantic, and captivating, Defy The Stars is a story about what it means to be human, about deciding what you truly believe in, and about finding your place in a dangerous world.
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!
