Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray is a series that I am so excited about! 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!
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.
Book Quotes: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray
The opposite of faith isn’t doubt. The opposite of faith is certainty.
Your soul is bigger than your programming.

That cover is really beautiful and is what first drew me to the book. The fact that it’s a YA Sci-Fi? Pretty awesome! I have to admit I haven’t yet read anything by Claudia Gray but now you’ve made me want to check her books out.
She is definitely one of my favourites! I hope that you enjoy her books if you do give them a try! 🙂
Nice pick. I don’t read much sci-fi these days, but it looks interesting. Hope you enjoy it. My WoW is a mystery – Dancing with Death by Amy Myers.
Sci-fi is hit and miss for me. I will try anything that Claudia Gray writes, though! 🙂
I haven’t read any of her books, but this one has me curious. It sounds so good.
That cover is catchy! Here’s my WoW for the week if you’d like to stop by!
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 hope that you enjoy it! 🙂
I’m a huge cover snob, and I normally don’t read books with covers that I find ugly XD I’ve never read a Claudia Gray book before, but all of her covers are stunning! I can’t wait to read this one too 😀

Hahaha! I have loved all of her covers, too! 🙂
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)
It should be really interesting to see what she does with that, for sure! 🙂
Ohhhhh, I love Claudia Gray! And I love books set in space like this! It sounds pretty fabulous!
I am not usually a big fan of space stories, but Illuminae and Gemina really blew me away. And with the author being Claudia Gray, I don’t think that I can resist this one.
We’ve seen Claudia Gray around a lot, but never picked up any of her book. Will definitely check this one out – it’s cover is so, so beautiful! <3 Great WoW choice!
I have enjoyed the other books by this author I have read so I for sure want to give this one a go! My WoW
The book sounds wonderful. Love the cover!
