Synopsis: Eridani is the only woman on board The Heritage ship who hasn’t found herself a man, but she more than makes up for this lack of male interest when she is sent on a mission to perform covert operations on an alien planet, Haven 6 where she can find more info on how best to destroy them.
Review: When Eri goes on a mission to Haven 6, she never thinks she will meet anyone on the same level, let alone a man, but when she meets Striver, she falls for him. After a while he has her questioning her loyalty to those on The Heritage as she can understand his point of view on his people. He acts as leader of his people, and does a good job of keeping them from the cruelty of the outsiders who live over the wall.
- The cover art captures the two characters very well as you can identify with them now that there are faces you can put to them.
- Striver understands Eri’s plight at being ridiculed over her parents, while he doesn’t judge her on being different from her peers on The Heritage.
- The story is told in flashbacks, but if flashbacks aren’t your thing, this might not be for you.
- It is a complicated plot that can sometimes be overcomplicated.
- There is very little sex in this novel as it is meant for those of 16+ who are Young Adult readers.
Overview: If you liked book 3, then why not have a look at the previous two in the series. I’m sure they won’t disappoint.
