Summary: A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn’s a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck—now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world’s gaze.
Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker—a whiz kid and an urban warrior. He’ll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don’t dare touch.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide.
My Thoughts: Gosh, I was stuck on this one a while. It took me almost 2 weeks to read it and that is not like me at all.
We are back with more characters from the Starbound books and this time we spend more time with Sofia and Gideon. I had a hard time connecting with either character. I don’t know, there was just something about each of them I just couldn’t get with I guess. I don’t know if it was their personalities or just more the plot of this one.
Sofia is pretty good at convincing you to do things she wants you to do and Gideon is a computer hacker who can pretty much do anything.
I really liked the first two books but this one just left me feeling a little ewwww. I don’t even know why. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as the others. I just didn’t connect as great with this one.
Overall: I did finish this one, it just took me a while to actually finish it I guess. It’s not a bad book by any means, I just couldn’t get into it and I had to push myself to finish it. And I really liked the others in this series so far. Hopefully I like the next book by these authors more. And, a lot of 4 or 5 star reviews for this one, so my guess is it was just my reading mood and I just had a harder time connecting with these characters!! Be sure to give this one a chance especially if you’ve already read the others in this series.
Cover: Like it! I always love the color schemes of these books!
What I’d Give It:
