Tell your friends!

So, I picked up these books a while ago, and since this year I’m focusing on trying to get through series, I decided to try this one. I got the covers when they were the pretty futuristic head one, which I liked more, but these probably convey genre better.

Anywho, I enjoyed these books so much that I binged the entire series. My recommendation is definitely to pick up the boxset, but if you need more, feel free to keep reading. I have reviews for all three books, but you may only want to read the first one, as subsequent reviews have spoilers for the earlier books. Or just skip the description, as the My Review sections are spoiler free. 😀

**Oh, and good news for my more sensitive readers! This series is clean (I think there may be one or two instances of mild language, and no sex).

My Review of the Trilogy:

I got all three books, but if you want to read this story, you’ll want all three, immediately. Buying the omnibus is a smart decision.

This sci-fi adventure is dark, gripping, romantic, and seriously will not quit. To start is to have to finish. And the ride is so worth the binge.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Genre: Young adult, Sci-fi

My Description:

Being a pacifist isn’t easy, especially when you’re a teenage ambassador for a very unforgiving emperor.

Vera didn’t want to break the rules, but when an important man took away the closest thing she had to family, she breaks the one, unforgivable rule, and defends herself by killing him. Now she’s trying to work off her sentence by accepting an impossible mission, one that’s meant to kill her. Can she and her new guardian survive, or is her number truly up?

My Review

Ahhhhh! This was fantastic. The romance, the danger, the impossible odds. I read book one in a flash, and was grateful that I had books 2 and 3 already loaded. The action doesn’t stop, and it’s sooo good, and soooo addictive. Seriously, if you pick up the first book, do yourself a favor and get the other two now.

My Description

**Warning: Spoiler for book one**

She beat the odds and rescued her cousin, but Vera just can’t get out of it that easy. Now she’s condemned to a new planet, separated from her guardian, and trapped in a new, wild prison. The planet is beautifully dark and fraught with danger, including shadows that seem to have a darker intent than just killing them all — though they make a spectacle of killing by turning their victims into mushroom fodder. Nice. Looks like Vera is doomed once more.

My Review

The action doesn’t stop, and though the romance takes a heavy hit, we get glimpses of Vera’s guardian that help keep hope alive. Seriously, I couldn’t stop reading. So glad I had the entire trilogy when I started, because once you start, you just have to find out how it ends.

What a wild ride!

My Description

**Warning: Spoilers for book 2**

Vera managed to escape the prison planet and reconnect with her guardian, but now she has to unseat the man who has tried time and again to destroy her life, and has literally destroyed the lives of her entire family–well, nearly. The emperor is far too powerful for anyone’s good, and he’s destroying his people to try to gain more power. But with a shadow army at her back, Vera may just have a chance. Or does she?

My Review

Holy wow! I’m so glad I had all three books. I binged this series hard. The action, the romance, the out-of-this-world, yet oh-so-familiar drama is so gripping it won’t let go until you’re done. Like, seriously. Clear your plate and snap up the entire trilogy, because once you start, you won’t be able to quit until the story reaches it’s end.

And again, if you’re thinking of buying these books, I really recommend just snapping up the boxset. So worth it!
