3 1/2 Stars
The Final Six may be somewhat derivative, but thanks to the two engaging main characters, Naomi and Leo, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. While I thought the secondary characters needed much more development, Naomi and Leo were so likable and relatable, they kept the story going. The theme of of an Earth in its dying throes due to climate change, isn’t new, but the descriptions of the extreme weat ...more

This is a fast-paced dystopian/sci-fi novel with an interesting concept and a lot of romance.

I really enjoyed this book. I think the ...more
Duuuuuude. I need book 2. NOW! ... more intelligent thoughts coming soon (ha!).
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book is about 24 teens who get drafted into a space training program where the final six will be sent to Jupiters moon in the hopes of making it habitable for a human civilization. With Earth being ravaged by mega storms and a rising tide they're humanities last hope. Our female main character is a science prodigy who's more aware than most the risks involved with this mission and her gut is telling her the mission leaders are hiding something from them. With nothing to go back to and nothi ...more
I received an e-ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*
A strong, diverse and well-written sci-fi with characters I could relate with. There was a lot of romance which in some cases shadowed the plot.
One thing that this book made me scream about? The cliffhanger.
I really hope for a sequel!
