First of all, I’m a huge fan of Ashlynn Munroe’s, and when I saw this book I was expecting something along the lines of Given, which I loved. Well, though there were similarities, this book was totally different in a good way, and I absolutely loved it. Ashlynn has a great imagination, and I was totally absorbed in the book and curious about how the heroine Franny would survive in this hostile planet. I loved how the feelings of all the characters developed through the course of the story, and the ending was perfect. All I can say is if you’re a fan of sci-fi romance, go pick this up today because you don’t want to miss this fantastic story!
