Firstly, the writing style.
And then I got it: it is condescending. This is a YA book, but the writing style gave me the impression that the author had written this book for a much younger audience. Secondly, Noemi. Thirdly and finally, Abel left me unmoved. He is the machine—so not human—that Noemi discovers in an old spaceship. He thinks like a robot, speaks like a robot and certainly acts like a robot. But he looks like a human… mostly.

View all 21 comments. I've been so excited to read this book ever since I found out about it in November last year. Getting an advanced copy of this book basically made my life and I don't think I've stopped screaming in excitement since I picked it up. I'm complete trash for this author, and honestly she never disappoints. Let's be real, it would have taken a lot for me to give this book any le "We were both looking for each other the whole time. Let's be real, it would have taken a lot for me to give this book any less than 5 stars.
Claudia Gray has always been a must read author of mine and I completely adore her work. I've been reading her books since I was 11 years and I'm still in love with her stories at This book was an amazing space adventure and I adored every single second of it. It's depressing thinking about the long wait for the next book which doesn't even have a publication date yet.
This book is spectacular and I'd recommend it to everyone. Sci-fi is not my genre of choice. I much prefer fantasy and often sci-fi appears to be intimidating and rather confusing. However, I will always read sci-fi from this author. Her other series, starting with A Thousand Pieces of You is one of my all time favourite trilogies and it was really the first ever sci-fi book I had read.
Claudia Gray has a way of writing sci-fi that's epic and incredible, while still remaining easy to understand and follow. This book is a full on space adventure that I'd compare to books like Illuminae and Gemina , if they were written in narrative format. If you want a little sum up, this book follow Noemi, a soldier from Genesis, and Abel, who is a mech imagine AIDAN from Illuminae if AIDAN had a body and wasn't as crazy who has been trapped on a spaceship for the past 30 years because he was deserted. Despite the fact that they should kill each other, they form an unlikely alliance and try to fix problems that are way bigger than they anticipated.
Basically, Earth has become overdominating for the other planets and they have had enough. War is looming and everything is about to get a whole lot worse if Noemi and Abel don't do something about it. These characters. I love them. I loved seeing inside the intricate workings of Abel's mind because he is a machine, a very human-like machine. His mind works so differently to Noemi's and it was honestly refreshing seeing the comparison between the pair. Noemi was an amazing heroine. I loved her character.
She was such a kick ass, self sacrificing person and I honestly enjoyed every second of her story. She's literally put the weight of the world on her shoulders and she's willing to sacrifice her own life for the safety and happiness of those she cares about - even sometimes random strangers. I always struggle to talk about characters that I really like, so I'll wrap it up here on Noemi.

Sometimes she wishes she could turn herself inside out. The way people would see the good in her before they saw the bad. He's definitely a unique character and I wanted to cry every time he mentioned how alone he was. He's a one of a kind mech and he's been isolated for 30 years basically thinking "it's okay, they'll come back for me", when really no one has bothered to come and get him. His growth throughout this book is actually really awesome to see.
I mean, he's a mech and yet he struggles and everyone else struggles with how close to human Abel may be. He's a mech, yes, but his inner workings really do feel human and watching him deal with that fact is great. When he started to feel things he keeps brushing it off as "oh no I must be broken". Let's talk about how torturous the waiting for the next book is going to be. God dammit I am not okay. I feel like it's a fairly perfect ending because it's not too big of a cliffhanger but it'll definitely ensure that people will read the next book. You can bet that I'll be spending the next 12 months thinking about how much I want the next book!
I might eventually come back and edit this review after the book comes out with some spoilery thoughts, but for now I'll just keep it spoiler free! Pre review: Gather round friends, it's time for a story. There was once a girl named Caitlin who has been obsessed with Claudia Gray's work ever since she found Gray's novel Evernight when she was only 11 years old. Basically, this book was her Twilight replacement.
For years she cherished those books and was ecstatic when she discovered that Gray was writing a sci fi series, starting with A Thousand Pieces of You.

She adored that trilogy and cried when it ended in late Now, when Caitlin, now 19, caught word of this new book, Defy the Stars , she was beyond excited because more sci fi from the author is amazing. She then realised that this book doesn't come out til April, which is heartbreaking, so she tried really hard to get an ARC. By some crazy fluke, she ends up with an ARC. Basically, Caitlin can be found crying in happiness because she is scraming over this book.
