‘Defy the Stars’ Defied My Expectations

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset


She’s a soldier – Noemi Vidal is willing to risk anything to protect her planet, Genesis, including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she’s a rebel.

He’s a machine – Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel’s advanced programming has begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he’s an abomination.

Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they’re not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they’re forced to question everything they’d been taught was true.

Rose-Worthy Features

            I knew from the moment I read about Abel, that I adored him. He was like this cute innocent but arrogant puppy. He would say the funniest things that had me dying of laughter. One thing that I really liked seeing from Abel was seeing him become more human as the book went on. Abel is one of the smartest mechs ever to exist and even though he is a robot, he has a soul and seeing him embrace it was nice. I didn’t mind Noemi but when she said mean things about Abel it made me hate her.

            I wasn’t the biggest fan of the storyline in the beginning but towards the end of the book, I couldn’t put the book down! The plot began to speed up and the book got way more interesting. The author began to pull at my emotions and I loved it and hated it all at the same time.

            The relationship between Abel and Noemi is sweet. They bicker and seem like complete opposites but they worked perfectly together.

Thorny Features

            When it came to reading about the action scenes it did feel like I was reading Star Wars but I wasnt a big fan. I found the action scenes to be a little boring and made it hard to pay attention to the book.

Final Thoughts

            Overall, I rate this book a 4.5 out of 5. I liked all the characters, ESPECIALLY Abel. The storyline was entertaining and the little jokes said throughout the book had me laughing. I definetly recommend this book but sadly this book is the next book off the list. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
