Paradise 21 + Giveaway




Paradise 21

by Aubrie Dionne

Aries has lived her entire life aboard mankind’s last hope, the New Dawn, a spaceship traveling toward a planet where humanity can begin anew—a planet that won’t be reached in Aries’ lifetime. As one of the last genetically desirable women in the universe, she must marry her designated genetic match and produce the next generation for this centuries-long voyage.

But Aries has other plans.

When her desperate escape from the New Dawn strands her on a desert planet, Aries discovers the rumors about pirates—humans who escaped Earth before its demise—are true. Handsome, genetically imperfect Striker possesses the freedom Aries envies, and the two connect on a level she never thought

possible. But pursued by her match from above and hunted by the planet’s native inhabitants, Aries quickly learns her freedom will come at a hefty price.

The life of the man she loves.



My Thoughts:

Paradise 21 is a great sci-fi read. Aries is a strong and independent heroine in a time when people don’t get to choose their future. What matters most is to continue the species till they find a new word to live in. Computers and DNA decide the how the lives of the last humans should be.

Earth has such elevated levels of radiation that humans had to leave it behind and look for a new home, but not all of them could escape. I found it fascinating to discover bit by bit how they got there, in this situation. And even more interesting is how they deal with the problems and obstacles they find on their way. I love reading about new cultures and possible “end of the world” scenarios.

I thought that the author had a few difficulties to keep a linear story. Switching between characters often can make the readers tired, so I would pay attention to that. I had a good experience reading this book and recommend it to other sci-fi fans like me. You’ll enjoy this story, I could totally picture it as a Star Trek episode!


This book was received through enchanted book tours- That doesn’t affect my opinion about the book.
