I didn't think I was a sci-fi person until I read this book. You'll see romance in the synopsis but it all stays PG.

A breathtaking sci-fi epic that looks at the relationship between humans and AI across the galaxies.

I really enjoy Claudia Gray's writing, and I love this story concept. Anything space and androids, and I'm there, so I loved it for that. The two main characters were well-developed, and the plot had a clear end-goal.
However, a few of the plot points felt forced, as if they were just put in there for conflict, rather than to actually move the story towards its ultimate goal. I'd be interested to read the sequel, though I'm not grasping for it desperately.

I really liked it! Once I got passed the strange tense (third person present) it was a super easy read with loveable characters and plot twists littered throughout. I was also pleasantly surprised with the positive representation of people of faith in the world-building and character development. It was refreshing to see that something popular isn't void of that stuff yet.
Overall it was a clean, exciting read that I'd read again and will be awaiting the sequel to :)

This was a fantastic space adventure! Robots and romance are a great combo, add in some fantastic world building and you have a book that is something special. Bring on book 2!

Love Claudia Gray! My favorite series of hers is The Firebird Trilogy. (One Thousands Pieces of You, book #1). I was really excited for this new series, and it was everything I thought it would be. Action-packed, humorous, and full of classic sci-fi love, including spaceships and discussions about AI versus a human soul. A great read! Can't wait for the sequel.

I need the sequel now! This series is pretty addicting already. The dialogue has a good share of funny dialogues between the characters, the characters are so likeable, and readers will love the connection that establishes between Abel and Noemi.
