    This book was BRILLIANT! Completely and utterly amazing.  ((No

    This book was BRILLIANT! Completely and utterly amazing. 

    ((No spoilers))
    Beyond is basically about a girl who's abducted by human-like aliens. Aimee finds out that she has to wait five years until she can go home. Zak, one of the ship's inhabitants, interests her. How can she go home when she is too attracted to Zak? 

    First, the cover is PERFECT and the title matches the book really well. I really liked the characters, although I'm not a fan of how Aimee's a red head. Red hair is over used. Aimee's reactions were perfect to the situation! Some books either make the characters overly dramatic, or have no feelings at all. The writing style was different than I normally read. But it's a GOOD different. 

    I would recommend this book to SciFi lovers, and dystopian lovers. Although it wasn't dystopian, it had that kind of feel to it. I personally feel that this book is a book you can reread over and over. Yes, it was that good. Overall, I loved Beyond and cannot wait for the sequel!!! 

    Note: Thanks Maureen Miller for letting me review this book.

    Exciting, romantic, thoughtful.

    The fact that a story about a teenage girl, alien abduction, love and adventure in space seems so real and believable is a credit to the author,'s gifted writing. I enjoyed this book more than I have any other this year. I almost hated to pick it up and read more since it meant it would be finished sooner. The character of Aimee is a delightful, real young woman, curious and intelligent and attractive. Planning to study engineering in college, she is resourceful and unafraid, and drawn to the tall dedicated warrior Zak. Her growth in the story is a pleaure to watch, as is the opening of Zak's emotional self. The other characters are full and interesting (especially the electronic one!) and life aboard the Horus is full of fascinating surprises (and some dangers) and soon becomes as familiar as home to Aimee. A feared plague, attacks in space by enemy ships, and a crash landing on an alien world bring Aimee and Zak closer and more trusting of each other. I look forward to more adventures of Aimee and Zac.
