Overview

Finding a new home has never been so dangerous.

Andromeda has spent all seventeen years of her life aboard a deep space transport vessel destined for a paradise planet. Her safe cocoon is about to break open as Paradise 21 looms only one month away, and she must take the aptitude tests to determine her role on the new world and her computer assigned lifemate. As a great-granddaughter of the Commander of the ship, she wants to live up to her family name. But, her forbidden love for her childhood friend, Sirius, distracts her and she fails the tests. The results place her in a menial role in the new colony and pair her with Corvus, ?the oaf?.

But when Andromeda steps foot on Paradise 21, her predestined future is the least of her worries. Alien ghosts from a failed colonization warn her of a deadly threat to her colony. And when Sirius's ship crashes on the far ridge in an attempt to investigate, she journeys to rescue him with Corvus.

Andromeda now must convince the authorities of the imminent danger to protect her new home. What she didn't expect was a battle of her own feelings for Sirius and Corvus.

Can she save the colony and discover her true love?

    I wouldn't say that I'm really a fan of science-fiction books, however Colonization was so entertaining and interesting that I mostly forgot the genre I was reading, and that's all thanks to the fantastic writing that kept me intrigued and anxious to see what was going to happen on the next page.
    Andromeda 'Annie' has been onboard a ship in deep space for all of her life headed to a planet named 'New Earth' after the Earth we know is no longer habitable, before they land she and all the kids her age have to take an aptitude test to determine what their jobs will be in the new world, they will also be assigned their lifemates, Annie who has developed feelings for her best friend Sirius hopes that they will be paired up, but Annie doesn't score very well where Sirius does and she gets a lesser job than Sirius and subsequently gets paired with Corvus, whom Annie thinks of a muscled 'oaf'.
    But looks as they say can be deceiving and after spending time with Corvus she develops feelings for him, he ends up being an extremely sweet and caring guy and Annie has to decide whether she can forget about her idea of being with Sirius and give Corvus the chance he deserves.
    But through all this people have been found suffering from some strange fatal disease after they land on the planet they have named Paradise 21, and what they discover will make them come to the realisation that their new paradise may be uninhabitable, but what do you do when you no longer have a way off the planet?
    I really loved this book, I'm intrigued to see where the rest of the books in the series will take us, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for the following books in the series.
