Overview

Life should be simple for Cassie.

For the small population of Earth survivors who live on the Space Station Hope everything they do is planned and scheduled, down to the cyclical food menus, their roles in the station, even how many children they have.

Despite rigid controls directing her life, Cassie feels more out of synch than ever and worries she won’t find a place for herself within the station community. Perhaps that’s because she’s hearing things inside her head that can’t possibly be real. Or maybe it’s the regular elopements of her peers, heading off to a romantic future in the Married Quarter of the space station, whilst she’s never even been attracted to a boy – no matter how hard her best friend Ami pushes them at her. Then there are the odd questions her work placement partner Balik keeps raising. His questions are just as troubling for her as his distracting smiles and eyes that seem to see inside her.

As Cassie draws closer to Balik she finds that everything else in her life begins to shift. He tells her things that call into question the system they live within. She can't believe he is right, but at the same time she finds it hard to deny the sincerity of his ideas. Could there be a connection between Cassie’s problems and Balik’s questions? The truth will drag them both to a terrifying and deadly conclusion beyond anything they could have imagined.

    This was a great read!! I had to keep reading it until I finish

    This was a great read!! I had to keep reading it until I finished it and am eager to read the next one! I loved the way the author led you to think one way and then told you something that you hadn't even thought of as the story progressed. I also liked the way the title came out of the story. Even if you aren't a science fiction fan, you would enjoy this book immensely.

    One of my favorites of the year! My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

    One of my favorites of the year!


    My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.

    Disclaimers: I received an electronic copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

    My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: WOW! This book left me absolutely stunned. I had high expectations going into this one. I mean reread the synopsis and try telling me it didn't catch your attention. I read the synopsis and felt tingles running down my spine.

    The second I started reading this one I was prepared to be disappointed, I was prepared to realize I had set my expectations too high. But I wasn't expecting to be completely blown away.

    Hands down this is the best book I've read in months. It had a slow beginning. After reading the first four pages, I wasn't really sure what to think. By page ten, I was hooked. By page fifty, I couldn't think of anything but reading. I kept flipping the pages faster and faster.

    Jones' writing style was compelling and I adored the world and the characters she created. Cassie and Balik...definitely two of my favorite characters and I will admit I would definitely crush on Balik. I love love loved this book.

    This was one of those books that I finished and an hour later still felt like I was in the world of Space Station Hope.

    The ending was not a strong as I thought it would be, but it was still a strong ending that has left me dying to read the next in the series.

    Dystopian fans will eat this novel up, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any reader. Check this one out.

    In Summary: One of the best novels I've read this year. The world Jones' created drew me in from the very beginning and left me captivated from the first page to the very last page. I definitely can't wait to see what Jones' does in the sequel. Read this one...you won't regret it.

    Warnings/Side-notes: Only the most minor swearing. Other than that this novel is clean.

    The Wrap-up: This book is AMAZING! Yes, that needed to be put in all-caps. I wasn't expecting to be blown away, but I was. Dystopian at its best. Easily, in my top ten of the year.

    Love,

    Danica Page

    Just finished Hope's Daughter. From the beginning, you'll be wanting to read it all the time. The story is awesome. The characters are awesome. What happens when Earth seizes to sustain life? What happens when everything Cassie knew changes? Check this book out. You will not be sorry :)
