Synopsis: An outcast from her home — Shunned after a trip through the galaxy with Abel, the most advanced cybernetic man ever created, Noemi Vidal dreams of traveling through the stars one more time. And when a deadly plague arrives on Genesis, Noemi gets her chance. As the only soldier to have ever left the planet, it will be up to her to save its people…if only she wasn’t flying straight into a trap.
A fugitive from his fate — On the run to avoid his depraved creator’s clutches, Abel believes he’s said good-bye to Noemi for the last time. After all, the entire universe stands between them…or so he thinks. When word reaches him of Noemi’s capture by the very person he’s trying to escape, Abel knows he must go to her, no matter the cost.
But capturing Noemi was only part of Burton Mansfield’s master plan. In a race against time, Abel and Noemi will come together once more to discover a secret that could save the known worlds, or destroy them all.
In this thrilling and romantic sequel to Defy the Stars, bestselling author Claudia Gray asks us all to consider where–and with whom–we truly belong.
Have you ever read a series where as soon as you finished the first book you dove right into the second book and then suddenly find that you read both in less than two days? You know the kind of series that has you dead to the world, hiding in your closet so no one could disturb this perfect reading trace you are in? Well, this is how my day went for book one and two in this series. You may not believe me because the reviews are weeks apart and I had some hang-ups about the first book, but it is so true!
Defy the Worlds was much more than I was expecting. Noemi has grown so much by the end of the book that I am completely in love with her as a character. And that ending! Why does Gray have to play with my heart like that? This book has definitely added so much to the series so far and Claudia Gray knows how to take her readers on one hell of a journey.
I am so excited for the next book in this series and can’t wait to five into it… well after it’s written that is. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good multi-world story or just a well rounded Sci-Fi read.
