Waiting on Wednesday: Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Today we are waiting for Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray!

For fans of the Firebird trilogy here is a new YA Science Fiction book by Claudia Gray!

Publication date: April 4th, 2017
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that's now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth's robotic "mech" armies for decades with no end in sight.

After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel's programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis--even though her plan to win the war will kill him.

Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel's devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.

I don't know what else to add... I just hope this book will be as good as her Firebird trilogy! The concept is galaxy based, not as cool as parallel worlds but still cool so let's see how it goes.

Are you excited about Defy the Stars?
