      It s written by Alexandra Monir so of course I knew there s going to be a lot of romance I didn t mind that at all because the pair wasn t too dramatic They were matched pretty well I was impressed with the setting and the whole theme of The Final Six and now I m very excited about the sequel because the cliffhanger was cruel Just as we were getting some information about the whole process of colonization, it ended Can t wait to see what s going to happen next.

      I received an ARC from HarperCollins Canada in exchange for an honest review Naomi and Leo were extremely fun characters to follow I adored the second half of the book, and found the drama and suspense very engaging The beginning I did find a bit slow, but once the mission preparation a began, the speed quickly sped up The unique space and science touches facts really add to the sci fi plot, and I did not find them overwhelming or anything I read the last 150 pages approx in one sitting, it had [...]

      This book kept me reading and curious about the many things that might happen on Europa I liked meeting all the different kids who were going to be saving the world I enjoyed the slight romance between Leo and Naomi I liked that the kids got somewhat enhanced by the shot I can t wait to read the next book in the series.

      Space books, for me, are rare for me to really love The concept has to be amazing to hold my attention Unfortunately, this book was not for me I had heard so much about it including the option for film and I was excited to get a chance to review it before the release date Sadly, it reminded me too much of Dare Mighty Things which I loved and I could not get past it.The plot just didn t seem plausible A lot of it was unconvincing and I m no expert, but the whole thing just didn t fly for me Thing [...]

      TheFinalSix Edelweiss The Final Six gives you an action packed novel with a great science fiction plot It has already been optioned as a movie, apparently It is a great concept about a group of six traveling to Jupiter after being put through a rigorous testing process The testing is important because these individuals will be scouting planets for our survival I hated the cliffhanger, but understood why the author set it up that way Series Dollars I will follow to see how the next one turns out.

    28. Trista on said:

      The concept of this book, at least the Earth side of the plot, was a little scary The mission to Jupiter s moon with teenagers as the main hope, even genius teenagers, might have been a little far fetched, but the natural disasters hitting Earth and making such a mission necessary felt very likely I ve been enjoying all the Sci Fi coming out this year and I think that with so much of the book being set on Earth, it stood out a little At first this book felt very similar to Nyxia, a book I loved [...]

    29. Christina (Ensconced in Lit) on said:

      The premise was interesting and I love sci fi with team building exercises, but unfortunately there are better books in this genre that have just come out, the most notable being Nyxia The twists come a little late and I didn t mesh with the main characters or their chemistry lack there of with each other I don t think I ll continue on this journey.
