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.
Andromeda (Annie) a seventeen year old who has spent her life aboard a ship called New Dawn in deep space. The New Dawn is heading to a new planet they have named Paradise 21 where everyone on board will begin their new lives. Annie unlike everyone else is not ready to reach the new planet and leave the New Dawn. She is not ready for change. She wants everything to stay the same.
With only one month left before New Dawn reaches Paradise 21, Annie and everyone else her age has to take a test to determined what their jobs will be when they reach the planet. Annie has been a slacker her whole life and is worried about the test and what her new life entails. The test is not the only thing she has to worry about. The computer will also pick her lifemate for her. Annie is worried that she is going to fail the test and will not be paired with her best friend Sirius.
Upon arriving on Paradise 21 Annie starts seeing alien ghost who are trying to warn her of the danger to her and her people. Paradise 21 is not the paradise they believe it to be. Annie and the New Dawn are not the first ones to step foot on the planet. Annie knows she can't tell anyone about the aliens because they will think she is crazy. She realizes she will have to grow up and figure out what is going on and save everyone on her own.
When her friend Sirius' ship crashes and no one knows where Sirius and his crew are. Annie knows where they are and knows that she is the only one who can help them. Annie thinks she will have to find them and save them by herself. But she is wrong, Corvus her lifemate risks everything like his job and his life to help Annie save her friends.
I have read books about people who live on a ship in space before but I have never read anything and I do mean anything quiet like Colonization before. I have not stopped thinking about it since I read the last page. Colonization was one of the most amazing books I have read in a long time. Now I want to read more books in this genre. I can not wait to read the next book in this series. I would really love to read the New Dawn series too to find out how it all came about.
