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.
'Colonization' is the first book in a new young adult science fiction/dystopian series that follows the life of the teenage main character - Andromeda - and her adventure of starting a new life and a new colony on an unknown planet. The background story throughout the novel is very detailed and unique, which I thought added a lot of originality and made the book really interesting. The characters are all likable and easy to identify with, especially Andromeda and Sirius. I found myself rooting for them early on in the book and was anxious to see how their story would play out. The book is well written and fast paced, which made it an exciting and fast read. I thought that the romance was well done - not too mushy or corny - and with just the right amount of sizzle. There was plenty of action, adventure, suspense, and mystery woven into the storyline, which gave the book tons of layers and made it much more interesting. This is a well done first novel in a promising new dystopian series that readers are sure to love.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
