For me, the beginning was a little tiny bit slow. But once I was captured, I couldn't stop reading! The book takes place in 2051 when major upheaval hits the United States. The main protagonist. Annie, is lovable. She's my kind of friend. I WANT her with me when something happens! I also want Crystal and Vivian with me too! I'd go anywhere with these ladies. Toss in Jake, the twins and Tom and I'd have a full crew!
The characters are well developed, the plot is well thought out and develops at a rapid pace. It does NOT end on a cliff hanger so can be read as a stand alone novel. AND best of all, no typos and no glaring grammatical errors! Kudos to Ms. Weber for a job well done! I would definitely consider reading more works by this author.
As a side note, I know a few people that deserve to be "spaced". If your not familiar with the term, read the book! I'll bet you know a couple of people too!
At a protest in Washington US troops open fire into the crowd and the survivors are arrested as traitors and sentenced to slavery on the moon. Annie Peterson who lost her husband in the protest is sentenced as a doxy to service the men. Jake Johnsrud who protected Annie during the shooting is sentenced to mine. Along with the other inmates, they must fights to survive on the “rock” that is their lunar prison. Can Annie and Jake find happiness while handling the hardships of life in exile?
This steady paced story grabs the reader’s attention and doesn’t let go until the very end. The author brings this enticing story to life with vivid images and details that capture the imagination and strong compelling characters that are easily related and have the reader wanting to know more.
This dramatic tale is more drama with romance that just a romance because it portrays the hardships and the steps that this group of political prisoners and guards must go through to make a life on the moon with the romance entwined into the story not only of Annie and Jake’s romance, but others as well. The author does a great job of conveying the emotions and difficulties that the characters would have to go through during such a horrifying ordeal and in the acceptance and making of their new life, ensuring that the reader can feel as well picture what happens as it occurs.
To be completely honest I was thinking of the book as more romance and was a little disappointed at first as it started off kind of slow, but only because there was so much that the author had to convey for the reader to get totally caught up in the story. So while it seemed a little slow and maybe a little too much detail, it was still very engrossing and I am not sure how she could change it because it turned out to be a very riveting and enjoyable read.
