*I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Parents can have high expectations for their children but Cassiopeia has to live up to a new nation's idea of her. Her parents were famous scientists helping found a colony on the planet Arcadia. Her mother passed away before reaching the planet. Terrorists attack just days before they start their new life on Arcadia and her father is murdered. Or so the government says. Cassie believes her father was kidnapped, not murdered but no one will listen to her. She takes on her father’s job to gain access to the information needed to save him. Along the way, she meets Javen and Max which tugs her deeper into conspiracies behind the new colony.
Magic but in the form of misunderstood science is one of my favorite magic types. I really appreciate the concepts Jenetta Penner puts forwards in saving the world and creating a new colony but this one just wasn’t for me.
I really appreciate the character building and the descriptions of both boys has me torn in who I support as the romantic interest. The narrator did a good job with emotions and descriptions in her voice as well. I just had a hard time getting through it and won't be reading the sequels.
