This is a very cool cover reveal not just because I’m a terribly shallow person who loves covers almost as much as I love chocolate, but because Colonization: Paradise 21 is a Young Adult sci-fi (with a little romance) continuation of Aubrie Dionne’s regular sci-fi romance series, A New Dawn, which I’m enjoying. I know it’s dorky of me, but when I have posts about sci-fi books, I can’t help but narrate them in my best Captain Picard voice. I just love Patrick Stewart.
Colonization: Paradise 21
By Audrie Dionne
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing
Publication Date: November 7, 2012
Genre: Young Adult Sci-Fi
Finding a new home has never been so dangerous.
Andromeda has spent all seventeen years of her life aboard a deep space transport vessel destined for a paradise planet. Her safe cocoon is about to break open as Paradise 21 looms only one month away, and she must take the aptitude tests to determine her role on the new world and her computer assigned lifemate. As a great-granddaughter of the Commander of the ship, she wants to live up to her family name. But, her forbidden love for her childhood friend, Sirius, distracts her and she fails the tests. The results place her in a menial role in the new colony and pair her with Corvus, “the oaf”.
But when Andromeda steps foot on Paradise 21, her predestined future is the least of her worries. Alien ghosts from a failed colonization warn her of a deadly threat to her colony. And when Sirius’s ship crashes on the far ridge in an attempt to investigate, she journeys to rescue him with Corvus.
Andromeda now must convince the authorities of the imminent danger to protect her new home. What she didn’t expect was a battle of her own feelings for Sirius and Corvus.
Can she save the colony and discover her true love?
