8/10 stars. I loved it.
A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet, and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn’s a madman, others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck—now, they live a public life in front of the cameras, and a secret life away from the world’s gaze.
Now, in the center of the universe on the planet of Corinth, all four are about to collide with two new players, who will bring the fight against LaRoux Industries to a head. Gideon Marchant is an eighteen-year-old computer hacker—a whiz kid and an urban warrior. He’ll climb, abseil and worm his way past the best security measures to pull off onsite hacks that others don’t dare touch.
Sofia Quinn has a killer smile, and by the time you’re done noticing it, she’s got you offering up your wallet, your car, and anything else she desires. She holds LaRoux Industries responsible for the mysterious death of her father and is out for revenge at any cost.
When a LaRoux Industries security breach interrupts Gideon and Sofia’s separate attempts to infiltrate their headquarters, they’re forced to work together to escape. Each of them has their own reason for wanting to take down LaRoux Industries, and neither trusts the other. But working together might be the best chance they have to expose the secrets LRI is so desperate to hide.
Maybe if you read the other two books very recently, you might recognize some of the names in it. If not, (like me), you'll just have to remember as you read.
I fell in love with both main characters.
Gideon is brilliant as well as strong and rather witty. It was a lot of fun reading about him, his mission, and finding out more about his past. He is quite the complex character. Not the stereotypical 'hacker,' which I appreciated.
Sofia was also very interesting to read about. She's not as much of a physical fighter as she is a mental one. I loved how easily she could slip in and out of a lie. Just like Gideon, she's very complex and as you read on, you find out more and more about her. Peeling back the layers until you find out what she's truly like, under the facade. She may not be a fighter, but she's surprisingly strong. Able to hold herself together when she's falling apart inside. I appreciated that about her.
Another thing I really enjoyed in the book was reading about when they all came together- Tarver, Lilac, Jubilee, Flynn, Sofia and Gideon. It was interesting to see the ties all of them had with each other.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who's read the first two books in the series- and if you haven't read this series at all, I highly recommend the whole series, it's a very fun read.
