In 2160, a teenager becomes the bait to capture her missing revolutionary parents she thinks are long dead.
Grey Alexander has one goal—to keep herself and her younger sister Orinda alive. Not an easy feat living unconnected in the North American Wildlife Preserve, where they survive by smuggling contraband into the Mazdaar government's city zones. If the invisible electric border fence doesn't kill them, a human-like patrol drone could.
When her worst fear comes true, Grey questions everything she thought she knew about life, her missing parents, and God. Could another planet, whose sky swirls with orange vapors and where extinct-on-Earth creatures roam free, hold the key to reuniting her family?
About the Author:
My Rating: 3 out of 5
This book peaked my interest. I wanted to know about Grey and her life on earth and journey to Jupiter. The storyline itself did not disappoint, and I finished it in a relatively short amount of time.
However, this book did not wow me. The technology was believable, but I have read/seen it better. Stronger character voices would have made a huge difference for me. Because of personal experience, I found it difficult to relate to the emotions Grey went through with her family.
Darlington’s strength in description helped keep a good balance with the action and sci-fi aspects. I saw Jupiter in a way I’d never seen it before.
In the end, this was an okay book that I’m glad I read.
