Summary (from Goodreads):

The third book in a heartstopping, high-octane new space series.

The Genesis Programme reality TV show has brought twelve young astronauts to Mars, to face unprecedented hostility. An even greater danger is now threatening Earth, but the viewers are too glued to their screens and the rescue mission to see what is really happening.

Leonor is ready to risk everything to bring out the truth and warn the world. She can never admit defeat – but can she fight her last fight alone?

Why I can’t wait to read this:

  • I LOVED the first two books in this series – Ascension and Distortion. This series is marketed as ‘Love Island in Space’ which completely does it a disservice because it is so much more than that.
  • The stakes seem to get higher with each book so I cannot wait to see what is going to happen in Book 3. As far as I know, this is 3 of 5 so there’s still lots of story to go though…
  • Book 2, Distortion, ended on a total cliffhanger, with quite a big character reveal/twist. I need to find out what is going to happen with that.
  • Time is ticking onwards in this book. In the second book, I felt a bit frustrated with the characters as some of them seem to have forgotten that they have a time limit – hopefully there will be more of the science side of things that I enjoyed so much and the characters experimenting to find a solution to their problems.
  • More books in translation are always a good thing. One of my main reasons for learning languages was to access all the books that are never translated – this may just be a drop in the ocean, but it’s a step in the right direction! Let’s have more books in translation!
  • Yet again, isn’t the cover gorgeous? I love the way this whole series has been translated, packaged and marketed!
