Paradise 21 by Aubrie Dionne Review


Paradise 21 by Aubrie Dionne
★★★★☆

Earth had been unlivable for some time, and Aries had grown up on a spaceship called the New Dawn. To keep their race populated, people were matched together to wed and have children. Aries did not like the life partner chosen for her or the caged-in space ship. Aries decided to take her life into her own hands.  She escaped onto a desert planet that could sustain life and that she had believed to be uninhabited by humans... until Striker had found her.

Striker was a pirate who was marooned on the planet by his crew members and Aries was the first human he had seen in years.  They worked together to repair an old alien ship to escape the desert planet and  find another planet more like earth in hopes to leave before the New Dawn came back for Aries.


This book was a different read for me and was more on the sci-fi side. It took me a while to get into it since it was a different world, but I ended up really enjoying it. It was a major, fast-paced, action-packed adventure. I read someone’s comment stating that it read like a movie and I agree. This could be made into a great movie with all of the action in it. There wasn’t room for dull moments.

I liked that this book had multiple point of views, some of them I probably could have done without, but that is most likely because I liked the other characters better and just wanted to be focused on them -  especially Striker, because he was awesome.

The author created a wonderful adventure and I loved how there was always something going on. She knew how to keep me interested. It was a fun, well-written book. I look forward to continuing this series when I have more time.

I received this book from the author for review.
