Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray (April 4, 2017 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
So far the only books I’ve read by Claudia Gray have been her Star Wars novels, but that’s also how I came to discover how amazing she is. I’d love to try one of her YA novels some day, and already I have my eye on this one coming soon in the spring.
“Noemi Vidal is a teen soldier from the planet Genesis, once a colony of Earth that’s now at war for its independence. The humans of Genesis have fought Earth’s robotic “mech” armies for decades with no end in sight.
After a surprise attack, Noemi finds herself stranded in space on an abandoned ship where she meets Abel, the most sophisticated mech prototype ever made. One who should be her enemy. But Abel’s programming forces him to obey Noemi as his commander, which means he has to help her save Genesis–even though her plan to win the war will kill him.
Together they embark on a daring voyage through the galaxy. Before long, Noemi begins to realize Abel may be more than a machine, and, for his part, Abel’s devotion to Noemi is no longer just a matter of programming.”
