Title: The Eslites: The Arrival
Author: C.M. Doporto
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for a beta read and review.
Again, another friggin gorgeous cover from author C.M. Doporto. I'm not the biggest sci-fi fan but I read the short story The Eslites and really enjoyed it so I was delighted to be asked to Beta this one. After reading the novella I was left with so many questions and this instalment gave me everything I had craved. I found this book to be a fast paced and exciting read. I also liked that the novel dealt with quite a controversial/ ethical topic, but I really enjoyed that aspect. OMG! C.M. Was a total jerk with the cliffhanger ending and just when things were getting amazing.
I really loved reading how the girls lived on Nidus or should I say how they tried to stay alive. Miranda really surprised me, I found her to be so rebellious that's she was willing to risk her life to try (and maybe not even succeed) and save the others living on Nidus and the rest of the human race. But most shocking for me was Miranda's dad, her own father, the asshat of asshats. GRHH! And that's all the time I'm gonna waste on him. Not sure if I like Bryce yet. He is also an asshat, but he did somewhat redeemed himself but he does really need to grow a pair.
Overall I was really impressed for this being the beta read through. I can't wait to see where the story goes from here. I would recommend it to sci-fi junkies.
