Early Review: Paradise 21 by Aubrie Dionne

Paradise 21


Aries has lived her entire life aboard mankind's last hope, the New Dawn, a spaceship traveling toward a planet where mankind can begin anew- a planet that won't be reached in Aries' lifetime. As one of the last genetically desirable women in the universe,she must marry her designated genetic match and produce the next generation for this centuries long voyage.

But Aries has other plans.

When her desperate escape from the New Dawn strands her on a desert planet, Aries discovers rumors about pirates - humans who have escaped her before its demise - are true. Handsome, genetically imperfect Striker possess the freedom Aries' envies, and the two connect on a level she never thought possible. But pursued by her match from above and hunted by the planet's native inhabitants, Aries quickly learns freedom will come at a hefty price.

The life of the man she loves. (Goodreads)

What would you do if your entire life had been decided for you? Would you run, even if there was a big chance that running meant your death? Is death better than a life of personal prison? These are the decisions Aries has to make in Paradise 21. 

Aries has done everything expected of her all her life. But what nobody knows is that she doesn’t really buy into the program she was raised to believe in. She will now risk anything to escape. I liked Aries character. She was strong, smart, and compassionate. I did have one problem with Aries…How fast she fell for Striker. Yes, Striker is super hot. Yes, they are on a desert planet fighting monstrous creatures, but it just seemed a little fast to me. I did love their chemistry though, it drove me crazy.

Striker was a great character though a bit finicky at times with Aries. I loved that he and his crew were space pirates. Love me some pirates! I enjoyed the sort of Robin Hood feel you got from Striker as you watched him wanting to save his people. Even though pirates are supposed  to be villains. Striker wants to give those who have nothing a better life.

This was a fun, action packed sci-fi read, and overall I enjoyed it.

Happy Reading,
