Read Off Planet Aunare Chronicles #1

Ial abilities has become a full time job on its ownEvery minute Maité stays on Earth is one minute closer to getting caught The stress is almost than she can bear and when a fancy Space Tech officer gets handsy with her at the diner she reacts without thinking Breaking the officer’s nose wasn’t her smartest move Now she’s faced with three years forced labor on the volcano planet Abbadon With the job she’s slotted for it may as well have been a death sentence It doesn’t take Maité long before she realizes th Set in a future where giant corporation SpaceTech pretty much controls all of the human colonies across the universe this is the story of Mait a half human half aunare young woman who is just trying to live her life in peace SpaceTech have been trying to start a war with the aunare race for years starting 10 years ago with the massacre of all aunare people living on planets they controlled now they ll stop at nothing to destroy an entire species just to keep their control over humanityMait and her mother have been hiding on earth for 10 years hoping that her father who is a powerful general in the aunare army will find them and help them get to safety If Mait is discovered by SpaceTech then it will be a death sentence but it s getting harder and harder to live under the radar She is so close to freedom when she makes a dreadful mistake one that could cost her everything After her arrest she is sentenced to a work detail on a dangerous volcanic planet every day she comes a little closer to death and if her father s representatives don t get to her in time to save her then war will be inevitableI thought Off Planet was a brilliant start to this new series I ve not read anything by Aileen Erin before but after enjoying this so much I think I definitely need to check out some of her backlist I really liked Mait s character her aunare blood makes her stronger and faster than most but that s almost of a curse than a blessing as she s constantly having to try to hide her abilities so that people don t figure out who or what she really is Her life has been tough but she has a strong bond with her mother and some close friends who are always there for her and even though she s constantly in danger she always tries to help others tooThis is only the first book in the series but we ve already met some really interesting characters both human and alien that I want to spend time with Roan is like a best friend and brother rolled into one Declan was sent to save her but to be honest hasn t been all that great at doing the job she made some interesting allies on Abaddon but I think the person I m most curious about is Lorne the aunare who will stop at nothing to rescue her even if that does mean starting a war that could end up killing billions One thing I m really hoping is that we re not going to see the formation of a dreaded love triangle though there were hints that it might end up going in that direction but I really hope the author surprises me and doesn t take the easy drama routeThe world that the author has created is an interesting one I was fascinated and horrified by the conditions on the volcanic planet so appropriately called Abaddon and I m really looking forward to finding out about the aunare home world too I m a bit curious about why this is being marketed as YA Mait is 20 and her friends are all her age or a fair bit older and although the story is appropriate for teens there s no sex I didn t notice much in the way of swearing and even when Mait is being tortured it doesn t go into super graphic detail I would still class this as an adult sci fi because of the age of the characters and the themes it covers Mait doesn t think or act like a teenage narrator so the YA label is misleading in my opinion That really is a minor issue as I think the story will be enjoyed by both teens and adults but I do think it s important to clarify these things correctly I ve already added the next book Off Balance to my wish list but it s going to feel like a long wait until it s release next year

Off Planet Aunare Chronicles #1

Ere’s to the mining on Abbadon than Space Tech has let on As she makes unlikely allies Maité uncovers Space Tech’s plot to nuke the Aunare homeworld The firepower stored in Abbadon’s warehouses is than enough to do the job ten times over As the clock ticks Maité knows that if she can’t find a way to stop Space Tech there will be an interstellar war big enough to end all life in the universe There’s only one uestion Can she stop the total annihilation of humanity without getting herself killed in the process Kind of space opera kind of not Off Planet intrigues me because it s kind of about interstellar war or at least the tricksy politics that can lead to an interstellar war yet its main characters aren t with a few exceptions soldiers or politicians The protagonist is literally just trying to live her life mind her own business but others can t have that Aileen Erin crafts some fairly interesting and intense situations and brings a fair amount of creativity to the worlds she shows us here Thanks to NetGalley and INscribe Digital for the eARCMait Martinez is half human half Aunare This is dangerous while she still lives on Earth which is essentially ruled by a single corporation SpaceTech Back when Mait was a kid SpaceTech massacred Aunare who lived on its planets and halfers are not welcome So she hides who she is biding her time until she can get herself and her mother off this planet But when people from her past show up looking for her because she happens to be the daughter of the second most powerful Aunare Mait s fragile little life falls apart Exiled to Abaddon SpaceTech s gruelling mining labour camp Mait barely survives while she and her allies try to figure out if there is any way she can escape that place that doesn t mean interstellar warOff Planet takes a little to get going Even though Erin sets up the main conflict fairly early the first act still feels somewhat long to me Honestly though This is a rare instance where I m comfortable saying you should hang in there the climax is worth it at least in my opinion I was tearing up while Mait screamed Do it Jump and was having flashbacks to Battlestar Galactica and Starbuck screaming WE RE GOING THE WRONG WAY Chills down my spine the moment was just so intense So well done there Erin you create a sense of urgency and tension as we wonder who if anyone will survive the final battle While the book kind of ends on a cliffhanger it resolves enough loose ends to leave me satisfiedI m rather disappointed with the antagonists We don t actually meet too many of them We briefly encounter Jason Murtagh in the most uncomfortable way of course Beyond that all we really know about them comes from voices and proxies and what Mait s friends tell us about them They are the bad guys They hate aliensAunare and just want to make war and money It s a fairly one dimensional motivation and while I find the idea of an interstellar corporate feudal hierarchy as compelling and believable as the next person living in the 21st century would I need my villains to be a bit fleshed out hereThe same could be said for Mait s allies to be honest There aren t that many shades of grey here we get a few characters like Matthew and Carl who seem fairly neutral But it seems like most of the people we encounter are either in Murtagh s pocket or totally on Mait s side and deduce fairly uickly her terribly kept secret Don t get me wrong I m not complaining that she has so many people who want to help her I just wish we could see characters who are grappling with the tension between helping her and being punished or characters who start off well disposed to her but then betray her for some reasonPeople are complex is what I m saying For the most part though the characters of Off Planet are not Mait herself is probably a notable exception thankfully I like how Erin manages to endow Mait with sufficient agency despite her role as a pawn in this interstellar chess game Mait displays an incredible amount of dignity and strength though I m annoyed by how often Declan and Lorne tell her this and Declan sharing those videos without her consent crosses a line Most importantly I like that she is always looking for a solution instead of listening to those who are telling her to wait around until Declan or someone else can extract her That s my kind of protagonistOff Planet had some highs and lows for me I d rather a book that s up and down in uality however than something that is just aggressively mediocre and I can safely say that Off Planet isn t that Will I read the next book Definitely maybe
