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.
I haven't read any Claudia Gray books yet (oops) and when I heard that this is a sci-fi read (I rarely read synopsis), I knew I had to get to this one soon! It's giving me Illuminae slash Wall-E feels! Aaaaah, this is going to be an epic one, I can feel it. Plus, some of my fave bloggers are raving about this so I am in good hands! April can't get here fast enough!
