“Cyborgs don’t get to control their own lives. Their own destinies.” I did not choose to become this way. This corrupted, innocent body. Who in their right mind would willingly choose this life? But those whose machine parts become too damaged to continue to operate under normal circumstances are recycled… their human half meticulously removed and disposed of… and the machine part to be reattached to a new human… Was I ever a part of someone else? At the end of the interstellar war, Max Ryan, an unwilling cyborg living on the Rock, a notorious prison planet, is rescued and sent to live on the transport ship Eden as it travels home to Old Earth. Max never thought she'd be doing anything else other than baking the ship's bread for the next five years. But when she uncovers a conspiracy bigger than the war that enslaved her in the first place, she is in for the fight of not only her life, but those around her she has grown to love. A dystopian novel exploring the themes of love, class, race, gender, and power.

I love the idea of science being so advanced it's like a form of magic, and I'm very excited to see where space, or...
After some deliberation, I decided to rate it 3.5 stars. I have problems with it, but I disagree far more with Internet bullying.Okay, before I say anything, I think it is worth noting that I wasn't sure whether I ought to review or not. With all the drama going on around here lately, it's easy to l...
It seems like I’m on this streak of awesome Dystopian books, and this book is no exception. I loved it! The writing was simple, and I mean that in the most complimentary ways! I wasn’t bombarded with descriptions overflowing with analogies and metaphors. The writing was to the point, and didn’t need...
When I was a young girl in middle school I had a friend who loved to write. I'd always see her hunched over her many composition notebooks, fervently scribbling away. One day I asked her what she was writing and with a bemused look she simply replied, "Stories." This, of course, piqued my curiosity ...
