“They’d killed me, but I survived.”

Three years after Rory Riordan foiled her own murder, she still trusts no one—not Dr. Z, the eccentric college professor who has taken her under his wing; not Benji, the endearing, attractive classmate who insists on following her around; and certainly not Cy, the beautifully dark and mysterious boy who sits in the first row in Dr. Z’s Astrobiology class and asks far too many questions.

When Rory witnesses Cy being abducted by soldiers in the middle of the night, she finds herself immersed in a world that holds more secrets than she could imagine, even darker secrets than her own.

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire, experience the perfect combination of her bestselling books Providence and Beautiful Disaster. This New Adult Sci-Fi Romance is an action-packed, whiplash-inducing roller-coaster ride. Page after page, this unpredictable, dark, and sexy nail-biter will keep readers guessing until the very end!

I was so excited about a new Jamie McGuire and I loved the way the blurb read! It really sounded intriguing regardless of the fact that I rarely read sci-fi.

“It doesn’t make you weak to forgive someone, you know” he said. “No, but it gives people another chance to hurt you.”

Unfortunately Apolonia just wasn’t our thing. A lot of people liked it and we are HUGE Jamie McGuire fans, so don’t rule it out based on just our review.

The story was basically about a young girl who need to learn to trust and forgive so she could move forward in life. We can all relate to that.

It was entertaining enough and held my attention until the end. It was written with the same passion and flare that all Jamie McGuire books hold. The characters are well-developed and interesting. The setting is different from what I am used to reading and I liked the change. All in all it was fine, just not for me. I still love Jamie and will read anything she writes.

2 stars and pair it with an Illuminati in a BIG glass!
