I am still not sure how I feel about this one. On one hand I did want to know what would happen cos there were so many questions. But on the other hand, would I read more? I am not sure. The bad thing is there will be more so even though this one gave me a pretty good conclusion, there are still those questions.




Mi'a and her mother are some kind of aliens. Replicas going back 3000 years. Daughter being born always looking like the mother. Always on the run from the hunter. Somewhere way back they lost their knowledge and now they do not know where they come from and why they run. They only know they must reach the stars, avoid the hunter, and there can only be two....




Omg, why are they on earth? Why can there only be two? Why do they all look alike? S0 many questions, zero answers. Instead we get Mia and Sara working behind the scenes trying to make the Germans, the US, the Soviets create some rockets




So many why's, I do want questions, so maybe I will read more if I remember. But def from the library again.




Yes, pageturner, but, hard to like people in it






Mia is not sure what she is, but she isn't human. Smarter, stronger than her peers, all she knows are the rules: there can never be three for too long; always run, never fight.




When she finds herself in Germany, 1945, she must turn the Nazi's most trusted scientist with an offer: abandon the crumbling Nazi party, escape Germany with your life, come to work for the Americans building rockets.




But someone is watching her work. An enemy who's smarter, stronger, decidedly not human and prepared to do anything to retrieve something ancient that was long lost.




If only she had any idea what it was . . .

  1. So wait... you never find out the answers to the questions? Is the second book coming soon? I would be all ragey.

  3. I remember thinking there was way too much happening in this one. And the space race is fascinating enough to begin with, no need for all of this weirdness.

  4. An interesting mix of things to like and engage and aspects to put you off.

  5. It makes me curious b/c I like to know the answers, but if it wasn't grabbing you I can see why you'd be ambivalent about picking up the next book.
