Hello lovelies! Today, I am posting a review of HOVER (The Taking #2) by Melissa West!
On Earth, seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander was taught to never peek, but if she hopes to survive life on her new planet, Loge, her eyes must never shut. Because Zeus will do anything to save the Ancients from their dying planet, and he has a plan.
Thousands of humans crossed over to Loge after a poisonous neurotoxin released into Earth's atmosphere, nearly killing them. They sought refuge in hopes of finding a new life, but what they became were slaves, built to wage war against their home planet. That is, unless Ari and Jackson can stop them. But on Loge, nothing is as it seems...and no one can be trusted.
I have been waiting to read this book since I finished GRAVITY. And I was sooooo happy to get an e-ARC of it!!
Ari is now on Loge, and she has to face what happened back on Earth, what's happening on Loge now, and trying to figure out her and Jackson out. All before everything comes crashing down.
Everything went pretty fast, there wasn't really a pause in the action, which I didn't mind at all. And at first, I was like...where's the romance? But it comes just at the end, and there's plenty for the rest of book, I promise. ;)
I won a contest last year sometime, and I got a chance to be in Melissa's book. And I was! Reading about me was amazing, and even though I wasn't in it very much, it was still awesome.
I love Ari, at first she's all tough, and then you see her scared and weak scared, seeing how human she really is. I don't like heroines who act tough all the time, I like them where they can be weak and scared too. And Ari is a perfect example! I thought I could relate to her a lot, besides being with aliens and all that...
Jackson was a mystery to both me and Ari. She couldn't figure him out, and towards the end, we finally really get Jackson, so the mystery was finally solved, and I felt like I could understand Jackson better.
With all the other characters, and the villian, Zeus, it was an awesome cast of characters, and I can't wait to read more about them in COLLIDE!
As I said before, there wasn't a lot of romance up until the end, and it was enough for the entire book. Jackson and Ari are a tough couple, being complete oppsisties, but together, they are amazing! I hope they get married in the near future...
It's written in the present tense, which is now my favorite tense, since I'm writing in it. It used to bother me, but now I love it, and the writing is awesome! I can't wait to read more!
4.5 stars! I'm anxiously waiting for COLLIDE, the ending of HOVER will kill you. I cried.
