Waiting on Wednesday: DEFY THE STARS by Claudia Gray

Jill at Breaking the Spine started Waiting on Wednesday (WoW) as a way for bloggers and book lovers to share the books they're anticipating to read the most. Come back each Wednesday for posts about "the" books that we cannot wait to get our hands on.

Nancy & Christy's WoW

It's not often that we share a WoW but let's be real...We'd be crazy if we weren't DYING to get our hands on this one. 

Defy the Stars 
Untitled, Book # 1
by Claudia Gray 
Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Pages: 512

In her most epic and ambitious work to date, bestselling author Claudia Gray takes readers on an interstellar journey exploring what it means to be human.

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.                   


  1. Ooh nice! I'm curious for this one but must finish her Firebird trilogy before I move onto a new series of hers! Trying to finish the books I have yet I still find I add more and more before I get caught up! LOL!

  2. Ooo, I did not know that this book's cover was revealed! I'm interested in it despite not knowing much about it. I like Gray's books for the most part. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get a chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week, Nancy. :)

  3. Y'all really like sci-fi! Gah! :P I'm not sure that I will look into this one, but if y'all rec it enough to me, I probably will. I'm a pushover like that. :)

    1. Well, I do...Nancy is dipping her toes it. This one is light on the sci-fi, heavy on the romance!
