Blog Tour: Distortion by Victor Dixen Book Review

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *


Distortion (Phobos, #2)Title: Distortion
Author: Victor Dixen
Publisher: Hot Key Books
Source: Readers First/ Hot Key Books
Rating: 4.5/5 stars


Book Summary:

After a speed-dating show that is literally out of this world, twelve young astronauts are set to become the first humans to colonise Mars. They are also the victims of the cruellest of plots.

LĂ©onor thought she was a pioneer on an extraordinary mission. She thought she had left all regrets behind her on Earth. But when memories are this painful, there can be no forgetting . . .

Book Review:

I really enjoyed Ascension when I first read it. It was by far one of my favourite books of the year and I was eagerly awaiting the sequel, Distortion, to released. Distortion was, therefore, a book that I loved from start to finish and devoured in a couple of hours. It was that good.

I think that although I love this series so much, the book can take a while to get into. This is because of the different POVs that the book takes as it can be a very jarring experience at first but this is always something that I get into a love as it is a very interesting way to tell a story. I also think that it works so well to tell a novel that has so many characters, in different places and planets. 

I also really loved the characters in this book especially those in the twelve that are on Mars. I think it would be so easy to not develop the characters in the book but Victor did it so well. I think that all of them all have a quality that you can tie to them and I do not think that you ever mix up the characters at all and I really did like them. 

I think that although the last one focused a lot on romance which I guess it had to be with the aim of the book and I loved this when I read it and still would if I read it now, I liked the turn that this book went. I do like hard sci-fi things and I definitely wanted to see and know all of the science things that happened due to the plot twist that happened at the end of Ascension. 

There is romance in this book but it definitely took a back seat in this one but the romance that does take part I really loved. This is also what is involved in the cliffhanger at the end which really shook me up. 

Finally, I think that Victor Dixen just knows how to write a good cliffhanger. Like the ending of this book is just so great that I had to read it twice to make sure that I knew what I was reading. I just need to find out what happens next! 

The Verdict:

Distortion is a sequel that lives up to the hype and love that I had with Ascension. Now I have to wait until April to read Book 3.

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…

(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…

I hadn't heard of the Curse of Time when I received an email to be part of the blog tour but being a person who loves to read YA fantasy I knew I had to give it a read. I really enjoyed The Curse of Time and it is a real…
