Jazz Bashara is a criminal.

Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you're not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you've got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.

Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she's stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

Maria’s Review


➦Ever wonder how cool it would be to live on the moon? Not, like, alone or anything. If humans had an actual city there. (useless if you ask me, stupid rock! lol)

➦Listen, I LOVE LOVE LOVE space and planets and all that stuff. But I would NEVER. EVER. EVER. live on the moon. Because, according to Andy Weir their internet is crap. 

➦This book, though. It was shorter than I thought it would be. But somehow, a perfect length. Those of you who love space and science (I actually learned a couple of interesting things I’ve never even thought of before) will probably love this book. It makes scientific stuff sound fun. 

➦The way this book is written is captivating – it’s funny and full of non-stop action. Told from a POV of the heroine, with a little extra something, which, I thought, was absolutely brilliant. For the fans of sci-fi – a must! I loved The Martian and, to be completely honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this book. Boy, was I wrong. Highly entertaining and a nice change of pace from the non-stop romance action happening on my book shelves. Huge seal of approval from me. 🙂
