Off Planet: Book Review
Published March 19th 2019
5 out of 5 stars
SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
In an all-too-plausible future where corporate conglomerates have left the world’s governments in shambles, anyone with means has left the polluted Earth for the promise of a better life on a SpaceTech owned colony among the stars.
Maité Martinez is the daughter of an Earther Latina and a powerful Aunare man, an alien race that SpaceTech sees as a threat to their dominion. When tensions turn violent, Maité finds herself trapped on Earth and forced into hiding.
For over ten years, Maité has stayed hidden, but every minute Maité stays on Earth is one closer to getting caught.
She’s lived on the streets. Gone hungry. And found a way to fight through it all. But one night, while waitressing in a greasy diner, a customer gets handsy with her. She reacts without thinking.
Covered in blood, Maité runs, but it’s not long before SpaceTech finds her…
Arrested and forced into dangerous work detail on a volcano planet, Maité waits for SpaceTech to make their move against the Aunare. She knows that if she can’t somehow find a way to stop them, there will be an interstellar war big enough to end all life in the universe.
There’s only one question: Can Maité prevent the total annihilation of humanity without getting herself killed in the process?

MY REVIEW OF Off Planet:
I was sent an e-ARC of this book through the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review! Receiving this book has in no way affected my review. This review is my own opinion.
Wow! This book was an epic read and I already know it is going to make my list of 2019 Favorites.
Young Adult – Science Fiction – Fantasy
In my opinion, this book is a slow burn, it takes awhile to build but it is totally worth the ride. Once the story builds up, the action doesn’t stop and I literally couldn’t put this book down.
I absolutely loved the main character. She is strong and fierce and reminds me of Sarah J. Maas’s heroines (in all the good ways!). Maité’s (the main character) goes through so much through the course of the book, and you can’t help but root for her as she suffers.
I’m a di Aetes. I won’t quit. Not ever.
The writing style, the characters, and the plot were all excellently written. There is not much more that I can say about how much I really enjoyed reading this book, other than I absolutely cannot wait until the next book in the series Off Balance is released. The publication date for Off Balance is currently set for February 11, 2020.
If you are looking for a fast-paced read, that will totally blown your mind, look no further. Seriously, if you need another 5-star read to add to your roster, then this is it!
Thanks so much for stopping by & reading this book review!
Have an amazing day!
xoxo & Happy Reading
