About the Book:

Octavia has only ever had one goal: to follow in the footsteps of her parents and become a prestigious whitecoat, one of the scientists who study the natural wonders of Faloiv. The secrets of the jungle’s exotic plants and animals are protected fiercely in the labs by the Council of N’Terra, so when the rules suddenly change, allowing students inside, Octavia should be overjoyed.

But something isn’t right. The newly elected leader of the Council has some extremist views about the way he believes N’Terra should be run, and he’s influencing others to follow him. When Octavia witnesses one of the Faloii—the indigenous people of Faloiv—attacked in front of her in the dark of night, she knows the Council is hiding something. They are living in separate worlds on a shared planet, and their fragile peace may soon turn into an all-out war.

With the help of Rondo, a quiet boy in class with a skill for hacking, and her inquisitive best friend, Alma, Octavia is set on a collision course to discover the secrets behind the history she’s been taught, the science she’s lived by, and the truth about her family.

Notes and Opinions: If you love space and other planets and a mystery then check this one out! It was a combo of a slow burn but the story was never boring. It kicked off with pulling you into it very quickly.  I found myself falling in love with the characters right off the bat and I couldn't put it down. The world was so alive and the author did a fabulous job giving us information and backstory about how they got there and how this planet worked without it feeling like info dumping.  The romance was very sweet as well and I loved every minute of it blooming between the characters.  The story as a whole was wonderfully paced and I wouldn't change a thing! I can't wait to get a copy of this one when it releases!  

Go Into This One Knowing: Romance,  Action, Mystery, SPACE, and more!
