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 onboard 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.
"This thrilling space odyssey will keep you turning pages late into the night." (C. J. Daugherty, author of Night School)

Gripping YA scifi
ASCENSION appealed to my YA Sci-fi heart immediately on reading the blurb but I can only tell you that reading it was so much more. It blew me away, from the first jaw drop to the last page. This is a fast paced read, with suspense but also with some lulls and time to gather your breath. Basically, the pacing is well thought out.
This was a no-return to Earth, colonisation of Mars, dating game but there was not one thing that was light about this ‘game’. The six young women and six young men were a mixture of sweet, banal and screwed-up. The protagonist, Leonor was a fabulous character and so very complex. She drew me in with her seemingly bad attitude, scars, flaws and integrity. Out of the six, she favoured two and it was a twisty tale.
There were some super baddies in this book and Serena McBee was a special kind of nasty with saccharine words. Behind the dating game was a whole sub plot that was really the most important plot and boy, did it keep me on the edge of my seat. As the book sprinted to the end I was desperate to get to....no answers. I knew this would be the way but I am going to dive into Distortion shortly to just continue this angst-ridden ride.
I’m hoping for justice AND hope.
On another note, this book was written in French but the translation is flawless, I wouldn’t have known because the writing flows beautifully. The narration was excellent and conveyed the drama and emotions so well.
