It was simply an astoundingly melancholic and an unlikely emotional experience for me to read Tundra 37. So, to say that Tundra 37 is an unpredictable read would be an understatement. I didn't expect the book to tug at my heartstrings. The book really made me appreciate the life on Earth more than anything else. All the loss and the madness that then ensues longing and deprivation is enough to make anyone lose their minds.

The story of Tundra 37 is not limited to the protagonists alone. The twin

Loved it! I loved the vivid imagery, I loved the various stories of the different characters lives, I loved the Seer’s memories of Old Earth, I enjoyed the dreams of alternate times and places that the lifers on board the Expedition experienced, and I liked the fact that I didn’t get lost in scientific technical jargon that can sometimes weigh down sci fi books. Over all Tundra 37 is a highly enjoyable book filled with memories of a time past, a spacecraft full of people struggling to survive on ...more

A spectacular science fiction romance novel, Aubrie Dionne’s TUNDRA 37 excites and sizzles despite the chill of deep space and an ice-covered planet.

Gemme’s perfectly ordered world is about to be shattered. As a matchmaker aboard the Expedition, she has life all figured out, but then she’s paired with the handsome Lieutenant Miles Brentwood. Every lady wants him, especially her enemy Luna Legacy. In a haste decision, she deletes her own pairing and finds her world breaking apart in a shower of c

Old Earth is dying. It’s only a matter of time before the planet runs out of resources. Realizing the inevitable, Thadious Legacy pulls a ship and crew together so humankind might have a chance of surviving. The Expedition took off from Old Earth hundreds of years ago. In addition to thousands of genetically-picked people, Mr. Legacy tapped twin sisters who are Seers to run the ship. After sustaining significant damage from a meteor shower, the Expedition crash-lands on Tundra 37, a frozen plane ...more

Wow! This book was a rush. It took a slightly different path than Paradise 21. The ship, Expedition, is being run by twins who have telepathic powers. They have been controlling the ship since it's take off from Old Earth. We actually get to follow the story of the twins, through the eyes of Mestasis. I loved reading about what Old Earth was like before it was abandoned.

I loved reading about Gemme and Miles. She starts out as this shy girl but through the book she shows that she has so much str

I started reading this book 2 days ago and was hooked right away... I didn't want to put it down. It's a sci-fi with a romance ... but it's much more than that. The author weaves the stories of many of the Lifers and others into the book.

The primary story line is the relationship between Gemme, the Expedition's matchmaker, and Miles, a lieutenant. Gemme was not looking for a match for herself when the matching computer paired her with Miles, a highly-sought-after handsome bachelor on the ship.

The storyline:
I loved that Tundra 37 wasn’t based on the romance, I love that the actual plotline was based on the survival of the lifers aboard The Expedition. It made this book very addicting to read. I really enjoyed it.

Gemme is the matchmaker aboard The Expedition. She accepts or denies the matches that the computer pairs life mates, she makes sure they are far apart in the family tree and that their genetics would be good together. Another part of her job is to

My Take: Let's go in order here. At first, the novel was a bit confusing. You get thrown right into the story and sufficed to say, I had no clue what was happening. That didn't last too long though. I was glad to know what was happening. One thing that I loved about this book was that you get right into the action. You don't have to sit around and wait for something to happen. It doesn't get boring because things keep happening, granted, some things come out of left field but it's easy to keep u ...more

Tundra 37, by Aubrie Dionne, is the second in her New Dawnscience-fiction series. Intriguingly, this is the sort of series that really doesn’t need to be read in order, with connected histories but entirely different futures. Colonists in the previous novel searched for Paradise 21, but colonists on Expedition have a whole new destiny.

When meteors hit, the colony ship seems doomed, leaking air and rocked by explosions while its stores of power run low. Meanwhile citizens race down broken corrido

Judging by the cover and reviews, I thought I was in for a steamy Sci-fi Romance ride. Well, that's not exactly true. This book is more like a Sci-fi thriller/adventure with romantic elements. I was very surprised on how well constructed and interesting this story turned out to be. No truly steamy parts, but definitely a very good read nonetheless.

Gemme Reiner’s world is made up mostly of numbers. It’s her job to analyze data aboard the Expedition, specifically data related to human pairings. And she’s fine with that. They don’t call her the Matchmaker without reason. Her matches have nothing to do with love, and everything to do with the survival of the species.

Lieutenant Miles Brentwood is charged with ensuring things run smoothly on the Expedition, and overseeing the health and safety of its human inhabitants. To him, humans aren’t jus

Tundra 37 is a wonderful addition to the New Dawn series continuing to tell the story about a ship full of specially chosen individuals making their way to a new world after the Earth dies out. This particular expedition is full of intriguing characters, fast-paced action, scientific mysteries, and a bit of romance. With flashbacks from the past to the present and told from differing viewpoints the reader becomes quickly enmeshed in the story and as the struggle for life plays out your heartbeat ...more

In this installment, we get a lot more intrigue and romance though it is not lacking for adventure either. This second book in the series though third chronologically tells the story of a different colony ship that finds itself battered in a meteor shower and is forced to abandon its goal and settle for the only habitable planet nearby that happens to be going through an Ice age.

The First Line: "I'm losing her. Abysme guides the vessel in silence, her blind eyes rolling as she senses our course, two hundred years away from Paradise 18."

This is one of the greatest science fiction novels I have read in a long long time. I actually don't read many space novels and this book made me think differently about my attitude toward them. Tundra 37 was really good. Great characters you fall in love with, a plot that keeps you engaged, and great detail and a whole new world. Gemme a

With Book 1 of the New Dawn series, we were introduced to a main character running away from a computer-generated life-mate match because she didn't like the guy. With this book, Aubrie Dionne tackles a different angle, with a main character who does like the guy she's paired up with. It is refreshing to see an author take on these different perspectives rather than writing book 2 as a recycled version of book 1.

I loved the first book in this series, Paradise 21, and was thrilled to discover that this book was even better. There was so much depth to the storyline, it kept me turning pages all day. I didn't know how the author would tie it all together in the end, but I had faith that she would. Brilliant story.

Today's review is on Tundra 37 by Aubrie Dionne

Deciding to branch out of my comfort zone a bit I agreed to read Tundra 37. What I found was science fiction romance that could melt even the coldest of hearts. Fluctuating between chapters of the past and the present day, the reader can't help but to fall in love with the characters.

We have all had thoughts of the world ending as we know it. In Tundra 37 it actually does. There is hope however. Scientific advancements have allowed for space travel

Tundra 37 by Aubire Dionne is a futuristic story that involves a spaceship taking colonists to a new planet when the Earth is no longer habitable. It is the second book in the ‘A New Dawn’ series. As the story starts, this ship- the Expedition, runs into a comet shower and is so damaged that the idea of traveling all the way to Paradise 18 (the original destination for the mission) is no longer even possible. Seeing no other way of keeping the colonists alive, the two pilots (known as the Seers ...more

Tundra 37 is the second book in the New Dawn series by Aubrie Dionne. It is a Sci-Fi romance that leans more heavily towards the Sci-Fi then the romance. This is a good book but I found the romance lacking. It felt underdeveloped. The two main characters, Gemme and Miles aren’t given much time together to form feelings of love, yet after very little time together, almost all of which was work related, they are professing their love to each other. I believe the author intended this to be due to t ...more

I got this book for an honest review, and I'm really starting to hate myself for accepting a lot of the requests I get out there and recently I just got literally an onslaught of review and tour stop requests.

Take one sentient spaceship traveling the stars, add a fated couple, a crash landing on a forbidding planet, stir in sabotage and a race to save the human colony, and what do you get? Tundra 37, a sci-fi thriller of a romance that has a lot of promise but stumbles over itself in the execution.

The story is told mostly from the point of view of Gemme, a genetic analyst and matchmaker. She is one of many humans aboard a ship headed for a hospitable planet after the earth has been rendered uninhabit
