Jun 03, 2014 rated it it was amazing

If you've been following my blog, you all know that I love The Nogiku Series. It is a gem among the New Adult genré. Not only is it NA, it's also post-apocalyptic. Plus, there is Japanese culture in it! I've been doing a self-study for Korean and Japanese languages, so I get excited whenever I come across books with Asian things in it.

In the previous book, Released, Sanaa, Jiro, and the rest of her family and friends, went on a journey to Yūsei. It is the new planet that the populace on earth wi

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Whoops, it almost 4 am but I put this book down to sleep and couldn't stop thinking about it so ended up turning the light back on, picking this up again and then staying up until the wee hours to finish. Thank goodness it's the weekend and I can sleep in tomorrow!

I finally got the part of the series that I have been waiting for. The transfer to their new home has been made and the colonization starts on their new planet. I thoug

When Sanaa Itami finally finishes her long journey across the stars to reach her new home, nothing turns out as expected. Her old enemies have followed her there and will wake from hibernation soon, and the new planet has turned out to house new enemies as well. Her family and clan will do all they can to keep her bloodline a secret, but the truth will come out. And with it, Sanaa may lose her beloved Jiro, her surrogate father Mark, her friends and family, and a future she had dared to dream.

Reunited, book 3 of the Nogiku series, was by far my favorite. The moment the book starts, Pajonas puts you right in the middle of the action. When I finished reading Released, my mouth dropped open and I yelled out loud I needed to know what happened! It was well worth the wait. Sanaa is a strong female character, and even through the bad things that happen to her in Reunited, she remains strong. Sanaa and Jiro’s romance is amazing to read, and they fit perfectly together. Many surprises await ...more

This review and many more can be found on my blog: Feed Your Fiction Addiction

Reunited is the third book in Pajonas’s unique dystopian Nojiku series, and it is, without a doubt, the best installment so far!

This book is a complete game changer for the series – Sanaa and the others have finally reached Yusei, but it’s nothing like they imagined it to be! Yusei is already inhabited, and the more Sanaa learns about the culture of the planet’s residents, the less she wants to simply integrate with th

4.5 stars.

*I’d like to thank the author for providing me an ARC in exchange for my honest review.*

*As this is book 3 in a series, there will be spoilers for the first two books, but none for this one.*

This series is full of cliffhanger endings, and that trend doesn’t stop with book three. When the author graciously allowed me to read an advanced copy of this book, I immediately jumped in, and then got completely blindsided by the cliffhanger ending, in the best way! I now need book four, as f
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Ever since finishing Released I had been eagerly awaiting the release of Reunited and now it's finally here! As started reading it as soon as I received my copy and it was so great to be back in the Nogiku world again. I love this author's writing style and it just makes me feel at ease.

So many things happen in this book and when the land at Yusei, things aren't what they expected. I loved seeing this new world and discovering right alongside Sa

Reunited is the third book in the Nogiku series, and is not a stand-alone. It must be read in order, but the journey to get to this book is well worth it. I’ve previously reviewed Book 1: Removed (5 stars) and Book 2: Released (4 stars). While book 2 left me a little wanting in terms of story and pacing, book 3 grabbed me from page one and renewed my adoration for the series that was formed by book 1. Although categorized as a New Adult Romance science fiction, I found book 3 to be mature enough ...more

I know I say it too much (if there is ever such a thing when praising a book or series) but l really love Pajonas' Nogiku series, particularly because it's so different than anything else out there in New Adult. It has action, romance, amazing world building and it raises interesting questions that always keep me pondering my own world and it's future.

What's completely fascinating about book #3 is the world building. Even though this is Sanaa's first time moving to a new planet, as readers we've

REUNITED by S.J. Pajonas is her fourth full length novel, and my favorite so far in this series. The third installment of the Nogiku Series brings us to a new world with a slew of new characters. Now that Sanaa has arrived on the planet she is destined to govern, all the planning that got her there falls apart. Jiro and company have to decide on a new strategy that will work best now that all the rules of the game have changed.

REUNITED is another smooth transition from RELEASED (book 2 in the se

So much of what was wonderful about the first two books in the series is still here in this book - the relationships, especially the one between Sanaa and Jiro, but really, all of them, are very well-written, believable, and engaging, and I still think that Sanaa is the most incredible character, and love viewing things through her perspective. I found myself feeling a bit more skeptical about the world-building aspects of this book than I did with the first two, and in particular, the ease with ...more

In book 3 of the Nogiku series, I eagerly continued reading about all the characters that I'd grown to admire, anxious to know what happens next when they finally arrive on the new planet of Yusei... But surprise, surprise! Lots of unexpected twists and turns that had me reading until too late in the night. It was a pleasure to see how much more the characters in this series have grown and developed, and the many pitfalls Sanaa's character had to endure. Once again, brilliant world-building, esp ...more

I received this book as an ARC and truthfully, I put off reading it because I knew I would have to wait awhile before the 4th and last book is released. I didn't want to get into the book and have to wait to see where S.J. takes us. I'm so glad I did! This book is an engaging addition to her Nogiku Series and is my favorite of the series so far. Now I have the fourth book in my hands and can't wait to see how the love between Sanaa and Jiro grow and develop along with the other wonderful charact ...more

Sanaa is found out.

It starts with meeting a family from another small town. The 8 year old son doesn't believe women can fight, doesn't understand who Sanaa is in relationship to the man they worship and definitely let's all know his thoughts.

Minamoto leaves his family and goes to Fujiwara, who he thinks will be a better ruler.

Read and find out what is happening. It will make you think.

The third book in the Nogiku series puts the characters in a whole new environment, but the core of the story is the same, the love story between Sanaa and Jiro. I really enjoyed this third book and reading about the characters' new home and challenges that they faced. When I wasn't reading the book, t found myself thinking about the story - a true sign of a good read! This series leaves you in love yourself, with Sanaa and Jiro, the rich world they live in, and the book itself. ...more

As with book 2, the plot and characters remind me of a YA story, though there are brief references to erotic sex.

Unfortunately, book 3 is very similar to book 2, even though the story has shifted to a new planet(!). Our heroine is still manipulated by friends and foes alike, and people die because of her actions, and then she rescues others.

It's still an interesting ride, and I will read book 4, but Sanaa really needs to grow up.

Book 3 of the series. I had to immediately purchase and read it after the cliff hanger at the end of Book 2 - Revealed. This Book starts up right where Revealed left off. And I'll say it again if you enjoy romance and science fiction, you are going to love this series. Now I am just sad because I tore through the series so fast that I have to wait for the last one. My inner Star Wars nerd is very sad. ;) ...more

My favorite in the series so far! Why aren't you reading these books?!?!

You are immediately dropped into the world that Stephanie has created for Sanaa, Jiro, and others. While the environment is different, the action, love and strength remain. Many adventures in this book!

*this is the third in a series and not meant to be a stand alone book*

Picking up right where Released ended, Reunited takes you back into the world of Sanaa and Jiro as they start their life on Yusei. Colonizing a planet is complicated on its own. Add clan rivalries, political scheming, and another surprise related to Sanaa's heritage, and the situation becomes downright dangerous. I love these characters, and can't wait to see what happens next. MORE PLEASE! ...more

How could you do this to me?... I thought this was it. I loved the way this story took us. A new planet, old foes and new, old allies and new too. So where does this leave us? At the start of a civil war perhaps? We will just have to see.
