Just like Zenith it was meh. Just fine. Nothing special. Most of the characters were obvious copies of characters found in other popular YA books, the most obvious being Andy = Celeana from Throne of Glass (I haven't even read the series and it was glaringly obvious), or ALFIE = AIDAN from Illuminae (I mean like seriously only they sound pretty much the same and the acronyms are very similar).

This review contains spoilers. I wanted to give a detailed review of this book since there is not a lot out there for those wondering if they should continue with the last book.
My answer is no and here is why.
Where to begin? Nexus was written a lot better than Zenith and the words flowed better, but that doesn't mean much when to me Zenith was such a low bar to begin with. Now let's get into the nity gritty stuff.

We had received some background on Lira, Andi's 2nd, in Zenith as they

Hard to review because I definitely don't think this series warrants the amount of negative reviews I saw around the release of the first book. The writing is by no means awful, but it could use a little finesse. Adjectives are used repeatedly, and some POVs seem completely unnecessary, like something that helped with drafting but overall should have been left on the cutting room floor.

And while I can think of no better ending for the series, I personally didn't love the path it took to get ther

Writing this before Sasha’s friends flood the page with b.s five star reviews! I read this book hoping the writing had improved. I was wrong. The characters have remained cringey, the diction is still equivalent to that of fan fiction, and it’s clear that there wasn’t much of a thorough editing/reviewing process from the publisher. It’s also disheartening that the authors refuse to look at constructive criticism. I think Sasha and Lindsey could grow and improve as writers, but as long as they co ...more

I really wish I hadn't given this series a second chance. I knew going into this book deep down that I might not like it, but despite what everyone says, Zenith had potential to be great, and Nexus could have grown into something great.
Instead, Nexus brought absolutely no plot until about 200 pages in, flat characters (who didn't develop), and a meh villain. I love sci fi, but this one just made me bitter.

I received a free copy of this book through netgalley. All opinions are my own.

I have a lot of thoughts about this book. As usual I rate based on writing, characters, story line and my overall enjoyment.
So let's dive in. I thought writing was much stronger and better in Nexus compared to Zenith. Dialogue flowed more naturally and there weren't any weird similes that didn't make any sense. Both authors writing styles blend well together and it was easy to read and understand.

You know it’s not a good sign when you have to start your review with a disclaimer. Right off the bat I know this review is going to be a mess – there’s a lot to unpack. So here’s the disclaimer; I don’t know how coherent this one’s going to be.

Let’s get into it.

Nexus – I knew this book was never going to be mind-blowing but I still expected an improvement from Zenith. I wanted more of Zenith’s space opera action but with better world-building and a block buster knock-me-off-my-socks ending to c

2.5/5 stars

oh i am kind of disappointed. don't get me wrong, the core plot was super interesting but really what kept me reading.

the writing is an improvement from Zenith for sure but sentences that didn't need to be there that made the prose very awkward and juvenile. most of the dialogue was fine but here and there some cringe things.

while the overarching plot was good, i felt like the story was told on a very surface level. i can tell world-building was attempted but the execution of that ju

Wow, I am amazed at how action-packed and engrossing this duology has been! I love Androma so much! This book and Zenith have taken me on such an adventure that it has become one of my top sci-fi books ever! Nothing is better than a high stakes, badass, and wicked story. I hope that this series receives more love because it truly deserves it!

This book was amazing. It beat all my expectations.

I loved Zenith when it first came out and gave it 5 stars. Looking back Zenith I would probably now only give 3.5-3.75 stars. This book definitely tops that and has an automatic 5 star rating from me.

This book was action packed with very little romance (The bit of romance was a back burner plot and was perfectly placed in the novel). I loved the romance in here because it wasn't the main focus.

The characters in here were so well developed that

I just can’t do it. I slogged through the first half of this book desperately hoping for a reprieve from the repetitive and painfully deliberate prose but there isn’t one. This book has almost all of the same issues as its predecessor, with uncomfortably familiar themes from popular YA series and poorly explained, descriptive world building. With that said, the character development was much better, but the gaping plot holes and lack of explanation of really important components has plagued me f ...more

Okay, guys, I really did want to like this one. I really enjoyed Zenith, but Nexus just didn’t do it for me. I don’t know what it was, but there was just something about it that it made it really difficult for me to get into.

One thing that really kind of made it difficult was the fact that Nexus didn’t seem as well planned out as Zenith. Yes, I am aware that Zenith wasn’t prefect, but there was at least a little bit o

My Review: OMG I am so happy that I got the chance to read this book. I fell in love with Zenith and you can see how much stronger these two are writing together in Nexus. The one issue I had with book one was that in parts it was confusing. And it seems that in this one the authors hashed things out a little better and I didn't feel so overwhelmed with the story. It was wonderful and I still need more!! Which made all of the POVs so much better. The story flowed so much better than book one.

Disclaimer/Note: I want to thank Harlequin Teen, Netgalley, and Lia Ferrone for getting me an ARC. I was trying to get this book so badly I ended up with two copies, actually, and I feel so insanely, doubly blessed for that. Y'all are collectively the best.

That aside. Sit down, let's have a chat for a minute about this one. The first thing you need to know is this is the second half of the Androma Saga. The first half is a book called ZENITH (and, tangent, there's absolutely no way you jump in w

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.

A galaxy of people forced into blind servitude and a family torn apart lead to a mission not only for survival, but to stop a threat more powerful than anyone could have possibly imagined in the final chapter of authors Lindsay Cummings and Sasha Alsberg’s duology “Nexus (The Androma Saga #2)”. Here is the synopsis.

Frankly, the best thing about this book were the acknowledgements. The ending.
I have so many problems with this- I don't even know where to start.
This book got two stars solely because I was able to get through the entire thing, despite the amount of skimming I did.

I'm going to start with the one thing I liked about this book, and just flow from there.
The pacing- I really enjoyed the pacing in this. It was a light, fast-paced novel, which I can appreciate. It didn't take too long to read, wh

To begin with, it's important to note that I haven't read the first book in this duology, Zenith. I received Nexus to review from the Fantastic Flying Book Club. Despite this, however, information from the first story was woven subtly but completely enough into Nexus that I felt I had a good understanding of what happened without feeling like I'd been force-fed an infodump.

Nexus follows several characters - sometimes feeling a bit like Guardians of the Galaxy meets Star Wars - although the Blood
Nexus is the follow-on book to Zenith in the Androma Saga and follows space pirate Andi as she has to fight tyrannical leader Nor, and help her friends who are trapped with mind control.
I read this on audiobook with a full cast narration and while the audiobook definitely wasn't ,y favourite, I think I liked the actual book better than if I would have read it in physical format like I did Zenith.

I will say that I definitely did like the world created in The Androma Saga. I like that there seems

Im not a huge syfy fan so take my review with a grain of salt.
I enjoyed the characters and the writing the Andis mission to save her crew. But I just wasnt thrilled or completely invested in if they lived or died

Andi is made out to be this badass female protagonists who's always ready to fight and break some bones, but we dont see that backed up with as much action as I would have liked. We do however get to see her not being afraid to voice her opinions or head into danger for her friends. I do wish Andis crew hadnt been absent for most of the book. I seriously missed those girls and the lack of female friendships was especially disappointing considering how I felt about Dex. I thought it was stupid an ...more

I honestly just didn't feel like I could finish this because I couldn't get into it.

It was really boring and didn't have anything to make me feel interested in the story enough to finish it.
