    Guys... I LOVE this series! I just finished this in one sitting as I couldn’t stop reading. If you’re a fan of the Illuminae books, I think you’d enjoy this series.

    Naomi, along with 5 of her brilliant International Space Training Camp classmates, and two AI’s, lift off on the spaceship Pontus to head to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, to begin the years long mission to start colonization of the ice moon as Earth deteriorates. Their mission to begin the terraforming process is imperative so that the

    YOU GUYS. If you haven't read the first book, The Final Six, you cannot start this one. It really wouldn't make sense, just go back and read it. I promise you'll fly through it. This book though? HOLY CRAP, it was so good. I stayed up all night reading this, and if you're a fan of the Hunger Games/Divergent model of adults with ulterior motives manipulating teenagers who end up being smarter, then this is your next read. Naomi is an amazing, strong female lead (even with her panic attacks!), and ...more

    I loved The Final Six when I read it last year and for some reason I completely missed the announcement for this book? So when I saw it on twitter I just assumed it was just announced and it'd take a year or two to be published but??? It's coming out next month???? I'M GOING TO SCREAM

    Wow! This book is so intense! The first one was already so good, but this one was somehow even better. Both books really keep you guessing about what’s really going on, and are full of twists right up to the very end.

    Huh... Well I didn't expect that. My review is now up on the blog for the blog tour! I will say though that if this is the final book in the series, then some things should've been expanded on way better to make the ending more fleshed out. The pacing wasn't as balanced as I had hoped. But I'll wait to see if there's more. If so, then we shall see.

    *View my reviews at*

    Though I am neither adventurous nor physically fit — nor, even, brave — I am paradoxically obsessed with action movies. And, more specifically, action movies featuring disasters.

    For some reason, I love seeing what people do when the chips are down. How they handle the stress and strain inherent to facing what always seems to be all but certain death.

    Despite my penchant for these movies, though, I would never endeavor to be the one doing the saving.

    With the Earth’s climate change, life has become tenuous as monster storms rip across the planet and ocean levels continue to rise. Several nations have come together in an effort to seed mankind elsewhere by building a state of the art spacecraft. After a rigorous screening and training program, the Final Six were chosen to launch on an ambitious mission to Europa. Naomi, one of the six young adults chosen, deeply misses her family and love interest Leo. She also has serious reservations ...more

    Thank you MBC Books, Booksparks, and Harperteen for sending me a finished copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Six weeks out from Earth, and all is not well on the spaceship Pontus. Comms are down, and only eight are on board, six teenagers and two AI robots. The communications antenna is missing, so it could only have been sabotage, but who on board doesn't want them talking? Their mission is to terraform Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, because back on Earth humanity's prospects

    I received this book from the publisher for honest Review.

    I felt like I was watching the show The 100s action pack.

    Wow what a surprising read. Couldn’t put it down and enjoyed every minute of it. Has a nice flow right from the end of the other books to this book. Just when I thought it was ending you turned and keep the reader at the edge of their chair.
    Keep up the great work. Can’t wait for the next adventure.

    This was my first time reading anything from this author. This was a awesome read.

    I was given an advance readers copy of this book. It is a sequel to another book and would make more sense had I read that first. Six kids have been chosen for a space voyage to Europa. A finalist who didn't make it goes up illegally after them in a private ship. Intrigues, teen drama, crazed AIs, and alien life forms make this a fast paced story despite the fact that the majority of the characters are trapped in a spaceship for an extended period of time. There is a impressive cliffhanger ...more

    I am so honored to be given a manuscript of The Life Below. I absolutely loved The Final Six, so having a chance to read the sequel early made my heard float to the moon.

    We last left off with The Final Six ready for take off to Europa and Leo getting ready with Dr. Wagner on a solo flight to meet up with The Final Six. What could go wrong right?

    This book will give you the creepy crawlies and remind you to use caution, we're not the one ones. This book also shows a faint glimpse into Alexandra

    “We’re going dark and you won’t know why or what it means, but you’ll assume the worst.”

    Picking up where The Final Six left off, Alexandra Monir plunges the reader into the dark depths of space alongside Naomi where “who?” becomes a nagging question as six hand-picked teenage astronauts make their way to Europa, a red-tinged, ice encrusted moon trapped in Jupiter’s orbit.

    Although a goal is in sight, internal sabotage, a fear worse than any other on a ship manned by teenager researchers, derails

    Thrilling ride through outer space with a chilling major reveal at the end. Hope there's another book in this series that will address the cliffhanger ending. Fans of a space Divergent are sure to be riveted by this engaging series.

    Intense space adventure. The story had me on the edge of my seat, I had to know what was going to happen next. Plenty of times I found myself exclaiming out loud and reading faster
