Book Summary:

A STOLEN VIAL

Eternigen is the miracle drug that allows humans to travel in deep space. Seventeen-year-old space captain Tabitha “Dix” Dixon has the only vial of Eternigen in existence.

A RELENTLESS ENEMY

Eira Ninge always gets what she wants. She wants the Eternigen, and she’ll do anything—and kill anyone—to get it.

A DEADLY CURSE

Since Dix stole the vial, everyone she loves seems fated to die. When young resistance messenger Jordan Berrett steals her heart, she has to decide if it’s worth risking his life to let him get close. When Dix is involved, even falling in love can turn deadly.

A CHANCE FOR FREEDOM

If Dix can get her hands on more Eternigen, she and her crew can escape the solar system, leaving her dark past behind. But getting the Eternigen won’t be easy, and the bodies keep piling up. In the end, the cost of freedom may be too high.

 

 I’m a big fan of sci-fi and Liberty was a fun example of the genre.  There was plenty of humor and spunk with a bit of romance thrown in as well.  I felt the characters were well drawn and the created world was complex and interesting.  To be honest, it even made me cry!

The main character, Dix, is spunky and sarcastic.  She’s too hot-headed and impulsive for her own good and that can be annoying.  But, she takes the blame for her own actions and doesn’t attempt to blame others.

 

Rating: 3.5 Stars – Good book

Content:

Violence: There is quite a bit of sci-fi type violence.

Language: Clean – Used made up foul language “flark”, “jackwagon” and “skud”.

Sex: Light – Romantic tension and a few kisses.
