Product Description

Aries has lived her entire life aboard mankind's last hope, the New
Dawn, a spaceship traveling toward a planet where mankind can begin
anew- a planet that won't be reached in Aries' lifetime. As one of the
last genetically desirable women in the universe,she must marry her
designated genetic match and produce the next generation for this
centuries long voyage.

But Aries has other plans.

When her desperate escape from the New Dawn strands her on a desert
planet, Aries discovers rumors about pirates - humans who have escaped
her before its demise - are true. Handsome, genetically imperfect
Striker possess the freedom Aries' envies, and the two connect on a
level she never thought possible. But pursued by her match from above
and hunted by the planet's native inhabitants, Aries quickly learns
freedom will come at a hefty price.

The life of the man she loves.

2.0 out of 5 stars ehh, didn't work for me 9 December 2016

I couldn't finish this one, it was just so boring. I liked the sample I read and thought it would be really interesting but it quickly went downhill. I just couldn't make myself read anymore because I didn't care what happened to the characters. Aries and Striker also came across like teenagers. They just didn't feel like adults.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spaceships, New planets and lifemates. Another fantastic novel by Aubrie Dionne! 5 June 2013
By Nancy Allen (The Avid Reader) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Aries Ryder had lived her entire life aboard the spaceship the New Dawn. Aries didn't like living her whole life on a ship, she was very determined not to. The New Dawn was headed to a new planet like earth, Paradise 21. Only thing was Aries would never live on Paradise 21 and she wanted off the ship. On the New Dawn your whole life was planned out for you. The computer picked your lifemate for you and you spent the rest of your life with that person. The computer also picked your life career for you from results of the test that you took. Test that you were trained for since the first day started school. Aries wanted no part of the life that she had been dealt. So she has been making plans for a while to get off the ship. She stole an escape pod and left the headed for a planet called Sahara 354. She had no clue what she would find on the planet but I guess to her it had to be better than marrying someone you didn't like much less love besides that someone you didn't even know.

After Aries crashed on Sahara 354 she ran into a little trouble with the life force on the planet. She was very lucky that she wasn't the only human on the planet. Striker had been stranded on the planet for five years by his own crew members, people he trusted. Striker had found a map to a new planet and his crew stole his ship and left him behind. But as soon as they realized that the map wasn't going to help them seeings how Striker had encoded it so no one could find it and get to the planet without him. Striker is a very smart man; he knows what he is doing.

Lieutenant Astor Barliss the man that Aries had been matched up with by the computer went looking for her when she failed to show up for a wedding. When he couldn't find her in her personal cell he called the main control deck and had them to activate her locator he found out that she had left the ship. He told them to inform the commander that she was missing and they were going to have to turn around. Barliss was very determined to get Aries back no matter what it cost him or the people on the New Dawn. A woman that he was going to marry was not going to embarrass him like this and get away with it. Barliss is the kind of man that likes to be the boss, to be in control. I can just see him not exactly running down the corridors of the ship but at a very brisk walk not shouting but in a very loud voice saying "stop the ship, stop the ship we have to turn around, now". The kind of man he is, having this picture in my mind kind of cracks me up.

I knew I had to read Paradise 21 after I read my first novel Colonization by Aubrie Dionne. I had to know more about Paradise 21 and other people from earth. I wanted to learn how their ancestors destroyed earth. I have always been a Star Trek fan and knew that the New Dawn series would be a great read especially after reading Colonization. I love Aubrie Dionne's writing she is amazing. I love reading science fiction and fantasy novels. I can't wait to know more about other people on some of the other ships that left earth behind to find a new life on a planet similar to earth. I have all intentions of reading the rest of the series as I do own them. This is a very great series and I highly recommended that anyone who likes science fiction or even if you don't, then this would be a great series to start with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spaceships, aliens, and sand worms oh my! 19 March 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What can I say about this fantastic novel? The plot blew my mind. The setting took my breath. The characters stole my heart. And the love story warmed my soul. Paradise 21 is the perfectly crafted Sci-fi novel. You won't find any corny cheesy moments. It is so visually enticing you'll forget you're on planet Earth.

The moment I picked up the novel to read, my inner sci-fi fiend swelled with inexplicable happiness. Though categorized as a romance, the book is written so well that even hardcore sci-fi-loving men would thoroughly enjoy the adventure.

Paradise 21 contains all the elements that make an excellent space adventure. There's a desert planet with reptilian alien creatures and sand worms. (Dude, you can't have a dessert planet without sand worms! Just sayin.) There's space pirates and alien ships. You've got a totalitarian human society on a ship traveling towards a new planet after Earth has been completely destroyed by humans. Then there's a girl desperate to seek freedom from this controlled environment and a man searching a way to escape after being trapped on the desert rock for five years. When she crashes on his planet things explode.

And you're just going to have to buy the book and read what happens next. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story full of engaging characters! 27 February 2012

Paradise 21 was a very refreshing read for me. The setting is far in the future. The Earth has become uninhabitable and humans are forced to live in space. The heroine, Aries, escapes from the New Dawn, a spaceship full of people who are locked into their lots in life by the very genes that make them who they are. Their genetic makeup decides their jobs and even who they have to marry.

Intent on escaping her supposedly computer-arranged marriage, Aries takes an escape pod to a dangerous desert world, where she meets the space pirate, Striker. Striker carries his own emotional baggage after being abandoned on the planet by his crew, and the one person he thought he could trust.

This is an exceptional tale. Aries is a bit naive in the beginning, but grows a lot as a character throughout the story. Striker grows as well, although he didn't have quite so far to go, in my opinion. There are also many very engaging--and not-so-engaging but still intriguing--secondary characters. I'm excited to read the next book of the series!
