I received an ARC for Ashwin, though I still purchased the book to support the authors. All opinions in this review are my own.
ASHWIN! I've been waiting so long for this book, since the authors told us about the spinoff series 'Gideon's Riders'. I absolutely loved the Beyond series and devoured every book, more than once, and was very much looking forward to delve deeper into Sector One. This love story is truly beautiful, set in a dystopian time after the war. Kora and Ashwin are multi-dimensional characters, who are learning as much about themselves as we the reader are. Kora is smart, funny, independent and a badass doctor. At first, one might think that Ashwin is just this robotic killing machine, but it doesn't take long before we come to see him as he really is - human, flawed, and actually quite funny. There are nice glimpses into the characters we know and love from Sector Four as well. I am 100% hooked on this series and I cannot wait until the next book.
