Tundra 37 by Aubrie Dionne - Review

Welcome to Reading It All's second stop on the Tundra 37 tour hosted by Enchanted Book Promotions!

Title: Tundra 37
Author: Aubrie Dionne
Publication Date: February 7, 2012
Publisher: Entangled Publishing, LLC

Synopsis: Gemme is a hi-tech matchmaker who pairs the next generation of Lifers aboard the Expedition, a deep space transport vessel destined for Paradise 18. When the identity of her lifemate pops up on her screen, she’s shocked that he’s the achingly gorgeous and highly sought after Lieutenant Miles 
Brentwood—a man oblivious to her existence. Believing everyone will think she contrived the match, she erases it from the computer’s memory.

Just as comets pummel the ship and destroy the pairing system forever. With the Expedition disabled, the colonists must crash land on the barren ice world of Tundra 37 where Gemme is reassigned to an exploratory mission, led by Lieutenant Brentwood. Only in the frozen tundra does she understand the shape of his heart and why the computer has entwined their destinies.

My Thoughts: Wow! This book was a rush. It took a slightly different path than Paradise 21. The ship, Expedition, is being run by twins who have telepathic powers. They have been controlling the ship since it's take off from Old Earth. We actually get to follow the story of the twins, through the eyes of Mestasis. I loved reading about what Old Earth was like before it was abandoned. 

I loved reading about Gemme and Miles. She starts out as this shy girl but through the book she shows that she has so much strength. She is brave and smart. Miles is caring, and concerned for all the people on the Expedition. He is brave and completes his duties, regardless of his own safety. They are both great characters.

The planet, Tundra 37, sounds amazing. It may be a frozen wasteland but I am just picturing all of that white! The animals on this planet sounded very interesting. I loved the descriptions, and that alien mammoth sounds horrible. 

Aubrie Dionne has amazing talent. Both Paradise 21 and Tundra 37 drew me right in and kept me wanting more. I love books like that. I am looking forward to what she comes up with next!
