Lizzy is one of hundreds of cadets in a biome on mars. They’re all working together to cultivate plant life while the planet is terraformed. Every week when the cadets fall asleep, their memories are erased. They live the same week over and over again. But one morning Lizzy wakes up and she remembers…everything...
I love Lizzy. She is antisocial and awkward, which I can certainly relate to. There’s this cool feature that she can relive others memories and finding out how that’s possible added to the amazing novel that is Biome. The descriptions are gorgeous and lush with detail without slowing down the story. Once we meet Noah, who I love by the way, and a plan starts forming, things go from amazing to freaking epic. The twists, the secrets, the truth, it all unravels and Lizzy is stuck with all that knowledge crammed in her head. No wonder she is getting headaches.
As much as I love this book, the ending is…a total let down. There’s some twist out of left field that doesn’t fit and then it’s a to be continued. So it’s a really long half of a book. Why split it into two books? Why not have an ending worthy of the story? I feel like the author is trying to stretch the story out to make more money with two books. One book with a satisfying ending would have really cinched this author as a must read for me. Personally, I will not be continuing with this series.
Biome had a lot of potential but that ending really ruined the story for me.
