  1. My name is Lia Johansen, and I was named for a prisoner of war She lived in the Tiersten Internment Colony for two years, and when they negotiated the return of the prisoners, I was given her memories and sent back in her place.And I am a genetically engineered human bomb.Wow I really, really liked this Great beginning and terrific narrative not to mention some scenes that ll make you clench your teeth with tension My only quibbles the romance wasn t that interesting to me, and we cycle through [...]


  2. There are two sides, two interstellar empires, neither especially better than the other Corporations, really, fighting for resources and using their populations as they see fit They are in conflict, but as a gesture of goodwill or is it one side agrees to return 500 prisoners, civilians who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time Among the 500 is Lia, an innocuous teenage girl with no family or particular skills But Lia is not a refugee She is a bomb.I thought the starting concept of [...]


  3. I thought this book had the coolest premise 36 00 00 The clock activates so suddenly in my mind, my head involuntarily jerks a bit to the side The fog vanishes, dissipated in an instant as though it never was Memories come slotting into place, their edges sharp enough to leave furrows, and suddenly I know I know exactly who I am.My name is Lia Johansen, and I was named for a prisoner of war She lived in the Tiersten Internment Colony for two years, and when they negotiated the return of the pris [...]


  4. My name is Lia Johansen, and I was named for a prisoner of war She lived in the Tiersten Internment Colony for two years, and when they negotiated the return of the prisoners, I was given her memories and sent back in her place.And I am a genetically engineered human bomb.It is only once 16 year old Lia arrives on New Sol Station that these memories of what she truly is click into place and her internal clock starts counting down the time until she is set to explode 36 00 00 It is a great set up [...]


  5. I like books set in space I like YA I like reading about aliens NOVA had all these things but unfortunately it did not live up to its namesake What started out as an intriguing and mysterious read My name is Lia Johansen, and I was named for a prisoner of war She lived in the Tiersten Internment Colony for two years, and when they negotiated the return of the prisoners, I was given her memories and sent back in her place And I am a genetically engineered human bomb p 10.Turned out to be a lot di [...]


  6. This is to be the first of a planned 5 book series, each following a different character I loved this introductory to the world The world building is fairly sparse given that the main character is suffering from memory loss and most of the book is spent on the space station But the set up has me very excited to read The description of the station itself was very well done.I believe that the book is being marketed as adult scifi, but I think that YA readers would love this book as well It s told [...]


  7. Enjoyable, but angsty Of course, this is a YA, so not unexpected Totally unbelievable that a 13 year old could have initiated a station wide system, though.



  8. AudiobookThis book was mostly a young adult romance with a saboteur thrown in It ended okay, maybe a little cliffhanger ish I m not sure if the author is planning on writing books regarding these characters 3 stars


  9. Lia Johansen is just one of hundreds of POWs who find themselves on New Sol Space Station For most, they are just waiting for transportation back to their home worlds For a few, like Lia, there s no home to go to But even in this small group, Lia stands alone She doesn t intend to return home She never intends to leave the station She is a genetically engineered bomb, and she s been sent to destroy New Sol and everyone on it There are, of course, a few complications First, her identity used to b [...]


  10. Margaret Fortune s debut is fabulous fun The first in the Spectre War series currently projected to be 5 books, I believe begins as one thing and morphs into a completely different kind of story But what kind is something I m not going to give away That said, I m going to attempt to be somewhat vague in my review So here goes Lia Johansen is a refugee with a secret One of hundreds of POWs recently released as part of negotiations over a habitable planet called New Earth, Lia and her fellow priso [...]


  11. Nova is startlingly good A girl who has been a prisoner of war and is being released as part of a temporary peace deal, arrives on a space habitat Lia realises that she is a fa ade, a clone of a similar girl, who has been produced solely to become a walking bomb Her makers, the rebels, intend her to destroy the habitat And that is what she means to do until she malfunctions for how long This gripping read keeps throwing our emotions in the air, as we hold our breaths and then relax, only to gasp [...]


  12. This was a very decent series opener Mostly fast paced besides a few slow going portions World building was interesting entertaining but not particularly fresh Intergalactic politics, spaceships, etc The best of it was the narrator, Lia, being a human bomb There s a particularly cool scene where she has to rewire herself The PsyCorps was also a neat touch For some reason I kept imagining the station as the Citadel from Mass Effect.Considering the rest of the series will follow other characters i [...]


  13. I m rounding up a bit, but it isn t hard to do.This book is a beautiful example of first person present tense POV done right We are quickly drawn into Lia s unique situation or is she Lia Who is she Does she know who she is Her own guesses on her identity evolve, as she peels away one layer of mystery after another We endure, with her, the same process where it comes to her mission and her alternatives The secondary characters are also well drawn, and the world building is solid.As I approached [...]


  14. First of all, I want to thank for giving me the opportunity to win this book This is not my usual type of reading not a sci fi person , but this was really good Lia is most unusual and being genetically engineered and yet wanting to know her human side was a different concept and meeting Michael and doing so was also unique So I learned something about myself thru this book I need to branch out in my selection of books This author should go a long way as a writer.


  15. Wow, what a ride I couldn t stop reading I may just have a new favorite author If you enjoy sci fi and people, like to be attracted to the characters but want to be kept guessing until just about the very last moment this book is for you


  16. I received a copy of this book through the First Reads program It was OK the problem was that, for a book about a girl who is actually a bomb who may go off at any time, it was pretty lacking in suspense It is possible that a younger and less widely read reader might enjoy it than I did a long time mystery fan, every little detail that would later come to play a role in the resolution of the story seemed to stick out like it had been printed in red ink There were no real surprises or twists tha [...]


  17. Bright star Another entry in my quest for good SF for YA readers Occasional quest, I should say it s not the be all and end all of my reading And not everything I read ends up with a review So I was at WorldCon in Spokane a few weeks back, and at the Golden Duck awards I heard a great definition of YA, which was teenage protagonists making adult decisions Brilliant definition, IMHO This book certainly has that, and the science is right in there But is it at the core a good story The cover blurb [...]


  18. 3.5 StarsWow, okay, I just finished the book and the ending has left me both angry yet satisfied LOL.Let me get through the nit picks first, because honestly, that s all I have, this book was rather solid Nit Pick 1One of my problems with this book was the awkward forced futuristic slang I understand the desire and interest in changing the language spoken, especially by the younger crowd, in a society in the far off future, but what this author does is no different than how every other author I [...]


  19. Nova was not at all what I expected As I started reading it was like a YA book with a 16 year old main character 2 3 of the way through it took an unexpected twist.That twist made Lia s mission something entirely different Then there was a discovery that seemed to lead to a much different ending I was surprised Even though the entire book had been leading up to it I did not expect it to end as it did.What I liked was that unexpected twist that made this an entirely different story from what it [...]


  20. A teenage refugee discovers a countdown timer in her head.The plot here was compelling enough to keep me going, but overall, the book was average What I call Progress Bars of Suspense and TV Tropes calls Race Against the Clock was one of the main plot devices.There was also the teen romance, and I have to give some props here for mostly avoiding the love triangle clich I say mostly because the protective sister does take on a couple roles from one of the points of your typical love triangle.


  21. I won a copy for free through First Reads.I loved this book It is an absolutely amazing opening to the series The book has a great cast of characters, especially Lia Johansen who is a human bomb, and great secondary characters The plot is fantastic, without getting into spoiler territory let s just say there is much going on then it seems at the beginning I will be very eagerly awaiting the second book in the series, and I highly recommend the book to everyone.


  22. Great YA novel with twists and a very unique premise The development of Lia is fascinating with a climactic and beautifully written ending Seriously, the last chapter is Fortune s best work I m looking forward to the next novels in the series to see how she develops the characters and plot further Great read


  23. Lia Johansen is one of 500 prisoners of war exchanged during an inter stellar war and is sent to a space station But she is much She is also a genetically engineered bomb set to explode in thirty six hours and send a message.


  24. I won this book in a giveaway.The premise of this book intrigued me, so I was very excited to get an advanced copy The book takes a unique vision of the future and kept me guessing throughout I am definitely going to recommend this to my fellow sci fi loving friends


  25. Although the writing has a few issues, the story is excellent I read a lot of SciFi and this story seemed very original to me I thought the plot was well paced and the climax was phenomenal I will be keeping an eye out for the other 4 that will be written in the series Definitely recommended


  26. I just finished this book, and the tears are just falling down my face.It kept me rivited to the last page, and then just utterly destroyed me 10 10 would recommend.



  27. Lia is a human bomb named after a POW who s released as a refugee and designed to slip onto a space station and explode But her timer malfunctions, with only a few minutes left, and she s stuck on the station, wondering what to do and unable to remember any details about her mission Things get even complicated when someone from the real Lia s past, Michael, recognizes Lia and helps her learn what it means to care about people and be human As Lia grows uncertain about whether she actually wants [...]


  28. Copying an review by Hobgoblin because it largely states my views, is well written, and I didn t enjoy the book enough to spend the time to craft as good a review if I could I ve seen this in the Sci Fi section at two bookstores now but it s clearly a Young Adult book The writing is in the 7th 8th grade reading range, the main characters are all teens, foul language is almost non existent, the most risqu moment is the electricity of a first kiss, and despite a grim premise it s very sanitary The [...]
