Synopsis

When Andra wakes up, she’s drowning.

Not only that, but she’s in a hot, dirty cave, it’s the year 3102, and everyone keeps calling her Goddess. When Andra went into a cryonic sleep for a trip across the galaxy, she expected to wake up in a hundred years, not a thousand. Worst of all, the rest of the colonists—including her family and friends—are dead. They died centuries ago, and for some reason, their descendants think Andra’s a deity. She knows she’s nothing special, but she’ll play along if it means she can figure out why she was left in stasis and how to get back to Earth.

Zhade, the exiled bastard prince of Eerensed, has other plans. Four years ago, the sleeping Goddess’s glass coffin disappeared from the palace, and Zhade devoted himself to finding it. Now he’s hoping the Goddess will be the key to taking his rightful place on the throne—if he can get her to play her part, that is. Because if his people realize she doesn’t actually have the power to save their dying planet, they’ll kill her.

With a vicious monarch on the throne and a city tearing apart at the seams, Zhade and Andra might never be able to unlock the mystery of her fate, let alone find a way to unseat the king, especially since Zhade hasn’t exactly been forthcoming with Andra. And a thousand years from home, is there any way of knowing that Earth is better than the planet she’s woken to?

Review

I really loved this book, the story is interesting and the characters are really different but loveable.

Andra find herself on a new planet without the people she loves. She is considered like a goddess on this new planet and she will try to find her way back to earth.

Zhade must go back to the city and try to realize his mother’s wish. He will take Andra in the city with him and gain the king’s favor. Or at least try.

I loved Andra, she is sweet but persistant. She is alone and realize she lost her family. She wakes up 1000 years later than due and it’s disturbing for her. Anyway she will try to save the people of the city who are in danger.

This story is original and I was kind of surprise at the end of the book.
