Goodreads Summary:

She’s a soldier.

Noemi Vidal is seventeen years old and sworn to protect her planet, Genesis. She’s willing to risk anything—including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she’s a rebel.

He’s a machine.

Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel has advanced programming that’s begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he’s an abomination.

Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they’re not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they’re forced to question everything they’d been taught was true.

Sneak Peek:

"The scars of the war still lingered. Noemi understands that more than most. But even she, along with every one else  had believed they were truly safe."

Initial Thoughts

I picked this up because it was everyone online, and the cover looked amazing... oh and there was no wait to get it on audio.  And it was very much a typical space-science-fiction type story. By that I mean, they are flying space ships through most of the book, and there is an odd AI character.  Granted, Abel is quite the character... but still.  I was hooked though because this story screams of religion, and I was curious where that would go...
