The Almost Girl by Amalie Howard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
ARC provided via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
One look at this cover and I knew I had to read this book to find out if the main character was as fierce as she looked. The Almost Girl did not disappoint. It was this SciFi lover's dream book full of fast-paced action, twists and turns that will keep you guessing, and one kick-ass heroine.
Riven has trained all her life to be the best. Now, at seventeen, she is at the top as Legion General of Neospes, a world coming back from a disastrous android war. Riven will need to use all her training and skills she has acquired to find the long-lost brother, Caden, of Prince Cale. This mission will take Riven to a new world, Earth, where she will have to find her target and bring him back safely. Will Riven be able to complete her mission? What new obstacles will she face?
What a fascinating world Amalie Howard has created! The characters are interesting and continue to evolve as the story unfolds. I enjoyed seeing Riven's character develop. She starts off as a strong solider with single minded purpose and morphs into a well rounded individual who has emotions but is able to put them aside to complete the mission. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an action packed story that you don't want to put down.
