Will you fall?

On Earth, seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander was taught to never peek, but if she hopes to survive life on her new planet, Loge, her eyes must never shut. Because in this world, pleasure is everything, held up by a ruling body that keeps their people in check by giving them what they want and closing their eyes to what’s really happening around them. The only hope Loge has is to move its people to Earth, and they have a plan.

Thousands of humans crossed over to Loge after a poisonous neurotoxin released into Earth’s atmosphere, nearly killing them. They sought refuge in hopes of finding a new life, but what they became were slaves, built to siege war against their home planet. That is, unless Ari and Jackson can stop them. But on Loge, nothing is as it seems…and no one can be trusted.

By Stacia (the 2010 club) September 09, 2013

I don't have to start a rebellion. It's already begun.

3.5 stars. I'm actually happy that Book 2 of The Taking reads less like Lux this time around and more like Divergent instead. While many might argue that Divergent isn't exactly the gold standard of excellence in sci-fi, I was more th ...more

"My first thought every day for the rest of my life... will be you."

I was so psyched when I found out I won an eARC of Hover from Entangled! Needless to say, I started it immediately. Like the moment I received it. Hover, if you can imagine, is even better than Gravity! I gave both books 5 stars but I wish there was a way I could di ...more

Hover, the sequel to Gravity, was a fulfilling second book in the series although I did have a few qualms with it. Despite the few issues I had, the growth of the characters and the better understanding of the world building made this book a successful one ...more

Review: 4 ½ out of 5 stars

Contains possible spoilers from the first book, Gravity.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in The Taking series, Gravity so I was more than eager to read the sequel Hover and it certainly lived up to all of my expectations and kept me flipping through the pages wanting to ...more

Hover continues the story of one girl’s extraordinary duty to try and bring aliens and humans and allow them to live in peace with each other without the threat of war over their shoulder all the time.

After the events of Gravity, Ari Alexander is now stuck on Loge, the land of the Ancients with no ...more

Review also posted at Ja čitam, a ti?

Apart from all the sequels that are coming out this year for me this one was one of the most expected title. I really, but really wanted to get that purple sky. But for real, when you leave me hanging with a cliffhanger it drives me crazy and when you add a new p ...more

That cliffhanger..

I give this book 5 stars! Just like the first book I enjoyed it. I liked this book just a bit more.
I love how we got to see more about loge and I love the new characters.
And Ari and Jackson are just adorable.

This is a sequel to Gravity and you MUST read Gravity before reading this. You cannot just jump in and hope to catch up. It had been a while since I read Gravity and even I needed the refresher that the author gives when starting the book. It took me a little bit for me to get my bearings and to get ...more

By Kinga January 12, 2016

I just woke up one day and thought to myself: Hey, have I finished that book about some alien invasion and hot alien dude? So I looked for the book and have been busy since then reading it.

It's action packed. Ari has her hands full of a new planet, rebellion talks, torture. Her mind filled with pla ...more

I feel like Hover wasn't quite as good as Gravity, the first book in this series, but only by a little bit. I still read this book pretty quickly and while I was interested enough to keep reading, I also wasn’t left feeling completely satisfied. I felt like I wanted a little bit more from this book, ...more

Wow. What a sequel!!! I am seriously floored right now! I enjoyed the first book as you saw above, but I LOVED this second one! It has everything I could ever want- romance, action, betrayal, and it's a SCI-FI! Woooo! I'm so glad I read these back to back- but... holy cliffhanger on this one! I can' ...more

This is the second book in The Taking series. It picks up right where the first one left off, which is exactly what it was supposed to do after the major cliffhanger the first book ended on. And while the story is fast-paced and exciting, sometimes I wanted to throw this book out the window. Why doe ...more

Hover is book two of The Taking series and brings you back into the world of Ari and Jackson. If you recall, book one left off with thousands of humans being forced to cross over to Loge because of the poisonous neurotoxin that was released. The crossover was supposed to become but it turns out, the ...more

An eARC copy was provided to read and review.

After Gravity left its readers with a huge cliffhanger, I honestly didn’t know what to expect from Hover. But I just knew that this book would be well worth the wait and even better than the first.

After the recent events of Gravity, Ari will find her ...more
