Gemme is a hi-tech matchmaker who pairs the next generation of Lifers aboard the Expedition, a deep space transport vessel destined for Paradise 18. When the identity of her lifemate pops up on her screen, she’s shocked that he’s the achingly gorgeous and highly sought after Lieutenant Miles Brentwood—a man oblivious to her existence. Believing everyone will think she contrived the match, she erases it from the computer’s memory. Just as comets pummel the ship and destroy the pairing system forever. With the Expedition disabled, the colonists must crash land on the barren ice world of Tundra 37 where Gemma is reassigned to an exploratory mission, led by Lieutenant Brentwood. Only in the frozen tundra does she understand the shape of his heart and why the computer has entwined their destinies.
Loved it! I loved the vivid imagery, I loved the various stories of the different characters lives, I loved the Seer’s memories of Old Earth, I enjoyed the dreams of alternate times and places that the lifers on board the Expedition experienced, and I liked the fact that I didn’t get lost in scie... ...more
It was simply an astoundingly melancholic and an unlikely emotional experience for me to read Tundra 37. So, to say that Tundra 37 is an unpredictable read would be an understatement. I didn't expect the book to tug at my heartstrings. The book really made me appreciate the life on Earth more tha... ...more

I loved that Tundra 37 wasn’t based on the romance, I love that the actual plotline was based on the survival of the lifers aboard The Expedition. It made this book very addicting to read. I really enjoyed it.

Judging by the cover and reviews, I thought I was in for a steamy Sci-fi Romance ride. Well, that's not exactly true. This book is more like a Sci-fi thriller/adventure with romantic elements. I was very surprised on how well constructed and interesting this story turned out to be. No... ...more

Tundra 37, by Aubrie Dionne, is the second in her New Dawnscience-fiction series. Intriguingly, this is the sort of series that really doesn’t need to be read in order, with connected histories but entirely different futures. Colonists in the previous novel searched for Paradise 21, but colonists... ...more

My Take: Let's go in order here. At first, the novel was a bit confusing. You get thrown right into the story and sufficed to say, I had no clue what was happening. That didn't last too long though. I was glad to know what was happening. One thing that I loved about this book was that you get rig... ...more
I started reading this book 2 days ago and was hooked right away... I didn't want to put it down. It's a sci-fi with a romance ... but it's much more than that. The author weaves the stories of many of the Lifers and others into the book.
The primary story line is the relationship between Gemme,... ...more
Gemme Reiner’s world is made up mostly of numbers. It’s her job to analyze data aboard the Expedition, specifically data related to human pairings. And she’s fine with that.

Wow! This book was a rush. It took a slightly different path than Paradise 21. The ship, Expedition, is being run by twins who have telepathic powers.

The First Line: "I'm losing her. Abysme guides the vessel in silence, her blind eyes rolling as she senses our course, two hundred years away from Paradise 18."
This is one of the greatest science fiction novels I have read in a long long time. I actually don't read many space novels and this book... ...more
I loved the first book in this series, Paradise 21, and was thrilled to discover that this book was even better. There was so much depth to the storyline, it kept me turning pages all day. I didn't know how the author would tie it all together in the end, but I had faith that she would. Brillian... ...more
I thought the book was better than paradise 21. If you like easy to read and well thought out books you will love this one! It is easy to put down and pick up where you left off and still understand what you are reading and what is going on.

Today's review is on Tundra 37 by Aubrie Dionne
Deciding to branch out of my comfort zone a bit I agreed to read Tundra 37. What I found was science fiction romance that could melt even the coldest of hearts. Fluctuating between chapters of the past and the present day, the reader can't help but t... ...more
With Book 1 of the New Dawn series, we were introduced to a main character running away from a computer-generated life-mate match because she didn't like the guy. With this book, Aubrie Dionne tackles a different angle, with a main character who does like the guy she's paired up with. It is refr... ...more
