Lost meets The 100 in this action-packed YA science fiction series.

Blind and broken, orphaned teenager Jonah Lincoln reluctantly boards a
rescue ship bound for the planet Thetis, but not before it picks up a
few more surprising and dangerous survivors from the massacre on the
moon Achilles. After regaining his sight, Jonah sees the gated colony
on Thetis is just as he feared–cloaked in mystery and under an
oppressive rule with no one to trust–and that outside the walls,
it’s even worse. Surrounded by terrifying new landscapes and
creatures, Jonah and his friends fight to save the colony and restore
order to the planet.

Thetis is the second book in the Deep Sky Saga, and let me tell you, it gets even crazier this time around. I was able to read Achilles last year, and you can check out my review of that one here.

Now, if you haven't yet read Achilles, you may not want to read this review, as it will most likely contain some spoilers. Proceed with caution...

Thetis picks up where Achilles left off. Jonah and some of the other survivors have been rescued and are taken back to the planet they were originally meant to land on. But they no longer receive the welcome they expected to. Instead, the other colonists seem angry with them, blaming them for things beyond their control.

Jonah is annoyed by this, but he tries to take things in stride. Unfortunately, it's easier said than done. Mirker, the man in charge, seems nice, but there's an underlying aggression to him. And then there's the strange creatures on Thetis, along with the "druggies" who took verve and are now completely off their rockers. However, there may be more to their craziness than anyone knows.

When Jonah starts unraveling the secrets of what's really going on, he realizes his life is about to change in a big way. But is he ready for that responsibility? 

I really, really enjoyed Thetis. It was intense and dark and crazy, and I enjoyed every second of it. I was like, what's going to happen to Jonah next? Like, this poor kid can't catch a break at all. But the more into the story you get, the more you sort of understand why his life is one giant nightmare. Well, not really, but it is pretty awful. 

I loved the crazy imagery I got from the descriptions of Thetis, the creatures on the planet, etc. I feel like these books would make awesome movies, because they'd be so...visual. I like that.

I absolutely hated so many characters this time around, and there were other characters I was glad to see weren't as bad as I originally thought. So that was a plus.

I'm just really looking forward to book three. Like, I cannot wait. I need it now. 

I highly recommend this series, and if you haven't yet read Achilles, you need to get on that ASAP. Both stories are fantastic, and if you like YA sci-fi, you'll enjoy these books.

I give Thetis 4.5 stars.
The Deep Sky Saga Book 1

Young colonists find themselves stranded on an unpopulated moon—and not
as alone as they thought—in a series debut from the author of 
The Red Bishop.

The year is 2221, and humans have colonized a planet called Thetis in the

Silver Foot Galaxy. After a tragic accident kills dozens of teenage
colonists, Thetis’s leaders are desperate to repopulate. 
So Earth sends the Mayflower 2a state-of-the-art spaceship—
across the universe to bring new homesteaders to the colony.
For orphaned teen Jonah Lincoln, the move to Thetis is a chance to
reinvent himself, to be strong and independent and brave, the way he
could never be on Earth. But his dreams go up in smoke when their
ship crash-lands, killing half the passengers and leaving the rest
stranded—not on Thetis, but on its cruel and unpopulated moon, Achilles.
Between its bloodthirsty alien life forms and its distance from their
intended location, Achilles is a harrowing landing place. When all of
the adult survivors suddenly disappear, leaving the teenage
passengers to fend for themselves, Jonah doubts they’ll survive at
all, much less reach Thetis—especially when it appears Achilles
isn’t as uninhabited as they were led to believe.

The fourth of six kids, Greg Boose grew up on a large produce farm
in northeast Ohio. He received his undergraduate degree from Miami
University, and then later received his M.F.A. at Minnesota State
University Moorhead where he focused on screenwriting and fiction. He
lives in Santa Monica with his two young daughters.
