“They killed me, but I survived.”

Three years after Rory Riordan foiled her own murder, she still trusts no one. Not Dr. Z, the eccentric college professor who has taken her under his wing, not Benji, the endearing, attractive classmate who insists on following her around, and certainly not Cy, the beautifully dark and mysterious boy who sits on the first row in Dr. Z’s Astrobiology class and asks far too many questions.

When Rory witnesses Cy being abducted by soldiers in the middle of the night, she finds herself submersed in a world that holds even more secrets than she could imagine--even darker secrets than her own.

From #1 New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire, experience the perfect combination of her bestselling books Providence & Beautiful Disaster. This New Adult Sci-Fi Romance is an action-packed, whiplash-inducing roller coaster ride. Page after page, this unpredictable, dark and sexy nail biter will keep readers guessing until the very end!

Apolonia by Jamie McGuire
My Rating 3 out of 5

This is definitely for the SciFi lover.

It starts off with Rory thinking about the violent night that happened three years ago (and that is brought up many times during the story). Rory is smart, damaged, and just wants to be left alone. Benji is the too happy, handsome guy that follows her around like a love-sick puppy. And then there is Cyrus, the handsome and brilliant new student she thinks is trying to take her research assistant spot with the family friend and favorite professor.

There is somewhat of a "love" triangle between her, Benji and Cyrus.......but not really. There is one sex scene and I jumped for joy because I thought she FINALLY chose the right one.......and now we are getting to the point. NOT.  I didn't know where this story was going for the longest. Finally the action kicked in near the end, the race is humvees, alien ships, gun fire and explosives, and the world was saved. The End.

I don't know how feel about this book. I gave it 3 stars because it held my interest for the most part and I can see it turned into a movie on the SyFy channel.
