Friday Memes: Polaris by Mindee Arnett

Happy Friday everybody!!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting Polaris by Mindee Arnett. This is the science fiction sequel to Avalon which I read a while ago. I got this eARC from Edelweiss. Here is the description from Amazon:
Jeth Seagrave and his crew of mercenaries are pulled into one last high-stakes mission in this breathtaking sequel to Mindee Arnett's Avalon, which SLJ called "an exciting piece of science fiction that keeps up its energy from beginning to end" in a starred review.

Jeth Seagrave and his crew are on the run. The ITA, still holding Jeth's mother in a remote research lab, is now intent on acquiring the metatech secrets Jeth's sister Cora carries inside her DNA, and Jeth is desperate to find the resources he needs to rescue his mother and start a new life outside the Confederation. But the ITA is just as desperate, and Jeth soon finds himself pursued by a mysterious figure hell-bent on capturing him and his crew—dead or alive.

With nowhere to run and only one play left, Jeth enters into a bargain with the last person he ever thought he'd see again: Daxton Price, the galaxy's newest and most fearsome crime lord. Dax promises to help Jeth, but his help will only come at a price—a price that could mean sacrificing everything Jeth has fought for until now.
Beginning:
The spaceport's casino was the perfect spot for the deal to go down.
Friday 56:
She bobbed her head and slid her arms around his waist, squeezing him. "Did you miss me?"

  1. This looks a little too heavy on the scifi for me but the premise does sound intriguing! I hope it's as much of a page turner as it sounds!

  2. I like the 56. The Book Beginning gave me trouble because of the Sci-Fi references. I would like to one day really like Sci-Fi. Still working at it.

  3. This sounds like an intense action-filled story in an outer space setting. If the plot centers on the characters (rather than the fight scenes or technology), I'd enjoy it.
    My Friday post features FETCHING LOVE.

  4. I am not a huge sci-fi fan, but I do enjoy reading them. Sci-fi is like any other genre, there is always that hidden gem that makes you wonder why you didn't like the genre. Thanks for sharing.
