About the Book
Jazz Bashara is a criminal.
Well, sort of. Life on Artemis, the first and only city on the moon, is tough if you’re not a rich tourist or an eccentric billionaire. So smuggling in the occasional harmless bit of contraband barely counts, right? Not when you’ve got debts to pay and your job as a porter barely covers the rent.
Everything changes when Jazz sees the chance to commit the perfect crime, with a reward too lucrative to turn down. But pulling off the impossible is just the start of her problems, as she learns that she’s stepped square into a conspiracy for control of Artemis itself—and that now, her only chance at survival lies in a gambit even riskier than the first.

4 Out of this World Stars🌑 🌟🌟🌟🌟
It has been quite some time since I’ve read a book that did not take place on earth in contemporary times… so this book was very refreshing and a lot of fun! I really enjoyed The martian even though it was not my typical reading genre… this book had shades of The martian, but if you go into this book expecting a repeat you will be disappointed… this book had a younger vibe to it, a much different storyline, and its own cast of sarcastic sassy characters….
Jazz really reminded me of a heroine in a YA fantasy/science fiction/dystopian book… she was strong, independent, fears, brave, and she got herself into a lot of dangerous situations…. just like most Fantasy heroines Jazz did a lot of things without thinking them completely through… but I really liked Jazz more than most of those other heroines! She had a much better personality, she was sarcastic, Smart, and not whiny (biggest bonus)…
The setting of the moon was really quite cool… I really like how the author envisioned the city on the moon, and I think he did a wonderful job of describing it… as far as the science… there were a lot of moon fax, but I did not think it was science heavy at all… The book was really more about Jazz and how in trying to better her situation she got caught up in a huge conspiracy to take over the moon! The story was told with a lot of humor… and fun banter between colorful characters…
Definitely recommend and encourage you to go in with an open mind and remember this Book has its own story to tell with its own set of characters!
