Pax Novis by Erica Cameron is a YA SciFi, LGBT story in space!
“Cira Antares is deeply loyal to two things: Pax Novis—the cargo ship captained by her mother that transports supplies across war-torn star systems—and her personal mission to save war orphans. But hiding them as stowaways on the ship is illegal, and if any of them were found, not even her mother could protect Cira from the consequences.
She has successfully kept her secret…until supplies start to go missing. Food. Clothing. Tools. All signs point to her stowaways, but they wouldn’t do anything to risk exposing themselves—or her. Especially not Riston, the oldest of the group and someone Cira has grown close to. Someone she might even be falling in love with…
And petty thefts are only the beginning—whole ships are disappearing now.
Not caught in a firefight. Not destroyed by another planet. Vanishing. Without a trace.
And Pax Novis is next.”
This book was interesting.
We are thrown into a scifi thriller set in space, and to make it more engrossing, there’s a killer loose on the cargo ship!
It’s an adventure story of a girl who smuggles orphans through the galaxy aboard her mother’s ship, but when things go missing, everything begins to point towards her, leading her to find out who is really stealing the stuff. And, she better find out before she’s next.
There is a lot of sexual diversity in this one as well between the characters. I didn’t feel like the romances took over the story itself, so if you like lighter, romance-driven stories with tons of fun, scifi elements, you will really enjoy this one as much as I did.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. The world building was unique and kept my interest from start to finish.
