An ancient Hopi myth says people arrived on tiny silver pods that fell from the sky.
But the truth is far more terrifying.
Two-hundred fifty-eight teens are sent from a dying Earth to a terraformed Mars as part of the Emergence Program, mankind’s last hope before solar flares finish off their planet and species. Among the brave pioneers are sixteen-year-old Joey Westen and her twin brother, Jesse.
After only minutes in space, something triggers a total ship lock down.
With the help of their roommates, the Matsuda twins (notorious hackers and shady secret-keepers), Joey and Jesse stumble onto an extremist plot to sabotage the Emergence Program.
But Joey and Jesse didn’t travel to the deepest pits of space and leave their mother behind to be picked off in a high-tech tin can. They’ll lie, hack, and even kill to survive the voyage and make it to Mars.
I didn’t know what to expect with Project Emergence. The summary reminded me of The 100 so I was left thinking it will be something similar. I was left a bit short. I wanted more but it was well paced. The characters are relatable. A typically YA novel with the potential of a book 2.
I love science fiction and space travel. Any lover of science fiction will love this book. Though it would be much more.
Overall I would give Project Emergence 4 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
