Good Morning my Darlings!! I have a special treat for you today here on CEWTNK. My first tour for BTS has been plotted out and scheduled, and is kicking off its pre-tour party here today!! Everyone welcome P.I. Barrington and her book Isadora Daystar!! Below you will find the book details, the tour schedule, my review, and the rafflecopter for you to enter to win you own copy!! Let's start by taking a look at the book details:
When drug addled assassin Isadora DayStar finally snags a major interplanetary killing job, she thinks it will both support her habit and revise her status as the laughingstock of her profession. Instead, she embarks on a journey that brings her face to face with her tortured past.
After botching yet another assassination job, ex-military gunner Isadora steals a highly desired new type of weapon as payment. To escape her infuriated employer she stows away on a plague infested ship that spirals downward toward the nearest planet. In an attempt to escape the crashing craft, Isadora finds both an escape pod and the only other survivor, a teenage girl, Iphedeiah. They take flight on a series of encounters from murderous monks to interplanetary pirates while Isadora tries to hide her addiction along the way. They slowly form a grudging bond that grows into friendship and trust. When Isadora kills an old contact to save the girl, they are separated only to be captured individually and then tortured by Caine Dureaux, Isadora's employer to extract the location of the weapon. Who will blink first?
Isadora really isn't a likable person. I spent the first part of the book in between a state of pity and disgust for her. She really made some terrible choices. But after the pieces of her past start filtering in, you begin to at least understand her. She is basically using every means at her disposal to forget. Forget her past, forget what she does for a living, forget what she has done. Not to mention that she is a full blown drug-addict. She really needed help. Unfortunately her luck with falling into helping hands is non-existent. Her situation constantly titters on a bad to worse scale. It makes you wonder at some point why she just doesn't give up. But she doesn't. She soldiers on and halfway through the book I realized I liked her. She is such a realistic character, while all of her flaws and habits, its really hard not to. Then the book throws in some shocking twists, as only a good sci-fi book can,and your wondering if what you think is going on is even possible. Sure enough, it turns out that it is :O) This was different, and takes you into the darker side of an addicts personality. It really is scary, both what she does to get it, what got her addicted to it, and the guilt that she is trying to bury.I enjoyed this book. It was nice to come out of my box and try something new. I wasn't disappointed in the least!!
