Heart of Iron


Heart Of  Iron by Ashley Poston

“Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space with a sentient android called D09, Ana was saved by a fearsome space captain and the grizzled crew she now calls family. But D09—one of the last remaining illegal Metals—has been glitching, and Ana will stop at nothing to find a way to fix him.

Ana’s desperate effort to save D09 leads her on a quest to steal the coordinates to a lost ship that could offer all the answers. But at the last moment, a spoiled Ironblood boy beats Ana to her prize. He has his own reasons for taking the coordinates, and he doesn’t care what he’ll sacrifice to keep them.

When everything goes wrong, she and the Ironblood end up as fugitives on the run. Now their entire kingdom is after them—and the coordinates—and not everyone wants them captured alive.

What they find in a lost corner of the universe will change all their lives—and unearth dangerous secrets. But when a darkness from Ana’s past returns, she must face an impossible choice: does she protect a kingdom that wants her dead or save the Metal boy she loves?” – Cover description taken from Goodreads

I received Heart of Iron in my “Across The Galaxy” Owl Crate about two months back. On a NORMAL day I would not have bought this book for myself. I’m not really into sci-fi (unless I’m watching Star Wars lol) but Owl Crate boxes never disappoint so I did not skip the sci-fi box. I love the look of this book. I have an exclusive copy with purple stained pages and it is signed by the author. It’s really a beautiful book on my shelf. So here are my thoughts (because I DID read it):

Even though this was a sci-fi novel I was kind of excited to read it because it is a Anastasia retelling and I LOVE the story of Anastasia. To me this book seemed like Anastasia meets Star Wars meets Will Smith’s I Robot with some PG Game of Thrones thrown in. Some of it was hard for me to read…. Basically just the super technical science fiction details (like I said it just isn’t my thing). The story itself was very well written. I absolutely love the characters. I like how the book tells the story from the four main characters point of view. I actually really loved this story…. If it was a movie I would totally watch it. There is a HUGE twist/cliff hanger at the end. I actually NEED to know what happens, the end was that good. Unfortunately I probably will not be buying the sequel since I don’t enjoy reading sci-fi. I have some time to think about it. I will be reading the spoilers though so I know what happened!! over all this was a very good book though.
