Unearthed - Review

Unearthed by Rebecca Bloomer
Book Blurb
If you're going to colonise a planet, you'd better be willing to fight for it.

Within Anphobos, there grows a new race. The first generation of humans never to set foot on Earth. They are pale skinned, large eyed and worship no god but science. They possess technological skills and processes Earth has refused to acknowledge. Until now...

"We are Martian. Your religion isn't ours. Our god is Mars. Our religion is science. Anything we do in the service of Mars, is good. Make no mistake, Earth girl, we are both right and good."

Fresh off Earth, Jodi Scarfield doesn't really care for Mars or its politics. Still, accusations of treason will get a girl's attention...
My Review
I received a copy of this book from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review. Jodi is moving to a new place and it is an unusual one. She along with her mother are going to Mars to join her father. Mars has some humans who were born there as it was colonized years ago. Jodi tries to fit in but has found herself in the middle of a political fight. One she isn't sure about but has found she is right in the middle of it.

Jodi is a smart girl after all she can hack just about any computer. This comes in real handy for her and her mother when they get to Mars. She has been part of some trouble back on Earth but here she is just trying to find her place in a whole new world to her. She also has to learn to live with her dad again after not seeing him in so long. I liked her character she does stand out.

This is short quick read. I did like it but wish it had been longer. I think it would have been so much better if it had been. The plot is great but it kinda fell flat. I could see it being so much more. It is still enjoyable just need more. The last little bit of the book felt rushed and sometimes I did get confused as what was happening. I think if you want a quick sci fi read you should try this one. It is a good read just could have been better!
