    OK I have to admit when I flipped the book over and looked at the back I jumped Those eyes are creepy But they're probably meant to be so they definitely do their jobDO NOT MISS THIS BOOKIt doesn't matter if you're a fan of Inspirational fiction or not if you enjoy Dystopian OR Sci Fi YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOKYes faith is an intricate part of the story but it is woven in so seamlessly and without sounding preachy it's clearly just an intrinsic piece of the wholeJupiter Winds is the 4th full length published novel of CJ Darlington who when she didn't get the answer she wanted from traditional publishers decided to start her own successful publishing company along with her mother and sisterAnd all I can say is the traditional publishing agencies truly missed the boat this time  Jupiter Winds could so easily knock Divergent off it's tattooed pedestal  This is a book that has it ALL The government is taking merciless advantage people are starving or being killed left and right for no reason two teens are left alone to fend for themselves when their parents go missing and the coup de grâce most of the book takes place on another planetAndget this It's a true dystopian not like so many of these watered down almost dystopian novels that are getting their 15 minutes and then fading into obscurity It doesn't just encompass an entire planet it tells us about 2 And we don't get a uick sound bite either We get a good back story and than a little popping in here or there through the whole story on what's going on around the world It's GREATThere's no lack of techno sounding words or language progression in this story either It's in thereFrom cosmoships to bioskin The danger the excitement the knowing that something unthinkable could happen at any moment It's ALL in thereThere are surprises around every corner and no yawns anywhere And don't be lulled into complacency Just because you're getting close to the end does NOT mean there isn't another surprise coming your wayIt's a tough book to put down but if you have to I promise you'll be rushing back to it as uickly as you can and you'll get pulled right back into the story within the space of a sentenceDisclaimer I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review

    Rare as it is to find a Christian Sci Fi book and as much as I love this genre it deserves every one of the five stars I'm giving it Definitely worth the readand as far as I know it's still free on as an e book Check it out D

    A great holiday read A fast paced plot with lots of twists and turns an interesting dystopian world and lots of family love The world building was what I liked best and is done well This book held my attention throughout but did not particularly engage my emotions There is a Christian aspect to this plot but it is very low key I found the conversion weak and unbelievable I also could not believe that an elderly lady and a young girl would be the ones to track two dangerous people That aside this was well written and enjoyable

    I read this in just a few hours while on a plane It absolutely sucked me in and was a perfect distraction during a few flight delays The complexity and creativity of this book was incredible and something I was definitely not expecting I mean Jupiter? SO COOL Character wise the emotional motivation was perfection and totally believable Something that I didn't even realize until than halfway through is that there was NO romantic interest for the main character and the story STILL held my interest That never happens in a YA dystopia and I thought it was awesome Such a nice change from the normDefinitely recommend this book

    This is a story about two sisters who have lost their parents and are just trying to survive in a dystopian world I really enjoyed the premise of this book and the fact that it was supposed to be a Christian dystopiansci fi I enjoyed the overall plot of the story but the Christian conversion is what fell flat for me I was really enjoying how Scripture was something that Grey remembered her mom uoting to her and her sister Rin I really enjoyed the space elements to this story and the idea that humans could inhabit Jupiter As I was reading this I was thinking through out most of the book that it would be a solid 4 star read for me until the end I was hoping that there would be a big conversion for Grey but in the end it just didn't hold up to the 4 star rating I thought I would give this story so I gave it a 3 star I will be willing to continue on with this series and see if the Christian elements are focused on in the later book I really enjoyed buddy reading this with Rebekah

    this wasn't a loud THIS IS SO AMAZING I'M GOING TO DIE book it was of a wow this is a really neat story kinda book Content Romance brief mention of 'love struck' couple no details Language na Violence use of dangerous high tech weapons pointing guns at people lots and lots of fighting and the aftermath assault one character was marred to death by a tiger not terribly descriptive BloodGore many details of injuries blood being unconciouspassing out and details of people dyingi really enjoyed this CJ is a super talented writer and she knows how to hook readers ; I found myself wanting some romance in the book maybe between Grey and a guy Just to ease the tension up and help hook me i loved the strong sibling relationship between Rin and Grey we don't get to see much of that in other books Overall the most content in Jupiter Winds is the violence I think the details were just a little too much for CJ to be a Christian author While the violence didn't bother me it may you if you're a sensitivecautious readerI reccomend for ages 14 for the content listed aboveSoli Deo Gloria

    Well that was a wild ride Wow This is not what I usually read but I ended up liking it much than I expected to It kept my interest and was very fast paced which I loved At first the characters didn’t really mean much to me but by the ending they had a lot meaningThere were soo many twist and turns which I LOVEDIt kept me on the edge of my seat and invested in the story And I have to say the author’s imagination is amazing I love family stories I LOVE them And this one was pretty epic I especially loved the sister relationship between Grey and Rin I also loved Grey remembering scriptures her mother had read to her when she was younger and the faith that Rin held onto The hope throughout was wonderful I know it’s not something you normally find in this genre so that’s another thing I found really greatI actually got teared up towards the end which I was not expecting to There was just one scene that really touched me Some of it was kind of violent at times but not as much as you might expect and for this genre it was actually mild so I appreciated that I just thought I would throw it out there in case you mind that If you like dystopiasci fi action packed books you should definitely check this one out It’s pretty awesome I give it 35 stars
