Song of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy
Series: Scarabaeus #1
Published: April 27, 2010 by Harper Collins
Genre: Science Fiction

Trained since childhood in advanced biocyph seed technology by the all-powerful Crib empire, Edie’s mission is to terraform alien worlds while her masters bleed the outlawed Fringe populations dry. When renegade mercenaries kidnap Edie, she’s not entirely sure it’s a bad thing . . . until they leash her to a bodyguard, Finn—a former freedom fighter-turned-slave, beaten down but never broken. If Edie strays from Finn’s side, he dies. If she doesn’t cooperate, the pirates will kill them both.

But Edie’s abilities far surpass anything her enemies imagine. And now, with Finn as her only ally as the merciless Crib closes in, she’ll have to prove it or die on the site of her only failure . . . a world called Scarabaeus.

My Review

I really enjoyed this one! The world building was fantastic in this one. I loved the idea of the terraforming worlds and the control the Crib over all the Fringe planets. As great as the world building was, I still wanted more about the history of the Crib, the Reach Conflicts, and the BRATs program.

“Talas made her blood. The Crib made her skills. But it has not made her identity. That creation is left to her, and the future.”

Edie was a genuine and compassionate character and though maybe a bit naive, it was hard to dislike her. She continues to see the good in people even when they they don’t prove their worth. Sometimes the “programing” Edie was doing was a bit confusing. This might just be my lack of any prior knowledge in this field. Finn was a perfect dark and mysterious character. I constantly wanted more on his history and what he was thinking. He wants his freedom, but he also seems to be sucked into helping Edie.

4 stars – it was enjoyable
