      My heart is now a war-torn wastelandYOND THE RED was a gripping sci-fi read that takes you on a treacherous journey across the shifting landscape with the alien queen Kora and the half-breed human Eros. A rich tapestry of secrets, lies, treachery, rebellion, politics, all threaded with cool tech and a hot forbidden love story. You'll never want to leave the red desert of Safara. Brace yourself for a fast paced story and a heart breaking ending.

      This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea's Bookshelf. I am really unsure of how I felt about Beyond the Red. I guess I did like it to some extent, but there were a lot of things that bothered me and I wasn't a huge fan of them. To start it off, I thought this was going to be an EPIC SCI-FI book. I mean it's on another planet and it has ALIENS, so it had to be sci-fi. Yes, I thought it had an epic vibe, but more on the EPIC FANTASY side. Yes, you read that right. Maybe it was just me, but Be [...]

      2.5 stars. A mixed bag full of violence and forbidden romance, set in a great desert alien atmosphere.Ever read a book that leaves you feeling uninspired? Beyond the Red has a lot of elements that I like. The alien desert is atmospheric, the violence is on point, and the plot, despite being at times predictable, kept me pretty interested. Kora was a strong, capable ruler and Eros waswell, he was Eros; an angsty, half-alien teen with a mess of conflicting hormones (seriously, is he ever not check [...]

      HOLY CRAP, THIS WAS RAD. Reasons this book was just two thumbs up:- non-stop action, from page 1- awesome awesome (note the two "awesomes") characters that you could easily connect to and love. - deals with down-to-earth topics (even though it's in another planet, heh) like segregation, homosexuality, racism. *deals with them quite nicely too.- hot alien princess. - scorching hot romance. Like, the kind that sizzles. - ENDING THAT MADE ME DEMAND MORE. But I'm too nice to demand stuff so I'll jus [...]

    7. Justine on said:

      The summary for this book calls it "a story of betrayal, love, and loss," and I was definitely feeling some of those things by the end, but probably not for all the reasons the publisher hoped.I won't belabour what many of the other reviewers have said about this one. This book has some good things going for it, which is what seems to have made all of us read it fairly quickly. In fact, this book was a pretty solid 3 star read for me up until the end. Normally I am also willing to cut a debut au [...]

      a brilliant, addicting scifi! I couldn't put it down!!

    9. Inge on said:

      Beyond the Red had a really rich world, awesome characters which were never 100% black or white, a romance that sparked off the pages, and a fun and riveting story-line.

    10. Sarah on said:

      I've been really struggling to write this review because I had such high hopes for Beyond the Red and it just didn't live up to my expectations. I really liked the arid desert setting and I actually quite liked both of the main characters when they were apart but the second the two were thrown together things went downhill quickly and unfortunately that happens very early on in the story. What I wanted was more world building, I wanted to know more about the nomadic life the humans lived and I w [...]

      I was fortunate enough to receive an eARC of Beyond the Red in exchange for an honest review.This holiday season, I was on such a sci-fi kick after seeing the new Star Wars movie. I wanted more action, diversity, and heroics in my next read--and Beyond the Red did not disappoint in any of those departments!! Oh, and there's much more romance in this book than in Star Wars, which suited me as well :) I love a good love story, even in my sci-fi. So if that's your thing too, you've got to pick up t [...]

      2.5 stars. This book is a hot mess. It does have a gorgeous cover though.

      ***I received the ARC eBook from the publisher through Sunday Street Team and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review***Amazingly addicting with non-stop action and intrigue, I couldn’t help but read it from start to finish in one sitting and every second was spent on the edge of my seat as the breath was stolen from my lungs, heart ripped out then put back together before the cycle repeated.Right at the beginning both main characters Eros and Kora had been dealt a tough hand and found them [...]

      I tore through this sweeping sci fi adventure! It's got beautiful, harsh desert landscapes, hard people making hard choices, court politics and dangerous conspiracies, and heartbreaking romance. The alien world is well-drawn and fascinating, and the author's descriptions of the desert will make you feel parched just reading along, and I was cheering for the main characters to find a way to fight and survive even when it seemed impossible.Most of all, I very much appreciate that Ava Jae is clearl [...]

      *ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review*5. Ridiculous. Glorious. Stars.I can't believe this book has been sitting silently on my shelf. Its amazingness should've created a hole on my bookshelf, at least. Normally sci-fi leaves me confused and struggling but this was not the case and I can't grovel enough to the reading gods. It was easy to follow and it's now one of the best debut novels I've read. It was incredibly addicting. As soon as I opened this cover, real life faded away [...]

    16. Dahlia on said:

      This was really fun, and the characters and world have totally stuck with me since finishing. I'm not usually a Sci-Fi person at *all* but I'm thinking this is a great gateway back for other Contemp people trying to dip their toes into genre.

      This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for a honest reviewMY THOUGHTS"Aliens" is a code word to me. If I see the word "aliens" in a synopsis, I'm going to want to read it. This book did not disappoint me! I thought this was a fantastic sci-fi!Kora is queen of an alien territory, the first female ruler of her territory in awhile. Many of her people are rioting, seeing as unfit to rule, demanding her brother to be on her throne. But h [...]

    18. Colleen Houck on said:

      I really loved the world building in this one. It skews a bit more adult than YA but I enjoyed it just the same. Eros is a realistic, very likable character and Kora is so cool. I'd love to learn more about the elaborate tattooing. Can't wait to get the next book!

      Well that was brilliant minus the romance (which I ignored) because the world was just intense! I enjoyed it immensely.Full review TK

So excited for release day + Twitter launch party!(Thanks to Sky Pony Press for the eARC via Edelweiss, and thanks Ava for the emotional turmoil.)In one line: a sci-fi read that quickly turned from enjoyable to thrilling, with amazing plot twists and intricate characterisation.To be honest, Beyond the Red was one of my first sci-fi r [...]

    22. Valerie on said:

      I went into Beyond the Red expecting science fiction, similar to Red Rising. Unfortunately, what I got was a hell more romance than I expected. Like what. This is not the book for me! No no no no!Sorry about that. But I don't want to write it off completely! Beyond the Red started out strong, with an opening of Eros being kidnapped, to rushing back and defending his family, and later to the reveal of his lineage, half-Sepharon half-human. Yet, after his capture, everyone sort of went downhill fo [...]

      *I received an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Beyond the Red starts off with a bang and continues with a quick pace and many blows to the feels. I instantly knew the book was going to go well for me. I was able to connect to the characters pretty easily and get into the story. The world pulled me in and kept me intrigued. I could see the potential in the romance early on, which is always a great thing for me since I love romance. All in all, this book gave a very strong [...]

      Read my full review on my blog! omgbooksandmorebooks. I received an eARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This book is magical. It has all the elements that I loved in a stand alone novel. To make it better, Beyond the Red is sci fi. The turning point of the novel caught me by surprised. The ending, I have never read an ending like that before and I have to say I'm in love with this book. The ending is the perfect redemption but it is heart breaking.Kora is the queen of one of th [...]

      I did not expect to love this book so much.My heart is in my throat right now. That story, the plots, the twists, the world, the characters, and that ending, left me breathless and wanting for more. Ava Jae does a wonderful job with her debut novel and I wish for you all to read it now. It's so good and so incredibly intriguing and full of magic. Her writing was enchanting to read and so easy to get into the story. The characters were all so diverse and different, I felt so happy to read about t [...]

    26. Tara Sim on said:

      If you want a scifi adventure with fantastic worldbuilding and characterization, this is the book for you. I loved all the little details that went into this almost Star Wars-esque world, especially the Sephari language that made the culture that much more believable. I kept holding my breath to see if Kora and Eros would get out of all the predicaments they find themselves in, and of course, the romantic tension between them was--dare I say it?--out of this world. I can't wait to read more of J [...]

      This book was a mix of a lot of things I liked and disliked, so here it goes!THINGS I LIKED:- The writing :D While some of the dialog felt a little off to me, I loved the descriptions. I could see this world vividly in my mind.- THE WORLDBUILDING. Seriously, this planet was very fascinating, and everything from the culture and architecture to the language and names were just delicious. (Bravo!!)- Eros: I enjoyed his character overall, especially at the beginning. I admired his strength and resil [...]

      I didn't know much about this book when I found I could get it from Edelweiss. I follow the author on Twitter, and some of the other book bloggers I know said it was a good read. So I took it on faith that this would be entertaining. Well, I need to listen to these guys more often, because once I started this book, I could not put it down! It was engrossing, exciting, and just a wee bit erotic! I binge-read this, completing it on a lazy Sunday.The story centers around Eros a half Human, half Sep [...]
