When Earth intercepts a message from a long-extinct alien race, it seems like the solution the planet has been waiting for. The Undying's advanced technology has the potential to undo environmental damage and turn lives around, and Gaia, their former home planet, is a treasure trove waiting to be uncovered.For Jules Addison and his fellow scholars, the discovery of an alien culture offers unprecedented opportunity for study... as long as scavengers like Amelia Radcliffe don't loot everything first. Mia and Jules' different reasons for smuggling themselves onto Gaia put them immediately at odds, but after escaping a dangerous confrontation with other scavvers, they form a fragile alliance.In order to penetrate the Undying temple and reach the tech and information hidden within, the two must decode the ancient race's secrets and survive their traps. But the more they learn about the Undying, the more their presence in the temple seems to be part of a grand design that could spell the end of the human race......

Ok, so I actually own the AU paperback, but I am too lazy to add a new edition, so there's that. I also received it one day AFTER the US release (though I've preordered it months before November), because the postal service is evil and it hates me. *sigh**
The thing is, I wanted to LOVE this book, I was so excited about it, so eager to meet this set of characters and join them in their adventure.. There is a "but" coming and punching me right in the face... I think I abandoned it like 3 times in ...more

I felt I gave this one a fair shot, despite everything from end-of-year burnout to post-vacation blues seeming to conspire against me. In the end, this was simply not the engaging tomb-raiding adventure on an alien planet that I was expecting, and mostly found myself bored and unable to see why this book couldn’t be half the length with the same plot content.
The story begins on Gaia, a far-flung planet discovered when a ...more

I found Unearthed difficult to read. I’m not sure why. I wonder if maybe it was simply just a mood read for me and I wasn’t in the mood for a sci-fi action book? Don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy Unearthed. I found that the writing styles of Megan Spooner and Amie Kaufman flawlessly flowed into one another and I truly co ...more
It took me soooooooooooooooooo long to get through this book. I was bored out of my mind the entire time. I never fully got into the story, but at some point I stopped falling asleep on myself (that's 100% legit -- the first three times I attempted to read even a few chapters, I fell asleep. Maybe I'm just overworked? I don't think that's entirely the case though). It's not a BAD book, just really boring in the first half.

Wow , what a journey . I loved this book because it reminded me of Indiana Jones in space with a little bit of Doctor who thrown in . The pace is very fast and things happen very quickly, both main characters are well developed and you cannot help but root for them since the beginning of the book. Throw in a world conspiracy and some alien tech and aliens themselves and you can get a grasp of what this book is about . For anyone who loves sci-fi and is a fan of Illuminae .
Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm ready.
