Goddness in The Machine by Lora Beth Johnson

Book Summary:
When Andra wakes up, she’s drowning.
Not only that, but she’s in a hot, dirty cave, it’s the year 3102, and everyone keeps calling her Goddess. When Andra went into a cryonic sleep for a trip across the galaxy, she expected to wake up in a hundred years, not a thousand. Worst of all, the rest of the colonists—including her family and friends—are dead. They died centuries ago, and for some reason, their descendants think Andra’s a deity. She knows she’s nothing special, but she’ll play along if it means she can figure out why she was left in stasis and how to get back to Earth.
Zhade, the exiled bastard prince of Eerensed, has other plans. Four years ago, the sleeping Goddess’s glass coffin disappeared from the palace, and Zhade devoted himself to finding it. Now he’s hoping the Goddess will be the key to taking his rightful place on the throne—if he can get her to play her part, that is. Because if his people realize she doesn’t actually have the power to save their dying planet, they’ll kill her.
With a vicious monarch on the throne and a city tearing apart at the seams, Zhade and Andra might never be able to unlock the mystery of her fate, let alone find a way to unseat the king, especially since Zhade hasn’t exactly been forthcoming with Andra. And a thousand years from home, is there any way of knowing that Earth is better than the planet she’s woken to?

My Review:

What happens when you wake up and thousands of years pass into the future?

Andra was supposed to wake up in a hundred years with her family and friends. Sadly she wakes up not knowing where she is or her family is at Suddenly everyone think she this goddess who can save the world. All Andra really cares about finding out what happen to everyone and where did she end up on.

Goddness in the Machine was such a good read. I thought it was quick read that sucks you in. The storyline was very interesting and the characters where likeable in it. I love how the ending leaves you off with more question and hopefully for a book two soon.

I did like Andra in the story and felt bad for her in the beginning. She wakes up feeling lost and alone. Only person she can seem to trust is Zhade. Zhade has his own little secrets about what’s going on. Hopefully Andra can find closure and answers on what really happen.

Looking for a new scifi read, then you might enjoy Goddness in the Machine.

Happy Reading!!!
