Temper by Beck Nicholas

Hi, and welcome to my stop on the tour!! Thanks for stopping in today! You will find info on the book, the author, Beck Nicholas, a giveaway, and of course, My Thoughts (cause I love to share!!). Oh, and make sure you check out other stops on the tour for author
interviews, guest posts, and lots more fun!

My Thoughts: 

The Cover: While I like the silhouettes, I would not have chosen to read these books based on the covers alone. They are definitely different and pretty but it was really the synopsis that made me want to read this series.

The Plot: Temper is an amazing story. Having read and really enjoyed Lifer, I expected that Temper would be just as awesome. I must admit, I felt it dragged a bit at the beginning, but I kept on, knowing it would pick up. I was not disappointed. It did and flowed very nicely throughout the rest of the brilliant and engaging plot.

The Characters: Most of the characters in Temper had been introduced in Lifer. Some had less of a part to play this time around while some had more. While I liked Asher and Samuai well enough as the main character, I missed Lady a bit more in Temper. She always had some good "game" happening. I was glad to see a little more of Kailh as she was definitely one of my favorite characters. While I absolutely hated David and Mags during Lifer(although I am not sure why Mags. She had no knowledge of Asher.) I began to like her more in Temper. While I thought Asher showed more strength of character this book, I felt Mags showed a little bit of her softer side, was a little more unsure of herself and was a bit of a bitch to Asher.
Is it Worth Reading?: Oh definitely, while I really enjoyed Lifer, Temper kept me reading late into the night, just wondering what happened next. I love the world our talented author has created and am very sad that we have to wait to find out what happens to Asher, Samuai, and the others. I highly recommend this series to readers of sci-fi, drama and romance and give it 4 out of 5 crossbows.

Free from the spaceship and reunited with Samuai, Asher should be happy. But thoughts of her dead family weigh heavily on her mind.

Things worsen when temper problems in camp lead to a murder. When Asher volunteers to get the drug need to calm people down, tension ignites.

Loyalties are questioned.

Jealousy rears its head. Sparks fly.

And when rumor of a second ship hits close to home, all bets are off.

Have the aliens returned? Is this the end of everything Asher has ever known?


The Bourne Identity meets Under the Never Sky in this intergalactic tale of love and deception from debut novelist Beck Nicholas.

Asher is a Lifer, a slave aboard the spaceship Pelican. A member of the lowest rung of society, she must serve the ship’s Officials and Astronauts as punishment for her grandparents' crimes back on Earth. The one thing that made life bearable was her illicit relationship with Samuai, a Fishie boy, but he died alongside her brother in a freak training accident.

Still grieving for the loss of her loved ones, Asher is summoned to the upper levels to wait on Lady, the head Official’s wife and Samuai’s mother. It is the perfect opportunity to gather intel for the Lifer’s brewing rebellion. There’s just one problem—the last girl who went to the upper levels never came back.

On the other side of the universe, an alien attack has left Earth in shambles and a group called The Company has taken control. Blank wakes up in a pond completely naked and with no memory, not even his real name. So when a hot girl named Megs invites him to a black-market gaming warehouse where winning means information, he doesn’t think twice about playing.

But sometimes the past is better left buried. As Asher and Blank’s worlds collide, the truth comes out—everyone has been lied to...

I always wanted to write.  I’ve worked as a lab assistant, a pizza delivery driver and a high school teacher but I always pursued my first dream of creating stories. Now, I live with my family near Adelaide, halfway between the city and the sea, and am lucky to spend my days (and nights) writing young adult fiction.
