Today I'm here to tell you about TEMPER by Beck Nicholas, Book 2 in the Lifer Series. I had the honour of reading an advanced copy of this book. Trust me - you will not be disappointed!
It has been a great start to 2016 for me! I have read debuts that made my heart race, and got my hands on some highly anticipated sequels that made my mind explode. Seriously.
Even better than its predecessor LIFER , TEMPER had me chasing after truths and hoping for retribution. In book one, LIFER, I was consumed by the life of Asher, and unraveling the mystery of the naked man, in alternating POV chapters. I loved Megs, and had this burning excitement for Davyd, in ways I can't discuss on this blog.
But, in book two, TEMPER, I found myself back in the minds of Asher and Samuai, I found myself hating their counterparts, Megs and Davyd, right from the beginning, wishing they would disappear so Asher and Samuai could get their romance on. But as the story progressed I felt sorry for Megs and started to like Davyd, reminding me of the charm he had in LIFER. And though heart-wrenching, I'm glad Asher got an important truth at the end. Sorry - no SPOILERS!!!!
The only thing I'm not looking forward to is waiting a year for the next book. I secretly hope Asher and Davyd break through their stubbornness and find a connection. There are so many questions I have about so many things! Don't waste time, get your copy of both books today. Then you can suffer like me, waiting for book three...

ABOUT BOOK 1: LIFER
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.
