What if you knew the exact date and time the world will end, what would you do? Sam Tucker was faced with that dilemma when he began getting visions of the Earth’s demise. Luckily for him, he was able to save his family and as many people as he could before the tragic event occurred, and he did so with the help of unknown visitors. With Earth now destroyed, Sam, his family and thousands of other lucky survivors must live the rest of their lives on a faraway planet in a Dome that simulates life on Earth. But Sam’s mind can’t seem to rest as a few questions arise. Why did the aliens save them? How did they know about Earth’s sure fate? And exactly what are they hiding?

Emma Tucker begged for an escape from her boring life but never in a million years did she think it would come at the destruction of Earth. Living on a new planet and finding it difficult to get rid of her rebellious habits, Emma finds herself making friends with a member of the alien race and it soon develops into an unexplainable love; a love that is more dangerous than she could ever imagine. While her father is searching for his own truths, she has no idea that she is stumbling on a truth of her own.

Told from the point of view of both Sam and Emma, author Nova Sparks takes readers on a journey to discover love, fate, faith, truth and the mystery of the DOME!

Review:

I bet you’re wondering: why am I reviewing a sci-fi title? I read about romance and I love sci-fi, I’m a big fan of Star , Battlestar Gallactica and other series. Nova Sparks has a very interesting approach to romance when writing sci-fi.

This book is told by the perspective of Sam and his teenager daughter Emma. Sounds weird, doesn’t it? Well, it’s not! They complete each other’s POVs and nowhere in the book you’ll get lost or feel like skipping pages. I have to tell you I read this book in about 4 hours, I could stop reading! The DOME, I dare to say, is one of the best sci-fi books around this year.

Now of course I have to critique the romance side of this novel. This book has a deep romance line that is very important to the development of the characters and the plot, therefore it has to describe love. I wouldn’t take the love scenes out of this book (not because I love romances) because it connects the story in so many levels! I won’t write any spoilers, but I believe we’ll be watching the results of those actions SOON.  I have to agree though that they could’ve been better worked on. Think about it!

There’s nothing that caught my attention to the negative side, apart from a few errors that can be fixed with a better editing. The DOME is a rich and compelling story with very strong elements from movies, and an amazing plot. I could picture it all in my head like a tv series or a movie while reading it. Amazing, I was hung up! It’s sci-fi, romance and  fantasy all in one – I can barely wait to read the next two books! My dear reader, you can’t miss this one!
