    1. I absolutely love this book, but I should. I wrote it. That's why I didn't rate it. But I hope that many others do read it and love it as much as I do.

    2. DNF at 19% so no rating from me. I just wasn't being drawn in to this and from other reviews I read it doesn't look like things change much later on either. I also skipped ahead to check the ending and have to say that it was less a cliffhanger and more like a guillotine dropping between one sentence and the next, that's how abrupt it was.I found this all so very shallow and very "Young Adult", by which I mean the characters all seem to be teenagers wrapped up in their own selfish needs and want [...]

    3. The idea was good: a teen girl with no family embarks on a journey with a bunch of other teens to settle and colonize a planet. The execution, however, left something to be desired. The first person present tense, which worked marvelously in The Hunger Games and Divergent, fell somehow flat here - possibly because there wasn't a lot of action going on besides the main character and friends traipsing around the planet's base for meals and dances. Everything about the novel had the same overall to [...]

    4. Sixteen year old Brett Bradbury's life is fairly average until one fateful night when she suddenly finds herself utterly alone in the world. Everyone she cares about has either died or abandoned her, and when a mysterious corporation offers her a chance to escape the foster care system and become part of something that could benefit humanity's future she accepts. Brett suddenly finds herself on a strange new planet with an expertise she never knew she had and finding fulfillment in her new-found [...]

    5. This is a nice futuristic tale that has Sci-Fi and romance included. The idea is quite interesting and who knows, maybe it will come to pass in a near future. The theme has been done before, like most fantasy tales, and like all the others this one also has it own twist. The first part is dedicated to establishing the characters on their new planet and their working teams. The second part is dedicated to Brett, the main character, and her romances with two young men. Verita is a new planet some [...]

    6. I received Verita and Fast-Tracked through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway Program and was very exited about both. Verita begins with the main character, Brett, suffering the unimaginable loss of both her parents, followed by the realization that the people she calls friends are not what they seem. So instead of staying at the orphanage till she turns 18, she is recruited by a government organization that is sending teens to a habitable planet called Verita in order to study and repopulate it.

    7. Verita by Tracy Rozzlynn is a mix of YA science fiction, fantasy and romance. Brett Bradbury is your typical 16 year old trying to fit in until she loses her parents to a tragic accident. Not having a family to take her in, she becomes a part of the foster care system. There a group of scientists recruit them to become a part of an experiment. They are cyrogenically frozen and trained in their destined fields for the future colonization of a life sustaining planet called Verita. Once Brett becom [...]

    8. Most 16 year olds are out for fun, grades, best friends, boys/girls and movies. Not Brett Bradbury. Brett, an orphan following her parents’ death in a plane crash, the un-friending by her best friend and the dumping by her boyfriend; has decided to take a huge life-altering step. She is going to Verita.Verita is a life-sustaining planet similar to Earth but virtually unknown. Brett and many others are going to be colonizing Verita and will be taught a skill during space travel. So – when Bre [...]

    9. --Full, non-spoiler review courtesy at Book & Movie Dimension a Blog--For a science fiction read Verita was quite an impressive novel.Brett Bradbury has the regular American life of not going without until the day her parents die. As only child she doesn't have any immediate family and when she finds that her family for most of her life have been living well above their means she doesn't have any real way to keep up payments to her old way of living considering she's a minor. So she has to g [...]

    10. Disclaimer: bought this Kindle version of this book.Brett has just lost both her parents in an accident. Without any other relatives, the 16 year old is dumped into foster care. One day, she is approached by a strange man who offers her a deal: to be part of a colony ship seeking out new worlds.You'd think this would be the start of a dystopia, but it's not. It's a tale about teens having to become adults on a new world, and it's refreshing in that it shows them more as capable people who just h [...]

    11. I received this book free of charge from a LibraryThing giveaway in exchange for my honest review.When I read the description of this book I was really excited to read it. And while I had a few problems with it, overall by the end of the book I was turning pages rapidly, anxiously waiting to see what would happen next. I thought it started out kind of slow, and I found it really hard to connect to the characters at first, but it definitely picked up about halfway through and I found out that I w [...]

    12. First, thank you to librarything for letting me win this from their member giveaways. I always welcome the chance for new books. Now then, to the review. Unfortunately, I found this book a little lacking in the editing department – in the sense that had this gone through one or two more passes and rewrites, it would have been much better than it turned out.Rozzlynn can write, and she can create a good plot, but I found her sensory language lacking, and quite a few cliches in terms of adjective [...]

    13. I won this book in a giveaway that was hosted by a book blog and I was so excited about it! Thanks again, Tracy Rozzlynn and SupaGurl Books. =)I found "Verita" to be an incredible mixture of adventure, romance, and science fiction. The main character, Brett, has lost everything-- her family, friends, and boyfriend. She's going through the motions and is just trying to get a grasp on her new, crappy life. When her life is basically at an all-time low, she is offered a very big and unique opportun [...]

    14. The premise had a lot of potential, but I was completely underwhelmed. This is essentially a high school drama filled with high school stereotypes wrapped in a thin veil of sci-fi.First I have to share this quote for its ridiculousness. The protagonist describes her hair: "it naturally falls into abundant, loose curls without getting frizzy." (emphasis mine) What planet does this author live on, because it's certainly not Earth. Curly hair just doesn't DO that.*The writing quality was pretty med [...]

    15. After being pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed “Fast Tracked” by this same author, I was anxious to read her other work. Fortunately, I also won “Verita” through the Library Thing Giveaway, and so I didn’t have to wait long to dive into a whole new world by this author. I was stunned by the hard emotional punch this story opened with. After Brett was literally ripped out of life as she knew it, she really found out who her friends were, or in this case weren’t. I was broken h [...]

    16. I won this book back a while ago in one of Librarythings giveaways. Unfortunately with time and delays I was unable to give my review for it till now. Let me just start by saying WOW. Normally Science Fiction is harder for me to enjoy as I'm really picky and have a certain way I like to read things. But Tracy has captivated me in the compelling world she has created for Brett and I can NOT wait for the next book. So much so I have been searching and trying to find out when it will come out. With [...]

    17. I found this book when browsing through the 99 cent books. The first few chapters interested me enough to buy it. I thought that I would at most be entertained for an evening.I was wrong.The book to me, really starts, when Brett arrives on the new planet. Having attempted to write something similar in genre at one point in my life, I know how difficult it is to really create a new world and everything on it. It's a different type of writing than just taking the reality we already know and then b [...]

    19. I cant believe how much I liked this story. I mean I wasn't expecting it to bad or anything but since I'm into fairytale creatures action and such I didn't expect to be pulled into this story. wrong. guess who hasn't eaten/slept/or left the couch since hitting chapter 5? me that's who and I'm not a fast reader.The characters were so refreshing! There's Brett who doesn't have the 'I'm to tough to feel.' *insert glare and witty comment here* thing going on but the she defiantly doesn't let anyone [...]

    20. I always start a book with low expectations, that way (especially with new authors or independent books) I don’t get disappointed, and sometimes I get a good surprise. “Verita” is one of those good surprises. It does have quite a few typos and editing errors though, which can be a bit of a distraction, they are not over abundant but they are still there. The first chapter is kind of all over the place and transitions without letting you know you’re changing time frames or location it’s [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this book! I won this book as a part of a Library Thing Giveaway, and I was not disappointed. It is a young adult story whose main character, Brett, loses her parents and becomes a part of foster care. Rather than being there until her 18th birthday, she chooses to be a part of a new world. She is frozen, and then woken up 100 years later on a new world, Verita. She is joined by hundreds of other teenagers, all of whom were given information about their occupation during their [...]

    22. This author did a great job writing this book. The story starts kind of slow but once it gets into first gear it’s a nonstop reader. There is romance interlaced into the science fiction, so if that’s not your cup of tea then this may not be the book for you. I loved the whole premise of the book, I enjoyed every moment of the book and look forward to the next book in the trilogy. The author truly did her research prior to writing this book and I thought she really detailed the different jobs [...]

    23. I don’t usually read Science Fiction that often I am more of a fantasy girl. The more I read of Science Fiction I am realizing I don’t really have any good reason for that because when it is a good written Sci-Fi with developed characters the genre is just as fun as any.Teen Brett does brood like most young adults but it does not last long. As soon she is on the new planet she is like a different person. She is treated like an adult and has knowledge that helps her to develop an adult life o [...]

    24. Verita is quite an interesting novel. I found myself completely drawn into the story and couldn't stop reading until I finished. This book has an interesting and new storyline than others I have recently read. The characters are easily likeable and fun to "listen" to.The thought of having a tragedy strike you down in life and being offered a chance to move on and do something better with your life is so tempting, especially to Brett after losing so much. Not only does she get to put the past beh [...]

    25. This is a very enjoyable YA book, that takes place in the future, in a new world. The book is about discovery and adventure. The teens have chosen to take part in this new world, and leave all they know behind. They are put into a cryogenic sleep and when they wake, they find they have learned professions while they have been transported to their new home. They make friends, work in their profession, learning new things about themselves, their world and others. The main character Brett learns ab [...]

    26. Tracy Rozzlynn’s writing style overall was easy to read. The book could have used a bit more polishing, but it was easy for me to forgive since I was sucked into the story. Brett starts her new life on a planet called Verita, having been trained as a biologist while in stasis during the 300-year journey. I shared her anticipation leading up to exploration of the new environment. The strange, unknown new world premise appeals to me. The author’s vivid imagery brought Verita to life. Romance a [...]

    27. I had Verita on my "to read" list and could not wait to get to it. I love the idea that one day maybe the human race will live on other planets like Earth. It tells the story of a girl who has lost everyone in her life one way or another. She decides to take an offer to help colonize and develop a planet that is similar enough to Earth that people can live on it. She makes new friends and has a new found love for her new career. She has a few dangerous run ins but she is a strong young woman who [...]

    29. Couldn’t put it down! It was so interesting learning about and visualizing this new planet and all the amazing things they had and would encounter. Wonderful detail in the animals and plant life found already!! The description of the feelings that they as teens (or adults really) would be going through was great! The way Brett, Ryan or any of the other fabulous characters, acted or reacted to different situations as a result of the loss or pain they had previously suffered was perfect! It made [...]

    30. Verita a great original sci-fi novel. I thought it was interesting that they were all kids but still adults at the same time. To get to the new planet they had to be frozen and that reminded me of Beth Revis' Across the Universe. I'm really glad to see that Brett was such a strong character despite what happened in her life before going to Verita. She's a team leader, she stands up for herself, and she does all she can to protect her friends.The meerkits were so adorable, especially when Brett f [...]
