Gemme Renier’s life has been spent on the ship, Expedition. She is the Matchmaker, a position that allows her final say on the couplings that the computer has analyzed and determined would be appropriate genetic mates. All that changes when the Expedition encounters a comet storm. The twin Seers who have controlled the ship for over a hundred years must alter course and crash land on the frozen arctic Tundra 37. With her life’s work destroyed Gemme is placed on a team tasked with finding a fuel source to keep the Expedition running while they colonize the planet. Lieutenant Miles Brentwood commands the team, the very Lieutenant that the computer had paired her with before the crash. Their journey will reveal more than Gemme ever imagined.
Miles Brentwood is on a mission to save the passengers of the Expedition but the Seers have given him a second task. During their journey they acquired a mysterious orb, an orb that entices you to remember. The Seers have sensed a second orb on Tundra 37 and Miles must retrieve it and return it to the ship. Miles is drawn to Gemme from the moment he sees her and their journey reveals to him just how special this woman really is. The mysterious orb draws them in and they must struggle to free themselves from their memories. He returns to the Expedition with both missions accomplished but he senses the danger of the second orb. Will the Seers stop at nothing to become one with the orb?
Tundra 37 is interesting and the characters are engaging but I did find the flashbacks at times to be a distraction from the plot. There were also several inconsistencies in the storyline but all in all it was a good read.
