Another great read Audrey grey is fast becoming one of my favoured authors, I wouldn't call myself a follower of Sci fi, however Audrey may yet prove me wrong. Excellent read, kept me entertained from the first to the final page
I can firmly say that I was not in the least disappointed! Throughout this series I could not tell which ... With already being a fan of Audrey Grey's writing before I started this book and loving Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles, I had high expectations for this. I can firmly say that I was not in the least disappointed! Throughout this series I could not tell which author wrote what. In collabs like that, I absolutely love that! Nothing throws off the flow of a book like two authors that aren't in sync. Granted this is my first time reading anything from Krystal Wade, I will definitely have to check out her other works. This very much was an easy flowed, action packed unique retelling of The Sleeping Beauty. There never really was a dull moment, not with the Odysseus crew around. Each character was fully developed and noteworthy in their own way. In my opinion that is what really makes a great book, when even the smaller characters have their own distinct personalities. The Sci-Fi elements really kept this fresh for me, there were several other elements but I don't want to give a single thing away. I will say some things were predictable, but it didn't take away from the story at all! With it being a retelling or as I like to call them now "reimagining", you're just going to have that. After reading this, I can safely say that I am officially now on a Sci-Fi kick and I'm not afraid to admit it!
Surprising blend of Star Wars and Sleeping Beauty That's a terrible comparison, but it's the best I could think of. I was very pleasantly surprised by the unique storyline and characters in Our Dark Stars. Set in the distant future, humans have found habitable planets to survive on and have built mocks (robots/droids) to help them, but the mocks start a war against their creators. Throw in a human princess and a "mock" salvage ship captain, plus a few criminally-inclined friends, and you've got an enjoyable, heartwarming, action adventure.
Surprisingly entertaining I was initially cautious purchasing this book as I was not sure if I would like it. Well I was really surprised that it was so good, interesting characters and world building. I had a suspicion as to who the Queen would turn out to be and the conclusion to this story leaves enough room to write another book regarding the rebellion.
Vivid story with lots of action ThisI'm not really into the sci-fi genre but I'd heard such good things about this book, and quite frankly, the cover is gorgeous and drew me in. I loved the vivid world the authors created as well as the range and uniqueness of the characters. It easily kept me engaged and the writing was well done. The action and tension constantly built throughout but it didn't quite peak as strongly as I'd hoped. It was also a bit predictable, but this didn't really bother me as the story and writing was strong. I'd love to see what happens next and hope for higher octane action and romance in the next book.
Pretty much all you can want from a space opera You've got a strong female lead: a princess. A small element of time travel. The scoundrel type ship captain and his crew. The AI overtaking humans trope. And it all gets tired up with a nice bow, but also with an open opportunity for a sequel (I hope)?
A fun YA summer read 3.5 stars. Not the most developed characters but overall the story was fast paced, entertaining, with a cute romance. Recommend for any YA sci-fi romance fans!
