Review: "Sea of Stars" (Kricket #2) by Amy A. Bartol







Sea of Stars (Kricket, #2)
Sea of Stars by Amy A. Bartol
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

REVIEW

An action packed sequel to one of the best sci-fi I've ever read! Should I cooment the cover? Or how Cricket is one of my most favorite heroines?

Sea of Stars follows right after Kricket and Trey find refuge on the military part of Ethar. With Kyon on their tow and an unavoidable war, the pair and their friends will not stop to rest. I felt the whole story like a race match. But between witty dialogues and action scenes, there was swoony romance. I believe that Trey is the only fiction hero I've read who retains his humor, his love and faith for the heroine even under the most diring circumstances!

I can't wait for book 3 but if you get the chance, make sure to also 'read' the book as an audiobook!

The Divided - A Science Fiction Romance short story, which is included in the Take Me To Your Reader: An Otherworld Anthology. 

I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my “writing uniform” consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed.
