Sea of Stars by Amy Bartol

IMG_7113Eighteen-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.

Omg omg OMG! This second book in the Kricket series was everything and as of right now it’s my favorite. For sure. Darken the Stars…can you live up to such high expectations? We’ll see.

Kricket. Trey. Ethar. Even Jax and Wayward. Ugh. I am just completely amazed at Amy and her creation of these characters and their entire world. And their development throughout the story is just fantastic. I’m kind of obsessed with Amy’s writing because even the villain is growing on me. That’s some good character development and writing, right? I think so. Because really…when you LIKE the villain? What does it say about you?


Sea of Stars is my current favorite because of the fact that I was permanently on the edge of my seat. It’s fast paced and edgy enough to make you not want to stop reading it. Not to mention the twists and turns entwined in the story line have me literally foaming at the mouth for more.

And that ending. I’m so glad I don’t have to wait for the third book.


Also, can you believe I’m reading ANOTHER series? I’m so excited to see what book three brings me. Starting right meow.
