    4.25 starsI hardly ever read Sci-Fi and I think I can count all my Sci-Fi reads on the fingers of one hand, which is why I didn’t really have high expectations when going into this book. But man, was I pleasantly surprised! Reading this story was so much fun!In this dual perspective novel, we follow Talia, a human princess, and Will, a half human/half mock starship captain, who forge an unlikely alliance after Talia is awoken from her cyosleep ...

    Received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review.I do love a good sci-fi every now and then so trust me when I saw this..Besides love a good sci-fi (or any kind of genre really) I do love a dual POV too. It just makes a book more interesting when there's a dual. Sometimes with multiple POVs one can get confused quite easily or you can get bored with just one POV. So I really like reading books with dual POVs - this book has it!Once I finished ...

    I loved a lot about this book. First, look at that stunning cover! The colors are so amazing, and just the whole layout of it looks like perfection. (Kinda sad here that I “only” got the e-book version of this, but a big thanks here to Blaze Publishing! This did not influence my rating of the book in any way, though.) Also I’m such a sucker for good space action and strong characters. The whole plot line was very unique and I loved how the ...

    Mini review:I received this e-arc via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This was a trainwreck. I was really looking forward to reading this. I generally enjoy sci-fi. I did not enjoy Will’s point of view at all. Talia was much better but that couldn’t save the book. I didn’t care for any of the characters except Talia. She was the only one that was tolerable. It was action packed and a fast read I’ll give it th...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Our Dark Stars is a book I've been eager for ever since I heard about the collaboration. Audrey Grey is one of my favorite authors, I've devoured every single one of her books. I am fairly new to Krystal Wade's writing but I picked up a book of hers before this one to familiarise myself and she's definitely amazing. With the culmin...

    I received this E-arc from Netgalley in return for my honest opinion-Actual rating: 4,5-This book was good. Not good in a way of: 'Yeah it was good, just good' but more like: 'This book was so good that I need to recover for a month or so.'The characters were really cool. I loved them. the only problem for me was that there wasn't really a lot of information about how all of them looked, their backstories and stuff like that. I would have loved t...

    I received a digital ARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Our Dark Stars was really a good fast-paced Sci-Fi! Obviously, it is not the book of the year but I enjoyed it anyway! We have spaaace, sassy characters, a bit of romance (even if it could have been developed and deepened better), action and plot twists! It has a conclusion (since it's a stand-alone) but if the authors want, they could write a sequel because there are...

    For Czech readers:Rozhodně ANO.I received this book through Netgalley in exchange of honest review. I've never encountered book by Audrey Grey or Krystal Wade before so I had no idea what to expect. I'll be honest - I was lured mostly by stunning cover of this book at first. I haven't read premise before starting this book so it was a big surprise for me. Oh yes, it was. This book is told by two POVs in two different times (at first). First Prin...

    Yes, this is another space book! I'm kinda really just crazy for space books right now. (Haha) This crazy space story is a page-turner. I always wanted to know what would happen next. The world building is my favorite part of this book, the writing just paints this world with starts and action scenes.Leo is my favorite characters. I enjoyed the story more whenever he was in the scenes. I don't know why he just lightings the story.This story is gr...

    I really enjoyed this book. In the beginning I was a little lost as to what was going on, but the alternating POV really kept me on my toes to continue reading on. As it progressed, it began getting really interesting. I liked the idea of the androids, or mocks as they're called in this book, and the idea of a human being transformed into one like a cyborg. The storyline was good, the character development was fantastic, and I was rooting for the...

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I first opened this book. There'd been a bunch of criticism about a YA aimed sci-fi novel with a cover like this one, people saying it was incredibly reminiscent of Their Fractured Light, third novel in the Starbound series by Amie Kaufman. I thought to myself, goodness, I loved Amie's books and I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about a knock off. And so it was a really good thing that this was, apart from thos...

    *thank you to Netgalley, Blaze Publishing and the author for an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review*3 stars.While over all I enjoyed this, there were parts that didnt interest me much. I liked the main character Talia and her junior mock Ailat (Talia spelt backwards which I thought was really cool!) But about half way through it started to get a bit boring. I wanted more of the story to have been set in before the 100 years passed. ...

    I absolutely loved this book! I love sci fi and I love cyborgs. I think it's almost when I read a book about cyborgs fighting for their rights or when space travelling is involved. But this book had so much more than what I expected! Yes it had cyborgs fighting for rights and yes it had space travel, but it also had human enslavement, a century old secret, and many more twists and turns! Talia Starchaser is an 18 year old princess who is engaged ...

    This book was intriguing right from the start. The chapters alternate between the two main characters, Will and Talia. I really enjoyed the first 10 chapters that went back and forth from Talia's past to the future with Will. It gave you the back story in a very interesting way. I liked both characters quite a bit right away. Will is a quick thinking thrill seeking half-mock. He often takes risks and his human side makes him emotional for a mock....

    Talia, a human princess, and Will, a half-human / half-mock starship captain are the main focus of this enthralling sci-fi adventure novel. It's full of energy, pace and futuristic plot points that will captivate any reader, whether you're a fan of sci-fi or not (I don't usually read sci-fi but I loved this).The descriptions of the characters and settings was vivid and cinematic and I could clearly picture what was happening. It's technically a s...

    I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for annhonest review. Idk what it is about science fiction but i did not enjoy rhis book very much. Maybe it is because i am more focused on details rather than the love story. When i hear about space and technology, i want to LIVE in that world. Not read a vague description of it

    Actual rating: 4.5 stars I'm a big fan of retellings and sci-fi so I was eager to get my hands on "Our Dark Stars" which has been pitched as Sleeping Beauty meets Firefly (one of my favorite TV series btw), and I'd say it's a pretty accurate description. This is one YA space adventure you won't want to put down, even after it's over!This novel features tons of action-packed scenes, villains you'll love to hate, and a motley crew of outcast mocks ...
