    2.5“I think you’ll look back and regret letting go of the person you really loved.” Renny reached out, covering her hand with his. “The one who was there for so long you stopped noticing his shine.”•I've been waiting for Starfall since I read the lovely Starflight this summer, and I was so sure I would love it I wasn't actually worried it could end up in disappointment. The possibility didn't so much as cross my mind. And instead, I f...

    THIS MAKES ME SO SAD. I absolutely loved Starflight, but this sequel was nowhere near the same kind of story. All of the characters I loved in the first book were reduced to bland supporting characters who barely resembled themselves. The first book had awesome action scenes, a huge universe, multiple creative threats, a fast-paced and engaging plot, and a relationship that actually worked. This story had none of that.And really did love Kane and...

    “Cassia had a feeling Kane might not follow her instructions to the letter, but she never expected him to come barreling into the docking lot with Arabelle hoisted over one shoulder, shielding his head with his free arm and yelling like his pants were on fire. Behind him, Doran and Solara ran through the open doorway, each armed with a stolen pulse pistol and firing indiscriminately at someone out of view.So much for smooth negotiating.” Whoo...

    DNF at 50% ♣Remember I read Starflight a few days and loved it immediately. I loved the space-adventure and fun and most importantly the characters. Especially the side-characters; Cassia and Kane. ♣I was so glad when I heard the next book will be about them as main-characters. Cassie and Kane had so much chemistry together it was perfect and the angst! Don't even get me started on how much they oozed tension. I couldn't wait to see them upgr...

    Moving on in the Starflight universe but with Cassia and Kane as viewpoint characters rather than Doran and Solara.Cassia is a princess on the run from an arranged marriage to a vile neighboring kingdom. Kane is her loyal friend but kept at a distance because Cassia wouldn't be able to marry him. In Starfall, Cassia returns home and encounters plots from both her evil fiance as well as more space-pirates and a simmering rebellion against the mona...

    “The truth hurt more than lies.” I've been so impressed with Melissa Landers' books in the past, with Starflight being my favourite, but this book was nothing close to her best. The characters weren't as good, the romance was annoying, and the plot had great potential, but unfortunately didn't deliver. Starflight was my favourite book for the two main characters, and the action packed plot. I absolutely loved Doran and Solara. Their romance, ...

    In my life I have read several bad second books, but nothing like this.If I had to describe it I would call it a middle grade book with some strange sexual innuendo.Disappointment doesn't ever start to cover how I felt toward this book.There was nothing that worked for it, not a single thing and I don't know why.I gave 4 stars to the first book: it had great characters who had a great dynamic between them and a fantastic sense of humor.It was one...

    Not quite 3 stars, Starfall is an OK read, but not great. It is a disappointment compared to the first book, Starflight, which was seriously entertaining.The plotting here was less than meticulous, and the cliche language which added to the campy entertainment in Starflight just fell flat in this one. There were parts of the book that were fun and exciting, but it didn't work as a whole, and the story felt uneven.I listened to the audiobook versi...

    Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*I had truly enjoyed "Starflight", which had included too much banter, funny moments and space pirates! And of course I jumped into the chance to read the companion novel! The story of the escaped princess and her best friend and how truly they both wanted to love each other but also couldn't escape their duties,was a hit to my sci-fi heart.Cassia and Kane are such a funny pair. Always fighting over the l...

    Gosh, that was disappointing. This second installment is a companion to Starflight, and it is a huge step down from the light and entertaining first book.This companion follows two other members of the Banshee spaceship crew, Cassia and Kane. After being captured, Cassia is thrust into position as queen and must make hard choices and decide who to trust.Sadly, I just didn’t care. I didn’t care about these characters, I didn’t care about Cas...

    Sometimes I have problems with companion books, since I get easily attached to the characters that we initially meet, but that doesn't seem to be the case for Starfall! This book was easy to ease into and just as loved as the first book. I really loved Cassia and Kane even though throughout most of the book I wanted to bang their heads together;) A great read!

    Cassia was annoying and very hypocritical. I still enjoyed parts of this book but it was so much harder when the MC was so frustrating and silly.

    Having seen a lot of early reviews mentioning how much of a disappointment the companion novel to STARFLIGHT was, I have to say : STARFALL was not as awful as I expected it to be. But maybe it helped that my expectations were so low.I didn't love the conflict or being in Cassia's head, though I did very much enjoy Kane's POV and basically everything about his character, but neither did I hate everything, either. The read was fast but lacking in t...

    [NOTE: I first published this at Speculative Chic.]I read four Melissa Landers novels in 2017, but this was my favourite. Book 2 in the Starflight duology, Starfall focuses on Cassia and Kane this time, though of course Solara and Doran are around. After years on the run, Cassia has been apprehended and dragged back to her home planet. Now the queen, she may lose the planet to war unless she can stop an uprising. Meanwhile, Kane's mother is ill a...

    I would have enjoyed this more if the 2 main characters weren't so annoying.

    For most part, this book was great! I was enjoying the hell out of it and thinking 'I just found my new otp!' But then something happened in the last quarter of this booksomething so unnecessary, pointless and downright ridiculousand that something went on for so ******* long I was likeand it just threw all the thrill and excitement right out of the windowI still enjoyed Cassy and Kane though. I loved them in the first book, and even more in this...

    Well well well. Another book by Melissa Landers that I love. Is this a coincidence? Hell no! She is an amazing writer and I'm just so pleased at how well she's writing the Starflight Duology. She has clearly grounded the series in hilarity, family and political schemes and I'm just pleased as tits to read it.
