Kricket Hollowell is normally not one to wish upon stars; she believes they’re rarely in her favor. Well versed at dodging caseworkers from Chicago’s foster care system, the past few years on her own have made Kricket an expert at the art of survival and blending in. With her 18th birthday fast approaching, she dreams of the day when she can stop running and find what her heart needs most: a home.
Trey Allairis hates Earth and
doubts that anyone from his world can thrive here. What he’s learning
of Kricket and her existence away from her true home only confirms his
theory. But, when he and Kricket lie together under the stars of Ethar,
counting them all may be easier than letting her go.
Ensin’s secrets number the stars; he knows more about Kricket's gifts
than anyone and plans to possess her because of them. He also knows
she’s more valuable than any fire in the night sky. He’ll move the
heavens and align them all in order to make her his own.
When everything in their world can be broken, will Kricket rely upon love to save her under different stars?
My Thoughts on the Book
I received this book for
free at New York Comic Con of all places! Taking my son there had a
bonus for me too! When I heard Amy would be there I looked up her books
again and while I had not read any yet she was one my list so I was
excited to try a meet her. I am so happy I did and so happy I loved this
book. I don't usually read sci-fi but I do read YA, NA and Paranormal
to name a few genres. This fits perfectly into that group if you are all
concerned that sci-fi is not your thing. ( I actually like sci-fi a lot
but I tend to watch my sci-fi and not read it) but I digress, this is a
perfect coming of age meets hot alien meets powerful strong girl. There
is heart a humor and much more to come. On to the next book!
