HEA. Stand-alone. No cliffhangers. This is the NEW and UPDATED prequel novella to The Star Series. (Previously Published as The Star Queen)
Another Amazing Hit for this author!!!
I had read some of the other books before I read this one and LOVE this series. To me this book really brings the history of the Star Series together. It doesn't have as much action pack scenes we are use to in her other books, but this one completed the circle which had a gap in it on how the Kings came about. I love how she showed the love between the H&H. Because of the strife on their world and within the galaxy, they proved that no matter what they were going through with the wars true love survived. Great read that I recommend! Please keep writing and I'll keep buying. I LOVE THE MIND OF THIS AUTHOR! AMAZING!!!!
Solid stand alone story about life... and some of its hardest moments...
Having not read any of the books in this series yet (though the paperbacks are in my to be read stack) I can attest this story is a solid stand alone. Ample world building creates a sense of the Universe beyond the planet on which these events take place, while building Sienna's culture and post-attack environment.
When I sat down to read this, I was frustrated with the real world, and in the early chapters I wondered if I had chosen the wrong piece of escapism for my mood, but sometime after the halfway point the story began to spin in a way I had not been looking for.
Taj not only acknowledged her fears, she faced them, and Romjha B’kah revealed his fairytale future, ala the white picket fence, and suddenly a story about surviving and getting by grew into much more. Goals were no longer just about today, or the immediate future, and I loved this shift from fighting to stay afloat, to working to get to dry land. (Metaphorically speaking)
I was gifted with a copy of this story, and accepted in part because the series is in my tbr stack, and I wondered if not reading the prequel first would leave me feeling like I was missing you a few puzzle pieces later. For me, this stand alone novella is a great introduction to the Universe, some of the cultures, and gives me an idea of the damage it is recovering from, and the baggage characters may be emotionally carrying when I read the series.
