Book Review: Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

19504931

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.

Kyon 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?

Jan Review

Honestly, the world building and original ideas Amy came up with could easily put this book in either the sci-fi or fantasy genres. It was that well done. I not much for a romance book but this one was very well down, it had action, suspense, love, world building.  I was completely wrapped up in the story took me two days to complete it, it was that good.  I never read anything by this author but i am fan for sure of this series.  I love that the place they go is a complete opposite of earth so their new terms for things to learn, it all new terrain and you get to learn it all right along with the characters it very well done and i highly recommend you give this book a shot.
