Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.
Now she’s awakened a nightmare.
During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she’s delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.
As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn’t at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.
While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity’s greatest and final hope . . .
Paolini hits the mark!
Fans of Eragon, rejoice! For Paolini is back again, and this time with a science fiction like no other. To Sleep In a Sea Of Stars is a space odyssey that proves itself in terms of all the categories.
To begin with the narrative style, it is subtle yet easy to grasp. It doesn’t matter whether you’re acquainted with Paolini’s writing, he won’t make your experience stutter.
The world building is what matters the most to me when it comes to scifi. And as I have stated before, it outdid itself in terms of everything. Whether it’s the locations, or the descriptions, it is raw and starkly imaginative.
Moving on the the characters, I adored Kira. She is definitely the kind of protagonist I would love to see more of. I find it hard to continue with a story this huge unless I like the main character, so this bit was important to me.
All in all, I would say that it wasn’t hard at all to binge through the chapters of this mammoth of a book. You won’t need patience if you’re really into scifi and this one is hard core at that, so you won’t be disappointed. Take all my stars!
