The author sent me an ARC of this book (epub format) in exchange for an honest review.
My rating: ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
True love is hard. And a doomed relationship with epic trust issues and shady secrets? Even harder.
For Sloane Masterson, her forbidden love with Hayden Lancaster has been a series of highs and lows that is overly complicated by those annoying interstellar dating laws.
But once Sloane discovers a shocking family secret, she won’t let those lame rules get in her way—she’s on a mission to win back her hybrid!
Too bad convincing her stubborn ex that they belong together isn’t Sloane’s only problem…
After receiving creeptastic blackmail messages, Sloane’s life becomes a real-life horror movie. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Hayden slimes her with smelly ectoplasm and freaky mutants start tracking her every move. Insert one more major disaster…the unexpected arrival of Sector Thirteen.
If she hopes to survive all the crazy with Hayden at her side, Sloane needs to expose the blackmailer and get that potent residue off her skin—fast. Because with Sector Thirteen’s monsters hunting her, Sloane’s not going down without a fight, even if that means trusting the one boy who broke her heart.
*This series is intended for upper-YA readers, has lots of steamy romance and campy humor, and is not considered hardcore science fiction.
|Genre(s):||Young Adult, Science Fiction|
|Series:||Starlight Saga, #2|
My locker is my own personal space during a busy day at school. Plastered on the walls are a dry erase board, a small mirror, and photos from last Halloween with Viola and me in our zombie costumes taped to the door. Lowering my sunglasses, I check my teeth for lipstick stains, in the mirror, rubbing one finger over a red smudge on my front tooth. As I lean back, a black envelope flutters out of the locker, and I barely manage to catch it before it hits the ground.
This book reunites the readers with Sloane and Hayden, freshly separated – and thanks to strange events – hopefully not for long.
With Under Sunless Skies, Sherry Soule has once again created a thrilling young adult science fiction story. It is a compelling read, drawing you in as you learn more about the main characters and their dilemmas. Sherry Soule paints a clear picture of Sloane and Hayden’s mindsets while the story evolves. I was drawn close to Sloane – an invisible friend and ally. Sloane and Hayden are masterly elaborated; the other characters are of sufficient depth, also believable with their flaws and virtues. The story has a wonderful flow; it was easy to get hooked.
This is a book for you if you like the young adult genre with steamy romance and a good measure of non-dominant science fiction, believable and often stubborn characters, and a sense for justice.
The remarkable second book in the Starlight Saga trilogy!
