Series: (Starglass #1)
I went into reading Starglass with lots of expectations - a kick ass heroine, tons of action, and suspense, but it ended being a book of mixed feeling. Starglass had some great scenes that shined but other fell flat. But definitely give this one a try and it wasn't my book for sure.
Starglass opens with a great beginning, Terra is living on Asherah, a space ship at it's the only thing she knows is home. Dealing with this life she only knows so much about with a grieving dad, Terra realizes she's the in middle of a secret rebellion. Terra goes through so much in Starglass, I was rooting for her. She had that unique wit that I saw beyond the pages, but when the action and suspense came rolling in I don't think Terra was a good in them. I couldn't see a connection with what was going to to Terra questioning life on the ship. The romance was good, there was a realness there and I could feel it but I wish it had more of a spark and a cohesiveness that could bring the whole book together.
The highlight of Starglass was piecing every little scene and seeing how it would come all together and I liked that about the book. Terra unravels haunting secrets and lies on the ship, I liked seeing that come together despite the fall of action and suspense. The other characters were great like Mara and Rachel and there's was a connection that I got. It may not be my type of book, but definitely give it a try!
