Review of ‘Sea of Stars’ by Amy A. Bartol



Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.


This is the second book in the Kricket trilogy. I loved the first book and I think that’s putting it lightly. This second book was just as good! It was enthralling and fast-paced. There were numerous parts that struck out to me, but my favorite part was how well Amy wrote the descriptions. It was like a movie playing in my head.

Another favorite aspect of mine was how there were several reoccurring characters from the first book that appeared in this one as well. We get to hear from Trey, Jax and Wayra. There were a few new characters as well that really added a lot of mystery to the story.

The majority of the book revolves around Kyon’s hunt for Kricket. His violence knows no bounds when it comes to apprehending her and he will do it by any means necessary…even if that means killing those who get in the way of him and his promised one.

Kricket never ceases to amaze me! She’s at the top of my list of favorite heroines. Regardless of how dire the circumstances may appear, she will go above and beyond to save the lives of the people she cares about. Her bravery is limitless and she proves it time and time again throughout the book.

I can go on for hours about how much I enjoyed Sea of Stars, but I don’t want to spoil anything for any of you. I highly recommend this trilogy if you are searching for a fantastically written fantasy novel that will have you at the edge of your seat and begging for more!

Thank you to the publisher for approving my request to read this book through Netgalley!!!
