Mini Review: Under Different Stars (Kricket #1) by Amy A. Bartol

Under Different Stars (Kricket, #1)

All she wants is a home, but can she find one…UNDER DIFFERENT STARS

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?

This book is pure gold. Everything about it. The writing is insanely good. To be honest, I'm in awe of the author's talent. The storyline was so intricate but enthralling at the same time. The world that the author created is just I love the way the story let it all unravel too. Instead of boring me with chapters of information and history about this new world, Bartol gradually revealed all of that information within the dialogue. It was just so entertaining.

It's action-packed, sweet, intense, and so funny. I laughed out loud too many times to count. It's a sweet romance that doesn't end on a cliffhanger. There is probably going to be some bumps in the road in book 2 though. No. Definitely.

This is probably my favorite read of the year. It's sitting right beside Heather Lyon's Fate series. They are both so good. I know some people are skittish of paranormal books, but that's because they're reading the wrong ones! This will turn your love of paranormal books back on for sure!

5 Stars
