Terrifying betrothed who is intent on unraveling all her secrets and her own growing feelings for Ruckus and Delaney is in way over her headGet lost Amid Stars and Darkness in this YA sci fi romance from debut author Chani Lynn Feener Publication date July 18 2017I actually liked this book a lot I kept putting it aside until I finally decided to pick it up and it was everything The story was amazing And that cliffhanger Man I need that second book pronto Delaney is funny sarcastic tough and clever My favorite kind of heroine She was so entertaining to read Despite being kidnapped by aliens and forced to pretend to be the clearly spoiled Princess; Delaney refused to be cowered and added a humorous and brave spin to an otherwise dangerous situation Mariana sounds amazing as well I hope we get to see of her in books to come Delaney clearly needed a female friend Too much testosterone going on There's definitely room for improvement Not everything was perfect However this book is definitely addictive I would appreciate if we could see some world building in the future I mean she was on an alien planet after all I felt like I needed a little just to fully submerge myself in this world More female characters are needed as well Too many brooding and protective males Thank you NetGalley and Swoon Reads for sending me and ARC in exchange for an honest review

Stop Please stop He organized an assassination attempt to kill Delaney Olena He grabbed her and frightened her None of this is forgivable nor should it be Oh and I hated the ending It involves Trystan and it makes my blood boil The ending would have been perfect minus a few paragraphs In some ways I want to know what happens next because I hate being so angry about the ending On the other hand I think it's better for my sanity if I try and forget I ever read this book and avoid talk of the next two booksI didn't really feel invested in any of the characters except maybe Ruckus All of the characters seemed a little one dimensional? Like cardboard cutouts? I didn't connect with Delaney though I felt bad for her situation I feel like she didn't put up enough of a fight to get back home initially and throughout the story The war that would break out if it was discovered that Olena had fled? It would be between aliens and entirely NOT Delaney's fault or problem Any logical human being would have found a way to escape Stolen a ship bribed someone since she is now a princess etc There are ALWAYS options and the author took the unrealistic one If Delaney were half as brazen as she tried to act she would have been sneaking around trying to find a way out in addition to playing princess That seems logical to me I hated Trystan Who sets up an assassination attempt on you and then you forgive him? Well I hope Delaney doesn't forgive him She doesn't in this but since I'm convinced the author wants to make Trystan a legitimate love interest I'm sure Delaney will forgive him in future books Ewwwww love trianglesCan I go on a mini rant? Why are so many Swoon Reads books full of love triangles? I understand the workings of the Swoon Reads community it's very different from the contracted work that you see announced on Publishers Weekly but why is it that so many of the manuscripts spit out love triangles? Especially with so many readers not interested? This book is getting a low rating from me mostly because of the love triangle though not entirely so Do better Swoon ReadsWould I Recommend ItI do not recommend this book to anyone even if you don't mind love triangles It's not the most impressive space y science fiction novel in YA lit out there and it's not an impressive debut I want to say that I expect better from Swoon Reads but then I really don't Skip this book and save yourself the frustration Especially since this book is part of a trilogy and we all know how YA authors love to do stupid things with romances in trilogiesIf you want to read a space y science fiction YA book try the Starbound trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner or the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis or The Diabolic by SJ Kincaid or the Alienated trilogy by Melissa Landers or the Starflight duology by Melissa Landers Literally so many better YA science fiction books out thereRating15 stars rounded up to 2 stars Maybe I should round down? I think I'm being generous for no reason Well there are a few reasons above This book wasn't all bad but I won't be remembering it fondly Heck I won't be remembering it at all Hopefully
