I think for me, the love between Trey and Kricket feels more emotionally driven and passionate. Some may argue that point with me, but read book 2 first before you comment. Amy intensified this in Sea of Stars. It's not that she takes their relationship to a new level, it's that she gets into the tiny little cracks and crevices of it. She puts a voice to their feelings and you can actually feel the little intricacies of their love. You can tell that she pours emotion into her writing and that there is a truth behind the words. The relationship feels real. Both Trey and Kricket are intelligent, strong, and I feel like I'm reading about real people.
I said she took their relationship farther and she does. The way that she progresses their relationship to a more intimate place is beautiful. I was telling her that I was glad that she moved things to a physical relationship because it was time. If she had done the whole "Twilight" thing where they waited until marriage, it wouldn't have felt real and would have been groan and eye roll inducing. You can't be that intensely close to someone and go through the roller coaster that they have and NOT take it farther. I loved the scenes that she wrote. I thought they were alluring, romantic, sensual, and absolutely perfect. I know Amy is worried about the reaction to these moments by her readers, but I believe that it will all be for naught.
Sea of Stars is an emotionally charged, action packed, tumultuous ride that will leave you breathless, frustrated, and completely spent at the end. There is a cliff hanger because Amy is a sadistic literary drug dealer who supplies you with the "crack" and then takes it away and dangles it in front of you right after you are hooked. And I love her for it. What does that say about me?? ;)
If you are familiar with Mrs. Bartol’s books, you know how her books are much more than words on a page. You know that they are poetry, written with a detail that is like no other author out there. They take you to an imaginary world so rich, you forget where you are.
The book starts out where Under Different Stars leaves off. Kricket and Trey are getting ready to meet with Skye Command with Wayra and Jax. They believe that Kricket is going to be safe there. Kricket starts to have visions of the future and it doesn’t look good for her. The Rafian politicians are planning games with Kricket’s, Trey’s and the rest of the Cavar’s lives. To make matters worse, Kyon still wants Kricket to own as his consort and will stop at nothing to get her, including killing every Rafe on the planet.
The story is “on the edge of your seat” action right from the beginning. There are aircraft chases, prison breakouts, sky-pack fights, drones, weapon fights and hand to hand combat. You meet new characters such as Giffen that has some handy powers of his own. You get to see some of the other priestess’s powers. The priestess’ are very interesting. I look forward to meeting the bird and the flower.
About 50% in, we get some down time with Trey and Kricket. The scenes are perfect, well written and done in a way that Mrs. Bartol can. You lose yourself in their romance. Wow, Trey is perfect. Not only is he beautiful with his dark hair and violet eyes, but his soul is too. He loves with fierceness that I have only seen a few books. Kricket does at times remind me of another character of Mrs. Bartol’s, Genevieve Clairmont. She wants to keep everyone safe even if that requires her to sacrifice herself.
The end is heartbreaking. Everything Kricket has ever wanted is taken from her. Everything she has led to believe was a lie. It is a cliff hanger ending. It will leave you with a book hangover. But it has never felt so good to be hung over.
