I started this shortly after finishing Final Dawn, and despite being nearly the same length as the first book, it felt like a longer and more evenly paced adventure. The writing style is still the same, but we get the chance to see new planets and worlds that provide a very distinct atmosphere for each setting.
As for the story, if the first book is a fish-out-of-water story, this is a be-careful-what-you-wish-for tale. Jack’s singular motivation this entire time has been to get back home and save Amber, his one-connection to humanity and his previous life. Without her, not even saving his people would mean anything to him. As a result, he’s almost done some rather crazy things to get back. Most of those attempts, however, haven’t been surefire ways to return to Earth, primarily since no one even knows its name or location. This makes it all-the-more worrisome when an alien that does know of Earth offers a chance to get Jack back, but only if he steals a sun from the most advanced and vicious alien race in the galaxy.
With that in mind, everyone in the story, and even the reader, knows the stakes are high, and if things go south, the consequences will be ugly to say the least.
In the first book, I had a sense that things would still turn out ok, but in Thief of Stars, all bets were off. I legitimately didn’t know what was going to happen to the characters, which made for some very invested reading.
Overall enjoyment: Five stars! The book feels like a perfect follow up to Final Dawn, giving us a better view of the galaxy and the people that live in it. The stakes are higher, the suspense is palpable, and I got a genuine sense of danger for the characters.
It sounds silly, but it works thanks to the droids. If not for them Jack wouldn’t survive, have grown a pair, nor would this reader have enjoyed “Thief of Stars.”
