Our Dark Stars by Audrey Grey and Krystal Wade (Review)
A lost kingdom, a hunted princess, androids, AIs, and killers. Princess Talia is lost in time and space. She is supposed to be dead, dead as her people, dead as her kingdom and dead as her family. Adrift in the universe, when she is finally saved, nobody knows who she is and the new galaxy is compleatly changed. Androids have taken over and humans are now their slaves, if they were even left alive. Talia has to fix this, she has to save her people and fix her mistake that launched it all. Intermixed with romance and adventure, Our Dark Stars tells a story that traverses time and the universe.
From the get go, the story jumps from the past to the present fairly frequently. It was a little jarring, making some parts of the story feel more like fluff to balance the past and present parts then anything. I found Talia to be an okay main character. She was not very unique, but she was in no way a badly written character. Story wise, the romance was pretty weak and the inter-character relations were also just meh. Nothing terrible, but nothing great either. I also noticed that there were many exciting ways the story could have gone that would have been mind blowing and exciting, but it ended up being a mostly predictable plot. That aside though, it was still pretty fun to read, and because of that, I give Our Dark Stars FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
