Description from the Publishers through Netgalley
Now a New York Times and USA Today bestseller!
To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a brand new epic novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eragon, Christopher Paolini.
Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.
Now she’s awakened a nightmare.
During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she’s delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.
As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn’t at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.
While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity’s greatest and final hope . . .
The premise of this book intrigued me so much that I was willing to leap out of my comfort zone and dive into this read. Wow! 880 pages later, I am finally done. I really enjoyed the storyline and character development. It wasn’t too much in the realm of a typical science fiction book that it turned me off. It was just LONG. I was getting annoyed that it took me so long to read but I didn’t want to put it down because I knew that I probably wouldn’t pick it back up again.
Kira was a great character and I really appreciated her relationships with the other characters both human and alien alike. I did think that some of the descriptions could have been shorter but all in all, I am happy I stuck it out and read it.
I gave this book 4 crowns.
