Image result for the star thiefRenna Carrizal is the most notorious thief in the galaxy. She’s been a thief since childhood but now at twenty-three she has finally decided to settle down somewhere. She decides to take one last job that will give her enough money to be able to find a place far away from trouble. Trouble is the first thing she finds in the form of a small boy while infiltrating the facility she was assigned. The boy she rescued is the key to the whole galactic war going on. She is given an opportunity to live freely after its all over but only if she joins forces with MYTH, a top-secret galactic protection agency, otherwise she will be cast into a prison cell for the rest of her life. With no other choice, she begrudgingly agrees but her new mission is going to be far harder than her previous ones. On top of all of this, Hunter, who Renna thought was dead, is now MYTH’s captain and he hates Renna for something she did back then. Now Renna must save the galaxy and discover what’s going on while working along side Hunter and trying to fix their past relationship.

My Thoughts:

This book really caught me by surprise. I didn’t expect to really like it because of the ratings it had. It only rated 3.55 stars on Goodreads and I usually tend to read books that are 3.8-5 stars. I know I know, I shouldn’t be basing my next book on ratings but that’s what ratings are for right? Anyways, thanks to a fellow Goodreader’s review I decided to pick this book up and see how it goes.

This was definitely something new that I haven’t yet read. I am not a big fan of Sci-Fi  so I tend to steer away from books in that genre but this one just sounded too good to pass up. This book had exactly what I look for! It had a sarcastic kick ass heroine, a hot stubborn male, some mysterious case needing to be solved, and some good romance scenes.

The only thing I didn’t like was the ending. This book ends on a really bad cliffhanger. The story just cuts off at the end and the author doesn’t bother to wrap it up in some sense. I wouldn’t mind so much if it was one of those short stories with a part one etc., but this was a full long paged book and for it to end like that just wasn’t cool. Other than the awful cliffhanger, this book was full of action scenes! There was a lot of detail that went into each page. I think the world building could have had a little more work done. The story is suppose to take place somewhere in the future where earth has been destroyed and people could travel to different planets (at least that’s what I understood). Space is so grand so it’s hard to grasp this world the book talks about when not enough details on it are given.

In conclusion, I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it. It was a good new read and I recommend it to those sci-fi readers out there.

My rating: 4/5 starsImage result for 4 stars

 

In the mist of it, I was still confused as to where the characters were at. I’m not sure if they were traveling from one planet to the other or if it was just different cities. I didn’t mind it so much because the story telling was really good. It could have also been just a personal thing that I couldn’t understand the setting but perhaps other reader did. I probably wont continue with the series. I think I’m good with what was provided which was  that of Renna and Hunter fixing their relationship.
