Sci-fi is a hard genre to tackle because it is easy to overwhelm the reader, but Oliver Storm crafted a book that I feel anyone can read! I thought the characters were well-rounded, and the storyline pulled me in. When I was taking a reading break, I found myself thinking back to this storyline, which is always a good thing! My favorite character was definitely Zaira. I loved her character arc and how we got to see her grow into her own throughout the story. The ending was GREAT too! It made me want book two right now! What I loved most was the worldbuilding of Alnitak! Author Oliver Storm did a great job in pulling me into the world he created.
I will say that although it was an easy read, I wanted the first paragraphs indented. I feel like that would have made me be able to find my place better when I left off in a section. With that said, it did not deter me from coming back to it and reading this book in a day and a half! If you love sci-fi, you need to check-out this book!
