Starflight | Melissa Landers
Solara Brooks needs a fresh start, someplace where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. The outer realm may be lawless, but it's not like the law has ever been on her side. Still, off-world travel doesn't come cheap; Solara is left with no choice but to indenture herself in exchange for passage to the outer realm. She just wishes it could have been to anyone besides Doran Spaulding, the rich, pretty-boy quarterback who made her life miserable in school. The tables suddenly turn when Doran is framed for conspiracy on Earth, and Solara cons him into playing the role of her servant on board the Banshee, a ship manned by an eccentric crew with their own secrets. Given the price on both Doran and Solara's heads, it may just be the safest place in the universe. It's been a long time since Solara has believed in anyone, and Doran is the last person she expected to trust. But when the Banshee's dangerous enemies catch up with them, Solara and Doran must come together to protect the ship that has become their homeand the eccentric crew that feels like family.

Book 76 Audio

Another fun story! It kinda bogs down in the details every now and then, and the ending was very "happily ever after" which always makes me roll my eyes a bit but still a Pick.

I‘ve been craving all of the science fiction this year, I‘m not sure why, but I‘m not complaining. And this book certainly itched that scratch for me. I wasn‘t looking for anything too overly complicated. I mostly wanted a fun listen, and that‘s exactly what I got.

I loved this. It was so so fun. It was interesting and nonstop action. It kept me interested. The characters were what I needed them to be. Gotta love enemies to friends to lovers :)

LibrarianRyan I agree. I loved this book. Still haven‘t read the sequel but I will some time this year. 3y

Melissa Landers has just become a must read author for me. Outlaws, enemies to friends to lovers, intrigue, mayhem, and space pirates. What's not to love?!

Finished my first O.W.L with Astronomy (book with star in the title). Starflight by Melissa Landers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a reread for me, but it‘s been nearly 3 years and I didn‘t remember much. Such a fun story filled with romance, adventure, space pirates and conspiracies! Planning to pick up book 2 for my Potions final. #OWLsReadathon2018

RvnclawWhovian I‘m reading my Charms books currently. Good job finishing your first one! 4y

A task from my public library's 2019 reading list was to read a book that takes place in space. I honestly didn't have any prospects for completing it until meeting author Melissa Landers at Rosie Con in March. I sped through the pages, fast paced and enjoyable. Looks to be part of a trilogy, with the title coming out this summer, but could be read as a stand alone as all plots are tied up.

"I am more than the sum of my mistakes."

LibrarianRyan I really liked this book. I have the sequel and just hadn‘t read it yet? Is a third coming out? Over a year ago she posted online that she didn‘t have enough sales for the publisher to go ahead with a book 3. 4y
MaggieCarr @LibrarianRyan yes, #3 comes out this summer :) My TBR pile is massive so I'm in no hurry to get to #2 since the plot lines were tidy on this one. Let me know if you enjoy Starpass and I can move it up in the pile :) 4y
LibrarianRyan @MaggieCarr cool. This was originally in a book box. Upper case I think (but don‘t quote me). It came with nail wraps that I still have not used yet. 4y

You ever get into those reading slumps where you want to read, but don't want to read? That was me until I picked this book up. It's not the greatest story, but its fun and has a cheesy love story, and it was exactly what i needed. Just a reminder that the books that don't get the best reviews are sometimes the ones that can cheer you up and get you back up on your feet.

3.5🌟 This is between a pick and so-so for me. While I enjoyed the pace of the story, some additional “world building” details would have helped. In a previous post I wrote that I felt I was reading a Firefly-esque story. That sentiment rang true through the entire novel, but I‘m not sure the story was good enough to encourage me to read the sequel. We shall see.

One of my friends who came to help me move tried to kidnap this book. She started it last night and I saw it in her bag. I wouldn't have minded except it's signed! I swapped it out with the extra that came in the most recent PageHabit YA Quarterly. Don't mess with my books! 😂 (To be clear, I wasn't mad. After all, she helped me move!)

This was fun! Space opera-y and light. For some reason, I was distracted throughout the book by whether this was YA or not. I suppose that speaks to the inconsistent tone?

Not sure I'll be picking-up the next book despite enjoying the ride.

This was completely and totally #unputdownable and amazing and hysterical and it made me cry.

I enjoyed the humor and camaraderie and friendship and heartbreak and action. I loved the characters and the world in which they live and the fact that, although the end is a bit open, it makes sense.

And i loved that.

Not everything needs to wrap up neatly and pretty. It was rough and perfect and I couldn't get enough.

5⭐️

"Hey, slow breaths,” Cassia said.
Solara hadn‘t realized she was gasping. “Right. Sorry.”
“If you faint among pirates, don‘t bother waking up.”
Oh god. That was not helpful."

This book made me laugh so much (4 stars)

the cover of 'starflight' is so, so stunning! some other books that i adore the covers of are 'passenger' by alexandra bracken and 'the weight of zero' by karen fortunati.

Ok so this one technically doesn't take place in a galaxy far far away because some people still live on earth (honestly that part of the set-up of the universe confused me). This is the story of a rough-and-tumble but lovable space crew, always seconds away from stumbling into danger. The plot twists aren‘t surprising, but the story is still energetic, with plenty of action. Space pirates! Who doesn‘t love space pirates?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I can't believe it took me so long to pick this book up! I loved it! The story was full of action, emotion, and memorable characters. It definitely gave me Firefly vibes...with a little Pirates of the Caribbean thrown in for good measure! No big cliffhanger endings, but I still can't wait to pick up Starfall for more adventures with this ragtag family of fugitives!

This adventure book was fun but predictable. I found myself almost yelling at the characters not to do things. Still, the characters were detailed and flawed and changed in a satisfying way.

A mechanically-minded orphan looking to start a new life and the rich heir of a fuel empire find their lives (rather miserably) intertwined as they journey across the galaxy. After change in fortune, they find themselves on a ship with a small, quirky crew, whose actions may not be *entirely* on the up and up.

Solid character development helped win me over after an iffy start, and I was totally ready to be a crew member on Banshee by the end.

Oh man. I've always been such a huge fan of Joss Whedon's Firefly, and this felt like it was set in that same universe. I loved the whole premise of a ragtag team on board a junky spaceship, making their way through one adventure after another. But what I really enjoyed was the chemistry between the two main characters. So well written!

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would - lots of action, fast-paced and fun. I appreciated that the sci-fi stuff wasn't too heavy handed, too, as that's not my thing. But being that it's sci-fi, some of it was a little eye-rolly and also required some real suspension of disbelief. Plus, trying to avoid spoilers but there is a verrrrry typical YA trope that I really wish had been avoided. But still, fun and funny. 3/5 ⭐
