Review Sea of Stars by Amy A Bartol (Book two - Kricket series)

Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

My Review & Thoughts 
Cover: Beautiful peek to whats to come to the leading lady Kricket. I also love when Authors stick with the same theme for their series! 
Genre(s): Sci Fi, Urban Fantasy, maybe New Adult 
Tag(s): Action, Priestess, New World, Alpha(s), Hot, Love
Romance: Surprising readers with a dip into the 'steamy' side of love!

Sea of Stars took me on an exhilarated futuristic ride throwing in emotions of love, anger, and hope.

Imagine a mix of movies, The Fifth Element, Total Recall, with colors and creatures of Avatar in its own originality, written beautifully vivid...that's all in the Sea of Stars! Sci Fi lovers this is a must read! I was excited  SUPER thrilled, doing the jig when I received an advance copy of one of my favorite Authors! I wanted to hide myself in a dark corner and indulge into this book all night BUT realistically I couldn't (hubby and my little one wouldn't appreciate that-bwahhah).

"If Kyon brings you back here, I will kill you," she promises. "Run, Little Kricekt. Run far away."

It took me a few days to take this book all in. The writing is vividly drawn out that I had to take breaks and think it all over again...Mrs Amy A Bartol dived in vastly improving her writing and tampering into the naughty side of romance. It was all done tastefully attractive and subtly simple.
"Show me what it feels like to be yours." -Kricket

Fans of this series will not be disappointed with the time the Author put into it, clearly shows with all the details and twining plot lines. So much is happening in this one itty book! 

Kricket I’ve always been in a jam with her since book one. I do think she has so much potential for being a heroine that many can love but she is stuck. Hung up on her ‘bad-ass’ past and gushing about Trey’s perfect body! None the less, Kricket shows her snarky 

What I loved about this book:
->>The action and adventure that Kricket takes us on. She goes through borderline death defining  obstacles. 
->>Trey does not disappoint with his rugged, demanding demeanor  
->>Kyon my poor villain! As I mentioned in previous reviews, I have a soft spot for my 'bad-guys'! (cough-cough Brennus) He definitely has some surprises in this installment. 
"Kricket! If you make me chase you again, I will kill him!" -Kyon

"Don't make me fall in love with you, priestess." 

Now here it comes...the drawn out wait time for the next book! WHY!! Of course, as always I will be looking out  stalking the Authors pages for updates. I should have none I was going to be left

Whats the first thing I do after I finish Sea of Stars (other than cursing the author) look for anticipated date of book three. 

Must read book one Under Different Stars to understand book two.
Huge, TREMENDOUS cliffhanger
Highly Recommended! Sci Fi buffs Must Read!
Thank you NetGalley for ARC for a honest review.

Mini Excerpt
"Sorry to disappoint you. I'll be the one communicating with you while you're with the Alameeda."
I scoff at that. The arrogance! "Keep dreaming. I'm never speaking to you again, lost boy. This is it for us. You should say good-bye now."
He growls, "You should stop thinking of just yourself! There are people counting on us not to fail, you ignorant child!"
"You must be my fathers favorite," I retort, like that's a bad thing.
"I am," he agrees with pride.
"Well, I'm the one he threw away, so I don't think I owe you, or him, or anyone else anything."
