Starflight Book Review

This book was equal parts hilarious, spectacular and swoon-worthy. The world was so beautifully built, and the story so well-written, that I easily and instantly rooted for the characters and leaped into the world. I loved the crew and their chemistry. The fact that each and every one of them is an outcast and has their own dark past and conquered battles made them so interesting. Cassia and Kane were my favorite couple, to be honest. I WANT A BOOK SOLELY ABOUT THESE TWO. Their love/hate relationship was hilarious aka so amusing. I’d wait for the parts in which their in. Doran and Solara’s relationship was so friggin cute. Totally cliche, and totally predictable, but dammit they constantly made me squeal and swoon. Both of their characters’ transformation were note-worthy, not to mention the fact that they overcame their prejudices throughout the book. Loved the action-packed scenes, especially the fight scene between Doran and Demarkus.
I loved it when Doran didn’t hesitate when he saw that Solara was joining him, Kane, and Cassia on Planet X. I was actually waiting for the “No, it’s too dangerous” talk, but then this happened:

Doran exhaled in relief. She’d promised to stay behind until they knew it was safe, but secretly he was glad to have her here.

My respect for Doran multiplied after I read that.
And although there was a lot going on with the characters, I couldn’t help but feel that this book was an easy and light read. It was so much fun to read, what with the jokes and teasing between the crew members and the Captain’s comments and Renny’s incurable pickpocketing habit..

Starflight (Starflight, #1)
by Melissa Landers

synopsis

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She’s so desperate to reach the realm that she’s willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he’s been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world—and each other—the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe…

    AGHHH I READ THIS BOOK RECENTLY TOO AND ITS TOO CUTE ❤️ and their hate to love relationship ship was so cute
    And it was so funny how he was admiring her toes 😂 I love how it wasn’t as cliche as “her eyes were a brilliant shade of [color]”

    I also read the sequel which focuses on Kane/Cassia but it was so angsty, sadly. It was still good!
    Nice review, glad you enjoyed be book! 😃
