Title: Sea of Stars (Kricket #2)
Author: Amy Bartol
Genre: YA Fantasy/Paranormal/Sci-fi Romance
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.

Sea of Stars resumes where Under Different Stars left off. Uncertainty prevails with new villains to hate, new characters to question, and gripping intensity woven into Kricket’s journey. It was completely unpredictable, captivating and full of moments that left my heart racing.
Kricket is witty, determined and unpredictable. That makes her simultaneously vulnerable and powerful. The allies can’t control her, the enemies are charmed by her, and Kricket has not yet discovered the magnitude of her powers. Though fear is present just beneath the surface, she wears courage like a badass heroine. Trey’s determination to protect Kricket is fierce and unwavering. The tension between them continues to escalate as they are thrust from one intense situation to the next in this ongoing battle to capture Kricket and harness her powers.
I continue to be enchanted by this story and these characters. Though I am completely smitten with Trey, my heart keeps reminding me there is so much to Kyon that we just don’t know yet. His motive and intent are among the many things that have my mind racing with the possibilities of what will happen next. I am anxious for the next installment, Darken the Stars (Kricket #3), which is set to release September 8, 2015 from 47 North, an Amazon Imprint.
Overall Rating – 5 Brilliant Stars
**I switched between reading and listening to the audiobook. A separate review will be posted to Audible’s website for this title.
Patricia’s Review of Under Different Stars (Kricket #1) →
I live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. When I’m writing, they often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my “writing uniform” consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed.
