Review this Book

In Between the Stars


What is alien and what is normal? To Inan, she’s just a girl on her homeworld, yet she dreams of travelling to the stars and experiencing all the adventures they promise. Dream is all she can do, as her people’s customs forbid girls to face dangers - especially amongst the stars. Instead of adventures, they are expected to serve their families as leaders and never take personal risks. But that is about to change as Inan’s life takes a sudden turn.

A series of events lead to her being lost in space, shipwrecked and kidnapped by soldiers-turned-pirates, a remnant from the war fought many, many years ago. With only an alien being to keep her company, she is forced to use her wits to stay alive. As she struggles, she befriends Alan, a human boy who is little more than a captive himself. Yet things go from bad to worse after a failed escape attempt when Inan comes into contact with an unknown ancient artefact which ultimately will decide the fate of the whole galaxy.

Catapulting the reader into an exciting space-opera universe, In Between the Stars is an original take on human-alien interactions, with quirky characters, high humour and endless amounts of drama. Readers aged 12 years and above will delight in the rich world that has been created, inspired by the likes of the great Science Fiction writers.

Absolutely loved this book. It kept me entertained and wanting more all the way through. Absolutely brilliantly written and an amazing book. Im hoping for a squeal so I can explore more of the stars with Inan and her friends.

The book is fantastic and has the unique dynamic story. I hope, I will hear about Inan's space adventures in the near future. The space opera wasn't my thing, but after that book, I have changed my mind.

This book is a truly great story, full of great adventure and spirit! A great read!

by Spiral

In Between the Stars is a unique story inspired by the great science fiction of the past. It's a space opera full of drama and ridiculousness. Inan, Hijinks, aliens, and Alan, human, are thrown together through an unfortunate chain of events. Together, they must survive and save the universe. It's an engaging and fun read. The characters are likeable and entertaining. Overall a good read if you enjoy space opera drama. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.
