Ignite the Stars Reviews
This was super awesome! I admit that maybe it wasn't the most original of plots, but it was an old plot in a new setting that made it seem really fresh and interesting. And it was a fun plot, at any rate. I really liked it. And I TOTALLY get the comparisons to throne of glass because there were some similarities. But even if you didn't love tog, I still recommend this because even though there were some similar things about it, it was not....the same. And I will attempt to write this ...more

Everyone in the universe knows the outlaw Ia Cocha and fears him. One thing they don't know is that Ia is actually a seventeen year old girl. In reality she is a top notch pilot and a criminal mastermind who has spent her entire life terrorizing the imperalist Commonwealth that destroyed her home. When Ia gets caught by the Commonwealth, they see the truth of her identity as an opportunity. They will force her to serve them and pr ...more
More space sci-fi plus an Asian protagonist? SOLD! Not a fan of the cover though so might just get the Kindle edition.
**I was provided an ARC of this amazing story from the publisher in exchange for an honest review**
Okay, holy crap. I've had to take a couple days after finishing this to form a coherent review.
Let me start by saying that SciFi/Space type books are NOT my thing. Well, they weren't my thing...but this book changed my mind.
I was sucked in right from the start.
Ia is the main character. She is a badass. She is fearless and ruthless and strong. Also, she is passionate. Everything she does, she does w ...more
I received an ARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
In YA, it is not uncommon to have teenage protagonists lead armies, or be the smartest, most dangerous person around by the end of the book. Ia is not one of those protagonists. She is already the most dangerous criminal in the galaxy by the time she turns seventeen, and has been building her reputation for years.
I admit that this tested my suspension of disbelief, which sounds strange to say in a sci-fi book with aliens. Still ...more
ALL THE YES. A diverse, empowering sci-fi that's at once super accessible and also full of deeper issues, Milan expertly weaving heart-pounding action scenes and swoony romance with real-world themes of imperialism and prejudice. The military-academy setting brings those perfect boarding-school vibes and every character sings off the page. Also, LOVE the realistic portrayal of female friendship, complete with all its problems and unique merits. Yay for bad-ass girls of all kinds!
*sobs in asian*
this was EVERYTHING I expected and more. I love the cover so much, even the vague and general space nebula background behind the model.
Ignite the Stars was the manifestation of everything I’ve wanted in a sci-fi novel:
→ a badass Asian protagonist
→ a found family
→ a slow-burn-as-hell romance
→ subtle current-day political themes
Seriously, Ia is amazing and she knows it.
Also, why was this pitched as Throne of Glass in space? This has a similar premise, but the plot goes in a very di ...more
10% in and I knew I was hooked! That doesn't happen near as often as I would like. I'll be the first to say that I am not a big sci-fi YA fan. I can probably count on one hand how many YA sci-fi books I have read and actually enjoyed it. Not my favorite genre, BUT Ignite the Stars is certainly and most definitely the exception and I am so happy that I took the chance. The basic plot honestly reminded me of Divergent in the beginning - a girl is sent to a training "facility" and eventually falls ...more
