Ignite the Stars Reviews
4.5 stars bumped up for the massive crush I have for the mc, Ia
How do I even begin describing this book? Ignite the Stars was grandiose, adventurous, and triumphant. It’s a science fiction that follows the journey of Ia Cocha, a daredevil rebel who’s escaped the clutches of the Olympus Commonwealth more than once. But when she’s finally captured, at the beginning of the book, everyone is surprised to see that she’s a young girl. To increase nationalism and use her as propaganda fodder, the Commo ...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
A Stellar Debut!
Ia is the scourge of the All Black. The Sovereign of Dead Space. Rogue of the Fringe Planets. Blood Wolf of the Skies.
And she's only seventeen.
But he rampage all comes crashing to a halt when the Olympus Commonwealth's army finally catches up to her. They apprehend her, but instead of throwing her into prison for life, they take a gamble, thinking they can use her youth and skills to help in their fight. So instead of a prison colony, they send Ia to Aphelion, a top-secret train ...more

"Think Throne of Glass set in space"
And just like that, you lost me. Have fun guys, I'm out of here.
This is the space adventure I’ve been waiting for! Strong female characters, friendships, slow burn romance and a lots of high stakes missions. YES.
Some of the plot threads took me to places I wished for more info on, but it’s only because I loved it and wanted more.
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
DNF at 27%
On paper, this book is everything I ever wanted in a YA sci-fi. Found family. LGBT rep. Diverse MC (mainly Ia, who is Asian). Political themes that tie in to the present day. That gorgeous cover.
I couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough to work through to the rest of the story.
Merciless galactic criminal mastermind at 17? Okay, sure.
19-year-old Flight Instructor? Sure. Sure.
Scared immigrant who joins the military out of a misplaced patriotism? Okay, yeah.
Military Academy that ...more
