Publisher's Summary

Winner of four 2014 UtopYA Awards, including Best Book of the Year and Best Sci-Fi Book of the Year.
Kricket Hollowell never wished upon stars. She was too busy hiding in plain sight, eluding Chicago's foster care system. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, she now eagerly anticipates the day she'll stop running and finally find her place in the world.
That day comes when she meets a young Etharian soldier named Trey Allairis, who has been charged with coming to Earth to find Kricket and transport her to her true home. As danger draws close, he must protect her until she can wield the powers she cannot use on Earth... and he soon realizes that counting a galaxy of stars would be easier than losing this extraordinary girl.
Kyon Ensin knows the powerful depths of Kricket's gifts - gifts he'll control when he takes her for his tribe and leads the forces that will claim Ethar and destroy his enemies, starting with Trey Allairis. Now, Kricket faces the most difficult choice of her life: whether to wage a battle for survival, or a fight for love.

Excellent Start to Intriguing Series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Under Different Stars to be better than the print version?

Yes but I must say that as I suffer with my eyesight, reading gives me splitting headaches and detracts from the enjoyment of a book so I tend to only listen to the audio.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Under Different Stars?

I cant give details without it becoming a spoiler, so will just say it was the main character holding her own in an unfamiliar place.

What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

I liked the fact that she put inflections into conversations.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

Fantastic world building and original story. The characters are well developed and I'm looking forward to the next book immensely.

Do yourself a favour and read this series!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this book to everyone I know. Even thought at first I think a lot of them wouldn't think this would be their thing. I didn't at first, the first few chapters make this book seem like your typical YA novel but that is misleading.
Each book gets better and they are already amazing. Well book one is good, although it does have a slow and cliched start, book two is amazing and book three is heart-breaking. There needs to be a book four. It's such a beautiful read, money well spent.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Under Different Stars?

Can't think of a moment. But I loved the characters you really grow to love them.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to it in one sitting, then I bought the next one and NEEDED to buy the third but hopefully not last in the series.
