*Uses a Jedi mind-trick*You will buy this book. You will read this book.And you will love this book. Convinced yet? *is forcibly removed from the room*Ok, my Jedi skills are a bit rusty. Moving on. I think you should give the Lost Stars a shot. It's a perfect mix of sci-fi, romance and heroic fantasy. And it's Star Wars.“Look through my eyes”P.S. 2Pac returning as a Force ghost is my new aesthetic.

4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2015/11/09/rAnd to think, I almost gave this one a pass when I was compiling a list of books I wanted to read from the new Star Wars canon. What a mistake that would have been. Yes, this is categorized as Young Adult, but to be sure, this is not the kind of Star Wars YA from the old EU when the stories tended to lean more towards middle-grade audiences and few children’s series stood out strongly enough to make an impression. Lost Stars, in a w [...]

This is a great book. Very rarely do you get book that manages to tick every box. This is a love story, but this is not a fluffy story, both the characters are likeable, intelligent and principled. In fact all the characters are written very well, to the point that as a reader I was invested in each character, even the side characters. The book has great character development, and the story is set across the whole original trilogy and finishes a year after Return of the Jedi.Usually in stories l [...]

(I'd give this a 4.5 if I could).Wow. This one kind of came out of nowhere! I was so disappointed and let down with Aftermath that I didn't really think I had it in me to try another new Star Wars books so soon.Am I ever glad I did.What can I say? I loved everything about this book! The story has two points of view. We follow, and skip between, Thane Kyrell and Ciena Ree. Both of who, by the end of the book, I adore just as much as any of the classic cast from the movies. The timeline covers eve [...]

The Imperial training academy is an attractive place for naïve youngsters. For those that have never left their home-worlds, the magnificent space craft and disciplined soldiers look like a thing of wonder. They do not understand the harsh blood price the brutal Empire exacts; thus, Thane and Ciena are enamoured by the dreams of glory Tarkin gives them. They see the Empire as a machine, a mechanism of control, order and stability. And they want in.“He and the girl ran inside, where everything [...]

Many of the major events of the original Star Wars trilogy are experienced through two childhood friends, Ciena Ree and Thane Kyrell. Ciena and Thane are life long friends who find themselves on opposite sides of war.Lost Stars covers the lives of Ciena and Thane who happen to have been born the same time as the Empire. Their story starts at age 8 and continues on until after the end of Return of the Jedi. The story was good, but I was expecting more.The biggest surprise I experienced in this st [...]

This novel went down very smooth, with two well-drawn characters destined to be best friends, lovers, and eventually bitter enemies. What could make it better? Being in the Star Wars universe with cameo appearances of both iconic characters and situations.But, you ask, "But wouldn't that take away from the impact of a well-drawn adventure following these two children well into adulthood?" And I reply, "No, not really, unless you're a die-hard snob who believes that an entirely new worldbuilding [...]

In a lot of ways, Lost Stars is perhaps the perfect Star Wars book. If nothing else it's easily my favorite book in the new Star Wars canon and perhaps my favorite Star Wars book in general. As someone who grew up on the old extended universe, that's saying a lot. But I mean every word of what I've said. Lost Stars is everything I ever wanted from a Star Wars book.The author does a fantastic job of inventing her own story while fitting it seamlessly into the Star Wars narrative. She creates two [...]

So, this book basically came out of nowhere, right?I only heard about it a couple of months ago thanks to some GR friends, all of whom were also completely surprised by how good this book was. (Granted, I think a lot of them don't regularly read YA and might be unaware of some of the wonderful authors currently working in the genre.) But still. Even with all of those reviews, the book still managed to surprise me. Because what's so surprising about it isn't that it's good, but HOW it's good.The [...]

I was a little disgusted with this book.No, actually, I was very disgusted with this book.If I was presented with an action-adventure novel wherein the main character was an apologist for Hioroshima and Nagasaki and throughout that novel kept saying things like "well, the US were only trying to prevent further death and stop the war from escalating" I would probably take that book and rip out every single page individually before setting it on fire.Herein one of our two main characters is a Deat [...]

STAR WARS + ROMEO AND JULIET + CLAUDIA GRAY = EPICWHY DIDN'T I KNOW OF THIS BOOK SOONER??!??!!???!!!!!EDIT 12/26/2015THIS BOOK IS AMAZING! I love how there are some snippets into The Force Awakens. This book is so smart and brilliantly written. I also highly recommend the audiobook. It features the iconic Star Wars scores and it was an amazing production. I am blown away.

Executive Summary: Young Adult Romance is not my thing, and I probably would have enjoyed this one more if that wasn't the main plotline.Audiobook: Like all Star Wars audiobooks, you get music and sound effects. That kind of thing annoys me in general, but seems to work well for Star Wars books. Pierce Cravens isn't nearly as good as Marc Thompson, but he's decent. His normal reading voice seems more appropriate for this book anyways.Full ReviewI was reluctant to pick this one up knowing it was [...]

Review originally posted here at Geek of Oz.Other 'Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens reviews':Star Wars: Aftermath---The acronym 'YA' (Young Adult) carries a bit of a stigma in some literary circles. As the median between kids' and 'adult books, YA can be seen as softer, less interesting and only appealing to a niche demographic of teens and early 20s. That is, it can be seen as such if you're not willing to ignore such rigid styles of classification and enjoy a book entirely on its own me [...]

I was very hesitant to pick this one up. I literally just got done reading "Aftermath" and got burned by that books crappiness in a big way. Plus, this book is "YA" and I usually avoid those because I'm not Y (or necessarily an A but I digress). Also, I looked up Claudia Gray's other books and they look like YA romance books that are the one genre that I consistently avoid.Well, I'm glad I forced those issues out of my mind and picked up the book. (See what I did there? Man, I'm clever!) "Lost S [...]

Wow. This title ranks up there with the Darth Bane: Star Wars 3-Book Bundle: Path of Destruction, Rule of Two, Dynasty of Evil trilogy as some of the best Star Wars fiction I've read. (I'll even go a step further, and say that this is not just a good "Star Wars" novel, this is a great novel overall.)Though I wasn't familiar with her before, having read this makes me more interested in her other works (which is amongs the highest praise I can give an author.)Claudia Gray knows her way around the [...]

The Review Can Also Be Found Here: thefictionalhangoutsite.wordpI’ve been looking to find this book for ages and was finally able to get ahold of a copy whilst I was in the Forbidden Planet Store in London, I knew It would take me long to start reading and I quickly devoured through its pages on the journey home, and was really blown away by what may be the best Star Wars novel from the new Expanded Universe so far.The book itself adopts a very Romeo and Juliet feel to Star Wars as it Forrest [...]

Lost Stars is a new adult novel set in the Star Wars universe. By setting this novel in a well-established canon, Gray doesn't need much exposition. Because of this, Lost Stars features events from the original Star Wars trilogy as well as events leading up to Episode VII. Characters like Tarkin and Darth Vader appear, because both main characters are in training to be Imperial officers.It's a star-crossed love story, so barriers separate Thane and Ciena throughout the narrative. First, they are [...]

Lost Stars blew my mind! It's great. The story, the characters all were perfect. I got hooked from the beginning. This just proves that you can come up with a whole new set of characters and still get the hardcore fan love them as much as the ones from the movies. Startegic cameos from the later remind you that the novel is part of a larger universe. The way the characters react to the events from the old trilogy birngs a new dept to the familiar story but the most important to me was the fact t [...]

More like 3.5 starsThis is only the second Star Wars novel I have read in the new canon (the other being Lords of the Sith). I have to admit I didn't like it quite as much as some others who have read it, but it was definitely an enjoyable read. It was well written and I am glad Claudia Gray is writing the next in the line of canon novels "Bloodlines." I am very much looking forward to learning more about the stories leading up to The Force Awakens. I recommend for anyone looking to get into the [...]

I've never read any of the Star Wars expanded universe books, but a friend told me I had to read this book by Claudia Gray, and it was wonderful. It was a behind-the-scenes look at the events of the original trilogy through the eyes of two best friends who both join the Imperial academy, but wind up taking very different paths. The story is fantastic, and while it's grounded in the events of the original trilogy, it doesn't overwhelm the story. If you enjoy Star Wars, I think you'll really love [...]

This book was, simply put, astounding. I was so, so, so excited for THE VERY FIRST Star Wars YA book, and I could not be more impressed by the book Claudia Gray wrote.There were amazing parts of this book that took place far away from the well known plot-lines of the OT, and there were some that took place breathtakingly, heartbreakingly close. I can't even pick which I like more; I'm so glad we got to see both, and everything in between. That flash of recognition when a familiar character walks [...]

1 million stars! I finished this hours ago and I'm still blown away how fucking amazing this book was. It was everything I wanted in a SW novel and more. I loved how it expanded through the original trilogy and a bit before Force Awakens. I will admit I was a bit scared to read this since I'm not a fan of the author's pnr books. But man can she write scifi! I'm looking forward to the next SW book she's coming out with in a few months. Hopefully it's just as perfect as this one was. :) A MUST REA [...]

I gave one star to Divergent and Hunger Games, and I consider the film Titanic as 194 minutes of my life wasted. In short: I am not the target audience for Claudia Gray's Lost Stars. I am, however, a big Star Wars fan, and have been since almost the beginning (I was 2 in 1977; I caught up as soon as I could, and I have no memories of life before Star Wars). I really want the fictional world of Star Wars to be as good as it can be, and I'm disappointed by books, movies, or other media that don't [...]

This is a fine young adult (YA) addition to the new Star Wars canon. Claudia Gray is author of other YA books like Evernight and A Thousand Pieces of You. I have not read them, but I would assume she played to her strength in Lost Stars. Her other works also focused on young romance, relationships, coming of age, and boarding school (though not an Imperial Academy.) Her descriptions of combat and all things 'techie' are brief, probably because that kind of writing is not her style.There are many [...]

If you only read one book in the new Star Wars canon, make sure this is it. This book should have massive crossover appeal as well. If you like sci fi, if you like love stories, if you like Star Wars, or any combination of those three things, you need to give this a read.Now a candidate for best book I've read all year, and that honor has *never* fallen to a franchise title like this.So, so good.
