“Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger—and more dangerous—than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity…and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents’ clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket’s precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.

A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection—and a home—in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what’s to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future, or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.”

I didn’t realize when I started this book that it was a sequel so I started the book fairly confused. I’ve heard that Sea of Stars picks up right where the first book left off and I didn’t find there to be a lot of recaping.
However, even though I was a little confused, I still really enjoyed this book.

Sea of Stars has a ton of action and is really fast paced. I spend most of the book in a daze because everything was so packed with action. I really liked that about Sea of Stars.

The writing was really awesome. It was really descriptive but not overly so. And the world building was insanely good. It’s so important for a fantasy to have great world building and Sea of Stars definitely delivered.

I loved the main character, Kricket. She was such a well written character and she kicked so much butt.

Honestly, I don’t have much to say for a review because I’m still trying to get over has action packed and fun this book was. I might have had a couple of heart attacks while reading this book.
I’m definitely going to be reading the first book and then rereading Sea of Stars because I really want to get more from Kricket and the awesome world that Amy Bartol has created.
