STARR THE COMPLETE TRILOGY by Dani Hoots in exchange for an honest review A year ago, Angela Starr woke up with amnesia Though she understood English, she instinctively spoke and thought in another language Despite extensive investigation, Angela was unable to find out who she was prior to the accident For the past year, Angela has been visiting various doctors trying to resolve her memory problems while attending community college to get her G.E.D Recently, Angela has started to run into a familiar looking young man about her own age she s drawn to him At the same time, Angela notices some threatening looking thugs following her When the thugs attack, the young man whisks Angela off through a portal to another planet.Though this is a complete trilogy, it was still pretty short I d classify it as a short novel The story first meticulously establishes Angela s routine on Earth However, once Angela gets to the new planet, the narrative zooms to completion with little exploration of the new world or build up to the finale Most of the exposition regarding the second planet was done through flash backs AFallingStarr NetGalley So this is all 3 novellas of Fallen Starr put together in one book, and that s a good thing because it would be a crime to read these on their own.The protagonist s amnesia is already an intriguing premise, with her only knowledge of the past being a name they found on her and an affinity for science, which of course she had no idea where it came from Just add the mysterious atmosphere surrounding the protagonist and the people who might be following her and Bam , hooked from the first pages.Th So this is all 3 novellas of Fallen Starr put together in one book, and that s a good thing because it would be a crime to read these on their

came from Just add the mysterious atmosphere surrounding the protagonist and the people who might be following her and Bam , hooked from the first pages.Then Emmerich appears, a boy who our protagonist Angela feels she knows Although, he doesn t seem to know her, even though she has vision like memories of him And if you thought it wasn t exciting enough, just wait until they are chased and end up going into a portal to another world Great 1st person POV, very realistic when it comes to emotions and random thoughts, like a trip in someone s brain Angela is a bit too naive and a little whiny, but I guess that is understandable in her situation The amnesia thing was done very well by the author You feel her confusion, conflicting feelings and fear.There are parts where it seems like the author is holding our hand, leading us through the story as if we were children I know a lot of people will enjoy it, but some of that repetitiveness to me was a bit annoying.There is a great lesson to be learned here of not only believing in yourself, but looking to those who believe in you, instead of those you want to bring you down This was such an incredible, fast paced, action packed sci fi adventure, but too short in my opinion Neededof this goodness A Falling Starr is a YA SciFi tale of a young woman with amnesia and her journey to finding herself This is a trilogy but reads as one story I enjoyed watching Angela find her strength and courage to fight for what she believes in An enjoyable escape. I received a copy of this book fair and honest review This is a set of novellas and they are a very short read I think a little took short They started out amazing and going from Oregon and then off to another planet She wakes up with no memories and she trying to go to community college She goes the planet and things seem familiar to her and she is trying to figure out why This is something she has to figure out I enjoyed it but I had wished it was a little bit longer.

When I got this book in my hands, I started reading with an open mind However, for the first few chapters I couldn t lose the feeling that I already read the story When a friend asked me how it was, I mentioned a few things, like the overuse of the word I comes with the pov , the added extra information, that didn t help drive the story and the way it was written, it feltlike a rambling of facts that happened, than a telling of a story Needles to say, I wasn t enjoying it enough to los When I got this book in my hands, I started reading with an open mind However, for the first few chapters I couldn t lose the feeling that I already read the story When a friend asked me how it was, I mentioned a few things, like the overuse of the word I comes with the pov , the added extra information, that didn t help drive the story and the way it was written, it feltlike a rambling of facts that happened, than a telling of a story Needles to say, I wasn t enjoying it enough to lose myself in the story The writing and the story becameto my liking, after a while And I felt like the author had grown during this project The story gained speed, stuff actually happened and I was interested The characters seemed to have gaineddepth and I kept reading The middle part was rather long, but kept interesting, because information was revealed slowly However the ending to me, was a let down I felt this was a quick rapping up of the story, and left me with that original, rather uninterested feeling In the end, I feel, the story idea was nice and interesting, but the author didn t deliver all that it could have been The start of the story was far to long and did not attribute enough to the whole, while the ending was too short and felt hasty
