Darken the Stars by Amy A. Bartol WILL stir up emotions. Can you handle it?
*I received an advanced copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is my honest opinion.*
When I started this journey with Kricket, I had never heard of Amy Bartol, nor did I know her books had a following. I read the first book because I got it free with Kindle Unlimited.
You just never know when a book will change you!
When faced with decisions that offer you little chance of survival but hope to achieve “the greater good”, not many of us are up to the task. In Amy Bartol’s most recent edition to the Kricket series (and in theory, the last) we find Kricket at the hands of her enemy, Kyon Ensin.
Through the course of this storyline, we have seen Kricket emerge from a broken city girl to a battered victim of fate – now we see her as a strong, self-aware woman who makes decisions for herself, and is no longer waiting for a night in shining armor – she knows if she is going to survive, she needs to trust herself.
This was a very emotional journey – I cannot imagine a reader closing this book at the final page feeling nothing…. personally, I cried. Will it be an HEA? Will Kricket go back to Earth? Will she die at the hands of the Brotherhood, or worse – her own father?
Take the time to read this book – if you’re anything like me, you won’t put it down until the very last word… and you’ll be thankful for the ride.

Most of the time, you can find her with a bulldog at her feet in her home office in Pittsburgh, writing content or developing brand campaigns for clients – or sneaking a quick read of a new release.
