'Of Hearts and Stars' is an emotional and fast-paced coming of age story. Reading like a classic set in the future where we have space travel, Edward West has brought together a memorable set of characters set against harsh odds in the midst of a war.
Having lost his parents at a young age, Leoric Swift faces one brutal challenge after the other, starting with escaping an abusive orphanage. When he reaches the Arbalest Solar Academy, he makes friends with Reveille and Gin and together they may be what turns the tides to victory.
Anyone who is a fan of 'Ender's Game' and endearing sci-fi stories of friendship will greatly enjoy this one. I can’t wait for the next book!
