It’s been too long since I posted a weekend reading tips, I’ve just been too busy with my own book being published and at the same time working on the sequel. But now I have finally had the time to read another great book that I’d like to spread the words about: No Ordinary Star by M.C. Frank. I was recommended this book by Darque Dreamer Reads, who was sure I would love it, and boy, was she right!
I really loved this fast paced, magic story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other. I absolutely adored both of the main characters and each of their unique personalities.
This book is the first in the futuristic YA trilogy taking place in the year 2524, when the world is a cold place in all its meaning: There’s no emotions left in human, men and women are separated, there are no families, food does no longer exists but are replaced by pills, everything is controlled. Humans can live for 300 years with no disease, no illness and no need to sleep. Even Christmas is forgotten!
What’s so special about this book is the format. It’s something between a short story and a novel, it’s very quick-paced and jumps right into the story. Once I started to understand the world described in the book and got to know the two main characters I just loved it! I absolutely adored both of the main characters, Felix (“tin soldier”) and Astra (“match girl”), they were both nice, innocent and smart. I also loved the cover, it’s so beautiful and really matches the futuristic vibe of the book.
If you’re looking for a unique, page-turning, emotional read with an important message, this is the series for you!
