Review: Light Years

*I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

Light Years is a YA Sci-fi book by Kass Morgan. It is about:


‘Reeling from the latest attack by a mysterious enemy, the Quatra Fleet Academy is finally admitting students from every planet in the solar system after centuries of exclusivity.

Hotshot pilot Vesper, an ambitious Tridian citizen, dreams of becoming a captain – but when she loses her spot to a brilliant, wisecracking boy from the wrong side of the asteroid belt, it makes her question everything she thought she knew. Growing up on the toxic planet Deva, Cormak will take any chance he can get to escape his dead-end life and join the Academy – even if he has to steal someone’s identity to do it. Arran was always considered an outsider on icy Chetire, always dreaming of something more than a life working in the mines. Now an incoming cadet, Arran is looking for a place to belong – he just never thought that place would be in the arms of a Tridian boy. And Orelia is hiding a dark secret – she’s infiltrated the Academy to complete a mission, one that threatens the security of everyone there. But if anyone finds out who she really is, it’ll be her life on the line.

These cadets will have to put their differences aside and become a team to defend their world from a cunning enemy – but the danger might be lurking closer to home than they think…’ (Goodreads synopsis)


My Thoughts:

This book was really fun to read. I dont read any scifi books so it was nice that i was finally able to read a book set somewhere else. I really liked the characters in this book and how different they all were. I also like that we got to see the points of views of each of them. Even tough they were all so different it was interesting to see how they all interacted and became friends. The four central characters:

Cormak: a boy from a toxic planet called Deva, who takes his dead older brother’s place in the Quatra Fleet Academy.

Vesper: the  daughter of one of the Quatra Fleet’s elite commanders, who’s struggling to live up to her mother’s brilliance.

Arran: a ridiculously smart boy from the icy planet of Chetire. (Hes such a sweetheart! one of my favourites)

Orelia: a girl from the planet of Loos (or so but who’s hiding a much darker secret.

I love the plot of this book and how its a competition and it makes different personalitys to work together towards a goal!

Its such an easy read and perfect for fans of illuminae!

I gave this book 4 stars!

4 star branch

Go check this book if your a fan of illuminae!
