Refractions of Frozen Time by Marcha Fox is the fourth installment of the Star Trails anthology. It’s one of those unique compilations in that each story is able to stand alone without the assistance of the others, and therein lies the magic. The Star Trails Tetralogy followed the journey of the Brightstar family as they were scattered to the farthest ends of the galaxy trying to avoid the manipulations of the evil Integration program. We watched Merapa Brightstar take a stand against the terrib ...more

As the fourth and final book in the series Refractions of Frozen Time a fitting end to the struggle against INTEGRATOR. I have been drawn to this series since the first book and have quickly become a Marcha Fox fan. She integrates actual science into science fiction, creating worlds, customs, and life forms outside the world we live. Her creativity and imagination never fall short but always leave me wanting more.

In the final book we see Laren Brightstar arrested and on a one way ship; destinati

Recommends it for: everyone that likes science fiction
Writer, Marcha Fox takes us on a fast-paced adventure through time and space in The Star Trails Tetralogy. Strong themes of family unity, genius, loyalty, and tenacity drive the action in all four books. The story involves the Brightstar family from the planet Mira III. When Laren Brightstar, the patriarch of the family, is arrested, his wife and three children are caught up in a drama that will affect each of them on every level of their being. The Brightstars rely heavily upon their Miran logi ...more

This last installment in the series is my favorite of the four! The peril is heightened so the suspense is, too. I love seeing the threads from all the books come together, and the climax is so amazing and unexpected, I kept waiting to hear a huge pipe organ chord! Wow! I love this family and how they all grow in unexpected ways, even when facing death. This series has made me remember why I love science fiction--it stretches my brain in mind-bending ways and opens new ways of seeing the univers ...more

Fox would have be proud to write this.

The Star Trails Tetralogy is the classic story of good versus evil seen through one family’s struggle to reunite, an endeavour that draws in a number of lonely souls along the way. The three Brightstar siblings are the young heroes of this story and, as they observe and understand their surroundings, their conclusions can be coloured by their Miran schooling. It’s when they break old habits in order to survive the hostile planet they must now call home that they open their minds and hearts to th ...more

I really liked this book! It reminded me a little of Timothy Zahn’s ‘Star Wars - Thrawn Trilogy.’ The Brightstar family have helped to form a rag-tag alliance of multi-cultural rebels (robots, alien bugs and vegemals!) against a planet-dominating conglomerate of men who are evilly ambitious. I think the evil characters, especially Augustus Troy, were my favorites, because I liked that they were these ambitious middle-manager types, but their ‘corporate initiatives’ involved genocide.

I purchased the Star Trails Tetralogy Box Set, but am reviewing each book in the series as I finish reading. This was the last and I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes learning a bit of science, while they are following great characters through the trials and tribulations of their story.

I think each of these four books could stand alone, but felt fortunate to be able to get the box set when it was introduced, for the price of one book. If you haven't had the opportunity to read any

So many twists and turns. I really like the little brother. He is so smart and positive. These kids are all smart and it was amazing to see them work together and accomplish so much.
