Thanks to the publisher for providing an eARC of The Brighter the Stars in exchange for an honest review.

The Brighter the Stars is clearly a well thought out sci-fi, but I unfortunately think that's part of the problem here. It's not necessarily short for a YA novel, but definitely for a sci-fi one since sci-fi tends to be longer to account for world building.

Once again, I want to thank Netgalley for providing me with this amazing opportunity to read this book.

The Brighter the Stars is a fast paced, fun science fiction adventure, set in our Milky Way galaxy. It has an element of love, as well as a government conspiracy, and the hero has to fight against all odds. You can check out more details on my website at ...more
