    About: Blood of a Thousand Stars is a young adult fantasy written by Rhoda Belleza. It was recently published on 2/20/18 by Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House, paperback, 358 pages. The genres are young adult, science fiction, and fantasy. This book is intended for readers a...

    I need this book in my life so bad. Who do I sell my soul to for a copy. ...

    I can't believe how much I loved the first book. I refuse to believe this sequel will be the last. But apparently it is. And while this final book does provide more than enough closure to its predecessor, it's still...another duology? Really? I'm not a big fan of this particular ...

    ?Something inside Rhiannon rose up; the thing that made her who she was, whether it was pride or stubbornness or her soul, she couldn?t say, but it was like a power, pulsing inside her, waking her up from this nightmare, telling her there was still a way.????????...

    The best thing I can come up with right now is that this book, this duology was adorable. The world, the characters, the story, they were all adorable. What I mean by that is I enjoyed these books and had a pretty decent time but great as they were, they weren?t memorable. I wish the...

    That. Cover. ...

    Too many mixed feelings. This wasn't a bad book. It was problematic. Some ideas of this book appeared dropped in process and confusing. It was hard to follow explanation of something complex in just three short sentences, especially due to technological aspects of this sci-fi read....

    Thank you Penguin for the ARC! Cant wait to see if this is better than book one ?? ...

    Please Note: I received an advance audio copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not influence the opinions of my review in any way. When I saw that the audio book of Blood of a Thousand Stars, by Rhonda Belleza, was available for review, I go...

    This is pretty much the equivalent of the "Episode I - The Phantom Menace" and I mean it in the worst way possible. But it's still an improvement from the first book so there's that. The characters are all unlikable, the pacing is a mess and the action in some places bored me to de...

    ugh but i want like 60 more books in this series ...

    So apparently this is a duology? I'm kind of surprised --- Excited to see where this goes... ...

    I absolutely adored the first book in this series, Empress of a Thousand Skies. I loved the plot, the world, the characters, the writing, I loved everything. So of course I had to request an ARC of Blood of a Thousand Stars, and I was absolutely over the moon when I was accepted, so of...

    Yeah, no, the writing has not improved. It's that weird sort of ?she knew this? and ?he thought that? third person. Not a fan and I feel a lot better about disliking book one. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) This was OMG amazing. If I thought I was in love with the first and its technology and Aly/Kara plotline, this is even better. I loved the ethical conflicts, Kar...

    Where do I even begin with this? I don't know. I feel like I should type up a formal review but I'm out of practice and my feels just cannot be contained. So apologies, this is just going to be some random (and probably really long) splooge. I'll try to avoid spoilers, but it might be ...

    I think...4.25 stars. I want to go 4.5, but I still have some questions, and there were a few things I didn't like enough to drop the rating a bit. If that makes sense. Anyway. I don't know how to mark spoilers on my phone, so for now, just be warned that spoilers will happen!! I'l...

    Wow! I loved this sequel. There are murder plots, sacrifices, revenge, unpredictable twists (I I specially liked the last twist?but I won?t spoil it!), and very interesting and original technology (this is one of the reasons why I really liked the world-building). Also the characte...

    I think I may have liked this one better than the first one! There was maybe too much teen angsty romance for my taste, but I am decidedly NOT the intended audience. There are hints at social commentary, lots of "what if" questions about brainwashing of a large group of people, who d...

    This is pretty much the equivalent of the "Episode I - The Phantom Menace" and I mean it in the worst way possible. But it's still an improvement from the first book so there's that. The characters are all unlikable, the pacing is a mess and the action in some places bored me to de...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) This was OMG amazing. If I thought I was in love with the first and its technology and Aly/Kara plotline, this is even better. I loved the ethical conflicts, Kar...

    Where do I even begin with this? I don't know. I feel like I should type up a formal review but I'm out of practice and my feels just cannot be contained. So apologies, this is just going to be some random (and probably really long) splooge. I'll try to avoid spoilers, but it might be ...

    I think...4.25 stars. I want to go 4.5, but I still have some questions, and there were a few things I didn't like enough to drop the rating a bit. If that makes sense. Anyway. I don't know how to mark spoilers on my phone, so for now, just be warned that spoilers will happen!! I'l...

    Wow! I loved this sequel. There are murder plots, sacrifices, revenge, unpredictable twists (I I specially liked the last twist?but I won?t spoil it!), and very interesting and original technology (this is one of the reasons why I really liked the world-building). Also the characte...

    I think I may have liked this one better than the first one! There was maybe too much teen angsty romance for my taste, but I am decidedly NOT the intended audience. There are hints at social commentary, lots of "what if" questions about brainwashing of a large group of people, who d...

    *Source* Library *Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy *Rating* 3.5 *Thoughts* Blood of a Thousand Skies is conclusion to the Empress of a Thousand Skies duology. Story picks up right where the first installment left off. The story features four distinctive characters: Kara, Aly, Rhiann...

    "When was that pearl a speck of dirt? Where did one end and the other start? When did one become the other?" Emotion was welling up in Kara, powerful and unaccountable. "Maybe they were always both." In the sequel to Empress of a Thousand Skies, I found some of my dislikes from t...

    "I don?t like any version of my past, not even the imaginary ones." Don't forget to check out A Court of Coffee and Books on February 16th!! We'll be giving away an arc!! Empress of a Thousand Skies left us with our heart in our throats and many unanswered questions. None of u...

    This series had such promise. But, it?s piecemeal. The author doesn?t weave important bits of information into the story, she just hurls them at you when they are needed. She doesn?t create a timeline or a map, she just has people ending up on different planets with no explanatio...

    Meh. ...

    Oh my gods. The cover is gorgeous! ...

    I gave book 1 two stars. But that cliffhanger, okay? Everything I put on my TBR waits ages to be read anyway, so if I ever need a book to read, this will be on the back burner... I guess. I'm way too liberal with my "to read" shelving. *rolls eyes* ...

    I need this book in my life so bad. Who do I sell my soul to for a copy. ...

    I can't believe how much I loved the first book. I refuse to believe this sequel will be the last. But apparently it is. And while this final book does provide more than enough closure to its predecessor, it's still...another duology? Really? I'm not a big fan of this particular ...

    ?Something inside Rhiannon rose up; the thing that made her who she was, whether it was pride or stubbornness or her soul, she couldn?t say, but it was like a power, pulsing inside her, waking her up from this nightmare, telling her there was still a way.????????...

    The best thing I can come up with right now is that this book, this duology was adorable. The world, the characters, the story, they were all adorable. What I mean by that is I enjoyed these books and had a pretty decent time but great as they were, they weren?t memorable. I wish the...

    That. Cover. ...

    Too many mixed feelings. This wasn't a bad book. It was problematic. Some ideas of this book appeared dropped in process and confusing. It was hard to follow explanation of something complex in just three short sentences, especially due to technological aspects of this sci-fi read....

    Thank you Penguin for the ARC! Cant wait to see if this is better than book one ?? ...
