Publisher's Summary

Past meets future in this tale of giants, dwarves, starships, and medieval warriors.
A starship crashes in the land of giants and pits a space-faring race of humanoids against a barbarian race of warrior giants.
The Fomorian giants watch in awe as a celestial object streaks across the sky on the eve of Samhain, the bloodiest pagan festival of the year. Druids proclaim that it's the prophesied Destroyer, and that the end of the world is near.
Fomorian mission: seek and destroy whatever fell to Earth. Starship mission: stay alive.
One giant has his eye on the blonde-haired Brigit, whose fiancé awaits her in a nearby star system, and the giants attempt to barter for her. Refusing their "generous offer" could put the starship crew at even greater risk. Brigit's actions at the barter table stun the giants, who've never encountered a woman so brazenly bold.
Five humanoid races are plunged into a battle for supremacy - giant Fomorians, Humans, Bigfoots, extraterrestrial Tirnogians, and Fenn dwarves - as a child of prophecy lives hidden in the shadows, waiting to fulfill his destiny.

POSSIBILITIES WERE ENDLESS..BUT JUST MEH STORY!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I requested this because I like this narrator, she is funny, and I think she is very talented...but this fell flat in so many areas...the world building was pretty good...but the story jumps around a lot and there isn't enough to it to justify all the jumping around in my opinion...YMMV! Narrator is good though!!!

Fresh Blend of Scifi and Myth

Star Borne is an interesting mix of starships and ancient pagan origins. I will fully admit my knowledge of old Irish myth is scant at best, but some of the terms and names sounded familiar.

The story itself is entertaining and the world building was fantastic. While it may be my inexperience with this type of genre, the slightly detached narrative reminded several times of "Til We Have Faces." While I didn't bond with any of the individual characters because of this, I think it's a fitting way to tell an alternative myth. The terrible, the violent and the beautiful were all told in a fairly impassive tone.

I found Elan O'Connor to be an enjoyable reader, her accent fit well with the setting. If you love myth and scifi, you'll want to consider Star Borne. If you only like one or the other, you may still want to give it a shot, I think it has enough of both genres to keep any reader/listener's attention.
