Publisher's Summary

The highly anticipated sequel to Under Different Stars, winner of four 2014 utopYA Awards.
Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger - and more dangerous - than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity...and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents' clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power, and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket's precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.
A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection - and a home - in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what's to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

We get it, she's in love

I love this story...even though the lead character is a little too perfect. However, a LOT of this book was frustrating. I wanted to get into the actual plot, but Kricket wouldn't shut up about "desire" coursing through her veins and blah blah blah. I don't need erotic descriptions of Kricket and Trey getting it on, and scene after scene of her and Trey vowing to love each other forever, followed by mooooore sex in more dangerous scenarios. WE GET IT. Get on with the story!

Not Science Fiction

OMG... I don't know why I had to finish it but I did. just because there are spaceships and other planets doesn't make this any less a sappy romance novel. I was so happy when our heroine got nabbed because she was feeling so lusty towards our hero. That was the most satisfying moment. these two were lusting for each other throughout the whole book; despite bombs; despite evil plots that they were. fully aware of; despite criminally insane people surrounding them, they couldn't keep their hands off of each other.... Just don't understand writers like this. I promise you every 10 to 20 pages they are lusting after each others bodies. even when they're supposed to be quiet and hiding from the enemy they're passionate and loud. I was actually happy when it all went wrong for them. I rarely give this kind of negative review if there's just enough imagination. this author has imagination but she's clearly not getting enough and tries to live vicariously through her characters who seem utterly childish and foolish. very disappointed.
