Starflight a Sneak Peek on Reading List



Goodreads Summary:

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world—and each other—the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe...



Sneak Peek:

"As soon as the words left his mouth several things happened at once.  Lara whipped around to face him, jerking her hair from his grasp.   Their eyes widened and locked.  And Doran remembered everthing."   p 68








Initial Thoughts

The ideas of family in this book are very interesting as Solara longs to be part of a real family - her desire to belong and be loved drive her, and she knows it.  For a young lady that is not typical, which makes this an interesting read.  Doran's story just adds to concepts of family and belonging as he is a complete opposite of Solara. While this is clearly science fiction, the concepts of belonging hold true - I am so interested in finding out what happens with these characters as they search for answers across universes.
