Summary: When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday she thought it was going to be a normal day. She thought of donuts, coffee, and laughter. She did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try and woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn’t an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore the Cosmos chose her for a reason and it isn’t keen on letting her go until she finishes what it started over ten years ago. Something tried to destroy it and now Diana isn’t just worried about her heart, she is worried about her life.
– MY REVIEW –
I was very excited to read this book because the premise sounded really interesting! It sounded like it would be something like Jupiter Ascending, and I was somewhat right! What this story turned out being was like a mix of Sailor Moon, Doctor Who, and Jupiter Ascending, which I thought was pretty cool.
I liked that the story dove right into the plot rather than taking forever to set the scene. I generally like getting right into the action, so that was great. One of the first things I noticed was also that Munson has an incredible imagination, and that she knows how to describe the things she imagines in a very effective manner. What I also noticed, however, was that some of the word choices and phrasing were a little awkward. But that is nothing that couldn’t be fixed with a little more editing! It wasn’t a very big downside to this book, all in all.
The settings and different alien races were very interesting to read about, and I was fairly entertained even during scenes where not much was actually happening. And speaking of nothing happening, I found that the first half of the book was fairly fast-paced, but then that things kind of slowed down when I wanted the pace to remain the same. The material within the majority of the last quarter of the book felt a little like filler to me, almost like those episodes of a TV show that you really enjoy and want to skip to get to where the major plot picks up speed again, but can’t bring yourself to skip in the end (if that makes sense).
The romance plot, which I was most excited about regarding this book, since the plot mainly focuses on Diana and her suitors (so you would have to assume there’s romance, right?) also needed a bit of refining. I think that there is a very good base there for quite the epic love plot, but that for some reason it didn’t quit achieve…what I hoped it would.
That being said, the romance plot, as well as the plot as a whole were interesting enough to hold my attention and to want to know what will happen to all of the characters next! I would definitely read the sequel if there ever is one, and I will be recommending this book to those who I think it would be a good fit for!
