Amid Stars and Darkness (A YA Book Review)
Amid Stars and Darkness by Chani Lynn Feener
This is the first book in the Xenith Trilogy and follows Earthling Delaney Grace as she is mistaken for the princess of Xenith and taken from Earth, along with the inevitable fallout.
I really enjoyed this book! It was light-hearted with great banter, but then also had an action-filled plot (let's just say not everyone is a fan of the princess). I kept turning pages needing to know what happened. The quasi-villain Trystan has major Darkling vibes, but I'm definitely a fan of the main love interest, Ander (Commander) Ruckus. That's actually how I came across this book... Chani contacted my candle shop for a custom order of Ruckus and Trystan candles. Naturally, after hearing the two hotties are aliens, and knowing what they smelled like, I had to read the book! And I'm very happy I did because it was a fun read. Full disclosure, the epilogue ends on a cliffhanger so if you're like me and normally wait for all the books to come out because of this, you've been warned. This book is a solid 4 stars for me (to give context my five stars are reserved for books that alter my very existence) and I need the next book in this series like yesterday.
