Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 283 - The Stars Now Unclaimed by Drew Williams, The Phantom Tree by Nicola Cornick

The Stars Now Unclaimed (The Universe After, #1)The Stars Now Unclaimed by Drew Williams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Something happened years ago and the galaxy changed. Before there were endless wars and the Pulse was supposed to story them. It did stop some but not all. Enter the Justified and Jane Kamali. They are trying to stop the Pulse from returning and doing more damage. The world building and back story are all excellent. There are also some interesting characters. While Jane is the main characters the group around her are well developed and diverse. The plot line follows an attack that is repelled but the ending leaves plenty of room for future stories set in The Universe After.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a fun mix of history and fantasy. It follows two women from the same time period - one who stayed and one who came into the future. It was a little slow in the beginning as it had to establish both world building and back story of the two main characters. Their lives are intertwined even as they are separated by hundreds of years. A interesting take on one character who disappeared from history when she was two and another who comes from the authors imagination.
