Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 356 - Navigating the Stars by Maria V. Snyder, A Cowboy's Choice by Vicki Lewis Thompson

Navigating the StarsNavigating the Stars by Maria V. Snyder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This has an unusual concept. Remember the life-sized terracotta Warriors found in China. Well what if we find them when we go to space and what if they are on more than on planet. That is the main plot point in Navigating the Stars. Lyra Daniel has to follow her parents from planet to planet as they study the Warriors. Each time she leaves friends behind, not only in space but in time. I loved all of the different concepts in Navigating the Stars. The two young adults carried the story but they are backed up by a great cast of secondary characters. There is plenty of danger and tension in the story. Also some unexpected surprises as the plot unfolds. Great world building and back story as this sets up the Sentinels of the Galaxy series.

What can go wrong when you decide to skip the dating and go right to spending a weekend together. Well seems like a lot. Brendan Sawyer has come home and one reason is Jo Fielding. Jo hates dating and thinks a weekend together will tell if they are compatible or not. Of course all kinds of things go wrong even as some go right. I liked the fact that this one featured older characters and that they find their HEA. This is a fun series the next book looks like even more fun as a relative comes over the pond to hide from his actions.
