    Is this how humans got ourselves into this mess? By believing that we have as much right to this planet as the Faloii? Do we think we own the galaxy? 3 1/2 stars. I really think that love for certain books can depend on the time when you read them. There would probably be times when...

    Everything about this book - the characters, plot and mystery - are all very well thought out and carefully constructed. I was definitely compelled to read and continue unraveling the secrets of Faloiv (<- no idea how to pronounce this!). I was so impressed with the world-buildin...

    Here there be monsters. A Conspiracy Of Stars is a truly imaginative novel. Beautifully crafted, this book draws the reader into another world, or rather planet, that is entirely different from our own. Yet is seems that the troubles of humanity follow, no matter how exotic the locatio...

    It seems like 2018 may be a great year for young adult novels, because it seems like almost every one I've read so far has been absolutely fantastic. A Conspiracy of Stars grabbed me initially because of the cover, and to be honest, I just went for it without reading the blurb at all. ...

    Cole's futuristic sci-fi will delight those who loved Avatar (and not for the 3D). It delves into human greed, arrogance and has themes of colonialism. The story is set in a distant planet called Faloiv, where a community of human settlers, mostly scientists get stranded, and is told f...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) This was a YA sci-fi story, set on another planet. I liked Octavia, and I liked how she kept searching for the truth even when things got hard. I also liked her friends Rondo and Alma, and ...

    "There are things that we must do as scientists" if we want to survive This has the potential to be a massive series, that I don't understand why this will be only a duology... I finished this book and I felt satisfied. Yes, satisfied. Lemme explain further: 1. I love...

    I think that this is my favorite book I've read this year. Admittedly, it's the only book I've read so far this year, but no matter. For being the first book I read in 2018, this has set the bar fairly high.  And to think that I felt a bit hesitant when picking this book up after ...

    *Actual rating 3.5 A slow burn, but a good one. A Conspiracy of Stars was only barely on my radar, but for some reason, I decided to read it ahead of even some of my more anticipated reads. It follows a girl and her people who live in a new world (literally), one they?ve ...

    Read my review on the blog HERE. Everyone and their grandma has seen Avatar (actually wait, I don?t think my grandmas have?), the James Cameron sci-fi movie about a white saviour dude who white-saves the indigenous people of a planet that humans are trying to study and colonise....

    While I was reading A Conspiracy of Stars I was thinking that this was one of the most inventive and original books I have ever read. The world-building is bizarre, yet totally works, and though I don?t have all the answers, I am thrilled to find them all out in the next book. This w...

    I have a love/hate relationship with the classic slow build. Mainly because I usually get too bored. But there are the cases where the slowness pays off in an explosive way. That ends up being the case here. Especially in the last chapter. So this is worth the read. However..suffering ...

    ?But home isn?t just a memory, I?ve decided: it?s knowledge, knowing where you belong and where you fit in.? This was a solid sci-fi story that combined all the things I want to see in my science fiction reads: compelling research, characters I connect with, and an intri...

    I liked the idea of this story, but I didn't like the execution. I thought the story was too slow. It took a long time for the story to get going. Also, I was expecting a very different type of story, which didn't help. I liked the characters, though, and the world sounded interesting,...

    I never thought I would get to relive Avatar after 9 years but this book was essentially a similarly fantastic, exotic and colorful experience. Faloiv strongly reminded me of Pandora, the strangely beautiful life form there, the humans? attempts to colonize it. I found the book inten...

    3.5 stars!!! Going into this book, I really didn't know what to expect. But from the blurb, I was pretty excited from the brief synopsis. I was looking for something which was a departure from the usual YA fantasy and I would say this novel did deliver in that regard. However, there...

    I rated this with two stars because I love Avatar. And I didn't call this a DNF because I haven't DNF a book in years, I wasn't going to start now. A Conspiracy of Stars is like reading Avatar, it's not an original plot and it was very predicable. The main character, Octavia was kind...

    2.5 stars Avatar is my favorite movie. When I heard this book reminded people of Avatar, I had to read it. Honestly, I probably would have been happy if this book was exactly like the movie. But Avatar has guns, airplanes, horses, robots, and dragons. A Conspiracy of Stars has, um, my...

    4/4.5 stars ? Woah. Firstly, I?m going to reconsider the sci-fi genre because this is the second book that I?ve really enjoyed, the first being The Diabolic . But I?m not going to say they are similar; A Conspiracy of Stars is its own definition of spectacular. ?...

    I really liked the story behind this book. I hated the lack of descriptions of all of the animals and surroundings though. You could tell the views were amazing from how the characters acted when they saw these creatures, but most of the time all the reader got was a color or a purpose...
