    I've heard a lot about this author in the past, and always meant to read them. But I never did get the chance. When the opportunity to read this one popped up, I jumped on the chance. The science fiction aspect was what really grabbed me. I can tell you that I was not disappointed at a...

    Of course I'm going to give my own book 5 stars! ;) This is a new SF series - as if you couldn't tell from that gorgeous cover!! I had so much fun writing this book - Lyra's voice is so strong and she has this new kind of snark. She just refuses to be ignored. Another thing I love is t...

    I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Navigating the Stars has such a cool premise: China?s infamous terracotta warriors are discovered throughout space, and it?s a mystery as to who created them. Throw in some cool hacking, space travel, and time d...

    The bad thing about starting a new series as soon as it comes out, is waiting for the rest, because this book was sooooooooooooooooo good!! It did have romance (bleh) but it wasn't too typical and was a slow thing rather than an inst-thing, thankfully!! The story was great, the cha...

    NAVIGATING THE STARS is an exciting beginning to this new SciFi series from this bestselling author! The characters are fully drawn and easy to relate to, while the story is compelling from beginning to end. Full of intrigue, danger, family, and romance makes for a perfect story for Sc...

    Come on U.K. publishers why have none of you picked this up yet?? I guess I?ll just have to give my money to someone else because no way am I missing this series! Book Depository to the rescue, I?ve ordered the Aussie version! https://www.bookdepository.com/Naviga... All I'm ...

    Let it be known that Maria V. Snyder is one of my all time favorite writers and I was positively ecstatic when she told me she was writing a new book! Imagined my devastation when I heard that her US publisher didn't want it, luckily there's the Aussie and New Zealand one that helped t...

    Very, very few books send me into an "Oh-No, what the hell will I read next? It's gonna be hard to follow that one..." panic when I finish them. This is one of those books. I want to be clear here - this is not ... I want the next book in the series NOW! I do ... but that is d...

    I LOVED this book! Normally sci-fi isn't my first choice of tea, but I got sucked into this one really quickly. Snyder foreshadows things SO well, and I was routing for just about every character I met. XD There's such fantastic mystery woven through this, and I'm DYING for book two to...

    Oh my stars! I bloody loved that. It?s 4:09am. I just finished. I have to get up early for work in a few short hours. Do I regret it? Not even a little, tiny bit. I can?t give justice to what I?m feeling or thinking right now. Just read it. READ IT! So I love Maria V. Snyd...

    I've never actually read any of Snyder's fantasy books, but I quite enjoyed Inside Out/Outside In, so I am BEYOND excited to read another of her sci-fi books which, by the way, I didn't know existed until it turned up in the mail! ...

    Nowthat was surprisingly awesome! Why surprising? Well, I struggled at the start. My biggest hurdle? Physics. I'm more of a biology nerd and never quite reached the same level of "ahh, I get it" with physics. My brain couldn't fully immerse itself in the story while part of it was...

    Normally I love Maria V. Snyder books, but this one just didn't do much for me. I thought the main character Lyra, was very immature and the book just kept repeating with her doing the same things over and over like I was stuck on Lyra's groundhog day. She wormed, got found out but dis...

    Trigger warnings: violence, death of a friend. So it's probably no secret by now that archaeology in space ticks basically all of my boxes. And in the case of Unearthed, I was hooked from page 1 and loved every second of it. The premise of this - terracotta warriors are found on pla...

    Check out Happy Indulgence Books for more reviews! As my first Maria V. Snyder book, I was quite disappointed, especially since the blurb promised an exploration of Terracotta warriors in space (which reminded me of Unearthed)! The sci-fi elements flew over my head, particularly...

    I am a huge fan of Synder?s Ixia Chronicles and her Outside In series, so when I heard she was writing a new sci-fi novel I knew I just had to read it. I am so glad that HarperCollins Australia went ahead with publishing - yay Australia! Navigating the Stars is full of adventure, awe...

    3.5 stars I've read two other series by this author (Healer and Study), so when I saw she had started a new series I of course gave it a try. This time she went the route of going more YA and also switched to sci-fi instead of her usual fantasy. While I still overall enjoyed the...

    This review was originally posted on The Moonlight Library Although I prefer to read fantasy these days, sci-fi was actually my first love (please don't tell my fantasy books). I've read and loved almost all of Snyder's books, including her original sci-fi Inside Out, so I was prett...

    This book was absolutely amazing. This is Maria V Snyder?s first attempt at Sci-fi so I curious about how it would be. Absolutely no need to worry. Lyra and Niall were both such an interesting pair to follow. Lyra just kept doing bad things but for the right reasons. She was also...

    This new series is quite a departure from Snyder?s Poison Study books. This is SF rather than F and, with a seventeen-year-old protagonist, definitely YA. But Snyder brings her usual attention to detail in world-building and characterization to make this newest venture a very satisfy...

    Actual rating 3.5 Navigating the Stars started off, in my opinion, a little weak. For starters, it's VERY young, and the MC is very much an angsty teen. While this is clearly what Snyder was going for, it just didn't quite do it for me. However, once we were aboard the star ship eve...

    I seriously didn't know if I would love this book - YA sci-fi is so hit or miss for me (and I've come across far more misses), but she delivered. The characters were great, humorous and read like real people. I loved getting to see some adult characters in the book playing major parts ...

    Navigating the Stars was brilliant! An amazing 5-star read, one of my favourites for this year! It was an Indiana Jones space adventure with dark twists, amazing characters and a supremely swoon worthy romance. If you love adventure, romance and a little bit of mystery wrapped up in sp...

    Yes! A new book by Maria V. Snyder. And sci-fi at that! Nothing can surpass my love for Poison Study series, but hoping this one will be close second! Love the cover! It's one of the best from all Snyder's works. ...

    As soon as I saw Maria V. Snyder has another book coming out I knew I had to have it, so I was over the moon when I found out i had been approved for an ARC!! Maria is one of my favourite authors and she really has a way of making you connect and feel like you're walking in the main...

    I'm a great fan of Maria V. Snyder's fantasy books so I was excited to see what she would do in the YA sci-fi genre and she didn't disappoint. This was a fun and clever story with plenty of action, witty banter and likeable characters. The story follows 17 year old Lyra Daniels as s...

    I never thought there is going to be a time I?m gonna say that I prefer sci-fi over fantasy. I like this so much better than Maria V. Snyder?s fantasy books. Only, I regret reading it now cuz it?s going to be torture waiting for the next book. ...
