I enjoyed reading the trilogy, although I think the first was the best of the lot. I love Stabenow's Kate Shugak character, and Star shares many of the same characteristics. The stories are an interesting take on the sci-fi genre, and the setting and background seem to be well-thought out. Stabenow also manages to work in her trademark Alaska references in a natural way, unlike the annoying habit she has of making really obvious and frequent classic sci fi references as if to say "See what I did there? I've read my Heinlein! (or fill-in-the-blank with another famous writer)."
I think these stories were some of her early writings, and it shows a bit in quality. Although I don't think they're as good as her Kate Shugak mystery novels, they're still a good way to spend a few hours of light reading.

I've read all the Kate Shugak and Liam Campbell novels and loved them. Was happy to find and read the Star Svensdotter books. Wish there were more.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
