Title: Steal The Stars
Author: Nat Cassidy
Genre: Science Fiction, Romance, Young Adult, New Adult
Dakota “Dak” Prentiss guards the biggest secret in the world.
They call it “Moss.” It’s your standard grey alien from innumerable abduction stories. It still sits at the controls of the spaceship it crash-landed eleven years ago. A secret military base was built around the crash site to study both Moss and the dangerous technology it brought to Earth.
The day Matt Salem joins her security team, Dak’s whole world changes.
It’s love at first sight—which is a problem, since they both signed ironclad contracts vowing not to fraternize with other military personnel. If they run, they’ll be hunted for what they know. Dak and Matt have only way to be together: do the impossible. Steal Moss and sell the secret of its existence.
And they can’t afford a single mistake.
I love anything science fiction.. and I grew up watching X-Files etc so I was really intrigued to read this book. Aliens, extra terrestrials beings… who wouldn’t want to read about it right?!
I have a confession to make, I waited a while to review this book….. why? because I wanted to listen to the Podcast. Steal The Stars in based on a Podcast by Mac Rogers and I really wanted to listen to it first before I reviewed it.Why? Cause I got bored half way reading the book. If you really want to read this book, i’d suggest you listen to the Podcast instead.
Don’t get me wrong.. This book wasn’t bad… I love the whole concept of the book- The secret facility, the love story between Dak and Matt… I loved it! But I just found the whole book to drag on ..and I found Dak’s ‘inner-monologues’ to be …hmmm…how should I put it? I just wanted to roll my eyes.
This whole review is sounding so weird but I am torn.. Loved the Podcast… the book?Not so much. which is weird cause it’s basically the same thing (almost) but the experience was entirely different for me. That being said, I wouldn’t have loved the Podcast as much if I hadn’t read the book first because the Podcast does leave some information hanging (But if you’ve read the book, you know it all).
Note: The whole narration is done by Dak.. and I have a love/hate thing going on with all her “You said’s”. It a different style of writing for me and I’m not sure whether I like it or not. I gave it 4 stars because of the Podcast.
