Review: Starbound by SE Anderson
I began reading this series earlier this year and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the latest installment! If you're new to the series, start with Starstruck and get ready for an adventure! Get Starstruck here
About the Book
Home is where the heart is. Or maybe the pizza.
There’s no better feeling than being back home after a long week exploring the galaxy, though being abandoned by one’s friends and left to fend off a glitching evil robot spoils it. All that’s left is to settle back into life, preparing Marcy’s wedding and job hunting. If only mysterious midnight SWAT teams and crop-circle crafting-sessions weren't constantly getting in Sally’s way.
When an old foe returns, and Sally is the only person on the planet to recognize it, it’s up to her, her sullen ex, and an overly-excitable FBI agent to save the planet. But first they have to get the president safely out of his favorite sushi bar without starting the war of the worlds.
It’s hard maintaining a long-distance relationship when your crush is light years away and thinks you died of old age, but that hasn’t stopped anyone yet. Sally must save the planet, the universe, and herself - though maybe she’ll take a nap first.
If you know anything about me, you know I like space and I like humor and when you put humor IN space I'm clearing my calendar and we're doing this. S. E. Anderson's Starstruck series not only puts humor on a rocket ship and launches it into space, she's also crafted a spectacular plot full of intrigue, adventure, harrowing moments, and just the right amount of romantic tension.
This book seriously rewards readers who pay attention. It's the fifth in the series and it answers a lot of questions that have been building up, making it a satisfying read.
If you love space, slow-burn romance, and off-the-wall adventure with well rounded and lovable characters, please read this amazing series. I hate to use the phrase "page-turner" but I don't usually read a book in a day. I've read every single installation of this series in a day. I'm a busy gal! I just couldn't tear myself away.
It is my pleasure to introduce a new character from Starbound! Dave from Accounting. He's a little sassy, a little confused about his origins, and a LOT of fun. Also, he's a spaceship. And he's gorgeous:
