Firmament: Gestern Review



When I heard about this book's release, I knew immediately I had to be part of the action. The previous books in this series were wonderful, and this book didn't disappoint.

About the Book

You never escape your past
Andi Lloyd is more comfortable than most with interstellar travel, but she's not prepared for the perils and peculiarities of a world she has all but forgotten—the planet Earth. As the Surveyor undergoes repairs, her brother August receives a message with news that will send both of them across the world to a place he never wanted to visit again.

Neither of them are prepared to be thrust into a world of political intrigue amid the tangled forests and crumbling ruins of Austria. They aren't prepared to encounter wild animals and endure cross-country hikes. And they definitely aren't prepared to face it all alone.

But despite the dangers they must press on into the unknown to find a way to save Andi's life, to decide the fate of Earth itself—and to rescue a lonely girl who just happens to be their little sister.

About the Author

J. Grace Pennington has been telling stories since she could talk and writing them down since age five. Now she lives in the great state of Texas, where she writes as much as adult life permits. When she's not writing she enjoys reading good books, having adventures with her husband, and looking up at the stars.

Review

   When I received my ARC, I immediately scrapped my plans for the day and curled up with this book. By the end of the day, I had finished it, and was left with a serious book hangover. IT WAS JUST SO GOOD!
   The book starts out surprisingly slowly, but picks up soon, and ends with quite a few cliffhangers. This book had a different feel from the others, as it was set almost wholly on Earth.
   I'm struggling with writing a coherent review. I don't think I'll quite manage it. So prepare yourself for fangirling.
   It was so good. It was so exciting and oh, the poor characters. Ursula was adorable and cute, August was tortured and sweet, and Andi was brave and too trusting and SPOILER she's dying... END SPOILER 
   This book was really amazing, and everyone needs to read it immediately.
   And now I really need the next book...
