From The Stars by C.S. Wilde

Series: The Dimension Series

Book #: 1

Genre: New Adult, Science Fiction, Romance

My Rating: 3.75 hearts

Cover Rating: 2.5/5 stars

Synopsis:

For her, he’ll go to the edges of the universe.

James Bauman’s life flipped 180 degrees when he fell in love with Miriam Haworth, the most incredibly amazing woman he’s ever met. If only she were human, things would be a lot easier. If only she were human, things would be a lot easier.

Miriam cannot love, but this won’t stop her from trying. She must be careful, though. Strong emotions are forbidden in the Whisar Empire. If the council discovers that she’s trying to fall in love with an earthling, they’ll pull her heart out. Literally.

James will do everything in his power to show Miriam what love is, but if he succeeds, the wrath of an ancient alien race might crash upon him… and doom Miriam forever.

My Thoughts:

Right off the bat you meet the two main characters, James and Miriam, or “Mir”, like the space station. He’s an IT guy and first meets Mir when he’s called to set up her computer. Little does he know, Mir is not exactly what she seems.

Each chapter is told from a different characters’ perspective, which wasn’t confusing at all and you knew within a sentence or two who was narrating the chapter.

This was a fun read, although I didn’t quite connect with the characters as much as I normally like to. It has nothing to do with the writing, which was really good, I just didn’t feel the connection. C.S. Wilde sure knows how to tell a story and since this is just the first book, I look forward to what’s next in this series.

While I didn’t completely fall in love with it, I really liked it a lot and would recommend it to anyone who loves a sci-fi romance with quirky characters.

About

I’m obsessed with books. I have been since the 3rd grade, which was a LONG time ago! I also create book related products and I design book covers. When I’m not doing the above mentioned things, I enjoy watching far too much TV, collecting Funko Pops, spending time with my family and crazy animals, and working on my very first novel.
