My Thoughts

I read this in 3 days but really I could have read it in one. Summer seems to be reading slump time for me. However that isn’t against the book, i’ve just been doing other things. I had heard so much hype for this book, and now i’m adding to it because this book was amazing and imo truly deserves the hype!

It’s one weird world with crazy different alien species. Yes, this book can be strange, but it’s still so impactful. It’s moving, full of emotion, thought-provoking and made me feel like it was clenching my heart and yes, made me cry, on more than one occasion, and all that in a fast-paced graphic novel!

Alana and Marko are from 2 different worlds, well sort of. Alana is from landfall, a large planet, while Marko is from Wreath, it’s moon thing. Their worlds have been at war for as long as anyone can remember, but because the destruction of one would cause the other to spin out of orbit they’ve brought the war to the entire galaxy.

Alana and Marko end up having a little girl, and as you can imagine that does not sit well with people! They just want to keep their little girl safe, and trying to do that is no easy task when people want them dead!

It manages to hit on so many different themes, I really should have been taking notes. It hits on so many important messages, even ones you wouldn’t think of for this story. I don’t want to spoil anything anyway, this is a book you just have to experience for yourself!

I fell in love with the characters. They have their own stories, their own opinions based on how they were raised and what they believe in, their own personalities and flaws. I can't wait to get the rest of the volumes to see where this story goes!


  1. Eeep, I'd SO like to read this!! I hear people rave about it all the time but it's not at my library so I never got around to it. I'm so glad the characters are amazing and you loved it though!

  2. :D I loved it so much! Thank you. If you get around to it I hope you enjoy it too. Thank you taking the time to read my review and comment. :)
