Book Review: Navigating the Stars by Maria V. Snyder

Finally catching up on a book from a favorite author that had been on my TBR for over a year.  This one was a lot of fun!

Navigating the Stars (Sentinels of the Galaxy #1)

Paperback, 455 pages
Published November 19th 2018 by Harlequin
So, I stayed up to 2am to finish this book and can’t believe I didn’t try to read it closer to its release! The pacing and plot were so compelling that I finished this book in 3 days, staying up late each time because I couldn’t find a natural break where I wanted to stop reading. Luckily, book two is coming out in a couple of weeks! Which gives all of you time to read this one, so you’re ready for Chasing the Shadows.  Trust me, you’ll want to pick up Chasing as soon as you turn the final page in Navigating.  While there isn’t a huge cliffhanger, Maria knows how to keep the mystery and adventure fresh through the end.

Quick aside, I love how perfect the titles are for these two books!  If I told you why, that would spoil a couple of things, so you’ll just have to see for yourself.  I think you’ll agree though!

Basically if you love historical mysteries, space adventures, mischief, and hate-to-love relationships, then I only have one question for you: why haven’t you read this book yet?!

Bonus points: if you enjoyed The Illuminae Files or Aurora Rising, then you should definitely put this one to the top of your TBR!

Navigating the Stars


Terra Cotta Warriors have been discovered on other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. And Lyra Daniels’ parents are the archaeological Experts (yes with a capital E) on the Warriors and have dragged her to the various planets to study them despite the time dilation causing havoc with her social life.

When one of the many Warrior planets goes silent, and looters attack her research base, Lyra becomes involved in discovering why the Warriors were placed on these planets. And, more importantly, by who.

As a point of interest, the ebook for Navigating the Stars has been discounted, starting today and lasting through the release of Chasing the Shadows.  It’s only $1.99 on your favorite platform!  Totally worth it!  Or if you prefer a hard copy, the US version is $2 off the normal price for the same period, making it only $15.95.
