Under Different Stars (Kricket, #1) by Amy A. Bartol

Under Different Stars  - Amy A. Bartol

I blame the cover. It’s so… pretty, but also... so misleading.

My main issue: the lead is just sooo perfect in EVERY way. She’s so perfect, in fact that … how many people fall for her again? I forget.

Anyway, she’s so perfect that she’s rendered forgettable to me… yet they ALL fall for her. So she’s the center of so many things because… well, just because. Then enter a couple of super male hulking types who battle each other out for her… because... well, again... just because

Then there’s that other thing: of an alien world with a language that’s laughable in how made-up it came across. It was trying for a sci-fi feel given the aliens and dimensions and what-not, but forgot to deal with the “sci” part of things.
