Darken the Stars is Book #3 in the YA fantasy Kricket series by Amy A Bartol. This book is the conclusion of the story of Kricket Hollowell, a girl who escaped the foster care system on Earth but was kidnapped by Trey, a soldier of royal blood, and transported to her true home on planet Ethar. Kricket learned that her genetic ability to see the future makes her both a prize to be won and a danger to be destroyed. She and Trey fall in love, but with the clans at war, it may not be sustainable. Kricket tries to change the future but ultimately must choose whether to fight for her survival or fight for their love to survive. Kricket gets caught up in the love triangle of Trey and Kyon, but learns to manipulate and plan for the greater good of everyone on Ethar while making sure she gets to live her life on her terms with whom she wants.
Love this series for its clever alternate reality, well developed characters, and suspenseful twists and turns.
I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review of the book.
