drakan_glasses BE NICE! Fair critique is fair, but be respectful & follow the review rules. There will be no mercy.

A theft of star is a sci-fi novel. The story is solid: the storyline is clear, it isn't overly complex nor plagued with filler chapters.

The descriptions are great. They are detailled in a way that makes it easy to have very nice visuals with a little imagination. The military space operations are especially good in that regard.

The characters are mainly from New Vatica, a benevolent theocracy. Reading about the space christian church was weird at first, but it's a nice take on what governements and states can be in a sci-fi setting and it is well executed and interesting to read.

The first few chapters are confusing because of all the characters that are introduced at the same time. It gets better after a while, so I encourage to persevere.

All in all, a simple and good sci-fi novel.


Compelling Characters, Great Story, and Well-Written

Reviewed at: Chapter 14: Singers of Space

I'm thirteen chapters in and I think I'm here for the long haul. This story hooked me in right from chapter 1. It's got great characters, a mysterious, universe-threatening problem, and tons of well-implemented sci-fi ideas. Also, I personally love the whole church in space thing...it's reminiscent of Simmons's Hyperion, without being derivative. 

If you like intergalactic science-fiction, with aspects of military, space-opera, colonization, and religion, this is a good place to end up. Despite the occasional typo (common for a story that is releasing quickly to meet reader demand), it's got some of the best writing I've seen on Royal Road so far. 

I thoroughly recommend A Theft of Stars
