"In a time when books are so often drawn into series, this installment leaves you begging for more. A great science fiction/fantasy addition to any library collection."--School Library Journal "This fascinating work of science fiction explores the interactions between humans and aliens, with humans as the aggressors, prone to violence with a short-sighted 'humans first' mentality that does not bode well for their continued existence on their host planet. Impressive worldbuilding, well-developed characters, and nonstop action."--Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) "Heart rates of readers will rise as Cole methodically weaves answers into the story, all the while throwing more questions into the mix."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A Conspiracy of Stars takes you on a thrilling journey filled with cool science, amazing monsters, and vivid, lovable characters. It strikes that perfect balance of great storytelling and hard truthtelling. Jump in and enjoy the ride!"--Daniel Jos Older, New York Times bestselling author of Shadowshaper "This fantastical read is home to exceptional world building that is intricate and lush, and vivid, well drawn characters. Its sci-fi elements...plunge readers into a mysterious, futuristic world that they will be reluctant to leave. A stellar, captivating start."--Booklist (starred review) "Olivia A. Cole constructs a future world that is both fascinating and terrifying, hooking you immediately. Octavia's mission unearths painful truths about the relationships between power, responsibility, and indigenous sovereignty. This book grabs your heart and will haunt you long after. A must-read!"--Dhonielle Clayton, author of The Belles and the Tiny Pretty Things series
