The Blurb:
In the sequel to Starflight, we rejoin the crew of the Banshee. This time, however, we get to focus on our favourite political refugees, Cassia and Kane.

The Nitty-Gritty:
This is the second book in the Starflight series. Starfall is filled with just as much action, crime, and lawlessness as the first book in the series. It reads like an episode of Firefly (which, if you haven’t watched Firefly, go find it on Netflix. It’s just one season and it’s totally worth your time). This installment focuses on Cassia and Kane and the political disaster on their homeworld of Eturia. We meet new characters, travel to new planets, and uncover even bigger conspiracies.

All this being said, this book was so heterosexual it hurt a little bit. Every single interaction between two characters of different genders had to be thick with sexual tension. Whether it was imagining men shirtless, or being distracted by a curvy figure, everyone was so heterosexually charged. It was a bit excessive.

The Verdict:
Starfall was a fun read, with a high energy, fast-paced plot. I found a lot of the “romance” quite cringy, but it wasn’t so painful that it completely derailed the story.
