When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday she thought it was going to be a normal day. She thought of donuts, coffee, and laughter. She did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try and woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn’t an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore the Cosmos chose her for a reason and it isn’t keen on letting her go until she finishes what it started over ten years ago. Something tried to destroy it and now Diana isn’t just worried about her heart, she is worried about her life.
First things first…. IT FREAKING HAS CATS! I guess that by this you are now all aware that I love cats, and this book has cats, like a lot of them and they talk! Ah! I love it! It made me think about Salem from Sabrina the Teenage Witch that I happened to be re-watching…
This book has a lot of imagination. It’s a sci-fi novel passed literally in space where there are many planets and species. We get to know some of them since our main character, Diana is the bearer of the Cosmos. The only thing is that she doesn’t know how that happened – how that bracelet appeared in her arm and doesn’t get out – and for sure she doesn’t want that. She just wants to get her normal life back.
This was a really fun read. I really enjoyed seeing the main character trying to solve the mystery but even better was the end because I wasn’t expecting it to be so surprising! It was so sweet and yet hard… So different from what I was imagining it would be….
I really liked the main character but my favorite has to be Dimar. He was so freaking… sexy? I think that describes him. In my mind, he was definitely sexy. I kinda saw him as Raysand from ACOTAR. Don’t know exactly why but I did. He just has that dangerous yet sensitive personality…
But our main character also really surprised me. She was so decisive, friendly and just purely nice. She tried her best in everything she did and she cared for the persons around her. But there’s a lot of characters in this book and a lot of them are fun and interesting. Like Kal Zed!
I really liked the writing and I think it was really well balanced. This book has humor, tension, action and a lot of creativity. It had tons of twists and it although I felt it was in a certain way a light read, it was also realistic-ly feeling. Yeah I know, you guys must think I’m crazy… This book is full of aliens, how is it realistic?! Well, for instance, the main character was definitely human, plus she was really easy to connect with. I felt that I really understood her. I have no idea what I would have done if I was her, but she aced it!
This book is about choices, trust, and choosing your own path. It gives a new thought about what freedom really is. I mean she was to be the bearer of the Cosmos, that’s something big and many would have said yes and got all that power. But is that sensible? Is that a better life? Power comes with responsibility. Aren’t we allowed to make our own destiny?
This was a light and fun sci-fi read with a lot of action and CATS! Yeah.. I’m still mesmerized by those. Sci-fi is definitely not my favorite genre but I would still recommend this even if it isn’t yours because this book is easily enjoyed anyway.
