Title: Dawn Among The Stars
Author: Samantha Heuwagen
Genre: Science Fiction
About the book: It’s the first in a series, following the perspective of three characters: Kayin, Henry, and Melissa in that respective order.
I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
First impressions: I like the premise of the novel with other beings arriving on earth. I also love the title, and the cover page reflects what the story is about.
Characters: The three characters are different with each having their own goals. What’s more, the secondary characters are likeable.
Maybe it’s just me, but Kayin, Henry, and Melissa seems younger than they actually are.
“Sometimes it is better to be disappointed than to never know at all.”
Writing: There’s a mix of description and dialogue. The world building is done well because the author doesn’t bombard readers with too much information all at once.
Even though the book follows three characters, their perspectives are written in the first person.
Final thoughts: The book wraps up many loose ends but still leaves questions to be answered in the second instalment of the series.
