"Bright Star," by Nickie Anderson - highly-praised Sci-Fi

This Sci-Fi mystery / adventure has earned high praise for its "cool, fluid writing," and "crescendoing action." It's our spotlight book today at $1.99!

"From the first chapter to the last, Bright Star shines bright with a winning heroine and compelling plot line. Every step of the way, I found myself cheering on Sadira, discovering the mysteries and intrigue of her dystopian world along with her. The descriptions of Sadira's world nearly gave me a sunburn as Sadira makes her way through her harsh landscape." -- Tyrean, Amazon reviewer

"Everything is so gritty and dry, and Anderson does a great job giving the prose that feel." -- Christina (Ensconced in YA)

"She's a believable and likable heroine." -- Mary A. Jenkins

Bright Star, by Nickie Anderson

It's bad enough that Sadira Pascal's father doesn't make it home to celebrate her fifteenth birthday. He might be a busy hovership engineer pulling overtime on a new design, but he's always been home for the important things. It's worse when she discovers her father decided to ride on the maiden voyage of his newest ship, the CAS Bright Star, without even telling her. But things really fall apart during Sadira's field trip with her class to observe the hovership launch. Instead of a successful flight, she watches the Bright Star fall out of the sky.

The Central government confirms her father's death, leaving Sadira to pick up the pieces of her former life. While she struggles with her loss, Private Baruj Haddad tries to convince her that her father and the rest of the Bright Star crew are still alive. At first, Sadira doesn't believe there's any hope. But then she stumbles across a message that makes her think maybe, just maybe, her father is still alive. As she digs deeper into the Bright Star's crash, Sadira uncovers secrets about her father's work, secrets that put her and everyone she loves in danger.
