Starflight by Melissa Landers

Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

What a cover! The plot sounds like fun too. But mostly - wow, what a cover!

Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world--and each other--the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe... 


  1. I almost used Starflight for my WoW this week. The cover is what grabbed my attention right away too! It does sound like such an awesome book, though.

  2. I agree such a gorgeous cover! And I love how its kind of the "tale as old as time" but set in SPACE! :D

  3. I love the setting. Thanks for the introduction. I am adding it to my TBR.

  4. I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds amazing! I can't wait for it!

  6. I'll be honest, the cover and start of this description didn't really grab me, I thought it was going to be another teen romance, especially with that publisher. But by the time I'd finished reading the blurb, I actually really wanted to read it! I'm a bit disappointed it doesn't come out until next year now.
