All the Stars Left Behind

Relocating to Arctic Norway would put a freeze on anyone’s social life. For Leda Lindgren, with her crutches and a chip on her shoulder the size of her former Manhattan home, the frozen tundra is just as boring as it sounds. Until she meets her uncle’s gorgeous employee.

Unfortunately, no matter how smoking hot the guy is, Roar comes with secrets as unnerving as his moving tattoos. And Leda doesn’t trust him.

Roar shouldn’t be drawn to the moody human girl with eyes that leave him weak in the knees. But when Leda gets shot by one of his enemies and survives, Roar finally understands why he’s drawn to her: Leda is exactly what he was sent to Earth to find. A weapon of immense power capable of saving his planet.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

I am keeping this review short because I have been review sooo many books recently and I don’t want to ‘over review’ myself and begin seeing it as a chore, also reviewing eats into my reading time. Anywhoos…
The story follows teenage Leda as she moves from Manhattan to Norway. I would class this as romantic sci-fi. The romance side starting pretty early in the book and the sci-fi making up the majority of the second half… a tale of two halves.

I found large parts of the book a bit vague and rushed; I would have like more build up to the love story and more background into the ‘aliens’. There were just so many things happening it all became a bit rushed and muddled.

However, I loved that the book addresses more serious themes;
Grief
Disability
Emotional neglect
LGBT+

I really enjoyed the supporting cast and they definitely distracted from the unfolding Insta-love.
Overall it was a good read. I did enjoy the book it was a light, run read, however with small amounts of tweaking it could have been improved massively.

Overall it was a 2.5 STAR read.
