I thought this book was going to be out in March as the other books, so I went happily to read the second one And what happened I was left on a cliff hanger But I thought Oh, it s okay, you only have to wait a few weeks It won t be so harsh Today I discover that the book is due in October October My life has no meaning._.

And the simplicity of much of the writing, like Liam rolled over There are resort drifts he asked sleepily I wanna go Then he snored. And Ren scoffed Stars Figured we d run into an utter cog, Ren said. Lots of asked or said I don t know what happened, maybe the author was stressed or maybe they swapped editors or something Something had to have happened, because the writing took an abrupt shift.Did Asher and Ren have to always be touching Like, everytime they re in a room together, they re touching, holding hands, leaning against each other, pulling, making out Dear lord, I just wanted one scene where they were together in the same room and didn t feel the urge to be touching I get it, they re in love They re in a relationship I understand But this feltlike the author was trying to remind us over and over and over again they were involved romantically, as if we had somehow forgotten Which I didn t need They ve had a thing for each other since the first book and it only grew in the second book I have no problems believing they re head over heels for one another But in this book, something about how it was written feltoff I guess this too buckles down to the issue I have with the writing.The final battle felt kind oflackluster view spoiler Even the fact that Ren was a supernova, destined to metaphorically explode on himself in the battle against Millicent, fell short The battle literally lasts for less than two pages The final battle, the final confrontation, lasts less than TWO PAGES hide spoiler I don t know how I feel about the ending I really don t view spoiler I mean, it s great everyone got their happy ending And I mean EVERYONE But it felt too perfect Too easily obtained hide spoiler In the first two books, there were struggles and fights to get just little snippets of happiness or freedom, and that s what made those books so great to me In this book There s a lot of having our gang plan things, but when it comes to said situations actually happening, they re brief and justmeh What is the point of chapters and chapters of having the gang map out these elaborate plans and gather information, only for the actual thing to take less than a chapter when it goes down There s a grand build up only for it to puff out in a blink.Millicent Was she really this big bad threat We re told of all these things she s doing, we saw what she was capable of in the last book, she s treated like the main antagonist, but she s literally taken care of in less than two pages and I m just goingthat s itShe didn t feel like much of a threat.Darby I love this girl I swear I do But, uh, what was the point of her character She didn t really contribute anything someone else couldn t have done instead.I don t know I still liked this book, but it s not a favorite and I m really heartbroken about it For a series I adored, I wanted to be left feeling somethingthan what I do for the final installment So if you ve been following my blog you might have read the reviews for The Star Host and Ghost Ashes, also by F.T Lukens Zenith Dream, is the third and final book in the trilogy and while it is good it doesn t quite deliver like the first two books in the installment do.First, the first two books in the series are arguably really enjoyable You combine science fiction tyranny, adventure, love, space, and rebel organizations and you have a culminating concoction of interest and intrigue Ha So if you ve been following my blog you might have read the reviews for The Star Host and Ghost Ashes, also by F.T Lukens Zenith Dream, is the third and final book in the trilogy and while it is good it doesn t quite deliver like the first two books in the installment do.First, the first two books in the series are arguably really enjoyable You combine science fiction tyranny, adventure, love, space, and rebel organizations and you have a culminating concoction of interest and intrigue Having left off Ghost Ashes as a cliffhanger I was super pumped and exhilarated to return to Asher, Ren, and the whole crew of the Star Stream and while we did return to these beloved characters I did feel like there was one major problem with the novel pacing.Asher, Ren, Penelope, and the others are still characterized well and written cleanly and with care, but the timing of the book felt long and strangely off kilter to me The beginning was stretched and drawn out and to be very candid, nothing of much substance happened Ren manages to pick up another stray in the form of Darby, who I found annoying but begrudgingly likable Lukens seems to be very good at this , but I still despise when an author introduces an important character in the very last installment Ren and the others manage to rescue Asher and I anticipated some intense therapy and discussion for these two lovebirds seeing as they spent a majority of Ghost Ashes fighting, but they seemed to get over their argument as if it had been a molehill instead of the mountain book two perceived it to be.In addition, I disliked how the main villain of the series ended up being Millicent, the other Star Host, as she never seemed that dangerous to me and her motives seemed weak and unsupported compared to people like Vos or other tyrants.The beginning and middle muddled together as line after line talked about what previously happened and then I realized there were thirty pages of the book left and literally nothing had been resolved Like actually zero content had been fixed So the last thirty pages was a messy rush of furious activity, poorly written action scenes, and a rushed epilogue that halfway delivers on what I want but still left me dissatisfied and insatiable.This series was always a guilty pleasure of mine, The Bachelor in book form you might say, but the ending did not hold a candle to the charm and the uniqueness of the first two and the rushed conclusion makes it seem like a waste of time and a hurried homage to characters that deserved better.Recommendation Read the first two books in the series, The Star Host and Ghost Ashes, and then read my reviews and comment and then return to this blog to read this short synopsis on the third book instead of wasting valuable money and valuable time on a conclusion that does t deliver.Score 5 10 Thanks to the publisher for providing a DRC of Zenith Dream in exchange for an honest review.I m

everyone including this book s plethora of side characters has developped into unique, realistic feeling personalities and relationships.Speaking of, Asher Ren have one of my absolute favourite sci fi relationships to date Watching them develop and grow together was an absolute delight and I d definitely recommend this if you re looking for a star wars esc queer sci fi trilogy I couldn t _not_ read

with wonderful, touching moments between our two favorite main characters, driving the story from encounter to encounter It s both an exciting and touching conclusion to the series, and I m very glad to have experienced these stories.Looking forward to a reread somewhere down the line I really liked how the trilogy ended, and that epilogue was everything One scene maybe was a bit rushed, in my opinion, but othet than that, I really really liked how the characters grew, how they were there for each other, trusting their choices and opinions, and calling each other out if they were being dumb.Perfect found family plus a new character addition that I thought was going to cause drama, but instead was great I wantbooks by Lukens, right now I can t believe I didn t know this was out when it was and I m glad I rectified that grave error What a way to end a story I ve been emotionally invested in since the beginning As happy as I was with the book, I m considering starting a petition to demand seven books instead of three Ah well, at least we have a potential Rules sequel to look forward to GimmeFT Ooooh my stars What a finale to a brilliant series Not only does the story pick up the pace, on every level, but it gives me an appetite forEven as it wraps up in the most satisfactory way Broken Moon is one hell of a scifi powerhouse which should totally be translated into a show, Netflix, get on it and my scifi heart belongs to F.T Lukens forever and to the stars and back. The best sci fi trilogy I ve ever had the experience of holding very close to my heart And that s exactly what I did before shelving this last book Thank you to F.T Lukens for giving life to such a story, I am so happy to have lived in it.
