BLOODSTAINED SKIES is gritty science fiction written by an author who truly loves her characters and her story. This is a tale of war between an established force and rebel factions, as a leader, Antares, fights to free his planet from the control of the Union, and a privileged young girl, Cerridwen, who gets caught up in the middle. What I liked: the battle scenes were very nicely described. Much thought was given into describing detail of what was occurring, and this was where the novel really shined. I’m a longtime Star Wars reader and the technical sci fi descriptions here were top notch. There were also many illustrations included throughout the book, some of characters (I liked those especially), and some of little details of worldbuilding, and I thought that was a really nice touch that especially adds to the reading experience for sci fi fans. What I struggled slightly with: the plot and the way characters are introduced felt disorganized at the beginning which led to me being confused what was going on at times. Plot wise, it didn’t feel like A led to B led to C in a methodical way. Overall, this was a great sci fi read, with a few small flaws. 4/5 stars.

This was not my favorite. I could see where the story could be interesting, but the editing on it was not particularly well done. As an example, sometimes a character over the course of a couple of short paragraphs would be referred to by a name, a pronoun, the name of their race, the name of their planet, and what side of the conflict they were on. It was confusing to say the least.

I also didn't necessarily find the main character all that likeable.

There's something there, but... it's not for me.½

I didn’t really care for this book. I didn’t see real direction, it seemed all over the place. I found it confusing.
