Navigating The Stars by Maria V. Snyder
Published December 1st 2018 by Maria V. Snyder
“There’s this girl, she’s like a comet – makes the rest of the galaxy seem dull in comparrison.”
Terra Cotta Warriors have been discovered on other planets in the Milky Way Galaxy. And Lyra Daniels’ parents are the archaeological Experts (yes with a capital E) on the Warriors and have dragged her to the various planets to study them despite the time dilation causing havoc with her social life.
When one of the many Warrior planets goes silent, and looters attack her research base, Lyra becomes involved in discovering why the Warriors were placed on these planets. And, more importantly, by who.
Two of my favourite things, Books written by Maria V. Snyder and YA Sci-Fi, count me in!! I was super excited to hear that one of my favourite authors had a new book in one of my favourite genres coming out just before Christmas and even more so when I managed to get it a few days early as well!
Maria has written in this particular genre before but this time feels very different, we get a lot more tech, world building and space travel in Navigating the Stars then we did with the Outside/Inside series, I believe Lyra is a little older than Trella and their priorites and dynamics are very different. The blending of futraristic technology on far away planets with archeology feels right and I could honestly have read even more about the whole process and I couldn’t get enough of the mystery and wonder surrounding these Terra Cotta Warriors and their unexplained presence throughout the galaxy.
