Review: And All the Stars

23/2/13

*Esta reseña sera completamente en ingles, ya que es un libro que obtuve de NetGalley, luego subire una version en español*

Title: And All the Stars
Author: Andrea K Höst
Genre: YA / Sci-Fi
Come for the apocalypse.
Stay for cupcakes.
Die for love.
Madeleine Cost is working to become the youngest person ever to win the Archibald Prize for portraiture. Her elusive cousin Tyler is the perfect subject: androgynous, beautiful, and famous. All she needs to do is pin him down for the sittings.
None of her plans factored in the Spires: featureless, impossible, spearing into the hearts of cities across the world – and spraying clouds of sparkling dust into the wind.
Is it an alien invasion? Germ warfare? They are questions everyone on Earth would like answered, but Madeleine has a more immediate problem. At Ground Zero of the Sydney Spire, beneath the collapsed ruin of St James Station, she must make it to the surface before she can hope to find out if the world is ending
Review:

Come for the apocalypse. Stay for cupcakes. Die for love

And All the Stars is so different. Is not the typical apocalypse story.
Maybe the beggining is a little confusing, i felt confused for a few chapters before the pieces begin to come all together.
The story takes place during an apocalypse. The book starts off with the protagonist, Madeleine, waking up after an accident at a train station. And then she realizes about all the things outside.
The characters were real and relatable. Madeleine is a very real teenage girl, she is an artist. Noi is her friend, she is an adorable girl. All the characters were great: Maddie, Noi, Nash, Pan. They are a nice group of friends.

I liked the aliens, oh yes, there is some aliens. They were mysterious and strange.
About the romance, it felt real. Wasn't love at first sight, was something deep and real. And i like that, was very different.
Things that I loved:  The plot, the tagline, characters, romance, the cover and the aliens.
I think Andrea Host has written an amazing book, an apocalyptic story really good.
The ending is a little abrupt but there's an epilogue, explainig some things.
In And All the Stars you will find action, friendship, a lot of emotions, mistery and a great story. Is a wonderful book, a refreshing read.
4/5
And all the stars is the first novel I've read by Andrea K Höst, self-published Australian author. I really enjoyed the book and I recommend it  to sci fi readers just like YA readers.
