    I am usually pretty terrible at reading and finishing short story collections, only getting through one or two at a time and then setting them aside for a little while.

It’s fast-paced, peppy, and satisfying, giving me a jolt of energy and fun, plus a hint of romance and the introduction an interesting new creature as a friend and ally for our heroine. I loved it.

    Something for everyone. So far I’ve read 6 of the stories. Sycorax by Jenetta Penner reminded me of the original Star Trek. Planetstrong by Pamela Stewart has lots of action. You will not see the ending of Between the Earth and the Stars( by Elle Scott) coming! LOVED The Stars Between by Derek Murphy – like a dark fairy tale. Will look for more of his books! Deliverance was enjoyable, and Daughters of Ayor is a bit Star Trekkish too, but dark.

    Overall a really good selection of YA sci-fi tales (with varying levels of romance and teen angsting). As per usual with anthologies, stories either work for you or they don't, but many of these were enjoyable even if a few weren't quite my cup of tea. There are plenty of authors here I'd check out more from though. Let Me In by Jennifer Brody - 5 Stars! A group from Earth are taken by a mysterious alien race to save them from the refugee camps of a global Climate War. But not everything is as it Overall a really good selection of YA sci-fi tales (with varying levels of romance and teen angsting). As per usual with anthologies, stories either work for you or they don't, but many of these were enjoyable even if a few weren't quite my cup of tea. There are plenty of authors here I'd check out more from though. Let Me In by Jennifer Brody - 5 Stars! A group from Earth are taken by a mysterious alien race to save them from the refugee camps of a global Climate War. But not everything is as it seems, and politics isn't just a human problem. Really great emotional writing - a YA tale of love, loss, and the harshness of being a refugee caught between certain death and uncertain life. The Stars Between by Derek Murphy - 4 Stars for an odd intergalactic Romeo and Juliette story. Really well written, but the "romance" is a bit iffy. Even for a sort-of reworking I expected more believable build up - plus how does Celeste get around what Hakaan did so easily? Because he's hot? Yeesh! Sycorax by Jenette Penner - 3.5 Stars. A bit of an odd one where boy meets girl on a broken down space station, but not everything's as it seems. God writing (if a bit obvious), but I love the snarky AI characters. Deliverance by Raquel Lyon - 2 star. Very tropey, YA cliche insta-lust and flirting, a revelation that had no foreshadowing and was a bit Scooby Doo. Also annoyingly littered with nonsense words spliced with numbers, hence the low rating. Daughters of Ayor by David R Bernstein - 5 damn tense stars. I mean woah, trapped on a dying spaceship suspense done so horribly, terribly well (negatives used in the best possible way). Only downer: typos involving double apostrophes and missing letters (I'v'?) Going Home by Holly Hook - 4 stars. A neat little story, well paced and with a good twist. The resolution's a little emotionally rushed but otherwise good! Siteron by Krista Street - 3.5 stars - an interstellar warship is out to avenge their lost colony, but one girl discovers the truth behind the distress signal. A well-written YA action/adventure(/romance), but I do wish the heroine didn't have to catch herself staring at a guy's lips in a #awkward way when drama's happening. The Crystal Prince by Everly Frost - 4 stars. A fairy tale rejigging with aliens and mecha and mystery. Can't say which without going into spoilers, but nicely written with a tough MC. Six by Lindsey R. Loucks - 1.5 stars. I just really didn't like the writing style ("mind grapes"? What the-) It's probably good enough if you don't mind irritating teenage narration. The action was a bit confusing and disappointingly open-ended. Dark Star by S.E. Anderson - 2.5 Stars. Started good and tense when a space salvager finds a seemingly deserted ship, but some of what happens after felt a bit messy (smooching that quickly, really?) The Culling by Melissa A. Craven - 1.5 stars. Aliens have come to Earh and are looking to make it better... by culling "undesirable" peoles from the human race. Some kids who escaped this fate want to stop it. Mostly dialogue... and a lot of it is info-dumping exposition. The kids were annoying "snappy" personalities that didn't get a chance to go beyond their banter. The ending felt unsatisfyingly open ended. Interception by Norma Hinkens - 1 star. Putting a synopsis of the story that effectively IS the entire story at the beginning kinda ruined it. A short story shouldn't need explaining and *then* telling. Kids, aliens, military strongmaning... The ending wasn't so much of a gasp as a disappointment. It felt like part one of something. Didn't really enjoy it.

    This is a fairly diverse collection of stories. I thought a few of them were very good, one was downright great. I'm going to mention the ones that stood out to me. Overall, I'm glad I read it. I've found a few new authors whose other work I am interested in looking into. Six, by Lindsey R. Loucks was a great mix of funny, creepy, and heartwarming - impressive for such a short story.

The author is very good at building suspense and packing a lot of emotion into just a few words. It's complete, but there's room for more. I'd follow this one in a heartbeat if it were expanded. Interception, by Norma Hinkens had me hooked by the end. It was very easy to visualize everything. I was really impressed by how clever this one was. For me this one was second only to the Lindsey Loucks story. Planetstrong, by Pamela Stewart was really good. It featured strong world-building and an interesting story. The main character was very easy to root for. She's not abrasive but she knows her value and is brave even when afraid. I really liked that. This is one I would follow if it were expanded upon. Deliverance, by Raquel Lyon had some great lighthearted moments and plenty of action. I liked that the male lead had some charm. It might be fun to follow a series with these characters. Going Home, by Holly Hook was an unusual take on an alien invasion theme. It kept me guessing and my interest in the story increased as it progressed. Siteron, by Krista Street had a nice message told in an entertaining way. The world building on this one was impressive and I liked that it felt like a complete story. I liked it enough that I've already downloaded more of the author's work. The Culling, by Melissa A. Craven featured strong world-building and a lot of action. Things are left a little up in the air, but not in an annoying way. Maybe the moral could have been presented a little more subtly, but it was a good moral so no problems here. The Crystal Prince, by Everly Frost was unlike anything I've ever read. I had no idea where it was going, though everything that happened worked within the story. This one feels really self-contained and has a satisfying ending. The Stars Between, by D.S. Murphy was a roller-coaster ride. It's a prequel for a planned series. It was certainly interesting, although I wish more time had been spent on describing the two peoples and their abilities (mechanical and otherwise). Note: It is most definitely a dark fantasy (view spoiler)[Don't expect everyone to make it out of this one alive or for it to have a happy ending (hide spoiler)] . Daughters of Ayor, by David Bernstein felt a little like two stories put together. Like D.S. Murphy's story, this gets serious. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this anthology.

    Big gifts come in small packages What can I say? Ms. Scott has once again shown her skills as a writer. My sole purpose of acquiring this collection of stories in the young adult dystopian genre was just to read Ms.Scott's new work. What I enjoyed most about this story was her ability to pull me in as if I was in a wagon and she was pulling the handle and leading me through this story as if we were walking along the streets of a little town window shopping. Her ability to show the reader what she Big gifts come in small packages What can I say? Ms. Scott has once again shown her skills as a writer. My sole purpose of acquiring this collection of stories in the young adult dystopian genre was just to read Ms.Scott's new work. What I enjoyed most about this story was her ability to pull me in as if I was in a wagon and she was pulling the handle and leading me through this story as if we were walking along the streets of a little town window shopping. Her ability to show the reader what she sees as she writes these words down it's not only effective but it makes her writing and this story credible and relatable. From describing the glass floor below Arylia to the soft cushion seat hugging the window of the ship which reminds me of a daybed in a young girl's bedroom. Arylia is not a flat character we begin to see more of who she is as a 16 year old girl looking out into the Stars into space exploring like so many children and young adults do. We all look for adventure we all want to see what's out there beyond our surroundings beyond our current environment we all want to know who else is out there in the universe, on our planet. we see the story unfold Through The Eyes of a 16 year old girl being the only child on the spaceship which is her home. In one part of the story we find Aurelia and her people the soulians captured by the Earthlings, although the earthlings are just like the soliuns with just minor physical differences but isn't that how America is how this world is on planet Earth we are all from different cultures different backgrounds. Another thing that I found interesting was the resemblance of the Caverns and the cells in Between the Stars and Earth with The uprising Caverns from Harbor of Light by Ms Scott. I also think that KY is somehow connected to a couple of the characters from Ms scott's incandescent series. There's so much about this story that the world needs to see. It may be a Ya genre, but it is a story for all ages and for anyone who dares to dream. For anyone who dares to sacrifice everything for the greater good. This reader's thoughts on this are two thumbs up. In all honesty, I am not sure if any other Ya Dystopian writer could hook me the way Elle Scott has. looking forward to more from this brilliant author. Ms. Scott, my apologies for the late review.

    What a wonderful collection of short stories about spaceships and alien battles. A few of the highlights: Going Home, by Holly Hook: If you've read her War of the Worlds retelling, you'll recognize Matt and his father. This is their backstory, taking place a few years before the trilogy, on the day they were drafted to relocate to Mars. Matt refuses to leave the home he's always known, and creates a scene. He discovers a secret no one is supposed to know, but doesn't understand the ramifications What a wonderful collection of short stories about spaceships and alien battles.

This is their backstory, taking place a few years before the trilogy, on the day they were drafted to relocate to Mars. Matt refuses to leave the home he's always known, and creates a scene. He discovers a secret no one is supposed to know, but doesn't understand the ramifications of what he has learned. If you haven't read the trilogy, this story won't spoil anything, and it will give you a taste of what to expect. I couldn't put it down. Sycorax, by Jenetta Penner: Fans of Firefly or Killjoys will love this tale. A captain of questionable virtue and his trusty companion - the female AI on his ship, make a pit stop on an unknown outpost when the hyperdrive malfunctions. They soon discover that the friendly people who offer to help them are not quite what they seem, and a sinister fate awaits them if they let down their guard. A fun adventure that fulfills the expectations of those familiar with the genre. The Stars Between, by Derek Murphy: The powerful daughter of a defeated king fights to preserve the traditions of her planet in defiance of a tyrant. She is promised to marry his son, whose open mindedness surprises her. But when her treasonous behavior is discovered, will the prince be able to protect her? And what will happen when she finally unlocks her true power? A dark and haunting tale that will leave you wanting more - conveniently this story is a prequel to an upcoming trilogy based on the myth of Psyche and Cupid. I can't wait to read it! Daughters of Ayor, by David Bernstein: Len Morrow is the sole survivor on a ship that has been flooded with radiation. Secure but quarantined, he will soon run out of food. When powerful aliens appear and take over the ship, it is up to Morrow to prevent them from gaining control and destroying the earth. Will he find the strength to defeat them? Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, this tale threw me a curve ball. What an exciting ride.

    This is a wonderful collection of short science fiction stories. I was really happy to see that most have YA romance; however, I still highly enjoyed those that did not feature any romance. I love reading science fiction for the escape, and it is nice to have so many stories in one book. My imagination almost couldn’t keep up!

Here are reviews for some of my favorites in the bunch: Between the Earth and the Stars: I really enjoyed the deception that occurs in this one. The romance was also really sweet. Daughters of Ayor: Wow! This one was heartbreaking and a little scary. I really connected with Len and was rooting for him the entire time. Deliverance: This one was fun. I thought the romance and dialogue was written so well, and I always love when a heroine repeatedly saves the hero. I look forward to reading more from Raquel Lyon. Going Home: I thought the twist in this one was genius. I found it to be incredibly well-written and would love to read more books set in this world. Sycorax: This is one of those featuring a ‘too good to be true’ situation, and I enjoyed waiting and wondering how the plot would play out. I could easily picture every scene which is something I look forward to with science fiction and fantasy. The Stars Between: This one was a bit dark and sad, but I loved it as well. I noticed that this is a prequel, and I am interested in continuing the series. Celeste is such a great character; one that I immediately connected with and would really like to see more of. I received a copy and volunteered to review it.

More please, Elle Scott! The Culling by Melissa A. Craven This story draws you in from the very beginning, as good stories do. I found myself cheering for absent parents having raised their children to see biological diversity as a good thing. The characters are very clear and full bodied, the world building is fantastic. I loved the ending. There’s even a surprise waiting to be read. Following this story further would be great. There are so many more fantastic tales in this anthology. Do yourself a favour and read them!

More than anything, Samira reminds readers that love and its absence are universal tongues and that strength is grown out of our vulnerabilities.

    Interesting Anthology: Some Good and Some Not An anthology is like a riistaffel - a lot of small dishes around a common core. Some dishes are really interesting and some are hard to complete. The rest aren’t memorable. The central theme of humans in space allows for a lot of diversity. I found a couple of the short stories really held my interest. Those and a few others made this a worthwhile read. Most of the stories seemed to be the pilot for a series of books. I think there is something here fo Interesting Anthology: Some Good and Some Not An anthology is like a riistaffel - a lot of small dishes around a common core. Some dishes are really interesting and some are hard to complete. The rest aren’t memorable. The central theme of humans in space allows for a lot of diversity.

    There wasn't a bad story in this whole anthology ! It offered a good variety of short stories by in my opinion 14 very talented authors . Very imaginative and well written, action-packed, a little romance, everything you want all put into this one book . I read it in a couple of hours, it is fast paced and an easy read . I will certainly be looking out for more books by the authors included in this anthology . There wasn't a bad story in this whole anthology !

    Great set of a sci-fi short stories. Some of these I would love to see fleshed out into a bigger book for sure!! I can't pick just one favorite from this set as there are so many good ones. The Culling by Melissa A Craven and Interception by Norma Hinkens are both amazing and I would really love to see what happens next in both stories. Great set of a sci-fi short stories.

    I absolutely loved it! The characters were compelling, the stories were interesting, and the writing was amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA sci-fi. The stories pull you in and keep you hooked. Overall, I thought it was amazing, and I'll definitely be reading more from these authors in the future! I absolutely loved it!

    I’m not a big fan of short stories as I always want more. LOL A compilation of wonderfully written young adult science fiction short stories! Each an exciting fast read. One in particular showcases Norma Hinkens at her best. I thoroughly enjoyed reading each of these and recommend them highly.

    Good collection! Most of the stories were well done. Sci-fi intergalactic, space travel, alien invasion, colonization, a bit of everything! If you are a fan of this genre you will enjoy several of these stories.
