Publisher's Summary

Earth is dying. Hope waits light-years away on Arcadia, a planet veiled in cyan atmosphere...and harboring a dark side.

On the last day of Cassie’s starship journey to her new home, her father is killed in a mysterious explosion. Somehow, she manages to escape death - helped by a vanishing stranger with otherworldly blue-green eyes. 

But his presence lingers in her dreams. 

Officials swear the explosion was a horrible accident, but she’s convinced they are hiding something.... 

About her father. About Arcadia. 

Orphaned and alone, Cassie begins to see curious glowing visions and soon the boy with the cyan eyes reemerges. He offers her one chance to uncover what became of her father and the secrets the planet holds. 

Two worlds collide, and a powerful attraction draws her to Javen. She can’t say no to the opportunity....

Even if saying yes forces her to choose between saving humanity or saving Arcadia.

Conspiracy Theories and Aliens UHM YAS

Parents can have high expectations for their children but Cassiopeia has to live up to a new nation's idea of her. Her parents were famous scientists helping found a colony on the planet Arcadia. Her mother passed away before reaching the planet. Terrorists attack just days before they start their new life on Arcadia and her father is murdered. Or so the government says. Cassie believes her father was kidnapped, not murdered but no one will listen to her. She takes on her father’s job to gain access to the information needed to save him. Along the way, she meets Javen and Max which tugs her deeper into conspiracies behind the new colony.

Magic but in the form of misunderstood science is one of my favorite magic types. I really appreciate the concepts Jenetta Penner puts forwards in saving the world and creating a new colony but this one just wasn’t for me.

I really appreciate the character building and the descriptions of both boys has me torn in who I support as the romantic interest. The narrator did a good job with emotions and descriptions in her voice as well. I just had a hard time getting through it and won't be reading the sequels.

Great Story

I really enjoyed Starfire by Jenettea Penner.
I became a fan of her writing after listening to The Configured Trilogy. Penner gives you female characters that you can relate to and get emotionally invested in. Starfire is no exception. You follow Casseopiea as she and her father travel to a new world to create a new life for humanity. Cass is surprised to enjoy her life until a group of terrorists attack and everything she knows is slipped upside down.
The narrator is perfect for the character and doesn't bore you or overdo the emotional. This makes for a pleasant listening experience.
overall, I loved the story. It was unique and the romance wasn't overly cheesy or present. It worked well with the story.
I would encourage other YA fans to have a read or listen to this book. I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.
I received a free copy from th3 author, but all opinions are my own.

Light space story

Thanks to the Author for this wonderful opportunity to listen to this book, and Audiobx for the review opportunity. The narrator was engaging and easy to follow.

Starfire is a book perfectly suited for its genre, in YA Space scifi & fantasy. It deals with landing on a new planet where they are not alone... but it's not the locals that have sinister agenda but the incoming humans.

Its a light space fantasy since we don't get a in depth back story about how they came upon a new planet, since we start of with MC being already enroute and lands into thorny situation upon reaching the planet.

THE Alcou, it's an interesting concept dealing with multiple dimensions and their life source is under danger from being tampered by human.
I feel the parts with Jivan were rushed, our MC could've gleaned more but their interactions were too short on discoveries but to much on angst.

Cassie, our MCs goal was to find out what happened to her father prior landing, but with the Alcous survival on the line she.... Obviously takes matter into her own hands.... And I'm sorry to say it felt a bit too easy.
She somehow has all the right people at her reach and are blindly going along with her....
However, the overall story was enjoyable, I will be listening to the sequel to see where the story picks from book1

Excellent story spoilt by price of audiobook

Well built and unique story with well-built chatacters and quality narration but books are novella size only and too expensive for the value. I appreciate it when stories are not unnecessarily padded but the set should be combined or the price lowered.

The struggle to survive has just begun.

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel

Summary:
Cassi finds herself on a journey to a new world with her father after her mother’s death. Cassi’s father created the science to teraform their new home into a perfect wold, but be careful with what you wish for. Cassi stumbles upon a meeting that pits her father against their leader making Cassi wondering what was going on. But before she could ask her father about it tragedy struck leaving Cassi alone. That is just the beginning of Cassi’s adventures. Instead of giving up she is determined to find out what happened in spite of the cost.

Arcadia may be humanities last hope, but there are secrets that Arcadia is keeping and Cassi somehow thinks her father might have been at the very core.

This is an incredible saga of a series and it has just begun. Cassi finds allies in the most unexpected places and possibly a love for all time. This audio-book brought the characters to life as the story unfolded.

Great start to the series

Cassie and her father are on a starship bound for a new world called Arcadia. The earth is failing and this planet seems to fit the requirements for humans. Really good story and lots of action. I was impressed with the narrator, she put lots of detail into her portrayal of Cassie. The men's voices were very good too and that's what makes a good narrator. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and realised I have the box set already so I will read the next part.

YA Science Fiction

First off, this book ends on a big cliffhanger, and it is what I would call a typical YA book. So if you like that sort of thing then this is for you.

Starfire

I really enjoyed this book. It is a great Sci-Fi YA book. This book does end on one heck of a cliffhanger. Really excited for the next installment in this series.
