Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

As the fifth child of a family of six, 23-year-old Ada von Hasenberg is not particularly valuable to her wealthy family. Her marital alliance and subsequent espionage on behalf of House von Hasenberg (one of the three High Houses that wield power in this universe) are her assets in this carefully plotted novel that blends science fiction and political intrigue. Ada's strength is tempered by her vulnerability. No political plot is complete without a completely unsuitable love interest, and Marcus Loch plays that role well. Initially brought together out of self-preservation, the pair heat up the story with barely restrained sexual tension. Ada and Loch are joined by two unlikely accomplices in their effort to uncover the machinations of House Rockhurst (technology is decidedly on the side of House Rockhurst). Will their discoveries avert a war between the High Houses? The characters and romances are deliciously predictable, and the action is nonstop, though the writing gets slightly repetitive. VERDICT A series starter for those who enjoyed Melissa Landers's "Staflight" series or Sharon Shinn's Shattered Warrior. Purchase for teens who prefer more mature themes and off-planet action.—Jodeana Kruse, R.A. Long High School, Longview, WA

Review

“This is space-opera adventure and sweeping romance in equal parts, an enthralling and eminently satisfying book.” (New York Times Book Review )

“POLARIS RISING is space opera at its best, intense and addictive, a story of honor, courage, betrayal, and love. Jessie Mihalik is  an author to watch.” (Ilona Andrews, #1 New York Times bestelling author)

“An intoxicating journey through the galaxy.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Heart-pounding futuristic action and scorching chemistry make Polaris Rising a thrilling ride. A gripping and sexy space adventure!” (Amanda Bouchet, USA Today bestselling author of The Kingmaker Chronicles)

“The badass space princess adventure we deserve.” (Kit Rocha, New York Times bestselling author)

“I loved everything about this story...when I finished and the story left me craving more of this world and characters. Highly recommend!”
(Jeffe Kennedy, RITA Award winning author)

“Mihalik debuts with the first book of a science-fiction trilogy filled with high-tech action, political intrigue, and steamy romance. Fast-paced space opera, filled with daring rescues and blaster fire, thrown into high gear by the passionate romance between the lead characters.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Smart dialog among sharp-witted characters, as well as tight action scenes and a bit of sex and romance all come together for an exciting tale across the stars. This fun debut frolics through the space opera setup with an exciting and brave new heroine.” (Library Journal)

“Read this book. Right now. Immediately.” (Smart Bitches, Trashy Books)

“Along with her remarkable world building, Mihalik introduces rich supporting characters that are deftly drawn into both the running battles as well as the layered political intrigue... Polaris Rising sets a magnificent stage for Mihalik’s next installment in the Consortium Rebellion trilogy.” (BookPage.com)
