    I loved every little bit of this book <3 The characters stole my heart. I love Anna's bravery, Nathaniel's heart, and Eliza's cunning mind. Thor does such a fantastic job making you care for them from the start, and I was so utterly invested in their stories. Plus, reading about...

    It wasn't hard to fall in love with this book when Thor gives us an incredible dive into a blend of tech and alchemy. From the first page, I was hooked by a steampunkesque world and three very compelling and different main characters. We see how each character fits into a plot wher...

    I rate this book 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the premise of the book. It has a sci fi dystopian feel but in an old time. Some sort of plague is happening, requiring heart transplants. The main character makes a huge mistake, which propels the story forward, and I felt a bit manipulated, but o...

    So I read an early version of this book and it was GREAT, and basically, everyone should be adding this to their to-read lists because it's a great ride full of lesbians and aces in space with cool world-building. Why are you still reading this, go add this book to your lists!!! ...

    Lovely writing but I just couldn?t connect with the story. It could also be that I?m hard to please with any sci-fi book! However, there is good diversity and I think a lot of people will like it. ...

    So excellent on so many levels. ...

    Sharply characterized and beautifully written, Tarished Are the Stars was a look at a too-close-for-comfort earth-like planet and the way the best of intentions in trying to create a better future can go awry. I loved the complexity of the interactions, motivations, and the machination...

    Excuse me, was this book written with my interests in mind?! Science fiction, outlaws, infections spreading, and queer? Sign me the heck up! 1/24/19: THAT COVER REVEAL THO ??? I am so excited that Tarnished Are the Stars will be one of the Reader Voracious Novel19 Books!...

    I read an early draft of this and I can say, truthfully, that it's such an engaging, quick page-turning read, and I loved the multiple POVs and they way they wove together so well! Rosiee is gifted in her talent for words (especially the sci-fi kind!) and I can't wait to read the finis...

    I received an ARC from Scholastic in return for an honest review. And look, I read a lot, but sometimes, I forget what fun is, but this was a wild ride reminding me of all those heart pang moments to why I love reading. Please make sure you check this book out when it's published in...

    3.5 stars but I rounded up. I enjoyed this book however I would have wanted some more world building and character development. This story could have easily spanned two or three books and I would have read them all. I want to know so much more about Anna, Eliza and Nathaniel. The plot ...

    I read an early version of this book and loved it. The characters are vivid and real, the conflict is intense, the setting is so unique. Then I found out that my fav character* was not only getting more page time but also her own point of view?!?!? Dead. I am sooooo excited to read thi...

    Masterful writing, immersive world, and three unique, wonderfully flawed protagonists. LOVED. ...

    Great debut! Review tk soon. ...

    I loved every little bit of this book <3 The characters stole my heart. I love Anna's bravery, Nathaniel's heart, and Eliza's cunning mind. Thor does such a fantastic job making you care for them from the start, and I was so utterly invested in their stories. Plus, reading about...

    Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive a copy of Tarnished Are the Stars by Rosiee Thor as an e-ARC. Also, Rosiee and I are friends, so take grains of salt accordingly. Content Notes: Emotional and verbal abuse, allusions to physical abuse, death of a child, surgery, parental dea...

    *Spoiler free, 3.5 stars* I'd seen the title of this book around before the cover was released and a lot of people seemed really excited for it. I didn't know what it was about at all, so I sort of just let it sit on the outskirts of my radar. Then, my friends knocked some sense int...

    *I got this book for review from the publisher* I really did enjoy this read. I liked how we got three very different POV and how each POV gave the audience such a different look at this world. I really did enjoy this world building but thought it had some issues describing the worl...

    It wasn't hard to fall in love with this book when Thor gives us an incredible dive into a blend of tech and alchemy. From the first page, I was hooked by a steampunkesque world and three very compelling and different main characters. We see how each character fits into a plot wher...

    I rate this book 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the premise of the book. It has a sci fi dystopian feel but in an old time. Some sort of plague is happening, requiring heart transplants. The main character makes a huge mistake, which propels the story forward, and I felt a bit manipulated, but o...

    "I don't know," Anna replied. "I doubt we'll ever know for sure. There are two sides to every story." Anna continued. "Sometimes it isn't the sides that count; it's where they intersect." This was an okay read, I loved the beginning and then got lost towards the end. While havin...

    So I read an early version of this book and it was GREAT, and basically, everyone should be adding this to their to-read lists because it's a great ride full of lesbians and aces in space with cool world-building. Why are you still reading this, go add this book to your lists!!! ...

    3.5 stars but I rounded up. I enjoyed this book however I would have wanted some more world building and character development. This story could have easily spanned two or three books and I would have read them all. I want to know so much more about Anna, Eliza and Nathaniel. The plot ...

    I read an early version of this book and loved it. The characters are vivid and real, the conflict is intense, the setting is so unique. Then I found out that my fav character* was not only getting more page time but also her own point of view?!?!? Dead. I am sooooo excited to read thi...

    Ooo this sounds promising and I like the cover! ...

    *I received a free ARC in exchange for a honest review.* Anna's mechanical heart is a secret that separates her from the rest of the people of the Settlement - the capitol city on the terra-formed planet that the population of the former Earth has relocated to. Only those who live i...

    Masterful writing, immersive world, and three unique, wonderfully flawed protagonists. LOVED. ...

    Great debut! Review tk soon. ...

    I loved every little bit of this book <3 The characters stole my heart. I love Anna's bravery, Nathaniel's heart, and Eliza's cunning mind. Thor does such a fantastic job making you care for them from the start, and I was so utterly invested in their stories. Plus, reading about...

    *Spoiler free, 3.5 stars* I'd seen the title of this book around before the cover was released and a lot of people seemed really excited for it. I didn't know what it was about at all, so I sort of just let it sit on the outskirts of my radar. Then, my friends knocked some sense int...

    *I got this book for review from the publisher* I really did enjoy this read. I liked how we got three very different POV and how each POV gave the audience such a different look at this world. I really did enjoy this world building but thought it had some issues describing the worl...

    It wasn't hard to fall in love with this book when Thor gives us an incredible dive into a blend of tech and alchemy. From the first page, I was hooked by a steampunkesque world and three very compelling and different main characters. We see how each character fits into a plot wher...

    I rate this book 3.5 stars. I enjoyed the premise of the book. It has a sci fi dystopian feel but in an old time. Some sort of plague is happening, requiring heart transplants. The main character makes a huge mistake, which propels the story forward, and I felt a bit manipulated, but o...

    "I don't know," Anna replied. "I doubt we'll ever know for sure. There are two sides to every story." Anna continued. "Sometimes it isn't the sides that count; it's where they intersect." This was an okay read, I loved the beginning and then got lost towards the end. While havin...

    A RECOGNIZED ACE MAIN CHARACTER! QUEER SLOW BURN! STEAMPUNK VIBES AND A BIT OF SPACE! Tarnished are the Stars was everything I was hoping for and more, including multiple POVs, fully realized characters that shared the sassy quality I love, and a plot that still has me reeling. ...

    Just finished reading an ARC of this. I really enjoyed it and had trouble putting it down to go to sleep. All three pov characters were likeable (my favorite was Anna). The relationship between Anna and Eliza developed a bit fast, but I still enjoyed it. ...

    I can't wait to read this book! (It comes out a day after my birthday, so it's basically a birthday present to me.) ((also that COVER <3 )) ...

    So I read an early version of this book and it was GREAT, and basically, everyone should be adding this to their to-read lists because it's a great ride full of lesbians and aces in space with cool world-building. Why are you still reading this, go add this book to your lists!!! ...

    Lovely writing but I just couldn?t connect with the story. It could also be that I?m hard to please with any sci-fi book! However, there is good diversity and I think a lot of people will like it. ...

    DISCLAIMER: I received an ARC in exchange for a honest review. I'm also friends with the author. cw: abuse, parental death (on and off screen), surgery Finishing books past midnight always messes up with my ability to write proper reviews, but also... it tells you how incapable o...

    So excellent on so many levels. ...

    Sharply characterized and beautifully written, Tarished Are the Stars was a look at a too-close-for-comfort earth-like planet and the way the best of intentions in trying to create a better future can go awry. I loved the complexity of the interactions, motivations, and the machination...

    im: in love ...

    Hello lovely readers! I don't spend much time over on goodreads anymore, so if you have any questions, please reach out over on twitter or on my website! Since advance copies are out in the world now, I wanted to share a list of content warnings for anyone who would like to review them...

    Excuse me, was this book written with my interests in mind?! Science fiction, outlaws, infections spreading, and queer? Sign me the heck up! 1/24/19: THAT COVER REVEAL THO ??? I am so excited that Tarnished Are the Stars will be one of the Reader Voracious Novel19 Books!...

    I read an early draft of this and I can say, truthfully, that it's such an engaging, quick page-turning read, and I loved the multiple POVs and they way they wove together so well! Rosiee is gifted in her talent for words (especially the sci-fi kind!) and I can't wait to read the finis...
