Lost Stars by Claudia Gray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Amazing retelling of the Star Wars saga.
This 'young adult romance' is so much more. Yes, it IS that, but it is also
* Hard SF Star Wars
* Retelling the saga from Imperial and Rebel perspectives
* Lays groundwork for The Force Awakens
I'm very impressed by how Gray wove a story of two star-crossed lovers through a retelling of the original saga. It is reminiscent of the way Orson Scott Card retold Ender's Game in Enders's Shadow - it is a standalone story that doesn't require you to know Star Wars - but it enriches the Universe of Star Wars in an artistic and creative way. Terrific!
