One thought on “Split the Sun

  1. Sarah

    Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Perseus Books Group, Running Press and NetGalley This was a YA sci fi story, but it wasn t quite what I expected.Kit was a bit of a mess in this book, she gave in to people, ran away from people, got dosed, hit, and was generally just all over the place, and it was hard to know what she was going to do next.The storyline in this was about Kit, following her mother bombing somewhere, and having problems wit [...]

    I received a free digital copy from the author publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Split the Sun is the second book in Tessa Elwood s Inherit the Stars series but it follows a completely different character than those in Inherit the Stars, on a completely different planet Kit Franks is the daughter of a terrorist her mother blew up a lab, killing people and unleashing a virus on the power source for the district Now Kit needs to deal with the hatred directed at her because o [...]

    I wish I had to say about this book but it was terrible and completely forgettable It s been exactly one week since I read this book and I barely remember anything about it The biggest distinguishing feature about this book was the nonsensical plotline There was so much going on and none of it was elaborated on so I spent way too much of my time floundering, trying to piece together the key events Honestly, this is the type of book that you just cannot write a recap for Not because of poor memo [...]

    This review is also posted at readingnookandcranny.I received a free ARC of this novel from the publisher for an honest review.In Split the Sun, the second and final novel in the Inherit the Stars series, we are introduced to a new leading character, Kit It has been a while since I read the first novel, Inherit the Stars, so I cannot say with full confidence that this novel does not link back to the original in any way other than the universe, but for me Split the Sun did not trigger any recolle [...]

    We killed all independent planets outside house borders by extracting fuel from their cores And once we burn through all the garnered energy, where do we think the next batch will come from Right now, planets on the Brink are rationed down to five hours of energy a day, while here we gawk at nonstop ad screens and control the temperature outside.House Galton has a rebellion on its hands citizens from independent planets want revenge on Galton s empire for destroying their planets to steal energy [...]

    This is not what I was expecting I liked the story, but I was hoping that it would be about Inherit the Stars I also feel like things were going too quickly sometimes because I had a hard time following the storyline.

  8. Annika

    Not as good as the first book but still enjoyable.I do wish Kit had been less impulsive and stupid some of the time Disclaimer An advanced reader copy has been provided through Netgalley for reviewing purposes.

  9. Madison

    Split The Sun mixes fast paced and edgy drama, action, family, romance and one hell of a resilient character to create an addictive story.Kit has achieved a status of notoriety thanks to her mother blowing up their planet s archive Kit is left feeling both guilt and hopelessness, despite her ignorance about her mother s deadly plans, despite what the rest of the planet chooses to think about her But it seems like no one will let Kit fade into the obscurity she craves not the crowds who lay blame [...]

    An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review 2.5 stars.Granted, this is an ARC, so some things might change before publication, but that being said, this had a lot of issues One of the biggest being that Inherit the Stars really needed of a sequel than a companion novel, and this is very much a companion novel I mean, it s set in the same universe and low key mentions a couple big players from ITS butat s it Which might have been okay if this [...]

  11. Rosemary Standeven

    I was hooked on this book from the first three sentences MY SANDAL S INTENT ON DESTRUCTION IT SLIDES OFF my foot and drops eighteen stories Maybe it longs to be lethal, kill a pedestrian how could you not be smitten The writing in this book is exceptional, and along with a great story line, it is not a book to be missed This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone I didn t know about the first book before finishing this one, but now have to get hold of it, as on the str [...]

  12. Saruuh Kelsey

    I absolutely adored Inherit The Stars the world, the characters, the romance, all of it This book not nearly as much I liked the romance The story itself was part cool, part strange I just didn t get why Kit was involved, why she cared at all And it didn t make sense that she knew nothing about her mum s motive but also knew her secrets at the same time I just couldn t figure Kit out BUT I like that she s mean, and unlikeable, and brash I like that in my ladies we don t all have to be sweetness [...]

    I found this book on a bench in school and, I got attracted to the cover At first, I thought that this book would be really interesting to read, but once I flipped through the first twenty pages I lost interest As a young adult, I feel that this book could be better if the plot is organized The chapters are not titled, so I get lost really easily The description of the futuristic world is really creative, but the plot and story development could be better.

  14. Seabrooke

    4.5 stars I actually thought this book was better than Elwood s debut, in terms of strength of plot, though no one could beat the slow build of Asa and Eagle s love arc, let s be honest I felt this book could perhaps have been 30 or 40 pages longer to flesh out some worldbuilding and characters side arcs, but I still really enjoyed it I do hope Elwood ends up writing books, despite the reception of these two.

  15. Sigourney

    Received from NetGalley for review 3.5 stars History records, but stories ground us Prove that these limitless terrors have a limit, that our universe holds something greater than darkness and stronger than fear Split the Sun is set in the same universe as Inherit the Stars, this time on the planet of Galton, but the two stories don t really cross over apart from that It tells the story of eighteen year old Kit, who finds herself suffering from the repercussions of her mother s actions blowing u [...]

  16. Glittery

    It was nice to see the House of Galton and the interaction in how the government works The House of Westlet House of Fane were briefly mentioned I am curious to see books in the series to give character interaction after the events in both books It was well written and enjoyable

  17. S.J. Higbee

    Yes, I managed to do it again begin with the second book in the series So has it impacted on my understanding and enjoyment of this fast action, foot to the floor adventure As it happens, this time around I ve got away with it as Elwood has shifted the action and focus on a completely different protagonist to those featuring in her first book Inherit the Stars This book is all about Kit, who has had a hard time of it the only person in her life who saw fit to spend time and energy on her upbring [...]

  18. Lauren - SERIESous Books

    Want to know if the whole series is worth reading Read my overall review of the whole series at seriesousbookreviews Spoiler Free I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source DNF d at 33% pg 95 290 This book wasn t really what I was anticipating for the sequel I was expecting a continuation of Asa and Eagle s story truthfully, not the introduction of a new character that I would have to reorient myself with.Kit provides a [...]

  19. Sandra

    I received a free copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley.I LOVED the first book in the series inherit the stars so I was super excited to receive a chance to read this one I was disappointed to see that it wasn t about Asa Eagle from the first book but prepared to enjoy it nonetheless, based on how much fun the first one was.Sadly I found it nowhere near as good The story was somewhat boring and I didn t like suicidal, doormat Kit as a heroine Her decision to let her horrible family w [...]

  20. Stephanie

    I have to admit, I m rather fond of this series It s unfortunate there won t be a book three because I think this world still has a lot to offer.As with book one, my biggest frustration with this book was the complicated worldbuilding There s both a political power structure and an almost endless supply of futuristic sci fi technology that seems interesting, but it s not fleshed out nearly enough to be anything but confusing and therefore mildly annoying It also didn t help that I remembered ver [...]

  21. Sara

    I received a copy of this to read from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.The protagonist, Tess, is not drawn as clearly as would ve been ideal Nevertheless, she s a sympathetic character with the world aligned against her, and it s always hard not to root for the underdog It s harder to understand her sympathy for a father who was never a father to her, and for a cousin who clearly has no respect for her Tess s quest to survive is moderately compelling.I hadn t read the first book in th [...]

  22. Yara

    2.5 stars After loving the first book, I was so excited when I got an arc for this What a disappointment It was difficult for me to follow the main character, she was all over the place I understand that the author was probably trying to show the other side of the tracks the first book starred a princess , but even with everything pitted against her, it was hard for me to like, understand, or connect with Kit The last 15% of the story was its saving grace I was also really disappointed that this [...]

  23. Chelsea Radojcic

    Oh, my, goodness Where do I begin Did I love this story Yes I was captivated the entire time and enjoyed every complex moment Wonderful If I could give you than five stars I would Just so enjoyable I read this in two days, unable to stop If I had not been working one of those days, it would have been finished in one day I loved the main character and very much enjoyed the surrounding characters as well I don t want to give any spoilers but this is definitely a book I would recommend reading.

  24. Toni House

    Split the Sun Scfi YA novel, book 2 in and two book series I was looking forward to reading this book Once because of the cover and two because of the description of a young female heroin Kit the main character did have a lot going on around her, with her mother being a terrorist and her father fighting against a drug lord and Kits own suicide attempts, the story seemed disjointed and clunky.But, teens and young adults will still enjoy the book Especially if they have read book one first.I recei [...]

  25. Jillian Schieszer

    Not sure what this has to do with Inheirit the Stars, but it was not even close to being as good as the latter I was not very interested in the characters or the story Nothing really made sense and I didn t care about their stories I loved book one and have been anticipating book two, I am sad it wasn t very good at all I will keep an eye out for future books from this author because I loved the first book a lot.

  26. Jo(Mixed Book Bag)

    Kit has enough going to take down anyone When she decides to end it all someone stops her From there she had a very confusing set of events that lead to a great conclusion Kit even seems to get a happy ending This is YA but I think anyone who likes a complex story line and great characters will love the book This is part of a series but works very well as a stand alone.

  27. ♠ Tabi ♠

    Heavier themes than the first book, but handled just as excellently and with an intense plot that kept me on the edge of my seat, this was a great follow up that surpassed the excellence of its predecessor as all good sequels should.

  28. Suzi Towler

    I was given this free in exchange for an honest review by Netgalley This was a compelling read There are some confusing moments, but the author is very secure in the world she has created, so it did make sense if you stuck with it I would certainly read further publications from this writer.
