Love brought them together - life is pulling them apart... 

Seren and Dom have fled their old lives on board spaceship Ventura in order to be together. They crash-land on a beautiful, uninhabited planet, which at first seems like paradise. 

There is no one to answer to ... but no one to ask for help. And with each new day comes the realisation of how vulnerable they truly are. 

 This planet has secrets - lots of them. Uncovering them could be the key to survival, but at what cost?

The Loneliness of Distant Beings was one of my favourite books last year, so I was really looking forward to the sequel. 

Seren, Dom, Ezra and Mari crash-landed after escaping the Ventura. The planet they're on is hostile, the weather on the island is unpredictable, and unknown danger is everywhere. But Seren and Dom are together, and that's all that counts. 

Until things get so bad they have to leave the island and go searching for the mainland. Where they stumble into a bunch of secrets too close to home. If what they discover doesn't ruin everything, the mistrust Seren starts to feel might... 


I was SO excited about this book. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen to these four characters now that they were alone. I was so looking forward to finding out about this strange planet, and see how they survived. But um, all of the things I wanted to know about ended up being the problems I had with this story. 

The first book in this trilogy was amazing. The romance, heartache and obstacles Seren & Dom overcome kept me on the edge of my seat. I stormed through that book because I was hooked and loved it heaps. 

This one, though. This one was a stuggle to get through.

It wasn't very exciting. I hated what comes between them. I didn't care for the multi-dimensional thing, the surprises were meh, and I (unfortunately) found myself skimming forward several times. :/ 

The Glow of Fallen Stars turned out to be a disappointment that unravels every amazing thing about the first book. It started out well, but I just couldn't get into it. Personally, I kinda wish I'd let the story end with the first book. Such a shame.
