has found her place in this new world and knows that no matter what no matter on what version of Earth she is on goodness will prevailI njoyed Starlight s Edge than I did Neptune s Tears and a large

tropes the world of New Earth is almost antiseptic in its overall feel but Zee smpathy helps the reader maneuver around this The romance is toned down a bit less in this seuel since the stakes are different than in Neptune s Tears There are many tender moments between Zee and David that shine through this novel and with the cliffhanger from the previous novel it nticed me nough to read on about what would happen between themZee s stubbornness to find some manner in which to use her mpath skills was a good way to allow #her to keep that aspect from her previous life while also giving her
