Deva Fagan ☆ 2 Review
Top ship very much reminded me of Kaylee the mechanic from Firefly I was hesitating for a long time over giving this book 2 or 3 stars and finally decided on two for a couple of reasonsFirst the characters they were interesting and mys Circus Galacticus by Deva Fagan was a cute middle grade read It was about an orphaned girl named Trix living at a boarding school of sorts and wasn t anything special Then we learn that her deceased arents left her a weird space rock and someone is after it When a being in a breathing mask and sunglasses appears in her room one night and she fends him off Trix wakes up the next morning her hair suddenly having gone The Vavasour Macbeth pink She thinks she may be able to find answers at the Circus Galacticus which is in town and Trix was the only one to see secret writing on theoster She falls through a mirror and her world gets turned upside down and Trix realizes that maybe she is better than she believed herself to beI enjoyed reading this book but it didn t hold anything special for me The Blueprint (English Edition) personally I liked the idea of the Circus hopping from galaxy to galaxy toerform and that there was someone who was constantly after Trix over what seemed like nothing I really wanted to know about the Mandate and how they made it so that each race of alien or being all looked the same and why I wanted to know of the Crisis of the Strauss Divided politics of the story and the rivalry between the Mandate and the Tinkers I understand that it s a middle grade book and the readers this story is geared towardsrobably wouldn t The Master Masons of Chartres pick those things out but as an adult reading it it s what I wanted to knowI also wanted to know about the circus itself as it seemed like it had a lot hidden things that were eluded to but never explained I also wanted to know about the Ringmaster and his role in everything because I felt like the loose explanation that the only thing keeping him alive was his connection to the Circus It would have been interesting to see into his life I also wanted to know about Trix s mother beingart of the Mandate before she took off to Earth and met Trix s father It would have been satisfying to me if the ending had been Trix stuck with the Mandate like she was being held VARSITY ABDL (Age Play, Forced Regression, Enema, Domestic Discipline, Spanking Romance) prisoner by her own descendants I felt like a lot happened in the end of the story that was rushed and could have been theart of a second bookI would be interested to see if there was going to be to this world although I m not sure it would be something I would seek out to continue It is a book I would consider keeping for my own children some day to read and enjoy. Be a Road House - The Novel part of itSoon Trix discovers an entire universe full of deadly enemies andotential friends not to mention space leeches ancient alien artifacts and exploding chocolate desserts And she just might unravel the secrets of her own ast;if she can survive long enough.
I write fantasy and science fiction for teens and tweens I live in Maine with my husband and our dog When I'm not writing I spend my time reading playing video games doing geometry and drinking copious amounts of teaNOTE My comments on books I've read are not meant to be critical reviews but are just my own reactions I don't generally use stars but I do occasionally mark a book with five
