*I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are always my own!*
Hey guys!!! So it is just a short way into 2017 and I’ve already completed two books. I feel pretty successful! This book was weird, but not a bad weird. I really enjoyed it overall! Now, let’s get onto the review!
Number of stars: 4.5/5
“When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday she thought it was going to be a normal day. She thought of donuts, coffee, and laughter. She did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try and woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn’t an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore the Cosmos chose her for a reason and it isn’t keen on letting her go until she finishes what it started over ten years ago. Something tried to destroy it and now Diana isn’t just worried about her heart, she is worried about her life.”
This book is like a mixture between Narnia, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Star Wars. At first, I didn’t enjoy the similarities, but the plot was so imaginative but I quickly started to enjoy the read. It was pretty fast paced, and felt a bit rushed at times, but I think I prefer this over a book going too slow.
Diana is bearing the weight of the world on her shoulders…in the form of a bracelet. People are expecting so much out of her and she is simply trying to grasp everything that is happening in her life. She meets lots of aliens, including some attractive ones. These aliens praise and fear her.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. The ending made me ridiculously happy for some reason, and I LIVE for happy endings!
So, Diana is the Bearer of the Cosmos. What does this mean? It means she is, essentially, supposed to be the queen of the universe. Universe as in a lot of planets and such. Sounds pretty stressful if you ask me.
The oddest part is that Diana is completely human. AND she accepts everything relatively quickly. She quickly makes friends with all of the aliens and she gains many followers while she travels through the universe.
She meets everything from a talking cat to a Jar Jar Binks-like character. The talking cat, Kal Zed, is like her guide throughout the whole situation. He helps her to understand what all needs to happen in order for her to become queen of the universe: she has to choose a husband.
Diana quickly decides that she doesn’t really want this life. She finds her way to the Cosmos to ask a question: “Why me?” The Cosmos makes a deal with her: if you figure out what REALLY happened to the previous queen. Word on the street was that the queen killed herself, but the Cosmos believes there was more to it than that.
A special thing about the bracelet that the bearer wears is that it protects the wearer. However, if the wearer isn’t aware of danger, it can’t protect them. Diana figures out that the previous queen would have done ANYTHING for her sons. She manages to find out that Hamyl, the king’s son, was the cause of the previous queen’s death.
The best part of this entire book was the end. Diana does NOT become queen of the universe. She goes back to her normal life. Then, Dimar, the attractive alien figure in the book, comes to Diana. Their lives weren’t going to work out because of how different they are, but they would make it work. Such a romantic ending!!
I’m sorry this review is so short. I finished this book a few days ago and a lot has happened since. Life is just getting crazier! If you guys enjoy fantasy, I recommend this book. It was a really fun, quick read!!
