    One thought on “The Daughter Star”

    1. Ok. To sum it up, 300 years ago, aliens called Abrax arrived on Earth and gave humans an ultimatum: 1) either they moved to other two planets with living conditions, so that the Abrax could exploit Earth;2) or they remained on Earth, at the risk of being attacked in the future by others "not so kind" aliens.Needless to say, humans chose option #1. So, through two Windows, humans were evacuated from Earth and sent - randomly - to two planets: Adastre and Nea. The first, beautiful and tolerant. Th [...]

    2. There’s something recognizably Bigelow about Susan Jane’s writing that seeps into each of her books and proves them to be just that perfect read for a certain mood. She understands human nature so well, and even though it may be through a sullen lens I find her characters and stories utterly refreshing. As with her Extrahumans series, The Daughter Star should not be turned to if you’re seeking a happily ever after, but if you want a very real portrait of relationships, nonconformity, and a [...]

    3. Originally posted at KirkusFreighter pilot Marta Grayline is caught in the middle of an impending war between her home planet Nea and its neighbor Adastre. When the war starts, she has nowhere to go but back to her family home in Gideon, a traditionalist, backward country in Nea, where women have little freedom. Away from her beloved job, her friends and her Adastran girlfriend and at odds with her conservative family, Marta feels incredibly isolated in Gideon. So, when the opportunity arises fo [...]

    4. Nobody writes a sullen woman like Susan Jane Bigelow. Don’t get me wrong; they have their reasons for their moodiness. Stuck on something of a forced sabbatical with their repressive family in a repressive country, girlfriend unreachable, this corner of the galaxy about to get into an interplanetary war—there are a lot of stresses on young women like Marta Grayline. Bigelow settles us into the tension almost immediately with two quick flashes of prologue, and then we’re immersed in Marta [...]

    5. I was invested enough in Marta that I felt her frustration in Gideon, felt her anger at people trying to sabotage her choices, and then felt her elation as she found a new way to get to space again (when she left, my notes just say: “yay!”). She’s one of my favorite characters in some time. I like the fact that she’s crude and rough, sometimes mystified at why her methods don’t get the best results. I felt a bit protective of her by the end of the book. She’s bullish and stubborn, an [...]

    6. I don't know how to rate this book. Yes I compulsively read to the end and wanted to find out what happened next. And it's hallelujah amazing to read a book about women doing things, women talking, women snarking about men as if there were no male gaze affecting the writer's process. And a lesbian MC with the romantic elements woven through matter of factly? Awesome. ButBUT the writing is a hot mess. This is a draft, not a finished book. The story is barely sketched in, the characterization is i [...]

    7. Love it! I loved all three of Susan Bigelow's books in the Extrahuman Union series, so I knew I was going to love this too. She has the gift of the great science fiction writer--to make fantastical places and futures seem vivid and real. The characters in all of her books are also incredibly three dimensional for science fiction. My only regret is that the next book in this series, The Seeker Star, is not out yet. You can be sure I'll read it when it does!

    8. I used read sci fi all the time but about ten years ago I just drifted away. lately I have been reading a lot of fantasy and mysteries. I have to say.Susan J. Bigelow.you have made me want to read sci fi again! I can't wait for the next book in the series.
