"A robust, well-realized universe that sparkles with promise." — Kirkus Reviews
For seventeen-year-old Kira, there’s no better way to celebrate a birthday than being surrounded by friends and huddled beside a campfire deep in the woods. And with a birthday in the peak of summer, that includes late night swims under the stars.
Or at least, it used to.
Kira’s relaxing contemplation of the universe is interrupted when a piece of it falls, colliding with her and starting a chain of events that could unexpectedly lead to the one thing in her life that’s missing—her father.
Tossed into a pieced-together world of carnivals and gypsies, an old-fashioned farmhouse, and the alluring presence of a boy from another planet, Kira discovers she’s been transported to the center of a black hole, and there’s more to the story than science can explain. She’s now linked by starlight to the world inside the darkness. And her star is dying.
If she doesn’t return home before the star’s light disappears and her link breaks, she’ll be trapped forever. But she’s not the only one ensnared, and with time running out, she’ll have to find a way to save a part of her past and a part of her future, or risk losing everything she loves.
Dreamy, fluid, and beautiful, Link pairs the mystery of science fiction with the minor-key melody of a dark fantasy, creating a tale that is as human as it is out of this world.

Interesting and different
When I got a copy of Link through NetGalley I didn’t know much about this novel at all. I liked the cover and had seen a few people promote the novel on Twitter, but I had not read what it was about. When I started out I didn’t have much expectation and it was a long time since I read a book that I felt like I didn’t want to put away, so when this book hooked me from the start I have to say I was happily surprised. The novel is basically about a girl who has an accident and then finds herself in another world while she’s sleeping. The first few chapters were a bit confusing, but still intriguing, and it was a bit hard to understand this whole dream thing. But after a while it all became clear and interesting and I just had to know what was going on. The characters in the book are well developed and I instantly connected with the main character. I also like a lot of the worldbuilding, it is OK, but I do think that it should be made more clear throughout the novel that the main characters does not live on Earth. There was a hint in the beginning about this, but then it sort of felt like it wasn’t a different planet. The planet they live on is very similar to Earth, but I still find that it would have made the story more interesting if we could see some more differences between the worlds. It would have made the relationship and the conversations with the boy from Earth much more interesting and understandable at times. The plot feels unique and I can really see the potential in this series. I am intrigued with what is going on and I want to know how it all ends. It’s a great sci-fi novel with what I feel is a unique take on this space travel and alien thing. So kudos to the author there. My biggest disappointment about this book though is the ending. I do realize this is the first in a series of novels, but I still feel like there are so many questions that were left unanswered at the end. There was never any resolution to any of the things that began in this book and I feel that’s a shame. Obviously there has to be some sort of cliffhanger at the end to make the second book interesting too, but the “main problem” should be resolved at the end I feel. But overall this is a great novel that really hooks you in and it’s both interesting and different, so if you like YA Sci-Fi, this is a book you cannot miss. I give it 4/5 stars.by Erika M. on December 13, 2015
