Book review: Eyes of the Galaxy by Jolene Skvarek

⭐⭐ out of 5

I so wish I could give this book more stars, but the first two chapters are pure backstory that could easily have been
dripped in throughout the rest of the book and just when I was getting into it, it finished!  Very disappointing.

This is obviously the author's very first book because there was waaaay too much description and very little speech until
at least chapter three (of nine) and it would have been so much better if it had started at chapter three and had another
couple of chapters at the end instead.

The author says that the book is aimed at 14-18 year olds, yet the main character is 15 so I can't see an 18 year old being
willing to read, let alone enjoy a book with the main character being so much younger than they are.

On top of that, it needs a lot better proof-reading and then editing 'cos there were several missing/wrong letters/words
that could and should have been picked up and corrected before it was published.

It's an OK book with a potential, it was just published before it was totally ready was all.  Sorry.
