All the Stars Left Behind by Ashley Graham

Release Day: June 6, 2017
Relocating to Arctic Norway would put a freeze on anyone’s social life. For Leda Lindgren, with her crutches and a chip on her shoulder the size of her former Manhattan home, the frozen tundra is just as boring as it sounds. Until she meets her uncle’s gorgeous employee.
Unfortunately, no matter how smoking hot the guy is, Roar comes with secrets as unnerving as his moving tattoos. And Leda doesn’t trust him.
Roar shouldn’t be drawn to the moody human girl with eyes that leave him weak in the knees. But when Leda gets shot by one of his enemies and survives, Roar finally understands why he’s drawn to her: Leda is exactly what he was sent to Earth to find. A weapon of immense power capable of saving his planet.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
I have to be honest, when I first started reading this book I was expecting it to be a 3 star read. The first chapter didn't grab my attention, and it felt a bit rushed, but I am so glad I gave it a chance, because it soon morphed into one of the most exciting, intense and thrilling reads I have had the pleasure of stepping into.
Sci-fi enthusiasts will eat this book up. But even if you are not into aliens and interstellar wars, you'll love the book for its elements of romance, forbidden as they were, and you'll be cheering these amazing characters on with each flip of the page.
I liked how Leda was still so human, worrying about silly things like her hygiene etc. even while in the thick of things, but she was also prepared to step up to the plate every chance she got. Her strength stemmed from having to fight a disability that had been a bane in her existence for many years, and this gave her the courage to be more powerful and willing that even the strongest of her group.
I was excited to see how exactly the weapon worked, and what it was capable of, and I was expecting an all out battle to ensue, but Graham surprised me with the twist added near the end.
This book was a fast-paced, action-packed, adventure across the galaxy. It was a fantastic read that immersed me in an imaginative world; one that I would very much like to visit again...soon!!
