As a companion to Starflight, Starfall picks up the story right where it ended but switches the points of view from Solara and Doran to Cassia and Kane. Their relationship is full of banter and teasing but also tension, as Cassia must decide whether she wants to stay with Kane and the life she has built as a crewmember of a spaceship or whether she wants to go home to the planet she ran from and reclaim her role as a princess. Though some of the plot does take place in the cramped confines of the ship, Landers ensures the characters see a lot of action racing from planet to planet as they deal with soldiers, pirates, and the mafia. The story balances the romance with action and some political commentary on what the best form of government for Cassia’s home planet would be. Well-developed characters round out the story, including old favorites from Starflight in addition to some new faces. This is a strong companion novel and a great choice for anyone looking for an action-packed space adventure.
