The First Starfighter
The First Starfighter: Game 1 (Starfighter Training Academy)- Grace Goodwin
Since I had never watched “The Last Starfighter” I found the concept of this new series to be original and intriguing. Even with the many similarities other readers have mentioned in their reviews, the possibilities in this world are wonderful.
The ability of the female game players to “design” their male alien partners in the game , but turns out they are actually being led to actual beings that will hopefully become their mates partner should they win.
As daunting as the reality is to Jamie, the bold, brave and sassy heroine, she is more than thrilled to let her fantasy become her actual reality and take part as a real life Starfighter defending a real planet against the evil queen she fought in the “game”. She is even more than tingled “all over her body” to find the male she “created” to be her co-partner is an actual gorgeous alien named Alex, and that he has been getting to know her during the whole time she has played the game.
Together Jamie and Alex become the first Starfighter mated pair and they literally set out conquer the universe. Their sizzling, amazing chemistry add to the excitement, fun, and enjoyment of the story.
Jamie had bonded with two other females that played the “game” with her as a team. It is most likely we will see her two friend and their special copilots in upcoming books!
Beginning of the book hard to get started. I thought it picked up more of story 1/4 into book. I enjoyed characters. Will read the next books in series.
This is the latest fantastic story by Grace Goodwin. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. I couldn't put it down! I was caught up in the action from the first page. Jamie has been playing this game, Starfighter Training Academy for months now. She believes that it is just a game until Alex shows up to her apartment and asks her to come with him to become the first Starfighter from Earth. It takes some convincing but she agrees to go. The game is actually a training simulation to find more Starfighter pairs to fight against the evil Queen Raya and her merciless Dark Fleet. Jamie and Alex are a bonded pair but they will be tested. Will they come out on the other side stronger than ever?
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
