    The Native Star is for me what I assume Soulless was for many of my dear Goodreads friends a romance wrapped up in a steampunky adventure I thought Soulless was a trite fanfic stuffed with ripping bodices and an occasional gadget or two, but The Native Star, IMO, is the real deal, a well thought out and original alternative universe romp The story takes place in 1870s AU America In this America witches and warlocks stopped being persecuted and now are a legitimate strata of the American s The Native Star is for me what I assume Soulless was for many of my dear Goodreads friends a romance wrapped up in a steampunky adventure I thought Soulless was a trite fanfic stuffed with ripping bodices and an occasional gadget or two, but The Native Star, IMO, is the real deal, a well thought out and original alternative universe romp The story takes place in 1870s AU America In this America witches and warlocks stopped being persecuted and now are a legitimate strata of the American society They trade their skills, they are a part of government, they even comprise a special force unit of military Our heroine, Emily, is a witch in a small timber producing village Emily s business is not doing so great, the magic trading monopolists are overtaking the market The only solution for her financial problems is to harness a wealthy man to support her and her stepfather On the day when Emily charms her target man which turns out to be not as much fun as Emily thought it would be , she also gets involved in an affair that leaves her with a stone of strange qualities imbedded in her right hand The most curious thing about this stone is that it has the ability to suck in any magic that Emily happens to come in contact with Which means she can no longer perform magic There is only one person who can help Emily in her plight an uptight, annoying warlock Dreadnought Stanton who promises her to take care of her problem if she agrees to travel with him to consult his mentor across the country.The Native Star starts as a pretty light read, with a little bit of magic and quite a lot of antagonistic Darcy Elizabeth like bantering as our couple make their way first to San Francisco and later to New York But gradually the book gets darker and gloomier The magic is not all about love potions, it can be ugly and bloody The stakes get raised higher and higher as we, along with Emily and Stanton, learnof the stone s nature and value The stone is a hot commodity, and many people want to get their hands on it.Hobson s story writing skills are impressive I can t believe it is her debut While she doesn t break any new ground in terms of romance, her magical system is one of the most interesting and complex I ve ever seen Hobson incorporates it into her story seamlessly In the author s vision, magic permeates American history and all parts of people s lives in a very organic and realistic way If this is what steampunk is, I definitely wantof it This mix of history, magic, adventure, gadgetry and love is right up my alley

    I get ridiculously animated when I am excited about books and boy, you should ve seen me explaining this book to people I encountered in real life who asked me what I was reading There s this woman who lives in backwoods California in the late 1800s but in, like, a slightly different universe with all sorts of magic So she and her pa, who isn t really related to her, are the local witch and warlock who create hexes and spells for people and their business is in trouble from a mail order compa I get ridiculously animated when I am excited about books and boy, you should ve seen me explaining this book to people I encountered in real life who asked me what I was reading There s this woman who lives in backwoods California in the late 1800s but in, like, a slightly different universe with all sorts of magic So she and her pa, who isn t really related to her, are the local witch and warlock who create hexes and spells for people and their business is in trouble from a mail order company Also, there is this badass type warlock from a hoity toity magic school and no one really knows why he s in their town So Emily, that s the woman, in the very beginning she creates a love spell that goes wrong and then there are mining zombies, huge, shambling rodents and then all sorts of wild west stuff, a long train ride, and ancient magic and villains and Cue a confused look on my friends faces That was understandable because Native Star truly is a combination of so many genres The book is fun in the same way as Firefly, only Firefly is sci fi western and this is wild, west fantasy Both of them have fun romantic plots and I really dug the dialogue between Emily and Dreadnought I ve wanted you ever since I saw you dancing naked under that damn oak tree, botching up that preposterous love spell Emily jabbed an accusing finger at him So you did see me It was an appalling spectacle, he said, I enjoyed it tremendously Loc 5576 Native Star was tightly plotted for the most part, though it gets a little flustered in last portion I found myself rereading portions of the climactic scenes for clarity, especially when the author alluded to events and characters that hadn t been mentioned since the very first pages of the novel Scatterbrained people like me who read several books at once might find it a bit hard to remember everything and everyone at times Truly, there was very little that I didn t enjoy in Native Star Perhaps the only problems I had at all were the number of characters with secondary or hidden motivations and the number of villains But the author doesn t take herself too seriously and her fun is the reader s enjoyment This book is the perfect example of a novel that might ve gone under my radar had it not been for several glowing reviews by friends of mine on Goodreads I even bought the second book before I d read the first because I was pretty positive I d enjoy it I will be reading The Hidden Goddess sooner rather than later

    The goodreads anddescriptions for The Native Star promise so many elements that it s hard to believe the novel could possibly deliver them all successfully historical fiction, fantasy and magic, steampunk, western, and romance And yet, this book is one of the rare cases when an idea that crosses so many genres and brings in many different aspects actually works well.Emily Edwards is the local witch in a small town in California The year is 1876, but this isn t quite the past that The goodreads anddescriptions for The Native Star promise so many elements that it s hard to believe the novel could possibly deliver them all successfully historical fiction, fantasy and magic, steampunk, western, and romance And yet, this book is one of the rare cases when an idea that crosses so many genres and brings in many different aspects actually works well.Emily Edwards is the local witch in a small town in California The year is 1876, but this isn t quite the past that history books tell us about Instead of being false accusations, it turns out that the witch trials were actually attempts to out real witches and warlocks, but in this alternate universe witchcraft has been legalized and magic is now an important part of the United States However, not everyone is so accepting of it, and magic is also used illegally for criminal purposes or to manipulate people Emily starts the story by deciding that the only way to save her and her father from their financial problems is to cast a love spell on a wealthy local man Unfortunately, things don t go quite to plan, and before Emily can put things right she finds herself with a strange magic absorbing stone embedded in her palm that prevents her from using magic and reversing the love spell.Reluctantly teaming up with the insufferable warlock, Dreadnought Stanton, Emily must set out across the country to have the stone removed so she can eventually put things right again However, the stone is farvaluable than Emily could have foreseen, and it turns out that just about everyone wants to get their hands on it As Emily and Stanton flee for their lives, their relationship goes from barely tolerating one another to a begrudging friendship to something a little deeper It s the kind of romance I enjoy reading, the kind that is built up slowly and steadily and had me caring about the characters first.This is a really good fantasy historical steampunk western romance The world Ms Hobson has created is vivid and easily imaginable I like how she has cleverly woven magic into history and mixed it up with a touch of real life events and people like President Grant but kept it very fresh and exciting at the same time The tone is mostly light hearted and the pacing felt just right, I m really really glad that I already have The Hidden Goddess waiting for me

It got tedious But that aside, I liked Emily.Dreadnought Stanton, the hero, was an asshole Sorry, but he did not impress me in any way From his smug condescension early in the book which, despite everything including Emily saving his life on several occasions he NEVER got over he was still keeping vital things from her so she wouldn t worry her pretty little head over it, all the way at the very end of the book , to his bossy know it all attitude, to his refusal to share any info without having it pried from his smug face and even then, he would only utter as little as he could manage before he changed the subject , he really really grated on me He did the WRONG thing CONSTANTLY, whether it was his attitude towards Emily or his trust for IDIOTS, or just his stupid plan in the first place, and yet was always insisting that he knew best Their romance if you can even call it that didn t work for me Because he s a douchebag And because he never at any point actually indicated any real interest in her I didn t buy it And having Emily virtually throw herself at him in the end, to beg him to be with her, was appalling to me, and did a lot to undermine her character He in no way deserves her, and hell, he hasn t even really expressed an interest view spoiler At that point in the story, he hadn t even spoken to her in a month Didn t visit her, didn t answer her letters, didn t give 2 craps about how she was doing hide spoiler Fuck that guy.The secondary cast Here s where I feel like it got really painful It felt like they were all uniformly villains And hell, it still feels that way we were treated to an epilogue of supposed allies talking trash about them as they plotted secretly And this brings me to my final point of criticism Clearly, it is time for the human race to just die off.The entire world is populated with assholes That must be the case, because it has become constant in every book I have read lately Is anyone else tired of this trend in books We have some Big Apocalyptic Thing henceforth to be called BAT about to occur, and the h h are racing desperately to save the world Said world is throwing up obstacles in their path at every opportunity, and most people they run across are trying to stab them in the back What here is worth saving I know all my friends have heard this rant from me before, so I won t go into all the detail again here, but really Authors you are taking the Us Against the World thing too far If the world is really so shitty, I have a hard time justifying all the effort to save it Maybe that s just me.But in that same line, one thing this book did really take too far, for me, is the women hating Look, I know that women weren t exactly valued members of society in these historicals, but in this book, 99.999999999999999999% of the men treated all women but Emily in particular as if they were whores, idiots, slaves, or usually some combination of the three It got tiresome I can only handle the whore references I have grown to loathe the world skycladdish or the don t worry your pretty little head comments for so long Having every male in the book utter one or both of these things makes me hate every male in the book Please refer to the previous paragraph.So I am having a tough time with the review, because despite how things sound above, I didn t hate it I liked the mythology the author was creating I thought it was new and interesting I liked the mesh of magic and science reminds me quite a bit of the Blades of the Rose series, actually But I feel like the story being told is a hot mess I literally have no idea what the fuck is going on And I am tired of a heroine that I like quite a bit being constantly belittled by not just the ENTIRE WORLD but also by the HERO.I ll read the next, because I would like to see if this can actually pull together into something but for this one, I am going to give it 2.5

    3 1 2 starsThis is an absolutely enjoyable ride that will appeal to fans of urban fantasy or maybe even historical romance It is best described as an alternate history, western, magical and mystical steampunk romance with a side order of zombies Initially that made me almost overcome with excitement, like a kid given free rein of the pic n mix aisle Imagine all the possibilities all that sugary goodness, in endless varieties, and mixed together I ll take one of these and one of those and 3 1 2 starsThis is an absolutely enjoyable ride that will appeal to fans of urban fantasy or maybe even historical romance It is best described as an alternate history, western, magical and mystical steampunk romance with a side order of zombies Initially that made me almost overcome with excitement, like a kid given free rein of the pic n mix aisle Imagine all the possibilities all that sugary goodness, in endless varieties, and mixed together I ll take one of these and one of those and ten of those But eventually you just realize that the pic n mix aisle really is all bottom tier candy At the end of the day, you d probably trade it all in for one perfectly crafted peanut butter cup view spoiler That s such a lie I could eat root beer barrels and cinnamon buttons until my teeth fall out But for the purposes of this metaphor, just pretend that I have snooty taste in candy hide spoiler That s exactly what happened to me about halfway through this book The zombies make a very brief appearance, the steampunk is barely even there, the history isn t all that alternate, and the magic isn t very well explained view spoiler And by the end, everything gets evenoverwhelming with the addition of gods and goddesses, possible alien involvement, secret societies, and government conspiracies hide spoiler If any one of these elements had been givenattention, I think that this would be a better novel However, I still had a great time reading this.This book takes place in an alternate history, reconstruction era United States, where magic and magical practice permeate every branch of society Emily Edwards is a backwoods, traditional witch who is slowly being run out of business by a fancy pants mail order company Orphaned as a baby, Emily was taken in and trained in old fashioned home magic by her Pap, but now they are barely surviving Out of desperation she decides to meddle with the feelings of a local wealthy lumberman to secure his hand in marriage, but nothing goes as planned Making matters worse is the knowing disapproval of high brow warlock Dreadnought Stanton, installed in her rural town to spread awareness about proper magical use Soon Emily and Stanton are caught up in a magical mystery which will lead them across the United States, and may reveal secrets about Emily s past.The lead characters, while maybe not quite likable, feel well formed and real The author has a real talent for humorous back and forth type dialogue that kept me laughing And the pacing is just perfect for about of the book Toward the end, however, it started to feel artificially slowed in what I assumed was some author planning for book two Emily becomes uncharacteristically secretive and Stanton becomes uncharacteristically self sacrificing But then I got really confused when the ending itself was just a big ol mess of revelation and loose ends crammed into a neat little package It reminds me of nothing so much as this view spoiler Why is the magic returned simply because the evil pump is destroyed What about the black stuff Haven t they been pumping it into the Earth for years Wouldn t it still be there Or at least take a while to get cleaned out What about the stockpile of magical energy that was already stolen Does that need to be returned hide spoiler Maybe these questions will be answered in book two.The romance also doesn t play a major role until the end, when it becomes a bit too corny for me But I have a low tolerance for these things and I suspect that the vast majority of readers will be charmed This is M.K Hobson s debut and I think that it is a successful one I will most likely be reading book two For a funny little video about the usage of rein vs reign, click here Perfect Musical PairingBarnaby Bright The StoneThis song has a touch of country flavor that I love paired with this book And the lyrics make me like the romancethan I did while actually reading it

    When I first heard about The Native Star, I expected it to be an epic fantasy tale in the sweeping style of the Lord of the Rings, or the Wheel of Time Oh boy, was I in for a surpise It s like setting out to watch The Last Airbender and instead ending up at a screening of A Knight s Tale Jillian s review first inspired me to pick this book up I read the review, I read the blurb, I got excited However, I was still expecting it to be a weighty tome, along the lines of thou shalt fulfill thy When I first heard about The Native Star, I expected it to be an epic fantasy tale in the sweeping style of the Lord of the Rings, or the Wheel of Time Oh boy, was I in for a surpise It s like setting out to watch The Last Airbender and instead ending up at a screening of A Knight s Tale Jillian s review first inspired me to pick this book up I read the review, I read the blurb, I got excited However, I was still expecting it to be a weighty tome, along the lines of thou shalt fulfill thy epic destiny through thy quest thou shalt vanquish evil, rescue innocents and Become A Hero ine This book took all my expectations and kicked them in the ass, to emerge on the other side triumphant and grinning Somebody called this book witchpunk, and I think it s an insanely accurate term for what this book represents, a seamless blend of technology and witchcraft, fantasy and historical fiction You can almost taste the dust and new world smell of 19th century America Hobson handles her worldbuilding with a very light touch She manages to give her readers all the details without overwhelming them with information She sets up an entire alternate world, with believable characters, religious and magical systems, and societal strata, without once making you feel like you re reading an encyclopedia Even when she makes her characters give some necessary background, Stanton s pedantic recital is believable Instead of being annoyed by the lecture, we are as eager for him to tell us about the Aberrancies and the credomancers and the rest of it all we wait as breathlessly as Emily for him to tell us , tell us everything And I fell in love with Emily and Stanton The rest of the characters were great too, but Emily and Stanton stole the show, as they were meant to do Neither of them was perfect, but both of them were absolutely perfect If you know what I mean I expected Dreadnought Stanton oh, that name to be cold and distant and mysterious and powerful He turned out to be stuffy, formal, pedantic, sort of grandoise and absolutely ad or ab le Besides, how can you not fall in love with a book whose hero is called Dreadnought And Emily s a star too not full of spun sugary goodness, but a girl with spine andthan a few quirks of her own She wears a stinky buffalo coat, casts a love spell for mercenary reasons, is blindly prejudices against Indians of the Native American sort and wilfully stubborn I love the fact that she s a backwards witch with very little knowledge of the world, but a lot of spunk I love the fact that she has this big ass stone in her hand, and it doesn t give her one single extra super power I love the fact that she sasses Stanton all the time, and I love the fact that she confesses to her love for him without sounding like a sappy fool I am very parsimonious with my praise for romance these days, so it s a big thing when I say that I totally fell in love with the idea of Emily and Stanton as a couple Together they made me laugh, made me sigh, made me believe This book could have been the heavy, serious epic fantasy I was expecting it to be, and it would still probably have been an interesting book, but it would have been a great loss to literary society I love this book just exactly as it is It is an ass kicking, prank playing romp of an adventure that manages to make you feel good even during its darkest parts Thank you, Jillian, for finding this gem, and passing it along
