    Give me a good dirty fast paced post apocalyptic book any day But this one was great The imagination this author has is astounding The suspense was perfect With the dystopian novel boom it is hard to find one that is as truly as uniue as this one And it is Ms Roberts' debut?? Wow Can't wait for from her Great depth and interesting characters to boot The author makes you feel the emotion and pain that is happening throughout Wonderfully written Hauntingly grippingYou need to read this and you better make sure you have a couple hours to finish it because you won't be able to stop until it is finished Krissy 4 stars

    And The Stars Fell Silent is a dark suspenseful dystopian story that’s set in the year 2040 when the Sun is about to die and so is our planet But the scientists have come up with a way to save some of the population by building huge domes over some of the biggest cities Only those who are “useful” to the society are allowed to stay inside and the others are doomed And the full story of how it all happened is told in the first part of the bookIt’s sad no terrifying how the new world order was set after the decision was made to build the domes How people were forced out of their homes so that “worthy” ones could move in and stay why they are escorted out of the dome to die How everyone tried to continue their normal life with the shadow of doom over them without any proof that the domes would actually work or the Earth wouldn’t be destroyed together with the Sun How families were torn apart when men were sent to a special training so they could become members of the National Force and came home different people or barely human at all And especially how Breeding Grounds left some women with a poor choice – die outside the dome or accept the dull destiny of a breeding machine“Most of the women embraced this new role knowing that it was this or death and they were lucky to even be in the dome However some women chose to perish with the sun over becoming a revolving door for dicks and infants”There was one scene that I found especially disturbing when Sky meets a friend of hers while she is passing the tests and finds out that the girl was sentenced to become one of those women“So the next time you want to complain know that your life is absolutely fucking perfect You get to stay in your beautiful house with your brilliant father and sexy boyfriend You will have fancy jobs and get to do whatever the hell you want while I spend my days on my back getting a train run on me by the assholes that run this place”If you don’t mind a bit of darkness in a book you might want to give this one a try I like finding something new in familiar genres and I look for all kinds of emotions in books so I liked how this one was different from other dystopian reads that I know The only similar thing on my mind was the movie Sunshine that actually has the same horrifying atmosphere on the ship and those awful deaths of the crew But it was the final scene when the Sun explodes with light that was stuck in my head It’s the same apocalyptic feel of these two stories The only thing that I didn’t uite agree with was the purpose of Breeding Grounds The domes were already overpopulated and considering that only healthy people were allowed to stay and that it was territory that they needed rather than people it was strange to create such a place and spend resources on itI got a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review

    An average dystopia with a good premise but uninteresting characters and eventsThe sun will end soon Several biodomes were created to help humankind survive Of course not everybody can enter the domes they are only for talented and useful people Luckily for Skyler her father is a very good scientist Finally the sun disappears and Skyler has to deal with murderers a dangerous virus and the fact her loved ones just disappearedThe premise and the title were very good and I enjoyed the beginning of the story It was too much telling over showing but it explained well the situation After that it started to become a complicated read I didn't care at all about the characters each of them felt like a cliché the beautiful smart heroine the blond big boobed bitch the very dedicated dad the abusive jerk and they lacked true voice and depth The only point of view from outside the dome was a very good idea but as I didn't connect with the blank characters it added nothing for me to the story The writing and the characters totally gave a YA tone to the book but the language was sometimes rude plenty of fck and bitch There were also some undertones that bothered me like making jokes about the girl who slept with half the guys a breeding center with one man per day and you can't refuse him in a dome where you're concerned about overpopulation? or some abuse that was put away like nothing by the character who suffered it overall I don't recommend the book if you care about women' conditions and I'm not talking about dystopian conditions but about the way an author writes about them I would have probably enjoyed this book if it was less focused on Skyler's uninteresting adventures and if it wasn't mixing stupid violence apocalypse and a terrible illness maybe focus on just one thing and develop it well? It's probably not a bad book and the dystopian society was believable but too many things bothered me and I finished it just because it was a smooth read

    And the Stars Fell Silent is the first of a planned series of books recounting the end of the world In this dystopian tale we follow Skylar Whitfield through harrowing events culminating in the end of the world as we know it A cataclysm of galactic proportions befalls the Earth leading to the inevitable destruction of all life upon it Skylar and her family take up shelter in a government built dome which offers them the only chance of survival Once there things go from bad to worse forcing Skylar to risk her life to uncover a deadly conspiracy that threatens the lives of all survivorsI wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this tale though I understood it was going to be a dystopian thriller from the blurb Sadly the current book cover art doesn’t do this book justice as I might have passed over it if not given the opportunity to read it Hopefully an upgrade is planned because this book is a much impressive read than the artwork suggests or I had even hoped it would beI really enjoyed the uotes from Lord Byron’s immortal poem Darkness that opens each new chapter It adds weight and gravity to the bleak situation the characters find themselves in Although Skylar is clearly the lead character it was a nice change of pace to see the story through the eyes of other characters’ such as Pastor Tim and John Malcom The Malcom bits were incredibly moving I felt his dread as he struggled to find a way to survive a dying world along with his young daughter Though slightly overdone flashbacks were used to great effect in this story allowing us to explore the lives and motivations of many of its players There were a few editorial errors in the text but nothing that would prevent readers from enjoying this bookAnd the Stars Fell Silent is definitely a thrilling read that held my attention from start to finish I am intrigued by the unresolved world crisis and would definitely read the next part of the story so I can see what happens next to Skylar and Co4 StarsDisclaimer I was given a complimentary copy of this book for a fair and honest review

    I read this book in one day that's how much I like it Or actually I was blessed with enough free time to read on through for once and luckily this story was well worth it so I did And The Stars Fell Silent is an awesome debut and ever SO recommendableFirst off I love the title and I would probably have chosen this in a bookstore on the title alone Nevertheless I came across a reuest for honest reviews and asked for a copy on the hunch that this would be a treat It most definitely was It's also a ghastly tale about the end of the world as we know it set in Washington state in a not to distant future in fact just a mere 25 years from today in 2040 It's also the story of how the fittest survive and by which measures It's terrifying sad suspenseful and imaginative A truly compelling apocalyptic dystopiansci fiEach chapter starts off uoting Lord Byron's poem Darkness Usually that seems like nothing than a fancy gimmick In this book however it's both very fitting and a brilliant reminder of impending doom in that it acts as a parallel storyline promising to collide with the main oneSkyler and Kellan would never in their lives leave Washington and many of their friends wouldn't live to see their nineteenth birthdays storyline chapter 1Morn came and went—and came and brought no day Darkness by Lord Byron chapter 2I love how the story drew me in from the very first chapter Regardless of the gloomy accent from the Byron uote the story itself starts off very sweet and idyllic with Skyler the main character wanting to preserve a rainy summer's day Skyler comes off so sweet and likable as we get acuainted with the setting through her memories of childhood family and The Day of The Big Announcement Also within very few pages Trinity manages to make me care about and appreciate her MC and that in itself is a great accomplishment given that Skyler is a teenager and could easily have been defaulted to the standard type sassy lovesick and annoying yet about to save the world Skyler comes off as a real person living in a real world drawing from actual memories Obviously her world is changing in fact the change is impending and yet she's a believable character throughout acting and reacting like I imagine anyone in her position might during such circumstances The narration is third person omniscient and yet it works well in order to create interesting characters I especially enjoyed the parts about Ava and her family as well as the part where Adam is given a voiceI especially enjoyed part 1 The selection of who was deemed worthy of survival and the fright for what was to come felt disturbing gory and horrifyingly imminent and for the most part I found the entire book rather solid and well justified Trinity's writing really shines when describing levels of despair and injustice and in regards to conveying memories though dialogue and accounts of present events aren't always as seamless The premise is disturbingly gory yet brilliant as it moves the story forward in a way that makes the pages turn almost on their own account At least I was plentifully engaged although there was than the occasional typo Mostly in the form of missing words or letters but also some misused ones as eg walked passed instead of walked past as well as a few inconsistencies eg The Washington Dome is #5 during construction but Dome #4 when in function Fortunately none of this is of major importance and as the typos will most likely be fixed in the next update it doesn't subtract much especially as the story is rather stunningly concocted While there are uite a lot of side stories I would have liked to know about what actually happened when the Sun died especially in regards to climate visibility and whether it actually affected the Domites onwards Inside the Dome it seemed like the biggest challenge was forming a new world order but then again the storyline does only stretch over a short period of time In a way it seemed that multiple plot lines made it harder to give enough attention to everything and yet the story is both entertaining on it's own account and a great offset for an entertaining series I really don't have much else to say against it and nevertheless it's an amazing debut The story is stunningly imagined and the premise so compelling that I'll definitely be looking forward to the next book in this series or for that matter anything by Trinity Roberts

    Trinity Roberts’ 2015 novel And the Stars Fell Silent is a dystopian novel set in 2040 In the novel an 18 year old girl named Skyler and her boyfriend must face living in a world where the sun has burned out To prepare for the sun’s burning out which was predicted by scientists within the novel two years earlier the United States has been divided into five different domes Skyler is forced to adapt to life in a dome based in the state of Washington Since there are only five domes people from multiple states must make their way over to where the domes are based and then people are given tests to determine if they are eligible to live in the dome or not The novel was a uick read and comes across as a classified young adult novel then as a dystopian novel The only characteristics that make it dystopian are the setting of 2040 and the idea of living with the sun burnt out as realistically this won’t occur for many hundreds of years down the line Certain plot points aren’t necessary to the story as well such as a few times when it’s mentioned Skyler and her boyfriend make love in between them dealing with all the drama and changes that occur to their world while they are living under the dome This tells us nothing about the world they live in and adds nothing to the main focus of the story and it can only be seen as filler materialThe novel features a lot of characters mentioned and it can be hard to keep track of who’s who especially when we are able to get the inner thoughts of than one character rather than the author focusing only on Skyler’s ideas and feelings In fact in three chapters we hear the thoughts of a worried father who is forced to live outside the dome with his six year old daughter Considering neither of these two characters interact with any of our main characters it is curious why they are included at all Not only do parts of the story itself and the characters dissatisfy there are also grammatical errors that can be painful to read uotation marks are forgotten from time to time and commas are either misused or forgotten For example during a mob scene a character yells out “‘You shot my friend bitch’ A man’s voice said angrily” Roberts 27 There should be a comma after friend Having to get past grammar mistakes made reading the book appear messy and that it was hastily put together without being looked over before publishing So because of the novel’s lack of dystopian uality when it promises to be dystopian on the back the addition of various unnecessary characters and having the minimalist if any at all of the novel edited I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would It’s supposed to be the first in a trilogy so perhaps it gets better in time

    This is a genre that I have previously detoured from just because I don't like to think of the end of the world I prefer happy things lol Honestly I am very happy I took the leap of faith and read ATSFSTrinity Roberts has created a world that grabs you by the back of the neck and drags you in Kick and scream if you want but you truly need to be in this world ATSFS follows Kellan and Skyler two young lovers who face living in a bio dome They are extremely lucky to be among those chosen to live in the dome Not all of their friends were given that same opportunityTrinity Roberts throws in a HUGE plot twist Well actually a couple Read how Kellan and Skylar have to say good bye to friends and loved ones that are not deemed worthy to live in the dome See how they fight to survive how they fight to hold on to their love and how they see the world that they grew up in change so swiftly around themThe thing I found so compelling about this book was that Trinity Roberts was able to make me care for side characters I cared so much about a man named John and his young daughter Ava that I have actually begged Trinity to write their story I can honestly say I would read that book even though I don't think that the Dystopian Genre is for me But I can't turn down the chance to broaden my reading views nor to help a new Indie author I love doing bothI was given a copy of ATSFS in exchange for a HONEST review

    The sun has burnt out and the world has to find a way to survive without it The answer? Bio domes The story takes place in one of 4 domes created in the USA and followers the teenage Skyler and her family as they adjust to life under the domeI enjoyed reading this book and found that myself turning the pages very uickly It is well written and the author trinity Roberts has clearly put a lot of effort into writing it The writing style is very reminiscent of Stephen King but with less of the waffling that King has become known for The characters were all well developed believable and most importantly interesting to read aboutThere were a lot of flashbacks which at times were somewhat intrusive to the story and it did end rather abruptlyAll in all it was an exciting story and was a lot of fun to read I look forward to the next one in the series
