Chasing the Stars

Publisher: Penguin Random House

Review

Olivia and her twin brother Aidan are heading back to Earth, following the virus that wiped out the rest of their crew and family. Nathan is part of a community heading in the opposite direction. 

But on their journey, Nathan's ship is attacked and most of the community killed. Their lives unexpectedly collided, Nathan and Olivia are instantly attracted to each other: deeply, head-over-heels - like nothing they have ever experienced. But not everyone is pleased.

Surrounded by rumours, deception, even murder, is it possible to live out a happy ever after . . . ?

Malorie Blackman's newest novel is big, bold and breathtakingly good. Told in alternating perspectives, every chapter builds the tension and drama, hurtling towards a heart-breaking climax.

Blackman's skilful retelling of Shakespeare's Othello in a futuristic space setting is thrilling and romantic. The characters are memorable, and readers won't be able to tell whose side they are on - and who they should trust.
