Ignite the Stars – Maura Milan – #1

April 19, 2019

Across the universe, she’s the monster with many names. But no one realizes that infamous outlaw Ia Cocha is only a seventeen-year-old girl. A criminal mastermind and unrivaled pilot, Ia has spent her life terrorizing the Olympus Commonwealth, the imperialist nation that destroyed her home. When the Commonwealth captures her and her true identity is exposed, they see Ia’s age and talent as an opportunity: by forcing her to serve them, they will prove that no one is beyond their control. Soon Ia is trapped at the Commonwealth’s military academy, desperately plotting her escape. But new acquaintances–including Brinn, a seemingly average student with a closely-held secret, and their charming flight master, Knives–cause Ia to question her own alliances. Can she find a way to escape the Commonwealth’s clutches before these bonds deepen? And outside the Academy, there are forces of evil at work, machinations that even the great Ia Cocha doesn’t know about– things that threaten not only the Commonwealth, but the entire fabric of the universe itself… (Description taken from the book: Ignite the Stars.
