2022 Book Review: Ternary

Ternary by Kristin L Stamper

YA Science Fiction, 2021 by NineStar Press, 285 Pages

What I Didn’t Like:

  • One anticlimactic scene. Thankfully it was only one. But we built up to what felt like a big moment and then just POOF it was over with one line. 
  • The beginning caught me off guard a bit because I was dropped into a world I didn’t completely understand. It took me rereading a few paragraphs again, but I caught on eventually. 
  • There is a VERY snarky, VERY sarcastic MC in this one. Sometimes she says things that she really shouldn’t. If that bothers you, call it a content warning. 

What I Did Like:

  • Love triangle with the ultimate SciFi twist? Ummmm yes please! Probably the most satisfying romance arc I’ve seen in a long time. 
  • Space and science and artificial intelligence all in one book. I mean this one is just LOADED with everything I love about science fiction. 
  • Well written action scenes. They move fast, they’re believable, and not everyone can hit everything they’re aiming for all the time. Realistic and amazing. 
  • Flawed characters. My personal favorite is snarky, grumpy Elora. As evidenced by my obsession with The Secret Garden, grumpy MCs will always have my heart. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • YA Science Fiction fans, get this one. It’s packed with everything you’ll love in one complex situation. 
  • YA Fantasy fans there’s enough to please you too! You’ll love the way this world is presented and the problems our MC finds herself in. 
  • Heck if you’re a fan of romance books that don’t play up the typical here are two perfect people in a typical heterosexual relationship angle, you’ll like this one too!

My Rating: 5 Stars

  • I just really liked how all the aspects of this one smoothly came together into one amazing book that will appeal to so many. Give this one a read!
