For the First Time, Again by Sylvain Neuvel, published 18 April 2023.
Short, because spoiler free, review about the conclusion to the Take Them to the Stars trilogy.
The 102nd Kibsu, Aster, has to continue what her foremothers started. The orphaned teenager is being chased by the US military and Alien Trackers. The only guidance she has is an old diary. With help from a very unexpected corner, she tries her best to continue her legacy.
In between Aster’s story there are short chapters going back to the beginning of the Kibsu, to the first of the one hundred and how it all started.
It’s a fast-paced book about destiny and fulfilling one’s purpose in life, full of pop-culture references of the 1990s and early 2000s. I enjoyed this as much as the other books in the series and Neuvel’s Themis Files trilogy.
4/5 Harpy Eagles
