    One thought on “Stellarnet Rebel”

    1. Duin is a rebel. A revolutionary. A freedom fighter.Duin is an orator, a tailor, a hunter, an insurgent, an elder and a father. He is also Glin, a bi-pedal alien with amphibious qualities seeking justice and assistance for his people from the Earth inhabitants of a remote space station in the same sector as his home planet. The Glin have been invaded by the Tikati, an insect race intent on mass genocide and enslavement of the Glin in order to control the resources of their home world.It is on th [...]

    2. Ms. Hilton made a huge effort with the worldbuilding in Stellarnet Rebel, and her characters play off it beautifully. The Glin, a semi-aquatic alien refugee race whose plight is given the Stellarnet spotlight by blogger Genny O'Riordan, are a fascinating bunch. Two males in particular, Duin and Belloc, who feature prominently in the story, couldn't be more different from one another if they tried, yet both point to a common underlying strength in this seemingly beaten species. They have unfinish [...]

    3. I found this book to be a very enjoyable read. While we step into Genny's world from the get-go, I found I was able to follow the new terms in this futuristic world rather easily. The plot was solid and the story unfolded in a perfect pace. It was smooth and easy when it needed to be, romantic at proper moments, and action-packed in a sense that any person can enjoy.Due to the nature of some content, such as certain "language" and sexual themes, I don't suggest this for anyone under 18. The sexu [...]

    4. 3 starsially would have been just under 4, but the endingwell, I'll just say I didn't care for it. Also I'd say this is more sci fi with romantic elements then sci fi romance

    5. Stellarnet Rebel by J.L. Hilton is really good science fiction romance. The heroine is a blogger, which made it particularly fun for me! Not many blogger/heroines in science fiction romance. Or anywhere.Genny O'Riordan is the blogger. She "shifts" in from Earth to Asteria to find a story that will make her blog, that is kick it up into the Stellarnet Top 100. That's her big dream. The story she wants to break is a universal story of corporate greed, just moved out to the deep-space colony of Ast [...]

    6. Blogger, Genny O’Riordan moves to Asteria to join her current boyfriend, to report on life in the colony and to find a story that will propel her blog into the big league. During her tour of the colony, she comes across her first alien—a Glin. She’s fascinated and immediately sees the seeds of a great topic for her blog.With Genny’s help and friendship, the plight of Duin’s race is brought center front, but there are some people who don’t support her cause. Her strength of conviction [...]

    7. For more (mini) reviews check out the thesisterstale @ blogspotLet me just get this out here right now: science fiction is my favorite. I’m a sci-fi geek, especially if it’s set in space. So, when I came across Stellarnet Rebel, I was excited. I didn't love it as much as I hoped I would, but it was still a decent read. Once the story clicked more for me toward the middle, I found myself turning the pages more quickly. Genny, the protagonist of this book, is fantastic. I loved her from the [...]

    8. Stellarnet Rebel highlights what a blogger can accomplish when she takes on injustice. Genevieve O’Riordan comes to Asteria Colony space station to highlight living conditions on the station. All of that changes when she meets Duin. Duin wants help for his people. Their villages are being destroyed, their water stolen, and they are being put into slavery. Duin comes to the market every day to tell his story and ask for help. Genevieve changes the focus of her blog and tells Duin’s story. It [...]

    9. I was amazed at how hard it is to put this book down. The plot is quite gripping, because the main characters face so many obstacles and have to grow spiritually and emotionally during their struggles. The author does a wonderful job of creating very three-dimensional characters who are easy to identify with, even if they are from other planets! She touches on issues that plague our own civilization now, such as indefinite detention, torture, non violent resistance, equality, women's rights, hum [...]

    10. This was a very good science fiction romance and I loved that the main character was a blogger this something you do not see very often in this genre.This book was extremely hard to put down and was full of twists and turns that kept me as a reader hooked.The author done a very good job in developing her characters and I found myself caring about what happened to the characters next and feeling what they were feeling when they were feeling it. The romance between the characters was well thought [...]

    11. I really enjoyed Stellarnet Rebel and can’t wait to read the next book in the series. JL Hilton’s wonderful world building brings Genny, Duin and Belloc’s struggles to life. Blogger Genny travels to Asteria looking for a big story. This is where she finds it in Duin, a Glin trying to aid his people by asking for help from apathetic humans who are more interested in what they can get out of him. From there the adventure builds to a satisfying resolution that begs for more. I found the three [...]

    12. It's been awhile since I've read straight up science fiction, but this was a great way to get back into the genre. Fantastic world building with a particularly well done alien race. Hilton takes current social and political events--such as how blogging and social media have torn down privacy--and extends them in a way that is both frightening and yet completely natural for the characters inhabiting her world. A great read!

    13. Excellent world-building, both of the future human colony of Asteria and the alien Glin. Engaging characters and plot. A nice build from a lone alien standing on a soapbox, to achieving the freedom of his world.Fave quote, Duin to the human children: "Shall I do the Tempest? Or do you want to hear The Little Lost Eel again?"

    14. I haven't read a cyber-futuristic romance in a long time, and this one was really good. The world-building was solid, and I enjoyed Hilton's vision of how our language will progress in the years to come. Highly recommend this enjoyable read.
