Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In Unfathomable Chance, Diana’s 23rd birthday seems like any other day–until a cat begins talking to her.
Suddenly she finds herself in the middle of space’s political intrigue, a bracelet glued to her wrist that holds the Heart of the Cosmos. If she accepts its power, she’ll have to find a mate (and the suitors are coming!), but the bracelet wants something else, something much more dangerous.
She’ll have to solve the mystery if she ever wants to return to a (semi) normal life, preferably without getting killed in the process.
I found the story enjoyable, the bit of romance nice, and the mystery worth flipping through the pages.
While I did enjoy the story, I found the writing, while free of typos, occasionally bumped me out of the story. The dialog, in particular, generally had a snappy edge to it, but overly formal construction at times was hard to reconcile. I might expect it more of the aliens, but coming from Diana and her human friends was odd.
Despite that (and it’s not nearly frequent enough to be completely off-putting), the story was intriguing and well constructed. I’d certainly be interested to see Diana’s journey continue, especially since I felt she took the easy way out in the end (though I fully understand that reasoning).
If you love light sci-fi and a bit of romance, I would definitely recommend you check out Unfathomable Chance. It’s a fun romp into the universe.
**This book is clean, from what I recall.
