Book Review: Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson

A few weeks ago, I posted my first ever blog book review. I thought it worked rather well, so I'm posting another one today.

Today's book is Unfathomable Chance by K.T. Munson. I interviewed K.T. a couple of months back, and she sent me a free copy of her latest book as a thank-you. So, of course, I reviewed it, and now I'm going to re-post that review right here.

First, let's have some stats!

Book Title:
 Unfathomable Chance
Author: K.T. Munson
Age Category: Young Adult
Genre: Sci-Fi
Number of Pages (According to Amazon): 194
My Rating: 4 out of 5

My overall feeling was that I really enjoyed this book. The strange thing is, I'm not exactly sure why.

Unfathomable Chance is a little bit like the movie Jupiter Ascending -- a normal human discovers that she is the Empress of the Universe, and must avoid the evildoers who would wish her harm, meeting several weird and wonderful extraterrestrial creatures along the way. And yes, there is a hot alien boyfriend as well.

I found the various species and worlds very imaginative, but I felt that the book suffered from a lack of description. I couldn't really picture a lot of the scenes in my mind. Also, the ending was somewhat anticlimactic. Finally, I was a little bit leery of the fact that the protagonist is 23, even though this book is marketed as YA (it turned out to be not that big of a deal, though).

Despite all this, Unfathomable Chance pulled me into the story with both hands. I really cared about what was going to happen to Diana and her friends, and I found myself always wanting to read "just one more chapter". This is the X factor which differentiates a good book from a mediocre one, and for me, Unfathomable Chance had it. Because of this, I decided to only dock one star for the issues mentioned above, which means that this book measures up at a rather lovely four stars.
