Eclipse the Skies (Ignite the Stars, #2)

Ia Cōcha never thought she’d be working for the Olympus Commonwealth. But that was before she found out her trusted brother Einn was trying to tear apart the universe. Now, Ia, the Blood Wolf of the Skies, has agreed to help the Royal Star Force on one condition: when she finds him, she gets to kill Einn herself.

Brinn Tarver has just come to terms with her Tawny identity when the public lashes out against her people, crushing her family. At her breaking point, she starts to question everything she believes in—including Ia.

After the death of his mentor, Knives Adams is doing his best to live up to a role he didn’t ask for as Aphelion’s new headmaster. Still, with each new step deeper into war, he feels torn between his duties and the pull of Ia’s radical—sometimes criminal—ideas.

As they fight to keep darkness from eclipsing the skies, their unpredictable choices launch this breathtaking sequel to explosive new heights.

5 Reasons to Dive into Ignite the Stars & Eclipse the Skies

  • Ia. Tough exterior, but inside she’s doing the right things. Her emotional journey is one that is unlike anything else I’ve read. I can’t wait to see what Maura puts her through in Eclipse.
  • Knives. Have you met Knives? I highly recommend you meet him. Go ahead, try to find yourself a new book boyfriend after you do. Best wishes.
  • Maura talking about how writing Eclipse warmed…broke her black heart
  • This review from Kirkus. If you know anything about Kirkus, they do not say nice things consistently. This is well earned praise.
  • Fill that Illuminae/Aurora Rising/Lunar Chronicles shaped hole in your heart with a book full of characters you’ll come to love, drama you’ll bite your nails over, and endings you won’t soon forget.


Win signed & personalized hardcovers with sprayed edges & swag plus a basket of Maura’s favorite things, including a Prince Robot (Saga) Funko Pop, Cowboy Bebop sticker, and purple Life Saver watch (50% of the proceeds go to support cancer patients!).

    Finished and review today–5 stars plus!!! I will definitely read book 2 and I had my library agree to pre-order it!

  2. Haven’t entered a giveaway in a very long time, but this one looks so good! I remember when I saw Ignite the Stars had been in Uppercase Box and I went back to buy it in their shop but it was sold out. :'(

    Really, though, if you had told me five or six years ago that I’d like space themed books, I would’ve just laughed and said “never”. But I have enjoyed so many – Jay and Amie, Amie and Meagan, Megan Crewes, Marissa Meyer, Alexandra Monir, Veronica Roth, Alexa Donne, and more (not to mention some unread Melissa Landers and Pierce Brown giving me side-eye from my shelves). I even read 2001: A Space Odyssey last month! Thanks for the chance. 🙂
