Acorna's rebels left me feeling disappointed. I really enjoyed the first couple Acorna books, but the last few haven't been as great.
To be honest, by the time I got this one, I had nearly forgotten all that happened in the last two books before. It took me a few chapters to remember where we had left off.
Okay, my main problem was the storyline became very shallow. All the difficulties and emergencies had easy solutions, no one had any trouble with finding them or carring them out.
Also, where's Aari? And what is happening with the others that we've been following for books now? We spent the entire time with Acorna, with no word whatsoever on anything else that's happening. In the beginning Acorna is working on rebuilding her planet, but that is quickly pushed aside in the story, and not returned to. Surely the work would be at least an interesting sidenote?
In the end, everything just seemed too pat, too easy. I won't spoil the ending, but it left me hanging too much for me to have enjoyed it.
So, to be fair, there's nothing badly wrong with this book, as it stands by itself. As a novel, alone, I think it deserved 3 stars. It's only when you compare this book to earlier ones from the series that you realize that, although it's good, the first few were far, far better.
