Self-Published Saturday (SPS) is my effort to help Independent Authors with the huge task of marketing their books. Indie authors have to do it all, from cover design to editing to marketing, and if I can help even a little with the marketing, I’m happy to do it. Below is my review of a Young Adult Coming of Age Space Opera by K.T. Munson called Unfathomable Chance.
Buckle up for a wild ride through the galaxy after Diana finds a bracelet which, once put on, she cannot get off. She soon realizes this is no ordinary piece of jewelry as she’s swept away to other galaxies and told she’s to be the Empress of the Universe, chosen by said bracelet. On top of all that, she is supposed to get married and potential suitors are already vying for her hand. This is a lot for a 23-year-old to handle, but backed up by friends along the way, she sets out to discover how to get out of this particular honor. This is the first book in the Cosmic Gem series by K.T. Munson.
I found the characters very likable, especially Diana and Kal Zed, an extremely honorable cat. The world-building is fantastic and imaginative. I struggled to put this into a category, as it appeared to be written as a Young Adult novel, although the protagonist is 23. It does fit well into the space opera genre, since it includes space warfare, romance, melodrama, and interesting alien species. The storyline is wild and fun, but also contains some dangerous and serious moments. I found it very easy to connect to the cast of characters. It is a very enjoyable coming-of-age adventure that fans of science fiction and space operas will enjoy.
You can follow Diana’s continuing adventures in Book 2, Unfathomable Plan.
I downloaded a copy of this book on Kindle Unlimited, where subscribers can read it for free. My review is voluntary and my opinions are my own.
