Review of No Ordinary Star by MC Frank

A soldier is summoned to the North Pole, days before the year changes, told to fix the great Clock for a celebration. He has no idea what to do.
A girl, hunted for the crime of being born, almost dies out on the ice. She is rescued by the last polar bear left alive.
A library waits for them both, a library built over a span of a hundred years, forgotten in the basement of an ice shack.
The world hasn't known hunger or sickness in hundreds of years. It has also forgotten love and beauty.
The year is 2525.

Inspired by the short stories of Ray Bradbury, this futuristic novel is set in a world where Christmas -among other things- is obsolete and a Clock is what keeps the fragile balance of peace.

Written in three installments, this is the breathtaking and sensual story of how two unlikely people change the world, and each other, one book at a time. 

My Review: 5 stars
This story is beautifully written. From the first word you are pulled into the world. You want to know everything and know all of it now. I read this in one sitting and quickly moved onto the second book, but I am loving the story. Felix is stubborn against the truth he's seeing, Astra unashamed of what she knows, and the two of them are faced with the prospect of learning the truth of what the world is really like. Highly recommended!
