Reeling from the latest attack by a mysterious enemy, the Quatra Fleet Academy is finally admitting students from every planet in the solar system after centuries of exclusivity.

Hotshot pilot Vesper, an ambitious Tridian citizen, dreams of becoming a captain - but when she loses her spot to a brilliant, wisecracking boy from the wrong side of the asteroid belt, it makes her question everything she thought she knew. Growing up on the toxic planet Deva, Cormak will take any chance he can get to escape his dead-end life and join the Academy - even if he has to steal someone's identity to do it. Arran was always considered an outsider on icy Chetire, always dreaming of something more than a life working in the mines. Now an incoming cadet, Arran is looking for a place to belong - he just never thought that place would be in the arms of a Tridian boy. And Orelia is hiding a dark secret - she's infiltrated the Academy to complete a mission, one that threatens the security of everyone there. But if anyone finds out who she really is, it'll be her life on    the line.

These cadets will have to put their differences aside and become a team to defend their world from a cunning enemy - but the danger might be lurking closer to home than hey think...

*I want to thank The NOVL for sending me a copy of Light Years by Kass Morgan for an honest review..*

This was such an easy and light sci-fi read, following a group of people from different planets become dependable on each other. Would recommend if you're into the Illuminae files by Jay Kristoff and want a lighter read.

In Light Years we follow four students who were just admitted to the Quatra Fleet Academy. We follow Cormak, who lives in a world where they have to wear gas mask because the air isn't breathable. He grew up very poor and had to work hard to help his brother, and support each other. When he gets the chance to enter the academy he takes the opportunity, even if it means taking someone else's identity. I really loved Cormak's character, he was so fun to follow because you never knew what would happen to his character. We also follow the daughter of he Quatra Fleets elite commander, Vesper. She's aggressive and determined to become captain and prove to her mother and others that she's more than her scores. There's also Arran who received one of the highest scores in the admission test and has a crush, on someone who's father hates the people of his planet. Finally, we also have Orelia, who is hiding a big secret that can get everyone on this fleet killed. All of the characters were so interesting to follow, it always kept me on edge to see what will happen to them next. Each character is dealing with an inner demon and something they need to fight hard to accomplish.

I enjoyed how everyone in the story was portrayed, they were their own person and none blended together. I felt like each of their stores was very well done, I just wish know about more of each of their planets. We get to learn a lot about the Tridians, I hope to especially learn more about Orelia's origin. Cormak's planet would be more intriguing to learn about since its so toxic and everyone there has to where a gas mask unless they are inside a premise. Another things that I'd hope to learn more about in the next book is how all the wars were started. Which planet exactly started the wars and why. 

This was such a fun quick read, I'm glad I was able to pick it up thanks to The NOVL. I loved how diverse the book was and that it included LGBT character. Also, that plot twist at the end has me begging for the next book to be about ASAP.
