Local Star is a polyamorous space opera with a fast-paced, action-packed adventure that's sure to punch you in the feels. It follows guttergirl Triz as she saves her hub from invaders from the Cyberbionautic Alliance, all the while negotiating her rekindled romance with Kalo, her ex who's returned from battle and won't stop hanging around the wrenchworks.
What the critics say
"Local Star is a heartfelt, heartwarming polyam romance driven by mystery, intrigue and action, whose grease-stained main character works to repair more than just ships. Ogden assembles a universe of complex people and problems, then drills down to a story about love, family, self-acceptance and forgiveness." (Valerie Valdes, author of Chilling Effect)
"A smart, witty exploration of what it means to be a family, Local Star combines the thoughtful humanism of A Closed and Common Orbit with a delightfully quirky setting reminiscent of the best works of Bruce Sterling. For years now, members of the SFF community have known that Aimee Ogden is a writer who can be counted on to deliver insightful stories packed with beautiful, flowing prose. The day after this book is published, everyone will know." (Robyn Bennis, author of The Guns Above)
"I pick up everything I see with Ogden’s name on it and I am never disappointed! Local Star sits in that lovely intersection of the personal and the operatic, hinting at intergalactic-level conflict while remaining deeply wedded to the life and loves of its heroine - a former guttergirl turned ship mechanic who doesn’t meet a problem she can’t barrel through. Sweet and romantic. Highly recommended!" (Samantha Mills, short fiction author)
