Sam was injured on his way to Australia but luckily for him, he gets to recuperate with Dr. Nick. Once he’s fit to travel, Sam, along with his new lover, Nick and future featherman, Talgerit, hit the road, hoping to complete his secret mission.

Walking to the Stars is the third installment of the Australis Liminus series. The story introduces several new characters, each of whom is interesting in their own right. When you put them together, you get a story that is, at times, funny and heartwarming. The connection between Sam and Nick is one that starts out slowly as friends but soon turns into a love neither was expecting. While there are a couple of love scenes in the story, they are not the primary focus of Walking to the Stars. The adventures these men face as they set out to finish Sam’s mission for the World Government’s new space program have the readers turning the pages waiting to see what will happen next.

Although I found Walking to the Stars an interesting book, I wondered many times if I had missed a story in the series. While there are some similarities between this story and the previous two, what was there was not enough to show a connection, at least for me, to the series. The book almost had the feel of a spin off or stand alone book, in fact, the main characters from the previous stories don’t even make an appearance till the end of this book. This is still a fun and entertaining story, however, and fans of this series shouldn’t miss it.
