Series: Starfall, #1
The day an Ungifted witnesses his star fall from the heavens is a moment that shapes the rest of his life. Finding one’s star means choosing a gift, and having a gift means a better life- especially for Ducasus and Malleus. Born into slavery on a Flare’s plantation, the twin brothers spent their youth watching the sky, waiting, wishing, hoping for the day when their ticket to freedom might come. When it does, it is nothing like either of them ever expected.
Starfall is an exciting, adventure-filled journey inside a world filled with giants, monsters, and races not yet known. A new mythology begins now.
Starfall is a dynamic, explosive tale that packs a punch. This novel is a force to be reckoned with.
After reading the synopsis, I knew I had to have my hands on this book. And while I'll admit, the beginning threw me off, and I was confused, everything settled out towards the middle and ending. A new mythology is brought forth in Starfall (side note: how awesome is that?), and things take a bit to get set up. But once we learn everything, this novel takes off like a rocket and never lets up. It's impossible to put down, and it consumes your mind. Very epic and highly addictive!
The idea of a slave discovering his destiny is quite interesting! I'd never seen it done before, and I was definitely curious to see how everything would play out. What I wasn't expecting was loads of awesome and peculiar creatures, fast-paced scenes that kept me up late into the night, and wonderful characters that were fantastic to be on an adventure with. I can't tell you how happy I am with Starfall - for fans of Percy Jackson and Shadow and Bone! You won't be able to put Starfall down!
That. Ending. Woah. I keep mentioning it, but it's insane how crazy it is to quit reading this book - it's nearly impossible. I hated to tear my eyes away from the page, and the ending of the book was completely wrapped around my mind and wholly captivated me. I need the next book pronto! Loved it!
Overall, Starfall is an epic, stunning tale that will pull readers in and never let them go. Needing some awesome fantasy in your life? Look no further; Starfall has you covered.
