Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.
Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.
Cali has been taken…
Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?
Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?
I was given a free copy of this book for an honest review.
I haven’t read the first two books in the Star Child series yet but there was enough background information in The Star Catcher to get me up to date. I could tell that book #2 ended with a cliffhanger because this book started out with a bang and it never slowed down.
I often have trouble keeping up in books with other worlds, but Stephanie Keyes does a great job of describing her world and all of the different types of beings. Some of the concepts, like mortal vs. immortal, could be pretty complex but she explains them in a way that it is easy to understand.
The characters are interesting and each has their own strengths. While I enjoyed the love stories, I would have liked the Gabe/Singer story a little more if there had been a little courtship rather than instant falling in love. They’re both such fun characters!
If you like young adult fantasy, you’ll definitely like The Star Catcher. It’s a good book on its own but I plan on going back and reading the first two in the series (and then I’ll probably read this one again).
