Blog Tour: Giveaway and Book Review: The Star Catcher by Stephanie Keyes





Title: The Star Catcher (The Star Child series, Book 3)
Author: Stephanie Keyes
Publication Date: October 20, 2013
Genre: Fantasy, Mythology
Publisher: Inkspell Publishing

Blurb:

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 that 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?

Kayla's Thoughts:

*Sigh* What can I say about this third and final installment in The Star Child series. Nothing much, actually, except to say that I absolutely am in love with the story and the characters and just every aspect of this wonderful piece of work.

To be honest, I had never heard of The Star Child series of books before getting the opportunity to read this book. So when I was also given the first two along with this last one, so that I could start from the beginning and gain a better perspective of what I would be reading with this third book in the series, I absolutely dove in with great vigor.

So much has been revealed throughout this entire series, things pertaining to Alex and his lineage, Calienta and her own lineage, a prophecy pertaining to the two and the fate of the Children of Danu, and secrets that have been kept for years. And even with this last part of the story, there will be twists and turns to satisfy the reader while also trying to tie up loose ends.

This book is written in many different points of view, giving us an almost 360 perspective of what is going on. I love this. Mainly because we get to know what each character is going through and their general thoughts about their situations. We get to delve into their minds. YAY! I LOVE DELVING!!

I also love the fact that Gabe is given a little love interest in this book. Okay, so maybe it is a BIG love interest, but still...it's kinda cute.

Alex and Calienta will have to fight if they want to be reunited, and the fate of the world depends on them winning that fight. I LOVE IT!! But the thing is, they have so much support from the people they love. I BELIEVE IN THEM!!!

Overall, I absolutely have enjoyed this series and this last book especially, and I just know from the bottom of my heart that this author is going to wow us even more with future works.

Verdict:

There are basically no more words for this book. Well, at least two more. They are literally chanting in my head at this very moment. "Read it! Read it!" So please, listen to the voices stating those words in my mind. Pick up this book...this series...and tuck in for a beautiful ride.
