Audrey Whitticomb saved her entire city.
Well, kind of. The superhero Morning Star (who just happens to be Audrey's mom) might have played a small part, and her sidekick, Leon—Audrey's sort-of boyfriend, who is gorgeous... and frustrating—maybe helped, too.
But after two peaceful months, there is a vicious new threat in Minneapolis. Her name is Susannah, and she's a Harrower, a demon hell-bent on destroying people like Morning Star, Leon, and Audrey—the Kin. Like others before her, she seeks the Remnant, a Kin girl who has the power to unleash the inhabitants of the Beneath. But to what end?
Audrey already has a ton on her plate: dealing with her best friend Tink's boy drama, helping her other best friend Gideon figure out his nightmares, and exploring the highs and lows of "dating" Leon. But when she develops a powerful new ability, Audrey seizes on the chance to fight, despite her mother's protests and Leon's pleas.Read more ›
Burn Bright takes place two months after the events that took place in Dark Star. After encountering a Harrower using the name Susannah, Audrey discovers that there’s a new, powerful threat in her city. One who is targeting the Kin. Now a new remorseless Guardian has been showing up wherever Susannah is and tries to kill her. Audrey has no idea who this new Guardian is or why Susannah is doing what she’s doing.
Right now Audrey is just trying to get used to her life right now: Tink is having boy and Kin drama, Gideon has been having terrifying nightmares that Audrey can’t explain and her relationship with Leon is beyond confusing. Out of nowhere Audrey suddenly finds herself with a brand new ability that leaves her more powerful than she was and now all she wants to do is fight against Susannah and save her city again. When Audrey does discover what Susannah is after she learns that she’ll need to find the Remnant before Susannah does, but when she does she learn a devastating truth.
In Burn Bright the stakes are raised. Audrey not only finds herself with a lot of people depending on her but she also holds the fate of something she cares for most in her hands (and I can’t say what because spoilers guys).Read more ›
Audrey's mom is the superhero Morning Star, who has saved the city more times than anyone can count. But Audrey discovered the truth, that she and her mom are a part of a group that fight demons and protect the world. And two months ago Audrey, not her mom, saved the world. Since then Audrey's been training and getting to know her powers better...and oh yeah, dating her mom's partner Leon. But a new threat has arrived and she is a Harrower named Susannah, a demon hell-bent on destroying the kin. Can Audrey figure out why Susannah is around and save the day again? Or will she discover things that were best left in the darkness?
I have to admit I was excited to see that Dark Star was just the first book in a series. Yes this book is probably most likely geared towards teenage girls, but come on! We've got a girl superhero. Do you know how often that happens? And one that isn't about being the "perfect" girl or trying to be Superman or one of the other male characters. Instead she's herself. A young, teenage girl attempting to figure out who she is, what powers she has, and just surviving normal everyday life. It's a great type of book and character to have around. In this book we get to see that Audrey has grown into understanding a bit more about herself and the world around her. We also get to see that she is beginning to learn, that evil isn't always evil...and good isn't always good. That the line blurs often and sometimes sacrifices are made for the greater good of the world. And that's what makes this book so different from other paranormal teen girl series. It isn't the focus on makeup and trying to be older, its the focus on figuring out who they are and who they don't want to be that makes this such a great series.Read more ›
