About the Author
Kelly Hashway grew up reading R.L. Stein’s Fear Street novels and writing stories of her own, so it was no surprise to her family when she majored in English and later obtained a masters degree in English Secondary Education from East Stroudsburg University. After teaching middle school language arts for seven years, Hashway went back to school and focused specifically on writing. She is now the author of three young adult series, one middle grade series, and several picture books. She also writes contemporary romance under the pen name Ashelyn Drake. When she isn’t writing, Hashway works as a freelance editor for small presses as well as for her own list of clients. In her spare time, she enjoys running, traveling, and volunteering with the PTO. Hashway currently resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter, and two pets.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

A fast-paced read full of live constellations and a princess who kidnaps children to fight in her war against the fallen constellations. Throw in the fact that humans can't survive in this world - they start to fade away, a fate worse than death. Now, hopefully this caught your attention!
I loved how the author made the story about constellations! It was a different and refreshing read - a definite must read!
Full of shadows, constellations, training, betrayal, action and love.
Perfect for readers of fantasy romance/ Greek mythology.
This was a really cute fast read, filled with adventure, danger and of course some pg-level romance. I sat down with it one afternoon and realized I reached the end without realizing that time passed. If you are looking for some fun that is unlike any other story I have read before, than this is a good choice.
The world building was hands down the best part of the story. Constellations come to life; I mean what could be more different than that. Ella finds herself in a kingdom at war, where almost all the adults are gone (dead?) and kids have been taken from her world to fight a war they may not win. The entire story was fast paced with new and different twists on the creatures and the other mysterious characters like the Princess, who I was not a big fan of regardless of everything. Ella (and not to mention the amazingness that was Avery) turns into a kick-ass soldier here to save the day (if she was lucky) and I did enjoy the ride.
This was the first book I have read by this author and I was not disappointed. I do feel like the story may be best intended for pre-teens or young teens because even though the main characters were 16, they felt younger and the content in general felt like it would be for a younger reader. I saw the romance coming from a mile away; it was pretty obvious who would win Ella’s heart. Think of this as a kind of Percy Jackson type story, but with a romance. I look forward to see what else the author has going on.
I received this title in return for my honest review.
Ella Andrews is worried sick after her friend Avery disappears. The police officer who is investigating Avery's disappearance doesn't seem interested in what Ella has to say. He's more interested in making the suggestion that Avery doesn't want to be found. Before long, Ella is chasing a shadowy figure in her bedroom. Soon, she finds herself following the figure into a world she has never seen before. She quickly learns that the police officer who was investigating Avery's disappearance is in this world - and so is Avery. In fact, the officer was the shadowy figure who lured her from her room.
Before long, Ella is swept up in a battle she doesn't want to fight - against some rogue constellations. This strange new world is called Stellaris, and the constellations can leave their places in the heavens and walk amongst the citizens of Stellaris. But a few of these constellations have begun to wreak havoc on Stellaris and are threatening the future of the world.
Melanie, the princess and daughter of the king and queen of Stellaris, has been kidnapping teenagers from Earth, including Ella and Avery. She needs an army to find her parents who have been kidnapped by the rogue constellations.
As people from Earth spend time in Stellaris, they begin to fade into the shadows, becoming nothing, and they can't return to Earth.
Can Ella, Avery, and the other teens from Earth help Melanie find her parents and stop the rogue constellations before all the teens fade into the shadows?
