Spin Off Awesomeness
on October 1, 2012
Whoa. If you guys thought that the Fallen Star Series was good, you're in for one of the best surprises of your life!
I'm now hopelessly addicted to Sorensen's story-telling. She strings you along with suspense, mystery, romance, and action, forcing you to continue reading to uncover what'll happen next.
This novel has risen even more questions in this stewing brain of mine, and just wow. We start to see romantic tension, and Gemma starts to succumb to The Lost Soul that has invaded her.
Alex, Nicholas, and Laylen all fascinate me, but I've gotta say that Alex is my favorite. His undying devotion to Gemma takes my breath away! I was literally so moved that my eyes stung with tears. And there was quite a bit of humor that got me chuckling in this book, too.
The imagination and planning that goes behind a series like this astounds and inspires me! There's so much going on, and so many people who all have their own secrets, and I have a feeling I'm in for a long, fun ride with this series.
I'm liking the possessed Gemma, too. I feel like - in a way - these are her repressed feelings. The desire, the hatred, the thirst for power. Like Helena is her polar opposite or something. My stomach was churning just by reading about the things she did while under Helena's influence. And the menacing Laylen. Oh, how you make my heart flutter! Why do I always fall for the bad guys? *Sigh*
Loved this! Will definitely be looking out for the next one! ;)
