Pretty good series. Read it with my teenagers like I have done quiet a few series in the past. Pretty much PG rated lots of action. Just wish that the main character was a lot stronger. She fainted one too many times IMO..

After three books, my worst fear came true. Some authors get so caught up in trying to make an amazing ending that it is just not properly executed, rushed, and ends with nothing spectacular.

*SPOILERS*

I really liked this series. Each book held my attention and had a unique plot. However, there was just too much "meh" and brow furrowing to give this anything more than 3 stars. Honestly, maybe it's about 3.5 stars, at most, in my opinion.

Firstly, the use of acronyms. This is a book, it is literature, not an Instant Message chat. When the author used "WTF?" instead of "what the hell?" or even the F-word, it really peeved me. I know they're teenagers, but...come on. That was the preview for the disappointment I was in for.

The author used too much slang for me. When Alex said, "This do?" I had to re-read it many times to understand that he meant "will this do?" What would adding in one extra word hurt?

Then came the switching point of view...I really hated that. I had this image of Alex in my head of a guy who is afraid to show his feelings because of his past, and in one chapter that all changed. All he could talk about was Gemma Gemma Gemma. He was a love sick dog and it got tiring. The strong guy I had visioned in my head from the last 3 books was indeed...just a regular teenage boy. Instead of light teasing with Gemma, keeping us intrigued with their relationship, it was just full on flirting and again, boooring. I hoped that it would go back to Gemma's point of view after Alex came back, but it did not.

And to add on to the changing of point of view, at the beginning of each new chapter, there were like 3 paragraphs summarizing what I just read one page before. I found myself skimming because it was pointless to add that in.

No direct spoilers in this review but if you read on you'll probably be able to figure a lot out as you read the book. This book did a decent job of wrapping up the storyline but the ending was too simplistic. Everything that was any kind of action with regard to the conclusion was foreseen in advance, which meant when the end finally came there was little to tell. I felt that the "loophole" was pretty obvious well in advance too. In addition, I'm starting to get more annoyed with spelling and grammar errors in these apparently self-published books (it's a VIAL; vile is something disgusting, unpleasant or wretched!!). Overall I did enjoy the story though. Just felt that the repetitive things detracted a bit. Not sure if I'll read on into the next series with these characters.

WOW... just WOW!!! This author is just brilliant. Her books leave you lost for words. I was soooo sad that the Fallen Star series was coming to an end i swear i almost cried (much like when Vampire Academy ended). I didn't even know there was a spin-off series until i read it in one of Jessica Sorensen's interviews. and THANK GOD i found out because i was nearing the ending of this book and didn't know what i was going to do with myself. I have been reading ONLY Jessica's books for a couple of months now. If you want a good read i highly suggest getting all the Fallen Star series and check out her new book Ember.

I really enjoyed this series! Really every book I enjoyed. Not sure I could pick a favorite. On characters I do have my favorites of course it is going to be Alex and Gemma. I mean they are the main characters. There love for each other is very sweet. But Overwhelming to each other because of the whole star thing.
Knowing this series is ending is kind of bittersweet to me. I love the characters and the storyline that much.
I didnt really care for the ending of this book. I thought she could have ended it better. But knowing now that their is a spin off series makes me incredibly happy. I was ecstatic to find this out.
I liked the switching back and forth to Gemma and then to Alex. Although it did get confusing at times. I had to go back and check whose POV I was on. But it was a great idea.
I loved this series. Cant wait to read the spinoff series.

This final book in the Fallen Star series is, actually, not the final book at all. It is, but it isn't, if you follow what I just said. Having just completed the novel, I was sad to see that the series was over, especially because not all my questions were answered. However, at the very end of the novel I was informed that The Lost Soul is already out and it's a spinoff of the Fallen Star series. It's a new series, but it continues the story of Alex and Gemma. Happy dance, the story does continues!

In the fourth installment of the Fallen Star series, Sorensen gives the reader both Gemma's and Alex's viewpoint throughout the story. It's a first for the series, but I absolutely loved having two points of view and I hope this continues in the Fallen Soul series. Being able to follow both characters throughout the novel was amazing, especially as Gemma and Alex were away from each other throughout much of the story. This allowed me to stay connected to both characters as Sorensen begins to bring them back together again, which I really enjoyed.

I have to say that the ending wasn't really what I was expecting. Based on all the twists and turns within not only this novel, but also the entire series, I really thought there would be some sort of knock down drag out fight at the end in order to save both Alex and Gemma from death. There isn't. It all sort of neatly resolves itself, and while I love a happy ending, it did leave me scratching my head. However, like I said, there is a spinoff to the series, so it's not over yet, and I'm sure we'll learn even more enticing information and perhaps some of my questions will be answered as well.

Overall, I really liked this series and I highly suggest picking it up if you haven't tried and of Sorensen's novels yet.
