But before I tell you how awesome In Starlight is (and believe me, it's all kinds of awesome), I have to say that this was complete marketing fail. I flailed and fangirled over the first book, convinced I'd found something amazing, and I rushed to give it the five star review it deserved. But despite reading hundreds of books each year and constantly trolling tour sites, retail sites, and review sites, I had no idea that this sequel even came into existence just a few weeks after my review of Of Stardust. That's just not right. It took 17 months for word to reach me that a sequel was out, and even then, I'm sure it was just random Amazon algorithm luck. The first book had 37 written reviews on Goodreads, whereas this one will only have 6 -- after I've posted mine. Seems to me this one was very quietly published and then left to languish, which is ridiculous when you consider how wonderful Grace's writing really is. Anyhow...
In Starlight picks up where Of Stardust left off, with Till and Gus feeling way more than they should for each other but knowing that to admit that would be a death sentence. Since fairies aren't allowed to "fraternize," the closest they come to romance is Gus's one wish being granted, a single night they shared together, after which Till would remember nothing. But Gus is falling apart inside, having to treat Till as nothing but a friend, and Till's acting more than a little strange as well. While their roommate seems to be falling off his rocker, Till is forgetting things, losing entire moments and scenes, her mind going surprisingly and suddenly blank, and Gus can't figure it out.
There's a strong undercurrent of sadness throughout the story, and the more I read, the more I was praying for some kind of miracle that would allow Gus and Till to finally, truly be together. Whereas Of Stardust had a whimsical feel to it, a sense of discovery and the excitement of believing in magic, that magical existence has become a sort of emotional prison in this book. Gus and Till, no matter what they are feeling, cannot allow anyone to even suspect that they love each other, and it's killing Gus that Till has no memory of their one night together.
But things aren't quite what they seem, and Till's memory lapses are more than just strange forgetfulness; they're the worsening result of denying her heart and trying so desperately to keep things in the friend zone. Add in one crazed Fairy, some magical fighting, and that miracle I was praying for, and we've got one amazing conclusion to Gus and Till's romance.
You will be happy that you did.
We catch up with Gus and Till after the end of the first book where Gus had his one true wish granted. The book is told from Gus’s point of view which was refreshing as Of Stardust was told from Till’s point of view.
Gus is trying desperately to keep his feelings under control as he doesn’t want Till to know what has happened between them. As Till grows more distant Gus begins to wonder why, especially as she begins to forget things.
Gus and Till are really lovely main characters, I found myself liking them more and more.
This is a really great story about fairy godparents, I really liked the characters in the first book and I grew to love them more in this. I was really shocked that one of the characters turned out to be so evil, but I won’t spoil the book by telling you who this is, you need to read it to find out.
I love Bru’s books and would recommend them to anyone who likes a fantasy with added romance.
