Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.
Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.
Cali has been taken…
Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?
Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?
I was very devastated when Cali and Kellen got separated in the ending of The Fallen Stars. I just wanted to dive into this story so I could find out about their journey once again. TSC picks up where TFS left off. Kellen always has Gabe, his best friend, for support and Gabe jumps right in to help him all while discovering that Gabe means much more to him (Kellen) than he thinks.
Kellen and Gabe set out to find Rowan, Cali’s mortal sister because she is the one that has the answers that they have been seeking. While visiting Rowan, Gabe meets Singer, Rowan’s daughter and he instantly feels something for her.
The group finally rescues Cali and Kellen and her finally get to really be married and have their wedding night but it is short lived because the long-awaited war has arrived. Kellen needs to decide whether to stay mortal or become a god in order to access powers to save the world.
First, I must say I love the covers in the series so much! The Star Child was a fantastic read and I enjoyed a lot! The Fallen Stars was still good but I felt it slacked a little bit. The Star Catcher comes in and it is beyond phenomenal! I love Stephanie Keyes writing, I love how descriptive and emotional her writing can be. She can really drag you in the story without you ever realizing it. And she succeeded once again in delivering the epic conclusion to The Star Child series.
In every book of the series, new characters are introduced. In TSC, Rowan and Singer get introduced and they play a major role in this story. The characters are very well portrayed and so in-depth and in-sync with the story. Fans of Young Adult Fantasy will certainly not be disappointed at all with this series. It is something different, something new, something extraordinary.
Stephanie, once again I applaud you for your entertaining and amazing series you have written. I cannot wait to read more works from this author!
