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 loved the introduction to new characters in this book - Rowan, Cali's sister and Singer, Rowan's daughter. Singer quickly became one of my absolute favourite characters because of her wit and sarcastic nature. I instantly warmed to her, even though some people didn't! However, it was great to catch up with all our old favourites again and I very much enjoyed the multiple viewpoints in this book; Kellen's, Gabe's, Singer's and Cali's. What struck me more with this book than the others is how easily identifiable the characters were based on their individual narratives. By this I mean that if Steph hadn't mentioned who each chapter belonged to, I probably would have been able to guess based on how they talk and I think that's a very talented thing to be able to do.
I read this book so quick, as a huge fan of the first two I was so incredibly excited to see how it would all end and come together and personally, I think the ending was perfect. The last line in particular. The entire story is mind-blowing with imagination and I think it all got tied up perfectly. The time and effort that must have gone into this series to make everything flow and make sense - even in a completely imaginary world that doesn't make sense - is incredible. I remember reading the first book and thinking what a talented author Steph was and now, after finished the last instalment I still admire the incredible story she's told here. I'm still waiting to hear that the film rights have been bought.
