My Review

Not every time will a five star first book be followed up in equal or better fashion.   Have no fear here, this book definitely will not disappoint.  I’m so in love with this series, I’m not sure I can wait for the next book.  David has created something very magical.

There isn’t peace in the realms.  There isn’t peace for Tristan and Adele.  This story is full of action and subtle romance done in the best way that you miss nothing.  This couple is like star-crossed lovers in this book, never getting a break with everything to lose.

Tristan left the sun, Adele fled the moon and they end up in the Star Realm.  We meet a few more interesting characters to add layers to the already complex but exciting series.  I was full of anticipation throughout and wasn’t disappointed other than it ending.

Overall, stellar read.
