Book Review: The Star Child by Stephanie Keyes
The world is about to be cloaked in darkness. Only one can stop the night. Kellen St. James has spent his entire life being overlooked as an unwanted, ordinary, slightly geeky kid. That is until a beautiful girl, one who has haunted his dreams for the past eleven years of his life, shows up spinning tales of a prophecy. Not just any old prophecy either, but one in which Kellen plays a key role. Suddenly, Kellen finds himself on the run through a Celtic underworld of faeries and demons, angels and gods, not to mention a really ticked off pack of hellhounds, all in order to save the world from darkness. But will they make it in time?
The Star Child is a fantastic story YA urban fantasy that delves into the world of Celtic Myths and faeries,.
Kellen St. James life has never been easy, but he hasn't let the events control his life either. Right after graduation he leaves the US for Ireland, and things take flight from there when he finally meets, Calienta, the girl who's been a regular feature in his dreams while growing up.
Through Kellen, we get to know the reason she appeared in his life, join him as he finds his true purpose, his calling.
The Star Child a wonderful read. Ms Keyes descriptions are vivid, the story very well written and fell in love with Kellen and Calienta. It was good to see Kellen finally accepted his purpose, didn't back down, and followed his heart. His love for Calienta. Looking for a story filled with adventure, action and romance? I highly recommend this book! I look forward to reading The Fallen Stars.
Overall: 5 stars
