Book Description

For eighteen year-old Gemma, life has never been normal. Up until recently, she has been incapable of feeling emotion. And when she’s around Alex, the gorgeous new guy at school, she can feel electricity that makes her skin buzz. Not to mention the monsters that haunt her nightmares have crossed over into real-life.

But with Alex seeming to hate her and secrets popping up everywhere, Gemma’s life is turning into a chaotic mess. Things that shouldn’t be real suddenly seem to exist. And as her world falls apart, figuring out the secrets of her past becomes a matter of life and death.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wouldn't recommend 23 Sept. 2013
By Linz86
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried to work through this book but only managed 21%. I really wanted to keep reading but the style of writing just annoyed me so much. Take this for example "If it wouldn't have been for a guy - whose name I think is Jason - scooting past us, i'm fairly certain we may have stood there forever, just starting at each other. But the Jason guy ruined the moment". It just seems very poorly written in my opinion and it seems to be jumping on the Twilight bandwagon. Everything is "crap" or "sucks" or "totally awesome". Unfortunately the writing has put me off completely and I won't be reading any further. Definitely not a book I would recommend, glad it's free as i'd be gutted if i'd paid for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea but ..... 29 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has me torn on whether to continue with the series. It is an interesting idea and has potential to be very good, and in parts it was, however i found the writing style difficult at times. Gemma the lead character frustrated me with her lack of ability to figure out what was going on and the love interest aspect lacked substance, however i think this probably would be explored in later books. As mentioned on other reviews the author did repeat phrases and the ending was disappointing. As it was a freebie I've given it 3 stars, however if i'd paid for it i would have been less friendly.

This was a really easy read and a great story. Its about a girl who realises as she starts feeling emotions that there is a whole world and life she didn't realise was out there and that she is the key to saving the world. As she finds out more, life seems to get more danderous. She doesn't quiet know who to trust, especially Alex who she has a connection with, though the electricity between them will lead to more. There are Keepers, witches, vampires and Fairies in this book and a great all round read. And the journey continues in this 4 book adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, just couldn't put this down 9 Nov. 2011
By Loula

Once I started reading this book I just couldn't put it down. I bought it as it was cheap & let me tell you, it's worth purchasing. Once I finished I logged straight back on to purchase the rest of the series.

It's addictive, fasinating, happy, sad, keeps you guessing... there isn't a bad thing to say. Great read & thank you to the author!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Review: The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen 30 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I should have known this was a bad idea from the length of the book on my Kindle homepage. It was more than twice as long as all my other YA books, which either indicated an epic adventure with lots of different characters and plot threads cleverly interwoven, or that it would be a bloated mess. From the synopsis I suspected the latter, and I wasn't wrong.

If you could call the wandering mess of a storyline a plot, then it started emerging maybe around chapter five or six? Prior to that was pages of needless whining from Gemma about her sucky life, school lessons, homework - the only mildly interesting thing being the introduction of potential love interest Alex.

Who despite being a complete and utter tw*t, is so dreamy and good looking, magically making electric sparks course through Gemma's body, that she falls for him instantly - her head emptying of all thoughts. Well. There weren't many thoughts going on in there anyway.

As main characters go, Gemma is about as vapid and stupid as they come. At one point, she overhears her guardians and Alex talking about Alex being sent to get close to her so they can learn her secrets. And she still questions what the hell is going on. Sorry, I should say `heck.' What the heck is going on. ARGH. This probably won't bother other people as much as it did me, but seriously, heck???? My nan says heck. If it was a little quirk of Gemma's that she didn't like to swear, I could buy it, but all the characters say heck, and it's just ridiculous.

So, Gemma is wilfully ignorant, crazy about the hot, controlling, abusive idiot that just happens to make her feel all fuzzy and electrified aannd... not much else. If she had any character traits they weren't consistently delivered or explored.

I chose 5 stars because it's really interesting and sad and happy. I liked it when Gemma Kissed Alex, but I hated it when Alex betrayed her. I would probably recommend it for 12+
