Unlike chuckels the clown under me, I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was a nice change of pace to not have the male lead falling all over the female and I will keep reading books from this author. :) KEEP WRITING!!

I must be one of the few people on the planet who did not hate Bella in the Twilight books! I actually liked her because of her faults. But if you hated Bella, prepare yourself for the pathetic female that goes by the name of Gemma. She is whiny, cries all the time, lets Alex treat her like dirt yet won't stay away from him(cue more crying and self loathing whining). She just goes on and on obsessing about Alex until I wanted to strangle her. Then I have to mention her superpower when she first sees him. From the distance she was at she couldn't work out how tall he was but could perfectly describe his green eyes and shade and style of his hair. Must be an X Men thing or something.

Alex is the asshat from hell who is downright cruel to our beloved doormat heroine. I just hated him full stop. And you know of course that love is suddenly going to come. Well sorry mate, I'd tell you where to go. Sadly that never happens and girls in YA writing remain spineless and walked over.

Bad characters aside, the writing was not great either. Poor sentence structure, badly edited, and a plot that made me want to tear out my hair. It is a poor copy of Twilight as others have said in their reviews and I thought it was pretty darn bad.

I'm done with books by this author.

Loved it! Can't wait to read the next one. Found myself getting a little too involved in the story... ^-^ and Jessica Sorensen's witty sarcasm had me chuckling through the whole read.

I truly and thoroughly enjoyed reading “The Fallen Star”! Gemma, the main character, is still learning to deal with her newly awakened emotions, when Alex and his sister, Aislin, arrive at school. With their arrival, Gemma's life changes as she discovers that magic, witches, vampires and the monsters from her nightmares are real. As though that is not enough, she also starts having visions and becomes aware of some painful, scary secrets concerning her background. In the end she does not know who to believe or trust and betrayal becomes a nasty reality.

This book hooked me from the very first paragraph. Non-stop action, nail-biting suspense and monsters that can freeze their victim to death, kept me turning the pages. The well-crafted characters are realistic and their interaction can be highly amusing as well as touching. Gemma's inner dialogue had me smiling most of the time and her smart mouth made me laugh out loud.

The light romance between Gemma and Alex is tastefully worked into the story. Amidst the action and monster dodging there is also a fair amount of sadness that definitely brought tears to my eyes.

“The Fallen Star” is, however, not just all action and monster fighting but also about coming to terms with betrayal and the testing of loyalties. I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages and, as it ends with a magnificent cliff hanger, I, for one, can't wait to get hold of the next book in this series. Five Stars and a thumbs up for “The Fallen Star” and an excellent author! (Ellen Fritz)
