The Star Child Blog Tour – Review

Goodreads description :

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?

Review :

Atention , this review contains some spoilers !

The Star Child presents Kellen St James hard life . The relation that he has with his father is bad/inexistent . Kellen’s fanther acted awful with his son after his mother’s death . Kellen was little when this happened , but the age is not a problem for his father who sends Kellen to a boarding school . After finishing the boarding school classes Kelles went to The University of Yale at he graduates at only 17 years old . I am sure that you may think that this would make his father pride of his son , but no ! He is not pride ! This man has no soul ! He buys Kellen a sport fancy car , he thought that he could buy his sons love , but he was wrong . Kellen did not care about the car – he is selling it for just one dollar and he decides to leave – In IRELAND . Maybe there he will find his happines !

He was going to live in his grandmother cottage , she died unfortunately , but she took good care of Kellen . She leaves him her house and money .

Since Kellen was younger , he had always dreamt a girl . He always had thought that she is not real , that she exists only in his dreams . He was wrong , she was real and she had a message for him . The girl’s name is Calienta ! She let Kellen know that he has to save the world from the darkness ! This was written in the prophecy ! Of coure Kellen didn’t belived her !

Is Kellen going to beleive Calienta’s words  ?

Yes , he is going to beleive her , but it is not easy for him . For the prophecy to be accomplished , Kellen and Calienta are traveling in another world , the Celtic underworld where faeries and demons, angels and god lived .  This underwold is dangerous . Hellhounds are following Kellen , they are trying to spot Kellen .

Is Kellen going to escape from the Hellhounds ? Will Kellen succed ?

You will find the answers by reading the book !

Favourite character :
It is hard for me to decide who I love most : Kellen or Calienta ? I love them both ! They are wonderful created and very well contured in the book . You can fell what they are felling … I loved everything about them! I loved Kellen courage ,  he is indeed a true hero !

The Star Child is amazing ! I love the wonderful world the Stephanie Keyes creater , I love all the mythical creatures in it . I adore her writting style .

If you still have not decided if you want to read The Star Child , I am not reavealing that this is not a story just about saving the world . It is a love story , too .  Kellen and Calienta are going to fall in love , you will love them both ! They are a wonderful couple !

The Star Child is a story about a human hero , in a magical world , a story about truth , a love story ….

I am dying to see what is going to happen next !

You should all read it ! It is impossible not to love this wonderful book !
