Publisher's Summary

Audrey Whitticomb has nothing to fear.

Her mother is the superhero Morning Star, the most deadly crime fighter in the Twin Cities, so it's hard for Audrey not to feel safe. That is, until she's lured into the night by something human and not human - something with talons and teeth, and a wide scarlet smile.

Now Audrey knows the truth: her mom doesn't fight crime. She fights Harrowers - livid, merciless beings who were trapped Beneath eons ago. Yet some have managed to escape, and they want Audrey dead just because of who she is: one of the Kin.

To survive, Audrey will need to sharpen the powers she has always had. When she gets close to someone, dark corners of the person's memories become her own, and she sometimes glimpses the future. If Audrey could only get near Patrick Tigue, a powerful Harrower masquerading as human, she could use her Knowing to discover the Harrowers' next move. But Leon, her mother's bossy, infuriatingly attractive sidekick, has other ideas. Lately, he won't let Audrey out of his sight.

When an unthinkable betrayal puts Minneapolis in terrible danger, Audrey discovers a wild, untamed power within herself. It may be the key to saving her family and her city. Or it may be the force that destroys everything - and everyone - she loves.

    "More vampire than super hero"
    What did you love best about Dark Star?

    Thought it would be about super heroes like in the comics, but this is more like vampires and vampire fighters....... but still good

    "Exciting!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to Dark Star. The narrator's voice was a little hard to get used to at first, but I thought she did a pretty good job with the story and portraying the different characters and emotions. The story itself, was a bit slow to get started with, but was exciting to listen to from start to finish. Can't wait to read the sequel (hopefully there will be one)! I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys YA sci-fi or fantasy (it's worth the credit)!
