Eighteen-year-old Tatiana is running from her past and her star-touched powers. Her power to heal may be overshadowed by more destructive abilities. Fleeing the persecution of those like her, Tatiana seeks refuge in a small town she once visited. But this civil haven, in a world where society has broken down, is beginning to crumble. Will Tatiana flee or stay and fight for the new life she has built? Only by harnessing the very forces that haunt her can Tatiana save her friends and herself.

Interesting, and original

I haven’t listen to or get into many apocalyptic type books, but this one was a bit different. No zombies or diseases, but a very interesting catastrophe. The characters were very original with a couple typical bad guy types. The unfolds in a pretty fulling way and keeps your attention to the very end where you’ll be looking through audible to find the next installment. The narrator was great! Characters were distinct and recognizable, very well spoken. Thanks for the opportunity to review this book!

Surprisingly epic!

So I started this book off a bit skeptic.. was worried it was just some religious filled book that would just annoy the crud out of me. BOY WAS I WRONG! This book was flippin EPIC! Strong female lead, dope powers, and hands down one of the coolest sidekicks ever! Steve Campbell did an amazing job narrating this story, and I am beyond excited to fill my earholes with the next book! I recommend that if you’re on the fence about this, jump over and listen, it’s well worth it!

I very much enjoyed this story

I really liked this book. Kaplan does an excellent job in telling this story, I liked the way he uses flashbacks to fill in the storyline and it helps to develop the character. Steve Campbell does a very good job in narrating the story. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Very much worth your credit

This story caught me off guard at how good it was. Just seemed like I had started and then I was done. It was storytelling on a grand scale and sucked me in. The Narrator was good at keeping you very engaged and bringing the world to life. I was given a free copy of this audio in return for an unbiased review.

Dystopian Fantasy

I really enjoyed this story and I will not be spoiling anything but I do feel the need to start with my age rating as a parent previewing books for my kids. Morality rating -PG 13 to R - There is some mild language, violence and mature sexual content. This is a darker story being in the dystopian category and it does get into what happens to women and little girls when society falls apart and how they can be raped and/or be forced into prostitution. This was a great twist on a dystopian novel mixed with a fantasy. Everything has been destroyed and the people are starting over but parts of the population have been "star touched" and people are afraid and untrusting of them and their abilities. What would be challenging in normal circumstances is taken to new levels. This story bounces around a lot between past events and current among the main characters so it does take a level of concentration to keep up with it all and not get lost. I do think it starts off a bit confusing and slow but it is definitely worth the effort to stick with it.

Powerful Fantasy

So, I loved everything there was to love about this book from poor star-touched Tatiana to her amazing little sidekick. After a lifetime on the run for her powers, Tatiana has finally found a place she can call home. Not everyone accepts her, but for once, she is at peace, and she is content with that. There is something shady going on in her new town though, and the city she comes to love begins to crumble. Every character had a unique personality, and this book gave off an old southern cowboy vibe. All in all, it was a very enjoyable story for dystopia and fantasy fans. Oh, and the narration was spot on! This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Quite Imaginative

I really enjoyed this story. The storyline showed some excellent imagining by A.L. Kaplan. The timeline changes were at times a little confusing in the audiobook format, but not so much that the story suffered. I look forward to additional books. Steve Campbell was excellent. I enjoyed his change in character voices. Made it easy to distinguish between characters. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Dystopian Post Apocalyptic Fantasy

This is an interesting post apocalyptic mystery with flash backs from the past to fill in the blanks. Tatiana has gone through so much! I really connected and felt her pain and loved her awesome “little” companion! Narration was well done and brought the story to life and kept me engaged from beginning to conclusion. Although this is under teens, I would say this is more of an young adult fantasy. There are some dark elements with mature sexual elements that could be triggers for some people that have endured abuse and violence. The characters were well developed and the story flows at a great pace. It really picks up towards the end! There are some unexpected developments and some people are not what they seem. I’m looking forward to book 2. I’m curious to see how this story progresses. Thankfully, no major cliffhangers! “I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review”

Well done

This is a well written start of a series that I can't wait to see where it takes me. The characters are well developed and fun to explore the world with. The narration is perfect for the story and really helps draw you in. A great listen. I received a copy of this book at my request in exchange for a fair review.

I really enjoyed this!

I wasn't sure what I was expecting going into this book with its unique mix of fantasy and post-apocalyptic fiction. But I can safely say that I was happily surprised by how engrossed I became by the world built throughout Star Touched. Highly Recommend it!

not just a YA

very well written, with a mature story and no forced romance. the characters are interesting and well rounded. the world feels like it's more than just a backdrop. very much worth your money Steve delivers a great performance in this book giving voice to the characters far better than my own brain could had I been reading it. nor much higher praise than that I would say

Promising dystopian post-apocalypse fantasy

I have to admit I did enjoy the first half of the book than the last. I really liked the slow pace of getting to know Tatiana and her dog Fifi, how she slowly builds up friendships while gradually learning about the cataclysm and her powers. Some people might be the other way and enjoy the hectic pace and action of the last third of the book. The narrator was good and didn't distract me from the story and break my immersion. I would recommend this and I'm intrigued enough to want to listen to the further instalments. [Note - I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.]
