Publisher's Summary

For 18-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.

the best

This is my favorite book I have ever read. A good thing about audio books is that if u have the regular book and the audio and your reading before bed but you get too tired to read anymore u can continue to listen to the book. AMAZING

Absolutely awful!

I hardly ever write reviews on books, like art, I think of them as subjective. Fortunately for you, I have been left with this burning need to express my thoughts. I have just finished "The Fallen Star" this is the first book in the series. I struggled to finish this book. I 'll start by telling you, I hate giving bad reviews. Alternately, I have decided to prepare future readers who are considering this book. Here goes: You should definitely read this if you are a fan of weak, clumsy, immature, and intellectually challenged heroines. If cringing in displeasure while you read really gets your juices flowing, stop looking, this book is perfect for you. If you get a kick out of wondering if you should continue reading, while fearing you might be losing brain cells, then you have struck gold. Like mysteries? Please check this out, it will have you on the edge of your seat curiously questioning how a wishy-washy, obvious hater of the female gender, and generally unfortunate writer got published. Not only does this story offer a chaotic and barely defined plot, you will also get a cast of under developed characters who lack balance. If what I 've said has you excited and raring to read this, don't hesitate you have found your book. Oh! I can't forget to share this, it also comes with a cliff hanger ending, so your fun does not have to end when the book does. The author has generously written more in this series for you to enjoy.

Good Story BUT

This is a 4 book series that I started on audible escape but the 3rd book you have to pay for.

1, 2 and 4 are free on A.E.

I won't be investing anymore time into the series until they fix that.

Ebook first, now audio

Read this book first as an ebook. Enjoyed enough to reread it now that it’s on audio. It is very much a YA book. Teen drama, over the top stuff here and there but if you let yourself lean in to it and not take it too seriously, it’s such an enjoyable escape.

Grammar?

After hearing the phrase "Could have cared less" two times, when clearly is should have read "Could NOT have cared less", I decided that there was no way I could finish this story. The dialog and basic grammar is terrible.
