Series: Fallen Star #3
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Gemma thought she was trapped—that Stephan had finally won. But then time resets and she’s given another chance.
The clock is ticking as Gemma tries to figure out how to change the vision that ends the world in ice. If she can, then maybe she can save the world from Stephan and give her and Alex a chance at a real future. But changing visions can be dangerous, and sometimes one small mistake can lead to disastrous results.
Time and time again, I’m drawn into the Fallen Star universe with a stunningly clear view of what’s going on. I’m reminded very much of Harry Potter in that this series is as sequentially sound as a fantasy series can get.
In The Fallen Star, Gemma discovers she’s half of a fallen star.
In The Underworld, Gemma rescues her mother from The Underworld.
In The Vision, Gemma corrects the vision that set the world on a path to destruction.
So I can only assume that in The Promise, Gemma and Alex’s promise will come fully into terms.
There’s something solid and believable in the direction of the series that I can appreciate. It’s not as if things always go perfectly, either. In fact, at the expense of eloquence by sacrificing my vernacular to such an overused phrase, the stakes climb higher than ever in The Vision.
I can say with full satisfaction that this has turned into one of my favorite series and I’m gonna read The Promise even more excited than ever because of the impending release of Jessica Sorensen’s re-imagining of the series with Shattered Promises and the spin-off series, Fallen Souls. I’m keeping my eye on Sorensen. She writes my kind of guilty pleasures, for real.
