In Starlight– the eagerly anticipated sequel to OF STARDUST!
Their wish was sealed…was their fate?
Young Fairy Godfather Gus Duncan is living his clan’s unfortunate family motto— Learn to Suffer — to a greater degree than he ever dreamed. The woman he loves is withering away beneath the burden of memory, of one perfect night with him she was supposed to forget.
Facing a reality he never imagined, he must make the decision of his life: shatter the most sacred rule in the fairy code, or lose his beloved Till forever.
Can true love save her when even magic fails?
First things first: I’ve never been a huge fan of companion novels. Certain experiences in the past have caused me to become jaded. I feel as if I’m reading the exact same story as the original, just from someone else’s point of view. Generally that’s the case, and it’s just not my thing. I usually feel like I got enough of the story the first time around. Unless there’s enough of a contrast from the first book, there’s simply no good reason for me to read the other characters side.
With that said, I was pleasantly surprised by Gus’ story in this sequel. He was an intriguing character in Of Stardust so I felt compelled to know more about him when I heard about this second book. In Starlight took me on a new journey, deep into the heart of Gus’ world, and that’s what I liked most about it.
In Starlight is another fantastical tale by February Grace filled with magic and romance — my favorite kind of fantasy. While the authors style is very whimsical at times, I appreciate the thought that goes into breathing life into her characters. I’m glad I decided to take a chance with this one. If you enjoyed the first book, you’ll certainly want to shoot for the stars again with this sequel. I mean, hey… it is Gus! *swoon*
